There is a blog that hosts a link party called Five Question Friday (I know, it is now technically Sunday). I decided to answer this week’s questions just for fun and because I hadn’t posted for a week. If you want to see other bloggers answers or link up you can visit My Little Life and join in on the fun.
The Five Questions:
If you were going to be stuck on a deserted island, which 5 books, movies, people and foods would you take along?
Books: The Bible, Forsaking All Others by Emilie Loring, Margin by Dr Swenson, a hymn book, and a poetry anthology (as a book lover narrowing down to five books is really hard, but I think this group could keep me well read and entertained until I was rescued). I should probably have a blank journal type book, but maybe I can write my stuff on the margins and the blank pages in all the other books and maybe Ty can figure out how to make paper for me. I’m sure this experience will result in a best seller.
Movies: Green Card, Baby Boom, You’ve Got Mail, Funny Farm, Mary Poppins
Food: Pizza (counts as one, right, even with several toppings), walnuts (have to get those omega threes), CHOCOLATE, tomato bisque soup, cheese, crackers. I’m assuming there will be a freshwater source and plenty of fruit on this tropical island to add to my diet, thereby making it pretty balanced.
People: this one is harder, or maybe not so much. I’d take my husband of course, he is my main support. There are a lot of people that I love dearly that I wouldn’t take for various reasons, so I’m thinking the rest of my family could be safe at home, living their lives, praying for my safe return. So, the other four that I would take – For survival etc I’d want a Doctor( Dr. Andrew Weil), a handyman (Ty Pennington), a comedian (Robin Williams or Chonda Pierce) and a minister (Billy Graham). I would take these people for what should be obvious reasons.
What is your thought on year round school?
My first instinct as a former teacher is to say no, no, no – I like my three reasons for teaching – June, July and August (off that is). However, as a former sort of Nanny for a couple of young girls that attended year round school I’d have to say that the schedule is really not that bad. All their breaks (three that were three weeks and one that was five weeks) were spread out in such a way as to feel balanced and the time off was about the same as a traditional school year. So, I could probably do that. And, it is probably better for the children.
What is your most embarrassing potty story?
I’m sure I have many…
What’s the temperature where you are?
Cold, we did have sunshine today - I think earlier I heard Mr. Piano say it was 55 – that was probably during the warmest part of the day. I had the inside temp on 73 and was still bundled up in blankets while I read a book.
Are you a winter/spring/fall/summer person?
Definitely Fall – that was the main reason (and the heat) that I was glad to move away from Florida. Have to have my October blue skies and fire leaves. Fall is also one of the main reasons that I miss my beloved Tennessee mountains. Spring would be a close second, if I needed a second runner up.
So, there you have it. Feel free to leave a comment and tell me some of your answers to these questions. And please don’t feel free to make me one of your five people as obviously I didn’t choose you – I wanted you safe at home. I still love you very much though! However, if you choose Mr. Piano, then I go with, can’t do without him.
Surviving in Grace,
