back again to share…

Q #1 If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? (Guests can be dead, alive, famous, or someone you just know)

Abe Lincoln, George Harrison,  Anne Frank


Q #2   What can you always be found with?

My glasses, my iPhone, my sense of humor

Q #3   What is the most fun thing you did in school?

Strange, but true.  I remember very little from school. Nothing fun. Frustrating, really.  (Sometimes I think I should seek professional help on this one)



Q #4  What’s something you know you do differently than most people.

Speak Italian to my mom.  I’m sure there are a lot of people who do, but not most people. :-)

Bonus questions: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I am SO grateful for a day at our beach house last week.  It was the first of the summer.  Family matters have taken precedence.  It was wonderful, relaxing, and RELAXING!

I am looking forward to my sister visiting next week.  She’s coming up from Florida to help take care of our mom, and I am looking forward to AND grateful for the help.

There’s this tissue box on my wine rack that has been there since Christmas.  Yes.  You heard me right.  Christmas!   I guess no one remembers it’s there because I’ve replaced all the other tissue boxes a dozen times since then – we have some runny noses around here.

This morning I was looking for a little inspiration.  Something that would tell me all’s right with my world.  There is so much craziness going on in the news, in my life, in general – that, being the odd ball person that I am, I thought this might be a lucky sign.

Do you see it?

I know these are not prize winning photos, but they are my inspiration for today.

Do you feel it?  I do.

A rainbow followed me into the house today.  Now THAT’S a stroke of luck!

The top of a gazebo? A giant birdcage?  A incredibly large lawn ornament? An alien spaceship’s skeletal remains?

I don’t know what this old relic is.  You tell me?
