Meet Me on Monday/Monday Quiz About Me

Java is calling this weeks blog hop: A Mother's Day
Meet me on Monday. Hop on over to her place
to play or just read everyone's answers.


1.  For Mother's Day I went to Church, ate lunch at home and took a nap.

2.  What is your favorite dish that your Mom makes? I have several of Mother's recipes which we always requested she make for us on special occasions. Her Chicken Dressing at Thanksgiving and Christmas is a must and we all love Mama's Gooey Coffeecake. She used to make these cinnamon rolls with a creamy pudding surrounding them. They were wonderful and I failed to have her write the recipe down. Most of what she prepared had no written recipe but always turned out just right.

3.  Who are you a "Mom" too? Only my son & daughter....

4.  What did you have for Mother's Day dinner? Orange Chicken and Rice

5.  What is your fondest memory of your Mom? I have so many that it is hard to narrow it down. She had a wonderful sense of humor and we spent much of our time together laughing and talking about a variety of subjects. She loved being surrounded by family and making them happy with her cooking. She was also a wonderful seamstress and could often copy a dress after just a glimpse in a shop window. She always made me feel special and very much loved. I miss her every day.
And now for Heather's weekly Meet and Greet.
Visit her to play along or to meet other participants.
And now for this weeks Questions:

1. Finish this sentence - The best thing about this past weekend was...just hanging out at home.

2. When company drops by unexpectedly what do you serve? I don't really appreciate people dropping in for a meal unannounced. If they come near the dinner hour, I just serve whatever I had planned. On a Friday night, Honey Bear's Brother and Brother's wife dropped by after I had put our pizza in the oven. We just sat down and ate with them. We all managed to have at least two slices. It was a wonderful meal because of the fellowship. 

3. How old were you when you got your first cell phone? 45, I think. It was a bag phone which was plugged into the cigarette lighter. We stopped having a land line phone in 2003.

4. Where do you blog? At home, in my recliner, using my laptop.

And don't forget to add a 5th Question on your own blog so we can answer as we hop around!
5. Who pays the bills at your house?


  1. Oh wow! Sounds like your mum was a talented seamstress. I remember my mum's sewing talents in my post.

    The gooey coffeecake sounds lovely.

  2. Now we know who you got your sewing talents from!

    We had a bag phone, too! :)

    In answer to your question, I pay the bills at our house.

    Have a great Monday!

  3. Your mother was very special indeed. Enjoyed reading your happy memories.


  4. Your mom was blessed to have you for a daughter.

  5. Heather pays the bills but I keep tabs on spending.

  6. So fun to read the memories of your mom.... something about a mothers cooking isn't there....

  7. You and I had the same Mother's Day! But it was a nice one ... the rainy weather was perfect for napping!! Are you going to try and make it so the guild meeting this week? Paula Nadelstern is the guest speaker -- should be a terrific program! :)
