Friday's Feast #8 - Postponed until Now

I was gone over the weekend and didn't get a chance to prepare a "Friday's Feast" on November 8th, so you are getting a belated post~~~Enjoy!


Briefly describe your living room.

My living room has chocolate brown laminate floors, no baseboards at the moment, and slightly pink walls.  My couch is on its last leg (literally!) and has a floral print.  There is chair that matches the couch, as well as two additional chairs that have been repaired over-and-over with duct tape . . . they are covered with plush blankets (not matching).  There is an antique bronze, glass-covered coffee table with two matching end-tables.  One corner of the room has a bookcase and one wall has an upright piano with a piano bench that doesn't match the piano.  There are two lamps in the room (one is shaped like tulips and the other is an upright antique-bronze-looking floor lamp).  There is a ceiling fan made of dark brown metal and the curtains (which I made myself) are burgundy.  The room has a bit of a Victorian feel to it, but in all honesty, I wish I could change the furniture and buy something that isn't broken, torn or tattered.  This would likely modernize the room because aside from the furniture, I'd add a shaggy area rug, which would definitely get rid of the Victorian feel that the room currently has.


List 3 things you'd like to accomplish before the end of 2013.

1.  Thoroughly clean my house.
2.  Paint my newly-renovated bathroom.
3.  Expand God's Kingdom.


When you're online, what do you spend the most time reading/playing/doing?

My online activity is spent mostly at these sites:  Progressive Discover-e (where my boys attend school), Facebook,  blogs,  and checking e-mail.

What would the title of your autobiography be?

The title of my autobiography would be, Faithful Through the Fire.  The "faithfulness" I imply would be that of God's faithfulness to me, despite the "fires" in life that have come my way.  I've had this title in mind for an autobiography for about 10 years.  However, I doubt that it will ever come into existence.  This blog is about as close to an autobiography (of mine) that you will ever be able to read.


What time do you usually go to bed?

Ideally, my bedtime is 10:30 p.m.  Realistically, it's more like 11:30 p.m.  I'm trying desperately to change this, but life happens, and I'm not always able to get as much sleep as I'd like.  I truly wish I could fit more hours into my day so that I had more time to catch-up on life.

When you finish deep-cleaning your house, can you come and do mine as well? (grin!) We always try to set up our tree on December 1st and I don't like doing the holiday decorating without having cleaned up everywhere first, as once the decorations are everywhere, it becomes more of a challenge to clean. I guess I had better get on it, since I only have a couple of weeks now to get things ready.

I'm so glad to see you posting once a week again. It gives me something to look forward to.

"Faithful Through the Fire." What a great title. God IS FAITHFUL. Thanks for sharing a little of what that means on your blog. Love you.
