Do you enjoy crossword puzzles, word finds, or any "word" activities?

YES!!! I have enjoyed doing word puzzles for years. I am not particularly good at crossword puzzles, but I need to challenge my brain for it to heal, so I at least try. I hate anything to do with math, but I love doing Sudoku puzzles. I know that isn't a word game, but it is a type of puzzle that I enjoy. I do about a zillion word find puzzles a day and I sometimes give myself a time limit as an additional challenge. I also like the challenge of the cryptograms that are in some newspapers. The variety puzzle book that I get has many different types of word games: scrambles, codes, letterboxes and a host of other types of puzzles that keep me busy for a very long time.

What's on your dining room table right now?

A printer and assorted other things that a college girl uses for her studies.

Do you like Italian food?

Yes, I like Italian foods. We generally just have spaghetti, but I have really enjoyed other Italian foods that I have had.

Did you ever want a brother, twin, or sister, when you were a child?
I can't say whether I ever wanted one or not when I was little. By the time my brain woke up to the fact that other people were around, I had three younger siblings. I was approximately seventeen months old when my twin brothers were born and they were about seventeen months old when our little sister was born. I was 2 years and 11 months old when she was born. It was upon me before I knew what was happening. :)

 Since I have them, I reckon I'll keep 'em!

How far away is the nearest grocery store?

The nearest regular grocery store (HEB) is about two miles from our house. Walmart is about four miles across town. Our HEB is a medium-sized one. There is a really big one about fifteen miles away to the south of us. The really, really huge stores (Kroger, etc.) are about thirty miles away, closer to the Sugar Land/Houston area, north of us.

    1. What is your favorite Italian food, Denise?

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

  2. I love the challenge of word games too...It lets me know I am still able to think straight.

    1. They are certainly a good exercise for the brain, some more than others! :)

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

  3. Cute photo! I'm assuming that you are the girl with glasses.

    1. Yep, that's me. :) I got tormented to no end about wearing those glasses, but looking back, I think they were really pretty cool. I also think it very funny that they had to customize the length of the ear pieces because my eyelashes were so long that they hit the lenses when I blinked. :) I wish that my eyelashes would grow like that now! They are long on the left eye and just regular on the right eye. How weird is that?
