borrowed questions

I have a lengthy to do list today, and time to conjur up a blog topic just can't be squeezed onto that list in a timely way. So, I'm borrowing questions from Kate at Chronicles of a Country Girl for today's fodder. I do like that word.

1. What’s your favorite magazine?
We have eliminated subscriptions from the budget for the time being, but there are times I just can't resist a magazine at the grocery checkout line. What I bring home most often is Cooking Light, so perhaps that ought to be considered a favorite.

2. What book are you currently reading?
To be honest I'm not reading these days--I'm busy writing! Newsletters, policy statements, emails, and other assorted work-related stuff. I really need to carve out time to read and make it a habit. The book to which I am eager to return is Introverts in the Church.

3. What activity recharges your inner battery?
Ah, that's easy. Anything creative, especially if it doesn't have a deadline attached to it. I'm enjoying making the rehearsal dinner invitations, but those have really got to get into the mail soon. Fortunately I'm still waiting for a handful of addresses, so I am buying time.

4. Do you remember your favorite show/cartoon when you were very little?
I don't know about favorite, but Sky King (and his niece, Penny!) comes quickly to mind, and with Captain Kangaroo right behind it.

5. What do you usually eat for breakfast?
Yogurt. I used to be faithful preparing oatmeal with flax seeds and raisins, but I got out of the habit.

Anyone else want to play?

I've gotten out of the habit of oatmeal too - I should start doing it more regularly. I LIKE it, I just usually want something more savory in the mornings instead of sweet (the complete opposite of how I was when I was a child).

Let's see...

I don't subscribe to any magazines either, but do enjoy receiving Bits N Pieces, which is full of quotes.

I am finally reading Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon.

Probably being able to be at home, out on the deck in the sunshine reading.

Favorite show when I was little was probably Bewitched!

I eat Fiber One cereal, sprinkled with Splenda, and raisins on top with Vanilla Silk Soy Milk and LOVE it.

Okay, here goes--
I get "Newsweek" and "Christian Century" and "Sojourners."

I'm currently reading "The Book of Love," which follows "The Expected one."

Recharging is reading, walking, praying.

When I was a little girl, I liked "Wagon Train."

I usually eat a bowl of raisin bran for breakfast.

Favorite magazine is People. I'm pretty shallow sometimes.

I don't have time to read books - I tend to read newspapers or news sites on the web.

Recharging is sleeping, usually in the morning when everyone is out of the house is when I get my best sleep.

My favorite show when I was little was Fred Kirby's Little Rascals show. It was on every Sunday after church and I couldn't wait to get home from church to see my Little Rascals.

I don't eat breakfast often. I know that's not good, but when I do it is usually a bowl of Cheerios with a banana.
