Thanks to my hot water heater going out and not being able to get a shower, I have some time on my hands at home today.  I'm sorry but I just can't bring myself to take a cold shower and I absolutely can't go out of the house without a shower.  

Since I'm home waiting on the repairman to get here, I get to participate in one of my favorite parties.  It has been a long time since I've gotten to link up with my friend, JAVA, over at NEVER GROWING OLD for her wonderful......

1. What is your favorite pasta dish?

My pesto pasta from last time that we had it!

Pasta is yummy but it doesn't always agree with me.  I feel better when I choose something light and healthy.  My favorite is Pesto Pasta.  I take cooked rotini pasta, fresh pesto, baby spinach and freshly grated Parmesan cheese and mix that all together.  I usually serve this with David's famous grilled chicken breast.  To mine, I add grape tomato halves and a few sun dried tomatoes because that's how I like it.  I can eat it hot or cold.  No tomatoes for David please and he always eats his hot.  That looks so good that I think it's time that I make it again!

2. What is the last thing you do before going to bed?

Couple asleep in bed

After kissing my husband, telling him goodnight and praying that our sleep will be sweet (Proverbs 3:24), I always start out snuggling David's back.  I'm sorry that I don't have one of my photos to share in this one.  ha!  That would be way too creepy, I think.  The lady in the photo above is on the wrong side though.  We have particular sides that we must sleep on each night.  Funny creatures, we are!

3. How many nights a week do you go out to eat?

Normally, we eat out maybe once a week.  David usually will grill up some chicken breasts or a pork loin on the weekends and then we eat that most of the week in various ways... in salads or pasta or rolled up in a tortilla.  We are big on rolling things up in tortillas around here.

If we don't have anything cooked, I will stop by the store and grab one of these babies.....

4. Are you an avid book reader?

Once upon a time, I was an avid book reader.  I lived at the library.  So many books, so little time.... and then I discovered blogs.  Now there are so many blogs, so little time....and I occasionally like to write something up on my own blog so that takes time too.   Right now, I'm reading a very interesting book...

5. Would you rather have x-ray vision or bionic hearing?

Woman's Eye

I would rather have x-ray vision than bionic hearing.  I currently have impairment in each area; however, I think to have clearer vision would more of an advantage than the bionic hearing.  There are some things that just do not need to be heard, amen?

Thanks for taking time to visit me today and sticking with me through this post.  I'm headed over now to link up at NEVER GROWING OLD.   

Won't you join me there?


  1. Oh my goodness, that PASTA looks delish! Now I know what I'm making for dinner!!! Love your answers!!! Hugs~Mitzi

  2. I agree, this pasta looks delicious. What a shame I cant smell it over here! I like that you like to roll up things ;-)) Me too ;-)) Love from my heart to yours

  3. This looks like a fun post but I"m too lazy to do my own tonight. I'd have to make pasta after posting about it, just too tempting. I love those little chickens - mentioned in my recent food post. And vision anyday above hearing.

  4. Thank you all for stopping by!

    Mitzi, it's going to be dinner here again really soon.

    Paula...it smells yummy. I wish you could have some.

    Kim...I'm usually too tired to get one posted on Monday myself; but I unexpectedly had the day off. I remember your post about those little chickens. That salad looked incredible! I don't know why I don't think of strawberries in my salads more often. I'm with you on the vision thing, sister!

  5. Oh I love reading!!! Hope that's a good read for you!

  6. So far so good! Thanks for stopping by!

  7. The pasta looks yummy!
    Hubby and I have our own sides of the bed too, never switch, it would just feel all wrong :)

  8. I am so with you, I hate cold showers. I want the shower steaming hot.
    I also agree about not reading books but blogs. I just love seeing the day to day lives of people around the country.
    I hope you had a great day!

  9. That pesto pasta looks great. Is it Italian? Cuz I'm hosting an Italian pot luck dinner here in a couple weeks and need to come up with something.

    I read that same book about a year ago. Might I also suggest Grace Unknown by R.C. Sproul.

  10. pasta.....I'm hungry now! Great answers!

  11. The pasta looks delish...I have one similar and I saute eggplant and add to that combo. Its really good.

  12. hmmm...pasta. although i'm a rice person, i do love my pasta from time to time.

    thank you for the get well wish. i'm still recuperating. it's not easy getting sick especially with my condition.

    hope all is well.

  13. Love love love the look of that pesto pasta!

    Alex aka Ma What's For Dinner

  14. The pasta does look good. We eat a lot of pasta and tortillas!

  15. Sorry to hear that your hot water heater wasn't working - hope it's fixed by now! We had ours act up a few years back and I will never forget the cold shower I had to take before my little brother's college graduation. Never again! Sure does make you appreciate a nice, hot shower though :)

    That pasta looks delish! Fresh pesto is so good. I'm forever stealing basil from my mom's house...I got "busted" last night by her neighbors, ha!

  16. Love the pasta dish ~ looks delish! Hope you got the water heater replaced with no problems.


  17. You can make that pasta dish for me anytime.
