Tuesday 4: You

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, (❛‿❛✿̶̥̥)

  1. Good Morning my “name twin”. This was very delightful to find this morning. A lot of interesting information and a better insight into who you are. I hope when you do get out on the bike again that maybe you will find you way down south for a visit HERE. You and I agree on a lot of things, decor, etc., and especially SHOES. Skechers are my shoes…I even have a neat black leather pair that are perfect for church with a pair of black pants. Comfort is definitely the name of the game at this stage in life. Your PJ choice is cute, but I’m afraid it’d be too hot for me. I like a short cotton nightie that sometimes becomes a fan when I get too hot…just pull up the bottom “skirt area” and start fanning! LOL. I wonder if I will EVER get old enough to not have hot flashes! LOL. Have a blessed day.

    1. We might make it down that way some day. It would have to be during the cold months. 🙂
      BTW, I’ve got the perfect cure for the hot flashes: take one black cohosh once a day. I buy them through E-Bay, or they can sometimes be found in the local drug store. Boom. Flashes, etc. are gone. It’s a natural, mild, herbal estrogen. Let me know if you try it!
      God bless y’all. ❤

  2. Oh, I quite disagree; you are far from ‘typical, kinda ordinary, certainly no one special or intellectual’. You are the most warm, loving, special person I know. Smiles. And I love you to infinity and beyond, smiles.

    1. Thanks Anne. You’re certainly not ordinary either. I wish I had your talent for painting. I SO want to re-paint our old laundry cum pantry. It’s a small area but I have such a weak neck & right shoulder now. Might just paint the whole thing one color and leave it that.

    1. Good point! 😂 I did get the nickname from when I was a Volunteer Firefighter here in Pierce County but I think it might have had a double connotation. 😏😌
      Chin up Debby! It’s almost Fall with rain and cooler weather!
      Blessings. xx

    1. I’m always looking for something new to watch too that will entertain and, sometimes, educate. Most programs now seem to be lacking in that regard.
      God bless ya Terri. Keep looking up! Christ is returning soon.
      Love ❤

  4. We do feel the same about a lot of things, like you said. I guess I am glad I’ve gotten to meet my bio dad and get to know him, but now that he is feeling free to share philosophies and life advice with me…I am finding I’m very glad he did not raise me. I may have become someone the current me would hate and I see the baggage the kids he did have a hand in raising have, their dysfunction, and I’m glad I missed out on it.

    1. Yeah, I know what you mean. The birth-family wouldn’t have been much of an improvement with me either because I’ve watched them and they didn’t & don’t base their lives on Jesus Christ. We are lost without Him. Sometimes I feel a teensy bit “jealous” of those around me here in SE Georgia because most of them have Bible based relations. I keep telling them how lucky they are to not be lost in a sea of confusion when growing up. God bless ya Stacy. You’re a treasure. ❤
