Wednesday Medley - 2/1/19

The Wednesday Medley is hosted by Terri.  Pop over to her site to see how it works and who's taking part.



National Science Fiction Day is celebrated annually on January 2nd by millions of science fiction fans across the United States.  The date of January 2 was chosen for National Science Fiction Day as it corresponds with the birth date of famed science fiction writer Isaac Asimov.   National Science Fiction Day is recognised by the Hallmark Channel and the Scholastic Corporation. 
Watch some classic science fiction t.v. shows or movies.  Start reading a science fiction novel. Use #ScienceFictionDay to post on social media.
1.  Will you observe National Science Fiction Day as recommended above?  Do you even like science fiction?  
I don't totally dislike it - I used to watch X Files and Dr Who and I have read a few books that would class as Science Fiction but I definitely won't be observing the day!
2.  Have you chosen a "word" for 2019?  Many people do. THIS QUIZ might help you find your word!!
Well I did the Quiz and it seems my theme for the year should be Empowerment.  Fortunately I take these things with a pinch of salt but of the suggested list of words Focus did leap out at me.  I definitely could do with being more focused on things.
3.  Did you stay up to see the new year in?  Are you happy or sad to see 2018 go?  
I did stay up but just watching TV - no late night parties here.  2018 was a good year for us - Nathan continues to thrive and he was joined by two more Grandsons, Noah and Rory during the year.
4.  I really enjoy the Tournament of Roses parade on New Year's Day but rarely get to sit and enjoy the entire parade because I am cooking.  Did you watch the parade?  Did you cook/eat the traditional foods (pork, black-eyed peas, kraut, greens...) to begin the new year?
No and No.  With just the two of us here it was just another day.
5.  I have to ask... Resolutions.  Did you make any or set some new goals for 2019?  Or do you even think about it?
I have aims for the year but not resolutions as such.  You can see more about this here.
6.  Tell us something random about your week
It's a random week - Nathan & his Mummies are on holiday so I have no Grandsitting duties this week (or next week) so much of what happens will be random!  (And restful lol)
I am catsitting however:  Say hello to Lady who is a bit shy!
I hope you all have a good Wednesday and thanks to Terri for hosting.

  3. Hi Wendy! Lady is adorable! I really could use focus is so hard returning to work after 20 days off!!!!

  4. I like your answer to #2! Focus is what I need more of. And how did completely miss answering the #6 random question??? I guess I wasn't focusing on what I was doing! HA!
