Feasting, Not Fasting
It's time for Friday's Feast.
What is your usual bedtime? Do you like that, or would you rather it be different?
Daylight and the lack thereof influences me a lot. When the sun starts going down, I start getting sleepy. I'm embarrassed to say how early. Really early. And I get up really early. I sort of like my routine, but when I socialize, I get tired before everyone else, which is a bummer. But oh, I do love my bedtime. Many nights I literally pray, "Thank you for my bed; I love it." And then I immediately feel bad for people all over the world without beds.
When it comes to advice, do you give more or receive more?
I think it's about equal. Lately I've been giving more, which is probably a good thing since it means I'm in less stress or dilemma.
Describe a memorable meal you've had.
The first real meal I ever fixed for my boyfriend, who became my husband, was chicken divan. I thought I was a gourmet! In high school, I had a meal at a French restaurant with our French Club in Indy that I will always remember.
Name a work of fiction that affected the way you think about something.
There are too many to name. Most recently, probably The Kite Runner. Anna Karenina moved me, also The Age of Innocence. Anything by Edith Wharton, Jane Austen, Charles Dickens ... Narnia ....
What is your favorite type of fruit juice?
Grape. And I have plans to buy some this weekend because I'm really getting into going after free radicals with anti-oxidents. It's a kick that will last a few weeks, like everything else in my life. Except blogging. And motherhood.
