Not My Signature Color Hodgepodge

Head over to Joyce's to add your post and see how everyone else answered this week's questions.

1. What's something that reminds you of your grandmother? Tell us why. 

Sadly, I didn't really know either of my grandmothers. I have something very special of my maternal grandma's. Every time I take it out I can feel her fingers on the beads and (even though I don't remember what she sounded like) I can imagine her praying along with me. I touch the worn beads and wonder just how many Rosaries she said using this one:
2. Is your life currently more 'moonlight and roses' or a little more 'every rose has it's thorn'? Elaborate. 

Well, it's summer so right now it's more moonlight and roses.

3. June 23rd is National Pink Day...favorite thing you own in any shade of pink? Favorite thing found in nature in any shade of pink? Your favorite pink food or beverage? Your favorite shade of pink? 

I have a couple of v-neck Lands End t-shirts that are pink. So soft & nice to wear.
Pink in nature: Azaleas. It's just too bad they don't bloom longer.
Pink food or beverage: Shrimp
Favorite shade of pink: I have no idea. Blush or bashful??? Pink is definitely not my signature color!
4. Last thing that had you 'tickled pink'? 

The view from one of our campsites last week:
5. What are two or three words that describe your style. 

I have no style. (oops...that was 4!)

6. Insert your own random thought here.  

CH & I had a wonderful, relaxing camping vacation last week...except for 1 night. We both slept better on our cots in the mountain air than we had in a long time. Look for a post very soon!
Campsite #1


  1. Steel Magnolias! I lived only an hour from Natchitoches, LA where this was filmed. Neither is pink my signature color, but no one could say "blush and bashful" quite like Julia Roberts. The scenery from your trip is amazing. The last time we tented was definitely the last time.

  2. Ah, I miss camping! Haven't camped for two years now (thanks, covid). Your view was marvelous.

  3. We haven't camped in ages but still have all our gear. Looking forward to taking the grandsons one of these days! Glad you had a wonderful restful trip. I think I'll need a cot going forward : )

  4. Loved that clip from Steel Magnolias. I gotta watch that again soon.

  5. I'm not convinced I have style either. I also don't care!

  6. Looks like a great camping trip! Can't wait to read about your adventure!

  7. I always forget that my comment goes away and I have to wait to type here!!!
    Lovely beads. Glad things are moonlight and roses. Love that from Steel Magnolias. Beautiful view and glad you had a nice trip. I could use a good night of sleep.

  8. Loved your answers. That is a gorgeous view. I'm glad you having something of your grandma's and that you can sense her in them. Beautiful.
