1. Since these questions are posting on the first day of April it seems only right to ask-when was the last time you did something foolish? If you can't answer that one, try this one-when was the last time someone fooled you?
I am going to have to plead the 5th on this one.
2. What's the last biography or non-fiction book you've read? Was it any good?
"To Marry an English Lord" by MacColl & Wallace. Yes, I really enjoyed reading this book as it was a tale of "Wealth and Marriage, Sex and Snobbery" in the early 1800's to the early 1900's in America and England. The dynamics played out in Downton Abby certainly make more sense now. I did learn that Princess Diana was a 3rd generation heiress of such an arrangement. All in all it was a very interesting history lesson.
I am currently reading "Hearts West: True Stories of Mail-Order Brides on the Frontier." It's interesting enough, but not compelling. Stories of Heiresses and Lords are much more captivating, I'm afraid.
3. Garlic-friend or foe? What's your favorite dish made with garlic?
Friend! I love Garlic Bread, but also like a bit of garlic in most dishes.
4. Several Spring flower festivals happen in the US during the month of April. Of those listed, which would you most like to see in person...The Skagit Tulip Festival in Skagit Washington, The Dogwood Arts Festival in Knoxville Tennessee, The North Carolina Azalea Festival in Wilmington North Carolina or the Daffodil Festival Weekend on Nantucket Island, Massachussets?
Any and all of these would be wonderful to experience, but if we have to do just one, I think it would be The North Carolina Azalea Festival. North Carolina is such a beautiful state and we just love our azaleas down in the south. I am also thinking that either before or after enjoying the festival, I could do some sight-seeing through-out the state.
5. How do you choose which blogs to read? What is something that will make you stop and read every time? Something that makes you say, 'eh, think I'll skip this one and move on to the next'?
I enjoy reading blogs that pertain to interests that we might have in common, such as decorating, fashion, art and of course favorite memes such as this one. I also will read those who write devotional thoughts. I usually pass on the ones that require more time to read than I have time to spend, or if it involves doing some crafty project. I enjoy browsing all the blogs I have marked as favorites as time allows.
A few minutes ago when a Mary Kay customer called for some products. Yes Ma'am, I like doing that kind of math. Ching, ching!
Alertness! Tuesdays are our Handbell Choir practice days. As we will be playing for the church services the next two weeks, I needed all the alertness I could muster this morning. I do enjoy playing handbells not only for the musical aspect, but it keeps my mind and eye/hand coordination actively involved.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
This past weekend I attended the Mary Kay Career Conference in Dallas. We had a great time hearing inspirational speakers and seeing new products soon to be introduced. It is always fun to re-unite with these beautiful Houston ladies. Thanks Cele for being such a great hostess.
On Sunday after attending church at Wilshire Baptist Church, we ate at a Mexican restaurant and because the day was so gorgeous, we ate outside in the courtyard.
I decided to try something new and ordered Sopas from the Brunch Menu.
Let's just say "Delicious!"
Sunday afternoon, I got to spend a little while visiting with our daughter, Christy and granddaughter Ava Grace. AG was practicing for an up-coming Children's Musical at Prestonwood Baptist Church.
It was so good to visit with them for a few minutes.
And let me leave you with this thought:
