Time and Life

Joining all the Hodgepodgers for this week's Q&A session.  Thanks Joyce.

Can you believe we are almost into the 2nd month of 2022?  Gracious!

1. January 25th is National Opposites Day.  'They' say opposites you agree, and if so is that a good thing?  Or do you subscribe more to a 'birds of a feather' philosophy?

Actually, I subscribe to both.  Dick and I are opposites in so many respects and we were definitely attracted to each other on February 6, 1965.  There have been many issues to work out and adjust to because of our differences, but God has held it together.

I tend to attract the opposite, but in friendships I prefer the birds of a feather.

2.  Something you're glad to have behind you?  Something you're glad is ahead of you?

So glad to have 2020 behind, and glad to have 2022 ahead with so many exciting things to look forward to.

3.  Your favorite hot food?  Cold food?  Are you a fan of breakfast for dinner?

I'm not a foodie, but I will never turn down a hot off the grill, medium cooked filet mignon.

Cold would be
Yes, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day; however when doing intermittent fasting, I will take breakfast anytime after 12 p.m.
4.  Are you someone who always arrives to appointments/events early or do you tend to run late?  Last thing you were late for?

Can't stand being late, but don't want to be too early either.

The last thing I was late for?
Missed the whole thing.
5.  "What good is the warmth of summer without the cold of winter to give it sweetness?"  John Steinbeck...Your thoughts?

This about says it regarding seasons where I live.

6.  Insert your own random thought here.

Today while doing some work, I was able to trace my dad's side of the family back to my 12th Great Grandfather, Thomas Lazenby, born in 1480, and died in 1541 in Yorkshire, England.  How great is that!

Sunday our church recognized "Sanctity of Life" where we celebrated the dignity of all life.  It is such a privilege to be able to do volunteer work in our church's Pregnancy Center and see lives saved every week.

Hello, My name is Libby. I enjoy reading good books, painting, blogging, spending time with friends and whatever my "Heart" leads me to do. Welcome to Beauty Without Within.


  1. This sentence from your #1 answer fits us to a tee: but God has held it together. When I share my story, I often title it "But God." I love the cartoon about the weather. You could exchange "weather in Texas" to "weather in Alabama." When I left work yesterday, it had warmed up considerably. I didn't even need my jacket to walk to the car. This morning, it is frigid (it was 31 when I was driving to work) and the high is in the 40's. Hope you have a great day!!

  2. Though vague, I know what you mean about having to work through differences when you and your mate are opposites. We have had to also but it made us stronger.

  3. I'm glad you both have God in your life. My Mark doesn't believe. I'm with you on the filet mignon, ice cream and breakfast anytime. I love your random.

  4. Haha...your weather cartoons were funny! I enjoyed your answers. I would love to someday trace family history.

  5. I am with you, Libby. When it comes to friendships, I am birds of a feather as well. Have a great week. Isn't this weather beautiful?


I do love reading your comments, so please share your thoughts with me.
