Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts?
I am okay with nuts in my food – though I am not too keen on peanut butter. Lately my daughter and I have taken to putting nuts in our salad. The salad is crunchy and more filling – and it is a perfect way to get more protein into our diet (we eat a largely plant-based diet). In addition to the nuts, we add seeds and raisins and/or cranberries.
Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed?
The closet doors need to be closed – if they were open it would annoy me so much I wouldn’t be able to sleep! Open closet doors do not seem to worry the other members in our household so I am always closing them – in the bedrooms, in the hallway, in the kitchen.
Are you usually late, early, or right on time?
I abhor being late and, as a result, I often arrive at meetings, workshops, or social events ahead of time. I always factor in unexpected delays in my travel time and leave home before I should so as not to be late. I do not like to rush so I make sure that I have enough time. I have noticed my younger daughter is a lot like me. She will wake up a little earlier, get ready at a leisurely pace, and leave home so that she can be a little earlier than needed at her destination. The rest of the family is “rush, rush, rush” – and they always arrive a little late!
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?
Yesterday I saw the friend of mine who lives a distance away for one last time before the end of the summer break. I enjoyed the time with her, chatting about things that are happening in our lives and things we would like to do in our futures. We both savoured the time together as we knew it would be a long while until we would see one another again.
What would you answer to any of these questions?
