From this Side of the Pond

1. Do you know much about (or understand) Artificial Intelligence (AI)? Does it worry or excite you? 

I don't understand much about AI.  It kinda worries me.

2. What was the last song you listened to? Your favorite movie soundtrack? What song always puts you in a good mood?  

Since I had the boys yesterday, it was "Ten Little Ghosts"!!  My favorite movie soundtrack...is Footloose and Remember the Titans.  A beach song or Contemporary Christian music usually puts me in a good mood.

.3. What were you doing ten years ago? 

 Probably making sure daughters were okay.  One was in pharmacy school and the other in DPT school.  I can't remember if anything special was going on other than this.  Summer was my time to go and visit them whenever I wanted to.  I loved surprising them and they loved my visits because I cleaned up their apartment and went grocery shopping for them.

4. Your favorite no-bake summer dessert?

Fruit desserts!  A charcuterie board with fruit!

5. Something you're looking forward to in June? 

Watching my garden grow!

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

Something I am not looking forward to doing  is giving my house a deep cleaning...windows, blinds, etc. 

This little fellow has enjoyed T -Ball this year, and I have enjoyed watching him.

1. May 24th is National Brother's Day. Do you have a brother? Older or younger? Did you raise brothers? Tell us something about your brother or tell us something about your own children who are brothers.

I have a younger brother.  My brother, Greg, is totally different from me.

2. A great book you've read or movie you enjoy that features brothers? 

I am drawing a blank on this one.

3. Something you think is overrated? Something you think is underrated? 

Something I think, my opinion only, is overrated is all these bachelorette excursions.  I think it is okay to get together with all before the wedding but going to Peru, Aruba, etc. is just a little too much in my book.

Something I think is underrated is teachers...haha!  I had to go with this.

4. How much does your past shape you? What parts have shaped you the most? 

My past has shaped me tremendously.  I do not take the 'little things' for granted.  Dealing with huge loses has shaped me the most.

5. What's your favorite simple pleasure? 

Sitting on my patio or in my hammock reading a good book.  I might indulge drinking a cool drink.

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

My daughter and her three boys have been staying with me.  When they returned from vacation, a terrible storm and knocked down a couple of trees near their lake house. The trees barely missed their house but other damage was done.  I love having these houseguests!!

A friend is coming to visit me this weekend before moving to Richmond, and I am looking forward to her visit.

Have a great rest of the week and Enjoy Life!!

1. What surprises you the most about people? 
What surprises me the most about people is their lack of disrespect towards others and how no one likes to lend a helping hand and help a neighbor out. 

2. Would you rather have a chauffeur, nanny, gardener, maid, personal shopper or cook? Tell us why that one? 

This is an easy one a cook.  I hate to cook/bake anything, but it doesn't bother me to clean the entire kitchen!

3. May 18th is National Notebook Day. No idea what that means but let's run with it anyway. What's something you currently keep in a notebook? Have you seen the movie The Notebook? On a scale of 1-5 how does it rate? (5=a favorite, can watch and re-watch and re-watch again) 

My morning devotions...I jot down my thoughts in a notebook.  I have see the movie and enjoyed it.  Right now, I don't think I could watch it again, maybe someday because to me it does capture what true love is about.

4. Do you like mushrooms? Last dish you made or ate that had mushrooms on the ingredient list? Your favorite dish that calls for mushrooms? 

I like mushrooms.  Last dish I made with mushrooms is spaghetti sauce.  My favorite dish is breaded mushrooms with Ranch dressing.

5. What would you say is the most annoying thing people do in public? 

ARGUEE!!!  Good grief! wait till you get home before arguing with your spouse AND ALSO go to a ballgame and listen to parents or spectators yell at the players...Oh my word!!  I feel so sorry for the players, I just can't believe another parent will tell a player, (who is not their child ) and I quote "You need to sit on the bench if you can't catch a ball."  How awful is this!!!

6. Insert your own random thought here.  

This is my last week of school with students.   Ready to enjoy all summer has to offer!
