1. Are there any women or men in blue in your family tree?
That does not seem to be the line of work anyone in our family has gone
into that I know. We do have a few preachers!
2. Are you someone who suffers from the Sunday night blues?
What helps you to get over it?
I've never thought of feeling blue on Sunday nights. I usually look forward
to a new week and the "Monday morning fresh starts."
A new week is full of potential.
3. I read the color blue is an appetite suppressant since there are
very few naturally blue foods out there. How do you feel about blue cheese?
Love it or hate it? If you're a fan, what's something you
like that's made with blue cheese?
I like blue cheese sprinkled over salads and in salad dressing and that's about it.
I do love another blue food--berries!
4. We can't head into Labor Day weekend without a related question.
Complete this thought: "I work best when …"
I have a list to check off, I feel inspired, and/or I have lots of energy.
5. "Everything yields to diligence." (Antiphanes)
Your thoughts? (on this particular quote or on diligence in general)
I'm not sure every bit of diligence brings the results you hope for, but working
with diligence is a noble quality and one we don't see as much of as we used to.
My parents raised us saying, "If something is worth doing,
it's worth doing with diligence."
6. The National Park Service turned 100 years old on August 25th.
Have you been to many of America's National Parks? If so share with
us a favorite or two. Which National Park would you most like to visit
before the next birthday rolls around?
We haven't seen enough of our national parks but hope to improve on that soon.
We loved the Grand Canyon, of course, and the Smokey Mountains!
We like having our senior free park passes. Yellowstone in one on our list!
7. Bid farewell to August in seven words or less.
It's been a long and hot month. Good thing I used a contraction!
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Four days ago I lost my keys. I searched diligently wherever they might be,
and finally decided to stop and make plans to replace the keys in time,
(but not yet of course). Mentally that helped.
Just yesterday I realized I was missing a credit card,
and traced its loss back to the same day the keys disappeared.
I found the credit card waiting for me behind the service counter
where I had made a purchase. When I arrived home from
retrieving it, I found the keys hiding under a large hassock.
Lost within an hour of each other and both found the same hour,
four days later. My lesson from this tale is:
