I love reading Joyce's posts, but her A to Z Blogging Challenge Posts are killing me! She's been to places I've only dreamed of, and she has the most amazing pictures.
Here are the questions for this week:
1. What are your plans for Easter Day/weekend?
Saturday I need to put out my Easter decorations. I just couldn't put them out during Lent this year, in keeping with the solemn time that Lent should be. I'll keep them up for a while: In the Catholic Tradition, the Easter Season lasts until Pentecost, which is on June 12th this year. I don't think I'll keep my Easter flags and mailbox cover up quite that long!
2. Besides Jesus, what one person from The Bible would you most like to meet and why?
Mary. I didn't even have to think on that one. The Mother of Jesus, the one who said "yes" when God asked. How incredible it would be to talk to her and see what it was like to be the Mother of God. How deep her pain must have been.
3. What is one modern day convenience you didn't have as a child that was easy to live without?
Oh, that's easy! Cell phones! How in the world did we live without them?
4. Are you more right brained or left brained? If you don't know what that means there is an interesting little quiz here.
Oh, Joyce! Where do you get this stuff? The quiz said I was more left-brained, but I'm left-handed, so what does that mean? When I read the description, I thought "there is no way". It said I'm not verbal. HEEEEELLOOOO: I'm a speech pathologist. How can I not be verbal? When I read each category and the descriptions, I kept saying, "oh, definitely"! Interesting.
5. What is something you intended to do today but didn't? Why?
Call the heating/air guy....because I forgot. I asked CH a few weeks ago if we should check the air conditioner, but he said he thought it was going to be okay. We turned it on a couple of weeks ago, and it worked fine for a while, but then it quit blowing cold air. I need to call and get them to come out before it gets really hot again and they're covered up.
6. Cadbury Creme Eggs or Reeses peanut butter?
I have a friend whose husband is British. She swears by the real Cadbury Eggs, but she hasn't bothered to share! Give me Reeses...anytime!
7. Who was your favorite cartoon character when you were a child?
I don't think I had a favorite. I don't remembered what I just had to watch on Saturday mornings , aka "Cartoon Day". These poor kids today: they have cartoons anytime they want. They have nothing to look forward to during the week! When I was in high school, I would come home from school and my mom & I would watch "Tom & Jerry". I don't think that went on for very long, but it was a memorable time!
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Since Joyce asked about Easter candy, I have a question: Remember those cheap cream filled eggs that you used to be able to get in a pack of 6? I'm not talking about the Russell Stover eggs; I'm talking the cheapo eggs. Are they not making them anymore? I can't find them anywhere. I haven't looked at Big Lots yet. I LOVE those things! On second thought...maybe it's a good thing I haven't found them!
The Dove peanut butter and the Dove coconut eggs are wonderful. Has anyone else tried them?
