How about you?
1) What is sneaking up on you, and what have you been thinking about?
For a change, Valentine's Day is NOT sneaking up on me! Thanks to the leisure of unemployment I had time to revive an old tradition of making valentines for the beloveds in my life. That list has exploded with a new generation of wee folk in the lives of the aforementioned. Cards are made, treats bagged and tagged, and a trip to the post office is in order this morning to ship everything out.
2) What will you have for lunch today?
Leftover chicken satay made for our super bowl grazing adventure.
3) If you were to get snowed in for two days, and you need to hunker down, what essentials and treats would you store up?
I'd be busy making soup and baking bread. Nothing says tucked in comfort like the aroma of both coming from the kitchen.
4) Tell me a story about one awesome thing you have experienced in the last couple of weeks.
I had an experience of spiritual rejuvenation several days ago, and that--coupled with the extended benefits of it--was pretty awesome. I'm on a vocational roller-coaster, a journey that is wearing me out, but God managed to get through and settle some peace on me that I didn't anticipate. I am really trying to keep fear at bay through this ride, and working hard to connect the dots of my life to help me find a road map forward. For now, I'm beyond grateful for the peace, and more than grateful for the friends who continue to keep company with me on this desolate road.
5) What is your favorite office supply to splurge on? (now THAT is random, right?)
I'm a recovering office supply junkie, with a stash of post-its (and other goodies) overflowing from my desk drawer. There's no room for supplies any longer in my office, so I have, out of necessity, applied a self-imposed ban on such purchases. Reality has sapped the thrill from the splurge, which I see as a good thing.
