Sunday Stealing....


I am joining Bev Sykes of the blog, "Funny the World" 

Guest or Host

I have been a guest and a host .  I was a guest a few weeks ago in a friend's house and I felt like it was my home.  So no problem being a guest.

Host--sometimes I get so OCD when it comes to my house spotless, does everything match, do I have enough food, did I invite all, It can be overwhelming. 

I really don't know which one I would prefer!! Ha

When I feel fancy, I wear

I try something completely new

I very, very, rarely try something completely new.  Always afraid I will mess up and knowing me, I would!


They make me cry...until the reception.

Ever had something customized

Can't say that I have.  BUT I have received customized cups, calendars

Do you cook spontaneously or mean plan?

Since it is only me, I cook spontaneously, However, this last month, my grandson is playing basketball, so I have kinda planned out my meals...mainly making sure I have enough snacks on hand when I get home like cookies, potato chips and of course popcorn.

Books I have reread

None completely.  There are some books, I occasionally pick up and skim through every now and then.

I am really good at

 Too many things to list!! ahem   My friends often call on me to come and help them clean!

Windows Open or a Fan On while sleeping


Easiest Recipe

and it is so tasty!!!!

Conversing with strangers

I am somewhat comfortable starting a conversation with strangers; it just depends on where I am at the time.

Quiet or ambient noise when relaxing

Ambient noise when relaxing I like.  If it is too quiet, like hearing a pin drop, then that is not for me.

Most adventurous or exciting friend

It would have to be a ole college friend.  She is still adventurous...wanting to move clear across the country from Georgia to Colorado, raises ducks, etc.  It would definitely be my college friend/roommate.

When I can't decide what to eat, I eat


Funny pet stories

I don't have any pets (at the moment :)  )

Embrace MawMaw


Embrace my new name...

A few days ago I was able to embrace my adorable grandsons.  I love these boys to pieces.

They do bring me such joy in a time when I really need to find joy. 

These two are ready to eat.  When they say the word, "eat" you better have their food ready or it is a meltdown getting ready to happen. I helped daughter get their lunch ready and we all sat down to eat..and talk.  With me, it was mostly talk!  We talked about their days, what had they been doing, etc.  Somehow the conversation got around to talking about names.  I said my name was Tammy.  The twins tried saying Tammy (with a mouth full of food!) and then they would look at me and just smile from ear to ear. This little guy pipes up

and he says, "Your name aint Tammy it is MawMaw."  Trying to explain this...well it went right over his head.  In his little eyes, I was only MawMaw.  This name cracks me up because I tell daughter I don't look like a Maw.  When I hear the word, Maw, I picture in my head a little ole lady ,wearing a long dress with an apron ,and her gray hair in a bun. But, I started thinking, so what, my image is completely different from theirs.  I am a MawMaw.  I am going to embrace this new name and smile.
