Meet Me On Monday

I've just joined a wonderful group called, "Meet Me on Monday" hosted by Java from "Never Growing Old."

This is what 'Meet Me on Monday' is all about:

"Blogging is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, "who is this person!?" I know them...but yet I don't know them! I want to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great way for all of us to "meet" each other!"

Each Sunday, 5 questions are asked and we answer them - sharing a little about ourselves.

Questions and answers:

1. Tomorrow I'm going to _________?

I’ll be spending the day with my husband, daughter, her fiancĂ©, and her future in-laws. We will be going to the city hall for the marriage licence in preparation for Adam and Jen’s destination wedding (Punta Cana, Dominican Republic) in May. Afterwards, we'll be going out to dinner and drinks – an exciting time!

2. Pudding or Jello?

Although I like both pudding and jello, I’d have to pick pudding as my favourite.

3. What book are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett

The author really understands Southern life and has made great efforts to understand what life was like for black women who served white families. She presents sad stories that leave a great glimmer of hope. The book also has wonderfully light-hearted moments, humorous moments, and strikingly funny insights into women and their behaviour.

4. What is the first concert you went to see?

I don’t think I've ever been to a live concert. I preferred the theatre and the first show I saw was, “Les Miserable.”

5. What is your current weather?

The weather is cold with temperature  at 0 degrees celcius/32 degrees fahrenheit.

Until next week, take care and keep smiling!

Please feel free to pop over and join us at, Never Growing Old.


  1. Wow that's cold! I hope you manage to stay nice & warm.

  2. Wedding's are such an exciting time! My oldest son was married in August! I have been wanting to read The Help. I think it will be next on my list!

    Have a great Monday!

  3. Congratulations to your daughter (and to you too!)! :)
    Have a great week ahead!

  4. Great answers! I am not much for concerts, either. I prefer musicals and plays, too. That book sounds interesting!

  5. I loved the movie, The Help. I was pretty young during that time and since my dad was in the Air Force, we families didn't experience the racial tension as much. I think everyone should read the book or see the movie.

    I'm so excited for your family. It sounds like you are going to have a wonderful and fun day. Enjoy!

  6. I enjoyed your answers! Congratulations to your daughter on her upcoming wedding!

  7. I didn't play along this week, but I never eat jello.. It always reminds me of being sick. In fact, when I was a little girl, about six, I once went to a friends house and her brother was eating Jello. I came home and told my mom he must have been sick... She had to explain that jello was actually a real desert... Ah, memories. I host a Friday Fill-In Blog Hop I would love if you could check it out...
