Ask and You Shall Receive

fri.vol.i.ty

Definition:
The trait of being frivolous;
not serious or sensible in content,
attitude or behavior;
silly
.

I indulged in some frivolity recently.


How could a bowl and whisk be frivolous, you ask?

It was the pricetag on these items, my friends.
Completely ridiculous.

I was in a beautiful "kitchen store." I had in mind to find a small 'batter bowl'
with a handle to use for pancake batter and such. I also really needed a whisk
made especially for non-stick cookware.

Once I picked out these two items...they were perfect......and when I saw the prices
I put them right back on the shelf. It was a shame, really, I thought. How often do I walk into a store and find exactly what I wanted? The thought of making another trip to another store, the possibility of that store not having these things, etc. had me spinning....so I broke tradition and splurged. I'm lovin' em, too.

And now, some more silliness.
Sandra posted this little meme, so I thought it would be fun to participate.


1. What is your biggest pet peeve?
Selfish people.
2. If you could live anywhere where would it be and why?
Scotland, the home of my ancestors, because it so beautiful.....and they have lots of sheep and knitting.
3. Have you ever been searched by the cops? (LOL inquiring minds want to know). No.......but the day's not over :)
4. What is the one thing on your mind right now?
One thing? Ok, one of the main things on my mind right now is....I'd like to spend some time with the hubby.
5. Favorite song right now.
"Free" by the Zac Brown Band......and so many others.
6. What talent do you wish you had?
A beautiful singing voice.
7. Favorite drink.
Diet Coke, followed closely by hot tea w/ honey and lemon.
8. In one word, how would you describe yourself.

Sincere.

And finally............
I asked the good Lord to help me find some answers about my mom, and once
again, He came through for me.
After much (and I do mean MUCH) thinking and praying,
I have hired a part-time caregiver for my mom.
She will be here when I have to work.
Everything seemed to fall into place.....
a recommendation from a trusted friend;
a wonderful woman looking for a part-time job;
and a feeling of peace (with the decision) for Amy.

What more could I ask for?

"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks, it will be opened."
~Luke 11:9-10~

Glad you treated yourself to those Mom. You deserve it!

Good. For. You! And what a sweet comment from your daughter -- she's so right -- you DO deserve all the treats, from the bowl and whisk to some part time help. Loved the little meme. Scotland. Be still my heart -- were we separated at birth? And here's to hoping (or not) you'll get that search before the end of the day LOL!

Oh what a good thing Amy, hiring a little bit of help doesn't hurt at all. I'm happy for that.

Biggest peeve is someone who doesn't listen to you when you talk to them.

If I could live anywhere it would probably be Spain. My Great Grandparents once upon a time lived there.


Nope, can't say I have been searched by the cops.


The one thing on my mind right now is that my husband is doing too too much for someone that just got operated on a couple of months ago. I can't stop him though, he's a workaholic.


I love the Earth song by Michael Jackson.


I wish I could learn to sing, dance really good.


My favorite drink is probably rasberry tea, rasberry coke, and so on.

In one word....earthy


Take care Amy and I am so happy that you can get a little rest. Ask and ye shall receive. Take care.
