MeMe Monday

It's been a while since I've done MeMe Monday, but I saw this one over at hand eye crafts and thought I'd grab it too.

What are your current obsessions?
Getting the house decluttered and reorganized seems to be my obsession de jour.  I'm sure that could change at any time - I tend to be fickle about my obsessions.

Which item from your wardrobe do you wear the most often?
My flannel sock monkey jammies. Although you'll be glad to know I never wear them out in public.

What’s for dinner?
Tonight we are going to try Creamy Beef Over Noodles from my Make It Fast, Cook It Slow cookbook.  I smells so awesome right now, I can't wait for dinner.

What is your greatest fear at the moment?
Well, ever since the roofer came on Friday and found that the rain coming through the ceiling was not a roof problem but caused by our chimney falling apart . . .  . my biggest fear is how much a mason will charge us to fix the chimney.  But long term greatest fear has been and always will be diabetes complications.

What are you listening to?
Silence . . . and loving it.

If you were a god/goddess what would you be?
Well, I took this quiz and here is what I got . . .
You Are the Greek Goddess Demeter
You are an Earth Mother, provider of delicious food and beautiful children. You prefer the company of the young, but you have a decided wanderlust, which makes being tied down lead to periods of depression. You are conscientious, law-abiding, and spiritual.
Hmmmm, I do like to cook.

What are your guilty pleasures?
Oh gosh, are you really going to make me admit it?  Okay, okay, I've been kind of watching ABCFamily reruns of The Gilmore Girls.  I know, I know, but there is knitting in some of the episodes.  And they always order out or eat hamburgers and pizza and candy and they still stay so stick skinny and have gorgeous clothes.  And Star's Hollow looks like a lovely place to live.  I want to go to there.

Who or what makes you laugh?
My husband.  My cat.  My friends.

What is your favorite spring thing to do?
Clean.  And start hanging laundry outside on the clothesline again.  And take walks outside.  Oh, and clean.

Where are you planning to travel next?
We're hoping to go to Cape May for our anniversary.

What is the best thing you ate or drank lately?

Who was your first ever crush?
A boy in kindergarten named Eric. He had black hair and light blue eyes.

What is you favorite ever film?
Gone with the Wind

What is the biggest life lesson you’ve learned from your kids?
Don't have kids, but can I count anything I've learned from my cat? In that case, never underestimate the value of napping.

What song can’t you get out of your head?
Usually the last song I listened to. Which today is a silly song called Ikea. It's catchy . . . sorry about that.

What book do you know you should read but refuse to?
Hmmmm, tough question. Pete reads a lot of non-fiction about American History. I should probably read more of that too . . . but I find is so boring.

What is your physical abnormality/abnormal physical ability?
I'm mega-klutzy. And I have a dead pancreas. But I can pop my jaw on cue!!

What is your favorite color?
It changes all the time, but I'm very into green at the moment.

Love a slow cooker! I "cooked" in one yesterday. I am totally guilty of getting sucked in to Gilmore Girls too.

I love slowcooker foods, why have I not used mine lately?? Anyhow, I'm on season 2 of Gilmore girls and I'd love to live in Stars Hollow..I'd love to walk wherever I needed to instead of the traffic. Hope the repair job isn't too bad!

I should read fiction again, but I dont need the drama.

Happy GREEEN day to you tomorrow.

Isn't it funny how clearly we all remember our first crushes?

I've been watching Gilmore Girls too. Almost every character annoys me in some way, except Luke. Heh.

I love to clean too, though you might not know that from the current state of my house. The gray weather kills all motivation, but with the sun today, I'm starting to perk back up like a wilted flower after the great storm of the weekend! It sounds like you have made a phenomenal start on your spring cleaning!

Hurray for someone else who likes silence! It makes me feel peaceful. I think we all need more of the quiet in this crazy world.

don't have abcfamily at my place, but I wish I did so I could watch Gilmore Girls again--last week my husband had to have same-day surgery and while that was going on I flipped through the channels in his hospital room and happened upon it! It was a great distraction (well, that and the knitting I brought with me)
