It's a Random Tuesday Two-Fer
(then hold on . . . for some Pumpkin Patch pictures)

Saw these fun little quiz questions in a magazine and thought it would make a good Random Tuesday posting this morning.

So, as is my usual request on Tuesday mornings . . . read through mine, comment if you like, then post with your own contributions to the ramblings. Let us know the answers to this little Two-Fer questionnaire (or link us to your blog, if you've posted them there). It will help us all get to know each other even MORE than we already do (is that a good thing or not?? LOL).

On this morning, here are:

Two Everyday Conveniences I Couldn't Live Without

* My Computer
* My Car

Two Colors

* Orange
* Crimson

Two People I Couldn't Live Without

* Gary
* My girls (okay, that's really three . . . but sue me for cheating!)

Two Things I Want to do Before I Die

* Visit another continent
* Write a mystery novel

Two Important Daily Rituals

* Blogging
* Prayer

Two Things that Make me Laugh

* Sydney taking a bath with her bathing suit on
* Reruns of "Seinfeld"

Two Emotions

* Rejuvenated
* Happy

Share yours with me (and us--our collective little blogging family here!). Can't wait to read em!

------------------
And now, before I leave you . . . a few of my favorite picks from our quick trip to the Pumpkin Patch yesterday afternoon. I checked M and D out of school and we played "hooky" for the afternoon. It was fun doing that! Sydney had never been to the Pumpkin Patch, so this was something completely new to her. And let me just tell you--she had a blast!



















I sure do love my girls! I love them ALL the time, but love them even more when they are getting along and having fun with each other. And on this afternoon, they definitely did that!

So . .

Have a wonderful Tuesday . . .

Happy Halloween . . .

eat lots of candy . . .

love you all!

Lisa L said...

Two For Tuesday, huh? I obviously can't count, I went over several times...

Conveniences - I'm back to basics - electricity & indoor plumbing (anytime the power goes out it is such a pain! I've never been without the indoor plumbing of course, but cannot Imagine how bad that would be, no endless hot bath!) Modern convenience, I have always marveled at the fax machine (huge item at work)

Colors - Blue and purple, maybe, and there's red (I have a lot of pink/red/burgundy in my closet), and blue and red make purple (?) right?

Couldn't live without Leslie & Kids & My MOM

I also would love to write a book (not sure about subject matter)
I hope I get to do this....buy an RV and travel around with Jake's college football team.

Daily Rituals? Hmmmm, Prayer for sure, although some days, it's more like a brief conversation then an actual prayer; working on that.
Checking my bank account online everyday has almost reached ritual status.
Man, I wish exercise was one of my daily rituals...working on that, too.

Leslie makes me laugh, I mean snorting, hiccup, eyes watering laughing, the good kind.
Being with my friend Trudy - always big laughs.
Gary's wallet

So Proud of and Amazed by my kids
At Church, so Grateful for my salvation, you know when the praise and worship just overwhelms you....(this would be on Sunday nights at our Church, Jennifer knows about our Sunday nights)

Sorry, I know you didn't want a manuscript or anything.

Cheryl Wray said...

Miss 1999--You must have been on EARLY this morning. Yay for being first!
Nancy--Thanks!
Jane--Thanks! I am going to check out your list!
NM--Love your list! Before we die . . .we will get together. LOL!
Andy--Happy H to you too!
Dawn--Thanks!! Love your list too! LOVE that you want to meet Mick Jagger. Too funny!
Adrienne--Yep, they are cute!
Lisa--Hey, just thinking about Gary's wallet is making me laugh all over again right now!!! When Jake goes and plays college ball, I want to travel with you!
