Cee has done her weekly thing – that is, post questions to rouse our minds and get us thinking. Quite a feat – getting my mind to thinking early in the morning.
1. What are some words that just make you smile? Marigold. Supercalifragilisticexpealadocious. Hugs. Sunshine. I’m sure there are more happy words, but those are the ones that come to mind immediately. Don’t ask why because I would have no answer.
2. When you lose electricity in a storm, do you light the candles or turn on the flashlight? How many of each do you own? Usually I light candles (of which I own many) and the two oil lamps I keep on hand. Flashlights (I have three) for seeing in areas that are not well lit by candles and oil lamps – when I’m looking for something. I must knock on wood here and say that although we had regular outages when we first moved here, lately we have had only momentary blips. Hopefully that will continue or improve.
3. What is the longest book you ever read? Oh! You ask this of one who never remembers titles? I do know it was one of James Michener’s books, but I do not remember which one.
4. So you win a pet monkey at a fair, but this isn’t just any old monkey. It can do one trick for you whenever you want from getting a pop out of the fridge to washing your hair. What would be the trick? Putting my little clutter piles into their proper places. Or maybe vacuuming. Or scrubbing hard surface floors. Cleaning bathroom? Could the one trick be that it’s a multi-tasking monkey and could do all of the above?
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I’m in a rut here. I’m grateful for the sunny days, for my morning room where I sit to enjoy my coffee, for my furry four-legged children, for my friends and my kids. I’m looking forward in the week coming up (that would be starting next Sunday) to a Girls’ Week at the Coast. This week I’m looking forward to completing the spring cleanup yard work, which is well on its way to completion.
Now, a few pictures and a few more words – more of both than you probably really want, but what can I say? This represents a typical sunny morning with the views from my window and from my chair where I sit with my morning coffee.
I hope this moment, this day, this week – you have enough.
