Will Smama over at revgals says Greetings friends! It's been awhile since I've contributed to the posts here at the revgalblogpals website, but I agreed to step into the Fifth Friday of the Month Friday Five slot.
So here I be.
As I zip around the webring it is quite clear that we are getting BUSY. "Tis the season" when clergy and laypeople alike walk the highwire from Fall programming to Christmas carrying their balancing pole with family/rest on the one side and turkey shelters/advent wreaths on the other.
And so I offer this Friday Five with 5 quick hit questions... and a bonus:
1) Your work day is done and the brain is fried, what do you do?
Now if I was super spiritual I'd say meditate or something like that, but it would be a lie. I quite often veg out in front of the TV, CSI, Houseand Desperate Housewives are amongst my favourite tune out shows! A recent BBC show that really caught my imagination was Sunshine, it made me laugh and cry"
So there you have it, I am an evening couch potato!!!
2) Your work week is done and the brain is fried (for some Friday, others Sunday afternoon), what do you do?
Friday is my day off and I like to get out for a long walk, often that is on a nearby beach, but today it will be in the Peak District as we are taking Christopher back to Clliff College after reading week.
3) Like most of us, I often keep myself busy even while programs are on the tv. I stop to watch The Office and 30 Rock on Thursday nights. Do you have 'stop everything' tv programming or books or events or projects that are totally 'for you' moments?
See #1!!! But also totally for me moments are when I pick up my guitar and simply play, not for anything, not as practice but simply for the pleasure of it, often this becomes worship, but it is just me and God, and that is good!
4) When was the last time you laughed, really laughed? What was so funny?
Yesterday I had a good laugh at this:
and on Tuesday evening I spent a long time chattiong with a friend, we laughed together and commiserated together...it certainly did me good!
5) What is a fairly common item that some people are willing to go cheap on, but you are not.
Bread, quite simply I like really good bread, cheap stuff will not do! We have a bread machine so often make our own. Now my mouth is watering!!!
Bonus: It's become trite but is also true that we often benefit the most when we give. Go ahead, toot your own horn. When was the last time you gave until it felt good?
It may be trite ( although I don't think it is) but it is true. We are opting for a ( mostly)Buy nothing Christmas this year, the gifts we do give will be Alternative gifts, water or school supplies or livestock for those that need them. Check out Cafod's gift site! We have done this for the last couple of years and it has been good!!!!!
