      Yes, Rach, aren’t those great things to do?
      I must admit, I have been quite the picky eater for most of my life.
      But, I have finally begun to experiment (at least in my mind) with many more things! :-)

  10. Ramona- It’s a beautiful day here in Japan (the day after a typhoon always) and this is such a lovely surprise. This morning my husband and I have received much good news about our move to the US soon and then I come here to see this! Thank you so much for featuring my blog this week. I love the mix of content on Friendship Fridays … it’s the perfect preparation for the weekend! Happy Friday! -Catherine :)

      It always gives me joy to surprise my featured guests – I’m so glad I could make your day!
      Would LOVE to hear more about your move to the US (I have another friend who hopes to be returning soon as well!

      The content of the featured posts have really influenced my content these last few weeks as well.

      Have a wonderful weekend, dear Cat! :-)

      • It looks like we should be moving to Syracuse, NY next month if all goes well. Originally, I’m from FL so this should be a bit adjustment, but I hear the summers, the food culture, and the people are nice. Honestly, the VISA process has been shocking long so we are uber excited. My hubby and I are off to conquer a mountain this weekend (a small one), our summer fun! Any fun weekend plans?

    A very interesting concept, emotional literacy! Yes, I remember how interesting I found crafts, as well as word games, as a young girl, first being exposed to them in the classroom and I still do both with my students, which they love. One in particular they find quite challenging and that is trying to form smaller words from one larger word with a time limit.

    Thank you for hosting and have a wonderful weekend!

    I always like to see what Magellan is up to, such a regal kitty. I love gardening but only in pots, creating crafts when the creative juices kick in, which lately has not happened. Hope you have a great weekend.

    There are many things that I like to do for fun! One is reading. I am a voracious reader, and I always have a book with me. I also like camping and hiking. My hubby and I love to play Scrabble, and enjoy putting together jigsaw puzzles.

    To answer Cat’s question, I can remember playing all sorts of things when I was growing up. I had Barbies (why I sold them I’ll never know – they’d be worth a fortune now!). But, my favorite thing to play was *school* – I loved being a teacher. Even though I never taught in school, I can see where God has used my love of teaching in many other areas.

    GOD BLESS!

  23. hi ramona thanks for the lovely party. To answer your questions just got into art journaling and experimenting with mixed media, love cooking and playing with frankie who by the way says hello to your fur babies have a great weekend.
