Friendly Fill-Ins

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


Here are the fill-ins:

  1. As a child, my favorite playground activity was ______________.
  2. For breakfast, I have ___________________.
  3. An instrument I would like to play is _________________________.
  4. I always try to _________________, because _____________________.

Here are my responses:

I loved all of the activities on the playground except for the monkey bars. I was never any good at going from one rung to the next. I always fell off.  I loved the swings, the merry-go-round, and the slide. I think I loved the slide the most. I could do flips and all sorts of things at the top of our playground slide. It was a risk, dangerous, and that made it so much fun to do. The swing was great…the higher, the better! I loved to lie down on the merry-go-round with my eyes closed while it was spinning. It was an awesome feeling to open my eyes and have the world spinning along with me.  I know. I was a weird kid. Still am. 🙂

What we have for breakfast varies. Sometimes it is peanut butter crackers, sometimes a sandwich, sometimes leftovers from the last meal, and sometimes even breakfast foods like grits or eggs or cereal.

When I was a little girl, I wanted to play the violin. By the time I got to high school, I wanted to play the saxophone. Now, I would be happy to be able to play the piano.  I was never able to have lessons for anything like that and no longer have the retention needed to play.

I always try to read in my Bible every day because it is one way to grow closer to Heavenly Father and improve my walk with Him and with others in my life.

    Hi Suzanne, I read your blog almost daily, and David’s. I receive his in my email, and even though I signed up to get your in email I do not. I have tried twice. What should I do?

    • Hi Trudy,

      Thank you for being a loyal reader for both of us. 🙂
      Is it this blog, McClendon Villa, that isn’t working via email or my PS Annie! blog(on Blogger)?
      Other people are having this problem with my blog, too, and I don’t have a clue how to fix it. I am not well-versed in WordPress and Blogger, once I think I have it figured out, it changes just so I can stay confused. 🙂

      I will see what I can do to get this problem resolved. Thanks so much for writing. Have a blessed weekend.
