SOME NEIGHBORHOOD COLOR and "ALL ABOUT ME: FROM A to Z"


So let's go "forward" a little and see what colors we will see in a few weeks.  It has been so warm here that, except for a few leaves falling, everything is still as green as "summertime"


And "NOW" 
DRUM ROLL PLEASE,
"ALL ABOUT ME, FROM A to Z
(Read fast, so you won't get too bored, or fall asleep!  LOL)

AGE:  So why couldn't you have asked me that before September!!!  Let's just say I slid out of the seventys, kicking and screaming all the way and am loving every minute of it!
BED:  My dream Queen Size Black Pencil Post
CHORE I HATE: Cleaning Toilets...doesn't everyone!
DOG:  Oh don't I wish.  I love dogs!  Used to raise Mini Dachshunds.  Fun! Fun! Fun!
ESSENTIAL START TO MY DAY:  Orange Juice
FAVORITE COLOR:  I would have to say "RED" with "BLUE" a close 2nd
GOLD OR SILVER:  Silver!  With this hair???   LOL:.
HEIGHT:  5 ft., 6 inches
INSTRUMENTS I PLAY:  None for me but Mr. S.O. plays guitar and we sing together.  Does that count?
JOB TITLE:  Interior Re-designer, Color Consultant, Retired Admin., Mom, Grandma, friend.  Wow, no wonder I am so tired!  LOL
KIDS:  Two beautiful daughters
LIVE IN:  Northern California, but hail from Illinois and Minnesota
MAKE OF CAR:  A beautiful Honda CRV

ARE YOU STILL WITH ME HERE
HANG ON, WE'RE HALF WAY THERE!

NICKNAMES:  Joyful and Joyous
OVERNIGHT HOSPITAL STAY: Two kids, Breast Cancer and One broken knee repaired.
PET PEEVE: Bad Drivers on Cell Phones.  It's illegal here to drive and use a cell phone!!!
QUOTE FROM A MOVIE:  "I'll have what she's having!" from "When Harry Met Sally"  Loved It!
RIGHT OR LEFT HANDED:  Left, but play golf and knit right handed
SIBLINGS: One dear brother who passed away too young from Cancer. :-(
T.V.SHOWS:  Favorite right now is "Sarah's House" on HGTV on Saturdays.  She is so smart, entertaining and a good decorator.  They explain the "why" of making the choices they do.  Love it and try not to miss it.
UNDERWEAR:  "What you get when you stop believing in Santa."  (Fooled ya, didn't I!)  LOL
VEGETABLES I HATE:  That's a "no-brainer" for me:  Cooked Spinach..
WHAT MAKES ME LATE:  I don't allow enough time to get ready!  Used to do a "5-minute-face" but if you refer to "A" above, you will see why.  More stuff to hide all those silly things that appear overnight!  LOL
X-RAYS: Yes, from Brain, "Nope, there's nothing there" to Knee, ":Yep, it's broken alright."
YUMMY FOOD I MAKE:  Everything I make is yummy, or at least Mr. S..O. better say so!  LOL  But I do make a great Coconut cake...with the kind help of Betty Crocker, of course!  LOL  Hey, she's the PRO!
ZOO:  Well, my house has been known to be a zoo when the girls were still home, but for animals at the ZOO, I            really like to watch the Giraffes; they are fascinating to me.  And no "double chins" on those long necks!  LOL


So I need to thank all the bloggers who have done this on their blogs; 
some have even given prizes for it which
is really cool.
the names of some that I have seen are:
Renee, Tammy, Betty, Misi and
(oh, well, refer again to "A" and see why I forgot the others)
See, it's great to get "more mature"  HA!  because everyone expects me to be a little nutty!
And I Am!  So There!
But I am sure having fun...

I will leave you with that until next time.
A huge project going on right now but can't show it yet???

LOVE YOUR COMMENTS!

  2. Hi Joy,
    Thanks so much for visiting my blog...as usual you are the loyal one! You must think I don't care...but I do - I just am lousy with getting to the blogs. When I get a comment from someone it spurs me on to get on the blogs and leave comments.
    Now....I loved getting to know you better - although I did know a few things about you....lol

    Off to read your other posts!
    Hugs,
    Karen

    We are a lot alike except I like cooked spinach but I promise never to serve it for dinner if you drop by to eat.
    Have a great week and keep having fun.
    Thanks for visiting me from time to time. It always brings me joy when I see I have a comment from Joy!!!
    hugs, Lura
