Answer Me This....

It is Sunday morning and Frank and I are lying in bed, drinking coffee and reading our electronic media.  He has his Ipad and I have my laptop.  I guess this is the modern day version of lounging in bed over the Sunday paper.

We went flying yesterday so we did not go to Mass but we can still lounge around because we are going to 11:30 Mass today.  We are going to leave earlier than that though because there is a tall ship docked in our little town and it opens at 10 AM for tours, so we will go there before Mass.

While I am lounging around though, I am going to take advantage of the opportunity to join Kendra over at Catholic All Day for Answer Me This.  Here is Kendra's description of this little game....."Greetings and salutations! And a very warm welcome to Answer Me This . . . the internet's favorite virtual cocktail party* in which I ask six totally random questions and we all answer them and get to know each other a little better.

Isn't that nice?

*this statement may not be true."

1. What do you still want to do this summer?  Oh we still have another 2 months of summer to enjoy here in Michigan.  I don't have any young children that have to be back to school so I can stretch out my summer for as long as the weather holds out.  As for what I want to do....We have some things planned....This weekend we are going to Trout Creek, Canada for a family reunion.  Next weekend we are going to Shanty Creek, MI for Frank's work conference after which we will be going to Traverse City to spend a couple of days with our kids there.  In September, we are having a grandbaby, depending on when she decides to make her entrance we are tentatively going to NYC for a few days where we will meet up with my brother and his wife who are coming in from CA and stopping there before going to DC for a few days and then landing here at our house for a couple of weeks...so I am in the midst of summertime!!

2.  What's your favorite kind of pie?  It' a tie....





3. How much sleep do you need each day?  I need 8 hrs and I get 8 hrs.  Sometimes I awaken in the middle of the night for no apparent reason and cannot go back to sleep for a couple of hours so then I need to take a nap during the day.


4. Do you prefer to swim in a pool, lake, river or ocean?  Let me just say....I love the water....I am not much of a swimmer but I love being in the water, regardless of what type.


On the river during our canoe trip.




Relaxing with friends in the pool.



5.  Do you know any poems by heart?  I know tons of songs by heart and they are really just poems set to music, right?

6.  Do you use the public library?  I used to spend hours at the library, it is like going to a free bookstore and browsing.  Then I got my nook...now I browse all my books on line and haven't been to the library in a long time.  But this question made me homesick for my little library in town so I think I may just stop in there this week!

  2. Wow, I'm wowed by how much you can accomplish before Mass (touring a ship, that's impressive!). I love your point about songs just being poems! Have a great Sunday!

    1. Well it's not hard when you have no children and you don't go to Mass until almost noon LOL. Thanks for stopping by Lisa.

  3. Songs are absolutely poems...and if my english teacher had taught us poetry with music - I would be able to recite the heck out of it! Guess what showed up on my Google feed right before your post - PUMPKIN PIE recipes! I think it's a sign that I should bake! Dutch Apple pie is my all time favorite (and Peanut Butter pie from the place north of Phoenix, but what are the chances that I'm going to get back there today???)

  4. My favorite pie is Cherry Pie! I am the same with the library...do you download books from the library on your Nook? I haven't tried this but Justin's lady-friend does it all the time. I don't read fast enough anymore for them to go away in 3 weeks. That is also why I am not so good with the Lend Me feature

    1. I like Cherry too, and Blueberry. I didn't think you could download library books on the nook. I know you can on the Kindle, I will have to check it out.

    2. You can. I think they call it side-loading. Ask at your library to see if they can help you

    3. Thanks Paula, I will do that
