Here are this weeks questions:
1. Do you prefer wallpaper or paint?
Paint, I love the smell of fresh paint. The house we lived in before this one had wall paper in every room. It was crazy, but I had little kids and the two year old was a great wall paper stripper. I would give them the tools and they would work all day if I had let them. We stripped and stripped wall paper and I swore never again would I have wall paper.
2. What qualities make a good friend?
I thought about this question as I walked this morning. I think in the beginning of my life, a good friend, was having tons and tons of them and being very popular. ( I wasn't I was too shy.) Then the stage of having one best friend who I could tell my secrets to, (I lived in the country so it was my horse.) Then I got married and had a family and I didn't have time for the kind of friends to go out shopping with or go to lunch with, besides I was homeschooling, You can't take 6 kids along on a lunch date. Since most of those years I was pregnant or nursing so my pretty clothes always smelled like baby barf.
So now, you would think I would have time for that, but still I don't, my children I would say are my friends because, I think that is the relationship I have put the most work into. I never look at someone that way to be my friend, a friend to me is the person I spend time with and pray for and share our lives with, even if it is in an email or a comment. So for me, I guess, a friend is whomever God sends that needs a hug, or a note or a prayer. Now it is not what they give me but what I can give to them.
3. Are you planning a summer vacation?
Okay, when I first started blogging, it was in the summer. I kept reading blogs with people taking pictures of lakes and the beaches and all kinds of places. I kept thinking why are these people going to this place or that place, then it dawned on me, it is summer, people go on vacation in summer. Does that tell you? We never go on vacation and haven't in years and years. We did when the kids were small but now, it really never even crosses our minds to even put that in planning a year. So nope, never plan a summer vacation.
4. Do you have a garage, carport, park on the street or park in your driveway?
We have a garage, and yes we park in it. The kids have to park in the driveway.
5. Tell me something interesting about your week. (oops- please)
Well, it has cooled off and we should have rain today and tomorrow. It is beautiful. I am really thankful to be alive on days like today.
School is coming down to a close. Which means I have to get in the doom closet to get next year and my final year of homeschooling.
But, I will be passing the baton off to my girls, so that when I get into the doom closet this year, I will also be getting pre school and kindergarten materials for my grand children. To me that is exciting. To have the joy of that is beyond my wildest dreams.
