Sunday Stealing: Around the House

Sunday Stealing: Around the House

Bedroom: what’s your sleep schedule?
A. 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
Kitchen: favorite comfort food?
A. Chocolate.
Washroom: showers or baths? bubbles? bath bombs?
A. Showers. What the heck is a bath bomb?
Closet: sum up your style in a few words.
A. Messy.
Parlor: favorite party or board game?
A. Monopoly.
Living room: what do you like to do with your family?
A. We watch a lot of TV. Well, generally he watches TV while I crochet or read or knit or something, Game of Thrones nights excepted.
Dining room: favorite special occasion food?
A. Chocolate Lush
Garden: favorite tree? flower?
A. Tree: maple. Flower: rose.
Attic: what’s one thing you have a sentimental attachment to and you will never throw away?
A. Santa Mouse, except he's not in the attic, he's stored in a secret place. In the attic, I suppose Grandma's quilting racks would be something we will never be rid of.
Library: favorite book genre?
A. Fantasy.
Office: if you could have any job in the world, what would it be?
A. Book Publisher (like owner of Random House or something big like that).
Guest room: have you been to a sleepover? if so, when was your first? do you like them?
A. I have been to sleepovers when I was young. We stayed at my grandmother's a lot, which I suppose one might call a sleepover. I liked those. I don't mind people over to my place, only I don't have a guest room. They'd have to sleep on the couch or the floor (or I would). I am not much on staying at other people's houses because of my many allergies.
Foyer: do you like small gatherings, large parties, or one-on-one meetings?
A. One-on-one meetings.
Pantry: favorite meal to make?
A. I really don't like to cook. I make good fudge at Christmas.
Laundry: favorite and least favorite chore?
A. I like doing laundry. My husband's very nasty clothes, covered with cow doodie and dirt, are not fun to wash, but in warm weather I take them outside and hose them down before I put them in the washing machine.
Garage: favorite mode of transportation? favorite car?
A. Car. I have a Camry, which I like, but I wouldn't mind having an Avalon.
Panic room: what was the most nerve-wracking experience you’ve had?
A. I'm generally a nervous person so it doesn't take much. However, the day my husband caught his arm in the hay baler was probably the worst panic I've ever had.
Powder room: do you wear makeup? if so, what one item can’t you live without? what’s your favorite look?
A. I do wear makeup. I still wear Covergirl. I use foundation, mascara, blush, and a powder coat, and eye color (taupe). I do not use lipstick because I've never found a brand that didn't make my lips swell up. Here's a picture of me taken last Sunday. I was thinking of replacing the photo currently on my blog with this one. What do you think?
Up-to-date picture (2017)
What I'm using now.
It is 5 years old.


  1. I almost said chocolate too. A bath bombs are hard-packed balls of dry ingredients that turn into bubbles when they get wet. They're full of essential oils and aromas. I've tried making fudge a few times with no success.

    Ha ha, we use the word doodie all the time!

  2. I so misread these things! Like"attic". We haven't got one.
    I like both photos of you for different reasons, but your lovely smiling one wins my ❤️
    Sleep overs are fun, but, like you, we have no guest room so they are out for anyone but family, who like to sleep in the rv.
    Have a calm, peaceful week! No trauma!

  3. I'm inherently nervous, as well. (No idea why!) Since I quit smoking, my nails have become realllly ugly.
    Your hubby didn't lose the arm, did he? Farm machinery can be killers.

    Have a great day!

  4. I thought my husband's work clothes were bad...caked with mud and often with pockets full of nails, screws, or the like, but "win" with cow doodie. Ugh. I would not want to deal with that in my front-load machine...maybe in one of the old type with an actual agitator.

    Did your husband get free of the baler without damaging his arm too badly? That would have scared the doodie out of me. I know a couple of people who've been caught in farm equipment. My aunt's third husband lost all of his fingers except his thumbs in something and a school friend had a huge scar on her arm where she got caught in a corn picker.

    Both pictures are very nice. I guess it depends on whether you want a formal or casual picture. The newer one seems a lot more formal to me.

  5. I think we're wearing the same glasses! :)

  6. Although the new picture is nice, I think the old one shows more of your warmth and personality. I love to cook but I don't have a favorite dish to fix. I have gotten to the point that I wear very little makeup. Mascara and eyeliner ( so you can see my eyes) and a little mineral powder to even out the skin is all. I actually hate the feel of liquid makeup. Whenever someone we love gets hurt, it is always a nerve-wreaking experience no matter how big or little the injury. I can only image your panic and fear when James had his accident but I'm glad everything turned out to be ok. I definitely am a one on one type and if I could have any job it would be... what I do now. I love my career. I met different people and help them to feel good about themselves. Help them to find jobs, listen to their problems, fall in love, and watch them and their families grow. It's a gift as much as it is a career.

  7. ** imagine your fear .... SORRY! My fingers are slower than by brain!

  8. I'm a bath person, but don't use those crazy bath bombs! That is a great, new picture.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
