This week's questions revolve around a theme of perfection.
1. What is one area of your life where you're a perfectionist? Is that a good thing?
I could be considered a recovering perfectionist, I suppose. I grew up with the idea that if one couldn't do something perfectly, one shouldn't even attempt it. But really, I have grown beyond that erroneous notion and I think I can say I'm really not a perfectionist in any area of life at this point. I am perfectly [oops!] happy "winging it". I've come to regard perfectionism as a character flaw.
A friend and I once discussed quilting (which she is expert at, and I am not) and she suggested that perfectionism was important to quilting. I don't think that I completely agree. I would say accuracy is important, crucially important, in quilting and a number of other endeavors, but not perfectionism.
2. What's something you find perfectly ridiculous?
Grandparents who require grandchildren to call them by their first name and who persist in dressing (and acting) like teenagers. There are a number of other things I find perfectly ridiculous in today's society and political climate, but in the interest of being kind I will not mention them.
3. What's a skill you've developed by way of that old fashioned saying, 'practice makes perfect?
Planning and preparing so every part of a meal is ready at the same time.
4. What's your idea of a perfect breakfast?

5. What's a trip, holiday, vacation, or day outing you've taken that you'd rate a perfect 10? Tell us why.
6. What quote or saying perfectly sums up your life right now? If you can't do perfect, how about one that comes close?
"Life is what happens while you're making other plans." Not perfect; it just comes a little bit close. We're trying to make plans for a visit to our daughter and family out West -- and real life goes on. Busy real life.
7. How would you spend $300 today?
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Today [that is, Tuesday, when I am writing this] has been one of those days. Phone calls, people stopping by, UPS delivery, and more. Trying to add some maple sugaring and St. Patrick's Day touches to my decor. Just a busy day. There are so many other things I wish I'd gotten to, but the day is winding down. Good thing I'm not a perfectionist! Just trusting God for every day.
