This week Sparks asks some more light-hearted questions. Here are my answers.
Can you bake a cake? (credit for this question goes to Di, who asked it on her post
recently. Thanks Di! After last week’s SYW, we needed a little bit of sweet and light!)
Yes, I can bake a cake but I seldom do.
What’s one thing that can instantly make your day better?
Seeing the birds in my garden
When you were a kid, did you eat the crusts on your sandwich or not?
No, sandwiches with crusts go stale faster, don’t they? I refused to eat my sandwiches if they had crusts on them. I was an indulged child – for a while my mom would make me ‘rainbow’ sandwiches without crusts but I went off those too and refused to eat anything at school. I would come home starving and have sardines on toast and a cup of cocoa.
What’s something your family would be surprised to learn about you?
I enjoy alone time but that doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy their company too!
AND (of course)
GRATITUDE IS AN ATTITUDE!
Please feel free to share some gratitude from this past week (or month or year). This is purely optional of course, but it does tend to uplift everyone (I happen to think) to read some happy and/or joyful thoughts or view some uplifting pictures. Thank you if you do so!
Six weeks ago a routine blood test showed that both the Earl and I had pre-diabetic levels of sugar. The integrative doctor who we’re consulting tweaked our diet, put us on some supplements and recommended taking a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in hot water every morning. And it worked! She tested our sugar levels yesterday and we’re both within normal range! For this, I am hugely grateful.
