Meet me on Monday, twenty-one

Good morning all you bloggers out there. Aren't Mondays great? A fresh start, every week. :)

Last week I told you that my oldest, Amy was sick. During the week Cindy, daughter # 2, caught the same fever-flu. And (finally) yesterday Brianna got it too. With her I'm much more worried, with her history of seizures with high fever. So I'm keeping her home today. She's in my bed now, looking at old Good Housekeeping magazines and drinking chocolate milk. Who said being sick has to be boring, eh?

I'm linking to Java's today with her weekly questions. Hope you enjoy!


1. What is your favorite kind of pie?
This is the best pie ever!
2. Have you ever ran out of gas in the car you were driving?

No, but I've run out of gas on my motorcycle a few times:)
I have a 20-year old bike just like this one, just blue. Now my daughters like to drive around the farm on it:)  
3. How many languages do you speak?

English, German, Low-German, Spanish, and a little bit of portuguese

This is a poster ad on the wall in the supermarket in the neighbor town. They wrote the caption in Low-German.

4. Do you take daily vitamins?

No, but I try to eat fresh fruit from our orchard, when in season.
5. What is your worst eating habit?

Snacking in between meals!!!

Thanks for visiting, feel free to comment, hugs to all, I'm off to feed the zoo...


  1. I had not seen that sign yet. Funny!

  2. Impressive that you speak all those languages! Wie geht es Ihnen? That's just about my extent of German after taking it in high school for two years. Well, maybe a little more than that but not much.

  3. Wie schön, jemanden zu treffen, der Deutsch spricht. Habe Dich über java gefunden. Und auch noch Niederdeutsch! Have to say, this "Meet me on Monday"-Thingie is really fun. Love to hop around and read peoples answers. regards Stefanie from Germany

  4. I speak one language. Good thing you write in it.

  5. That pie looks good! Hope the girls are all feeling better soon. We have had something here too. My hubby was the last to get it and he was sick all weekend. He's out farming and I hope he doesn't over do it and go back down again. It's really cold this morning, but we will have warmer afternoons all week.
    Have a wonderful week.

  6. I like these getting to know you posts on Monday! Will have to check out a few more. Have a great week!

  7. Sorry to hear about the sickness in your house...hope everyone gets well SOON! And without incident! I'm impressed by your languages! Good for you!!!

  8. Impressive that you speak so many languages. I do well to remember English! Of course, I'm in the South and that can be a whole 'nuther ballgame...
