Yes, yes, it’s Thursday. That’s okay :). Depending on the week, you might start seeing these on Wednesdays or Thursdays, but I’ll still call them “Wednesday Chats” for simplicity’s sake.

Do you like cucumbers? Is there a favorite way you prepare them?
Oh, yes! I’ve never met a cucumber I didn’t like . . . well, except the ones that end up bitter. I don’t like those at all. As for preparation, I just like them raw. Sliced on their own or chopped in a salad, it doesn’t matter. When I was a kid, my mom used to soak them in vinegar so they had an *almost* pickled flavor, but not the same as pickles – more like tart cucumbers than pickles. I’ve never tried that, even though I kinda like it, so it’s been years since it’s I’ve had them that way.
How good a housekeeper are you?
On a scale of 1-5, probably a 3. Given a choice I’ll do anything besides housework. On the other hand, I hate clutter and messes, so I do my best to keep things tidy.
Please finish this: To spend a day _____ would be amazing!
Hm. This is hard for me. I suppose . . .
To spend a day playing on Santa Monica beach would be amazing!
(We got to do this for just a few hours when we were on vacation last year. I would love to go back!)
How do you handle times when you are “down” and “blue” (depressed)?
I just kind of hole up and ignore everyone. It’s not the healthiest way of dealing with it, I know, but it works for me. Fortunately those feelings don’t come around too often.
Have you started using essential oils since they have become so popular?
Nope. They’re a bit out of my price range.
