Diet Coke is always my drink of choice.  When it isn’t available to me, Diet Dr. Pepper is okay.  If we were back home in South Carolina, I would say iced tea. The sweeter, the better!  The water out here is too icky for a decent glass of iced tea.

Complete this sentence:  Never In My Life Have I….

Killed anybody.  I’ve strongly considered it at times, but I’ve never done it.

If you could be given any gift, what would it be?

If this gift can involve other humans, I would choose a totally healthy family.  If it is a gift of a materialistic nature, a house in the woods in the middle of nowhere would be the perfect gift for me.

What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep, toss and turn, or get up and try to do something productive?

If I can’t sleep, I get up and try to do something productive.  If David is still asleep, it needs to be both productive and quiet. 🙂   I have a huge task ahead of me re-taking this house from the effects of a houseful of children and their STUFF.  Even though I well-surpassed the 40 bags in the 40 Bags in 40 Days Challenge, I still have a long way to go.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am grateful for another week of no ER visits. We’re quickly coming upon the year anniversary (May 26) of David’s strokes and so far, so good!

I am looking forward to getting the rest of my We’re Related – Or, Are We? back-dated posts actually posted PS Annie! and PS Annie #2.  These are based on the potential relatives given to me on Ancestry.com’s app titled We’re Related.  I am hoping to get to work on either proving or disproving the suggested relationships.

I am also looking forward to making a major dent in the “Re-Take McClendon Villa” endeavor AND getting the current book read so that I can review it. The name of this book is Double Whammy by Gretchen Archer.

Please be sure to hop over and visit our hostess Cee!

Have a blessed day, y’all!

What Color of the Rainbow Are You?

Vanessa, from over at Vanessence, has been playing around with the quizzes again. How about heading over there to see her results!

You Are Green

You are a very intuitive person. You understand what people need. You are both a natural healer and persuader.

You’ve always found it easy to get what you want in life, whether that is material success or just making a difference in other people’s lives.

You change with the times, and if anything, you tend to lead the way toward the future. You anticipate what’s going to happen next.

You have the opportunity to be a very powerful person. What you end up doing with your power is up to you.

S is for Something #AtoZChallenge

S

S is for something because if I put spiders or snakes in the subject line, maybe you wouldn’t have clicked to read my post. :).

Spiders love me.  They are always snacking on me. Even a brown recluse got in on the Suz buffet back in 2011.  It caused a totally disgusting hole to open up on me, hanging flesh, the whole nine yards. But, aside from having a pretty high fever and being sick as a dog for a month, we were able to take care of it without a hospital stay.  Had I gone to the hospital available to me at the time, I probably would have died. It was a “you can check in, but you won’t check out alive” hospital. They went bankrupt this past November. Thank goodness that death machine is out of business!

Snakes are just a part of everyday living here in Texas. We have them in the yard and in the house and, though I’d rather not think this thought, probably in the car somewhere, too. One lady found rattlesnakes in her car in downtown a few years ago. Rattlesnakes, people!  Not the type of rattling you want to hear in your car, especially if you don’t hear or see them until you’re driving 70+ miles an hour on the freeway. Thankfully, they didn’t eat her and someone came to rescue her or, maybe they were rescuing the snakes. I can imagine that a major freak-isode happened when she realized what was in the car with her!

Last year, a King Cobra made the news when it escaped from its enclosure at a local house.  This house was across the street from David’s mother’s former house (she had recently moved from that house).  It seems this teenage boy kept all sorts of snakes as his pets in the garage. The King Cobra decided it didn’t like its digs there and went on walkabout. Folks were in a real tizzy until that thing was found, too, I’ll tell you!  Guess where they found it?  Seems ol’ King had decided to get a little education. They found it in the field of the local high school.  Can you imagine if that thing had gotten INTO the school?  OY!

Friendly Fill-Ins

Friendly Fill-Ins
21 April 2017

This is a fun meme co-hosted by McGuffy’s Reader and 15 and Meowing. Be sure to visit and join in the fun!

Friday_Fill-In_BadgeHere are the fill-ins:

1. The most interesting museum I have been to is _____________.

2. The most interesting historical place I have been to is _______________.

3. ___________________ is back!

4. I was surprised ___________________.

Here are my responses:

I have been to several museums.  The one that I was most excited to go to was at Graceland, Elvis’ home in Memphis, Tennessee.  But, I think the one here in town is pretty interesting. It has old toys, as in from David’s childhood, and things from the old post office, radios, farm equipment, an airplane, and all sorts of cool stuff. Part of the display there is a garden of plants native to Texas. They also have the childhood home of Dan Rather there.

The Star Fort in Ninety-Six, South Carolina, the Old Stone Church in Clemson, South Carolina, the Hermitage (home of Andrew Jackson), the Varner-Hogg Plantation in West Columbia, Texas, and the George Ranch are just a few of the many historic sites that I have been to in my 51 years on this earth. My most favorite of all, so far anyway, is the Biltmore House! I love that place. It is beautiful and magical and absolutely breathtaking when decorated for Christmas.

The birdie families are back! There is one building a nest in a light fixture on our patio as I type this. I have not been able to identify the bird yet, but I’m working on it. Whatever it is, it is a cute little thing.

I was surprised to see a bluebonnet on February 13 this year. They don’t usually show up until early March. Last year, we saw the first one on February 26. They seem to be getting earlier each year.
