It's Ba-a-ck!

Lidna over at 2nd Cup (http://2nd-cup-of-coffee.blogspot.com/ )has come off of hiatus for the Random Dozen, a fun meme where you answer 12 seemingly random questions.  Join in, won't you?  - Sorry, unable to add links in the text, so they are in parenthesis....
1. When was the last time you laughed until you cried?

At my nieces wedding watching my extended family attempt to dance. We gots us some MOVES!

2. If you found $10 today, what would you do with it?

Spend it on school fees at registration this week, probably.  Or a new bridge for my new electric violin...

3. Do you volunteer anywhere?

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha…..(I work at a church and have four kids…what do you think?)

4. What is your favorite summertime veggie or fruit, and how do you eat it?

Strawberries. No, raspberries. No, wait..blueberries…OK…BERRIES! Yes! In a boat, with a goat, in a house, with a mouse, here there, everywhere…well, you get the idea.

5. Is your social sphere (circle of friends) small, medium or large?

Close circle is smallish...probably four REALLY close friends. Extended “family” is large…  (I work at a church and have four kids..what do you think?)

6. When was the last time you attended a family or school reunion? How did that go?

See # 1..said niece’s wedding was pretty much a family reunion of sorts. It was awe.some.

7. When you're feeling blue, what is the best way someone can cheer you up?

Send me a text, drop me an email or leave me a note telling me they are praying for me and love me!

8. Have you taken a vacation this summer?

See # 1 and #6 (it was multi-purpose)

9. What is the most unnecessary item you carry with you all the time?

A mirror in my purse. Second only to the hairbrush in there…seldom used away from home.

10. What is the best summer flick you have seen so far?

Totally embarrassing…the only movie I’ve seen in the theater since…February? is Shrek III…or IV…not sure where they are. I watched The Book of Eli from Netflix…it was quite good. And I’m currently watching the Starz series Pillars of the Earth, also on Netflix. As it’s one of my favorite novels, and they are treating it well, I’m really enjoying that, too.

11. Describe a perfect summer day.

Coffee on the porch with Ted watching the sun come up…a little Facebook, a little breakfast, a little workout…a lot of hanging out…a little nap and a lazy float down the river in an inner tube before a thunderstorm…

12. Please a share a favorite photo from the summer so far!
Way too many favorites to choose just one....

We're watching Pillars of the Earth too, mostly on DVR as we've been away the past couple of Fridays. We will watch last week's episode tonite. I loved the book too and so far am pretty happy with the mini series.

I liked Pillars of the Earth too, looking for ward to getting it on Netflix.

#11 sounds nice, minus the thunderstorm!

I think watching people dance is one of the funniest things on earth, and probably why I cannot bring myself to dance in public.

Loved the pics, Pam! Thx for playing.
