friday's feast

Appetizer
Name a funny habit you have.

funny? I crunch ice... that's not funny, I use hand gel constantly... nope, not funny...

Soup
If you could instantly know how to play a musical instrument, which one would you pick?

the piano. It just looks like so much fun to sit down and play the piano, making beautiful music.

Salad
How long is your hair?

Probably longer than it should be... several inches below my shoulders. I put in in a ponytail or clip a lot though.

Main Course
When was the last time you forgave someone, and who was it?

wow, that's a tough one. I forgive little things daily because I cannot expect God's forgiveness if I don't forgive. But, I guess the latest major forgiveness I gave was to myself. I was apparently harboring some unforgiveness against myself for Izzy's accident and I have realized that I have to even forgive me. That was the hardest of all.

Dessert
What is your favorite kitchen appliance?

crockpot. hands down :o)... with a close second being the immersion blender (I can't seem to keep from killing) but is perfect for a lot of things from omelets to pancakes, icing, to izzy's protein drinks.

First off...congrats on being the #1 spot!

Love your feast today. Our soups are pretty much the same and I love the honesty you put into your main course.

I forgot about my crockpot!

Crunching ice, lol ! that's indeed funny !

The Gal Herself said...

I found your "main course" about forgiving yourself quite moving. I read a book recently "Saving Graces," in which Elizabeth Edwards talks about how faith and friends helped her deal with the death of her oldest son. I don't mean to be presumptuous, but her book had a huge, positive impact on me and just thought I'd share the title with you.

If I crunched ice . . . let's just say there'd be a lot of pain, screaming, and tooth loss involved.

Lucky girl! :)

What's an immersion blender?

(Sorry . . . I'm a kitchen dweeb.)

Wonderful feast all round, especially your soup and main course. I am very fortunate that I know how to play the piano and it is indeed a beautiful thing. You may be pretty busy as a mum, but I hope you learn to play it someday so you can share in the happiness that playing music brings! When I next sit down at the piano, I will be thinking of you :)
Thank you for sharing your feast :) God Bless!

Imogen said...

Forgiving ourselves is, indeed, one of the hardest things we'll ever have to do!!!

Great feast this week :)

Enjoy the weekend, relax and have fun...

IRENE said...

Crunching ice? I can't do that because I have very fragile teeth, but it must be refreshing!
I believe what you say about the main course. I am so happy for you and for God who gave you the power to heal this part of yourself.
Love,
Irene

Leigh said...

I love your feast Annie and well done on being number 1 - very together of you :)

Your main course is so important - it's difficult sometimes, isn't it?

we have a similar funny habit...

Jodi said...

Amy's Zoo said...

Wow! We have a lot of similiar answers! That's very cool!

Skittles said...

I'm an ice eater, too!

Linda said...

I became an ice cruncher when I was pregnant with my second child. That was 36 years ago so I have many years of crunching. Annie forgiving yourself is the hardest.

Susan said...

I couldn't think of a "funny" habit either. Forgiving yourself is such a HUGE step, isn't it?? Blessings to you...I forgot about the crock pot...I should have thought about that one.

:-) Susan

Michelle said...

Crock pots are awesome! I need to use mine more. Happy FF! Mine is up as well.

Miss Paula said...

The crock pot is a must in the Summertime!!

Tori :) said...

Forgiving yourself is usually the hardest type of forgiveness to give.
You rock Annie.

Mz Jackson said...

I forgot all about the crock pot! It's one of a mother's best friends.
Happy Friday.

Antoinette said...

We picked the same instrument! Hehehe, we could give concerts together :)

Ann said...

just visiting for Friday's feast. I like to crunch ice too(I didn't use that though) and I want to play the piano.

Mandi said...

Oh duh - my crockpot! I forgot THAT's my favorite! Seriously, I love crock pot meals!
Great feast... especially the forgiveness part... that is SO hard to do, forgiving oneself...

Lauren said...

It is always the hardest to forgive ourselves, but when we do, doesn't it feel like a huge burden is lifted???

I love crock pots too. I make dinner a lot at my house and my favorite dish to make is in the crock pot. It's a 5 hour teriyaki chicken...yum!

Coach J said...

I'll agree with those that said that forgiving yourself is the hardest to do! Unless you've been there, you have no idea how hard it is to try and look that woman in the eye. But, thank God for forgiveness and mercy, eh?! :) We are beautiful to Him, and He consumes everything we sacrifice to Him.
