Meet Me on Monday #49

June 20, 2011


Oh I had a LAZY day yesterday, and it was SOOOO good. I bought a new patio set after our old one was destroyed by flooding in late April. This set is so much nicer! I trimmed the oak tree to make canopy so we could sit in the shade.


I’m trying to force myself NOT to work or blog on Sundays. Boy, it’s difficult! My fingers are just itching to do it. But a day of rest is important, so I am purposely spending less time on the computer that day, and more time hanging with the kids, hopefully outside. Yesterday was a real treat!


1. What feature of the opposite sex do you notice first?

Gee, I have no idea. Honestly, on first impression, I don’t think I notice a difference. Maybe it’s clothes. Guys usually wear t-shirts. That’s all I can think of. Besides maybe the hair style?

2. Do you talk to yourself?

Yep. Sometimes. Sometimes I’m praying or talking to God, too. What’s really odd is that no one seems to notice! Maybe folks in general notice things like that less because of those new-fangled Bluetooth devices. With those, it seems like everyone is always talking to himself or herself!

3. What is your current relationship status?

Married 22 years. I’ve been married more years, now, than I was single. I CAN’T BELIEVE how young I was!!!! I look at young people today, and think “I was married when I was younger than they are!” I was so unprepared for some of the ups and downs of the first years of marriage. I had no parents to guide me, being on my own since I was 17. It just solidified my conviction that the breakdown of the family has been very detrimental. Kids need their moms and dads. šŸ™‚

4. Do you have a garden?

Well…… yyyeeeeeaaahhhh. How’s it looking?


I haven’t had ANY TIME to start a garden this year. After fretting myself over it, I decided to just give it up this year. Maybe we will have some simple stuff (like zucchini), maybe we won’t. I just can’t do everything that has to be done around here all the time. The kids are too busy to help with it, not until summer vacation begins. So we’ll see how things are looking after then.

5. What is your favorite licorice flavor?

Licorice. Of course, lol! :mrgreen:

I like licorice. Some tea company– it is Stash?? — makes licorice tea. Oh it’s heavenly! You don’t need to sweeten the tea with honey or sugar, it’s perfect! I like to get it when fall weather arrives, as the scent permeates the house. I sometimes even carry the empty tea package in my shirt pocket, to smell it all day long. Yum.

So that’s it for this Monday! Have a great week!

    what are the tall things with the bulbs on the top? flower? weed? alien life form?

    Absolutely gorgeous! I’m so jealous of your shaded hide-out and beautiful area for a garden (even if it’s filled with weeds this year, I still want!). And I’m so glad you enjoyed a lazy day yesterday…with it being Father’s Day, I wish I could have done the same, but we ended up running here there and everywhere.

    Have a great day!

    That garden is so sad looking, just pitiful. At least you oak tree looks good and that new furniture underneath makes for an inviting and relaxing spot.

    I make it a point not to blog on the weekends much. I really need some time for outside now that it is summer and warm again. I have the whole winter to blog the nights away.

    Love the new patio set. šŸ™‚ The garden? Well….uh….
