Making good Mondays is like making coffee -


The week is before us - like the coffee pot - waiting to brew. Making it good is a matter of choice, luck, creativity, patience and acceptance of the outcome.

Currently at Making Good Mondays

A meme on me


















Getting to the meme will take a bit of explanation -

As I stopped by at "Margaret's Wanderings" I found out some wonderful things I did not know about her. I often stop by her blog because we are both trained as social workers and because she is a very good writer. I have not found many social-worker bloggers, let alone those who can write!
Margaret revealed some very interesting additional things about herself. She ended her post, "eight-revelations," with this:

And it is now tagging time. I tag lacithecat, wendy, myrthe, and carol gee. I am looking forward to learning something new about my fellow bloggers!!!
She left a tagging comment at my blog that said:

Carol,
I would like to tag you and request that you share 8 new things about yourself that your blog fans may not be aware of. Are you in the mood to share?
Looking forward to learning more about you,
M
This was my reply, which I am reproducing here as today's post:

My goodness, Margaret, thanks. I'll give it a try - and it will be 8+, if that's OK.
Some of these things my "fans" have probably already inferred:
  1. I have six grandchildren, some adults. My mom - age 91 - has 9 great-grandchildren.

  2. We celebrated our Golden Wedding Anniversary. I do not color my mouse-brown hair.

  3. I drive an older Chevy Prism that gets 30+ mpg. I don't speed, but I am right up there.

  4. I got a Master's in (Clinical) Social Work at age 52. I counseled mostly women before retirement.

  5. I have suffered from periodic insomnia all my adult life. I watch TV when wakeful.

  6. I keep an electronic personal journal. I have written in a diary since I was 8 years old.

  7. I am a photographer who does not own a digital camera. My screen saver is "WebShots."

  8. All my home's drawers, cabinets and closets are too full, though they are mostly orderly. I am a bit obsessive, but I do not dust very often.
The bloggers I am tagging are:

My topical post today at South by Southwest and The Reaction is about domestic surveillance.
