On one of my Visits With Mary, she had a little Q & A that makes for a nice quick blog post.
1. What time did you get up this morning?
5:30, and that is my normal time.
2. Diamonds or pearls?
Both. Normally I would choose diamonds, but I just inherited my husband’s aunt’s string of pearls. Then last week, hubby helped me pick out a pair of pearl earrings to match. The dainty earrings are one pearl each, topped with a diminutive diamond hung on a French wire. Love them.
3. What was the last film you saw at the cinema?
Gosh, I really had to think on this - The Martian.
4. What is your favorite T.V. show?
NCIS, although I also enjoy Masterpiece Mystery on PBS.
5. What do you usually have for breakfast?
2 pancakes with butter and syrup. This a.m. college girl made chocolate chip pancakes, so I had two of those with whipped cream. Yum!
6. What is your middle name?
I never liked my middle name, it started with an “e” and when I got married I switched it to my maiden name which starts with an “a”. (So yes, my initials used to be SEA!)
7. Favorite cuisine?
French cooking – small portion, rich sauces. My second choice which follows quite closely is Italian cooking – large portions, spicy sauces with tiramasu for dessert.
8. What foods do you dislike?
There aren’t too many edible items that I don’t like, but snow peas come to mind as something I would push to the side of the plate.
9. What is your favorite chip flavor?
Grippos brand barbeque – they load the seasoning on extra thick, although now that I am trying to be good – Sun Chips Harvest Cheddar aren’t too bad.
10. What is your favorite CD at the moment?
I recently hunted down a couple of older George Strait albums – Carrying Your Love With Me (1997) and Pure Strait –a compilation (1998). I like that there always seem to be some lesser known gems on each album. I still need to find several of his older albums and pick up his newest one: Cold Beer Conversation. That sounds just right for summer doesn’t it.
And there’s no better way to end this post that with a snap shared from his website:
