1. What takes you out of your comfort zone?
2. Your least favorite spice?
Anise. I cannot stand licorice and that spice takes just like it. Yuck!
3. What’s a small change you’d like to make?
Hmm…. You are totally going to laugh. I would like to organize the space under my stove ~ especially all those cutting boards and cookie sheets. It always seems like a mess whenever I try to put one of said items away. I’m also thinking I might like to add shelves to my study.
4. Do you enjoy visiting historic homes? If so, of the homes you’ve visited which one was your favorite? What historic home near you is open to visitors? Have you been? Southern Living rounded up eleven of the best in the southern part of the US and they’re as follows-
Monticello (Jefferson’s home in Virginia), Nathaniel Russel House (Charleston SC), Swan House (Atlanta), Ernest Hemingway’s home (Key West), The Biltmore (Vanderbilt home in Asheville NC), Mount Vernon (Washington’s home in Virgina), San Francisco Plantation (Garyville, Louisiana), Windsor Ruins (Port Gibson Mississippi), Longue Vue House and Gardens (New Orleans), Whitehall (Palm Beach FL), and Pebble Hill Plantation (Thomasville GA)
Have you been to any on the list? Of the homes listed which would you most like to visit?
I guess I’d enjoy visiting them. I do love history and I enjoy historical fiction as well. However, I don’t have a lot of experience visiting these sites. I have visited Monticello ~ twice. I really loved it the first time and found it redundant the second time. Guess my answer to this would be much like a teenager ~ ‘meh.’
5. What’s something you think will be obsolete in ten years? Does that make you sad or glad?
Paper invitations. I will admit that online invitations are easy and convenient. I have used them myself. However, I do believe that real invitations delivered by mail are special. They make the event feel more special, in my opinion. I think we will continue to lose more and more ‘old fashioned’ communication in the name of progress. Much the way that we seem to be losing handwritten letters in favor of email or messaging through social media. Yes, it makes me a little sad. No matter the inconvenience to the sender, I still believe that people love to be on the receiving end of those letters.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
So, I have traditionally started my Christmas decorating the day after Thanksgiving. However, this year I am not hosting Thanksgiving at my house so I am considering getting a jump on it earlier in the week. What’s your opinion on when you should start decorating? Do you insist on waiting until after Thanksgiving or do you think it’s all fair game now?
So tell me, how would you answer these questions? Leave me a comment below to let me know that you stopped by. 🙂
Until next time~
