Sunday Stealing: Magical Journal

This week's Sunday Stealing was stolen from Big Magic.

1. What’s the best beach or lake day you can remember?

Pretty much any day I want to the beach or the lake was a good day...none of those days stand out as the best day.

2. Describe your ideal picnic lunch:

Sitting at home at the dining room table, surrounded by lots of food and all of my loved ones.

3. What flowers are in your bouquet?

Lilacs, sunflowers, roses and coleus.

4. Silly ways to pass the time during a snowstorm:

Stay in your pajamas all day and drink hot chocolate. Tell ghost stories. 

5. The most beautiful house you’ve ever visited.

I have been in some very nice homes, but none that I would call the most beautiful.

6. Best place you ever dined.

The Louisiana Lagniappe in Destin, Florida.

7. How many layers to your ice cream sandwich

Three layers - cake, ice cream and then more cake.

8. Pretty things which are faux patent leather:

I have owned a few faux patent leather purses that were pretty.

9. What is the best way to eat chocolate.

Rip open the package and eat the chocolate.

10. Describe your unicorn’s special magic:

My unicorn's magic is to teach people how to be kind to each other and to work as a team rather than against each other.

11. All the fruits in your fruit salad:

Grapes, mandarin oranges, cherries, and pineapple in an ambrosia salad.  I also like strawberries, blueberries and raspberries in as a regular fruit salad.

12. Describe the soil, grass, trees, flowers and rocks in your magical forest.

13. The lyrics which move you the most are:

Hello darkness, my old friend
I’ve come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

14. What are the best sauces in the world?

Depends on what you are eating.  I eat a lot of ranch dressing as a sauce.

15. Write a haiku about nature:

Honking geese fly by
Bringing fall to the garden
as the leaves fall down.


  1. Simon and Garfunkel are playing in my ear right now (thanks) AND I want to rip open some chocolate. Loved your answers.

  2. Simon and Garfunkel - always a great choice.

  3. Lulu: "My favorite picnic would be one where people are sneaking me food under the table."
    Java Bean: "What a coincidence! That's my favorite picnic too!"
