Better Late than Never?

I had planned to join Joyce's Wednesday Hodgepodge but when Wednesday came around I didn't even look at the computer. I didn't finish grading the quizzes and I went to bed at 9:30! It was bus duty week for me and it absolutely wore me out!

So, I'm answering the questions but won't link up. Hopefully, next week (I mean this week), I'll be able to do it on Wednesday.

1. What is the most amazing weather you've ever seen?

Gee, I don't know that I've ever seen "amazing" weather. The blizzard of 93 comes to mind. I don't think I've ever seen so much snow at one time. The electricity was out until 11:00 a.m. in my neighborhood but it was out for days in our surrounding area.

I took a picture of a morning sunrise outside my front porch. My mom liked it so much she painted a picture and called it "yellow sky." It was really pretty.

2. What is a sound or noise you love?

Where do I start? I love the sound of rain on a tin roof, the sound of the ocean, and a baby's laugh!

3. Do you like seafood? What's your favorite seafood dish?

Well, sort of. I don't like to cook it (surprise huh?) mostly because of the smell. There was a place in Knoxville L and I would frequent that had wonderful grouper. It was my favorite. I also like crab cakes.

4. What part of your day requires the most patience?

I'm a high school teacher...what part of the day do I *not* need patience!

5. What's your favorite shade of blue?

I like the shade of blue that appears in the sky on one of those rare beautiful days that is accentuated by a few white fluffy clouds.

6. Do people underestimate you?

Wow, tough question. Probably not.

7. When was the last time you had butterflies in your stomach?

The good kind or the ones that made you sick? Hum, I need to think about that one. I really can't think of the last time.

8. Insert your own random thought here, and remember...I have a wooden spoon and I'm not afraid to use it.

Something that has been on my mind is the Christmas decorations that are up before Thanksgiving...and not just in the stores. I've seen a few houses already decorated. I don't decorate until about two weeks before Christmas and don't take them down until a week after Christmas. I'm hoping that the houses I've seen decorated are getting ready for family that will be coming for Thanksgiving and so they are having Christmas at Thanksgiving. I could agree to that. But come on, Christmas right after Halloween?? That just doesn't sound right. I not only like the different seasons spaced out, I also like the different holidays spaced out.

See you on Wednesday (if not before).


  1. I've been writing a post about the whole decorating definitely seems earlier than ever this year!

    Glad you played along...better late than never : ) Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. You probably could go ahead and link up...some people don't get around to checking out other answers until later, anyway!
    I'm with you about the decorations. I usually wait until football season is over, which has been the 2nd weekend in Dec. since we've moved home. I don't take the decorations down until Epiphany. It's so sad to have to take them down; everything seems so bare after they're down!

  3. I loved your answers. I had not thought about the other sounds that you love to hear...I love the sound of the ocean too...and the sound of rain on a tin roof. I also have to agree with you 100% about the Christmas decoration thing. We have a couple here in Rock Mills area who put theirs up...lit....Nov 1. I thought ....well, at least they waited until after Halloween....sigh!Where is the Knoxville Grouper place you like to eat...we go to knoxville....I love grouper...let me in on the secret.
