Meet Me on Monday

Today I discovered that a blog I like to read, Never Growing Old, initiated a a way for us to get to know one another.  She is the one who calls it “Meet Me on Monday” and, as stated in her blog today, states that she found she “thought of a great way for all of us to ‘meet’ each other” – go check out her posting today to understand better:

Never Growing Old (she especially wants to connect with over-40 bloggers).  I could hate her, she’s so beautiful AND over 40 – but she’s my new hero and someone I set as a standard to point out to myself, “One does not have to let ones self go.”

Basically she posts (and answers) 5 “get to know you” questions.  Here are today’s – and to those of you with blogs, go to her site to grab the info and do likewise! Everyone else, answer the questions in the Comments section – I want to know – I have an Inquiring Mind!


1. What is your favorite sandwich?
2. What is stashed under your bed/mattress?
3. What is your favorite flower?
4. What is your favorite magazine?
5. How often do you weigh yourself?

1 – I pretty much love ALL sandwiches so how can I choose just one?  I love pastrami with swiss cheese on a bagel but it is OFF my food list right now!  Can anyone tell me why?  Anyone?  Bueller?

2 – Alpha Hubby has ensured over the past 15 years that I can’t put ANYTHING under my bed, first with a platform, then with our new sleigh bed (no room). So I guess my answer would be… dust bunnies. Why? Because Alpha Hubby has made sure I can never put anything under the bed, including a MOP, BROOM, or VACUUM!

3 – Favorite flower – again, just one???  I love the smell of warm carnations fresh out of the garden, but my top all time favorite would have to be Snapdragons!  No no, wait – poppys… but what about spider lilies… oh never mind – these are my top three no four… this is WHY I don’t like these questions!




Where was I?  Oh yes, #4 – favorite magazine.  Phew! That’s an easy one – I love MORE Magazine (, a magazine for women over 40 (altho they do need to do some work on representing women OVER 45, 46, 48, 50, etc.)!  I especially like their header…”For women of style and substance!”

And, AT LAST, we get to question #5 – man this has been HARD but here we go, the last question – How often do I weigh myself?  Why do you want to know? I mean, it’s sort of personal between me and my scale, isn’t it?? Oh OK – I try to only do once a week – sometimes it is less, sometimes it is more – but sometimes it is NEVER when I’m afraid to get on because the scale has become my enemy instead of a simple guide to where I am on my journey.  I know, I know – I have issues!!  Maaaajor issues.

I shall go deal with my issues immediately!

  1. I did see this on a couple of blogs earlier this week. What fun idea.
    Your sandwich looks incredible. Mine would have to be a grilled cheese with tomato and onion on homemade bread IF the tomato is homegrown too:)

  2. PS. The sandwich (btw pastrami is my FAV) is off your list cuz you are on the train with me! The train to skinny-ville….. oh and when you see me lying on the tracks can you please stop the train and put me back on..??

  3. Ok, I am so hungry after looking at the sandwich….seriously! If I come visit will you make me one? And we will stay AWAY from the scale…

    Cute idea she has! Fun to get to know people. =)

  4. That IS the best looking sandwich. I’d like a bite right now!

    I don’t weigh when I’m scared because I know how much I’ve been eating! Other than that, when I’m being good, I weigh every morning.
