Volume 213
Join in the fun! 

1. Share a favorite song, book, or movie title containing the word green?

I'm going to say "It's Not Easy Being Green" by Kermit the Frog! 

2. Ralph Waldo Emerson is quoted as saying, 'Shallow men believe in luck. Strong men believe in cause and effect.' Would you agree? Are you a believer in luck?

I don't agree because I don't think someone is shallow because they believe in luck. I am a believer in Godincidences! 

3. Spring water, Hot Springs, handspring, spring fling, spring break, spring fever, offspring...which 'spring' word best applies to something in your day, week, or life right now?

I'm going to say offspring......

4. What's something you do to make yourself look or feel more confident?

I think putting on a nice outfit, fixing my hair and make-up always makes me feel more confident. At home I generally don't wear make-up and usually have sweats on. Of course getting my hair colored and styled every three months helps too! 

5.  It's National Celery Month...are you a fan? If so, what's a snack or dish you enjoy that calls for celery?

I guess you could say I am a fan. I like to eat it with peanut butter. I also buy it when we are having snacks like on Super Bowl Sunday. I use it for dips and have chips for those who want them! 

6. What's one thing you wish you'd learned sooner?

That's a tough question. I do know that some things cannot be learned sooner because you have to experience them for yourself.  

I will however say eating healthier and the fact that our government hasn't always been there for our well being when it comes to chemicals used! That makes me mad.  I am trying very hard to buy Organic when I can and concentrating on buying Non GMO foods. 

7. Would you like to own a second home? If so where would you want that home to be?

As much as I have always thought it would be fun to have a summer home to enjoy I just wouldn't want the work involved. Now however there are times when I would like to have two places for retirement. One in the mountains for the Summer months and one at the beach for the Winter months.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
Thought this was cute!

"I do know that some things cannot be learned sooner because you have to experience them for yourself."

I wish that were not so Debby but the school of hard knocks seems to be the only place we can learn some things.

Theresa said...

The mountains and the ocean are two great places to be- love them both!
I agree about the chemicals in food. We try to buy organic when we can and non-gmo. Gmos are just disgusting.

April said...

That video is too cute, Debby! Love it! I'm with you...a summer home in the mountains would be ideal!

Sandra said...

I like your word Godincidences and do believe they happen but i am a firm believer in cause and effect, no luck / involved. my list of I wish I had known is very long, and a lot of them i learned because of what I did caused and effect, way to late..

A Joyful Chaos said...

Godincidences ....... I'll have to remember that word. :)

Nikki Scatchard said...

I agree on #6.. You can't go back and learn something.. ;) Such a cute video by the way.

Michelle F said...

I love celery in soups but do not care for it raw very much.

bp said...

I like celery with dip also. Who knew there was national celery month!!

Elizabeth Day said...

Debbie, that video is so cute and yes, I did enjoy seeing it. Thanks for sharing. Siblings who play together, stay together? Also, we obviously agree on #2.

Joyce said...

Sometimes life just has to be lived. All parents know this : ) We want so much to spare our children some of our own 'hard life lessons' but its not always possible. Love the mashup!

Chatty Crone said...

It's not easy to be green - love that.

I wish i would have learned to say NO earlier - to my children - and make them tougher.

betty said...

So cute with that video! Would have been fun to play the piano in my younger years :)


Secret Agent Woman said...

Very cute video at the end. And I am so happy to be seeing more and more green around these days.

I love (and agree with) your answer to #2!
I know what you mean about the food we've been eating. I fear it's literally making us sick!
Thanks for sharing that video. I loved it :)

Nel said...

Yep I like Godincidences!

Deb said...

The additives and chemicals cause most of the illness and over weightness of today

Montanagirl said...

"Fried Green Tomatoes"; And TexWis isn't the only American that hasn't seen "Frozen". LOL! Pick me.

NanaNor's said...

I love reading your answers, I agree with your thoughts.
Hope you have a wonderful evening and Friday.
Hugs, Noreen

Hi Debby, I love Kermit! Having my hair done and wearing makeup when I go out makes me feel more confident too. Hope you have a good evening. Raining in Georgia tonight!


So with you on the summer mountain home. Love the word Godincidences....may use it in my sermon sometime. I love Kermit too.
