1.July 15th is National Give Something Away Day. What can you give away? Will you?

I have been in a give away mode now for a couple of months.... Unbeknownst to my daughter, I now have a box of items I'm giving her to deal with as she chooses... a few books I used when i was her age in planning social events, a couple of cook books of my mom's and a few items from the hutch that were passed down form other family members.. Otherwise, I have packed several boxes of donations to the Discovery Shop to raise money for cancer research... It has been purge month!!!

2. Do you have a mantra? Please share with the class if you feel comfortable doing so.
I suppose my mantra is " Just give it to the Lord!"

3. Who does the grocery shopping in your house? How many times a week do you shop? Do you make a list or pray for inspiration in the produce aisle?
I used to do it all the time after I retired, but now that we are both retired we either take turns or go together..Sometimes we make several small stops while we are out ... We do better when we just buy a few items as needed instead of stocking up on a ton of stuff that gets stuffed away and forgotten! I am pretty bad about planning meals ahead unless I have company coming... I usually just buy what we enjoy eating and we eat the same thing a lot ... for example, we love fresh melons and berries and salads of all kinds in summer... a bit of deli meat, cheese and bread and we're pretty set in summer... We keep the larder stocked with granola fresh fruits, and yogurt for breakfasts and a goodly supply of Thomas's English Muffins and peanut butter.... . now as autumn approaches my cooking mode kicks in, but keeping it simple in summer is our way!!!

4. Is there a TV show you're embarrassed to say you watch? You're going to tell us what it is, right?

Well, I will go ahead and confess I read all of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander books and loved them,.... I dont have Starz network so can't watch the series, I understand it is as racy as, but at least monogamous, the books and just as violent, Im sure.... but since they were all filmed in Scotland and I so enjoyed the historical aspect of the books,  I have purchased season one on dvd...although we havent watched it yet... maybe this winter.

5. A recent article listed fifteen words we should eliminate from our (written) vocabulary in order to sound smarter-
that, went, honestly, absolutely, very, really, amazing, always, never, literally, just, maybe, stuff, things, and irregardless......Of the fifteen, which word is your most overused?

I use the word "just" all the time... and oddly when I type I forever more transpose the "s"  and the" u"  and have to go back and fix it..... that is why know that I use it all the time!!!!

6. So apparently dying your hair gray (in your youth!) is a thing right now. It's called 'The Granny Hair' trend. Your thoughts?
Not a fan..... of any unnatural hair color trend.

7. A while back Buzz Feed asked members to share the most beautiful sentence they've read in a piece of literature. A hard thing to narrow down, at least for me, but let's try. What's one of the most beautiful sentences you've ever read in a piece of literature? Maybe not the most beautiful but most sensible!
“There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.” ― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I am trying to learn patience in a very impatient climate!
