This has been one of those weeks that left me feeling a lot like Loretta Lynn as depicted in the breakdown scene in Coal Miner’s Daughter:
I’m not a-runnin’ my life; it’s a-runnin’ me.
With my RSS reader of choice experiencing an outage for most of the week, and a road trip with friends fast approaching, I decided to go on attack mode with my project list. As a result, I have been Turbo Cammy all week. I’ll try to put together a post with some project photos, but for now, it feels soooo good to press the pause button and take a breather.
I so enjoyed hearing from listeners and new readers after the Half Size Me podcast! (I promise, I’m usually a bit more consistent in posting!) I look forward to getting to know you all better! In fact, why not start now?
Every now and then I post a few mostly unrelated questions from which you can choose as few or as many questions as you’d like to answer. I like learning more about readers here and the bloggers I read. It’s also fun to see people find kindred spirits as they read other people’s answers.
So here are the questions for this round, free for you to interpret as you wish:
-What was the first thing you ever won?
-What is your favorite quote?
-What book have you attempted to read several times but have never been able to finish?
-If you could remodel one room in your house what would it be?
-How do you know when you’ve had too much?
– First thing won: I think it was an oil change (or something equally exciting) as a door prize at a concert when I was about six. You can imagine my delight.
– Fav quote: “She believed she could, so she did.” (unknown) My favorites change daily–sometimes hourly–but this one has come to mind several times over the past few days.
– Unfinished book: ‘Custom of the Country’ by Edith Wharton. After starting it and putting it down many times over the past…oh, 10 years or so, I finally decided I probably wasn’t going to read it. I took it to Goodwill this week.
– One room remodel: Regular readers know my answer to this one: MY KITCHEN!! I’ve only been “working” on it for about 4 years now. (Pity I can’t just take IT to the Goodwill and be done with it. LOL)
– Had too much: It’s hard to explain, but I know I’ve had too much and need to hit the pause button when my thoughts get cluttered and circular, and all I’m doing is re-thinking, and not moving on the solving or letting go steps.
I hope you’ll have some time this weekend to weigh in with your answers! If not, I hope you somehow manage to still have an awesome weekend!
