From This Side of the Pond. Head on over and get the questions, answer them on your own blog and then go back to Joyce's and link up!
Here are this week's questions:
1. Do you try to set rules for yourself about how you use your time? Explain.
I try to use my time very wisely, but I don't think I set actual rules for myself in using it. Sometimes I think I should, though.
2. Monday was National Lighthouse Day. Have you ever visited a lighthouse? If not, do you have any desire to see one up close?
I have visited several lighthouses in person, several in Maine and at least one on Prince Edward Island.
|Pemaquid Point, Maine|
Lindau Lighthouse (Germany), Fanad Lighthouse (Ireland), Portland Head Light (Maine), Yaquina Bay Light (Oregon) The St. Augustine Light (Florida), Peggy's Point Lighthouse (Canada), Start Point Lighthouse (England), Tower of Hercules (Spain), Bass Harbor Head Station (Maine), and White Shoal Light (Michigan)?
I have actually visited two of these -- Portland Head Light and Bass Harbor Head Light. Any of the others would be fun to visit, but I think I might choose the one in Oregon because we have not yet been to that coast.
|Pemaquid Point Light, Bristol, Maine|
Not sure how to answer this. It sort of depends on the length of the trip, I guess. Maybe the New Hampshire state line?
3. What have you unintentionally stopped doing? Is this something you need to pick back up and begin again, or is it something you need to let go of for now (or even permanently)?
Drinking kombucha on a daily basis. I couldn't find it easily in grocery stores in Nevada. My daughter did buy us some at a health food store, partway through our visit. Thankfully there is a fridge full of it waiting here at home, so I can pick it back up. It's a healthy habit, for me at least.
4. We've had a full week of August. Share a GRAND moment from your month so far.
The week was full of GRAND moments as we spent it (and the week previous) with seven of our grandkids -- six who live in Nevada, and one New Hampshire teenager whom we brought with us.

|Near Balanced Rock, Castleford, Idaho|
Honestly, I can't think of any song that I "love" which meets that criteria. But below is a baby that we love -- Jerusha, whom we met in person for the first time this visit.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
We have had a great two weeks of vacation in Nevada, Utah, and Idaho. Now it's time to get back into the responsibilities and realities of everyday life.
