Monday Quiz About Me


Acting Balanced

It is time for the Monday Quiz About Me sponsored by Acting Balanced.  You can join in and link up by clicking the icon above.  She provides the first 4 questions, we each add a 5th question for our readers to answer.  So,with further ado, here are the Questions:

1. What did you do for Mother’s Day?
2. What was the best advice your mother (or a mother figure) gave you?
3. Are you gardening this year?  What have you/will you plant?
4. What is the first song that comes to mind today?

And don’t forget to add a 5th Question on your own blog so we can answer as we hop around!

1.  What did you do for Mother’s Day?

I spent the day with my daughter.  She took me down to Metamora, Indiana to browse shops and have lunch.  I very much enjoy her company and we always laugh a lot when together.  While there I found a really sweet sounding wind chime for my mom for Mother’s Day.  I knew I’d find something down there for her.

2. What was the best advice your mother (or a mother figure) gave you?

Probably the best piece of advice was the same I heard from my grandpa (her dad), “If you don’t have something nice to say, it isn’t necessary to say anything at all.”  We call it the Thumper Rule now, as that is the advice the little rabbit from Bambi shared that his mother had taught him.  If I kept my mouth shut more often I’d be far better off.

3. Are you gardening this year?  What have you/will you plant?

Not a darn thing.  I have a black thumb. Really, when I walk into a garden center all the plants run the other way screaming, “no, not me not me”.  I can kill a silk plant, honestly.

4. What is the first song that comes to mind today?

Oh that is easy, Miranda Lambert’s, “Mama’s Broken Heart”.  It reminds me of how I was after my marriage ended.

**Bonus Question** Please take time to answer in the comment section!

5.  What one, small thing could you do today to make someone else’s day better today? (now that you mention it, go do it!)

  1. My grandmother used to give the same advice. I love the term “The Thumper Rule”!

    As for something nice to do, I could visit my MIL or pick up my granddaughter from school, for my daughter.

  2. Black thumb? Wow, I just call mine golden brown. (I make better cakes than plants)

    Little thing to makes someone else’s day better… I can call my dad and let him know there’s a good chance we’ll be up to visit next weekend. I’ll probably do that tonight.
