Wednesday--Half Way There!

Yep, half the week is gone now.  We get to start the slide to the weekend.  Looking forward to it!
Now let's do some questions:

1. June is National Great Outdoors Month. Have you spent any time appreciating the great outdoors this month? If so where, and if not do you have any plans to enjoy the great outdoors before the calendar turns? 
We were in the great outdoors on Sunday.  We plan to go camping this weekend. Getting out is one of our favorite activities. It's good for the soul.  Especially when we can find a dirt road we haven't been down before.

2. What's a current hot button issue for you? 
School issues.  I don't like the recent trend to teach to a standardized test. There is more concern over teaching to the lowest common denominator but now real creativity because the test scores are more important. Not sure what would fix this, but it still irks me.

3. What's a food or treat that 'disappears like hotcakes' in your house?
There is a snack mix with Cheezits that goes well.  Salt and vinegar chips disappear quickly too. I never have trouble selling chicken, ribs or steak either.

4. How hot is too hot? 
For us anything much over 90.  Thankfully we don't get that hot very often around here.

5. Do you have an artistic outlook on life? What does that mean to you?  
I'm not sure if I do or not.  I can see beauty in most things and I like to take pictures, but don't do it often enough. 

6. What's one question you'd like to ask your father, or one you wish you could ask your father? Wow.  Since I never knew my father (he committed suicide when I was three months old) I think I would just love to have a conversation with him and get to know him as a person. I'd like to know if I'm like him in personality, or if we would clash.
I'd also like to ask him why?

7. Something you learned from your father?
See the above question.  I had step-fathers, but my mom had poor taste in men. I guess one thing from one step father that stuck with me was to never be distracted while driving. Never let the music playing, the other people in the car or what not take your attention away from the act of driving.

8.  Insert your own random thought here. 
I'm ready to go camping.  I know the first trip is always the bug working out one and things will be forgotten and all, but we will be out of town, it will be quiet and nice to just be for a while. And I'll get some reading in...

I think I know that Cheezit snack mix. We can't keep Chex Mix in our house because it magically disappears and everyone feels guilty for eating so much.

Have a wonderful time camping! It's too hot here to go (for me, anyway!)...unless I'm at the beach! :)
