From This Side of the Pond. Go 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. What would you say is your biggest day to day challenge?
Trying to keep my priorities in good order and my head above water. Most days I feel I'm drowning in responsibilities.
|Prayer is one of my priorities.|
Hmmm ... it's been awhile since I read a biography. A long while, since I can't even remember one I enjoyed reading. Nope, not a genre I read regularly, though sometimes I will pick one up.
3. How important is keeping a clean house? Do you need to de-clutter your life?
The old saying "my home is clean enough to be healthy and messy enough to be happy" (or something like that) probably applies to me. I do like a clean house, but usually it isn't a top priority to have things spotless. Neat enough, especially in the downstairs, but not spotless. Yes, I do need to declutter my life AND my home. I have a couple of areas in the living room -- a cedar chest and a large round table -- that I've been able to keep free of flat-surface clutter for many weeks now. Pretty pleased about that. Lots and lots more decluttering to do, however.
4. You're the 8th dwarf. What's your name?
I spent a little time thinking about this question -- probably more time than it warranted. I came up with a few possibilities, but in the end I decided to go with my first choice -- Ornery.

This is completely God's doing and to His glory, but the pre-salvation me would be very surprised to see how happy and fulfilling my life has been.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Had a great weekend, with an overnight getaway in Vermont on Friday/Saturday, a good day in church Sunday and a fun time of celebrating our son-in-law's birthday and Mother's Day on Sunday evening. Hopefully in a day or two I can write a post about our wonderful getaway.
