1. August 24th is National Waffle Day...what's something you've 'waffled' on recently? 

Here lately, it has been yard work.  Just can't decide what to do!


2. Do you like waffles? Make your own or 'leggo my Eggo? Any favorite toppings or add-ins? Waffles or pancakes-which do you prefer? 

I do not like waffles, Eggo or pancakes.  Just never have liked them.

3. Do you have any momentos from this summer (or past summers)? What do you do with them? 

Yes, a beach bag (with my name and the place I was staying) and a container that will hold a beverage and my cell phone.  These are definitely items I will use again.  But the best momentos from this summer, are my memories.

4. One thing you'd like to do before summer ends? 

Before the summer ends, I would like to take one more boat ride on the lake as the sun is setting.

5. Life is too short to___________________________________. 

Life is to short to obsesses about the future or past.  Enjoy the present...it matters. 

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

Monday was daughter and hub's anniversary.  Her husband had planned a little get-a-way over the weekend.  He had rented a cabin, made reservations for dinner, and made reservations for a massage. Daughter had no idea about the plans.

I kept all three grandsons!!  I enjoyed every minute of this precious time, BUT I was exhausted on Sunday.  Keeping up with a 4 year old and two year old twins is not for the faint or weak!

Have a great rest of the week and Enjoy Life!

1. August is National Back To School Month...how does that make you feel? Share a back-to-school memory. 

Summer is over!!!  I started back to school on August 2nd and the students returned August 9th....WAY too early!!  Summer isn't over, but with the start of school most people think so.  Not me!!  I am still enjoying my summer.

A favorite back-to-school memory is my first day of high school and mKeey first day of teaching. Both were scary and exciting times.  I remember my mentor told me on that very first day of teaching what the goal was for that day....She said, we make sure all the students eat lunch and get on the right bus to go home!!  Wise words.

2. Something you've learned in 'the school of life'? 

Life is subjective and change is the only thing that is constant.

3. Three words to describe your current mood.

Overwhelmed, excited, and tired.

4. A summer food you've eaten too much of/are tired of? A summer food you haven't had enough of? 

I have eaten too much zucchini from my garden.  I was over flowing with zucchini and I learned how to fry zucchini, bake zucchini, freeze zucchini, make zucchini bread, and put zucchini in foods I would have never thought of.  I told people not to be surprised if they opened their car door and found zucchini there!

A summer food I haven't had enough of is home grown tomatoes.

5. What small stuff do you sweat that you know you shouldn't?

Keeping a clean house.  I pick up and do the everyday task but I sweat over not having my house spotless!!  I mean, who cares if my windows aren't spotless or there is a cobweb hanging off a light, no one but me!

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

We sure have had a lot of rain!!!  I am ready for some weeks of sunshine!
