Friday Five

A long while back, I used to be a faithful player to the "Friday Five."  That's five questions posted on Fridays for RevGal bloggers, and we respond and post our thoughts.  Feeling the urge to play today, so here are their questions and my answers!

1. A color that you enjoy (and where you find it) - maybe it's because I was recently on vacation, but I enjoy the color blue...specifically Caribbean blue found rippling around the U.S. Virgin Islands.
2. A food or drink you have discovered recently that is just da bomb!  Last October, I discovered (through the generosity of a friend) the Spiced Caramel Apple Cider at Starbuck's....taste of world peace, people!
3. A simile for tiredness - Tiredness is like a slow leak in your tire.
4. A random picture from your phone, camera or computer - hard to choose, but I love this pic of a little boy in our church and me.  Somehow, we both ended up looking at the camera and smiling at the same time...a rare occurrence indeed.

5. Your least favorite bill: car mechanic, dentist or plumber?  Car mechanic!
BONUS: If you are going to have a Lenten practice or discipline, what is it? If you have a book or on-line resource, be sure to share it!
This one is a little scary because if I write it, I will have to do it.  I've got a few things happening at church, but for me personally, I will be participating in a book study on-line (I hope with the facebook group called New Benedictine Community).  We are looking at a book called "Awareness" by Anthony deMello.  But, the practice that will likely be hardest is keeping my mouth shut.  I very much want to cease and desist saying negative things about individuals.  
So, that is my Friday Five!


  1. My weekly book study at our church just finished reading and discussing "Awareness" by Anthony de Mello this week--rich meetings! We also watched a video loaned by a member. You can find videos of him talking on u-tube, which help to illuminate the "Awareness" book. Lots to discuss and ponder!

  2. Great photo! and felt the same about actually posting my reading for Lent
    [committed now!]
    glad you had time off in such beauty ... HapPy Friday !

  3. Great pic! And perhaps I too should tag on the mouth closed discipline!

  4. Such a great picture. I could not think of a simile but yours..nails (pun intended) it!


  5. What a nice set of smiles! :) I feel your pain on the Lenten practice. I so need to do it... but so often I struggle with being consistent. I do LOVE your tiredness simile, BTW. :)

  6. Thanks for posting all the links to your blog. I forgot to mention that your picture is lovely--your smile is memorable.

  7. I hear you about the Lenten disciplines. I thought that's one thing to say it to my husband and another to publish it!

    And I will have to try that Starbucks drink sometime!

  8. I hear you about the Lenten discipline! I thought the same thing...and I would love to try that Starbucks drink sometime.

  9. Caribbean Blue! yes! great pic, too... thanks for playing!
