It’s Old School Blogging time again. This month, I am so thrilled to be co-hosting with Elaine from Miss Elaine-ous Life. Elaine is one of my very good blogging friends, and I am so honoured to be kickin’ it Old School with her! (Thank you, Elaine!) This month we are doing some great random questions that are always a fun way to get to know each other better.
What is the last thing you watched on TV? – Pokémon – my boys were watching an episode while I was in the living room this afternoon; I was trapped. I know way more about Pokémon than I ever would have thought possible.
When did you last step outside? What were you doing? – Yesterday. I was helping a sleepy little boy from the car inside the house after a day trip. I was kind of hurrying because it was chilly. A lot of my outside time lately involves return trips from the house to the car. We are hibernating.
What is on the walls of the room you are in? – Wedding pictures and a plaque that says “Happily ever after…”
If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy? – After I pay off all our debt and make sure that the boys’ education funds are taken care of? I would plan a trip to Europe.
Tell me something about you that most people don’t know. – I eat my M&Ms in pairs and must match the colours – but only if they are in a bowl. If I eat them out of the bag – at the movies, for example – I can eat them without pairing them up. It is one of my quirks.
Who made the last incoming call on your phone? – My friend called me this morning.
If you could change something about your home, without worry about expense or mess, what would you do? – We have textured stucco walls on our living room and hallway – I would love to have smooth walls, but we are neither handy nor willing to shell out the money to have it done right now. So we will live with the walls for a while longer.
What was the last thing you bought? – I bought painting supplies – we are painting our kitchen.
Would you go bungee jumping or sky diving? No – neither of those options is my idea of fun.
If you could eat lunch with one famous person, who would it be? I have two answers to this question. Because it did not specify a person living, my first choice would be Jane Austen. And it wouldn’t even have to be lunch – I’d settle for tea or a coffee. If it can only be a famous living person, my first thought was Emma Thompson – because she is smart and funny – and she wrote the screenplay to one my favourite Austen adaptations, Sense and Sensibility.
Which store would you choose to max out your credit card? I am trying to avoid maxing out my credit card, but if I could do so without causing undue stress, I would pick a store that has great cameras and photography stuff.
Is the glass half empty or half full? Half full. (Most days, at least.)
What’s the farthest-away place you’ve been? England – I went over 10 years ago and would love to go back one day.
What’s under your bed? Would you believe this? I am always talking about my clutter but… there is NOTHING under my bed. I cleaned it out a couple of months ago and it is still clean.
What is your favorite time of the day? Early morning before the rush to leave the house starts. Everyone usually wakes up happy and there is coffee. I like the all the possibility in a brand new day.
What Inspires You? A favourite song, fresh air, nature walks, my children, the perfect phrase that gets stuck in my mind and stays there until I can write it, the quiet joy in a simple moment
