Oh Monday Listicles, how I’ve missed you so!
Seriously, I love Stasha’s lists and have been really bummed to have been too busy/exhausted/stressed for the past few weekends so I’m very to be back. And I love this week’s format of random questions. I always have fun reading these kinds of posts and learning more about other people – hope you enjoy mine!
1. Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 23, and find line 4. What is it?
I cheated a little on this one so the whole statement would make sense.
Breath is aligned to both body and mind and it alone is the tool which can bring both together, illuminating both and bringing both peace and calm.
– The Miracle of Mindfulness by Thich Nhat Hanh
2. How many times a day do you say Hi?
Hmm…maybe once or twice. I don’t get out much.
3. Have you ever worn a uniform?
Yes, green plaid skirts and white shirts from 1st through 8th grade. We wanted to have a ceremonial fire and burn them at our 8th grade graduation but didn’t have the guts – lol!
4. What do you think about the most?
Several thoughts and subjects are often on my mind: my older son, our family moving to CO., my toddler starting preschool next year, when am I going to have time to write, how can I schedule my days better…
5. How many keys are on your keyring?
Car and house keys.
6. What was the last thing you bought?
This super cute, colorful purse for $3, second hand. It just makes me feel happy to look at it.
7. Are you growing anything these days?
No but I would love to someday have a garden grow some of our own food.
8. What is under your bed?
A monster! But a cute one, like these:
9. What is most important in life?
Health, happiness and love.
10. What is the strangest word you used this week?
I was watching old episodes of The Trailer Park Boys on Netflix and there is a character that can’t read very well and always pronounces words incorrectly.
In this episode, he thinks jalapeno is pronounced “ja-lap-in-oes”. I could not stop giggling so of course, I’ve been trying to use “jalapinoes” as often as possible.
*Super funny show if you are not easily offended. Very politically incorrect but you grow to love the characters. Well, I did anyway. So you’ve been warned!
