Here are this week's statements with the blanks:

Week 10: July 15, 2016

1. I prefer ________________ to ________________.

2. ____________________ was much harder than I expected.

3. One way that I relax is _____________ .

4. _____________ always makes me .

Here are my answers:

1. I prefer winter to summer. I do not like being hot at all. If I am cold, I can put on more clothes or blankets, but if I'm too hot…well, there's only so much I'm allowed to take off and not get arrested. I think what a person can get away with wearing/not wearing depends on how old and what size a person is and which cop is doing the deciding. . I would be in the "My eyes! My eyes!" and big ticket category, maybe even under the jailhouse. I prefer cool to cold weather and we just don't really get that here.

2. Leaving home behind was much harder than I expected. Actually, the leaving itself wasn't so hard, but the staying gone, in some ways, has become almost unbearable.

3. One way that I relax is_____________. I don't relax anymore. I am always on guard, it seems.

4. Eating always makes me sneeze. There is evidently a component common to almost all foods that makes me sneeze. We haven't been able to pin it down. There are foods that I have definite allergies to and they stop my breathing or squeeze my throat and other things. But, no matter what I eat, I end up sneezing.


  1. Thank you for participating, you always have great answers. I am completely with you on #1, I complain all summer, but never in the winter. I have never heard of sneezing while eating, I wonder what does cause that- I am sure it make eating unpleasant. Have a nice weekend!

    1. How hot does it get where you live in the summer and how cold are your winters? I probably complained sometimes about winter back home in South Carolina, but I don't think I ever have out here in Texas. And after this summer, I know I'll never complain about it getting cold...if it ever gets cold here. I'll be too happy about finally being comfortable. :)

      Most of the time, the sneezing waits until I'm done eating. Sometimes it gets impatient and starts toward the end of the meal. It does get very annoying and, if we're eating in public, very embarrassing.

      Thank you for co-hosting Friendly Fill-Ins. We enjoy them very much. :)

      Have a great weekend!

  2. Good point on why you prefer winter! Have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Thank you, Jeanne. :) I hope that you have a great weekend, too!

  3. Oh, my gosh! I always say the exact same thing: "I do not like being hot at all. If I am cold, I can put on more clothes or blankets, but if I'm too hot…well, there's only so much I'm allowed to take off ".

    I am so sorry that you always feel "on guard". I understand, and know how that feels. Most of the time I do feel that way, unfortunately. Please know that I am here, if you ever need a shoulder.

    Thanks for being a part of Friendly Fill-Ins. We could not do it without friends like you. HUGS.

    1. How cool that you feel the same way about the heat!

      Thank you, Annie. I really appreciate that very much. I am sorry that you know how it feels to be always on guard, too. Please know you can write to me anytime, too. {{{Hugs}}}

      Thank you for co-hosting the Friendly Fill-Ins. David and I really enjoy it and look forward to reading the posts involved. :)

      Have a blessed day. :)
