It’s time again for Tuesday 4 in memory of Toni Taddeo, our founder.
Let’s talk about you this week.
1. How are you unique or different from your friends or family? How typical are you? I think I’m typical, kinda ordinary, certainly no one special or intellectual. I do know a lot of useless stuff that adds up to a lot. At least I’m absolutely nothing like my adopted family, thank God. My half-sister, who actually knew our real mother (who was deceased when I “found” them in 1983, so, I’ve never met her), says that I am a great deal like her. Not quite sure if that’s a good or bad thing … ¯_( ͡❛ ͜ʖ ͡❛)_/¯
2. How do you spend your spare time? Books, hobbies, visiting, tv etc. Lately, it’s mostly Genealogy research on the computer, writing for the blog or correspondence, streaming film noir or British shows from YouTube, cleaning the house, organizing, and so forth. It’s too hot and humid to do much outside after about 10 am. That will soon change as the sun continues to make it’s trek to the Southern horizon. I want to go motorbiking again. I’m itchin’ to get some Delta Breeze On My Knees. (>‿◠)✌
3. What was high school like for you? Painfully tedious but doable. Nothing really memorable happened. I was mostly a “B” student which means I could have done better if I’d tried. 😜 My only pronounced memory was to do well enough to never have to live at home again. In my teen years I recall being anxious to make my own way in the world. No going back to live at home because I was a failure, thank you very much! Not that they would allow that. (They wouldn’t.) Somehow I muddled my way through the quagmire of acne, braces, ballooning weight, female issues and other growing pains. After graduation, and 4 years of a huge marital mistake, my loving Lord God gave me the best husband a girl could ask for 👰 💘 and my heart, my life began to heal. I give God the glory forever and ever for that extra kindness. Jesus sure heals broken 💔 hearts which makes life so much better. So, actually, I try not to recall too many personal memories from those days. Life is very good now, that’s what matters. Amen!? 😀
4. This question has multiple parts:
a. Handbag: designer style or any will do? Any ‘ol bag will do as long as it can fit into the motorcycle “frunk” (Honda NC’s have frunks not trunks). Besides, I’m too fickle to keep one purse for very long. I’ll buy another cheap one when I get bored then toss the old one. My favorite handbag at the moment is made from stitched denim and has “Sparky” embroidered on the front, a gift from dear friends at our former Church. I’ll probably keep that one always.
b. Pajamas or night gown? Pajamas, leggings with a nice long top and light weight jacket, actually. [see image] I bought this set from JC Penney called Ambrielle Womens Pajama + Robe Set 3-pc. Sleeveless Top and Cardigan. For me, it’s perfect! It’s affordable, modest and very comfortable. I like the set so much I bought another pair, and matching pairs of skid proof socks, for my Mother-In-Law in the Nursing Home. She was very pleased with the gifts.
c. Shoes: sturdy or pretty? I try to combine comfort and style, even to Church. Definitely no heels. That’s simply too painful to not be comfortable now. Too many other things hurt already. Aleve is definitely my best friend. Skechers are my Go To brand at the moment.
d. Home decor: classic, modern, farm house style, traditional? I guess I would call it Thrift Store Chic. Mostly Traditional with a splattering of Farm House, Country and lots of homemade. My husband makes the best wood furniture for a fraction of the cost. I always feel ripped off when I buy furniture but that’s probably because I had a temporary work assignment with an office furniture company once in Jacksonville when the world was young. Y’all would be shocked at how much a mark up there is on furniture! Wow.
e. Movies: feel good, drama, romance, action? Mostly drama or comedy, as long as it’s British or Australian or even Oriental. Right now we’re watching a lot of movies made by the Brit’s on India: The Jewel In The Crown, Indian Summers, A Passage to India, The Story Of India, etc. For anyone that likes films from Oz, Danny Deckchair is adorable. And so is Red Dog. Both are wonderful films and both are on YouTube for free. Red Dog is guaranteed to win many hearts. It’s my favorite.
Thank you Anne for keeping the weekly quizzes going. And thank you dear reader for playing along. I’m going to have more coffee and go read everyone else’s answers.
Ride Safe, (❛‿❛✿̶̥̥)
