This is a term my sweet DIL uses a lot and it hasn't been that long ago that she said it to me about something, but, for the life of me, I cannot remember what it was about. I have definitely learned to "chill out" a whole lot more in recent years and it's so freeing. So many things are just not worth the effort of fretting over. I'm trying hard to save all my fretting for the "big things" that come along and the rest of the time, I'm just a "chillin'." ~chuckle~
2. What most recently caused your heart to melt?
Oh, this is easy! Saturday evening my DIL, the Princess and I went to an event together. When I dropped them off afterwards, Hanna Beth was walking towards the door of their home and she turned(I was in my vehicle) and said, "I love you CiCi." Well, can I just tell you when one of my Grans says that totally unprompted, it definitely melts my heart. ~teary eyed~
3. "An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered." G.K. Chesterton
Your thoughts? When did you last experience either an adventure or an inconvenience? How did you see it at first, as an adventure or an inconvenience? Does it feel the same in hindsight?
Well, you may remember mine and Hubby's adventure last January (2014) when were headed to The Villages, Florida. There was snow and ice all between here and there but we just knew that we would not get into any of it. Oh, my, were we ever wrong! It was so bad that it delayed our arrival by an entire day. I saw it as a major inconvenience and Hubby saw it was an adventure. Looking back I do think it was pretty adventurous and definitely made for a memorable experience.
4. A Wendy's Frosty, root beer in a frosty mug, or a frosted chocolate cupcake...of these three, which one is your favorite 'frosty' treat?
I hate to say this, but I am not fond of any of the above. But, if my arm was twisted I could eat a Wendy's Frosty. Root Beer makes me gag and I'm not fond of chocolate cake, but frost me a plain white cupcake and I'd be all over that.
5. Would you say your life so far this year has been more like a circus or a symphony? Explain why.
With just almost a month under my belt I would have to say that things have gone more like a symphony. The house construction is coming along nicely, my Dad continues to do amazingly well and my DIL has done this pregnancy just like she has done it a dozen times before and all of my family is happy and healthy at this time. I mean, if that's not a symphony I don't know what is. God is just sooooooooo good and I am so undeserving!
6. Since it's a 'snow day' here, what's your favorite song containing the word 'white'?
Oh, this is easy, "A White Sports Coat and a Pink Carnation" by Marty Robbins. A cute and snappy song for sure!
7. If you had to leave the city you currently live in, what would you find the hardest to leave behind?
Well, this has been home for almost 41 years and can I just tell you that some mighty precious friendships have been formed over that time. We've birthed our babies together, reared our children together, buried our loved ones together and shared more good times than the law allows. To say it would be hard to leave behind would be an understatement. ~it's home~
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I saw the quote below on FB yesterday and thought it was well worth sharing.
