I have some time to join SHARE YOUR WORLD WEEK 42 this week. I have loved Cee’s 5 weekly questions pretty much since the beginning of my time here in the blogosphere.
If you are new to blogging why don’t you click the link above and traipse on over to Cee’s place. Her challenges are some fun.
Here are this week’s questions and my answers
If you wanted to de-clutter where you live, what room / space would you start with? (And why, if you’re feel like admitting to it.)
I have to do some of this this afternoon. I will start in the work room. I managed to de-clutter a few months ago and as always the workroom has become cluttered once again with all the junk I haven’t had time to put away over the last several weeks.
If you want to remember something important, how do you do it (sticky note on the fridge, string around your finger, etc.), and does it work?
I live by my daily planner. If it doesn’t get into the planner it doesn’t happen. As long as it makes the daily schedule though it usually gets done even if that does not happen in the exact hour it is placed in.
If you could create a one room retreat just for yourself, what would be the most important sense to emphasize: sight (bright natural light, dim light, etc.), hearing (silence, music, fountain, etc.), smell (candles, incense, etc), touch (wood, stone, soft fabrics, etc.), or taste (herbal tea, fresh fruit, etc.)?
I guess that would depend on what I am trying to retreat from. I guess I will consider this a retreat from busyness and the noise of the office. I will say the most important consideration is sound. Music must be soft or I must have silence and solitude in order to recoup. I try to do three mini retreats a day (about 10 minutes a piece). Silence and solitude are absolutely essential to these times. Here is the type of music I sometimes listen to.
If you could interview one of your great-great-great grandparents, who would it be (if you know their name) and what would you ask?
I would like to interview my great great and so forth grandfather Lorenzo Tandy who was a minister in my region during the late 1800’s. I would ask him about his call to ministry and about how he carried that call out in his time.
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 that we had a very successful art show here at Cornerstone. This week I am looking forward to being a little quieter.
