It's Wednesday so I am linking up with Joyce at
When I retired from an administrative position back in 2011, I swore I would never live by deadlines again. However, I have found that there will always be a deadline for getting some things done and I do work best under self-imposed stress. So, my next big deadline is Thursday of this week. I need to get my house in order to be left for a few days. I never like coming back into a house that needs cleaning after being away.
2. May is National Barbecue Month. Do you prefer cooking indoors or out? What's the best thing about a barbecue? What's the last thing you cooked on an outdoor grill?
Although Hubby and I have a nice outdoor grill, we seldom use it. Neither of us excel in the area of outdoor cooking and we don't eat much red meat, so the majority of our cooking is inside. The last thing we cooked was probably chicken and veggies.
3. What is one thing on your "never again" list?
4. What's something that annoys you about people your own age? Something you love about your generation?
The thing that annoys me about some
I love that most my age are content with themselves and where they are in life. They still strive to excel and be all they can be but they are comfortable in their skin and confident. We no longer have the need to impress or do what's necessary to move up the ladder. We've made lasting friendships, we don't have parenting concerns and are for the most part financially secure. We still love adventure but above all else have found contentment.
5. Lilac, iris, hyacinth, pansy...your favorite purple flower?
The purple iris has always been my favorite flower.
6. Whats a song that always calms you down?
"The Majesty and Glory of Your Name!"
This is perhaps one of the most anointed contemporary pieces of worship music because it is scripture and takes one's thoughts of him/herself and turns them toward a majestic God. When that happens, it doesn't matter what is going on in our life at the time because all focus is on the Almighty Creator God who is worthy of praise and honor.
7. What's the last thing you donated?
I took two sets of bedding to Goodwill a few weeks ago.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
One of my favorite magazines is Architectural Digest and in my recent issue were some beautiful bedrooms.
As I looked at these pictures, I wondered if I could start over, with money no object, what would I want my master bedroom to look like?
From these examples, which would you choose? I'll let you know my choice at the end.
So, which of these would you want?
My personal favorite is #5, but I could sure feel regal in #6.
