What would you do for a Klondike Bar?

I wasn’t myself today. I felt overwhelmed at work because I was trying to get a large project finished at my desk, which is in the school office in the center of everything. I’m putting together our school directory and it’s full of advertising and is extremely time-consuming. I even snapped at two of our parents.

I didn’t mean to and I hate when I do that. (But better them than the children!)

It wasn’t until I drove up the driveway and arrived home that I began to really feel better. An e-mail from a friend made me really smile. Hi, Alisa! (She noticed I wasn’t myself today).

And tea always helps. I sat outside and chatted with my husband for a bit and then came in to get the camera. And as I walked through the dining room, I remembered that I’d wanted to show you the jar I acquired over the weekend.

I bought it in the gift shop at one of the garden centers nearby. I fell in love with the colors when I first saw it over a month ago. It’s very autumnal.

And all the embellishments are very interesting, as well. I love that old-fashioned writing. And that date. This house had already been standing for a hundred years in 1869. Well, half of it had, anyway.

The new addition was put on in 1810. To find out more about the house (it isn’t much, really), visit the tab on my sidebar, entitled “About the House”.

I do have some questions for you today. I hope you’ll play along.

1. What is your absolute best asset? It would have to be my disposition. Usually it's cheerful.

2. What is the best thing that has happened to you in the past week? I think it's when my husband hugged me on Sunday and told me it was all going to be ok.

3. What do you usually use to mark a place in a book you’re reading? Anything that's lying around and looks like it would work. Right now it's a big feather.

4. How many times do you hit the snooze button in the morning? Once. Sometimes twice. Never thrice. (I really want to rhyme here).

5. What was the last thing you put a postage stamp on? A card I sent to my youngest son. Some day he's going to answer me. Until then, I just keep trying.

alphabet soup said...

1. Best asset - depends on the definition of asset. Is it my home or is it my ability to make things happen?
2. Best thing. Not getting a parking ticket yesterday morning.
2. Marking a place in a book. Sometimes a book mark but equally any handy scrap of paper.
4. Snooze button. I rarely set the alarm nowadays.

5. Postage stamp. The bookshelf. You're right, it is difficult to post a bookshelf, but it was really more about storage than postage!!

Maria said...

1. My friends would say my patience but I'm sure I owe that to Prozac.

2. I picked up my new car!!!!! A silver RAV4!!!!!!

3. Usually another book...anything flat and handy.

4. Uh.....an hour's worth?

5. A water bill for a place I don't live yet because if I don't give Leavenworth county $21.50 every month, to re-register my meter with the county would cost me.........................five thousand dollars. Can you believe that???? Country living is expensive. I've also been told that when my water meter is read for real, the person who is supposed to be reading it just drives his car and makes his kids jump out and read it.....I've been told that water bills can wildly fluctuate because some little kids have a hard time reading those meters.

Okay, enough of that. A new car (I had my old one for 19 years!). Woo hoo!!!!

Kathleen Stoltzfus said...

1. Best asset: My curiosity.
2. Best thing that happened: I bought a new book.
3. What I use to mark a book: One of my business cards for my mixed media sculptures. It has a picture of one of my pieces on it and I like seeing it in print.
4. How many times I hit the snooze: None. When I was a teenager (many, many, many years ago), I had a problem with hitting the snooze too often, so I moved the alarm clock across the room so I'd have to get out of bed to shut it off. To this day, I shut off the alarm and get out of bed.
5. Last thing I put a postage stamp on: Unfortunately, just a bill.

Hilary said...

Wait just one minute.......you SAID Klondike bars!!!!!

Oh, alright then.
1. I would have to say my energy level, which on occasion borders on the scary. Sometimes.
It is getting better with age. Like wine.
2.Best thing in the past week.......coming home from Maine. I loved Maine, but there is nothing like being home. Why is that?
3. OK, you caught me. I fold the page.
4. I NEVER hit the snooze button. I don't even need the alarm. It is light, I wake up.
I told you,the energy thing can be scary.
5. The rug I just sent to California.

Karen said...

1. What is your absolute best asset? My compassion for others...

2. What is the best thing that has happened to you in the past week? Went for a trail ride on a beautiful fall day...

3. What do you usually use to mark a place in a book you’re reading? A felt bookmark with a felt fish on it that my son gave me...

4. How many times do you hit the snooze button in the morning? Have never needed a snooze button.. up at 5am whether I like it or not.

5. What was the last thing you put a postage stamp on? My credit card payment.

TSannie said...

1. My glass is always half full.

2. The same, Kate.

3. I turn the corner of the page down. (Baaad, I know!)

4. Except for this morning, usually at least once.

5. A bill (sigh).

Molly said...

Best asset - my ability to see relationships and patterns or my eyes. they're green/brown hazel.

Best thing...last week - getting my attitude turned around about my new job assignment

Book mark - i don't usually use one unless it's the flap of the dust jacket.

Snooze button - I'm not sure, but past teh point the alarm keeps going off judging from how often i've overslept lately

Last thing...postage stamp - a letter to my niece mailing the stickers I bought for her.

P.S. - I love your vase/jug, too!

Donna S. said...

1. I am super dependable.
2. My grandson "taking care" of me because I didn't feel very well.
3. Seems like a lot of time it is a receipt.
4. Zero-never did.
5. A self-stamped envelope for a give away label "Santa's Elf Hat" on The Weaving Studio blog.

Hilary said...

1) My sense of humour.

2) A fly-by by a Bald Eagle just before we left the cottage to come home.

3) I'll turn down the corner of the page if it's a pocket book but I'll use whatever's handy for a hard covered book. Often it's a feather too, because I keep the ones I find.

4) I very rarely set an alarm and when I do, I never hit the snooze button.

5) A package I sent to a blogger in Pennsylvania about a year or so ago.

These are always fun! :)

Kerri said...

#1. Best Asset: my memory. I can remember almost anything...sometimes that's NOT a good thing!

#2. Best thing that happened in the past week: Two parents came up to me and told me what a wonderful job my 17 year old daughter did speaking at a banquet. I was very proud!

#3. What do I use to mark a place in the book I'm reading: I bend down the page to mark it. I know that's terrible - but I do it.

#4 How many times I hit the snooze button in the am: I NEVER hit the snooze button because I NEVER set the alarm. I am always up early and never have a problem with sleeping late. I can't sleep late even when I want to.

#5. Last thing I put a postage stamp on: A card to my sister who is recovering from surgery.

This was fun!!

Chesapeake Bay Woman said...

1. I don't know.
2. Monday I won an award that got me THREE whole days off whenever I want to take them. That's almost like winning the lottery, because time off is way more valuable than money.
3. One time when I was a kid, I was leaving the library and hurriedly rushed to the librarian's desk to snatch a pencil to circle the page in the book I was reading. There were no words spoken, but the glare I received at having marked up a library book has scarred me for life.
4. I hit the snooze button three times before the alarm even goes off.
5. I don't know.

Not even half a Nutty Buddy aka Drumstick? Brown Mule? Dreamsicle?

Gorgeous vase, warm and wonderful photos.

P.S. TJ said "shittin'" Now that is priceless. (Hey, TJ!)

Char said...

Hope you have a better day tomorrow!

1. my ability to see both sides of a situation and try to keep everyone calm.

2. my nephews hugging me after dinner last night and telling me it was yummy.

3. a friend's moo card that came with a purchase I made.

4. zero

5. an order I shipped today.

JC said...

1. I never give up. Ever. No matter what is thrown at me and a lot has been. I also find things funny. Not always but I try.

2. I felt better. Been having lots of migraines.

3. I use my cat book mark or I bend the corner of the page.

4. I don't. I usually wake up early.

5. A birthday card to my High School friend.

Tami C. said...

1. Best asset: Probably my positive outlook. I always seem to think things will turn out ok.

2. Best thing this week: Being the "uke" (ie person who gets beat up) for a good friend who was testing for black belt in judo. I was proud to help her shine.

3. Bookmark: Either the flap of the dust jacket or one of those subscription cards that always fall out of the magazines.

4. Snooze: Never when I set the alarm.

5. Postage stamp: Letter to a friend or cable bill – can't remember which was last.

Reddirt Woman said...

1. I feel that my mind is my best asset. I often have to figure out ways to create solutions to problems and I have a stubborn streak when it comes to fixin' stuff.

2. My visit with my cousin Carol last Thursday.

3. Sometimes the dust cover, but with paperbacks it's whatever I see first... a folded kleenex, dropout advertising out of the magazines and once in a while, a book marker.

4.I rarely have to set an alarm, but on the occasion when I do..
I usually build in extra time for a snooze button smack or two.
Does that rhyme okay?

5. Bills... And a card to a friend, both yesterday.

Good questions, Kate.

Gabensysmom said...

Fun! Thanks for the blog love!

1. Best Asset-Gut/Natural Instincts...just wish I listened to them more...they're generally right!

3. A post-it note.

4. Never...my kids' bodies are like clockwork and they get up at the same time every morning ;)

5. A client invoice :)

sweetpea_path said...

1. I'd like to think it's my sense of humor...entertains me anyway.

2. A dear friend came to visit, specifically to *help* me plant my first-in-fifteen-years garden...I was overwhelmed and her generosity of spirit, well, it eased all my woes.

3. I always dog-ear the pages :>{{ I have a vast collection of cool & interesting bookmarks that I've gathered over the years due to book guilt - but I rarely ever (mostly never) use them.

4. Don't have one of dem snooze button thingeys.

5. Stamped the bills, just today.
(And I hope you keep trying with the youngest son, CG :>]]

p.s. I like doing these questions...don't know why.

Deb said...

1. really? I guess I'd have to say that I am "the glass is half full" kinda girl.
2. My husband got a job!
3. I have a bevy of book marks..right now I'm using one that I purchased while I was at Volcano National Park on the Big Island.
4. I don't hit the snooze button...ever
5. that would have to be the 50th birthday card made for my sister to celebrate her 50th birthday. this lone card came back return to sender because I combined her address with my address...go figure!

Amy said...

Hi Kate, first of all you have posted your vase before but I forgot to comment- uff..old age..I love the vase and I love the fact that the date is on it, how cool is that! I love something that has been around forever and I love to think about all the things that have happened around that object through the years.
OK to the questions:
1. This has to be my humour. I think if you can laugh about something it can't be that bad- can it??
2. Probably the visit with our Japanese guests and having the opportunity to learn a little about a new culture and make new friends we'll have for a lifetime.
3. I usually bend the corner of the page..
4. If I set my alarm I'm usually awake like five minutes before..never fails..then I just lay and look at the clock, doze, look at the clock, doze..until it actually rings.
5. Must have been the application for my puppies pedigrees.
As for the sex in the video on my blog- did you actually catch that? It went so fast I didn't think anyone would really catch it...well, what can I say, these Scandinavians are not ashamed or shy about anything!!! ;-))

Ellen said...

2. What is the best thing that has happened to you in the past week?
My mom came home from rehab on my dad and husband's birthday

I have a nun book mark that reminds us to "never volunteer for anything dearie, or you'll get the job for life!"

4. How many times do you hit the snooze button in the morning?
Lucky me, I don't need to set an alarm - I can get up when I want!

5. What was the last thing you put a postage stamp on?
I think it was the gas and electric bill!

I love that jug - the colors just scream fall to me.

A New England Life said...

You know Kate, we all have those awful days were you can't help but be crabby, but you also can't help but feel guilty. Maybe it was something in the air because yesterday I was quite grumpy also, and rather snappy! Hopefully we'll both have a better day today!

2. My friend from Texas, Nancy, spent Sunday night with me! She is such a wonderful friend but our visit was far too short. She left Monday afternoon but not before a lovely lunch at the beach : )

3. Like you, whatever I find, but I prefer a bookmark.

4. I HATE the snooze button. HATE IT! Never, ever use it either.

5. It was a bill, naturally. I do hope your son answers you one day, though it could be a bit of a wait! You're a good mom, Kate.

Happy Hump Day!

Sharon

Best thing that happened: that it's okay to change your life's direction...to change your story.
Bookmark: anything I can get my hands on...even though I own a ton of bookmarks!

Postage stamp: a donation to a school's fundraising efforts.

Love the 'vase' and the colors too!

Anke said...

The best thing that happened last week? My girls passing their taekwondo testing with flying colors.
My bookmark? A laminated newspaper article about the going away party that was held for my daughters at their school in Germany.
The snooze button? I never hit it, I wouldn't be able to get up if I did.
Postage stamps? I mailed a condolence card and three birthday cards on Monday.

Gayle said...

Love, LOVE the vase/jar. I have been waiting to see what you did with it. It is perfect!
1. physically, I have good hair. Otherwise, I am a dependable person.
2. I heard from a former student. Lovely.
3. There is a darling little carved door with great old, creeky hinges, it is in my brain. I open the door and put my page number in that tiny cubby hole. :>
4. Never, always wake up so I don't have to hear it.
5. A get well card for someone who had a knee replacement.

Oliag said...

Hope today is a better day Kate!

1. I never say anything bad about people...or rarely anyways...

2. Very similar to yours Kate...my husband hugging me after I returned from a visit to my sister's ...giving me the support I need right now...

3. I usually use one of those cards that fall out of every magazine...Mr O started me doing that...

4. Never....Mr O would get mad if I hit him:)

5. The monthly bills...

Golden West said...

Good health is definitely my best asset.

Spending time with my daughter is always the best thing that happens in the day or week.

I always turn the book upside down, open.

No alarms, and no clocks in the house that actually tell the right time. There's usually a radio on and the news comes on at the top of and half hour with traffic on at 20 minute intervals - that's close enough!

The water bill.

CarlaHR said...

Best asset - patience and understanding.
Best thing that happened this week - had all the windows washed - looks great.
Bookmark - usually one of a collection my husband bought me (or if I can't find one - a post-it)
Snooze button - AH I'm retired no longer need one, but I do have a built in alarm clock and still usually get up before 7.
Postage stamp - insurance claim

Farmchick said...

1. More people comment on my hair so I will say that and my weird sense of humor.

2. My school is on fall break for a full week. No work!

3. I use whatever is lying around.

4. I never hit the snooze.

5. A bill...yuck.

ro said...

My best asset is my giving nature but then again I have great hair.

The best thing that happened in the past week was I spoke with my sister on the phone for 2 hours on Sunday. We don't get to talk very often and 2 hours is such a luxury.

I dog ear pages in books. They are my books and I don't apologize for that. I also write in the margins.

I never hit the snooze button. I get up everyday at 6:00am without an alarm clock.

I put postage stamps on "save the date" cards for my 60th birthday that my kids are throwing for me on January 2nd. Save the date cards are really necessary when one's birthday is at the holiday time.

Donalyn said...

1. My ability to ignore things. Not everyone would agree that this is my best asset, but it's definitely my favorite.

2. Getting a signed copy of "The New American Chef" from the authors - it is such a thrill.

3. If there isn't a dust jacket, I have a few bookmarks I like, but if it's my book and nothing else is handy, I'm a corner folder. This scandalizes my son in law - probably be cause his mom is a teacher and they hate it when students fold over corners. I like the look of a weel-read book myself.

4. I refuse to answer this question.

5. I honestly can't remember - I rarely send anything in the mail. If terrorists take over the internets, we will have everything repossesed or turned off before I can figure out to do bills manually again. And sending up a few prayers for your son :(

Krista said...

1. Best asset - I can talk to anyone

2. Best thing this week - got my 4 year old in kindergarten for next year (after camping out all night to do it!)

3. Book marker - any scrap hangin around

4. Snooze button - lucky enough not to have to use one, hearing my 9 year old thunk down the stairs usually wakes me ; )

5. Postage stamp - on a package I sent to my cousin

Now I want a Klondike bar!

Wild Somerset Child said...

Hello. I'm not playing along because I only just found your blog and am supposed to be cooking the supper. But I had to say - what a stunning blog header pic, and what GORGEOUS jars, particularly full of your Autumn (Fall) gatherings. Ann from UK

Rachel Lynn said...

1. What is your absolute best asset?
That I don't usually let things get to me. I feel that if I can't do anything about it, then there is no sense in worrying. Although, that has been harder for me lately.

2. What is the best thing that has happened to you in the past week?
I got to go and visit my family in Ohio last weekend, and I saw an old friend for her birthday.

3. What do you usually use to mark a place in a book you’re reading?
Whatever I have handy.

Bills, bills, bills

Egghead said...

1. Gosh I would have to say my humor.
2. It has to be talking the funeral home owner into saving my mother in law $500 they wanted to charge her.
3. ANY THING. I have bookmarks but often am too lazy to go find one. Most often it is a card torn out of a magazine. Ha!
4. I don't hit a snooze button because I don't use an alarm to get up. Never have.
5. I put a postage stamp on a sympathy card I mailed to my aunt.

Donna said...

1. Best asset- being able to "pick people up" when they're down with my spirit and zest for life. I'm usually UP and happy.
2.The best thing that happened this week was finding two roses in my VW flower holder as I got ready to leave for work....thank you, my love.
3. My bookmark is usually anything in reach...scrap of paper, paper clip...right now I'm using a leaf!
4. No snooze button .....no alarm clock! We have a rooster....nuff said?
5. The last thing I used a stamp on-a package to my son and his family in California...many stamps!
It held alot of love!!

1. My best asset is my sense of humor - warped at times, but it gets me through most anything.

2. Spending a great day with the hubby - doing yard work, talking about future plans, making memories.

3. A book market one of my kids ade for me eons ago. I'm finding lately the hubby has been reading the same book as I which is only confusing when we both reach for it at the same time!

4. Is there a snooze button...my job is to shake the hubby so that he gets up to take care of that situation - our new clock we can hardly hear. I used to wake up before the alarm went off because it was so obnoxious!

5. A sympathy card for a dear friend was the last item I put a stamp on.

Have a great "rest of the weekend!"
