Good Giggles

Are you experiencing an after Christmas slump?       I hope not.

Not me!    My extended family had to postpone our traditional Christmas Eve celebration, due to so much sickness.    So, for New Year’s Eve, we will be celebrating Christ’s birth all over again!     We might find out we like that even better!     (And if we decide to do it next year- Bonus!     We could get all our gifts at the after Christmas clearance sales!!        That would be a score!)

Anyway, here’s your Monday memes (which did indeed turn out to become a long running series anyway- due to its popularity!) to get your laughter button turned on.     Or as Granny, and Grandma used to say, “Somebody turned your giggle box over”!!     I think I need to revive that phrase!

It’s a mixed bag today.      No theme, I’m still too busy wrapping presents!

Plant City, FL The Winter Strawberry Capital of the World

 

 

If you could change one thing what would it be?

This is hard.  Before March, I would have said my weight.  Before a year ago August, I would have said my slobbishness.  Before June, I would have said owning my own home.  Now, hmmmm, I would change America back to a Christian country.

What is your favorite childhood memory?

My Mama hugging me.

What is your dream job?

Being a proofreader.  And now I get to do that every time I write a post! Yay!  I just don’t get paid. 😦

What was your best subject at school?

Reading.  Wonder why???

4 journals

4 of 6 journals

 

 

Do you prefer to live in the country or the city?

Oh, definitely country-ish.  I don’t want to live in the middle of a million people, but I don’t want to have to drive 5 miles to even get to the road, either!  I like exactly where I am.  And that’s a nice place to be!

If you were stranded on a desert island which celebrity would you take with you?

A celebrity?  Hmmm, maybe Tim Tebow, so we could talk about Jesus.

 

Everyone has a song that makes them want to dance, what is yours?

Everybody Get Up and Dance Now!

Favorite colour?

I’ll let my readers answer this one. Y’all know it!

make all things purple

YES!! Please!!

 

 

Do you prefer camping, caravaning or staying in motels?

Motels, by a landslide.  I hated camping as a kid.  My brother would run his finger along the canvas right on top of my head.  Yuck!!  Drip, drip.  He invented water boarding!

How many different careers have you had?

Umm, not paying ones?  Or only counting when I got paid?  Non paying; about 15.  (babysitter for my siblings, piano player at church, professional serial dater in college, clown, Grammar Nazi, etc.)  Paying: only about 7.  (retail sales, McDonald’s, transport for hospital, teacher, sub teacher, mentor/tutor, call center.  Oh yeah, 8- my 2 day career as a nanny.  54 is TOO OLD to watch 3 in diapers!!)

Bundles of Bibles

Guess how many Bibles I had on my Expedit??  Go ahead- guess!

6!!  ( I couldn’t wait.  Sorry I blurted it out, before you had a chance to think.)

Children's version

And I’m fully certain I can’t read all of them at once.  So, that being said, more than 1 or 2, might be {gulp}

clutter.  Shudder.   I can’t believe I just admitted that!

Hence, the need for de-cluttering.

Now, decision time;  exactly how many Bibles does 1 person need?

Let me start reasoning this out:  The burgundy one in the top photo is fairly new, large print, but is not sentimental to me, at all.  So, that one can go.

The orangish one is an old one of mine that is not sentimental at all either, so it can go.

Hey, this de-cluttering stuff isn’t as hard as I thought it would be!

The brown, spotted one is a really old one of Mama‘s, that she wrote comments in.  That one can NOT go!!  It is very sentimental to me.  I love reading it occasionally, and seeing what verses were particularly meaningful to her.

The one at the bottom, with a tree on it, was given to me by my parents, when I was 8.  VERY sentimental!   Keeping that one as well.

So, let’s see; so far out of 4 Bibles, I’ve gotten rid of 2, and kept 2.  Hmmmm…. 50%- how bad is that?

Any reduction in stuff, is good, right?  Nicole?  Kristen?

Considering I won’t have any bookshelves in my new place….  oh wait!  I have Granny’s corner cabinet!!

It has shelves!!  That can be my Bible bookshelf!  Hurray!

Of course I’m keeping the purple one.  (that’s a no brainer!)

Finaally, A Little De-Cluttering.

And when I say, a Little de-cluttering, I do mean, little!

When I published the pic of Granny’s Gorgeous Corner Cabinet the other day, did you happen to notice the tiny bouquet on the top left?

20150311_151837

Well, it doesn’t look as bad in the pic as it did in real life.  And be very thankful we don’t have smellavision yet!

It was….um…. yeah… dead.  And decaying.  (In my defense, it had ONLY been 3 weeks and 2 days since I received it for my birthday from Brother!  Aren’t flowers supposed to last a month?? No???)

20150318_130935

See, Mama? I did it! I am capable of de-cluttering!  It just takes me a little while to even notice the mess!  I have Slob-o-vision.  Which means, I really don’t even see the messes anymore.  But, I kinda started smelling this one!

So, there it is, all nice and cleaned off.  It even inspired me to do a little decorating, the rest of the living room looks so nice!

20150320_143926

Okay, that is a really horrible picture.  I just snapped it on the way out the door this morning.  No lights on in the living room.  So, I will have to retake in better light.  But it’s a beautiful amethyst vase, that coincidentally, was also given to me by Brother.  He’s so sweet to me!

I will try to remember to retake the pic in better light, and post later.

I’m a Slogger, not a photographer!  (Just in case you couldn’t tell.)
