Monday Quiz About Me
Here's a fun blog hop that can be personalized to each person's taste. There are four questions for everyone to answer, then the option to add a fifth question for visitors to answer. If it peaks your interest, Heather at Acting Balanced would love to have you give it a try.
1. What is your favorite memory you made while on walk?
I usually go on walks early in the morning with my son, I leave the car at our local Winn-Dixie and walk the rest of the way to his school. We have some of the funniest conversations during those walks! I also have the memories of walking our dog Tobey who is gone, and now of walking Molly. It's fun to see her curiosity as she sniffs every spot on our walk through the neighborhood.
2. Do you prefer to live in the city, suburbs or country? Why?
I would love to live in the country, with all the wide open spaces and fresh air! I've lived in the city and I hated it. I now live in the suburbs and I do like our little town a lot, but it's still too many houses close to each other. I'd love to have some land, a nice big piece to plant stuff.
3. Post the cutest kid/pet/whatever picture you have taken lately?
This is Froggy. Froggy got on our patio door during Tropical Storm Isaac. I guess the rain was too much for him ;)
4. What is your favorite recipe made with apples?
Apple pie. I've made it, I love it, and I could eat it everyday, but my stubborn family doesn't care for it. :P
And for my question:
5. When do you start your Christmas shopping (remember, it's only 3 months away!)?
I start Christmas shopping now, in September. I like having all or most of my Christmas shopping done before Thanksgiving, and anything that's left to be bought I try to do online. I hate going to the mall in December. It's too crowded for my taste.
I'm first and foremost a Bible believing Christian. I'm a mother of 3, learning to deal with the changes God is doing in my life, learning to lean on Him and trust Him even when I don't understand, and learning to accept the changes He sees fit to accomplish His purpose in my life.
"I can't imagine anything more terrible than getting to the end of my life only to discover that God had so much more in mind for me - more freedom, more joy, more peace, more true effectiveness. And I had missed it all, simply because I refused to change." - Joanna Weaver, Having a Mary Spirit.
"In every change He faithful will remain." - Katharina von Schlegel
"Nothing paralyzes our lives like the attitude that things can never change. We need to remind ourselves that God can change things. Outlook determines outcome. If we see only the problems, we will be defeated; but if we see the possibilities in the problems, we can have victory." - Warren Wiersbe
