Hodge Podge Wednesday

1. Of all the tools and gadgets you own which do you most enjoy using?

I love my ipod! It is one of my favorite gadgets. I listen to audio books in the car all the time as I drive back and forth to work.

2. When (if ever) is impatience a virtue?

In patience a virtue??? HMM never heard that one I have to think about it a minute. let me go get some coco and think about this one....... I can not think of any reason why impatience would ever be a virtue. When I think of in patience I think of someone who looses control that is not a virtue.

3. What temperature do you keep your thermostat set to in winter? Do you have another way to heat your house besides a furnace of some type?

In SC we kept our thermostat at 68 in the winter and 75 in the summer. I have not been through a winter here yet; so I do not know where we will set it. We had a gas fireplace in SC we used it one year only.

4. Do/did you have a close relationship with any of your grandparents?

I had a very close relationship with my grandmother who just dies this summer. She was the typical Italian grandmother who loved you with food. I only wish I could cook like her. She was a wonderful lady and I miss her terribly. She lived with me for about a year when I mom got sick and moved in with me.

Above is my Nana and my mom.

5. When did you last have a family portrait taken?

The last family portrait of my family was at my son's wedding in 2007. I can't even find it on my computer it is time for another one!

6. What does the word patriotism mean to you?

Patriotism means being proud of your country. It means standing up for God and country. Supporting those who are serving and remembering and honoring those who have served in the past both alive and dead.

7. Do you like to play cards and if so, what's your favorite card game?

When my family gets together we play SPOONS. Both my my husband and kids and with my brothers and sisters. It is a great game that makes us laugh until we run to the bath room.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Well, we put an offer on a house today! If all goes well we have a NEW HOME for Christmas!!!!
