Friday Feast


If you'd like to read for Friday's Feast-ers, or, if you'd like to participate, click here!


Appetizer

When someone smiles at you, do you smile back?
Yes! It's contagious!

Soup

Describe the flooring in your home. Do you have carpet, hardwood, vinyl, a mix?
Hard wood living room and ceramic tile kitchen, breakfast room, dining room, and powder room downstairs. Carpeted stairs and upstairs bedrooms, and crummy linoleum in the upstairs bathrooms. I'm not fond of any of it, though! I like the way the wood and tile look, but I don't like the way they feel on bare feet, and our carpet is so old and needs to be replaced.

Salad

Write a sentence with only 5 words, but all of the words have to start with the first letter of your first name.
Did Diana dance during December?

Main Course

Do you know anyone whose life has been touched by adoption?
Yes, a friend and co-worker has an adopted daughter the same age as my children. When I was trying to conceive, I had an ectopic pregnancy and two miscarriages (that I know of for sure), and then I couldn't get pregnant again for a while because of a benign tumor blocking one tube and scar tissue in the other. Adoption was looking like a viable option for us until I met the most fabulous reproductive endocrinologist who got me all fixed up. I was blessed, and now I have my beautiful twins, soon to be 12 years old.

Dessert

Name 2 blue things.
Bluebonnets (Texas state flower, although they are arguably purple) and the sky on a clear day.

How wonderful that your twins came along! Sometimes when adoption doesn't work out, as I found, there's wisdom in that too.

My sister adopted two children. Her son she brought home from the hospital when he was 3 days old. her daughter came to her at the age of 13. Joys and challenges as with any children.

have to say hmmmmm
about the bluebonnets

Jean at Penny Lane said...

oops! I did not comment here on Friday! Forgive me but you get a comment on Sunday!

I can understand about the crummy carpet. Ours is in the same areas and is only 5 years old and it looks awful. Maybe we need to get out of the house more to save the carpet? LOL

I like your sentence and Bluebonnets is really a great answer even though as you say, they are closer to purple. It's the name that counts.
