friday's feast #141 (#13)

How fast can you type?

I don't know the number but I have been known to type fast. :)

What is your favorite online game?

I don't play online games much anymore. I used to. Now my online time is spent reading blogs. Imagine that!

On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 as highest), how intelligent do you think you are?

Wow. What kind of question is that? I don't know. Intelligent enough for this leg of my life journey, I guess.

Main Course
Name three of your best teachers from your school years.

I've been blessed with many good teachers over the years. If I had to pick only three, they would be:
1 - Mrs. Goodwin. She was my 6th and 8th grade social studies teacher. She introduced me to the interesting side of history, but more than that, she taught me boundaries. She also made sure every one of her students knew that she cared what happened to them. A lot of the kids didn't know that someone cared before then.
2 - Mrs. Flynn. She was my French teacher for a couple years in elementary school and then when I went to high school, she was there. She was my French teacher all four years of high school. I thought she was really cool. I wish I could find her to tell her thank you for helping me understand that the world goes beyond just our city or our state.
3 - Mrs. Bolin. She was my 4th and 5th grade Language Arts teacher. She also was fluent in French. We went to her house once for an overnight. She is the first teacher I had that I realized she was a "real" person with a life outside of school. Interesting.

What are your plans for this upcoming weekend?

My husband seems to think we are landscaping the yard. That would make it look nicer but I dread yard work. I feel like it's such hard work for such little gain. I mean you work so hard and those pesky weeds come back. But I digress...We have my daughter this weekend so maybe we can do something fun with her. I also hope to have our usual "date night" on Saturday night with my husband. Sunday I am going bridesmaid dress shopping with my soon-to-be sister-in-law.

It's been a while since you've dropped by my blog. I've missed your sweet comments! :-)

Hope you have a wonderful and blessed weekend, in spite of the yard work. ;-)

I'll bet you could count the number of bloggers out here who still play on-line games on one hand. LOL Are you kidding me? There's no way I could do that - I'm never going to catch up as it is.

And I hear you about the yardwork. I'm still recovering. Actually, I've gone outside several times today just to stand there and admire all the work we did this weekend. But I'm bone tired. It's exhausting work, isn't it? I hope you did something fun with your daughter instead.

Just keep in mind all those poor folks that have no yard.....

When I was a pup, all we had was gravel, no fancy lawn, and the dog played there too! you had to watch where you rolled! When we won that Jeopardy money, we invested in a concrete slab. We built a little shrine in one corner to pay due and proper Homage (it's french-silent H) to Alex Trebek.
