Wednesday Hodgepodge


1. Have you ever been to the capital of the USA-Washington DC? If so what’s your favourite site? If not, what site would you most like to see on a visit to that city someday in the future? Is it even on your list of places to visit?
Yes, I’ve visited several times. My favorite site is the Vietnam Memorial Wall, since I have friends who are listed there. I also love the Jefferson Memorial and the National Zoo.

2. When did you last attend a wedding? Are there any weddings on your summer calendar? Were you a summer bride? If you’re single is summer the season of your dream wedding?
Three years ago I attended my nephew’s wedding. I have no summer weddings that I know of to attend this year. For my first marriage, I was a summer bride (June 5). Now that I’m single and have no prospects, a summer wedding is not planned.

3. What is your favourite way to eat strawberries?
Sliced with a tiny bit of sugar to make a syrup.

4. What is one thing you are especially looking forward to this summer?
The end of summer when my granddaughters return. I honestly have no plans for the summer, and my trip to the seacoast isn’t until October.

6. Share a favourite piece of common sense advice.
Do not pretend to a love which you do not actually feel, for love is not ours to command.

7. Barefoot, flip flops, tennis shoes, sassy sandal-your first choice for summertime?
Barefoot or flip flops if possible because of my bunions, but I have a great pair of sandals that don’t bother them and look fantastic.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I have another meeting with my CASA supervisor today and then visits to the children. I want to be a good advocate for them and see them in loving, functional homes,

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

    Great rambling hodgepodge- I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. This is about all I can add right now. I go to work to get away from home, and I go home to get away from work. Vacations are not an option.

    Would love a vacation in a warm place right now.
