Random Dozen - September 15, 2010

1. Do you do garage sales? If so, tell me about one great find. If not, tell me why not.
Yes, I love to garage sale. The best find I ever got was a mink coat. I got it and a bunch of other things for $10.00. Yes you read that right $10.00. I wore that coat for years. It was beautiful. The pelts were a little worn but still in really good condition.
2. Name the last thing you fixed.
I don't really fix anything. I don't know how. I mean I can't even pound in a nail so that it stays in the wall. My husband is the mender, I can't sew. I can't even sew on buttons that will stay put.
3. Name your A) Favorite item of makeup OR B) Favorite tool
Favorite make up item is mascara. I can't leave home without it in place. My favorite tool, since I don't fix things is my bronzing powder and puffy brush.
4. Which room in your home needs organizing more than any other?
My bedroom. It is the household catch all. I think I saw tax statements from 1986 the other day. Seriously, it is bad.
5. Which room could use re-decorating?
As bad as the bedroom is, I would have to say the kitchen needs redecorating the most. I have a 1970 avocado green stove. The floor is kind of avocado green with yellow and is peeling in most places. The cupboards are nasty fake wood brown, and the sinks are the same avocado green.
6. Share something unique about your town.
On September 1, 1894 a fire swept through the town. It burned 420 square miles. It is now referred to as "The Great Hinckley Fire." It is listed in Wiki-pedia if you are interested. There were some amazing survival skills demonstrated that day.
7. If you could send a one-sentence message to your great-grandchild, what would it be?
I love you even now, I wish you everything in life that is good, and chocolate makes everything all better.
8. Do you Facebook?
Yes, I do. I don't write a lot. I play a lot of games. I share with family and I talk (IM).
9. Describe your favorite shoes.
My first pair of Birkenstocks. I love them. I have several pairs but keep the old ones by the door for a quick slip on. I even have Birkenstock shoes. That way I can wear them all year long.
10. Do you listen to more talk radio or more music radio? What kind of station is it?
No talk radio for me. If I can't get the local country station then I listen to the oldies station from the city.
11. How far would you travel for a really good (favorite) meal?
Well, I am 22 miles from town so at least that far.
12. If you were totally honest with yourself (and us) what should you probably be doing right now instead of blogging?
This time of night is just for me. I can do whatever I want and I choose to blog. The day is for work and stuff, but not the nights.

  1. I enjoyed your answers..I have never worn Birkenstocks...aren't they expensive?...I'm all about comfort in footwear...the reason I go barefoot...I once had the Harvest Gold that was part of the same era as the Avocado...They don't make appliances like they used to so you might want to hang onto that one..
    Enjoy your day,
