Sunday Stealing

Around the House
Bedroom: what’s your sleep schedule? I don't really have one. And I should. I have a terrible habit of dozing off on my sofa after work, and then I wake up after midnight and can't get back to sleep. BAD GAL!
Kitchen: favorite comfort food? Lately I've been eating a lot of graham crackers.
Washroom: showers or baths? bubbles? bath bombs? Usually showers, but I have bubble bath on hand for those days when I want to enjoy a nice, long soak.
Closet: sum up your style in a few words. Jeans, t-shirts and pullovers.

Parlor: favorite party or board game? Scrabble.
Living room: what do you like to do with your family? Just catch up. We don't get together as a clan very often.
Dining room: favorite special occasion food? Prime rib.
Garden: favorite tree? flower? I love carnations. I know they're often dismissed as "filler flowers," but I think they're great. Such sturdy, colorful flowers.
Attic: what’s one thing you have a sentimental attachment to and you will never throw away? I treasure a ceramic cable car that belonged to my favorite grandpa.
Library: favorite book genre? I bounce between mysteries and biographies.
Office: if you could have any job in the world, what would it be? I'd like to be a pet sitter. Wouldn't it be great to be paid for being a crazy cat lady?
Guest room: have you been to a sleepover? if so, when was your first? do you like them? Lots of sleep overs when I was in junior high. I don't recall my first. But yes, they were great fun.
Foyer: do you like small gatherings, large parties, or one-on-one meetings? I like small gatherings.
Pantry: favorite meal to make? I love slapping a salmon filet onto my George Foreman grill. While it's sizzling, I make myself a salad. Then I tell myself what a healthy eater I am.
Laundry: favorite and least favorite chore? I have no favorite chores. Though I am good at laundry. Here's a tip -- go to a beauty supply store and buy a bottle of clarifying shampoo. It's great for removing food stains, grass and blood.
Garage: favorite mode of transportation? favorite car? I enjoy riding the rails. I'm a big fan of Amtrak.
Panic room: what was the most nerve-wracking experience you’ve had? I'm terrified every time I get on a plane (which I'm doing next week).
Powder room: do you wear makeup? if so, what one item can’t you live without? what’s your favorite look? I wear makeup, but I spend more time on my skin care regimen. As I get older, my goal is to wear less makeup. I think once we pass a certain age, it ages rather than enhances us.


  1. I love a big, colorful bouquet of Carnations! Especially if they have a nice smell to them. Sadly, I find they often don't.

    Isn't it amazing how good your feel about your diet when eat salmon...cancels out that bag of chips you had last night or the caramel-apple pie with ice cream you're going to have for dessert. It's kind of like having diet Coke with your Big Mac and super-sized fries, I guess. LOL

    Enjoy your Sunday and have a great week!

  2. ...and carnations smell good too!!

  3. My mom always grew a lot of your favorite flowers, and most of them had a nice spicy smell.
    And, yes, it would be so nice to be paid to be a crazy cat lady. Lol! Loved your answers.

  4. Another carnation lover ... yeay! From the time I was little, my father would buy me a green carnation on my birthday (St. Patrick's Day).
    That's interesting about the clarifying shampoo. I'm going to try that on hubby's shirts.

    PS - I used to enjoy dunking Graham Crackers in milk every afternoon after school!

  5. I so concur with your last answer. Makeup tends to age women, which is fine when you're 16 wanting to be 20, but not so much when you're 70 trying to look 50. ;-)

  6. I've got a sleepover next weekend--a girlfriend getaway!

    I would love to get paid for being a crazy cat lady! Unfortunately I'm allergic but that would be a cool gig. - I totally agree with you about the makeup. It's meant to enhance, add color not fill in the cracks with putty! - Stopping by from Sunday Stealing. I'll be back. :)

  8. I'd love to be a dog walker. I agree with you about makeup after a certain age.

  9. I agree with you on the makeup. I wear less of it now and have noticed if I'm not careful in application that it enhances the wrinkles. And nobody wants to see those.
