Wednesday Hodgepodge



1. Under what circumstances do you do your best thinking?  Probably when I am relaxed and not under a deadline, when I can ponder things and pray about the situation. 

2. Are you a risk taker? What's one big risk you've taken?  No I'm not a risk taker.  I like to plan things out and know the outcome.

3. Some of the
most common phobias according to the National Institute for Mental Health are-fear of spiders (arachnaphobia), snakes (ophidiophobia), heights (acrophobia), fear of spaces from which escape is difficult (agoraphobia), fear of thunder and lightening (astrophobia), fear of dogs (cynophobia), injections (trypanophobia), social situations, flying (pteromerhanophobia) and fear of germs and dirt (mysophobia). True phobias affect only about 10% of adults, but of those listed which would you rate as your greatest fearI have always had a fear of big dogs since I was attacked by a Doberman when I was a little girl.  Every time I see one I get a feeling of caution inside.  I also fear snakes, just because I don't like them! 

4. Are you settled or do you feel the need to move somewhere new?  I feel settled here and like our home and community.  We've been here for 3.5 years now.

5. What is something you find annoying when dining in a restaurant?  It is annoying to me when the server comes by too many times, like if he/she doesn't have many tables and keeps coming to our table to see if we need anything. 

6. Daffodil yellow, sunset orange, spring green, or sky blue...your favorite color this time of year?  There is for sure a lot of color this time of year.  I love to look up and see the clear blue sky.  It is particularly noticeable to me after we've had a day with a dust storm. 

7. If you were going to take a holiday all by yourself, where would you go?  I can't imagine going anywhere all by myself!  My husband always does the driving and figures out how to get around places.  I'd be lost if he wasn't with me probably!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

The end of the school year is nearly here.  I made a countdown for Caleb using balloons.  I blew up balloons and each day at the end of the day he gets to pop one.  I think he will be excited to see it when he gets home.  I got teary eyed in church the other day when I thought how I needed to make his "welcome to summer ___ grader" sign;  thinking of having a 5th grader is just hard to believe! 
 
Have a day of blessings!
