A grab bag list of ten.

The first July Monday 2012.

I love July.

I love Mondays, since meeting Stasha and Monday Listicles.

This week a random Grab Bag of fun…

1. Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 23, and find line 4. What is it?

Hubby’s book no less. Took it with me to read on vacay. “require anything of the defendant. Representatives of the..”

Maybe that was too literal. The fourth sentence on page 23…

Understanding they had different motivators, I interrupted the mediation to place a call to the president of the homeowners’ association.

Makes a little more sense.


2. How many times a day do you say Hi?

Since we are on vacation, I find I’m saying “hi” lots. Today while exercising probably said it 20 times. Add another 20 throughout the day…40 plus


3. Have you ever worn a uniform?

A blue one-piece bathing suit with name tag  at a water slide park.


4. What do you think about the most?

Think or worry?

Would have to be my children.


5. How many keys are on your keyring?


Four. Wow. I’ve really cleaned out my keyring.


6. What was the last thing you bought?

A bag of ice at Wal*Mart.


7. Are you growing anything these days?

I’m worried about my garden this week. The tomatoes should be finally crimson. The green beans need picking. The okra was starting to form yesterday when we left

Why am I on vacation?


8. What is under your bed?

At home, wood floors and a scary amount of stuff. Here on vacation…carpet.


9. What is most important in life?

Serving others and finding purpose in that.


10. What is the strangest word you used this week?

I honestly, can’t remember saying anything out of the ordinary. Wish I was more clever. My son caught a Spanish Mackerel today.

I love that word.

What about you? Any strange words or what lies under your bed?

  1. Fun list! I like the word mackerel, and the picture that goes along with it is awesome. After ai read it, I kept repeating the word to myself ( yes, I’m strange). I liked the way it rolled off my tongue. Hope you are having a great vacation!

      I thought they were good to eat Brandee, but my son said they are a very bloody fish. You need to eat them right away. This guy was used for shark bait last night — with no luck. (Luck for my son that is, good for sharks I guess.)

  2. BonnyBard says:

    I always worry about my veg garden when I’m on vacation too, it’s like having another kid!

  3. Stasha says:

    Mackarel is a rather fab word. You are all kinds of awesome for linking up from your vacation. Thank you!!
    And I love #9!

    • Jamie Miles says:

      Hey Stasha ~ I love seeing you..vacation or no. And I should add with the right motivation on number 9. Like everything it should be done with love.

  4. That’s fun! I haven’t done anything like that in forever. I should do it! Also, I really liked you til I saw that Gator keyring. War Eagle 🙂 (nah, I still like you!)

    • Jamie Miles says:

      Yes, Jana I love the Gators. Though my son, the fisherman, has been to about 10 times as many Auburn games as Gator games with his friend.

  5. Wayne says:

    Happy vacation! I hope you are enjoying it.

  6. You’re on vacation and blogging – that’s commitment!!

  7. Larks says:

    I worry about my tomatoes on vacation too. That’s one of the few downsides to a summer vacation – if there’s a heat wave or a hale storm or something you can’t do damage control.

    Also, now I want fresh fish. ;-P

    Enjoy the rest of your vacation!

  8. Jackie says:

    Oh, I do hope you are actually enjoying that vacation Jamie!! Hopefully those veggies keep on growing and are perfectly plump and ready to devour when you make it home!

  9. Ally says:

    Well, I certainly can’t claim to have used the word mackerel this week, so I think that’s a good one. Hope vacation is awesome!

  10. ellie says:

    Mackerel is comedic.

    I am jealous of your tomatoes.

  11. Robbie says:

    I LOVE okra! What is your favorite way to make/eat it?

  12. Susi says:

    Sounds like a nice veggie garden you have going. I would probably worry too. Hope all is well when you get home. Enjoy the rest of your vacation.

  13. Ducky says:

    I love fishing! What fun 🙂 Great list

  14. RoryBore says:

    I’m the same way when on vacation….worrying about my garden back home and how it is doing. I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on flowers for hanging baskets and other beautifully potted ones…..only to come home after a week away and find them all dead.

    Holy Mackerel! nice catch.

  15. Audrey says:

    Oh my goodness I hope you are having fun on vacation!!! From the picture of your son it looks beautiful! The beach not the fish LOL
