So glad you joined the fun today!
Add a link to your post at the bottom of mine and do be sure to visit your neighbors.
1. Your favorite chocolate treat?
Such a hard question right off the bat...I am going to say German Chocolate cake which combines my love of chocolate with my love of coconut.
2. What more than anything else makes you feel loved?
Being treated with kindness and respect. Having my strengths acknowledged and encouraged and my weaknesses forgiven.
3. Cherries or blueberries?
Why are the food questions so hard for me?
I love them both and I eat a lot of blueberries. I have them on my cereal almost every morning. And I love blueberry pancakes except hold the pancake and just give me the blueberries. Sadly pancakes aren't on my diet. It seems like we get blueberries practically year round now but we don't get fresh cherries very often. I'm picturing a bowl of fresh cherries eaten outside on a sunny day and I like that picture. And dried cherries are my newest obsession so I think I'm going to say cherries.
4. What is the one trait you most want the leader of your country to posses?
Integrity-I want that person to have a moral core. I can disagree with a leader's politics yet be supportive if I feel like they are a man/woman of integrity. I have no respect for those who bend whichever way the political wind blows.
5. Are you a saver or a spender?
Here's the thing-it's hard to be a spender when you are paying university tuition. Unless of course you count buying an education as 'spending'. Here's the other thing-it's hard to be a saver when you are paying university tuition. Unless you count putting all your pennies in the bank to pay for your children's education as 'saving'. I'm kidding. Kind of. When kids go off to uni it's like someone turns on the money tap and forgets to turn it off.
I think we have a good balance between saving and spending. We plan for the future, we don't make large impulse purchases and we live within our means so overall we're a good team in this department.
6. If you gave a party for all of your friends would they already know each other?
No. There would be some overlap, kind of like that 6 degrees of separation thing, but when you've moved around as much as we have your friends are scattered far and wide. Paths cross more often than you might imagine so some of our friends know some of our friends but essentially a party with all of our friends in one place would mean lots of strangers together. Lots of really fun strangers. Sounds fantastic...we'd like to host that party!
7. Are you interested in antiques?
Yes. I like traditional furniture mixed with a few carefully chosen antiques. I would not want a house filled with only antiques but I love the way they add character and depth to a room. We have several pieces that I love but I suppose our grandfather clock is my favorite.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I think you all know I sometimes struggle with all things technical, ahem, and I'm wondering if you've seen this? My daughter showed it to me when she was home. It's a clip of the then hosts of the Today show discussing 'What is the internet?" during a commercial break. Hard to believe it was only 1994.
