Piddling

I took Monday and Tuesday off from work this week. Monday was mostly spent seeing MR, which meant driving in the pouring rain to City to the East. Traffic jams galore. It took a good portion of the day, but the time was WELL spent. I have felt so free since then. The joy has returned to my work.

Tuesday was a "piddle" day. Do you like to piddle around the house? Oh, I LOVE it! Didn't accomplish one single thing, but it felt great to just clean a bit here and there, read, play Free Cell, peruse different websites. I had it in my mind that I would work on my lecture, but I didn't, and I didn't feel a bit guilty. D and I had a "date" that night--just dinner out and good conversation. I love that. When he asked me how I felt about going back to work the next day, I was able to say "I'm looking forward to it!"

Today is my regular day off. The carpet-cleaning guys are here right now--what a relief it will be to have clean carpet! I'm going to work on my lecture this morning, and who knows? maybe even have time in the afternoon for more piddling! woo-hoo! :-)

Ok, Katherine!
I’m delighted to think up questions with you in mind.
Here are the questions:

1. I remember that you and D are big movie fans.
What movie have you seen recently that you really enjoyed.
Are you looking forward to any of the new films?
2. Tell us about your name. Is there a story behind why you were named
Katherine Elizabeth?
3. I’ve loved reading about your faith journey.
What advice would you offer someone who is wondering how to begin to pen
her/his own faith journey?
4. Do you have some favorite hymns? Tell us why they’re special to you!
5. Gratitude time…. Can you name five reasons for being grateful?

And the bonus question, passed along from RevDr.Kate:
Is there a question you've always wanted someone to ask you but it's never been asked? If so, what is it and what is your response?


And the “mandatory rules”1. If you are interested in being interviewed, leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”2. I will respond by posting five questions for you. I get to pick the questions.3. You will update your blog with a post containing your answers to the questions.4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Katherine, I am so looking forward to reading your replies to Jiff's questions! And I love to think of you piddling. I hadn't heard that term for awhile. It's a delicately lazy sounding word.
