1. I read a list of 13 things you should do in June. I'm paraphrasing a bit, but basically...
Go on a trip with your best friend, pick fresh strawberries, host a garden party, go on a run, treat yourself to a flower bouquet, spend a whole day hiking, visit a new coffee shop, try a new ice cream flavor, read at least one book, visit a Farmer's Market, make a swing for your home, and visit a new city.
Which thing on the list do you most want to do? Of the activities mentioned which one holds the least appeal? How many on the list will you attempt in June? What's one thing you would add to the list?
I will treat myself to a summer boquet! I love having fresh flowers on the dining table. I'm sure I'll also read at least one book in June. The one I am reading is long. Hopefully I'll get through it this month. The one that holds the least appeal to me is taking a whole day long hike. I am just not that into hiking anymore. I'm pretty sure I won't be making a swing for my house either. LOL! I won't even tell you the images that brings to my mind.....
2.What's something you could do today to feel more peaceful?
Oh how I struggle with this thing called peace. For the most part I have peace. But I worry about everything. I worry too much! I worry about things I have no control over. I have had friends tell me to just let go and let God. Yeah, right! Easier said than done. For TODAY I will let go of perfectionism. For today I will not beat myself up for anything I do wrong!! How's that?
3. June 7th is National Chocolate Ice Cream Day. Are you a fan? Swiss mocha, Rocky Road, Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Peanut butter and Chocolate, or a plain dish of chocolate...what's your pleasure?
One thing I did not do today was celebrate National Chocolate Ice Cream Day. I don't care much for chocolate ice cream. I am a vanilla ice cream kinda gal. I might add a bit of chocolate fudge to it. But I am sticking with vanilla as the base!
4. If you came with a warning what would it say?
Oh there would be a few....Beware:Don't speak to me until I speak to you early in the morning....Caution: Approach carefully if I am pissed...Do not wake me unless there is blood or broken bones or a fire (that is one I used for my boys when I was a night shift nurse)
5. What's the most interesting website you've visited in the last week?
6. Spring, summer, autumn, winter..which season on you? Why?
I am Summer! I love the heat. I love the sun. I love the smell of freshly mowed grass. I love the feel of warm dirt in my hands when I am pulling weeds. I love to pull weeds. I love to plant and tend flowers. I love to swim. I love to eat a warm tomato plucked off the vine. I love watermelon juice dripping off my chin. I love BBQ! Yep, I am summer!
7. "You lose sight of things...and when you travel everything balances out. ~ Daranna Gidel
Would you agree with that sentiment? Why or Why not?
I don't know that I agree with this. I think you can be balanced and not travel at all. I love to travel but I think those days might be behind me. I am glad Richard and I traveled as much as we did when he was still able.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Well it looks like we are going to have our first woman Presidential Candidate in the USA. I'm pretty sure Hilary Clinton will get the nomination from the Democratic Party. Now we have a few more months of this pathetic campaign year before we can quit listening to all the silliness going on. I am no where closer to picking who I am going to vote for. Are you??
