1. Just your weekly mid-week reminder that it's fall y'all and it's my favorite. I love nearly all the flavors of fall but let's weigh in with an either or today...pumpkin or cranberry? hot apple cider or pumpkin spice latte? cinammon or maple? apple or pear? ginger or sage? carrot or butternut squash? Yes you have to choose. What's a favorite dish made with one of the flavors listed here?
I dislike cooking! One day I will write a post about all my mishaps in the kitchen. A teacher had found a journal of my late daughter, Amanda, and she had written about one of my mishaps!! Oh Lord, the teacher couldn't believe it, but it was all true. With that ....I would have to choose hot apple cider. I would buy the cider, pre-bottled of course, heat it up and add a garnish of cinnamon stick. ta da!
2. Do you miss traveling? In this season of almost no travel do you think you've grown anxious or fearful about traveling again? Or has all this staying home not going anywhere made you restless to get out and see the world? What book have you read or what movie have you watched that has inspired you to travel?
I miss traveling. I will fess up and say that I am still fearful to travel. Many people I have spoken with are traveling with very little reservations but I just can't right now. AND staying at home by myself has taken a toll on me!
Into the Wild ...my brother lived in Alaska many years ago and I never visited. This movie made me kick myself in the behind.
3. A time you felt like you were 'flying by the seat of your pants'? Explain.
I can't think of a time. I am a planner...always scheduling things, making sure of every detail, thinking about all the stuff that can go wrong if I decide to do something, etc.
4. Do you struggle with road rage or are you more of a 'Sunday driver'? Do you like to be 'in the driver's seat (literally and/or figuratively speaking) ?
It depends on. If I am trying to get somewhere and running a tad late and then get behind a slow poke I can experience road rage. Usually, I try to remain calm because I know from experience (hub owned his own insurance company) that road rage leads to accidents!
On a nice, sunny day, and traveling on country roads, I am a 'Sunday driver' just taking my time enjoying the drive as the music blares in the background.
I wrestle with being in the driver's seat. Definitely a person who likes to be in control and with life throwing me a couple of curveballs lately, this has been difficult. I am a work in progress.
5. Something you've recently 'put the brakes on'?
Sadly, I have 'put the brakes on' letting people use their children to control me. Does it hurt? Hurt isn't the word for it. Many days and nights I am on my knees praying fervently to God to open a door and intervene.

2. Slow as molasses, icing on the cake, that's the way the cookie crumbles, have your cake and eat it too, half-baked idea, that takes the cake...which phrase might be applied to something in your life in recent days? Explain.
That's the way the cookie crumbles.
3. Something that's 'easy as pie' for you to do?
4. Are you someone who likes to 'sugarcoat' news you think might not be well received, or are you more of a tell it like it is and let the chips fall where they may? Do you like to receive your news the same way you give it?
5. Something you did recently that made you feel like a 'smart cookie'?
Finally, being able to multi-task on the computers I am using for teaching. I still have my moments, but I am feeling so much more comfortable.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
The School Board met Monday and students will be returning to school on a hybrid schedule October 26th.
