Stolen from Kwizgiver
1. What has been your favorite part of the year so far.
Well, there's not a lot to think about "favorites" in 2020, but I do love that I
have been playing on-line Scrabble with the granddaughters and Jeri. I
also love listening to
Ned's radio show
2. Have you started Christmas shopping?
I shop for Christmas all year long. I start shopping the day after
Christmas and keep things hidden away until December. Of course, I have
very few people that I shop for, so it's pretty easy.
3. Do you like your handwriting?
No. I used to. It used to be pretty neat and clear, but now even I
can't read things I have written. It's why I never take notes when I
review a show--I can't read them after we get home.
4. Song you could hear over and over and over again.
There are several, a few John Denver songs, and a few from Broadway musicals,
5. A favorite quote.
I have a few, but this is a nice one: "Memories
are the treasures that we keep locked deep within the storehouse of our souls,
to keep our hearts warm when we are lonely." ~Becky
6. Last dream you remember.
I started dreaming again this year and have very complicated dreams, but can't
remember any of them now.
7. Most expensive object you want to buy right now.
I can't think of anything I want to buy
8. Describe your eldest family member.
That would be my mother, who turned 101 this year. I have not seen her
since COVID entered our world, which would be 8 months. I missed her 101st
birthday but they do send me photos occasionally, which is nice. Sadly,
she doesn't want to talk on the phone to me.
9. What has your weather been like?
We may finally be looking at autumn. The weather this week is in the
middle 70s, it was high 60s last week.
10. Do you enjoy your job?
Retirement? Sure! My favorite job. Salary sucks, but that's
OK, the environment is great.
11. What is your favorite everyday item?
A toss-up between the TV and the computer.
12. Are you currently obsessed with any TV show?
Since Season 5 of Outlander ended, I don't know if I'm obsessed
with any TV show, though I watch lots of them regularly. This is Us
just began and I assume I will be waiting eagerly each week.
13. Book you’d like to read before the year ends.
I'd like to finish the half dozen books on my Kindle that I set aside to start
another book on my Kindle! I also have a "real" book by Sandi Toksvig that
I want to read too.
14. Describe Kindness.
Treating people with compassion and respect. Benevolence, sympathy,
15. Describe your favorite candy in great detail.
To buy over the counter, Snickers has been my favorite for a long while, but
lately it seems too sweet. My favorite is really See's "California
Brittle," which is a square of brittle covered with milk chocolate. You
can buy 10 of them in a package when/if the store is open.
