Name two things that made you smile this week.

(1) My granddaughter called me earlier this evening and told me about winning the Read-a-thon for the entire kindergarten at her school.  Her reward is riding in a limo with the principal and other grade level winners and eating lunch out one day.  She’s is so excited about it!

(2) My daughter told me that when she picked up the girls from school today, she asked if they wanted to invite Grandma Carol to go with them to eat out to celebrate the read-a-thon win.  RT is out of town – so they knew I was eating dinner alone tonight.  They both cheered and yelled “Grandma Carol!” and one of the teachers mentioned how much they LOVED their Grandma Carol.  I’m still smiling over that one!

Fill in the blank: Don’t you hate it when ________?

Don’t you hate it when the dog smells so . . . wet-doggy?  It’s raining here – and that’s the permeating smell in my house.

When you can’t go to sleep, what is your personal remedy to help yourself drift into Lullabyland?

I eat a small bowl of cereal with skim milk.  I read in some publication recently that cereal and milk is a good thing to do for insomnia.  And the rare times I have trouble going to sleep, it sure seems to help me.

Main Course
What is something about which you’ve always wondered but have not yet found a good answer?

Why do I eat more than I need – more than I really want?

What is your favorite pasta dish?

Bowtie pasta with spinach and grilled chicken in a very light alfredo sauce.  Delicious!

    There was an article somewhere (I forget where) that showed there are more neurons devoted to desire than there are to satisfaction. We’re designed to always want more than we need. Back when there wasn’t enough, it might have been a good strategy. Now….

    I loved the stories about your granddaughters. How cute! I was also interested in your insomnia cure. I had not heard that.
    My feast is served, come and dine. grin

    Awww…I want to be somebody’s favorite grandma! Congrats to your read a-thon winner. One of my daughters is a Children’s Librarian so she read to a 4th Grade Class yesterday. She said they gave her celebrity status as she knows so many of the kids in the class from the library.
