Ten on Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday, everyone! As I write this post on my Monday evening...I'm feeling cynical. The past 2 days at work have made me grumpy. So let's just move on.

Isn't it exciting that the world didn't end? I thought I'd never do a Ten On Tuesday again.

1. Have you ever used Craigslist?
Yes. My husband uses it a lot whenever we can't go to the UA football games that we have season tickets for. We also get lots of bites!

We also found the house we're currently renting on Craig's list!


2. Can you sew?
I learned how to sew. Let's end the conversation there.

I would do it for 20 minutes and go absolutely loca! However, I haven't tried sewing since I was about 11 years old.

When something needs patching, or buttons need sewing around our house? My husband does it!
3. Do you pour syrup on your pancakes or dip your pancakes in the syrup?
I don't eat pancakes. Never really liked them. And now I'm Gluten free. I'm a good person to be GF, being I really don't like pancakes, waffles, cupcakes, cake, donuts, and all that other crap.

4. Rain storms: Love them or hate them?
ADORE THEM! Especially now that I live in a place where it rains like...2 times/year. (I'm exaggerating...kind of)

I even liked them when I lived in North Dakota, though. There's something exciting and cozy about them. I could really go for a rain storm right now.

However, I am so grateful to live somewhere not being affected by the tornadoes & natural disasters. My prayers go out to those enduring such hardship!
5. Do you like swimming?
I love it. As a child, I was like a fish. I could swim all day. And I did when we were at the lakes.

And I still love it. I plan on jumping into the lake upon arrival to our cabin this June! I also enjoy swimming laps and find it very relaxing, while still being an awesome cardio workout!!

6. What kind of drink do you order at Sonic?
Strawberry-Lime Real fruit slush. With extra limes! Yum.
7. Are you funny?
Because at times I think I'm funny, and find myself laughing at my own jokes -- that is a sign that I am not at all funny.
8. At what age will your kids get cell phones?
Not applicable.


9. What’s your favorite vegetable?
Tomato. I could eat tomatoes solely for a meal. Yum. I also have a fond love for cucumbers. My mouth actually waters as I think about garden-grown burpless cucumbers.
10. Were you a Girl Scout?
Nope! I was in 4-H, though. Which was like...North Dakota version of Girls Scouts. You could show animals (including farm animals), enter in garden-competitions, baking, sewing, even electrical. My grand prize was attained by wiring this cool circuit with my Dad.

I also tried "showing" our cat Allegro. It didn't go well. My cat was more like a tiger. It actually growled. And let's just saw it growled like an angry bull in heat when I stuffed him in a kennel and tried bringing him to a "4-H show".

I think you are funny. Esp when you tell stories. :)

What are burpless cucumbers? I have never heard of such a thing! I have a good snack suggestion. A rice cracker + red pepper hummus (holy land brand is GF) + a slice of a cucumber. SO good.

I like Pancakes still... this is a good GF mix called Pamela's that i use. I don't have them very often since I only eat pancakes when mom makes them. SO pretty much only when I am at the lake or home for a holiday.

I'm with you on the pancakes. I have never been a fan. Also, I love swimming laps. My present routine is to do 36 pool lengths. It is a good exercise for someone my age!!! I also failed at sewing, perhaps because my older sister (ahem) was so good at it. Why take the time to teach the youngest, who is totally unmotivated?

And, I think you pretty much proved you were funny when you wrote about showing Allegro. Ha!

And you did so well on your speeches to entertain - remember? You made everyone laugh except our principal! Tsk Tsk! On #8, you can project what age your future children will be when they get or don't get a cell phone! :)!!! #2. Your quilt project is still in the cupboard - I will finish it someday for you and surprise you!
