Bugs in my soup!!!


The organic long grain rice I bought from Meijer had bugs in it. They didn't show until after we already ate some of our soup. Otherwise it was so delicious.

Would you eat the soup if you found bugs in it? My son did.

1. Are you pleasant when you're ill, or are you a grumpy, fussy patient?
I turn in to a whinny baby who just wants to sleep all the time.
2. When you find out that school is canceled (due to inclement weather) what is your gut reaction?
I always tease the kids like its torture,but I don't mind, I remember how fun it was to get out of school for snow days.
3. What is one domestic skill you wish you could improve?
decorating and arranging my furniture
4. Do you decorate your home for Valentine's Day?
I have a box of decorations in the attic, but I just can't get inspired to get them out.
5. What song is on your mind today?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
6. Do you prefer contemporary movies or classic?
Hallmark Movies are my favorite.
7. How well do you "compartmentalize" your feelings? For example, how well can you put aside a really trying moment to deal with the immediate situation which is not related to the trying moment, e.g., putting aside a tiff with your spouse in order to finish wallpapering a room.

8. What is the first thing that attracted you to your spouse? (Or if you're single, to your best friend.)
Eric has the most beautiful smile, and his quiet character.
9. When was the last time your heart raced?

10. What are your memories of Valentine's Day at school?
When I was a kid they always had a valentine with a skunk on it, and you didn't give that one to anyone you liked
11. If you were going to receive candy for Valentine's Day, which would you prefer?
Dove milk chocolate, please
12. Red or pink?
I can't stand pink any more, my daughters room was pink for ten years, and I guess it made me sick of it.


  1. ewwwww! Bugs in the soup! g.r.o.s.s. lol Love the song playing in your head. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

  2. Your pictures are beautiful, well except the bugs. Enjoyed your answers.

  3. I'm new at Random Dozen, and I am visiting some of the participants. I've enjoyed visiting your blog. Love the bugs in the soup--it's happened to me before, too. Once when I worked at school, there were bugs in their soup, too. Some of us had eaten it when they discovered them...I guess it's just a little extra protein. LOL Blessings to you! Kathy ( Kathy)

  4. LOL, I know the skunk valentine your referring too... My last name used to be Pugh, so my friends used to give them to me, not to be mean, but as a joke ;)

  5. I remember those skunk ones! Thanks for playing, Jenny. I'm trying to get back into visiting blogs.
