Meet me on Monday, for the ninth time

Good Monday, everyone! I'll have to start "Meet me on Monday" on Sunday next time. When I checked in on Java's blog this morning, there were already 27 entries!:) So lets get right to it!


1. Do you watch any Soap Operas?

Nope, we get Brazilian TV here, and it’s not worth watching. I am somewhat addicted to American sitcoms. Can’t wait for the fall season to begin; I can download some of them. (I love Castle!)

2. What appliance is used the most in your house?

My stove, every day, 3-5 times. And my washing machine, almost every day. (Um, do you count a laptop as an appliance?)

3. Do you wear make-up every day?

No, only if I leave the house to go into town or to visit a friend.

4. What is your worst pet-peeve?

I have a few:

I can’t stand someone (or myself) being late.

I can’t stand not being prepared (band-aids, hand lotion, safety pin in my handbag at all times) (Water bottle, picnic quilt and toilet paper in the car at all times) (written notes, if I have to speak in front of a bunch of people) you get the point.

I can’t stand it when the radio announcers pronounce the words wrong. (We have a German radio station, but when they can’t even say New York the right way, it gives me the heebie-jeebies){Heebie-jeebies (idiom), used to describe a feeling of anxiety, apprehension, depression or illness.}

I’ll stop now…. No, just wait; I have another one, just one word: CORNSTARCH!

5. What is your favorite lunch meat?

Smoked ham!

I went to a concert in town last night with two of my friends and my oldest daughter, Amy. Anja Lehmann is in Paraguay and was giving concerts in the churches in our area. She has a beautiful voice, face and personality. I really enjoyed it! You can check out her website here.
This week is dedicated to cleaning up big bags full of clothing, stuffed animals and a mish-mash of dishes/cutlery/pots and pans, to sell at a garage/yard sale on Friday and Saturday. So, if you are in our area, your welcome to drop in at my parents house in Filadelfia. If you want more info, just call me or write a comment. Thanks for meeting me again this week, wish you all a good one and God bless each one of you!


  1. Hi
    thanks for stopping by my blog. am following u now, looking forward to catching up with some of your delicious looking recipies.. so love this social hopping pasttime. I say is becoming fulltime :)

    I forgot the laptop being used quite a bit during the day too.


  2. Stopped over from Meet Me On Monday. I agree with your pet-peeves, the late one and not being prepared "just in case" are right in my top 10. Have a wonderful day.

  3. "Corn Startch" is two words :)

    Totally with you on people being late! I'm always 10-15 minutes early for everything, and we've taught our children to do the same. Have some relatives though that can be up to 20 minutes late for everything. You get used to it.

  4. Well - it would help if I could spell!
    Corn Starch! (much better)

  5. I think a pet-peeve could be a sister who lurks on your blog, but never takes the time to comment! Sorry!
    Looking forward to and dreading at the same time the garage sale! Back to de-cluttering!
    Love you, C

  6. I don't like it when people are late, especially me, and I love words like "heebie jeebies"!

    Oh, and last time I visited here I told you about something that you'd want to read on my blog (an book excerpt about babies and Christmas...)

    Check it out, (please)

  7. Hi, I'm your newest follower. Following via Google Friend Connect. Found you through the Blog Hop. Hope you can stop by :)

  8. Hi,
    Thank-you for stopping by my blog.
    I am stopping by from Meet Me on Monday.
    Have a good week.

  9. Hey, Sweetie. I'm leaving you an award at Weezer's Haven.

    Love the pictures you put with your answers.

  10. I hate the feel of corn starch too!:) Almost never make chipa because of that, or my friend has to make me the dough if we are having a bake day together.
    I myself always cringe if words are spoken badly in the radio!


Please leave your name when you comment! I'd love to hear from you!
