If you wanted to de-clutter where you live, what room / space would you start with? (And why, if you feel like admitting to it.)
We do most of our actual living in our bedroom. This is where
If you want to remember something important, how do you do it (sticky note on the fridge, string around your finger, etc.), and does it work?
I keep a stack of index cards close at hand. When I need to remember something, I write on one of those. I keep the active ones in front of me on our desk. It works fine until I lose them, which is most of the time.
If you could create a one room retreat just for yourself, what would be the most important sense to emphasize: sight (bright natural light, dim light, etc.), hearing (silence, music, fountain, etc.), smell (candles, incense, etc), touch (wood, stone, soft fabrics, etc.), or taste (herbal tea, fresh fruit, etc.)?
It would be snuggly warm, with a fireplace. It would have a recliner and be as quiet as possible. It would have dark woods and be lined with leather-bound books.
If you could interview one of your great-great-great grandparents, who would it be (if you know their name) and what would you ask?
That far back it would be hard to say. I would love to talk with my father’s father. He died when my father was only 17. I would love to know what makes him tick.
His name was Robert Bruce McClendon, Sr.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am thankful for another stroke-free week. I am thankful that we were able to find the right hospital when we needed it. I am thankful that Suzanne is here to help me get around. I am also thankful that I am able to get around as well as I do.
I am looking forward to getting the cast off as soon as I can. I look forward to being able to walk again. I look forward to another 50 or so years with my beautiful child-bride Suzanne.
We will catch you on the rebound.
