1. Have you done more binge-watching this past year than in 'normal' years? Any plans to break that habit in 2021? Tell us one or two shows you binged last year that you really liked.
I watch very little tv any more. I am a bit hooked on International House Hunters, but I don't binge-watch it.
2. January 26th is Australia Day. Have you ever visited or lived in Australia? Have you ever tasted Vegemite, and if so what did you think? Is a trip down under on your bucket list? We answered a question about travel three months ago (the October 21st Hodgepodge), but let's revisit now...where are you when it comes to planning or even imagining travel this year?
I've never been and it's not on my top places to go. CH & I are hoping to do a big trip this summer. I'll have been vaccinated by then but I'm not sure about CH. He's doing the planning. I'm not telling where we're hoping to go, but guesses are welcome! We will take a vehicle and we plan on being gone about 3 weeks. Any guesses?
3. Something that zaps your energy? Something that energizes you?
I'm going with cold rainy days. Those are the days I'd love to just stay in bed under the covers! Or people who just have to have drama.
Being around people who share my faith energizes me. It might sound cliche, but there you have it!
4. On a scale of 1-10 what are your eating habits like these days? (1=all junk food all the time and 10= juicing every green thing in the frig) Healthiest meal you've eaten in the last week or so?
Juicing??? EEEEWWWWW. Right now my eating habits are a 9. If Joyce hadn't mentioned the whole juicing thing it would've been a 10! I mentioned in this post that I've had to have a major diet change. So this was a good time to have that question asked!
I fixed chicken breasts in the air fryer and ate mine on a bed of salad Monday night. CH had mac & cheese...I skipped that and went healthy.
5. What's your most often 'Back in my day....' thing to say?
That's not typically something I say so I'm drawing a blank on this one. I did think the other day about how most everything used to be closed on Sundays. I remember my daddy taking it easy on that day. After Mass, he'd sit in his chair with the big ol' Sunday paper. Sometimes he'd turn on the record player, but sometimes he just read without any background noise (except for us kids). Now people use it for a "catch up" day.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Last Sunday, OS & his girlfriend came over for brunch. They live about 15 minutes away from us so we see them every now and then. Since there were 6 of us (CH & I, OS & R, YS & N-his girlfriend) we ate at the bigger table in the dining room. We had a good time but missed MS being there. OS called later & thanked me for brunch; we need to do it more often for sure. I made the individual crustless quiche that I made for Christmas brunch, but I made them in the oven. They turned out pretty well.
Just in case you missed it:
I posted another installment of our trip to the Canadian Maritimes on Monday. We saw so much that writing a post takes quite a bit of time!
