This week Cee’s Photography Blog is asking 3 questions for Share Your World Challenge.
Here are her questions:
- Every country in the world has lost men and women in some kind of Armed Forces. When does your country celebrate or morn their deaths?
In the United States we mourn the loss of our war heroes on Memorial Day which occurs in May. Unfortunately it has turned into, for the most part, a celebration of consumerism rather than a solemn day of remembrance.
- What is your favorite holiday or holidays?
My favorite holiday of the year is Thanksgiving. It’s all about food, family and tradition.
- How do you celebrate that holiday?
Going home for a huge meal of once-a-year-only foods! When I was a kid the family included grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and the proverbial ‘kid’s table’. Now it is considerably smaller but nonetheless wonderful. Grandmother’s recipes for pecan pie, sweet potato casserole, three bean salad, cornbread dressing, ambrosia, potato salad – my mouth waters at the thought of it!!! There is no shopping or football tradition for us – just food, family and after-dinner board games!!!
I was supposed to post this yesterday, but Saturday was just too impossibly beautiful to not get outside (especially with TS Bonnie on the way!) and enjoy it so, here I am today! (For previous updates go HERE!)
I’ve been on vaca this past week so I hit my mom’s house and the library for some magazines to cut-up:
Some of the letters are well on their way – predictably vowels:
Some letters are very slow getting started – predictably consonants that aren’t often used:
And before I can even begin to peruse my new magazines, I have these color letters to sort and glue!:
No letter & glue stick count this week as I don’t have access to my spread sheet so I’ll include it with the update next weekend. In the meantime, happy sorting and gluing!!!!
I’ll be doing my weekly update on the A to Z Challenge 2017 tomorrow, so I thought I’d share a few more paper collages I’ve done in the past. Enjoy and have a great Friday!!
Ears to you . . .

It’s time for Cee’s Share Your World –
What is your favorite go to beverage? Water, coffee, tea, coke, soda (non-alcoholic)
My go-to drink is Tab – but it isn’t sold by many stores anymore- there’s only one Kroger in my area that sells it. They get it once every two weeks and only 6 six-packs. If I get there too late it’s all gone!
If I can’t get Tab, its Diet Pepsi!
Can you change a car tire?
Before I got my driver’s license, my father taught me how tochange a tire but the one and only time I had a flat tire I enlisted a stranger to change it for me (I paid him $5 for it). Now I have AAA so I wouldn’t even bother trying now (unless extreme circumstances required it.)
Are you a listener or talker?
About 95% of the time I’m a listener. On rare occasions I can run on at the mouth for a little while.
Would you rather have no internet or no cell phone?
Since I’ve become a rabid blogger, I’d rather be without a cell phone than the internet! But then, I’ve always been able to do without a phone of any kind.
I’ve collaged for years – cutting stuff out of magazines has been a sanity-saving technique during stressful times that I’ve used for years. Here are a few collages I’ve done previously.
