Random Dozen

I'm doing the Random Dozen again.  It's easy and requires minimum thought, something that is good for today--last night involved a couple of margaritas, so I'm on the slow side, but on the plus side the margaritas were out at an actual bar and there were no kids in sight!

So here goes:
1. Do you do garage sales? If so, tell me about one great find. If not, tell me why not.  I most definitely do garage sales.  When I can find the time.  I got to go about two weeks ago and found a booster seat for Bruiser and a Columbia snow suit for Bruiser for a dollar.  For the day I spent less that $10 and got some great stuff.
2. Name the last thing you fixed.  Fixed as in fixed for dinner, or fixed as in mended?  I'll go with mended, I sewed a button on one of Nick's shirts.

3. Name your A) Favorite item of makeup OR B) Favorite tool.  I don't really do lots of makeup(or any really) so I'll have to go with favorite tool.  That would be a screwdriver.  I use one all the time to get those battery compartments open.

4. Which room in your home needs organizing more than any other?  My kitchen.  Things tend to pile up on the counters, especially now the Bruiser likes to mine the lower cabinets for fun things like the spatter screens, pans, bowls, etc.  Things end up on the counter where he can't reach well yet.

5. Which room could use re-decorating?  Our front room.  It has our dining table in it and the walls are a blah cream color and the rug just sucks.  It could really use a makeover.

6. Share something unique about your town.  We have the highest institution of learning in the country.  No really, we are at 7200 feet and we have a four year university.  Highest elevation for a four year university in the country.

7. If you could send a one-sentence message to your great-grandchild, what would it be?  Make time for the little things.

8. Do you Facebook?  Yes, but not religiously.  I like to check it but keep it mostly separate from my blog.

9. Describe your favorite shoes.  They would be my Keens.  A trail shoe and one of the most comfortable shoes I own for long wear and lots of walking.

10. Do you listen to more talk radio or more music radio? What kind of station is it?  Music radio.  We don't really get much talk radio here in the boonies.  My favorite in country, but I'll listen to rock too.

11. How far would you travel for a really good (favorite) meal?  I have to travel about an hour for a decent seafood meal. And about the same for a good steak dinner.  My town is lacking in both departments.  However, if you want a good Mexican meal you have about 5-6 different choices right here in town.

12. If you were totally honest with yourself (and us) what should you probably be doing right now instead of blogging?  Napping, Bruiser is down and Turbo is at school.  Just wanted to get this knocked out before resting a bit.
So go link with Linda and answer the Random Dozen for yourself.


  1. LG had some great Keen sandals over the summer. I wanted a pair, but can't justify the price :(

  2. Love your blog and its title! :) Very cool that you're a geologist. Hope you got that nap in!

  3. Very interesting. I have 15 more minutes to blog. It is what I am to be doing, imagine/ Then I'm off to exercise.

  4. My stuff in the kitchen always piles up. I go on Facebook to check in on family. Loved your answers. Enjoy the rest of your week.

  5. Love your blog! :)

    I'm totally with you on the kitchen thing. It's strange, though--for some reason, if my kitchen is clean I feel like my whole home is clean, even though it's totally not true. (Although in a small one-bedroom apartment I guess the kitchen takes up a significant part of the home!)

    Following you now!

  6. One counter in my kitchen is the catchall and it drives me insane!

  7. Same with my kitchen. I have the back counter which I throw everything on when I get home, mail, purse, lunch bag, etc. I would love to finally put some order in that area since it just makes everything look unfinished.

  8. I am a clutterer, but Hub is a neatnik. We have come to an agreement (he rather reluctantly I will admit) - my desk is mine, and if it gets cluttere, it's okay. Although I find I'm less tolerant of clutter now than I used to be. Some of my clutter is because if it gets put away, it gets forgotten.

  9. highest institute of learning, LOL! I too would be napping.


I love to get comments! They make my heart go pitter-pat! Go on comment--I'll do my best to go give your blog some love too!
