Important Notice!!! We are currently dealing with a serious health crisis involving David. Computer time and blogging will be taking a backseat until we can get this situation under control and, hopefully, save his leg. Please bear with us as we go through this difficult time. Thank you for any prayers that you can offer up.

Also, if you'd love to help cheer him up, please subscribe to his YouTube channel. That would really make his day! The link is at the bottom of all of my posts.

Thank you and Merry Christmas to all of you!

QUESTIONS

Sleepy image @ wpclipart.com
What's the one thing you feel is the biggest waste of your time during an average week?

Trying to sleep is almost always a big waste of time for me. I'll get almost asleep and hear a noise and wake up. It is just easier to stay awake and let sleep sneak up on me and knock me out in my chair rather than going to bed planning to sleep and get woke up every time I'm almost there.






When was the last time you baked a pie?

I don't think that I've baked a pie since my late father-in-law was alive. He died in 1987. The pie that stands out the most to me was when I baked him a pecan pie. I forgot that it was in the oven so it cooked for about an hour longer than it was supposed to. :)

What do you want to spend time doing that you aren't right now?

I would love to be able to go to the cemeteries back home now that I know about more folks up my family tree!

What do you do with old clothes?

Old clothes here generally get thrown away because we wear them until they are practically falling apart.


If we were having lunch on the porch today, what would you bring for the potluck styled lunch?

I would bring salad with lots of red onion, garlic, walnuts, and golden raisins.

  1. I love pecan pie however I have never made one. My pie baking days are less frequent since the kids left home. Pies are baked for special occasions only!

    1. What is your favorite pie to eat or make? I like lots of different kinds (pecan, apple, cherry), but I just don't make pies anymore.

  3. I always like making a pecan pie for the holidays. That's a tricky kind of pie to make, too. You leave it too long and it's hard, too short and it's gooey.

    1. Yes, staying in too long definitely gives them brick status, just like the royal icing did to a cake that I made once. We couldn't even cut the thing. haha

    1. Yep. It went from being a pie to being a brick. :)

  5. Hah! I love the pie being in the oven for an extra hour! I am so easily distracted and if I didn't have a loud timer going off, I'd have many burnt offerings instead of edible pies!

    1. Knowing me, I forgot to set the timer to start with. :) I had a very active baby boy at the time...I'm really surprised that I didn't burn the house down at some point because of not being able to get back to the stove to keep an eye on things. That boy was all over the place!

    1. Have you ever made a Mississippi Mud Pie? My grandpa wanted one, but I never got around to making one for him. I had no clue what it was and this was before the internet was invented, so it took a little more work to get info since it wasn't in any of my baking books. I still have never made one.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a great week!

  7. I bought a wind up timer that helps me not to forget as long as I don't forget to set it.

    1. You sound like me, because I would likely forget to set the timer, too!

    1. Yes, I'm sure that we all have. It is getting worse for me lately. I've let water boil out of so many things over the last week, it's ridiculous!

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I hope that you're feeling much better and that you have a great week!
