A Fun Set of Questions

I had absolutely no intention of posting today. 

I need to get busy with housework, but I love my blogs, so after my time with the Lord, I popped in over at Nanaland, where Arlene posts most everyday. I love her!

And what does she do, but inspire me to post. 

Here are a set of questions she found at Magnolias and Grace, another blog to read later today.

I couldn't resist. I am going to answer those questions to. How fun! Join in everyone. If you don't have a blog pick a question or two and answer it in the comments.

Question #1
What is your favorite era from the past and why?

Hmmm... I like the 1950's. When I was young, I loved reading about that time. The people, the clothes, the cars, the people who really worked hard to make this country great after WWII and the Korean War.

Question #2
What season is your favorite?

I like early summer. I love summer because it is more relaxed than the other seasons. It just speaks of enjoying long days of sunshine. I like the early part of it before it gets too awful hot.

Question #3
What type of food do you like most? --Italian, Chinese, Mexican, Southern, etc.

I would probably say Southern cooking the most. I do love Italian though. Oh, and around our parts, we love Thai, not to be confused at all with Chinese. It is very different.

Question #4
Your favorite book is...?

Oh, this is really hard. I have tons favorites, so I am really picking, but note that there could be a top ten that would better suit me.
I really like Fannie Flagg's book, Standing in the Rainbow. You might need to read Welcome to World, Baby Girl to know all the characters though.
Since I taught school for 31 years, I am going to tell you a children's book I love too. I used this book in grades 3-5. It is Love, Ruby Lavender by Deborah Wiles. I adored this book for so many reasons.  BTW, you are never too old to read children's books.

Question #5
Do you prefer indoors or out?

I would just love to tell you I am an outdoor girl, but the truth is I am an indoor girl. I love to keep house, sew, read, and putter around inside. There is no doubt that a day in the sunshine can improve your spirit though.

Question #6
Who is the wisest person you have ever known?

That would be my great granddaddy on my mother's mother's side. He was 95 when he passed away, but I sat at his knee and observed a Godly man live out life the way it is supposed to be done. He taught me many lessons that have served me well without ever saying a word, just by watching him.

Question #7
What was the most important or memorable day in your life?

The most important was the day I asked Jesus into my life. I am so grateful to know Him!

Question #8
Your favorite season to decorate for...

Christmas is number 1.
However it would be followed by back to school, if that could be a holiday:)

Question #9
Do you have a life verse? 

Oh yes, Proverbs 16:9
The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs His steps. 
You can read more about that here.

Question #10
Share one thing that is nostalgic to you.

This one is hard too. You have too many things as you get older. I have a section in my china cabinet that holds some really sentimental items for me. I guess maybe the most precious item in there is a red plastic rose that was given to me by my dad on my last visit with him in the hospital before he passed away. 

I really enjoyed this... Join in and share something as well.

I am off to be productive in the house cleaning today,


  1. Thanks for the shout out Sandy!! I always enjoy finding out more about my friends via these little questionaires. Judy at Cranberry Morning does the Wednesday Hodgepodge almost every week and it has really been fun to get to know her through her posts.

  2. Great questions, and such precious answers! Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Sandy,
    I can't tell you how happy I am that you commented on my blog so that I could find yours- thank you so much for visiting and letting me know you had answered the questions. I have loved browsing your lovely blog and reading your answers here!
    I could not agree with you more about the 50s. It seemed like such a wonderful, memorable decade. What wise words about children's books- so true that you are never too old. I just graduated college and I think I'm probably the only person I know my age who checks out children's books at the library just to read. I majored in education so I checked them out for teaching projects, too :) But also for my personal reading. And I want to check out those Fannie Flagg books- I'vebeen wanting to read her work for a long time.
    What a special person and what wonderful memories and wisdom from your great granddaddy. How blessed we are to have such special people like that that mark our lives forever and bless us just to think of them.

    I loved reading all of your answers!
    I am delighted to visit your beautiful blog.
    I am headed to finish reading your latest post which I am enjoying so much with your pictures and your thoughts you share. What a joy to read.

    Blessings to you!


I am so glad you stopped by my little blog. Drop in again anytime.
