Joyce has come up with some thought-provoking questions this week (as always), so put your thinking cap on and get started!
1. What have you 'fallen for' recently?
This isn't a new thing, but anything pumpkin. I had my first pumpkin spice latte of the season last weekend...I asked for 1 less pump of pumpkin, and it was perfect.
2. What's something you're 'squirreling away' for later?
If "squirreling away" can also mean procrastinating, then I'd have to say cleaning the house.
3. How do you like your apples? Sweet? Tart? Crisp? Cooked? Apples are one of the superfoods for fall...how often do you eat an apple either plain or as part of a favorite recipe? What's your favorite variety?
Sweet. I usually eat an apple by itself, but I'm definitely okay with eating them within a recipe. Like my MIL's Apple Pound Cake or an apple crisp.
I'm very fortunate to be able to call the Great Smoky Mountains "home". Going into New England during the fall is definitely on my bucket list, so I'd say The Berkshires & Green Mountain Byway.
5. The topic of legalizing marijuana was raised in the most recent televised political debate so let's wade in too. Twenty-three states and the District of Columbia currently have laws legalizing marijuana in some form. Four states have legalize marijuana for recreational use. Your thoughts?
Honestly, I could pretty much care less. I'm not going to use it either way. I could definitely see the medicinal purposes, but not really for recreational use. But, like I said, I don't really care 1 way or the other.
6. Are you okay to watch a movie already in progress or do you need to always see it from the beginning? How about jumping into a TV series somewhere in the middle? Is that okay?
Oh, no! I definitely have to watch a movie and series from the beginning!
7. Thursday (September 24) is National Punctuation Day. What rule of punctuation trips you up most often? What rule of punctuation, when broken by someone else, bugs you the most?
When to use a semi-colon & colon. I also really have to think when I write "it's" vs. "its". I can pretty much overlook punctuation; it's the whole using 'loose' for 'lose' or there for 'their' that gets me!
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I finished this season of Longmire last weekend. I even watched a few episodes twice. Now I can't believe I have to wait another year for the cliffhangers to get resolved!!!
