Here I go again! Thank you Cee for motivating me… I need this weekly post more than you need me… that is for sure!!!!!
Are you a morning or night person?
Undoubtedly I am a morning person. Even now that I have been retired over a year, my body clock works on the same schedule as ever. It started long ago. I was a farm girl from the start. Farm girls don’t sleep in. It’s a rule. Really… look it up! There were animals to feed and work to be done while the sun was out…. you know. “Make Hay While The Sun Shines”.
Then, of course, there was school. I started in first grade (1956) and retired from school in 2011. That is a lot of years in school and a lot of years up and waiting for the bus, for my 8 o’clock class, for my students to arrive. You get the picture. There is also this matter of the husband. Who is still a farmer. Who will not retire, ever.
Our His alarm goes off at 5:30 AM so we can lie in bed and listen to the weather and the farm markets. Fascinating stuff! Luckily he doesn’t eat breakfast until later when he’s on the run so I am spared cooking. Heck I never had time to cook breakfast for myself or 3 kids either….. cereal or toaster items. And lots of coffee.
I do my best work in the mornings. If I should happen to sleep in until say…. 7:00 AM or so… my day is truly ruined and I just wander aimlessly…
What is your preferred hot drink: coffee, tea, water or other?
Coffee with a splash of french vanilla creamer for the past 44 years (not the french vanilla… that’s a more recent development)
What was your favorite toy as a child . . . and now?
I had a metal doll house. It had tiny plastic furniture but no people. So I would take those tiniest pieces of Lincoln Logs…. and I would pretend they were the people. I spent hours playing with that.
If you had a choice which would be your preference salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, hot tub, ski resort or desert?
Salt water beach. I could spend days on the beach just lounging, reading, watching the ocean, watching the people, splashing around a bit, looking for shells (early in the morning, of course)…. my dream vacation.
This information from Cee:
I hope I am taking it easy on you this week. At least they were fairly easy and fun for me. I hope you enjoy this week’s questions. You can think hard about them and be extremely serious or you can have fun and dream and just let loose, or you can let your alter ego answer. Have FUN no matter what you do!!! Have a fabulous week everyone!!
