Random Questions

Sometimes I just don't have anything to blog about, and people ask me when I'm doing another post. I find it easier to read about other people's happiness and stressors than talk about my own. So much of what goes on in my life can't be blogged about, you know - work stuff, friends going through painful, heartbreaking loss, and my family prefers not to be the subject of my blog. I don't know why, I'm great at making them look much sillier than they really are.

Anyway, I like to follow other blogs, and sometimes join in a blog hop. This means I answer the questions someone else posts, and link back to her page on here. When you go to the link, you will find many other interesting blogs linked up. Hopefully. If I do it right.

Everyday Ruralty

So here goes:

  1. If you could instantly play a musical instrument, which one would it be?
  2. Do you have a fireplace, wood-stove, or pellet-stove?
  3. What's your favorite addition to brownies?
  4. Do you use much bottled water?
  5. How much did you weight as a newborn?
1. If I could pick one, I think it would be to play the piano better. I already play some, mostly I play church hymns because that's what I grew up playing in church. My piano teacher was at our elementary school, and I had a 30 minute session with her every week for a couple of years. She used the typical beginner books, but graduated me into the hymnal. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but knowing the hymns made it come easy to me, and now I don't read music as well as I should be able to. Maybe I'll work on that. In the meantime, I started learning the mandolin last year, and realized yesterday that I've been so lazy with practice I can't remember much of anything about it. Working on that too.

2. We have two electric fireplaces and an electric one in the bedroom. What the heck is a pellet stove? I grew up with real wood burning fireplaces, but that's too much work. Building a fire in the mornings was worse than having to make coffee in the mornings. We are so spoiled!

3. I like my brownies warm and plain.

4. I drink bottled water once or twice a week. It's a battle for me to drink water at all. There's water in coffee, right?

5. I think I weighed 7 pounds, 3 ounces. Why? I think a more important number that day was the temperature. It was in the 90's and the hospital had no air condition. Poor mom!

I also would love to play the piano instantly. I can't play at all except 2 little songs with one hand.

Have a blessed rest of your week.
