Sparkles Like Cracked Ice

From Sunday Stealing

Q. Do you have another window or tab open? If so, what are they for?

A. Yes. I have two email providers on separate tabs, as well as Facebook.
Q. Do you like to cook/bake?

A. I wouldn't call it my most favorite thing but I do okay at it. Occasionally I like to attempt something creative.

Q. What are you currently listening to? 

A. The sound of silence, although my house is never completely silent. Clocks tick, air purifiers whirr, and cows low.

Q. How long have you lived in the house you live in?

A. Twenty-seven years.

Q. Are you tired?

A. I started a new medication on Friday and it seems to making me feel a little sleepy and loopy.

Q. Do you pick your words carefully, or just tend to blurt everything out?

A. I hope I pick my words carefully. Someone once told me that I don't say much, but when I do speak it is generally a good idea to listen.
Q. Are you nice to everyone?

A. I certainly try to be.

Q. Have you ever tripped in public?

A. I imagine so, though nothing comes immediately to mind.

Q. Are you a morning person or a night person?

A. I think I'm a middle-of-the-day person.

Q. Is it easier to forgive or forget?

A. It certainly helps if you forget. If you forget you don't need to forgive because you don't remember.

Q. Is there something that’s recently shocked you?

A. I am always shocked by the mean-spirited comments I see on the Internet. Can't we all just get along?

Q. Which is harder: walking away from somebody you love or coming back? 

A. I have no idea. I would think the former might be the more difficult choice.

Q. What were you doing at midnight last night?

A. Sleeping.

Q. What color are your eyes?

A. They are hazel with sparkles like cracked ice in them. They tend to reflect whatever color I am wearing.


  1. I agree with you about the internet comments. It's like not being face-to-face has given us the license to say anything that crosses our minds.

  2. I have learned to choose my words carefully. Although I do occasionally blurt.

  3. How come nobody asks us if we are a 'middle of the day' person? Why must we always have to choose between morning and night? I'm with you on this :)

  4. That is a perfect take on it: If you forget, then you don't have to forgive!

  5. Love that "middle of the day" person. Too right! hehe. And Comments after News items are truly terrible. Yes, why is it that some people feel that "anything goes" on the internet? I used to like to read a woodworker's magazine site but the guys on there could be so caustic. Also, there used to be a sewing site that was truly wonderful until a little band of brigands made everyone miserable, and the owners just let it stay hacked one year.

  6. THe sound of silence is a great song !
    Love the way you described your hazel eyes ~
    mine are hazel as well and just as you described them :)

  7. Silence can be a great thing!

  8. I've spent almost the same amount of years living in my own home - with similar happiness, I hope!

  9. I'm with you on enjoying the sounds of silence. It's not that I don't like listening to music, but sometimes you need to clear the junk out of your head. People who can't deal with silence, who need constant noise, worry me. How dark are their thoughts that they can't stand to be alone with them?


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
