“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the most patient of teachers.” — Charles William Eliot

When you cut something with scissors, do you move your jaw (as if you were about to chew)?
Nooo. I haven’t ever done that…at least not that I can remember.
Do you chew your pens and pencils?
Nope. The most I will do (I try not too since it’s very annoying) is click my pen in rapid succession. SIGH, full confession, I’m a pen clicker! I learned if I’m in a meeting to just leave the pen alone. Unless I’m taking notes or, sshhh, doodling (our secret).
Are you a collector of anything? If so what?
I’m not one for clutter so I try to keep collecting anything to a minimum. That being said, books, all kinds, magically find their way into my home. I have my children’s old story books, my mother’s ancient science fiction books (who remembers Issac Asimov?), funny books from my girlfriends and favorite reads I have fallen in love with over the years .
What size is your bed?
I have a beautiful, antique, cast iron, full sized bed. It sits very high up, so tall you almost need a step to climb into it. I have an addiction to lovely bedding, including plush down comforters and pillows. What it lacks in size it makes up in sweet dreamy loveliness and crisp cotton sheets. My bed happens to be one of my favorite places in the world.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
It continues to snow. And snow. And snow. Sunday Miss R, came over and we had a Sunday snow day. We watched movies. We made rice crispy treats. We played with her new Barbie and Monster High doll. We took bubble bath, snacked on fruits and veggies and ignored the piles of snow accumulating outside my door. I am so blessed and eternally grateful for my wonderful granddaughter that continues to remind me how to play.
I’m open to the Universe to guide me into next week. I’m pretty sure whatever shows up will be an adventure to cherish.
