From This Side of the Pond. It's not too late though, to get in on the fun -- so hurry on over, copy the questions, then paste and answer them on your own blog. Then zip back over to Joyce's to link up. Here are this week's questions:
1. The last place you visited/patronized where you felt like you were given 'the royal treatment'?
Probably the York Harbor Inn during our two-day getaway in mid-April. There is just something about enjoying a bountiful buffet breakfast in a classy dining room with a view of the ocean, with cloth napkins, and a genial server replenishing your coffee.
2. The last task you completed that was a 'royal pain'?
I'm still working on completing some state-required forms, so I can't say it's actually a completed task yet -- but just selling various items as stipulated by the terms of a trust is time-consuming and wearisome.

Oh, one of those dreaded thought questions! One of my strengths (which God has grown in me over the passing of time) is the ability to persevere, plugging away at something until it's finished. That has helped me to finish handmade gifts, write kids' devotional books, blog, survive seasons of eldercare and other very difficult times. One of my worst faults is procrastination, and that has seriously hindered me from accomplishing all that I would like to.
4. If you found a remote that could rewind, fast forward, stop and start time, what would you do with it?
Throw it away.
5. Any special plans for the Memorial Day weekend? Will you in some way honor or recognize the meaning of this day (remembering people who died in service to their country)? Have you ever been to Arlington National Cemetery? Does your town do anything special to mark the day?
We're invited to a cookout on Friday night, a graduation party on Saturday afternoon -- and, if my hubby ends up with Monday off, will probably grill with our daughter and family.
We will likely take some flowers to my dad's grave -- he was a World War II veteran who sacrificed much in the service of his country. If we get together with the grandkids on Monday, maybe we'll re-read the photo book I made about him.
Yes, I have been to Arlington National Cemetery. A very moving experience.
Our town does still have a Memorial Day parade -- I just checked. Maybe if Mr. T is off from work, we will try and attend.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Trying to pull my thoughts together for a Christmas Club meeting today. It's been awhile since we met, and I haven't even found time to post in my own Christmas blog, though I have ideas for posts. It'll be fun to get together, anyway.
