I am kicking off my writing week with SHARE YOUR WORLD 2016. In this challenge our hostess Cee asks us five questions and in answering we share our worlds with each other. You can click the underlined link to see all the contributions to the challenge.
Here are the questions for the week and my answers:
If you could hire someone to help you, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work?
I actually am in the process of hiring someone right now to help me with several projects around the house. It’s not yard work exactly but the old place needs a new front porch and new gutters. The chimney needs to be relined and reappointed. The whole place needs a fresh coat of paint and the masonry on our stone porch needs some help. Can you say home equity loan?
What makes you laugh the most?
I think lunch time with the church staff is the most hilarious time of day for me. We all work under such high stress levels that lunch time becomes the time of day we can really cut loose and release the tension.
You are probably thinking that a church job should not be stressful; After all, pastors only work one day a week, right? Well that is not really so, particularly in this cultural climate. People are hurting and in need and daily we deal with some pretty emotionally difficult situations. Being able to laugh keeps us going.
A merry heart does good, like medicine,
But a broken spirit dries the bones. Prov. 17:22
What was your favorite food when you were a child?
Macaroni & Cheese with hot dogs.
List at least five favorite flowers or plants.
I could go on but these five will do.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful to have had the privilege to perform my cousin’s wedding last week.Weddings usually make me so nervous but I was actually pretty relaxed through this one.
This week is going to be a little nuts. With the winter storm last night I lost a rehearsal for one of my concerts this week and the week was already tight as it was. I am looking forward to Sunday afternoon and the week being done.
