A Meme

Being snowed in all week, lack of sunshine, and just doing the same ole same ole, I've been struggling to be motivated to blog. I haven't even been visiting. After receiving an email from my girlfriend Jill telling me to put down my quilt and start blogging I thought I better get a post up right away. For lack of anything interesting, I thought I would post this meme I had saved. I don't remember where I saw this, but here goes.

What kind of soap is in your bathtub right now?
A bottle of Dove liquid soap. My dermatologist told me to use only the bar of Dove, but I prefer the liquid.

Do you have any watermelon in your refrigerator?
Not this time of year.

What would you change about your living room?

I'm considering turning my living room into a sewing room. I never use the living room for anything but reading, so I thought I would install glass doors and move my sewing machine and computer into the living room. There is no rule a living room has to be a living room. Right!

Are the dishes in your dishwasher clean or dirty?

Dirty. I didn't have a full load to turn it on last night after dinner.

What is in your fridge?
Not much since I need to go grocery shopping. Besides the normal condiments, there is milk, juice, leftover salmon patties, salad fixings, butter, etc.

White or wheat bread?

What is on top of your refrigerator?
A wine rack, a casserole carrier and dust bunnies.

What color or design is on your shower curtain?

Cream with embroidered flowers made from ribbon.

How many plants are in your home?
Two, and that reminds me I need to do a post about one of them, because it is almost 20 years old. (I'll save this story for another day).

Is your bed made right now?
No, I don't make the bed until after I shower. I'm still drinking coffee and blogging.

Comet or Soft Scrub?
Both, there are times when Comet is a must.

Is your closet organized?
I recently cleaned my bedroom close and it looks sooooo gooood! As for the other way.

Can you describe your flashlight?
We have one of those that never needs batteries, you just shake it for 20 seconds and it comes on, and a variety from pen lights to spot lights.

Do you drink out of glass or plastic most of the time at home?
Glass, I don't like plastic.

Do you have iced tea made in a pitcher right now?

If you have a garage, is it cluttered?
Is there such a thing as an uncluttered garage???

Curtains or blinds?

How many pillows do you sleep with?
I sleep with two pillows and them must be a combination of feather and down.

Do you sleep with any lights on at night?
Not in the bedroom, but there is a nightlight room freshener in the hall.

How often do you vacuum?
Once a week unless more is needed.

Standard toothbrush or electric?

What color is your toothbrush?

Do you have a welcome mat on your front porch?
I don't have a front porch, just steps. So the answer is no.

What is in your oven right now?

Nothing, but I would like to have some muffins baking.

Is there anything under your bed?
When I was single I kept a baseball bat under the bed and I still keep one there.

Chore you hate doing the most?
I hate to unload the dishwasher.

What retro items are in your home?
Retro or antique? When I think of retro I think of the 50's. For retro I have a telephone stand, and for antiques, I have a washstand, filing cabinet, oil lamps, wall telephone, bed, kettle that was used for cooking over an open fire, and several other items.

Do you have a separate room that you use as an office?
No, my desktop computer is in my bedroom. Another reason for redoing the living room.

How many mirrors are in your home?

Do you have any hidden emergency money around your home?
Absolutely, I always keep mad money.

What color are your walls?
The guest bathroom is blue, my kitchen is yellow and I need to paint the rest of the house which is an off white.

Do you keep any kind of protection weapons in your home?
Hubby has a few guns and of course my baseball bat under my bed.

What does your home smell like right now?
Probably like my dog. I can smell my coffee.

What kind of pickles (if any) are in your refrigerator right now?

What kind of question is this? Bread and butter, dill, sweet and jalapeno.

What color is your favorite Bible?

Ever been on your roof?

Do you own a stereo?

How many TVs do you have?
Three. One in the greatroom, one in the bedroom and one in a cabinet in the kitchen.

How many house phones?


Do you have a housekeeper?

What style do you decorate in?

I don't know what style I use, but it is just things I like.

Do you like solid colors in furniture or prints?
I have both.

Is there a smoke detector in your home?
Yes. There is one in each room.

In case of fire, what are the items in your house which you’d grab if you only could make one quick trip?
Probably my computer because that is where my most important information is stored. My critical documents are in a safety deposit box at the bank.

Hope you enjoyed reading this meme. Right now I'm going to have breakfast then I'll be around visiting.

Have a great weekend.

I've been blogging this morning, but am fixing to go to town and run a few errands. Have a super weekend!

I loved reading your meme. I might have to do that one myself.

I love the idea of a baseball bat under your bed. I laughed when you said that you had it under your bed and now that you are married, you STILL have it. That is so funny! Like your hubby better walk the line or else! Hahahaha!

A very nice article and thank you for taking the time to write it today; you seem to be an interesting person who knows what to say. The weekend is going slow for me, so I just took a shower to get me going. . . . . All I can do is sit here and think about what I really would like to be doing right now.

Suzy said...

So you have a baseball bat under your bed,we have a hammer!
Yes,I think you should turn your livingroom into a multi-purpose room if you're not using it then you will be "LIVING" in it!

That's a cute MEME - I loved reading your answers.

Hope you and yours are fine... I haven't been here for ages (internet died on me weeks ago) and long for an update :-)

Maggie Ann said...

That was great fun to read! I've clicked over from Sandys blog and am glad I did.

Betty said...

Hi Linda,

You did a really good job on this meme. I enjoyed reading your answers. My kitchen is yellow and one of the baths is blue.

I hope your are having a good week so far.

I enjoyed learning more about you and am glad I didn't miss this post. Sorry to be visiting so late, but I'm way behind on everything these day. I use Dove soap and prefer the bar to the liquid ... I seldom make my bed and prefer whole grain bread.
Hugs and blessings,
