  1. I’m glad you stole it.

    It’s funny — I almost said “The South” on my list too. But like you, it felt geographically inspecific.

    Why are you not feeling well? Did I miss an important post?

  2. How’s your mom doing?

    Also, the “small” town where you grew up? Its population is about four times the population of the town where I grew up. 🙂

  3. That’s what I forgot to do with Anja when you were here that I had planned on doing, sidewalk chalk. Have a whole jar of it waiting for her. Oh well, next time!

  4. You lived in Grand Rapids, MN?! Do you know Bob and Patty Lynch?! One of my best friends is their daughter Jenny. I wouldn’t ask but since I know it’s a dinky town (they actually lived in Nashwauk), I thought I would try!

  5. Clementines? Yikes! I was so disappointed when we moved to the East Coast and couldn’t get mandarins. Clementines taste like my Grama’s pickles, which were always great, but they were supposed to taste like pickles.

    I’m rather curious about #4 in the second section there….do you often make different foods for you?

  6. found your blog through MckMama’s. and i really enjoy it! im so “stealing” the 8 things.. and maybe semi copy off throwback fridays?? if its okay with you :o)
