Regarding your fridge, is it organized or a mess inside?

It is organized sometimes!  I clean it out and in a matter of a day or so-sometimes less, it is a total mess. Grrrr…pretty much like everything around here. Frustrating for sure!

Have you ever been a participant in a parade? What did you do?

Sure have-several times! Two times at the North Iowa Band Festival in Mason City-first time I walked with my sister and the bank she worked for.  We handed out candy.  The second time was for the Relay for Life of Cerro Gordo County. Handed out candy again.  We walked for visibility and awareness of our event.  The third time was in the Clear Lake, Iowa 4th of July parade. I walked along with other supporters of a local Democrat running for Iowa’s House of Representatives. I was one end of her sign….actually, I held one end of the banner.  It was a LOT of fun! (Now I want to participate in one again!


How do you stand out from the crowd?

I try not to. Ever. Maybe I do because I am tall! 😉  No?  I do take things that happen to me and turn them into a cause. (There is a future blog!) I used to be a quiet person, but I found my voice and although still shy and basically introverted, I try to use my voice for good.

How many bones, if any, have you broken?

Other than a toe or two, because, who hasn’t? None.  Grateful for that!

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Last week-we went out to the ABATE North Iowa Motorcycle Expo.  Spent two days hanging out with great people.  Chatting with them, meeting new ones, checking out all the vendors. We picked up this amazing cement bench!


Weather was amazing and it was a good good time!

This week-starting the demo for our FINALLY WE ARE DOING IT kitchen remodel.  Still can’t believe it is getting done. I may change my ‘grateful’ for it depending how it goes.  Stay tuned….imagine that is another blog coming, hopefully, ‘soon’!
