Question Time

   Every weekend I will have a blog post where I ask and answer questions.  It is a good way for readers to get to know more about me and also help me to get feedback on a number of questions.  Do you have a sweet tooth?  Yes, but the strangest thing is that if sweet things are not around me for a very long time I can do without them.  However if they are in my home I struggle to keep away from them. Nevertheless there are times when I eat so much and no more.
  As usual I am participating in Friendship Friday hosted by Create With Joy where this week the theme is Children's books.  What are your favourite books from your childhood?  The Bobbsey Twins Books.  Who is your favourite children's author? Laura Lee Hope, the author of these books.

Oh I have thought of The Bobbsey Twins in years. Great choice and I loved anything by Judy Blume and the Babysitter's Club, too. Can't believe the weekend is coming now and hope you have a great one!!

Sandee said...

Nope I don't. I can do without dessert anytime. Rarely do I have dessert and if I do it would probably be ice cream.

Have a terrific day. ☺

Judy Haughton-James said...

Ice-cream is usually what I have as dessert Sandee. Today I had some rum and raisin ice-cream with cake!:) Soon I will take a break though. I just have to make sure they are kept out of the house! Enjoy the rest of your day.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thank you very much for sharing your comments Janine. I wish you and your family a great weekend.

MikiHope said...

Oh--I remember the Bobsy Twin books--and the Nancy Drew Mysteries--loved both of the series but darned if I can remember who wrote them!!

Judy Haughton-James said...

I used to read Nancy Drew Books too MikiHope and if I recall correctly a few Hardy Boys. I watched some of the Nancy Drew Series on television.

Deezy said...

Thank you for stopping by. I emailed you last week.. Have you checked this out? http://deezydoesiteezy.blogspot.com/2013/05/winner-announcement-talking-twine-and.html

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks a lot for informing me about my win Deezy. I have not seen the email. Probably it got lost in my spam folder. I will get in touch with you tomorrow for more details. It is now after 9 p.m. and bed time for me in Jamaica!:) Take care until then.

oKAY First Yes I guess I do have a sweet tooth, but it's only for ice-cream. That is so my downfall in my diet. hehehe Now my question for you is are you the smiling twin or the grin one? Out of your header there is one twin that shows teeth & one that doesn't was wondering which one are you? Have a great weekend my friend.

I've heard of them but not read them. I had so many favorites as a child that it's hard to choose. Beverly Cleary, SE Hinton, Dr. Suess, Judy Blume. I really could go on.

Today I like Laura Nuemeroff for the wee littles. Her books are funny and the illustrations are too.

Judy Haughton-James said...

I am also a big fan of ice-cream and even tried a no sugar one recently Marie. Janine is the one with the big smile. That certainly helped us to tell the difference in many pictures!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks for sharing your comments Rosey! There are some other books that I used to read but I can't remember the names of the books and authors now. Age takes its toll! LOL

Theresa said...

I was always a big Baby Sitters Club reader when I was little. And the Sweet Valley Twins too!

Have a great weekend Judy!

Judy Haughton-James said...

I wish I had a chance to read the Sweet Valley Twins also Theresa.

Whoo judy, I have a sweet tooth :)
Thanks for sharing with us at the hop :)

Christina Morley said...

Thanks for linking on my Make My Sat. Sweet and leaving a comment! I can see why you would like books about twins, being a twin yourself. I always wanted to have identical twins, because I used to read the Sweet Valley High books and found it so fascinating. I never did have twins. Once again, I'm sorry for your loss of your twin sis.

Baked beans for breakfast by Ruth Chew was my favorite book. When I was under 6 years old, it was the blossoms of Pearl Garden. Sheila @ The Frugal Exerciser

Judy Haughton-James said...

You are welcome Paula!

Paula Miller said...

I read the Bobbsey Twins too! Along with all of the Nancy Drew's and Trixie Belden. My Mom had all the books from when she was growing up, so it was like a built-in library at my home.

I note that you also read Bobbsey Twins and Nancy Drew books Paula. I have never read any of Trixie Belden's books.

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks a lot Maria! I am also over here craving a lot of ice-cream. Today I will have some Rum and raisin ice-cream!:) When this is finished I will try not to buy any more for a few weeks. I will be sure to have some Grape nut ice-cream during summer. My weekend has been fine. I hope you, Steve and Piper have been having a good Sunday and wish you a great week. Lots of Love, Friendship and Best wishes always.

Mary Hill said...

Hi my favorite book was Nancy Drew. I read all of them in middle school in late 70's and early 80's. It was the original series available at my school library. Did you know Carolyn Keene was a pen name and the serial edior paid various writes to write the books?

Judy Haughton-James said...

The Nancy Drew Series were so popular Mary. Thanks for the information about the author. Laura Lee Hope was also a pseudonym used by the author of the Bobbsey Twins.

April @ 100lb Countdown said...

I am the same way! I don't think about sweets unless they are around. I wish I could avoid it when I see it too! :) Have a great Sunday!

Judy Haughton-James said...

Thanks for your comments April! Have a great week.
