My favorite something pink to drink is Pink Lemonade. Haven't had any since last summer so I really think I need to make some soon.
My favorite something pink that I can't consume is a cover I have for my treadle sewing machine.
2. What did you enjoy most about gym class when you were in school? How about the least?
We didn't do gym in our school, however I don't think I would have liked it at all. As it was recess was something I dreaded. I much preferred my books than being outside and participating in games.
3. What memory is brought to mind by the smell of roses?
I can't smell roses. However I really like them, and one memory that always comes to mind when I see roses is how LV gave me a beautiful rose from his prized rosebush. It was the only rose ever to be cut from it. I dried it and still have it tucked in a nice little box.
4. Do you prefer to read or write?
That all depends on what kind of mood I'm in.
Some days I love entering the world of friends that live between the covers of a book, and other days there are some characters in my head that simply have to have their story told and I have no choice but write.
5. Sam Keen is quoted as saying, 'Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability.' Would you agree? Is laziness ever respectable? How will you be lazy this summer?
Heat saps all the energy from me and I slow down. I wouldn't necessarily label it as being lazy, more of a survival mode.
I don't think actual laziness is ever respectable.
This summer I'll be trying to get quite a lot of writing done.
6. The Florida Keys, Disney World, or a resort somewhere on the Gulf Coast...which Florida destination would you choose (and why) if the trip were today?
Disney World is out for me. I don't enjoy crowds or standing in lines. I have always wanted to see the Florida Keys someday, though not during the summer. It's hot enough where we live that I don't want to visit somewhere that's even hotter.
7. What question do you hate to answer?
How much do you weigh?
I absolutely refuse to answer that question, and thankfully the state we live in now does not require your weight to be on your driver's license. I used to really, really dislike having it on display for anyone asking for ID when we lived in Missouri.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
On Sunday I saw something I had never seen before since we live here. I had to go pick up LV and Sailor after their day of hiking which required me to drive on a very narrow dirt road that had trees growing on both sides. Their branches touched above the road creating a tunnel of sorts. The little bit of sunlight that filtered down through it gave a mellow light. That would have been pretty enough, but what made it so much better was that there were hundreds, if not thousands of butterflies fluttering about.
Sunbeam had gone with me, and she was absolutely speechless, something that hardly ever happens.
Once we were through she got her voice back, though it was dripping in awe. "Mom, that was absolutely magical!"
I'm still kicking myself that I had not taken the camera along.
