2. May 11th is National Eat What You Want Day. What will you be having by way of celebration?
That was yesterday, wasn't it? Right...well, Mr. Fixit made chicken paprikash with noodles.
I ate some green olives in oil and basil from the gift box that my oldest daughter sent for Mother's Day.
Oh, and we stopped and got a couple of doughnuts (the really plain non-messy kind) and coffee while we were out driving around after supper. What we were driving around for was trying to find an outdoor garden section that was open, so we could buy a couple of flower baskets. However, the weather was so rotten out there that I think it would have been more pleasant to stand looking at geraniums in the middle of January, so we gave up and cruised around, picked up the doughnuts, parked by the lake and had a snack in the car.
3. Describe your idea of a perfect spring day.
Finishing the last of a package of mini cinnamon buns for breakfast, photographing violets in the postage-stamp back yard, working on the computer for awhile, stopping for a coffee break with my husband, having a package delivered (see #5), eating leftovers (#2) for lunch plus a piece of chocolate also from the box my daughter sent me for Mother's Day, going back to work while he goes out to pick up a couple of flower baskets to ornament our outdoors (the weather's better today), having little or no idea of what we're going to make for dinner and being okay with that all the same.
Oh yeah, that was today.
And you will notice I didn't say anything about the things we're not doing.
4. Success, fulfillment, growth, achievement...pick one and tell us how it relates to your life in some way, either currently or in days gone by.
Growth? Babies grow into children grow into adults. We ourselves and the ones we produced. The one who had the butterfly birthday right after we started this blog has spread her poster-board wings and flapped her way out of the Treehouse (see #1).
5. I saw this going around on various social media sites and thought it would be fun to answer here. The last thing you bought on Amazon is your weapon in battle. How will you wield it? (if you're not an Amazon shopper, then the last thing you bought online anywhere)
A pair of summer pajamas, teal with a palm tree print.
Ways I could use them as a weapon:
a) Letting the enemies laugh themselves silly
b) Turn the pajama pants into a stone-flinging catapult
c) Soak pajamas in flowery detergent and give the enemy an allergy attack
6. Insert your own random thought here.
I think that's been random enough already.
