1. I read here a list of 13 things you should do in June. I'm paraphrasing a little but basically...
Go on a road trip with your best friend, pick fresh strawberries, host a garden party, take a morning run, treat yourself to a flower bouquet, spend a whole day hiking, discover 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'd add to the list?
What a great list of fun things to do.. I hope I get to do many of them.. We are going on a road trip and my best friend will be with me...it would be wonderful to pick fresh strawberries but that all depends on many factors..my favorite thing would be to host a garden party and I plan to host a virtual one.. but time may not allow me to plan an actual one!!! I will treat myself to a lovely bouquet just as soon as possible.. That is exactly what I need! But to be honest the morning run and all day hike just isn't me.. maybe a few laps around the walking track...I can only think of one coffee shop here in town that I haven't already enjoyed but perhaps we will discover one on our road trip! That sounds really fun! I am taking a couple of new books with me on the trip so that one should be easy..I will probably visit a new city and I will look for an ice cream shoppe.. but the swing holds no interest for me...
I would definitely add... hold my baby grand daughter on the list!
2. What's something you could do today to feel more peaceful?
Read the Bible and spend time before the Lord in prayer!
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 dish of plain chocolate...what's your pleasure?
I used to like chocolate, but lately my favorite is vanilla caramel gelato.
4. If you came with a warning what would it say?
Watch Out: Known for leg pulling
5.What's the most interesting website you've visited in the last week?
I have to go along with our host's I love pinterest, but haven't been there this week!
6.Spring, summer, autumn, winter...which season are you? Why?
I am definitely not summer, although when I had my colors done I was told that I am summer.. I detest hot, humid weather. I would say autumn.... I am a very expectant kind of person.. I look forward to autumn so much... the changing colors, the slower pace, the crisp cool air.. the season we like to travel and especially go to the beach.... it is a mellow time for sitting by a fire and enjoying a glass of wine and a good book or just curling up in a sweater and enjoy the front porch minus the mosquitoes!
7."You lose sight of things...and when you travel, everything balances out." ~Daranna Gidel
Would you agree with that sentiment? Explain why or why not.
We don't travel that much and it is easy to get in a rut always living one day much like another that we do lose perspective of life, time, events etc... I was reminded of our trip to Ireland last year... I am reminded about it every time I see an English landscape .. slow pace,, the simplicity of the remote areas I love so much. The Hub bub of the cities and the varying delights to be had around each new corner.. no different yet so much the same as what we experience. On our road trip it will be much the same as we will travel to a different quadrant of the country and it broadens our thinking in the new personalities we will encounter.. Travel is a great experience and one not to be missed... Now to convince hubby!
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I am so looking forward to some unspoken joys in the coming days!!!
