Broken Windows and Frequent Smiles

Questions courtesy of Julie this week; if you'd like to leave some for future use, I'd love it!

1. The Christmas cookies my family made every holiday season while I was growing up had an extra secret ingredient; it was, and still is, a well kept secret!
2. The baseball went right through my window.
3. Right now, I need something to eat. I haven't had anything to eat since a tiny bit of breakfast eaten while I was running out the door.
4. The Yard House is where I went Thursday night; it was not too crowded and the food was delicious.
5. Why does a paper cut hurt so much?
6. All I can think of is dinner tonight.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to punishing my cat with a lot of corporal cuddling, tomorrow my plans include whatever comes to mind that day and Sunday, I want to catch up on my reading!


When someone smiles at you, do you smile back?

Yes, I do. I am naturally a friendly person, and if I catch someone's eye, I usually will smile.


Describe the flooring in your home. Do you have carpet, hardwood, vinyl, a mix?

I have beige carpeting throughout my house. Linoleum covers the floors in my kitchen and bathrooms.


Write a sentence with only 5 words, but all of the words have to start with the first letter of your first name.

We went without warm water.

Main Course

Do you know anyone whose life has been touched by adoption?

Oh yes! Quite a few people, both in my personal and professional lives. I suppose I could even say that my own life has been touched by adoption as a result.


Name 2 blue things.

My tissue box and the flowers on a bell which are both sitting on my desk.


  1. I have so much reading to catch up on I fear I never will!

    Thanks for playing :-)

  2. Ah, the YARD HOUSE! Been to the one in San Diego awhile ago. it was much too crowded for my tastes but it sure had a really great beer selection! :)

    thanks for visiting my blog by the way! I tried to find your post earlier this morning but couldnt' find it, so i'm glad you wrote! And yes, the loaf of bread was delicious. I bake every week at least once or twice a week. I haven't bought store bought bread in a few years now!

  3. Well, no wonder all you can think about is dinner if you haven't eaten since a smidge of breakfast! You need to stop that!

    And I love the corporal cuddling idea!


  4. Great feast! I’m having fun reading everyone’s Salad. Yours is wonderful. How interesting they all are. Mine was name begins with a 'K'.

    It’s wonderful reading all the adoption stories.

    Come on over and feast with me.

  5. Janet - Tell me about it! I feel the same way.

    Marie - The Yard House near us wasn't too busy on a Thursday evening. We went on a Friday night a few weeks ago and I told my husband never again.

    Homemade bread is the best!

    CJ - I still haven't had a bite yet. Hubby's finishing up dinner now so I'll be eating soon. I usually don't skip lunch altogether, but work was so busy today that I didn't have time to even think about food.

    Kim - Thank you for stopping by! I really thought your Salad was clever.

  6. "corporal cuddling" made me smile! :)
    I haven't been reading much this week either so hopefully I can catch up a bit this weekend too.

  7. I liked your answer to to #2, but I hope no one got hurt!

    Enjoy a reading and relaxing weekend, Wendy!

  8. Hey! I love your blog and what a cool meme you have. Harry is the name! I am glad I added you to my blogroll. I hope you catch up on that reading!

  9. Tanabata - I heard the term used at the book festival this past month and had to adopt it into my own vocabulary. :-) Here's to a weekend of reading!

    Florinda - I just made that answer up. I couldn't think of anything else. LOL

    Harry - Thank you for stopping by and commenting! I'll add you to my blog roll too. :-)

  10. Thanks! I am looking for people that enjoy books so much and expand, even though I can't exactly blog every single day.

  11. Ah yes, paper cuts. I've had my fair share of that seeing that my job deals with paper a lot.

    Really enjoyed your feast and I'm glad you love to smile! I definitely love smiling too and wouldn't hesitate to smile back. :D

  12. Daydream - I am not able to blog every day either. Something called life gets in the way. :-)

    Alice - Whenever I load the copier at work, I always manage to get a paper cut. :-(

    I'm glad you are a smiler too!
