Questions Meme
My precious, young friend Cyndi has tagged me for a meme. In this one, she makes up five questions, and I answer them. So here we go:

1.When is a time you felt especially close to God?
Truthfully it was during one of those very difficult times. My husband had just lost his job and at the same time began having severe complications from diabetes. We thought at one point that he was going to lose his vision completely. I prayed like I had never prayed before. There were times when I could almost feel God's hands close around mine. It was a very precious time.

2.If you could learn another language (easily) what would it be?
I was going to say French, but then I thought about how wonderful it would be to go to Italy and find some of my family there. Being able to speak Italian would really come in handy!

3.What house chore is your least favorite and why.
I'm almost ashamed to admit it's cooking. I honestly don't know why, but I would gladly do the cleanup if someone would come and cook all the meals. I would also appreciate it if she'd bring some new recipes along with her. Since I don't enjoy it, I don't spend the time looking for recipes that I should. Shame on me!!

4. If you could have any animal (tamed) as a pet what would it be?
This is an easy one - a German Shepherd puppy. My husband isn't crazy about dogs, so we don't have one. However, we had a German Shepherd mix when I was a little girl and I absolutley loved that dog. If I could have another Shep, I would love it.

5. What's one thing about your life now that would have surprised the "teenager you" to know.
There are several things, but I think the biggest thing would be that I still feel like the same "me" at sixty. Back when I was a teenager, sixty just seemed so ancient to me. It is surprising how youthful I still feel and how quickly those years sped by.

I don't know anyone who hasn't done this meme - so I won't tag anyone else. Thanks Cyndi. It was fun to be tagged, and I enjoyed the questions.

Blessings,

You picked the language I would have picked. After having gone to Italy a few years back, I really would love to learn Italian.

You are on! I'll do all the cooking and you can do all the cleaning. We'll get along just ducky! :v)

And I totally know what you mean about #5.

I'm with Suzanne - I'll gladly do the cooking if you'll clean up! I'll even bring my cookbooks and my homecooking recipes - the ones in my head that aren't written down anywhere. :-)

And I can certainly agree with you on #5. Mentally I don't feel any older than I did as a teenager. Physically....now that's a different story! :-)

Have a wonderful week, Linda.

Love and hugs,

Diane

You could have lots of bloggy friends cooking for you, if you didn't mind the clean up (me included)
:)
I should learn Spanish. I must say here in CA, it's becoming almost a necessity to learn it!!
Fun meme!!

Oh, Linda! Fun answers! First of all, I'll go give our big ole German Shepherd a big hug from her new adopted godmother, Linda. (You'd love Haley... such a sweety!) Secondly, I too join the bloggy brigade of those who would gladly come cook at your house. I love, love, love the cooking but by cleanup time I am SO done being in the kitchen (and have usually given all I can to that day anyway!) Thirdly, I can completely understand feeling the "same" at 60. The other day someone said they were 25 and I thought to myself, "Oh, that's about my age." Uh, no. It's not. LOL Thanks for answering, that was fun to read!!

I agree with you on the cooking! I will go through periods of time that I enjoy it some, but most of the time--Keep me out of the kitchen!

I tagged you for a meme today--they are flying around lately, it seems. YOu may have already done it. If so, or if you choose not to do it, it's fine with me. I am alwyas a little reluctant to tag people, because I never know who wants to do them!

Hope you are having a good day!

great answers! My least favorite chore is ironing! Cooking is a close second though - just trying to come up with menus every day!

Great answers. My least favorite household chore - just about anything any more. Pathetic!!

Great answers.
