Interview & Cocoa

Edit – I was suppose to wait for Ruth to give me five questions, so if YOU want to be interviewed, let me know.  DON’T use the questions below or the ones Ruth sends me!

Ruth had this on her blog, and I thought it was neat!

1) What is your favorite guilty pleasure?

Yarn.  Buying yarn makes me happy, as silly as that sounds.  And at this point, it does make me feel a bit guilty, because I have a ridiculous stash.

2) Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

Here.  The inlaws will be retired by then, and probably the uncle too.  Maybe I’ll have published a novel by then.  Maybe we’ll be able to travel more, get to the beach more…

3) If you found a $10 bill in your purse, what would you do with it?

Extra?  Not part of my weekly cash for lunch and such?  It would go in my mad money.  I squirrel it away for rainy days, surprise gifts for the Knight, etc.  (Gee, have I lost my ability to dream?  The last two questions sure got predictable, bland answers…)

4) What is one thing you wanted to be sure your boys knew before they left(leave) your home?

The Page has left our home (for his mother’s), but we worked hard to instill good manners, a love for reading, a sense of self-worth, and a good work ethic.

There are several, but at the top of the list is Alison.  I missed my chance at Stitches East, and I’d promised to show her Fredfoot in person.

Now, if you decide to interview yourself, please let me know ‘cuz I’d love to read it.

Next, we have the weekly topic for the Cocoa Swap.

Please share how you would make your Hot Cocoa.

Again, a boring answer.  I either boil some water or heat some milk, and then mix in cocoa (depending on the directions and the time I have to spend making said cup).  If I’m so inclined, I’ll add some crushed peppermint to the top, and away I go.  The Knight is a bit more original; he likes to add about twice as much cocoa powder/mix as recommended, and then adds real cream and/or mini marshmallows on top.  If I’m garnishing his cup, I’ll add a sprinkle of cocoa powder just to make it purdy.

In other news, I’ve settled on a “buddy” for my swap pal, started the Action vest, threw the funeral socks back in the car, got a new dishwasher, and remembered I have a cocktail party tomorrow night.  How’s your week starting off?

steelerbannerpartyanimalOh – and go Steelers!  My Daddy was born in Steel Town, so I’ve always been rather partial to the Steelers.  Sissy is pulling for them because of Mr. Bettis.  Gretchen is pulling for them because she’s excited about whatever Sissy and I are excited about.  The Knight couldn’t care less, but we love him anyway.

    I like buying yarn too. Yes, you are getting predictable and old (just sayin’).

    I drank cocoa yesterday. The Princess broke my insta hot when she was home for Thanksgiving. So, I boil water in the micro (don’t have a kettle), use between the normal amount and twice of the cocoa powder, add marshmallows and creme de cocoa! Yummy 🙂

    Finish up those socks – the end of January is coming 🙂 You sound better today. The weekend, while not what you planned, was good for you. g

  2. Good to hear that dishwasher was purchased, and hopefully installed? I wondered what you had done with the question about “the boys”! LOL…

    I like to buy yarn too:)

    Mr. Bettis is very pleased to have fans:) Go Steelers Go! He didn’t cheer but he did pace and he wanted someone to go outside to throw the ball. I guess he thought he should have a bit of the action.

    I wouldn’t say your cocoa answer is boring, I would say simple and simple is very good, that is what I do everyday at work.
