  1. I am the same way. I would rather stay home than go to social functions. I'm just not into always going and doing and partying and all that.

    What was the crime you were on the jury for? I think that serving on a jury would be interesting and would be a good source of writing ideas. At this point, though, I wouldn't be able to serve on a jury. David needs me here to take care of him and I'm fine with that, especially in this town.

    Have a blessed weekend!

    1. I feel the same way about going out all the time. Just not me.

      The defendant was charged with five felonies including the attempt to kill a policeman with his car. In the end, after much deliberation we had to go with Not Guilty on all five charges because of reasonable doubt in two, and presumed innocence in the three lesser charges based on the evidence we had to base it on. It was a truly interesting trial, and I sincerely hope he takes this opportunity to turn his life around. It took four years to come to trial, much too long.

  2. We both prefer to stay home, put a little Hotel Transylvania 2 on the DVD player, eat a tomato sandwich, and avoid the whole social thing. Around here, all social events, even a child's first birthday party, center around alcohol. We just aren't into that sort of thing.

    1. Amen to that, David! Our idea of a fun time is any time we are able to spend together. We are definitely not into the alcohol/party scene either, left that behind many years ago!

  3. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins, great answers. I am with you on the staying in to going out. I am sure that jury trial was interesting, although I hope to never have to be on one. Have a great weekend!

    1. Thank you! Staying in together is so much more comfy! I always felt that way too, and would be relieved when I wasn't selected for jury in the past. This was such an interesting trial and I learned a lot from it. I am truly glad I got to serve and would gladly do it again now.

  4. I prefer quiet home time to social outings, too. I am not surprised that you like colouring, though I am surprised you like the beach. I don't see you as a beach bunny! I like lakefronts, oceansides, but not "beaches". I think people kind of ruin it for me; nature...yes.

    I am so happy you are part of Friendly Fill-Ins. Thank you for joining us. HUGS!

    1. Oh no, I am clearly not into the beach bunny scene!! I love walking or sitting on the beach at sunrise and sunset, or under the moonlight. I love taking the ferry and seeing dozens of dolphins playing in the waves around us. I do now like hot, crowded times at the beach, we do not go there in the summer!

  5. I just put that Colourfy app on my girls devices and they really love it! It will come in handy for our long car ride.
    I think we have fit in 7 beach days now this summer. Glorious. :)

    1. The Colorfy app would be perfect for travel time! I like to keep my hands busy if waiting somewhere or watching TV with Papa Bear. I love that you can save your designs and print them out, and even upload your own designs to color if you buy the upgrade option! Lucky you with beach time, though I prefer it cooler and less populated!

  6. I am pretty much a homebody, if I do go out it is someplace not too crowded or noisy with one or two friends. I was called for jury duty once and was very happy not to be called to serve at a trial.

    1. I agree about going out, it is nice with one or two people, some times, but I am happiest to be with Papa Bear either at home or out someplace quiet together. I honestly think you would have found this trial to be a very educational experience. It weighs on you when you are holding someone's freedom in your hands. Had he been convicted he could have received up to 99 years for attempting to kill the police officer, but we didn't believe that was ever his intent or action as shown by the evidence.
