Friendly Fill-Ins on St. Patrick's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Today is also Friendly Fill-Ins day, hosted by 15andmeowing and McGuffy's Reader. We would love for you to join or even put your answers in the comments. It's a fun way to get to know each other better.

1. The oldest item in my home is the HVAC or washer/dryer. We haven't been here three years and we've had to replace the toilet, dishwasher, fridge, stove, hot water heater and more. For these two, it's just a matter of time, but I'm dreading the HVAC. We will need to win the lottery!

2.The oldest item in my refrigerator is mustard. We're really good at keeping our fridge clean and even the mustard isn't very old (for mustard).

3. My family heritage is English and German. On my dad's side, I can trace my roots back to England several hundred years ago. My great-grandmother on my mother's side was from Germany. I can also trace my California roots back to my great-great-grandfather on my dad's side and my grandparents on my mom's side.

4. My favorite family tradition is was Easter. When my grandma was still alive, every Easter we'd go to her house. We'd each bring a food item and after church we had a nice lunch. I miss my grandma terribly even though she passed away over 15 years ago.

Friendly Fill-Ins

1. I hope Man with a Plan, Kevin Can Wait and The Middle get renewed for another season. I know these are just quirky comedies, but I don't watch much prime time TV because of the content of the majority of shows (we set the DVR to record some classic TV and movies). These three are not only funny but family oriented.

2. My first crush was orange. Get it? Orange Crush. The soda? I know. It's a cheat and a lame joke to boot. To be fair, though, I did try Orange Crush before caring about boys.

3. Seeing Annie and Pierrot in the sunshine usually always makes me happy.

4. If I were a super hero, I would be a female version of Superman. I would love to be able to fly!

Thankful Thursday

I'm thankful for this pink pad. It's only about a year or two old, it's definitely not fancy and it's been in the washing machine several times, but I sleep on it every night. I think it's just perfect.

Sunday Selfies

I climbed into the recliner for my selfie.  I like to do a one-shot selfie and then get on with my day.

Pierrot would not wake up for his selfie. The lady kept calling his name to wake him up and he wasn't having it. He wanted to continue to sun himself and have the lady do it for him.

Friendly Fill-Ins

1. My favorite spice or herb is cinnamon. I love snickerdoodle cookies, cinnamon toast, cinnamon on apple sauce and just about anything with cinnamon.

2. An herb/spice I dislike is cumin.  Well, I don't really dislike the taste once it's cooked but the smell while it's cooking reminds me of body odor.

3. Lately, I have been working on a crochet blanket project that will most likely never be complete, especially at the rate I'm going.

4. This winter was mild!
