- What’s something you’ve created while improvising in the kitchen?
Aside from a giant pile of dishes to wash? I've made some decent baked chicken concoctions lately: chicken pieces plus spices plus marinade plus baking or frying. I may have finally gotten the hang of this cooking thing.
- In your work, how good are you at winging it?
It's what I do every day. There's really no way to plan my workdays in a fixed way. I prefer a schedule, but...that is not always how things turn out.
- When you travel, how much of your trip do you make up as you go?
I used to plan down to the minute. The trip we just returned from had the following agenda: "Go to rental house. Attend wedding. See family, esp. kids. Visit family at their homes after wedding. Play with kids. See some sights if there's time. Eat good food."
- How structured are your plans for this weekend?
Holy sheet, we have an unbelievable weekend!! Tonight we each have a meeting to attend, half an hour apart, and one car. Tomorrow is Homecoming + college reunion day so we're headed up there, where we hope to also see Sparky. He just called. Because he works in catering on campus, he has worked 10-12 hour days yesterday & today, and will also work long hours tomorrow & Sunday. So, we might NOT see him at all except to wave.
Anyway, we were also invited to a hayride tomorrow night--not gonna make that.
On Sunday, Beast is in charge of the lights and sound booth at church on Sunday, and I teach Sunday School. And then as soon as church is over, we're off to a family birthday party for J. (below) who turned 1 last week. Then we come home and go to bed until I have to go to work Monday. Laundry? Cleaning? Groceries? Nope, not this weekend.
Yes, this is his 'normal' hair!
- What’s something you’ve discovered while wandering around in your neighborhood?
The first Halloween we lived here, Sparky was still (barely) young enough to Trick or Treat. I discovered that it's always uphill into the wind on the way back to our house, no matter which direction we're walking. Especially when it's cold outside, at night.
