Monday Quiz - 1/21/13

Acting Balanced

Just for fun I've decided to join Heather at Acting Balanced  and Wayne at Touristic for their blog hop Monday Quiz About Me.

 There are FOUR QUESTIONS that everyone can answer, and then you have the option to add a fifth question of your own for those who are visiting your blog to answer in the comment section, along with commenting on the four standard questions you answered!

Here are this week's Questions:
1. What was your favorite lunch this past week?
2. Do you shop online?
3. Do you get the "Winter Blues"?
4. Slippers, Socks, Shoes or Bare Feet?
 
And here's my question for you to answer in my comment section on this post:
5. What do you hope people will say about you after you die?


HERE ARE  MY ANSWERS TO THE ABOVE:

1.  What was your favorite lunch this past week?  My husband and I go out for a "date lunch" every Saturday afternoon when get gets off work at 3 pm.  This time we went to Abuelo's, our favorite place for Mexican Food. I had what I always have... the Alambre de Cameron, which is wood-grilled bacon-wrapped shrimp stuffed with jalapeƱo strips and cheese. It is soooo good!

2. Do you shop online?  Yes, it's so convenient, especially for books and gifts.  Amazon.com is my favorite website, they have so many different things and they ship fast!

3. Do you get the "Winter Blues"?  I don't like the cold, it makes me achy, and the short days/long nights are a little depressing too.  Saturday and Sunday it got up into the 60's here in West Texas after a week of cold, so that was really nice!  We went out and did some target practice yesterday afternoon, it felt good to spend some time outside without a coat on.

4. Slippers, Socks, Shoes or Bare Feet?  Definite bare feet in the house, shoes go off as soon as I enter the door!  If it's cool, I have some soft house slippers I wear.  Outside, I wear sandals 12 months out of the year, unless it snows.  My toes hate being confined in socks and shoes!

5. What do you hope people will say about you after you die? That I was kind and caring and tried to encourage people.

That's enough about me for this week... now hop on over to Monday Quiz About Me and get to know some other folks!   (And if you enjoy blog hops, stop back by here tomorrow and participate in my Two Shoes Tuesday writing prompt!)

  1. I hope people say I was a good person who worked hard and didn't expect anyone else to do things for her.

    1. I like this, I prefer to be independent and take care of myself too! Working hard is underrated... we appreciate what we have worked for! :-)

  2. I would hope they would say I was a good wife, mother, grandma, sister...and friend. Someone who loved the Lord with all of her heart and tried to encourage others and point them to Christ.

    I live in Crocs flip flops most of the time...but I got a warm pair of house shoes for Christmas, so they have been cozy.

    I do get the winter blues. I love spring, and autumn the best...and then summer...and lastly winter. But I know the Lord has a purpose for every season. (:>)

    Yes, I shop online at Christmas..and do most of it there. Just made a couple of trips to the stores this year. It sure makes me much less exhausted...and I can enjoy the season more.

    My favorite lunch this last week was Italian noodles. (:>)

    Love, Linda

    1. Judging from your blog, and all the loving interaction you have with family, I'm pretty sure that they would say just that, Linda! It sounds like a perfect fit! :-) You are right that Christmas shopping online is much less stressful... I don't enjoy fighting the crowds!

  3. I hope they say that the party won't be the same without me. I want people to party for me when I am gone.

    1. Love your answer! I agree that the final gathering should be a celebration of the life a person has lived, not a dark and gloomy affair. I would want people to smile and remember me as being just a wee bit crazy! :-)

  4. I hope they say I was a good wife, mother and grandmother. I also think they will say I was a sweet person. I get that all the time. Somebody told me recently that I had such a sweet spirit about me. That meant a lot to me.

    1. Nothing is nicer than being in the company of somenoe with a sweet nature, Mamaw,sometimes that seems a little rare these days. I'm sure your friends and family treasure you!

  5. I've always called shoes "foot bondage." LOL

    When I'm gone I hope people say I was a positive person that always made them a little happier when I was with them.

    1. I so agree, Nani, shoes are pure torture... solitary confinement! :-) I love postive people, and being around them, attitude is so contagious! Good for you!!

  6. I hope they think of me as a caring person. I have often seen Abuelos and wondered if it was a good restaurant. I will have to go there sometime!

    1. Abuelos has wonderful food, Karen! Their spinach casserole sidedish is yummy too, as are all their enchiladas! Oh,and the new "Chocolate Eruption" cake is to die for, I would go there just for that! :-))

  7. I hope that they say that even if I didn't make all the right choices, I tried.

    1. It's the trying that counts,Amber! We learn from our mistakes just as much as we learn from our successes, maybe more.I've made many bad choices in my life, but I can honestly say that as I get older I've learned to choose a little more wisely,at least most the time. :-)

  8. Honestly, the way I want to go out is to just be cremated and that's it. No service or anything. I just want my animals to be taken care of after I pass.

    1. Nothing wrong with simple departures, Blueyes. I agree about the animals, that's a concern for me too. My question is, are there people you hope will remember you after you're gone?

  10. That I was a good mom, great grandmother, and a fun person.

    1. I don't think there is any higher calling in life than to be a good mother... and then grandmother, if you do those things well, so many other kinds of good will follow! I love the desire to be known as a fun person too... everyone needs to know how to let down their hair and laugh and play a bit... laughter is good for the soul!

      Delete
  11. I hope people say that in my quiet way I made them laugh and happy and calmed the chaos.

    1. Quiet and calm are very peaceful things, and a true blessing in today's world, Patricia! I treasure friends like that because they help me settle my own noisy mind! I know that you've made people feel happy in your presence!

      Delete
  12. I hope people say the same things they say now while I am living. That I am passionate about living life in the rapture of now, and that I inspire them to do the same...

    only..

    after I'm gone, they can say it in the past tense :)

    1. I would gladly attest to the fact that you are all that and more now, in the present-tense, Louise! I think you are one of the most amazing people I know! I have no doubt that you'll be remembered for the same, by all the people whose lives you've impacted in such a positive way!

  13. I know I would like people to say that I was a wonderful mother, and someone that helped others.
    What I dont want is for anyone to say "I wish I would have told her this" or, "I wish I never would have said that..." I dont want anyone to have any regrets when my time comes.

    1. I love your thinking! We want our children to recall us with love and admiration, we want others to feel we were kind and caring. But what a great thought to wish that people wouldn't have regrets in their dealings with you. I would like to wish the same, and to add to that that I also could leave without many regrets about things I did or didn't do, though I'm certain there will be some!

    1. I beg to disagree, Wayne, you are VERY important in the lives of at least four people who will undoubtedly have some good things to remember about you as the years go on! :-)

  16. This turned out to be a fun blog hop and I truly appreciate everyone who participated. As most folks know, I love to ask questions, so #5 is right up my alley! Looking at the responses, what pleases me is that people chose things related to character content, rather than wealth, fame, or great accomplishments. Truly, to be loved and appreciated is the greatest blessing of all! :-)
