Sometimes, you may be thinking . . .
“Hey Crystal – let’s hear YOUR answers to these darn questions!”
The truth is I do get requests for that from time to time, so here are my answers for this week. 😀
1. Do you remember the first movie that you ever saw in a theater? What was it?
Yes! It was Cinderella and it’s been my favorite children’s movie ever since. I was probably in kindergarten at the time and my father took me to see it. Mum was home with a couple of babies. I do remember that she and I went to the theater another time, so they must have taken turns babysitting.
As many of you have mentioned, “the movies” were such a big deal back then! When I was in grade school, my sisters and I would often spend a whole Saturday afternoon at the local theater, where for 35 cents you could see two full-length movies and a few cartoons. And you didn’t need to take out a mortgage to buy candy or popcorn!
2. Describe the set of dishes that you use everyday. What color are they? Do they have a design on them? Do you like them?
I’ve been through a few sets of dishes since I first got married, but the ones I use right now are by Corelle in the “French Lilacs” pattern. I love the fact that they’re durable, yet lightweight.
Asking this question has reminded me that I have 4 place settings of stoneware that I loved at first, but have since let stay at the back of the cupboard. They’re very heavy to handle when you’re lugging several of them at once from table to dishwasher to cabinet.
The pattern is “Garden Party” by Pfaltzgraff. They really are very pretty . . . maybe I’ll switch to them again for a while! It will be good for my biceps! 😉
