Got a good reason For taking the easy way out

Name a sound you like to hear.

The Gulf's surf just off the beach, along with sea gulls laughing....and in the distance, a fog horn! It can be a sad sound, but it's just so calming to me! There's nothing like it.

What is your favorite kind of cheese?

I love cheese, period!! Probably my favorite would be colby or a real sharp yellow cheddar! [not to forget, cottage that stuff. Plain!!]

Do you sleep late on Saturday mornings? Why or why not?

My sleep habits have changed dramatically since retirement. It makes no difference when I get up in the morning! Every morning!! I have no schedule, nor anything that is "I must get up at such and such time of day to get there, or do that". So, let's just say ---I can sleep in, if I want---or get up early for a day trip. It depends.

Main Course
When was the last time you forgot something? What was it, and how long did it take to remember it?

Just the other day. My driver's license! I got a ways down the neighborhood street, and realized I had my cell phone and plastic card for shopping....but the driver's license was still back home!!

Fill in the blank: I notice ____________ when _____________.

I notice small irritating things when I'm riled!!


  1. I love the gulf (ocean) too -- you know that! The fog horn adds a nice touch!

    I wanna be retired when I grow up!!! (heck, I wanna be retired right NOW!) LOL! Ain't happenin' though....

  2. I totally agree with you about the ocean! I lve very near to the gulf and take pleasure in those sounds often!

  3. I too love the sound of the ocean.Would be nice not to have a schedule for a while:)
    Happy Memorial Day.

  4. that sound u just described makes me imagine it like so real...hehehe! it's nice to be retired, isn't it? wish hubby is retired =) great feast....mine's up!

  5. I *need* a schedule!

    Thanks for dropping in. Have a great weekend!

  6. Your appetizer and mine are quite similar. The rest of your feast is great. The color of your blog is superb. By the way, Queso de Bola is a cheese shaped into a ball. You can find it mostly during the yuletide season. This cheese is processed and aged.
    Thanks for the visit.

  7. Love the ocean too! mmmmmmm....

  8. I love..your dessert...It sounds just like me.

    And the ocean..ahh I so miss it

    Happy Friday.

  9. It's terrifying for me when I don't have my Driver Licence :) Happy feasting

  10. Besides the cat purrs I would love the ocean too ! I could listen to that for hours ! and since I am retired it's the same here too I can get up when I want too with the result that at 6am I already jump around in the house (not really, I sit at my computer, lol)

  11. Oh, the sound of the ocean, that's lovely. Great Feast! Thanks for visiting.

  12. Great feast, thanks for visiting mine!

  13. I love the ocean too. It soothes my soul. And, retirement is wonderful!!

  14. Hi Anni,

    Your Appetizer is my kind of sound and along with a fog horn I always liked the distant sound of a train and whistle. I too am retired. Thanks for visiting and I enjoyed my visit here. Have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend. :)

  15. I loved your description of the ocean. I could hear it as I read it. As for no schedule, it must be nice to have no worries about it. It will be a long time before I reach that point, but I'm looking forward to it.

  16. Thanks for visiting my Feast. I loved your Soup. I too, love cheese! I like my cottage cheese with pepper on it, but could totally eat it by the container-full. Thank God that I don't.
    Have a great weekend :)

  17. I am so looking forward to that aspect of retirement!!

    I love your appetizer -- once on a vacation we had a hotel right on the beach. Loved the sound of the surf all the time.

    And I sure can identify with your dessert, too.

  18. Plain cottage cheese! None with fruit in it. It's weird; I like cottage cheese and I like fruit. But when you combine them... BLECH!!!

  19. I love your feast, the ocean is my favorite too! Your dessert made me smile:) Thanks and Have a great weekend.

    Angel Mama ():)

  20. The sound of the ocean is so relaxing. :) And your dessert -- haha I know how you feel. :P

  34. Wow you have quite the following. I added a link for you on my page. Your answers seemed to be well thought out. We agree with most of the apetizer. I hate cottage cheese. Totally agree with your desert.
