What do you value most in a friendship?

Loyalty and an unfailingly inappropriate sense of humor.

Do you prefer eating the frosting of the cake or the cupcake first?  Do you prefer a specific flavor?

I much prefer the cake.  A thin layer of frosting that compliments it is cool – then I’ll eat a little frosting with each bite.  But those commercial cupcakes sold with two inches of frosting on top?  No way.  I just scrape that stuff off and enjoy my cake.  I’ll eat pretty much all the flavors but these days I love red velvet.

Have you ever been in a submarine?  If you haven’t, would you want to?

Never have been, never will be.  Putting aside the whole rocking through water and the Dive! Dive! Dive! moment…I am far too claustrophobic to close myself in a submarine and dunk myself in the ocean.

If 100 people your age were chosen at random, how many do you think you’d find leading a more satisfying life than yours?

Oh, that’s a tricky one, but I really don’t think I’d find anyone.  I might be curious at the thought of living an entirely different life – in a quirky city, on a ranch with land and horses – but I really am quite satisfied in my own little corner of the world.  We have more than we need, and I’ve been blessed with the chance to spend my time doing things that matter to me.  Can’t ask for much more than that.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Last week saw the start of a major home project, so that’s exciting.  The dogs have not been happy to have painters in the house and feel free to express their discontent through hours of whining, but I’m confident they’ll make it through.

Hopefully this week the painters will finish up and we’ll see the results.  Just watching some of the walls get a fresh coat feels like we’re starting over clean…it’s a pretty nice feeling.
