A Peek Into Me



Share Your World – June 6, 2017


What’s your strongest sense?

I think I’ll go with taste.  I wear glasses, hubby tells me my hearing is going, thanks to the diabetes monster my fingertips are tingly and a quarter of the year my nose is stuffy.  Yup…it’s taste.   (and yes, that is a lunch of cheddar cheese, honeydew melon and dates…on a paper plate because I hate doing dishes.)




Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey)

When I was young I was Bashful.  When my boys were young I was Doc.  Part of the year I’m Sneezy.  Since my hair has turned grey I am a combination of Sleepy, Dopey and Grumpy.   However…..I spend most of my time as Happy.


If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what age would that be?

I would like my 61 year old brain put into my 20 year old body.

Photo Challenge: Heritage

Passing down my Oma’s (grandmother’s) dishes and recipes.

Wedding photo of my grandmother’s sister.  The wedding couple are seated in the middle.  My great grandparents are seated on the right and left.  My grandmother is standing behind the groom and my mother is the taller of the 2 children.

The dishes are hand made and belonged to my grandmother.

The food I learned to cook from my mother who learned from her mother who learned from her mother.

The crepes we always called German pancakes and we always ate them with applesauce.  The special Sunday dinner is Sauerbraten, always served with potato dumplings and rotkraut.
