The End of Another Week


five question friday


It’s Friday, so you know what that means.  Well, okay.  Usually it means I’m busy doing something and forgetting about Five Question Friday.  But not today, peeps, not today.  Nope, today I’m getting a jump on things and posting this topic while it’s still timely. 

If you want to play along, there’s a linky at the bottom so you can join the blog hop.  As always, thanks to Mama M over at My Little Life for providing the prompts.  Just click the picture icon above if you’d like to visit (which I recommend). 

Now, here we go . . .

1. Would you grow your hair out to donate it?

I’ve got nothing against the idea of donating my hair, or even growing it out for the express purpose of having it cut for a cause.  Sadly, though, I do have something against actually growing out my hair.  When I was young, I wore my hair long.  Looking back, I’m not sure how I put up with that.  These days, I just don’t have the patience.

2. What song makes you think of summer?

Gosh, there are a lot, though I think they might show my age.  Just about anything from the Beach Boys, probably.  “Beach Baby”, by some people called The First Class. (If they had other hits, I don’t know them.)  “Under the Boardwalk”, by The Drifters.  And, more recently, “Summer Nights”, by Rascal Flatts and “Summertime”, by Kenny Chesney. 

But, John Fogerty holds the top spot, with “Centerfield”.  A peppy tune, all about America’s pastime . . . does it get any more summer than that?


3. Are you a flip flops or sandals kind of person?

If I had to pick, I’d say that I prefer sandals, as long as they slide over my toes.  But of the two, it’s a single pair of flip flops that I wear most often during the summer; they sit right by my door, ready for when I need to hop outside for something.  However, the truth is, I don’t really like either of them, and I’d rather be in my sneakers.

4. Favorite summer treat (ie ice cream, snow cones, etc)?

I’m not picky.  I like milkshakes, snow cones, hot fudge sundaes, slushes from Sonic.  I really like homemade ice cream, but rarely get to have any.  And, as I said just yesterday, I do love some summertime melon.

5. Do you do something special for the father of your children on Fathers day?

I get him a gift, and try to make sure the day is hassle free.

So, that’s it for 5QF this week.  Go ahead and leave your responses in the comments, or, if you’re playing along on your own blog, do be sure to add to the hop below.  Happy Friday!


  1. 1. I was going to do this until my "ma" told me that people actually prefer synthetic hair as it isnt as heavy as natural hair wigs. She nursed her long time friend until she died of cancer a few years back.

    2. I like your song choices

    3. I prefer my sneakers too especially since having really bad sciatica last year I feel I need their support

    4. sounds yummy but cold which is fine in Summer but its winter here!! LOL youre making me cold just thinking about it LOL

    5. nope were separated

    1. Sorry about making you shiver! When I finally get around to planning my bucket list trip to Australia, I'll have to remember to do it in our winter time. ;-) (Though, I hear summers down there can be miserably hot; do you have spring or fall, or seasons just change really quickly from cold to hot?)

      And that's interesting about the hair thing; I would've thought real would be preferable, but I know my hair is thick, and when it gets too long, it is *really* heavy, so I can definitely see that.

    2. when you plan that trip make sure you include New Zealand!!

      we do have Spring and Autumn
