Is it Wednesday already? My Random-mess!

Hey, by now you know the drill! :-) Head on over to Linda's blog and join us if you like, meet some great people and have fun getting to know one another through the Random Dozen!!
1. What was the last thing about which you procrastinated?
Let me see.....I'm so tired.....I can't seem to remember.....I need to go bed......need yes, it must have been taking myself off to bed 'cause of trying to catch up on my internetty stuff when Fingers McGerk little Jaylon isn't here because when he naps during the day, I have to take a breather in order to last him out provide him with the best care possible for the remainder of the day. *yawwwnnnnn*

2. How long does it take you to fall asleep, and do you sleep through the night?
Mere minutes, sometimes seconds. Yes, I sleep soundly until the alarm goes off at 5:30am. Well, that is, if I have not overindulged in too much liquid refreshment too close to bedtime. ;-0

3. Which decade would you choose to exemplify your favorite fashion styles?
Wellllll....I don't know that I have a favorite decade of style because I like classic clothing that never goes out of style. Clean lines. Nothing fru-fru.

4. What is your personal best dish to feed a crowd?
Well, according to all of my family, when we are having a Thanksgiving family get-together, they always want me to fix homemade noodles, rolls, and dressing/stuffing.
If it is a summertime cookout, they all ask me to bring my baked beans and this sinfully delicious chocolate trifle I make.
My sister Debbie's children like the pizza casserole that I make.
A family friend, Tony, thinks I make the best Tuna Noodle Casserole.
For funerals, I almost always make Smoked Sausage with Creole Vegetables.
Soooooo, I guess you could say that the best dish would depend on the crowd. :-)

5. Are you an impulse shopper? What was the last thing you bought on impulse?
Oh, I remember this one! Ed, me, Daniel and Erin and little Jaylon spent the weekend in Dayton some months ago. We visited the Air Force museum and had a wonderful weekend. We stopped at Jeffersonville Outlet Mall and I went into the Dress Barn, I believe it was. Immediately upon entering, my eyes settled upon this animal print overblouse with subtle gold metallic threads running through it. Oh my! I am so partial to animal print!
Now being an outlet store, I thought, "Okay, how much can it be?". It was $42!!! I thought that was a tad high but, oooohhhh, I loved this blouse! AND as I did have some extra money with me, I bought it!!!! I can't tell you the last time I spent THAT MUCH on a piece of clothing! BUT I have enjoyed wearing it numerous times since then without a speck of guilt! Thank. you. very. much! LOL

6. What is one wish you have for your own funeral?
That at least a few people show up. :-/
Honestly, I asked Ed one time, "Do you ever wonder if there will be very many people at your funeral, should you die before the Lord comes?"
To which he replied, as he was falling asleep, "No....I figure I won't know what's going on anyway."
You know, that just kind of settled it for me. :-)

7. If it's true that joy is in found in the simple things in life, what does your joy look like today?
My side of the bed, the covers turned back, beckoning me to come...."sleep, my child, you need sleep"......

8. What is your favorite type of bread?
Generously buttered.

9. What trait do you fear developing the most? (Laziness, greediness, grumpiness, etc.)
At this point in my life, I believe I am what I am and whatever traits I have developed through the years are the ones I'm gonna be taking to my grave or to heaven with me.
That's not to say that there isn't room for improvement because there is, but, with the help of the Lord, I've endeavored and continue to endeavor to be the best me I can be.

10. What trait would you like most to develop?
Well, being the procrastinator that I am, I suppose my lack of punctuality could use some work. :-/

11. Which room in your house best reflects your personality? Why?
Hmmm.....I think it would be my bedroom. It's my favorite room. It's so quiet and peaceful and neat. It's so welcoming. I can truly rest there. It feels like my refuge and it is my refuge.
It reflects my personality because, even though I am an outgoing person and love people, I need a quiet place that is orderly, quiet, and beautiful where I can recharge.

12. How do you maintain balance in your life regarding, work, family, church, other organizations and activities, and blogging?
Balance? Do I HAVE balance in all of those things? LOL
All I can say is.....I try to be organized here at home, where it all begins. All of the rest seems to naturally fall into place if home is running smoothly. The Lord, family and home are the first priorities in my life. They are what really matter.

We had some very similar answers this week. I love your answer to the bread question : )

Hope you had a good night's sleep!

Barbara H. said...

A lot of us are the same on the second question. :-)

Good answer to #6!

I agree on #12, though it seems I constantly need to adjust things back to priorities,

Teresa Dawn said...

Sometimes impulse buys like that are good, I mean looking back on it, you're probably more likely to regret not buying the shirt than you will miss the $.

Nel said...
