I think I’m setting a new personal best here – posting in response to Cee’s challenge on the very same day the challenge was issued! We got snow yesterday, so it’s a perfect day to stay inside where it’s dry and warm – except I will have to go do some snow shoveling. later.
How do you like your eggs? As usual, that depends. If I’m having eggs for breakfast, I usually go for over medium. Don’t like runny whites at all. If I’m putting eggs in my salad or just want an egg for a quick snack between meals, I want them hard-boiled. If I’m having eggs for dinner, I’ll usually fix them as a frittata or an omelet. Except tonight, when I plan to have some leftover hash browns, bacon, and eggs over medium.
Have you ever met anyone famous? Maybe. Casually. Quickly. Kind of. Like, getting an autograph after a concert by Sonny James (how many of you remember him?) 100 years ago. I saw Robert Redford in a restaurant in New York City once, from a distance. Does that count?
What was the first thing you bought with your own money? Oh, like I could remember that? That was so many years ago. Probably something frivolous like a kid would do, with babysitting money. When finally a sort-of adult just out of business school working in an insurance agency, I bought clothes for work. My mother had always made my clothes or I got my hand-me-downs from a cousin, so buying clothes was exciting. That didn’t last long, and I started making my own clothes. Until the price of fabrics got too high to make it worthwhile.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. I appreciated daily conversations via email or text messaging with both of my kids. I appreciated Shasta snuggling with me in bed. Yesterday while the snow fell and the wind blew I appreciated having a warm house to stay inside. Then I appreciated watching Shasta play in the snow when we went for a wee walk – like just down the driveway because, after all, I had to shovel the porch and one of the decks.
All of these were taken with my iPhone – I dropped my camera the other day and now it keeps giving me an error message when I try to turn it on. Thank goodness for new smart phones!
