NATIONAL CROISSANT DAYWell, I do agree with your statement that you love croissants when they are fresh, but day-old croissants need to be turned into a donut. I happen to really like all the croissants offered at the le Madeleine and that sounds like a good place to have breakfast this Wednesday. So... how do you like your croissants? What is your favorite way to eat them?
A plain fresh croissant, alongside an omelet or scrambled eggs and bacon are good, but a fresh croissant with dark chocolate or an almond filling is just heavenly!
2. Speaking of food... How do you handle stress?
Speaking of food? It would be chocolate.
3. Out of the negative emotions of greed, anger, jealousy, and hate, which one would you say affects you the most?
Anger is probably one I feel most these days. We are living in a time of angry and hateful people bent on destroying others. I am so sad with the direction our country is going, especially when I see that efforts are being made to tend to problems, but there seems to be an agenda adding to the problems and leading us to a path of destruction. I feel helpless because I wish I could do something about the problems and the people who are causing them and creating even more problems for our children. The callous abortion ruling and and ... well, I could go on and on, but I will stop here.
4. Out of the positive emotions of compassion, positivity, enthusiasm, and initiative, which one is your biggest strength?
I still remain positive knowing that God is in control and my faith in Him will bring the peace to sustain us through good and bad.
5. What do you get every time you go grocery shopping, other than the staples such as bread, milk, butter, flour, sugar...
orange juice and bottled water. They are staples at our house.
6. Please tell us something random about your week so far.
Jack was over this last Saturday and Sunday. He’s such a sweet and fun boy! I noticed many little things about him such as picking up litter left by others in the parking lot and trashing it. He returned a cart someone left in a parking space, he holds the door open for me and others. We went to the park so he could ride his hover-board and he offered to let someone else try it, which made me a little nervous. (You can fall on those things!)
I laughed embarrassingly when he and DH came out of the men’s restroom at church and Jack said, “Grandpa, you forgot to wash your hands!” He made him go back in to do that. Poor Grandpa. He can’t remember so many things these days. I loved when Jack told us the Bible story they talked about in church and he repeated his memory verse. All our grandkids are honor roll kids at school and good students. It is so pleasing to watch them as they grow up. Hard to believe the sweet baby I carried upstairs and around the house is now able to carry a case of water upstairs for me.
Showing off his skill. He can really move on this thing and even go uphill!
Problem right here is there are some big cracks in this stretch of sidewalk and you
remember that old proverb, "step on a crack?"
Roll over the crack and fall down.
