Got a good reason For taking the easy way out

Here is my Friday Feast for the week.
If you're looking for the Cruise for the day in which I am's the following entry, after this feast!!!

Happy Friday

What are you proud of?
Many things. Mostly my life. I've done nothing extraordinary, but the happiness I've had ALL my life is worth more than I can tell you about here.

What is the best thing you’ve ever won as a prize?

Well, I'm not the type to say my husband! That would mean I'm a bit egotistical and consider him a 'trophy'!! And he's not---he and I are extensions of one another, not prizes.

So, I'd say:
A trip to Disneyland.
It was from a radio program. And early in the morning we always sat around with waking up from a night's sleep. And the two D J's always had questions where you call in to answer.

The question was "Of all the NFL [professional football] players, what woman celebrity did the vast majority wish was their mother?"

After attempting to call several times to get through, I finally did. I was the first to answer correctly! I won a weekend trip [Friday thru Sunday], all expenses paid --to Disneyland in Anaheim.

The answer? Marge Simpson!!!!

[I've also won tickets to operas, money, plays and such...but the Disneyland trip was most memorable]

Name something you do that is a waste of time.
Sit idle. If I'm not doing anything ---even when I AM just sitting---if I don't crochet or read or something...I'm wasting time that has been given to me, and I think being idle is a waste---and I'm known to just sit and dream-so that's wasting precious time that I could be accomplishing something that should be done instead of just sitting.

Main Course
In what year of your life did you change the most?
Well, dang, this is difficult. I'm sure it would be the year I first became a mother. Being married the year prior, I didn't change, nor did my hubby....we continued to work, party, and have a life of two. But, when I became a parent, I changed drastically ---I was now responsible for taking the daughter under my wings and nurture!! I settled down!!!

Where is a place you consider to be very tranquil?
Without a doubt, anywhere I can walk along the sands of a beach with the sea breeze blowing and the salt air drifting along as I watch the waves and listen to the sea gulls laughing!!! It's pure bliss!!!


  1. WOW! a trip to Disneyland???!!! that's awesome! I would've never guessed the answer to that question...i bet u really had a great time at disneyland! great feast!!!

    Great feast. Makes me want to be at the beach about now.

  26. I changed too when I became a mother, actually we both changed and our life too !

    I don't understand that my comment hasn't been published ! I came here first thing in the morning at 6 am ! (while you were sleeping like an angel !) as I said yesterday ! And I was so happy to read your post because it reminded me of the first trip we made to the States in 1971 (!!) I digged out all my souvenirs and we even took a map to be sure from where to where we had this adventure ending in Durango ! I intend to write about this tomorrow as a sort of complement without being one of course ! I am convinced that I am not the only one whose comment has not been published because it's strange and not normal that so few people commented. Glad that you told me because for me it had been published nothing seemed unusual.
    Just tell me that this time you got it ! And compliment again for your post must have been a lot of work ! And now I jump in my bed to join Pookie and Arthur (if they would move, lol !)

  27. Fatabulous Easter colors... I love them. I also love the pink bunny suit... awesome... I want one.

    Your feast was pretty good too, and I know how much you value your hubby, that's cool.

    About video games... you would be surprised what its available now... go check out the new nintendo Wii... it is targeted at everyone, not just gamers :)

  28. Great feast! I am seeing lots of "by the water" for desserts. It is calming! Thanks for stopping by.

    Have great Friday!

  29. I love your dessert ... wish I lived so close to the sea.

    Thanks for sharing your feast and also for popping into my feast.

  30. Great feast! Thanks for visiting my site!

  31. Why does the Marge Simpson thing SO not surprise me???

    You won a trip to Disney? HOW COOL! That's pretty neat! Although... I think the next time I go there... IF I ever go again... I'll take adults!

    I'm sO glad you didn't consider Bud your prize!

  32. Fabulous Feast!
    I enjoyed every morsel.
    Thank you for feasting with me.
    Have a wonderful Weekend!

  33. Wow, what a wonderful prize to win! It must have been memorable... My kids would ask me "mom, is Disneyland really that wonderful?" I'd say "yes it is!" I hope one day before they outgrow being kids i'd be able to afford to bring them! At least to HongKong Disneyland, which is just a 2-hour plane ride from us. But Anaheim would be the best(an 18-hr plane ride from us, hehe)!

  34. Damn. Your tranquil place is WAAAAAAAAAAAY better than mine. I'm jealous. ;)

  35. I so want to win a trip! It seems everyone has won one at one time or another. All I got was a dang GameCube! lol.

  36. I want to go to the sea shore. Our Wal-Mart had seagulls lately. It's south of Pittsburgh, and not even near the Youghiogheny. I'm not sure what that was about!
