Quiz about me and Coffee Chat

  happy Tuesday. let's back track to Monday Quiz about me and do the coffee chat today too...yea , it is all sorts of "Akward" today :-\
 
 
1. Today is International Astronomy Day - do you star gaze?  Have a favorite constellation?
 
A:--no, i do not really star gaze unless it is a big sky event, like comets, or meteor showers or eclipses. my favorite constellation would be "The Big Dipper". it is fun at times to try and find all the constellations on a full star night.

2. It is also Great Poetry Reading Day - share something poetic...
(* It's also Kiss Your Mate Day -but I don't think we need to discuss that *-*)
 
A:--haha! roses are red, violets are blue, i love to blog now how about you? ok, corney i know, but really i am not a poet and i know it! Hallmark does it best :)


3. Volunteering has been a big topic around our house lately - do you volunteer?  What kinds of volunteering do you enjoy?
 
A:--yes, i volunteer when i can. with working full time it is hard now. i help out at the blood bank, food drives etc. of course now to begin to volunteer is like applying for a JOB, i mean they want reference and all...ummm, remember, YOU ALL ARE NOT PAYING ME, why do you need all this?

4. April 30th is National Honesty Day - clear your soul - and be honest about something you've been holding in...
 
A:--ummm, i think i tell it as it is most time. i guess i could be more honest about my pet peeves? i am also pretty sad that in the past 2 weeks, well past week really there have been negative and racist comments made by people who should know better and of influence. just saddens me that we make steps forward and then end up going back to the 1850's in some of our minds. 
 
Tuesday Coffee Chat time! grab your cup and let's chat!
This week is about Awkwardness. Small Talk? How to Start a good Conversation?
 
 Time out for Mom
 
--i think i am ok at small talk. there is enough going on in the world and funny meme's to start them. to start up a conversation with someone i do not know, i usually bring up a topic about a current event or sports, or last nights popular show that i watched...it gets things going and flowing. with people i know, "Good Morning" or "Hello" usually does the trick,

  2. One great thing about living in the country, rather than the city, is star gazing. No big city lights to affect the view. And there is nothing like lying out under a big canvas of stars: Starlight Hotel has the best rooms with a view! :)
    I love poetry! I used to have a lot more on my blog, but I moved it over to my tumblr because many of my readers don't "poet". ha.
    I volunteer at my church by teaching a Sunday School class - and whenever they need help with something in the church, or the community. I also was a part of a local mommy group for the past couple years, but that recently ended. We also sponsor a child through Plan Canada - so that's volunteering my money. Of which we have little of ourselves, but I feel it's an important thing to teach my children. We write her letters and send pictures of Canada.
    That always proves a great conversation topic actually.
    Although, I am rarely at loss for words.

    1. Rory, it would be nice to have clear skies to see the starts.

  3. I love astronomy. The sky is endlessly fascinating, especially at night.
    I do the same, in trying to start a conversation. If I start in generalities, hopefully it will spark a deeper conversation.
