Wednesday Hodgepodge

Just something to get me back on my blog!!

1. What are your plans for Easter day/weekend?

I'm hoping to go to Good Friday service on Friday evening. Saturday, i will probably go shopping and do classes are almost over and it's crunch time. Sunday, we will go to church, hopefully the whole family, and then have dinner together after that. All of our family is living in another state, so it's pretty quiet around here come holiday time :-(

2. Besides Jesus, what one person from the Bible would you most like to meet and why?
I would love to meet David because God called him "the man after Mine own heart." He was a Sheppard and a king and also a sinner who was still chosen by God. I would like to hang out with him for a while and pick up some tips on getting really close to God.

3. What is one modern day convenience you didn't have as a child that was easy to live without?
Satellite TV. We did so much more when there was not 200 channels of soul-sucking-time-wasters to watch. I have a love-hate relationship with television because i do love to relax in front of a good program or movie, but some of us spend too much time in front of the TV when we could be doing so much more.

4. Are you more right brained or left brained? If you're not sure what that means there is an interesting little quiz here.

My Results: I am more Right Brained:
Left Brain  49%             Right Brain  51%             
You are more right-brained than left-brained. The right side of your brain controls the left side of your body. In addition to being known as right-brained, you are also known as a creative thinker who uses feeling and intuition to gather information. You retain this information through the use of images and patterns. You are able to visualize the "whole" picture first, and then work backwards to put the pieces together to create the "whole" picture. Your thought process can appear quite illogical and meandering. The problem-solving techniques that you use involve free association, which is often very innovative and creative. The routes taken to arrive at your conclusions are completely opposite to what a left-brained person would be accustomed. You probably find it easy to express yourself using art, dance, or music. Some occupations usually held by a right-brained person are forest ranger, athlete, beautician, actor/actress, craftsman, and artist.

Your Left Brain Percentages:

50% Symbolic (Your most dominant characteristic)
38% Logical
31% Sequential
22% Linear
20% Reality-based
7% Verbal (Your least dominant characteristic)

Your Right Brain Percentages:
45% Random (Your most dominant characteristic)
40% Fantasy-oriented
25% Nonverbal
20% Intuitive
19% Concrete
18% Holistic (Your least dominant characteristic)


5. What is one thing you intended to do today but didn't?

Well, the only thing i can think of is that I intended to make a cell phone call while stopped at a red light...but i picked up my phone, put it to my ear, and looked to my left...and saw a police car right next to me with a grumpy looking police man staring at me with a frown on his face (it is now illegal in DE to use our cell phone's while driving). So i smiled, put down the phone, and drove on my way. :-) The only other thing i can think of is wash my car, but i ran out of daylight. Next warm day, that is what i intend to do.

6. Cadbury Creme Eggs or Reeses Peanut Butter?
Resses Peanut Butter all the way!!

7. Who was your favorite cartoon character when you were a child?
Um, i don't remember as a young child actually watching cartoons, but i did love Sesame Street. I loved watching the Smurfs when i was a bit older ( like around 15, lol) I also loved the cartoon He-Man that i used to watch with a little guy i used to baby-sit for.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

It was such a beautiful day today, it felt so good to be outside. I am really looking forward to summer this year. I hate hot and humid weather, but it's been sooo cold for such a long time that i can't wait for it to be hot for a while. Plus, summer is my favorite time of year because i get to go to Florida for three weeks to visit my family (parents, sister, cousins, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews) I can't wait!!!

  1. So great to see you blogging. I miss you friend. We only have 12 days of school left.
    We need to get together again.
    Hope to see you Friday night at the Good Friday service and Sunday morning. If you want to come for Sunday School on Sunday remember it is the Easter Brunch... so come and fellowship with us!!! I know some of the family may not want to get going that early and it is important that they all come so if we only see you for church I certainly understand... I just hope to see you ALL!!!

    Talking on you phone while driving... shame, shame... and that after you saw the result of your daughter's accident. Drive safe girl... and not just when you see a police officer next to you. We want to keep you around. No phone call is worth your life.

    Right Brained huh... but just barely... you are almost 50/50. I was Left Brained... which is why I like my to do lists and organizing things. LOL

    Love and Hugs.

  2. oops should be "your" phone... typo :-)
