1. When it comes to good manners, what two top your list of most important?

Respect-I use to play the song ' R-E-S-P-E-C-T' years ago on the first day of school. With all the changes and all, I don't do this anymore.    Not only do most students not have respect, many young adults (late 20's-30's) are lacking in  this area.

Common Courtesies-saying thank-you, holding the door open for someone-letting someone go ahead of you in line

Weekend Rewind

Weekend Rewind

Beautiful weekend in my neck of the woods.  The color of the trees is breathtaking and the sky is gorgeous.  But I forgot to take pictures (ahem) and tonight I thought to myself how dingy I was for not taking any.

Daughter #2 opened up her pharmacy on Thursday.  Can I get a big Hooray!!!  There was an article in our local paper about her.

I am very proud of her!  She is putting in long hours and always has a smile on her face.  On Saturday, she allowed the Humane Society to come and set up in the parking lot adjacent to the building. Did I mention she is also an animal lover??

My calendar for the upcoming week is jammed packed!  Whew! I get a headache just thinking about all I need to do.  

Have a great week-I am going to try and get a jump start on the upcoming week!

1. What was your biggest worry five years ago?  Is it still a worry? 

Five years ago, father-in-law was very ill and he was like a father to me (my father passed away 3 years after hub and I married).  I was worried about father-in -law and daughters. Father-in-law passed away 4 years ago.  Today, I am worried about daughters-I think a mother never stops worrying-and I also worry  about hubs health.

2. Yesterday (October 15th) was National Grouch Day...what makes you grouchy? What cheers you up when you're feeling grouchy?

I am not really grouchy unless you see me first thing in the morning and all I need then is to get a cup of coffee in my stomach.

3.  In one word, how does it feel to be photographed?


4. Besides your parents, who would you say had the greatest influence on you in choosing your life path?  Explain. 

My paternal grandmother.  She was a Christian mother and grandmother.  Remembering back, she would always walk to church and take us with her-even though my grandfat…

Weekend Rewind

Sickness does take a toll on one, doesn't it?
It has been a little over a month since I have written.  Dealing with MIL's sickness has gotten the best of me.  MIL is 78 years old and has been in and out of the hospital for a month.  She is now home and needs constant care/supervision.  I am  mainly the caregiver here-and I am getting really tired-trying to juggle work, helping out at the coffee shop, and being a mother is wearing me out! I love MIL to death, but she is so hateful and contrary.  I have bitten my tongue many times and have taken longer walks with each episode.  Getting her to take her meds is a battle.  Who ever said growing old was great, is not telling me the truth. :( for venting.  I keep repeating this to myself:  God doesn't put anymore on me than I can handle-somewhere I have heard this and this has kept me somewhat sane.
On the bright side....
It was a gorgeous weekend.  The coffee shop was open after the football game on Friday.  

  I do enjoy this ev…

Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. What's one thing you learned in September?

Where did September go?

2. Acorn squash, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, yellow squash, zucchini squash, or blech! hold the squash... what's your favorite squash? What's your favorite way to prepare your favorite squash?

I am not much a fan of squash, but I will chose zucchini squash-prepare-saute this with onion and olive oil and serve immediately.

3. The older I get the_______________________________.

The older I get the more I realized how time goes by faster and faster.

4. What's your favorite television theme song ever?


5. What do you wish you'd spent more time doing five years ago?

Enjoying each day more and spending more time with family and friends.

6. What item do you most need (or want) to add to your wardrobe this fall?

Another pair of boots and a cute coat, hat, and scarf would be okay with me.

7. On October 2, 1950 the Pea…
