Mondays & Timing & Five Among Friends~*

So.  Here we are.

This semester promises to be extra, well, extra.  Jeremy & I are writing a textbook.  I am on a few committees that actually interest me rather alot.  I have an article waiting to be published.  And I have my classes.

I may not be around here as much as I have been.  Not that I think for a minute ya'll are sitting around with bated breath waiting for my words of wisdom. And not that I won't keep doing what I do, crafting & making messes.  Just that something has to give.  

I'm going to chuck the schedule out the window & just post when I can, whatever I want to post about.  Hope that pleases & sparkles with you~*

And today what I want to do is answer the clever Five Among Friends questions posed by Jeane from The Dauntless Tales.   

What do you do when you first wake up in the morning?

I am by no stretch of the imagination a morning person.  I generally wake up at least a half an hour before I have to, so that I can have sit and drool time, sipping my coffee and generally getting my brain in order.  

If someone was to give you one gift, money is no object, what would you want to receive?

Well, it may seem unexciting, but I'd love to have our house paid off.  We owe less than half of its value right now, so we are nearly there.  I love this stupid house.  Sigh.

If you had three wishes, what would you wish?

I am guessing I can't wish for more wishes, right?  I am also guessing no beauty pageant I-would-wish-for-world-peace type answers, yes?

Okay.  Hmmmm...

1.  Long life for my parents & family &  kids & husband & me.  That's one wish because it all falls in the long life theme.  Don't cross me on this, I know my wish lore.

2.  Good health for same folks.  No fun having a long life if you can't enjoy it, right?

3.  Happiness for the same folks.  I mean, we are generally happy people so that bit shouldn't be too hard.  I think someone buying my parent's house would go along way lol.  Oh hey, could I tack that on to my "money no object" answer?  Pay off my house & buy my folks.  Now really, is that too much to ask?  

What is one quality you admire most in others?


Describe your dream vacation. :)

I've talked about this before!  Though right now there is a little micro-brewery/b & b just 65 miles away that I'd love to slip away to for the weekend with my handsome hubby~*

  1. It does sound so busy for you right now! A textbook? Wow! Hope you're enjoying the school year :)

    1. Well, we're just writing it-- whether or not our publisher will pick it up remains to be seen!

  2. You ARE busy!

    I wish I could get my butt out of bed early. I wait until the last possible second. ;)

    1. I hate getting up early. It sucks! Its just what I gotta do!

  3. I love that your 3 wishes are all focused on your family. I love a lady who knows her priorities :)

  4. Exciting! Good luck juggling everything and getting into the swing if the school year. I'm taking this semester off teaching... I'll miss it, but the break will be nice too :)

  5. Here is what I have to say:
    We love you!! So you do what you have to do, while we will miss you here and there (we will survive) and we will be here as you come and go, just don't forget about us :). Keep your good attitude towards life and I'm sure God will grant you your wishes as they are lovely.

    Have a wonderful rest of the week.

  6. Ditto what craftyspices said. are writing a book! Very cool. I totally get the concept of blogging when you can. Totally. Just...don't disappear entirely. Is my wish (since the wish topic came up...and I defer to your wish-lore seniority here).


Thank you for taking the time to comment! It is most appreciated~*
