I look at the calendar and am flabbergasted that it’s already the last week in April. Wow! So here we are on another Monday, and instead of laboring to create my own ideas for a blog post, I’ve got two memes to do it for me! :D
1. Finish this sentence – I am glad it’s Monday because…
It’s a fresh start. I like fresh starts.
2. Where did you spend your last vacation?
Very few of my vacations are any longer then a day. So my last road trip was to The Cloisters in Manhattan. The museum is SIMPLY AMAZING. I wrote about it with photos on my other blog, if you are interested: The Cloisters, Washington Heights, New York City, Part 1.
The last overnight vacation was in Cobleskill, New York. My kids got to see Howe Caverns for the first time!
3. Who is your favorite author?
I’m a horribly fickle reader. I don’t think I have a favorite author. I guess I like C.S. Lewis, his stuff is very readable with a touch of humor. I like Mark Twain, for the same reason. I can’t think of anyone I follow.
4. What other Memes do you participate in during the week?
I participate in Meet Me on Monday pretty regularly when it’s available. Sometimes I do the Friday Fill In, and other times I do Wordless Wednesday. Meme participation really depends on my schedule. Wednesdays and Fridays are very busy days for me, so I don’t always do them. Mondays, on the other hand, are more relaxing.
Now it’s time for the other meme, Meet Me on Monday!
1. I keep putting off _________.
Weeding the garden. It’s… pretty weedy.
2. What is your current weather?
Pouring rain. Chilly. I don’t mind the cold but I have had this phobia about pouring rain ever since our property flooded in 2003, 2006, 2007, 2009, and 2010! We have had way too much rain in the northeast.
3. What is the nicest room in your house?
The kitchen. I renovated it in 2010. There are parts still not done, but it is so much better now!
I also renovated my dining room, too. I like the red walls.
This year, Lord willing, I hope to make my office/study the nicest room in the house. I have plans to redecorate it with a built-in shelving unit, new curtains, etc.
4. What jewelry do you never take off?
I rarely wear jewelry anymore. When I was younger, I loved the big bangle earrings. But I had little children who loved to pull on them– ouch! So I became accustomed to not wearing jewelry anymore.
5. Do you eat a snack before bed?
Nope. Sometimes I drink water or have tea. Big mistake.
As part of the Monday Quiz About Me, I get to ask YOU a question! Here it is:
If you got (another) pet, what do you think you’d name it?
