Here are this week's questions:
1. When you think about your future what do you fear most? Hope for the most?
Honestly, I try not to fear.
"For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."
(2 Timothy 1:7)
Or how about, "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me." (from Psalm 23)

As for hope, I know this isn't the sort of hope the question is asking about, but this verse sprang to my mind: "Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior, Jesus Christ." (Titus 2:13)
2. September is National Chicken Month. How often is chicken on the menu at your house?
What's a favorite dish made with chicken?
We love chicken salad. I cook chicken breasts in the slow cooker, then chop or shred the meat. I usually add some chopped celery and some chopped dried cranberries in addition to mayo, seasonings, etc. Seasoning will always include a generous dash of poultry seasoning. This is on my mind because I just made sandwiches to take to a couple of occasions -- and chicken salad was the filling of choice.
What's something you're a 'chicken' about doing or trying?
Parallel parking and city driving.
3. What are three things you don't own but wish you did?
Hmm... I think a Cricut machine would be fun to have, but I have no idea when I would ever find time to use it. A smart phone might be rather fun also, but I can do almost as much with my tablet and I almost never use the cell phone I do have. So truthfully, I can't think of anything I don't own that I wish I did.

I would rather be a jack of all trades. I enjoy doing a lot of different things fairly well, though I must admit I am a master of none.

5. Ketchup or mustard?
Mustard. I like any mustard, but enjoy trying different and interesting varieties of this condiment.

Ham sandwiches, hot dogs, fried egg sandwiches ... mostly things that I seldom eat any more. Occasionally I will put ketchup on french fries, but seldom use that.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
We're experiencing a rip-roaring thunderstorm as I write this on Tuesday night. Torrential rain, too. Last week was unseasonably cold, today warm and humid. One just never knows with New England weather.
