A Simple Hodgepodge

Joyce asks the questions, and we provide the answers. See how others answered at From This Side of the Pond.

1. June 12 is National Simplicity Day. In what way is your life simple? What's one way that it's not? 

I've cut out so much of the "noise" that I used to have, mainly social media. I'll get on from time to time but nothing like I used to. I'm content to sit on my back porch and read or play some word games on my tablet. 

Having to take care of all of the household things by myself (although the boys are being a big help when I ask them) is definitely not making my life simple. But I'm learning and getting through it.

2. Something you remember from a 'simpler time'? 

Oh, so many things! Playing outside, spending time at the swimming pool, riding my bike come to mind immediately. Also, listening to the radio for hours just to hear that 1 song.

3. Do you like squash? If so what's your favorite variety? What's a favorite way to prepare squash? 

Squash is one of those few vegetables that I'll eat cooked; either yellow or zucchini. I'll also eat them raw. I don't have a preference as to how they're prepared and I don't make it that often. It's usually incorporated into a recipe.

4. Do you shop the warehouse stores (such as Costco, Sam's B.J's, etc)? If so how often do you go, and what's something you always buy in this type of store? 

I don't. When the boys were little we would go to Sams and get things in bulk, but now that it's just me (for the most part), I don't think there's any need to go. Plus, there isn't one of any of those stores in my county although we are getting a BJ's. 

5. Father's Day is this coming Sunday. Any plans to make the day special? Tell us something about your own father, or something about your hubs as a father, or about someone who stepped into your life and acted as a father if yours was not a part of your life. 

No plans at all since my father passed away several years ago and CH passed away in November. 

My dad wasn't big on words but when he talked, we listened. I wasn't close to him growing up but after my mother passed away I quickly became a Daddy's girl. I value all of the advice he ever gave me and I miss his very awkward hugs.

6. Insert your own random thought here.

I've been able to get quite a bit of stuff done around the house over the past few days. Mainly, cleaning. Now I can relax a little bit and get back into a routine for a while...at least until the end of July.

  1. I didn't see your link but you popped up on my sidebar. I am with you on Internet noise. I spend very little time there other than linking my blog. Listening to the radio to hear that song! Yes! Kids have no idea what we went through to hear our music lol. Hope there is some joy in your weekend. I know all these firsts are extra hard.
