1. Thursday (Oct 13) is National Train Your Brain Day. What do you do to keep your brain in tip top shape? Is it helping?
Sometimes I amuse myself by thinking that doing Sudokus is helping. I can prove that it isn't because just last week, after simmering chicken bones all afternoon to make chicken broth, I poured it into a sieve that had nothing beneath it to capture the broth—Right down the drain!
2. You can sit with anyone in the world and 'pick their brain'...whom do you choose? Tell us why?
This is a tough question!
Let's see, who meets my criteria?
I insist that said person is attentive, gives me enough time, has great patience, does not make me feel foolish, and is kind, though he or she can and should offer helpful insights.
Okay, there's no one in the world like that! Sounds as if I am looking for a counselor; scripture teaches me that Jesus is a wonderful or is it "the" wonderful counselor? I'm sticking with Him.
But! If I must choose a human being, I guess I'd choose Jordan Peterson who intrigues me a lot, yet with whom I do not always agree, especially on matters of faith.
3. What's something happening in the world (or your corner of it) right now that you have trouble 'wrapping your brain around'?
4. On a scale of 1-10 where do you fall in the pumpkin fanclub? (1=blech, 10=make it all pumpkin all the time) Tell us something delicious you've tasted recently that had some pumpkin in it somewhere.
I have yet to enjoy any pumpkin this autumn, but I have a can of pumpkin and am planning to do something with it.
5. Share a favorite song, book, or movie with an autumn title, setting, or vibe.
(Nat King Cole sings "Autumn Leaves)
6. Insert your own random thought here.
I've got a pile of random thoughts, just like the leaves in my yard.
Eagerly looking forward to spending time with my kids and grands this weekend. ☺️
Many thanks to Joyce at Across the Pond for this week's questions.
