Minecraft - Hypixel Skywars

 


Bernie is going to help me mine. I gave him his own enchanted pickaxe. Now I can focus on fighting, and he can mine. 😄

Bernie is everywhere these days! He sure is having one heck of an adventure!

Friday Five - Double

 It's time for Friday Five! I keep missing my Fridays, so you get the last two weeks! 😁


January 15th - Groovy, Rad, Lit

1. Which slang term from your youth, no longer in common use, do you remember fondly? LOL! "Talk to the Hand!" and "What's Your Damage?!"

2. What slang do you still use, ‘though it’s no longer in common use? Um, "Not Even!" I don't hear it much. 

3. Which current (or sorta recent) slang terms do you particularly like? Since I play quite a few online games (with and without my kiddos) and several have chat enabled, I hear slang constantly. I remember a few years back asking my daughter what a certain word meant and she "LOL'd me. Yeah, I have picked up quite a few terms. Lit and Salty are my faves I suppose. 

4. Which slang terms, past or present, do you especially dislike? OMG! I absolutely despise hearing "Baby Mama" or "Baby Daddy".

2. What are you trying to figure out? Trying to figure out how the heck we are going to make it from Texas to Maine - permanently. 

3. Two circles or one continuous motion: how do you write the figure 8? 
Two circles like a snowman. LOL! I remember in school my teacher reprimanding me on drawing my figure 8's from the wrong direction. I still stuck with circles! 😋

5. What’s a good metaphor to describe your first week of 2021? Grabbing the bull by the horn. LOL! Trying to stay positive!

Tuesday 4 - Dreams

 Welcome to Tuesday 4 (the legacy of Toni Taddeo kept in her honor and memory). 
Thanks to Annie for today's four questions!

Welcome back to Tuesday 4 where we remember the wonderful memes of our friend Toni Taddeo by continuing them on in her memory.  I am glad you've stopped by to join in.

This week is another old one from Toni....

My Dreams ~ Try Using Photos!


1.  My dream house is? A colonial house located somewhere around the Tree Streets in Bangor, ME! 😍 We went here for vacation a couple of years ago and absolutely fell in love! We have plans on moving in the near future, and when we do, we will become Texans moving Northeast! I am so looking forward to actually seeing and experiencing all FOUR seasons! So, this could be one dream that comes true!



2.  My dream car is? A 1966 Ford Mustang CHERRY RED convertible! One of these beauts sat in the driveway of some guy up the street from us for years! I got so irritated every time I saw it because he had literally just left it to rot! Code finally nailed him and the car is no longer there. 🙄





3.  My dream vacation is? I would 💛 to go to Scotland and Ireland! We named our daughter after the Isle of Skye and my absolute favorite heroine from my favorite saga - O'Malley Saga by Bertrice Small. My niece spent six months in Ireland studying abroad. She had some wonderful pictures! I would also love to visit two of my dearest friends - Ria and Lynette - that live in South Africa! I am sure they would both give us the best tours!!



4.  My dream life is? Honestly, I don't think I would change my life now. I have the most amazing husband and two awesome kids! They are my LIFE so I guess you could say that this is my dream life. 🥰
