Here are the questions for this week!

 

1._____________________ is a waste of time.

2. My favorite app is ____________________.

3. My first car was ___________________.

4. The best car I ever owned was ____________________, because ____________.

***

Here are my answers!

  1. I know we call a lot of things we do a waste of time, but I really don’t think that’s the case. The first thing I thought of was that worrying is a waste of time. Many times it is, but sometimes as we mull over a situation, we come up with a solution to a problem, however small, even if just to ease your mind about it. Staring into space, thinking of random things, isn’t a waste of time. It’s using our creative brain and imagination. Hobbies aren’t a waste of time, as we are enjoying the process. So, it may look like we are wasting time, but we aren’t.
  2. My favorite app is…I’m not sure I really know what apps are. Are they the games you play on your phone? I don’t play games on my phone, but I do on the computer. I use my phone for the camera, and texting mostly. Are those called apps?
  3. My first car was a Ford Falcon, and it was a dull burgundy color. It had standard shift on the steering column.I don’t remember what year model it was, probably a 60 something or other. I put big yellow flower power stickers on it, trying to make it look cool. It did look cool, but didn’t fool anyone into thinking I had a better kind of car.
  4. The best car I ever owned was a blue Mustang, I think was a 64 or 65 one. It was blue. The next favorite was a 69 Camaro, and it was dark burgundy in color, with a black top. I had it quite a long time, and since I bought it myself, it was special.

FRIENDLY FILL – INS

Here are the fill-ins:

  1. I have googled _________________________.
  2. I have__________________________ on Ebay.
  3. I think ________________________________.
  4. ______________ thinks __________________.

***

  1.  I have googled all kinds of things. Mostly I look up things to find out more information about a subject. Sometimes my first query doesn’t supply a good answer, so I re-phrase my question another way. Usually that works. One fun thing I like to google is the google street maps. It’s fun to have a look around at all kinds of places. Sometimes I google my own home address, except I try to find the same in another city or country. It’s so interesting to see the places you share an address with. Some I’ve seen for mine are beautiful neighborhoods, business areas, empty lots, and regular homes here and there. You should try it! … I’ve also googled myself and people I know. 🙂
  2. I have never thought much about Ebay. I don’t think I’ve ever even seen or looked up anything on there. I don’t want to buy anything from there, as I don’t even buy things from the internet, either.
  3. I think I fall down the rabbit hole when I google things. One thing leads to another thing to look up, and it takes me other places. Eventually I’ll get back to my original thought, but sometimes it takes a long time.
  4. We don’t really know what anyone else thinks, because we are not in their head. They could be saying one thing, but thinking something entirely different. I think it would be fun to have those thought bubbles above people’s heads, so we could see what they’re really thinking. haha! 🙂

Here are the fill-ins:

1. An Easter (or Passover) tradition I have is ______________.

When we were kids, we always had a new outfit to wear to church. Sometimes we even got a little hat. We’d get together with family for lunch, and then with our cousins, we’d have the Easter Egg Hunt out in the yard.

 

2. My favorite flavor of ice cream is _____________.

My favorite ice cream flavor is plain vanilla, or sweet cream. I like other kinds, too. I really like frozen yogurt a lot, especially banana flavor, or just the original sweet/tart one. I like toppings on the Fro-yo, but not on ice cream.

 

3. One of my favorite Easter/Passover memories is _____________________.

Not my favorite memory, but it’s funny now, was when I was a kid. Well, an older kid. We had the usual egg hunt with the cousins, but it was decided the ‘younger’ kids would get to go hunt ahead of the ‘older’ kids. I threw a fit, as I thought it was so unfair, that the little kids would get all the eggs. I was crying, all red faced, and ugly, and wouldn’t you know it…my dad was taking home movies of the day. Yep, that occasion is forever captured on home movie film to this day…me still blubbering, and in my cute Easter outfit, as we ‘older’ kids were finally let out to find the eggs. haha!

 

4. My favorite Spring flower is _____________________.

My favorite flower of spring is the Iris.

Here are the fill-ins:

1. I hope _______________________________ gets renewed for another season.

I hope the reality show, “Big Brother”, gets renewed. I’ve watched every episode from the beginning, and it’s basically the only regular show I watch.
2. My first crush was ________________________________.

Orange…as in the soft drink, Orange Crush. I used to love these, up until I drank one on a very hot summer day. I must have drank it too fast, though, because I got sick after I had it!
3. ___________________usually makes me _______________.

My grand-kids usually make me laugh. They are so cute and sometimes the things they think about and say, are the funniest things to hear.
4. If I were a super-hero, I would be ________________.

If I were a super-hero, I would guess I’d be a guy? Since I’m not a guy, I suppose I’d be a super-heroine? Anyway, I doubt I’d be a super anything like that. But just for fun, maybe a Ninja Turtle. I like turtles, they are pretty cool. We used to have a turtle,too, named Herbie.  He was really cool. Could be he became a Ninja Turtle one day, and took off with his friends. We lost him, or he ran (do turtles run?) away. We never saw him after that.

Thanks, Suzanne! 🙂

Here are the fill-ins:

1. My favorite herb or spice is  ______________________.

I’d say my favorite herb would be cilantro. I like it on lots of foods, such as guacamole, eggs, meats, vegetables. It’s pretty versatile. I love the smell of it, and my knick-name for it it is ‘oxygen’, because when I smell it, I have to inhale it over and over, it’s so good.

2. An herb or spice I dislike is _____________________.

I can’t think of any that I dislike, at least of the ones I’ve tried.

3. Lately, I have been working on ____________________.

I’ve been working on jigsaw puzzles. I used to do them quite often, but hadn’t in awhile. I received two for Christmas, though, and am enjoying doing these puzzles again. Yesterday I even got a few more at some yard sales we went to.

4. This Winter was ___________________________________.

This winter was very mild compared to 2015, when we had a blizzard. This past few months we’ve seen a light snowfall maybe once? It gets down to freezing many times, but doesn’t last long. I don’t like cold weather at all, so I was happy.
