1. What is one really fast, know-by-heart "go-to" meal to fix in a pinch?

Rice-a-Roni Jambalaya (low salt), shrimp, red beans, cumin and cilantro, canned diced tomatoes w/ mild green chiles

2. What is one item you won't leave home without. (Purse and license do not count.)

Distance glasses and reading glasses…yes, I HAVE to have them.

3. Where is one place you never tire of visiting?

The seashore…under an umbrella with a good book, sunglasses and my camera and a tall, cold drink taking in the sound of the waves and gentle seabreezes

4. Share one factoid of your family's history.

My grandfather had many jobs throughout the years: farmer, mailman, and saw miller.

5. Complete this sentence: "Once upon a time I ...."

…was fainting many times in a day; so I got to go to St. Joseph’s hospital at the age of 3 to have an EEG. The nurses were nuns who wore habits; I had never seen a nun before that day. It probably helped keep me occupied watching them…they seemed to glide across the floor. Anyway, they determined I had EXTREMELY low blood pressure and did not have epilepsy. I outgrew as I got older, but then later found out I had a slight heart murmur.

6. If you could win a one year's supply of anything, what would it be?

Manuka Honey…a miraculous, God-given, honey able to right my wrong digestion issues, heal skin abrasions and sweeten my tea.

7. "One quirky thing you may not know about me is ...."

bizarre, off-the-wall, weirdhhhhmmmmm: I like to eat wasabi on my sandwiches

8. You have one dollar in your pocket. What will you buy?

Probably…something at the thrift store on a Monday…it’s half price day!

9. "One thing that always makes me laugh is ...."

…getting to be with our youth and enjoying their spontaneity, especially on long bus rides.

10. What is one thing you could do today to help yourself reach a personal goal?

Have my hair cut/highlighted before 100 or so people descend on our open house so the pictures won’t look like I just crawled out from under the refrigerator…which I probably just did do.

11. What is one thing you could do today to bless someone else?

Smile and mean it

12. What is one thing you're looking forward to soon?

My yard will be getting the ‘once over’ tomorrow…and it WON’T be me doing the work. Bushes trimmed, edging, lawn cut, trees trimmed, new pine straw…getting prettied up for graduation week

Kirsty said...

Your answer to #11 is wonderful :)Wasabi on sandwiches??? I am gonna have to trust you on this one, cause I can't even begin to imagine!

Critty said...

I am going to smile today and mean it. :o)

And manuka honey....I am going to have to find some! Sounds amazing.

Hope you get a chance to have your hair done!

Cathy said...

What is wasabi?

Jill said...

I loved your answer to #11. And #3 sounds great. I want to go there too.

Joyce said...

Where do you get the honey? Is it sold in health food stores or just local to where you are?

I love wasabi...sounds great to me.

Enjoy all your graduation festivities...hoping you get your hair'll be in lots of pics so go for it.

Mocha with Linda said...

Your answers are great! Your #10 cracked me up about crawling out from under the fridge!

Check your health food stores and natural co-ops for the manuka. It's not as cheap as local honey (and local honey usually isn't as cheap as the honey at walmart).

We have four-hour efficacy with a spoonful of manuka honey popped in the mouth of a kiddo with a coughing fit at our house. 90-minutes efficacy when it's croup. It's fascinating to observe a coughing fit cease mid-cough.

Happy Wednesday!

Wasabi and what? Just wasabi? Interesting...and I too am looking forward to the Yutes, as my youngest son called them when he was about 5...
