Tell Me Tuesday: Week Eleven

Welcome to Tell Me Tuesday.....First off the title is a bit deceiving.....it really is not about you telling me anything.... but answering a question truthfully and maybe telling yourself a little something you had not thought about.

I'd love for you to join me each week, and copy the question onto your blog and answer the question....and link back here. I am sure it will be interesting how there will be many different answers to the same question.....and hopefully give each of us something to think about as this new year progresses. My thought is so many people (including myself) are looking for some answers to various things. I have a feeling that the answers are inside needing to be jiggled loose and maybe a question posed a certain way will have a cause and effect in a good way. We will see how it goes! I have committed to this once a week for the whole year of 2012. I'd love for you to take the challenge with me!

I am keeping the rules simple...I'd love to watch this grow as the year goes on.

1. Grab the button on the sidebar if you like so others can find this new writing experience each week.

2. Once you link in, visit the person who linked in before you and leave them a comment. It would be great to visit and leave comments for as many as you can. But at least try and leave the person ahead of you in the link a comment of support.

3. Please link back to my blog and mention Tell Me Tuesday somewhere in your POST. That is it....easy.

Most of all, look at this writing experience with an open mind. Sometimes the questions will be hard...and require some thought. That is a good thing. Other times it will be easy. You can add photos, or whatever you like to your post. It is about you after all. ~ Thanks for joining me.....I hope you enjoy this each week.

Week Eleven Question:

What is the best part of your average day?

I'd have to say the best part of an average day or any day for me is dinnertime. I usually always have supper ready when my husband comes home and we are able to sit down at the table and have dinner and talk about our day. 

We have always had dinner at the kitchen table, even when the kids were small and growing up. When the kids are home, we eat at the table. It is very, very seldom that we eat anywhere but the kitchen table....maybe Superbowl Sunday but other than that, we really don't.

I think today, far too many families do not practice this habit and it is really an anchoring of the family to each other and a way to communicate without a lot of distractions.

I enjoy cooking, so I enjoy preparing a meal for dinner, and enjoy the fact someone comes home and enjoys eating it and enjoys a few minutes reserved only for us. 

On the flip side of that I have to confess, there are absolutely days when I really don't feel like cooking and if I was honest, my husband would be just as happy to go out to eat. However, I have found that eating out is just not the same as eating a meal at your own kitchen table. 

We usually reserve Saturday's to eat lunch out somewhere and we have done that for many years. It is the evening meal that we usually have at home. I guess it is more of a habit than any thing else, but it is a habit that makes my heart happy and it really is the best part of my day. What about you? What is the best part of your average day?


  1. That use to be the best part when I would sit down with my kids and enjoy the family time together. Now I must admit we eat in front of the TV. Of course we are both home all day so we see each other always...lol. My best part of the day. Mornings with coffee and my guy and I talk...
    hugs, Linda

  2. Suzanne,
    I agree..dinnertime is a delightful time.. especially with children..to share events of the day. I too was brought up with ALL meals being eaten at the table. Society has dramatically changed the family dynamic so that this routine is nearly impossible. It is up to the parents to set the tone for family meals.
    I've joined your party.. love it!

  3. You make me feel better about my post. I've only been married 3 years, but having been single and independent so long, I was kind of embarrassed to realize how big a deal seeing David in the evening was to me. :)

    I agree that eating together at the table is special and important. When my nieces are over, we always have great discussions at the tale, no cell phones, no computers. People-time is so important!

  4. I agree, I LOVE supper time and enjoy watching Hubby and family enjoy what I made! I must say I enjoy planning and preparing it too!
    This is a fun idea for a new party!!!
    Have a wonderful week,

  5. I have to say I am jealous! We eat in front of the tv every single night. However, I grew up eating with my parents and siblings at the dinner table every night. It really made a difference in my life. I miss those days!

  6. This is neat! I'm a new follower. I'll definitely do this next Tuesday!

  7. Somehow I missed Tuesday... I think because the kids are on spring break.....



Sometimes someone says something really small, and it's like it fits into this empty space in your heart!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts here, they really mean a lot to me!
