Well, it was bound to happen...I lost a draft that I spend a couple of precious hours composing! So, I will need to be brief, since my time is so limited these days! But, I am honored to receive this award, thanks to Bethany Telles. It is given to those who's blogs inspire positivity and creativity in the blogosphere. Thanks, Bethany!
Bethany has good things to say on her blog, Perched in a Tree, sharing her view of the world from a lofty vantage point. I love the fact that she sees the good in everyone...Bethany calls that a weakness. I call it a strength! She is blessed to be able to stay at home with her children.
Here are my questions:
I would have to say green. When I was younger, it was blue, but now I love sage green, seafoam green, honeydew and forest green...all the greens but olive and army. Green speaks of life, energy and renewal.
I love all animals in God's kingdom, but, right now, it's the hedgehog...my daughter owns an adorable one named Pippin.
It's seven...it always has been. The perfect number according to the Bible.
Tea! All kinds, but mostly milk oolong, Japanese Cherry, and specialty drinks such as Thai and Bubble Tea.
FACEBOOK OR TWITTER?
Even though I use both, it's Facebook that I use the most. I love to see what my friends are thinking and doing....
In writing, it's to make history and Scripture come alive for my readers, who are mostly women and children. In my daily life, I love to plan and take my family on "educational field trips" to various parts of the world. We visit locations we are studying during our homeschool year...it's history we will never forget! The trip always includes a visit to a missionary family we know in the area. This blog began as a travel log of our trips...the side bar shows some of the links.
PREFER GIVING OR GETTING PRESENTS?
I'm embarrassed to admit this...I enjoy getting gifts if it's what I need or want. So, because of this, I prefer to give to others, and spend some time studying people's preferences before I purchase a gift. Sometimes, it's something that I already own, that I know another friend or family member would appreciate.
That is a tough one for me! I love pretty patterns of all sorts...especially on vintage clothing or wallpaper. So, since they are usually floral, I'll say flowers, swirls, or any floral pattern.
FAVORITE DAY OF THE WEEK:
It used to be Fridays, the end of the work week. But now that I am home educating our teens, I would say Sundays. It's a day of rest. After church I love to come home and sit down after dinner with an inspirational book. We do that as a family for at least a hour. There is little time the rest of the week!
What flower don't I love?? Sweet peas and stargazer lilies (in my bridal bouquet) are among my favorites, but I will say my absolute fav is my birthflower: lilies of the valley.
