Unconscious Mutterings And More

Here's this past week's Unconscious Mutterings meme. I really enjoy doing this meme for It's fun for me. All you do is answer with the first thought that comes to your mind for each question. Usually one word answers will do. I usually answer tongue in cheek. :-)

I say ... and you think ...?

1. Basketball ~ Not a favorite
2. Traffic ~ Jam
3. Phoenix ~ Bird in flight
4. Tapping ~ On the door
5. Young man ~ Becomes Old Man (LOL)
6. Hulk ~ Big and Green
7. Whiskey ~ Not my cup of coffee!
8. Market ~ Place
9. Career ~ Retired
10. Family ~ Ties

Now hopefully you'll try either on your own blog or answer here in comments.

My Sister-in-Law and Brother
Josie and Joe

Tomorrow my younger brother comes in from San Jose, CA. to visit for a week. It's been three years since he and my SIL were here last. It will be wonderful to see him again. I'm only sorry my sister-in-law couldn't come with him. I'll probably not post again until Friday. So until the next time dear friends, have a day of blessings.

My Love Of Books

I was always an avid reader and used to read 2-3 books a week. Although I've slowed down in my reading, it's still one of my favorite pass times. I found an old question book meme that I had posted a few years back and I see my answer would still be the same.

  When growing up did your family share your love of books? If so, did one person get you into reading? And, do you have any family-oriented memories with books and reading? (Family trips to bookstore, reading the same book as a sibling or parent, etc.)  When I was a child, reading books were the way to go for enjoyment. I had no real influence as I just loved to read and at Christmas and my birthdays my aunts would always give me books. First and foremost was and is The Bible.
I grew up with all the great classics like Dickens, Cristie, Austin, Tolkein, Lewis, Verne, etc.. and I still enjoy reading them today. My father used to love anything science fiction and I remember sneaking his books at night and reading them in my room after everyone was sleeping.

Do you read? What is your favorite book or books? Let me know what books you like to read if you do. And until next time be blessed.

This Week's Reading For Me


Well the first weekend of summer is here and most schools are closed and children are home for the next 2 months and this means many days at the beach or parks for family and friends gatherings. Make sure there are lifeguards stationed at the beaches and lakes. Better safe than sorry.

I hope it's a happy and blessed weekend and the weather holds out. Until the next time dear friends enjoy.
