1. June 23rd is National Pink Day. What's your favorite something pink? I'm not a fan of pink. I do like it a little bit when it's as pale as it can be and it's a flower.
2. What did you enjoy most about gym class when you were in school? How about the least? I don't really remember liking anything about gym class when I was in high school (we didn't have it until then) but I do remember the thing I liked the least: those stupid one piece gym outfits. UGH.
3. What memory is brought to mind by the smell of roses? Most flowers remind me that I am allergic. Haha They also remind me of my grandmother. She LOVED flowers and her yard was full of them! She had roses out there and I have a rose bush from a cutting she gave me decades ago. I remember roses in Grandmother's decor too. But she, and I'm just like her on this, did not bring the flowers inside the house. She wanted them to grow and wouldn't cut them to watch them die.
4. Do you prefer to read or write? Now that depends totally on my mood.
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? I believe it's respectable when it's too hot to move. Like it is now. I've been quite successful at being lazy this summer. I've hardly moved out of the chair. LOL
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? I am NOT going anywhere that hosts temps hotter than they are here. No thank you! However, if you had added Terri's house or Barb's house, somewhere like that, I'd go. Even to Florida. :)
7. What question do you hate to answer? How's it going? What does that even mean? How's WHAT going? My life? My summer? My job? WHAT????
8. Insert your own random thought here. Most of you have heard about the tragedy that hit Charleston last week. I'm not going to go into a lot of stuff y'all have already seen and heard here and there. I haven't even posted my thoughts yet. There's just too much going around in my mind about it still. However, there has been some lovely art pieces created out of this tragedy that I would like to share:
This was created by an elementary aged daughter of a friend of a friend after the mother told her children what had happened:
This is my favorite but I still haven't been able to discover the artist's name (if anyone knows, please share because I'd love to have a t-shirt with this on it):
Some of you have already seen this piece that was created by my niece. She had prints made and, if you click the picture, you can order one. ALL profits go to the nine families who lost loved ones last Wednesday. So far, she's raised over $20,000!
Have a wonderful rest of the week, y'all.
