When I packed for Costa Rica, one of the things that went into our suitcase was a very special leather bound journal; a retirement gift from the students of Lougheed School. It’s travelled to many interesting places over the past four and a half years but it still had enough pages left to record the highlights of this trip. I planned to refer to it when we got home and I resumed blogging but unfortunately, though we got home in the wee hours of this morning, the suitcase containing the journal did not! In fact, I watched from my window seat as the baggage handlers at the Houston airport failed to put it onto the plane yesterday afternoon and was powerless to do anything about it! I have no idea why they wouldn’t load it but the return trip was a comedy of errors from beginning to end and included an unscheduled overnight stay in Houston. That’s a story for another day, however. In the meantime, suffice it to say that we had an absolutely awesome time which, try as they might, Continental Airlines was not able to spoil!
For today, however, my brain is too tired to handle anything beyond following the example of my blogging buddy, Donloree, and answering some random questions about myself. Perhaps some of you who have only met me through the blogosphere will learn a little more about me today…
- What’s the most interesting or moving book you’ve ever read?
- Which do you prefer: the book or the movie?
- If you could move to anywhere tomorrow, where would it be?
- What’s the one thing in life that you can’t leave the house without?
My glasses. I’ve been wearing them since I was two and I’m pretty useless without them.
- What’s the furthest place you’ve flown to?
- If you could be anyone for a day, who would it be?
- What is one word that best describes you? (only one)
- What’s been your greatest accomplishment to date?
- What’s your favourite type of food?
- What’s one nickname you have?
- What’s the best thing you did in 2011?
Spent the summer working as a short term missionary alongside my husband providing summer ministry coverage for Living Hope Church of the Nazarene on Saipan.
So, now that you know a little more about me, what about you?
It’s your turn!
And yes, I’ll be back very soon to share more about our Costa Rican adventure. Hopefully, the suitcase will find it’s way home and I’ll have the journal to help me out!
