Random Dozen

1. So I was thinking about how Jon Bon Jovi never seems to age much. His hair is smaller nowadays, but he still manages to look like a boy somehow. And then that made me think of the story of Dorian Gray. Question: If you physically lock in one age for yourself, which would you choose and why? 
24 , I was at a wonderful weight.  And grey hair hadn't started showing up yet. 

2. What is the best dish that you cook or bake (your piece de resistance?)  That's a hard one because I love to bake from scratch.   But my favorite would be cake for someone's birthday.  Because it's whatever kind they have requested so I know it's going to make them happy.

3. When you feel blue, what is one strategy you use to help yourself back to normal?  CHOCOLATE,  good worship music

4. When was the last time you danced in public?  LOL  Years ago, at least twenty.

5. Do you consider yourself a realist or dreamer?  Definetly a dreamer. 

6. As a parent, what is one thing that you have done well?    Always been there for them.  There's not much that I can think of that any of them couldn't come to me and talk to me about. 

7. Which is your favorite character on the Andy Griffith show?  Aunt Bea, because she's always in the kitchen.

8. On a scale of 1-10, how much do you know about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.?  2  Probably not very much.

9. Have you never been mellow? Have you never tried … to find a comfort from in side you? (Sorry, Jorge was singing that song just now, and it just seemed to be perfect timing as I was creating this week’s questions.) REAL question: What is your #1 driving pet peeve?
Just one.  LOL  I guess the worse one is when you want to pass someone and both lanes are going the same speed.  If you get in the fast lane then pass whoever is in the slow lane, don't drive right beside them.

10. Which color best represents your mood today? Care to elaborate?  Blue,  I have been in a slump since the New Year and can't seem to get myself out of it.  No motivation to do anything other than the bare essentials.  Memes, and review/giveaway blogs, can't seem to blog about anything I have to think of myself.
11. If your spouse were an animal, which would he/she be?  Depends on which day of the week it is.  I will say a bear because if he could he would hibernate for the winter.

12. What activity takes up the bulk of your time on an average day?  laundry, doesn't seem like I will ever get caught up.


  1. I can relate about the driving. I hate it when cars seem to herd together and it's hard to break out of the pack.

    This was interesting to learn about you.


  2. Oh I get crazy with the side by side drivers too!

    We were all thinner and less gray in our's a recurring theme as I read around today. There is some comfort in knowing we're all a little more gray and just a little more in general in mid life!

    Hoping your slump disappears soon.

  3. Ahhhh another criminal confession. Speeding is against the law. Citizens arrest citizens arrest. Do you remember that one from Andy Griffith? Gomer said that. LOL

    I do get over but it makes me angry that people who speed get angry at people going the speed limit in the left lane. What right do they have. Sorry I will get off my soapbox now. :)

  4. Thank you for sharing. Hopefully I will do this next week. I had to post my sons birthday today.

  5. Great answers. I wish I had thought of your answer for the parent question. I've done my best to do that as well, and I'm really proud of that.

    I think I'm glad I didn't know then that I would peak physically so young. :)

  6. Great answers, I wish there was a laundry fairy that would visit me daily. Wouldn't that be heaven.

  7. I think I am in the same blog slump too...only doing the basics, just can't get myself to post good ones again!

  8. #10 & #12 -- me, too. I think I am on stress overload. I just want to go to sleep and wake up when my new house is in order and all is well.

  9. Great answers! I'd like to be a bear and hibernate in the winter, also. Except today it was 75 here so I would wake up for that!

    And kudos to you - another "bake from scratch" gal!

  10. Great answers! I want to hibernate too.

  11. What a fun questionaire! I would have to say Otis was my favorite on AG...

  12. Hi Thena!
    I am not too far from you. I live in Screven, near Jesup. Dont we live in the prettiest area! I love this farm country here. Thanks for stopping by.
