An Excited Hodgepodge

Joyce posts the questions on her blog From This Side of the Pond and we answer them on our blog each Wednesday.  Thank you for joining me this week.

1. What's a talent you wish you had? 

I would love to play the piano like my friend, Sarabeth.  But since there is no one like her, that is only a dream.

2. In one word, what's your state of mind right now?

Excited !  (See #6)

3. What's the next major purchase you need to make? Will it happen this month? This year?

A new vehicle and hopefully it will happen this month. 

4. Tuesday (April 2nd) was National PB and J Day...did you celebrate? Is a peanut butter and jelly sandwich something you eat weekly or more? What's your favorite kind of jelly?

I did not celebrate and wasn't even aware it was PB and J Day.  I do love a good PB & J sandwich though and would  eat one on a weekly basis for sure, if it weren't so fattening.  The only jelly to eat with PB is grape.  Otherwise, my favorite is peach. 

5. Are you easily intimidated? Who or what intimidates you?

I am not easily intimidated, and there isn't anyone that I know who intimidates me.  However, I could be intimidated were I in a room with highly skilled mathematicians or scholars and expected to compete. 

6. Insert your own random thought here.

Why am I excited?  Our son and daughter-in-law fly in Wednesday morning for a several day visit with us.  We can hardly wait.  Also, this Saturday, our first great grandson will have his 2nd birthday and his mother will turn another year older on Monday and we get to celebrate them both on Sunday.  Those are all good things to look forward to and reasons to be excited.
