Weekend Rewind...

Hubs Did It......Finally!!

Hub has never wanted to fly.  As a matter of fact, he has only flown once and that was because of doctor's orders!

1. When I look at the sky I feel_____awe.___________________________________.

2. If you had to run for political office, which one would you run for? Do you have any real desire to actually do this?
Probably would run for the office of school board. I  could actually contribute something to this political office.  Never any desire to run for any political office!

3. What scent makes you think of home?

When someone is grilling out with charcoal.  Most everyone uses gas grills, but when I was growing up no such thing as a gas grill.  Neighbors would use charcoal and of course all of us kids would invite ourselves.  Today, I love smelling charcoal and my stomach starts growling.

4. How often do you take a step back to think about where you're headed in life? Do you need more or less self-reflection?

Very often.  Here lately, hub and I have been sitting outside talking into the wee hours of the morning.  So much talk revolves around where we were to where we are today.

5. July is National…

Weekend Rewi

Weekend Rewind....

Weekend Rewinds....might be better.
Interviews, Yard Sale, Races, In-service, and Moving.....(the list could go on and on)
  Hub is on our local Town Council and last Thursday was his first 'official' meeting.  A meeting hub was not looking forward to with re-appointments of officials and such.  Hub likes smooth sailing, but also wants to do what is best for our town.  He is one not to jump on the 'bandwagon' but votes on what he believes is right. Last Thursday, was that kinda of meeting.  After returning home from the meeting, I could tell he felt bad for someone but also relieved.  This was a very 'touchy situation' and he voted for doing what is best for our town. I don't say anything but just listen.  It was the wee hours of the morning before he was able to go to bed.  Earlier in the week, I had agreed to help hub in our Coffee Shop on Friday.  Now I have been getting up this summer with hub, but when the alarm sounded on Friday mor…

1. July is National Anti-Boredom Month. When was the last time you were bored? What's your go-to cure for boredom?

I tend to get bored easily.  Many people say I just need to slow down a little and enjoy doing nothing-hard for me to do.  When bored, I usually find something to do-read, clean, go for a walk/run, get on the computer and browse, sometimes I even bake!

2. What's the last thing you made a reservation for?

I have not made reservations in a long time.  Hub made reservations for a little get-a-way for us last month.

3. What's one thing on your summer 'bucket list'? Any plans to make it happen?

Travel to Charleston, South Carolina-something about this historic, seaside city I want to see.  Don't think this will happen this summer.

4. What's your favorite summertime sip?

Here lately, I have been enjoying

5. What .do you find is the best way to handle another person's hostility and hopefully ease the tension?

Not my area of expertise.  Hub is really go…

Weekend Rewind

Weekend Rewind....

I turned another year older on Thursday.  The older I get, the faster time goes by.

This was the first time our family was not together for the Fourth of July :(    I knew hub would not be his usual self-not only do I love family gatherings, but hub enjoys grilling out for all.    Each year it gets harder and harder to get us all together.
We have gone from this....

to only this

We did enjoy grilling out.

A beautiful, clear sky
and the temps were in the upper 70's.  Not bad for Fourth of July when temps are usually sweltering hot.  After eating we did sit and reminisce.  Because my birthday is the day before the Fourth of July, I always think back to what I was doing last year. So much has happened this year-some sad with the loss of our loved ones...

Hard to believe Charlie's Mom is no longer with us.Celebrating first holidays without our loved ones are hard.

1.  Speaking of 180...when was the last time you 'did a 180' on something?

Last night in Zumba class! I liked to have never gotten this move down!

2. It's Independence Week in the US of A! What's your favorite thing about America right this very minute? Favorites only! Let's hear what you love about America.

If you're playing along today, and you're not an American but have been to America, what do/did you like best about this country? If you've never been to America, do you have any desire to visit? What's the number one thing you'd like to see?

Freedom of speech-even though I dislike (that is a nice word) what is going on in Washington, I am still able to voice my opinion without being killed.

3. Stars or stripes? Red, white, or blue? Watermelon, homemade vanilla ice cream, or blueberry pie?

I must chose two--stars/stipes and watermelon.

4. When did you last see stars, figuratively speaking?

Sunday evening after returning home, I ran into my armoi…
