Five Question Friday–Two Days Late

1. What is one grammar issue you cannot let go without correction?

I have a bunch that I hate: missplaced apostrophes; missued their, there, and they’re; those are my most hated, I guess. I also hate the it’s and its but I don’t see them that much.

2. What’s your favorite thing about fall?

My favorite thing is cooler weather. By that I mean it’s not 100 degrees F anymore, more like 80s and low 90s which I can stand. It’s nicer in November when it gets down to the 50s in the morning and I actually have to wear a jacket when I take the dogs out. The rain we get during the fall is nice, too. We really need rain and fall is our rainy season. Football is a good reason to like fall too.

3. What’s your favourite dish to take to a potluck?

Deviled eggs. I make good deviled eggs and they’re easy to make and they are one of my favorite foods.

4. When do you start Christmas (Holiday) shopping?

I started already, or at least started thinking about it. I know what I want to buy for my daughter–just haven’t ordered it yet. The granddaughters are a little more difficult; their birthday is in the beginning of December and I have gotten their birthday gifts. Now I have to work on their Christmas gifts. I already know what I’m getting my sister and brother and son-in-law.

5. Did you move homes a lot growing up?

No, I only moved once between the time I was born and through university. My parents stayed in that home all their lives. My father built the house when I was 18 months old and the house was not sold until years after my mother’s death.

Thanks to The Red Neck Princess for doing the Five Question Friday this week.

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.
