Happy Thursday!!!

Good morning, dear friends! Forgive my absence yesterday; I was just having a ME day. :) Amy and I went out in the morning, and I took care of show business most of the afternoon. Kenn & I went to turn on heat in the theater space - it's FREEZING in there!!! - and then went to get some Chinese food for dinner. I'd been craving it since Monday. LOL!!
Anyway. Here I am! :) Aren't my flowers pretty??? They were left over from a production at the theater last weekend, and I was allowed to bring a few home. They're SO pretty, and smell sooooo good. There's just something luxurious about the way roses smell - and the feel of their petals, too. They've lasted all week - even the dreenery, which usually starts shedding its fronds. :) I've enjoyed them SO much!
Have you had a blessing like this one this week? Something that's small, but that continues to give you joy and/or pleasure? Share with me! :) I can't tell you how important it is to look for those things, dear one. God keeps putting things like this into our lives; it's one of His ways of showing you how MUCH He loves YOU. Have you enjoyed watching the birds at your feeder? Or watching the sun set? How about your child's hearty laughter? You're SURROUNDED by God's saying, "I love you! Take delight in what I've put around you - that's why it's there!"
So. :) There's a website called Fun, Crafts, & Recipes that, every Friday, puts out four food questions. I just found it, and want to start answering the questions! :D Here were last week's:
Here are this week’s four questions.
#1. Steak. Plain, steak sauce, hot sauce, ketchup or something else?
#2. Water. Flavored, plain, carbonated. How do you like it?
#3. What’s your favorite kind of waffle?
#4. If you could have any one new small appliance for your kitchen what would it be and why?
1. I like my steak with some A1 steak sauce. I always put some Worchestershire sauce, salt, & pepper on before we grill them, but I like the extra TANG of the A1. :)
2. Well, actually, I like the flavoring mix sticks you can put into your bottled water. My favorite lately has been Walmart's version of sugar-free Tang, the orange drink. :) I need to pick some more up, as a matter of fact.... :)
3. Gosh! I don't eat a lot of waffles. I love chocolate chip ones, of course. :) Maine blueberries are good, too. I also like IHOP's harvest grain ones. I'm really not picky! :)
4. Wow. Ummm....Maybe a fry daddy? We have a lot of great appliances already; if I didn't have a Kitchen Aid stand mixer, THAT would be my choice - but I do. :D
Fun questions! I'm looking forward to the next set, coming out tomorrow. :)
OK, dear ones, I'm going to run. I have lots of work I don't want to do still waiting for me. :D I'll see you soon! PLEASE know you are loved; He's waiting to talk to you today. Have you had your conversation with Him?

hey, you're a nasturtium! It's one of my very favorite flowers, and my little gd Lizi is a nasturtium too. She is 11 and likes to participate in some of the bloggy fun!
Lysa's post was very good. I was blessed to have a very good Daddy. I feel so sorry for those who didn't.

I like my steak rare with nothing on it but salt and pepper and a bit of garlic.

I like plain water only.

i prefer pancakes. I could eat 100 waffles and never feel full, as opposed to two pancakes.

I try to stay out of the kitchen :)
actually i am trying to cook more - I would like a deep frying pan.

I feel guilty in that sometimes I dont even think about God til 3 pm. I know He loves me anyway. Your Ken (where did the extra n come from)...used to say in chat and I have always held it close: There is NOTHING we can do that will make Him love us more, and NOTHING we can do to make him love us less. So comforting.

Do you come back and read the entries?

I haven't tried the flavor sticks. I might have to do that since I'm seeing so many people mention them lately.

Thanks for playing Four Foods on Friday. Stumbled.

I haven't tried the flavor sticks.

I have an old fry daddy that has seen it's better days but it's still frying along. Love it to make tortilla chips in.

I forget about those flavor sticks. I need to buy some again. I like a little A1 on my steak too.
