30 December 2017
Welcome to Saturday: 9. What we've committed to our readers is that we will post 9 questions every Saturday. Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment. Because we don't have any rules, it is your choice. We hate rules. We love memes, however, and here is today's meme!
Saturday 9: It's Just Another
New Year's Eve (1977)
1) In this song, Barry Manilow declares New Year's Eve is "just another night." How do you feel about 12/31? Is it a special occasion or just another night?
Well, we do go to a party each year
which makes it different from "just another night," but it never seems a big
deal to me.
The year was really centered on my mother and
I'd like to do over the days when I got upset with her for things that were
not her fault (she didn't know it, though)
This year my 9 year old granddaughter decided
to start a book club with her mother, me, Jeri and Walt's sister.
We've had 3 meetings now and it's just a delight to watch how mature she is
about running the meetings. We are reading the Narnia books and have
just one more to go, then we start "The Hobbit."
The best tip I heard this year was learning that if you have champagne that has gone flat (whether a glass or a bottle), putting one raisin in it will restore the bubbles. I also just found this handy kitchen aid:
Reading. I even set aside a time each
morning to read, but looking at my list of books read, I read ~20 books
fewer than I did last year.
I created "Benny," the teddy bear who has adventures and then writes to my granddaughters about them.
7) As this year comes to a close, what are you most grateful for?
While I am not grateful for the
continuous eating away of my mother's brain that Alzheimers does, I am so
grateful that her physical health is perfect. She's 98 now and may
well make it to 100.
I don't remember the last time I was there,
but I am embarrassed to admit that I do eat there regularly, every couple of
months or so. My standard order is a cheeseburger and small fries,
with the bottled water I always have in the car to wash it down with.
That's an easy question -- I went to an
all-girls school !!!
