Here is today's Friday's Feast
What does the color pink make you think of?
My mother, that Mary Kay Makeup lady, pink plastic toys that my girls used to have when they were little, like Polly Pockets. I also made my husband wear a pink cummerbund in our wedding at the last minute. Finally, my co-worker is battling pink eye. Isn't the object here to sort of respond by "stream-of-consciousness?"
Name something you thought you had lost, but later found.
I have a tiny little dog, a Yorkie, sort of like a guinea pig on longer legs. One day, my husband was home at lunch working on something in the crawl space. When he came up and was getting ready to go back to work, he noticed she wasn’t right on his heels as usual. He called and called, looked and looked, alas, no Zoe. He went into the garage thinking maybe she got out the door that he had not shut, but no Zoe. He began to sweat, knowing that while there are few things capable of ruining his marriage, it would be all over if this little dog went missing.
Then he heard a noise and followed it. It came from below … she had jumped or more likely fallen into the crawl space hole, and he had shut her in and placed something over the door. Imagine what would have happened had we gone looking all over the outside world instead of under our own feet. Yikes. She was lost but now she was found, and there was GREAT rejoicing.
In 3 words, describe this past week.
What are you obsessed with?
Blogging and Zoe the found dog
What kind of perfume or cologne do you like to wear?
Quality gardenia or Lovespell. But do you know what I really miss? That baby-generated “perfume” on your shoulder after they’ve had a burp. And the smell of newborns’ necks and hair. Now that is intoxicating!
