Despite the red color of these words, I must say I like periwinkle better. (That's a shade of blue)
Favorite animal? German Shepherds, Dogs, and Cats (not hairless cats!).
Otters are adorable!!!
Do you like braid hairstyles? Yes!
Definitively, despite the fact I can't braid hair myself...*embarrassed grimace*
Seriously??? You're asking a bookworm who watches movie editions to compare with the book and loves classic movies to pick a favorite??? *closes eyes and takes a deep breath* Okay, BBC 2004 North and South for book to movie, and Casablanca for plain classic.
Do you prefer coffee or tea? I only like certain teas. Cinnamon (from Kroger an hour away) and Chai are the only teas I really like right now. I do like coffee, though.
Oh dear, this is a hard one. I drink both of them, a lot. Well, if I have to choose, tea.
What is your favorite food? Pizza (without vegetables), and Macaroni and Cheese (preferably with Velveeta or from a box!).
I like spicy and/or other exotic food, but I don't get it often, so I'll go with....coleslaw...weird, I know, but delicious. :-)
Favorite game? “Ticket to Ride”, Monopoly, Monopoly Socialism, and “Blink” to name a few…..
Scrabble and any type of logic game.
Favorite song to play on piano? Oh, this is hard. In Christ Alone, He Leadeth Me, The Love of God, and Jesus Paid it All.
What is your favorite genre of music? Christian and sometimes classic.
Christian Contemporary and Classical. I also prefer hymns.
What is your favorite genre for books? Contemporary for the most part.
Do you have any pets? Yes! Two dogs and two cats (aka-the models for most my photography).
I believe we live in the same house, sooo....
How long have you had a blog? Since February 16, 2020
Why did you start a blog? To share the good news of the Gospel and to post my stories.
When did you become a Christian? Five or six, I think.
Are you a morning person or a night owl? Both! I love getting up early and staying up late.
What is your favorite book you have read in 2020? Kiera (Kate Willis), Will our Generation Speak? (Grace Mally), and The Family Daughter (Sarah L. Bryant) are my favorite so far.
If you could meet any fictional character from any book, who would it be? And why? Andi Carter! I would choose her because I want to know how she ended up having so many adventures!
Frankly, I've rarely had a desire to meet someone from a fictional book. Like, really, that'd be extremely awkward.
If you could meet any historical figure, who would that be? And why? Jesus (if we are His children, we will see Him one day.) Aside from Him, probably Ruth.
Sorry, Ellen. I haven't read all of your book yet. *red face* But, I'll be sure to give you feedback when I do!
How does your family generally celebrate birthdays? Gifts are usually opened at breakfast or supper depending on whose birthday it is. No school for us girls. We usually do a little trip with whoever is home (shopping, walk, etc.). The birthday person usually makes their dessert (unless it’s Dad). Supper is either the person’s favorite meal or favorite restaurant (for instance, this year we did Papa John’s Pizza for me). The Sunday before their birthday, we may go out to eat (this varies by budget/situation). Dessert is served and then we usually watch a movie or talk.
Again, same house: same traditions
One song you can put on replay without getting tired of it? "I am Resolved"
Several, actually. Burn the Ships For King and Country is one of them.
Most recent book you have read? On the day I am writing this part of the post (5/18/20), Ideas for Evangelism by David Cloud. I'm also plowing through three other books...
I just finished Tom Sawyer Abroad (Mark Twain). Now, all I have to do is finish that memoir, world religion overview, bibliography, etc...
Same, except reading is first. :-)
Current favorite quarantine activity? Reading. I found I can be a major bookworm at times. Oh, and playing the piano!
Reading, until I get a headache.
Usually it's down, but sometimes Lilly'll braid it or I'll put it in a ponytail.
Do you wear a wristwatch? Yes!
How often do you post on your blog? Basically whenever I have a post idea, usually 2-3 times per week.
Since it's not my blog, I'll probably on here only 2-3 times per month. (Maybe less.)
What has been your past favorite grade? I have no idea 😊 Maybe 1st grade?
The one I shed the least amount of tears in. *scratches head* I don't remember that grade.
Probably something that even I don't even know I love.
Bedroom because I can sleep there. :-)
If you could learn another language, what would it be? I am currently learning Spanish, so Spanish. Yo hablo espanol?
I am learning German. Ich verstehe etwas Deutsch!
Same here. It'll change only if Lilly gets married or I do. And whether He has any siblings.
Do you like to listen to music? If so, what kind? Yes! Usually hymns, certain Southern Gospel, and certain Contemporary music.
Some hymns and Christian Contemporary.
Back to impossible choices, again, huh? Well, *stab in the dark* L.M. Montgomery and Perry Kirkpatrick.
Hmm, I'd probably try to fail. :-P
Favorite hymn? I am Resolved, Little is Much, Down at the Cross (Glory to His Name), and To God be the Glory.
Higher Ground and It is Well With My Soul.
Like Sis, Fanny Crosby.
Favorite girl's name (doesn't have to be your own!😊)? Elizabeth, Brighton, Eden, Rebecca, and Haven to name a few. Somewhere, I have a whole data base of girl names.
Names are my sister's field. (she normally names half my characters) However, I do like Sarah, Katherine, Evelyn, and Grace.
The American Revolutionary period.
Close the notebook and/or computer and go outside.
What inspires you to write? Horrible books at the library that do not come even close to my standards.
What's your favorite mystery story (book or movie)? I don’t usually read mysteries…...
The Secret Adversary (Agatha Christie)
What exotic animal would you pick for a pet (assuming it was legal :D)? If it didn’t try and kill me, a tiger.
Sorry, I am TERRIBLE at comparing myself to classic characters. (Maybe cause they're not me?)
Again, not a clue...definitely small. Housework is overwhelming.
If you could be an animal what would it be? I have no desire to become an animal, so I don’t know.
Nothing poisonous, thank you. *shudder*
I love the sound of the violin and flute.
Eekks!!! So many to chose from!! *scrabbles around* OK, maybe Be Thou My Vision and Redeemed (Fanny Crosby)?
I am the worst at remembering references, but there's a verse in Titus I like, I think...
You guessed it...reading!
Favorite blog? Circle C Adventures, From Allison, and Reflections of the Heart. (okay, literally every blog I follow is my favorite, so if your's ain't on here, don't be hurt)
I don't really follow many blogs, however I check up on several. Ellen's Musings takes the prize.
Favorite post on your blog? Honesty, Even When it’s Hard.
This is only my third post, therefore, I pass. Next.
What’s your favorite tv show? I don’t watch much t.v, but I Love Lucy is a favorite. (Note: I do not recommend every episode.)
They don't call I Love Lucy I love Lucy, for no reason. She's my favorite.
Jello, that stuff is nasty!!! *grimace*
Smile, laugh, and praise the Lord. Then, I'll go to the library. :-)
Quiet and stubborn, yet friendly. *glances at sis* Her words "stubborn all right."
Who is your favorite Godly role model (aside from Jesus), past or present? My parents and my pastor’s wife, Mrs. B.
How did you get saved, and what was the first emotion you felt afterwards? To tell you the truth, I don’t know. I *think* I was convicted when I was like five (?). Like I said, I know I was young, hence the fact I don’t remember too well……
I don't exactly remember either, but I do remember the sense of relief and joy after being baptized.
Classy skirt and blouse with sandals, or boots in winter.
Your favorite memory of your sister and you
Nothing stands out, but the weird conversations we have at night are memorable.
Yes, if it was cooked and fried. (I've always wanted to try snake)
Uh, no. I am a chicken around live spiders. Especially big, hairy ones. *shudder*
Alaska takes the prize. Hawaii is too hot.
What is the weirdest food combination you’ve made and tried? I'm not sure.
Reading on the swing, walking, and shooting hoops with Lilly.
What movie never gets old no matter how many times you’ve seen it? I don't watch many movies twice.
What’s your favorite line from a book or a movie? "It never rains in the plains of Spain" ~My Fair Lady (movie). I don't know if I can recommend it, as that line is all I remember from the whole movie.
*brain overload* "movie stuff, Emily, movie stuff" -Brent (The Accidental Cases of Emily Abbott) I have others, but quotes and names don't go together for me. This one is the most recent. :-)
What’s the best concert you’ve been to and why was it so good? Casting Crowns. Their music is not rap or rock and most of it is Christ-honoring.
Casting Crowns. (Same concert) The other concert we went to was MercyMe's. They were good, too.
What artist or band do you always recommend when someone asks for a music recommendation? I need to know what kind of music you like before I can recommend anyone to you.
If you owned a restaurant, what kind of food would it serve? Bread and dessert. It'd probably be a cafe.
Spicy and exotic food.
What was the last photo you took?
