It’s that fun time of the week again when Joyce makes sure we are awake and kicking just waiting to answer her fun questions. If you would like to join us hop over to her space at From This Side Of The Pond and link up. It is a great way to meet new blogging friends or check up on your old ones.
1. Would you rather be seen as a person who did their duty or forged their own path?
Can I pick both? I have always blazed my own path, did things my way; it is that independent streak I have. I actually think my hubby has called it a stubborn streak, but yet I want to be remembered for doing my part, for raising a daughter that believes in God, and making sure my grandkids know that He is their Heavenly Father. It is such a privilege to be a child of the King!
2. This week's Wednesday Hodgepodge happens to fall on Groundhog's Day. In keeping with that theme, if you could have a do-over of any one day out of the last seven, which day would it be and why. If you haven't seen the movie Groundhog Day this question will make absolutely no sense but that's okay....you can answer anyway.
You thought my question was going to be weather related didn't you?
Joyce, that is two questions – only one at a time. lolol Probably last Thursday, I felt like it was a waste of time. I did not get anything done, which to be honest I do not do a lot anyways. I was up late the night before and I slept late, so it just felt like most of the day was gone. I hate that feeling.
3. Hot cocoa...yay or nay on the marshmallows?
If it is instant with the marshmallows already there I like it. I will not add mini marshmallows though. I know strange, what can I say?
4. Do you wear makeup every day? What are the top two must haves in your daily makeup routine?
Well if the inquiring minds really want to know, I do not wear makeup of any kind. I tried at different times in my life but it never agreed with my skin. I have very sensitive skin. I do have two things that I must do or must have every day. One is wash my face with cold water that is a must! Then I use moisturizer every day sometimes twice a day. I have problems with eczema and dermatitis. I always put moisturizer on the back of my neck and my ears and at times have to use a prescription steroid crème.
5. Is it more important to you in a relationship to be loved or understood?
I have to know without a doubt that I am loved; I think that is because of past experience. Actually I picked that one because who in their right mind could understand me??? lol
6. Parsley sage rosemary or thyme... your favorite?
Scarborough Affair – Simon and Garfunkel 1966
Oh that is not what you were looking for? Ok I actually use whatever the recipe calls for. On my own I use Cavender’s seasoning a lot, which is a mixture of different seasonings.
7. What do you do when you feel angry?
I try to walk away and start praying. I bite my tongue a lot.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I think the majority of us have been forced to enjoy the winter weather the last couple of days. I know some of you have already had it, but you have to understand we usually do not get it. We sometimes have an inch or two once or twice in the winter. We have about 10 – 12 inches; the roads have not been plowed yet. They closed the Battlefield Mall today. I have seen maybe one vehicle make it up the little incline on the road in front of our house. Under the snow there is ice, not a good mixture. But at least the ice did not cling to the trees or power lines, it could have been so much worse. Looks like we will postpone the trip to Arkansas. Here are a few pictures I took. Hope you enjoy them.
Please remember my cousin Ginger in prayer, her surgery is Friday. We are praying and believing that the mass is not cancerous!
“And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing ye shall receive." Matthew 21:22
until next time… nel
