Random is Back!

It's baaaack! The Random Dozen returns to Wednesdays, thanks to Linda (aka Lid or Lidna) at 2nd Cup of Coffee.

1. When was the last time you laughed until you cried?

I don't remember when or what it was about, but I was likely with my girl.

2. If you found $10 today, what would you do with it?

Go out to lunch.

3. Do you volunteer anywhere?

I help out with school orchestra events as needed. I did a ton of school volunteering when the kids were in elementary school (got Volunteer of the Year once), but not as much in these later years. And of course, there's church.

4. What is your favorite summertime veggie or fruit, and how do you eat it?

I have lots of favorites. Fredericksburg peaches, peeled and cut up on my cereal. Strawberries on my cereal or just cut up in a bowl with a smidgen of sugar to make them extra juicy. Watermelon - cut up and eaten after a meal. Grapes by the handfuls. Grilled corn on the cob. Grilled asparagus.

5. Is your social sphere (circle of friends) small, medium or large?

It depends on what level of friendship you mean. Casual friends - large. Intimate friends - small.

6. When was the last time you attended a family or school reunion? How did that go?

Several years ago - my dad's side of the family. It was fun. No drama or anything.

7. When you're feeling blue, what is the best way someone can cheer you up?

A hug, kind words, prayer.

8. Have you taken a vacation this summer?


9. What is the most unnecessary item you carry with you all the time?

A CPR face shield. It's only unnecessary in the sense that I haven't had to use it. But when the opportunity arises, I will be soooo glad I have it!

10. What is the best summer flick you have seen so far?

Haven't been to the movie in forever.

11. Describe a perfect summer day.

Reading a book while sipping an ice-cold Dr Pepper. Grilled hamburgers and corn on the cob for dinner. And homemade vanilla ice cream.

12. Please a share a favorite photo from the summer so far!

Two little girls that worked their way into my girl's heart during her mission trip to Guatemala, holding the Chick-fil-A cow and Mickey Mouse that she gave them.

Head on over to Lid's to read visit other participating bloggers or to link up your own responses!

Maribeth said...

Isn't it great to have the Random Dozen back? Mine is up too!

Jill said...

#4 and #11 made me so hungry!

Jan said...

Fresh fruit is one of the real joys in life.
Love your summer pics.

SusanD said...

I can't get enough fresh fruits and veggies this time of year. I can't believe I left corn on the cob off my list. I just grilled some last night. Great read. Have a super day. Blessings, SusanD

Melli said...

Ohhhhhh I wish I could go to Guatemala and see MY little girl! One day... one day!

I can't believe I didn't say ASPARAGUS! We only eat it almost every night! Sheeeesh... I think I was thinking of "home grown"... LOL! But honestly... summer is ALL about fresh fruits and veggies - isn't it???

Kara With a K said...

Excuse me as I wipe the drool of my keyboard after reading your answer to #4!! Summer has the best fruits and veggies, doesn't it?

And how precious are those pics! What a special thing.

It just feels good to have the random dozen back, doesn't it?

Heidi said...

Great answers. My post is up, but I need to go and link it. :)

SouthLakesMom said...

I'd venture a guess that you'll be the only one who says CPR face shield! That's hilarious!

samurai said...

#3 - "And all additional duties/volunteering as assigned/needed". 8)

#9 - agreed... nice to have, a pain to carry around, but when called upon... priceless... like jumper cables in the trunk. 8)

#11 - You know it! Dr Pepper all the way!

#12 - those stuffed toys will go a long way i am sure.

sara said...

ok, so when we each find $10, we will go to lunch together!!!

Joyce said...

Those are such sweet pictures!

I need to get to the grocery store shortly and I'm now thinking hamburgers and corn on the cob for dinner : )

Kathy said...

Awww, I love your favorite summer pics. So sweet! I've never heard of the CPR face shield, those must be relatively new. Can't be too careful these days, huh?

Thena said...

Your perfect summer day sounds wonderful. I completely forgot about corn on the cob and I put some in the freezer this year.

Susanne said...

I'm right with ya on a perfect summer day!

2nd Cup of Coffee said...

Does the shield protect you from disease should you have to administer mouth-to-mouth?

Thanks for jumpin' back in enthusiastically1

Pam from alertandorientedx4 said...

I KNEW you were going to beat me to be the first linky link! I really heart the CFA cows...2 of mine currently work @ CFA and eldest formerly did..rec'd the scholarship even...Loved the pics and post. And I bet if you ever do have to use the shield, the person you are using it with will NOT think it was unnecessary. Wait. That didn't come out right...not that they need a shield...but grateful that you are there.

Unknown said...

I could not work up the energy for random dozen yesterday.

Sliced peaches on cereal are one of my all time favorites!

I am going to really miss the summer fruit when it's gone!

Great randomness!
