Great Blue Heron

Cee’s questions for this week; I hope you’ll share your answers, too!

Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)?
I only know my oldest brother claims to have picked my name.

Music or silence while working?
Depends on what I’m doing, however, I’ll listen to birds singing any time. 

If you had a special place for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronics, people or animals), what would they be?
I referred to Cee’s anwer for clarity on this question–she’s looking for what items (aside from these listed) are special.
1) Art supplies
2) Quilts handed down through family
3) My botanical garden membership (a gift from a friend)

The Never List: What are things you know you never will do?
Bungee jumping, aerial acrobatics, get control of my email, get hubby to hike overnight…

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Thankful for warm days and walks at the botanical garden, more of the same! 


Friday’s Hunt v3.12

Friday’s Hunt 

This week at Eden Hills we’re hunting for Starts with L, Week’s Favorite, and antique. If you haven’t been over to see the spring goat kids, you’d better get a move on! Just click the link at the end of the post.

Week’s Favorite: Saw this today at Norfolk Botanical Garden

Starts with L: Lunch (Some of you may have seen this on Facebook.) Bahama Breeze restaurant, Quesadilla and House Salad with Island Vinaigrette. Mmmm!

Antique: I could make this easy and post a selfie…
…but, instead, this is some of the antique furniture found in the 1886 Roanoke River Lighthouse which has been restored and now resides in Edenton, NC.

Here are Cee’s questions for this week. I hope you’ll share your answers, too.

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
That would depend on the day. Some days I’d be the 5-year-old who wants ice cream for dinner, some days I’d like to attempt things I could do physically when I was 30, once in awhile, I feel my real age–or beyond! 

So, you’re on your way out and it’s raining. Do you know where your umbrella is or do you frantically search for it all over your apartment/house?
No, I’d have on my Eddie Bauer raincoat with a hood.

Do you recharge your energy by going out with friends for a good time or by spending quiet time alone?
I typically recharge spending quite time alone, but if I haven’t seen my friends in awhile, they provide the little extra spark.

Name three things you and your spouse, partner, or best friend  to have in common.
1) We have the same address
2) We both like NCIS
3) We prefer to take the road less traveled

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful I got to attend the women’s ministry brunch last Saturday; I’m getting a slow-and-steady start on spring cleaning, and look forward to feeling better and accomplishing things. I’m trying something different, I’ve broken the cleaning projects into categories. I’m starting with floors, taking my time; then I’ll move onto another category. It doesn’t seem so
overwhelming this way.

This week’s prompts: Starts with K, Week’s Favorite, and Drink.

K is for colorful Kure Beach, NC

Week’s Favorite–A rare visitor to our yard–Cedar Waxwing

Drink–American Robin and House Sparrow stop by for a drink after work–it’s a tough job to reclaim one’s territory in the spring.

Here are Cee’s questions for this week, are you ready? 

Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?
No, only once. It’ll get there when it gets there. 

Do you plan out things usually or do you do them more spontaneous (For example, if you are visiting a big city you don’t know.)
We tend to start out with a plan, but not so rigid we can’t make room for spontaneity. 

Describe yourself in at least four uplifting words.
Friendly, joyful, sincere, encouraging.

If you had a choice which would be your preference salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, ocean cruise, hot tub, ski resort or desert?
Tough choice for me between the salt-water beach and fresh-water lake. The vastness of the ocean keeps life in perspective, but the lake is less crowded (typically).

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
It wasn’t losing an hour of sleep! LOL I feel like I got a lot accomplished last week, and I’m looking forward to a slower pace this week. 

Now it’s YOUR turn to Share YOUR World! Love to hear from you.



Friday’s Hunt v3.10

This week we are searching for Starts with J, Week’s Favorite, and Bird or Wings

Starts with J: The Blue Jay wasn’t cooperating this week, so I snapped a shot of the Yellow-rumped Warbler on the JOB–ever protecting his territory. He’s fluffed his feathers to keep warm, and it makes him look SO MUCH BIGGER. This is my Favorite, and also fills the bill for Bird and Wings!
