Meet Me on Monday #47

June 6, 2011


I love Mondays. I like the fresh start to the day, the schedule ahead of me. Today it is actually sunny in Upstate New York! The air smells so good, and the peonies are blooming. Ahhhh! šŸ˜€

Plus, it’s Meet Me on Monday day! Here are this week’s questions and answers.


1. What is was the last piece of candy that you ate?
Hmm. Maybe a peppermint. I don’t eat much candy anymore. As a kid, oh how I craved it. Whenever we found a nickel (or, hearts a-flutter, a DIME!), my brother and I raced to the Penny Store to see what we could buy. We had a large family and my dad was always in between work it seemed, so candy was rare. Now that I am older, I don’t eat much candy. I prefer brussels sprouts, can you believe it?! Things sure have changed.

2. Do you “read” in the bathroom?
Yep. I can’t think of a time when I’m not doing at least two things at once, lol. Even when I am falling asleep or waking up, I am thinking of what I have to do, or pondering things. I haven’t read for leisure in a long time, though. I stick to mostly non-fiction (history and Bible studies), but lately I’ve been reading a few fiction books, to relax my always-busy mind. I just finished Dickens’ “David Copperfield” and Crichton’s “Timeline.” I’m reading “Reason for God” by Timothy Keller, next. And I just ordered a book by Frederick Artz called “The Mind of the Middle Ages: An Historical Survey.” Those are non-fiction, but look SO SO interesting that it will be like fiction to me. šŸ™‚ I was once a voracious reader as a young person, but having a bunch of kids and working a job cooled my interest. Now, I am back into it and it feels so good. šŸ™‚

3. I can’t stand when someone _________?
Tailgates. I greatly dislike it when drivers tailgate me (or anyone). It is more than rude, these creeps are putting themselves and other people in danger because they are in a blasted hurry. :rollpin:

4. Do you do daily, weekly or monthly grocery shopping?
Well, probably something between weekly and monthly. I don’t like shopping AT ALL. I avoid it at all costs. (See Question #3 as to why). Here in Central New York, we have “residential” areas and “shopping complexes” and both are far distances from each other. I do not like the setup. You have to drive several miles to the supermarket, fighting intense traffic all the way. It’s very stressful, and then because it’s the “complex,” there are always zillions of people shopping at the same time. So when I go to the store, I cram as much as I can into that cart and get outta there til the family begs me to go again!

I’ve heard that some online stores may be offering groceries AND grocery delivery. Oh, I would definitely go for that!

So how is your Monday? šŸ˜€

    I realized a few days ago that I’m totally oblivious to cars behind me. Not Good I Know!!!! I need to be more observant before I cause some kind of chain collision!

  2. Karen and Gerard Says:

    Glad you are enjoying reading some again. That shopping sounds like a big hassle, no wonder you don’t go often and hate it! Our stores are close by and we have several to choose from. We shop once a week. I never had brussels sprouts but am pretty certain I would prefer candy!

  3. Jo-anne Says:

    I’m with you about tailgaters. They just seem to be in such a hurry or they just don’t care about travelling a safe distance behind you.

  4. Beverly @ The Buzz Says:

    Tailgaters! Don’t like them either. I think I’m a pretty nice person–until I get behind the wheel of a car!

    I’m not a big candy person anymore either. For some reason, chocolate turns me off now too. Sigh. Isn’t that sad when we just want veggies???
