When I look at the sky I feel
that this world is just a whole lot bigger than my mind can comprehend and that the sky forms this big huge tent over the entire universe. And, it's such a shame that we cannot live like one big happy universe under that tent. ~sad~
2. If you had to run for political office, which one would you run for? Do you have any real desire to actually do this?
Oh, my goodness, I might as well set my sites high and run for President. I'm just almost certain I could do a better job than the current administration, but then, that's not saying a lot. I have absolutely NO desire to run for any political office or have anything to do with anything political.
3. What scent makes you think of home?
When I grew up there were no home fragrances as such but the one smell that reminds me of home is Chanel No.5. It was the perfume my Mom wore for as long as I can remember and while I rarely get a whiff of it now, if I do, it reminds me of home and my Momma.
4. How often do you take a step back to think about where you're headed in life? Do you need more or less self-reflection?
I spent quite a lot of time in self-reflection when I turned 60 two years ago the 29th of this month. And, I spend way more time in self-reflection than I ever have and I think that often "goes with the turf" as we age. I realize that I have less time than I have ever had to make my life count and to make memories and I want to make the best use of the time I have left, ever how little or how much it is.
5. July is National Ice Cream Month...besides a cone, what's your favorite food item to top with ice cream?
I have never enjoyed topping anything with ice cream, cake, pie,etc. I want my vanilla ice cream by itself and I want my piece of pie or cake by itself. I know, weird, but it's just the way I am. I don't like meringue on pie either and always take it off and eat the pie with it. ~double weird~
6. What might your autobiography be called?
"Glimpses Into the Life of a Southern Gal" - exactly what I have on my blog header. ~smile~
7. Your least favorite mode of transportation? Why?
A train. When Bridget was in the 6th grade she was a part of a choir that had the opportunity to sing for the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, DC. There were 60+ kids in this choir so their director was looking for an affordable way to get that many kiddos and a bunch of parents to Washington, DC. Amtrack was the most affordable, so Amtrack it was. It was an experience for sure and not one I would ever care to repeat and cured me of any desire to ride a train anywhere. But, I do know folks that have ridden Amtrack to their destinations and thoroughly enjoyed it. It could have been that keeping up with 60 plus kids was just "too much sugar for a dime." ~sweet memories~
8. Insert your own random thought here.
This was the scene at our house yesterday afternoon. Clancy and Hanna Beth were busy as bees building with their Legos. I am so amazed at how their little 4 and 5 year old eyes and hands can build with them and they build such neat creations. They are so sweet together and are a real joy to this CiCi.
