Answer Me This: Summer Plans, Park Rides, and Smells

Wahoo!  Kendra at Catholic All Year has reinstated her Answer Me This series!   If you aren't familiar with it, on Sunday Kendra asks random, fun questions about us.  Then the following Sunday she answers the questions, and post the next weeks questions.

Now I am a day behind in getting this posted, but hopefully I'll keep up from here on out.

1. Any big plans for the summer?

My awesome brother is coming home tomorrow!!  I haven't seen him for 2 years.  He has been serving a church mission in Eugene, Oregon.

Nothing else too terribly exciting.

2. What is the strangest thing you believed as a child?


If you put salt on a birds tail you can catch it.
The air in Mexico would smell different than here in the USA.  I was so disappointed the first time I went to Mexico as a kid because it didn't smell different.

3. What is your favorite amusement park ride? (can be a specific one at a specific park or just a type of ride)

Never been to one.  Someday though.  Closest I've been to is the county fair rides.  I would have to say the Ferris Wheel.  (the only other rides I've been on are ones I took the kids on... not exactly that fun for me)

4. What's on your summer reading list?

Radical Homemaking
Breathe: Making Room for Sabbath
Harry Potter books 5-7

5. Have you ever fallen asleep in public?

I am pretty sure I dozed off on the bus the last day in Scottsdale a couple weeks ago.  Luckily it was only a slight doze off, and I didn't miss my stop.

6. What is your favorite smell?

Rain.  Desert rain.  More specifically the rain on the creosote.
Fresh baked bread

Monthly Mission: June Edition


Wow it has been way to long since I did an official monthly mission.  The last several months I've been focusing on health, fitness, and surviving the first trimester of pregnancy.

Yep, baby #3 is due on Thanksgiving Day.

I think this month I am going to focus on less time spent on electronics, and more time spent with family, actually keeping up with housework, the projects I've been putting off, etc.

Basically I am going to focus more time spent in Real Life, and less time in Virtual Life.

And when I do spend time on the computer I am going to make it more worth while.  No more browsing stupid stuff on Pinterest.  No more checking Facebook 10 times in 10 minutes.

Sunday computer time I want to focus on family history and listing to/reading the most recent General Conferences.

Tuesday and Friday I am going to focus on my food blog, Cookies 'n Cows.

The other days' computer time will be spend researching my current project, posting here, quick Facebook checks, etc.  Oh, and I'm limiting the time I get to spend doing all that too... 1 hour.

Let's see if I can break my computer addiction.
