Wednesday Chat #1
Hey everyone! Happy mid-week.
I was just introduced to a fun little thing that happens over on Everyday Ruralty on Tuesdays, so I wanted to join in. She offers five random questions to answer, and then link up over on her blog. It seems like a fun way for you guys to get to know me just a little bit better :).
1. What are your favorite condiments?
Without a doubt, mild salsa. It’s so versatile! You can eat on chips, tacos, burritos … the list goes on and on. It’s also great as a sauce element. For burgers, I’m all about the mayo and relish. For hot dogs, it’s ketchup and relish for me.
2. What are you reading?
The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson. It’s book 2 in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series. My husband loves these books and wanted me to read them, but even though I like to read, these are taking me forever to get through. I can’t really pinpoint why. I’ve been working on the series for 9 months now, though, and am just over halfway through.
For the read-aloud with my boys, we’re reading Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne, inspired by the Poppins Book Nook (more on that in a couple of weeks).
3. What was the last dessert you had?
Root beer float flavored frozen yogurt from one of those “You Top It” places. I topped mine with granola and graham cracker crumbs.
4. Wendell would like to know if you would build him a snowman. (If you don’t have snow, just pretend. He’s not detail oriented.)
Sorry, Wendell. No snow here in Oregon. You’re about a month late. (And I’m not very imaginative, so “just pretend” isn’t too good from me…)
5. Tell me something fun or interesting.
We recently painted some of the rooms in our house. My sewing room had been an awful bubble gum pink ever since we moved in (a 9yo girl occupied it before we moved in). To make matters worse, it was gloss, so the pink reflected in the light. Now it’s a lovely stone brown on three walls and heather purple on the fourth, all flat. I love it! In the master bedroom, we’ve painted it a gorgeous red wine color. Now I’m using the sewing room to make a bed-size quilt to compliment the new color in the master bedroom better than what we have. As soon as it’s done, there’ll be a picture here on the blog :).
Now it’s your turn. Would you do me the honor of answering one (or more) of these questions in the comments section? I’d love to hear from you!
