The Questions and the Answers

First things first, Happy Birthday to my wonderful, funny, beautiful husband. :)

1.Describe your 30's in one sentence. If you're not yet 30 tell us one thing you hope to accomplish once you hit that particular decade.

My 30s were full of babies, children, and the biggest move of my life.
  1. Is it harder for you to exercise or eat healthy?
Exercise is harder for me. Not because I don’t want to do it, necessarily, but because of breathing difficulties.
  1. June 7th is National VCR Day. Huh? Anyway this reminded me of something I saw on Facebook listing household items we no longer have and the VCR was on it. I couldn't put my hands on that list, but found another list here of 21 items we all had ten years ago, but which are now obsolete-
bookshelves (WHAT!!???), drip coffee makers, alarm clocks, file cabinets, desktop computers, printers, printed phone books, answering machines, fax machines, paper shredders, a Rolodex, CD racks, CD burners, china cabinets, home phones, entertainment consoles, DVD players, calculators, takeout menus, incandescent light bulbs, and cable TV

Your thoughts? How many on the list do you still have? Still use?

We still have and use a VCR as well as a DVD player. Our house is loaded with books, therefore, well-used bookshelves. There are at least 3 desktop computers here still in use, as well as a paper shredder, a Rolodex, CD racks, and CD burners. We have a couple of printers, one still in use and that one includes fax capabilities. “They” still deliver printed phone books about every year to the end of our driveway. We also have an old 500 phone, though we no longer have a landline. There are several calculators around here that are used. I think there is an incandescent light bulb still in one of the closets.
  1. What's something you see disappearing in the next ten years?
At the rate I’m going, ME!
  1. How did you celebrate your birthday this past year? Is that typical?
I have no clue what we did for my birthday last year and, yes, that is typical - the forgetting, that is.
  1. Insert your own random thought here.
I love the Moana movie! It is so inspirational. It awakened my heart to the call of my potter ancestors.



Have a blessed day, y’all!

  1. I think that most of us in a certain age group will continue to use these items for as long as we can.

    1. I think so, too. It doesn't make sense to toss something just because it is old or not the "newest cool thing". If it still works, we may as well continue to use it.
      Have a blessed Sunday, Debby. :)

  2. I certainly hope you will still be around in 10 years. XO

    1. Thank you, Ellen. I hope that you will be, too, for many, many more. You're a great friend. :)
      Have a blessed Sunday.

  3. Moana has opened our eyes to "the ancients" a little more. It is a great movie. I love you, My Zing!

    1. Yes, she has and it is. I love that movie and its songs. I especially love Grandma Tala. She's a cool lady. :) I love you, too, my Zing.
