Sunny's MEME



Can You Fill This Out Without Fibbing? (yes, since Master will be reading it...lol)

1. What was the last thing you put in your mouth?
    a mini Christmas mint cookie
2. Where was your profile picture taken?
    at one of the grand's...all wearing matching frog shirts
3. Worst pain?
    Three years ago when I had the largest gall stone the doc's had ever seen....not the thing I would have chosen to be known for...
4. Favorite place I have traveled?
    Tough one, I have enjoyed all of them...a girl's trip many years ago to England, Scotland and Ireland.
5. How late did you stay up  last night?
     I am usually in bed around 10:00, but last night was the Alabama election, I was up til midnight watching the results.
6. If you could would you move?
    Yes, someplace with no snow and walking distance to the nearest beach.
7. Favorite toy as a child?
    Probably my bicycle....
8. Favorite TV show as  a kid?
    Maybe...Lassie
9. How do you feel right now?
    Content...looking forward to a fun weekend with the grands.
10. When was the last time you cried?
       A few days ago....my favorite uncle ( I had 16 uncles) passed  away....remembering our special memories.
11. Who took your profile picture?
        My daughter
12.  Who is the last person you took a picture with?
        Probably one or more of the grands.
13.  What is your favorite season?
        Fall ... love the foliage, the cooler weather, and usually no snow!
14.   If you could have any career what would you pick?
       Most days I loved the career I had...teaching junior high.
       Being retired is a close second.
15.  Do you think relationships are worth it?
       YES.....cannot imagine the loneliness otherwise.
16. If you could talk to anyone right now, who would it be?
        Hmmm...my parents since question did not specify had to be living.
17.  Are you a good influence?
      LOL....I think much better now that I am older.
18. Does pineapple belong on pizza?
      Yes, if there is also ham and cheese.
 19.   You have the remote what are you watching right now?
        Right now, a Christmas Special...usually something on NetFlix.
20.  Who do you think will play along?
       Hmmm...Baker??
Sunny's question:
Do you open presents on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?
  Both...we get to open one from another member of the family on Christmas Eve, and everything else in the morning.

My question...Do you have a favorite Christmas decoration?
Mine is a floor to ceiling wall hanging of a decorated christmas tree with presents all made from felt.  I made it the year I was pregnant with my oldest daughter....she has already made it know it is hers when I stop decorating.

hugs abby

  1. Oh, your wall hanging is such a cool idea and what a wonderful thing to pass down. Ray has a special one - it was given to him when he was 7 years old. It's simple just a ball with his name on it but it's the memories and it's been on every tree since. Me, a friend made an ornament over forty years ago (velvet frame with lace and a picture of my Sunny Girl inside) and it's been on our tree ever since. Most of the ornaments we gathered over the year have already been passed on to our daughter and I get to see them on her tree now.

    1. Yes, used to have 2 trees, the large fir one we often chopped down..and my 'quirky' frog tree. It is artificial and white...green froggie lights, frog angel topper, all frog ornaments and a frog themed tree skirt..so far the kids are not claiming it...but the grands love it.

  2. So good to hear from you again, Abby! Hooray! I always love to hear about your times with the grandkids.

    I made lots of ornaments when the boys were small. I am most proud of the embroidered ones. The Disney characters were the kid's favorite, but I made Goofy just for Sam.

  4. Hi, Abby!
    Great memeing! I may join in, had no idea this one was floating around as I apparently need to pay more attention to what is happening in blogland. We have several handmade ornaments from the kiddos that I love.

  5. So the last thing you put in your mouth was a Christmas Mint Cookie? Master really must be working long hours then! *wink*

    Today I would also like to move where there is no winter. When I woke up it was -29 C or -20 F for my American friends! Though I do enjoy snow in December- it could all leave Jan. 2nd as far as I am concerned!!!!


    I am sorry to hear about your uncle abby. I only have one left myself and he is my favourite. I am not looking forward to the day I have to say good bye to him.

    Hope you have a Merry Christmas!

  13. Hi Abby! :) It is wonderful to see you around again! I missed you!

    Loved reading your answers! SO cute about the frog shirts, the grands and the photo with you! I love hearing your grandma stories.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your uncle. What a lovely thing that you are doing for his family! That is very special. I'll have to remember that. They will be touched.

    I loved your special Christmas decoration question. I have so many. I answered with three of my favs. Hard to pick. LOVE hearing about the mural that you made. Sounds so neat! Have so much fun with the grands, and your kids! Merry Christmas to you and Master! Many hugs,
