I KNOW I haven’t done 50 of these, but here’s just a few more things you just NEED to know about me.

Do you have a signature dish? If not is their one in your family?

I am not the cook of the house.  I have no signature dish.  I don’t even have a consistent signature.  (Does anyone?) Jeff is the cook/baker.  I’d say his signature dish is his potatoes au gratin.  Just what these hips need.  Right?

Do you have a favorite board game?



Is there a household chore that you enjoy?

Chore and Enjoy don’t go together in a sentence.  So no!

 What is one thing you will never care about?

I don’t really know.  I’m a worrier and slightly (ahem) insecure, so I care about EVERYTHING!  (I really tried to think of something, but everything I thought of just made me say, “No, I care about that.” and  “Nope.  I really do care about that.” So If I think of anything, I’ll let you know.  If YOU care about that.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?  236

I’m grateful that our dog, Rocky, is doing better after his operation.  In the week to come I’m looking forward to more good news about his biopsy.  (Don’t worry.  He’s a trooper.)

Come play along with Cee here.  Share YOUR world…

  1. For some people caring comes easy. Not for everybody. I will never care about perfection. I am at a point in life when good enough is good enough. Home decor – good enough. Cleaning – good enough. Glance in the mirror – yup – good enough. Voltaire said, “Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.” I’m on board with that…

  2. Can’t cook, won’t cook- that’s me! Except, somebody has to or we’d starve 😦 Signature dish???? Does cheese on toast count? 🙂
    Very best wishes and hugs for 2015, Gem!

  3. Potatoes au gratin!.. sounds good right now!!! Not one household chore I enjoy. My signature dish.. potato salad. CH and I play Scrabble! I care very little about politics.. one less thing I need to worry about 😉

  4. I hope Rocky all be OK. Potatoes au gratin sounds real good right now. Something warm. Guess my peanut butter and honey sandwich isn’t giving me the sense of warm your hubby’s Potatoes au gratin are giving me. Great answers.

  5. So sorry about Rocky, good thoughts and prayers for your four-legged family member. Love to cook, so no insecurity there, and I really don’t care if my house needs swept or dusted 🙂 Love scrabble and I’m grateful for everything , every day. Hugs, We wish you the very best for 2015

  6. Irish roots mean potatoes are a hit in any form with me Gemma . Potatoes au gratin a real comfort dish 🙂
    Good to hear Rocky is doing well (sorry I must have missed something too ) extra hugs all round !

  7. Oh dear, this particular inquisition is going to something of a negative affair – which is not good for New Year! Answer to the first three questions = no! Don’t play any board games, maybe I’ll keep them for my dotage (which starts tomorrow ..)! Very laid back about chores, which means I do very few >>> which gets me into things I never care about which, particularly now that I’m retired, constitute an ever growing list – I always remember that quote from The Straight Story, Alvin saying that he’d seen a lot of Life, such that he’s learned to keep the grain but let the chaff fall away – I’m letting increasing amounts of the chaff go. A good thing from last week, or recently at least – we are at last free of workmen on the house. But what I’m looking forward to this coming week is easy – I very much hope that Rocky recovers and gets the all clear. Happy New Year! A

    • Thanks, Adrian. For playing along and for the good doggie wishes. If chaff means my hips would fall away, I’m all for relinquishing the chaff, but alas, I’m thinking it ain’t so. 😉 Happy New Year, bud. ❤️ I hope E’s doing better. My best to her for the new year as well, of course. ❤️❤️

  8. Hope all’s as well in your world as it can be, Gem, and that you’ve been able to spend a little bit of time and contentment with Jeff these hols. January hugs! 🙂

  9. So how is Rocky ???? Give him a hug from me. Signature dishes hey ??? The Son loves my potato salad…which is so heavy on the mayonnaise it has to be unhealthy. He is also partial to my bruschetta. At the moment though I seem to be making a chocolate mousse dish for everyone…made with avocado. People are getting a bit strange about it really. But it is rather scrummy.

    • Rocky is doing better, Jo. Thanks. It’s going to be touching go I guess for a while but he’s home with us and that’s good. I am not a fan of mousse but avocado is one of my new favorite foods. Bruschetta and potato salad, look out! Love them! It is so good to hear from you I hope you’re well. Have a great new year, Jo. ❤️

    • Yes Patti. I am very fortunate. Rocky is doing okay. Unfortunately the diagnosis was not a good one but we had some work done on him and we will just love him for a while longer. Thank you for your visit. And thank you for asking.😍
