Wednesday Medley for January 2
Yes, it's Wednesday again, which means it's time for the Wednesday Medley hosted by Terri at Your Friend from Florida!
Terri asks the questions and bloggers come up with their own answers.
Wouldn't you like to join in also? Just head over to Terri's blog,
get the questions, then copy, paste, and answer them on your own blog.
Then you can go back to Terri's and link up. Here we go with the
1. Will you observe National Science Fiction Day as recommended above? Do you even like science fiction?
No, I'm not likely to observe Science Fiction Day. It's not a preferred genre of mine.
2. Have you chosen a "word" for 2019? Many people do. THIS QUIZ might help you find your word!!
Yes, I have chosen the word Courage for 2019 and hope to blog about it later in the week.
3. Did you stay up to see the new year in? Are you happy or sad to see 2018 go?
I did not stay up to see the new year in, and thankfully our neighbors didn't either. 2018 has gone regardless of what I think about it, but I think I'm more sad than happy to see it go. It was not without its challenges, some of them quite difficult, but overall it was a good year with many blessings and wonderful memories to look back on.
I really enjoy the Tournament of Roses parade on New Year's Day but
rarely get to sit and enjoy the entire parade because I am cooking. Did
you watch the parade? Did you cook/eat the traditional foods (pork,
black-eyed peas, kraut, greens...) to begin the new year?
I've never watched that parade -- well, maybe once, decades ago. Nope, no traditional new year foods. Occasionally I have done that, but my hubby usually has to work and considers it "just another day", so ... there you go.
5. I have to ask... Resolutions. Did you make any or set some new goals for 2019? Or do you even think about it?
No resolutions, but I am in the process of formulating my goals for 2019. I also will take a look back at 2018 and probably post about my reflections on the year.
6. Tell us something random about your week.
Let's see. It's another odd-feeling week, with a holiday on a Tuesday. No mail, no newspaper, yet my hubby is at work. Very strange.
And just like that, another Wednesday Medley is in the books!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
