Simple Diary

Rainy Christmas Eve: Check.
Chaotic Family Get-Together with the family: Check.
Lots of good food and good times: Check.

Tonight, I received a little book that will hopefully keep me blogging more frequently. It's packed full of random nuggets of questions, quotes, and wisdom. It is called "Keel's Simple Diary." There is a page for each day. There are several multiple choice questions and statements, and some fill-in-the-blank opportunities. I love it. I will try to share the more interesting days that I fill out. Here is tonight's entry, as well as my introduction sheet.

(All of the options I chose are BOLDED. All of my extra comments are in blue.)

Congratulations. You got Simple Diary in ROYAL BLUE.

This could mean that you
a) like Porto Ercole. I had no idea what this is- in fact, until I googled it, I thought it was a person.
b) are a thinker. Well, and I'm a Feeler, but I also think a lot. About everything.
c) dislike muffins. Untrue! I love muffins.

What you might need right now:
1. someone to tell you 
2. Oscar Peterson
3. stop your nicety!
4. less salt on French fries
5. cosmic breeding
6. trim the hedges
7. racing stripes
8. a hummingbird
9. goodwill There is a lot of goodwill in my life; but somehow, I was still drawn to this answer. I love "nice" people, and those who do good.
10. a light suitcase

Plural kills the fantasy, orchids last longer.
Not if the orchard is living with me!

In so many ways, you can't wait for this: Africa
I am so excited to be traveling to Zambia, Africa for 10 days at the end of January! I'm going with a team of others, and I be capturing our trip through photography and video. I can't to see how God uses this trip, and I also hope to be able to put together some media/art for Lifesong for Orphans when I return (we are taking the trip through this organization).

Royal blue is a relief and interestingly
a) flattering. This color IS so flattering. I really like it a lot.
b) works well on blonde. This is true, but the answer I chose is all-encompassing, because royal blue also looks good on brunettes and red heads.
c) unfashionable Untrue!

REMARKABLE
insatiable patience
palms by sunset What could be more remarkable than this?
united molecules

MEDIOCRE
long explanations
skim milk duds Go for the real deal, if you're going to have milk duds. Except I do use skim milk in my cereal.
uptight anxiety stuff

Your day was:
a party
a U-turn
a smarty

Explain: Christmas Eve w/the fam- it was a chaotic party!

FEELING AT HOME
1. Opening an organized, odorless refrigerator filled with everything you like.
2. A mess of your own making, reassuring diversions to keep you busy and engaged in every corner. This definitely describes "feeling at home" to me.
3. The same person or animal that sometimes makes you want to leave your home.

If it's not there, there's nothing to find out.
I really like this quote.

Are you at peace with your hair?
a) yes Truly! A rare moment, trust me... I mean, I never usually hate my hair, but I get bored of it quickly. 
b) no

With respect to your generosity:
a) no comment
b) some take advantage
c) fifty-fifty There are plenty of people who are generous to me in return, so I have to go with 50/50.

*You will either enjoy this as much as me, or you will be someone who reads this and doesn't quite understand why I would spend my time with something like this. I seriously love stuff like this-- and, I think it is a great conversation started for blog material! Thus the comments in blue. I can never just fill out questions like these and then not have additional feedback. =)

Enjoy! Love you all.
