Questions for Friday, April 22nd: (Special thanks to @TylerH2102, @jengacek, Pam,Rachel, and Sandy for their question suggestions! I'd LOVE to link YOU in a future 5QF, just c'mon over to my community and offer up your best question suggestions! It's getting a little sparse over there, so I'd LOVE some more questions to choose from! Also, watch for my weekly Thursday shout out for questions on Twitter [@5crookedhalos]!!)
1. What is your favorite Easter tradition?
I absolutely love going to two services on Easter. The first one is the Maundy Thursday service, I always feel that by going to this service it allows me to start to focus on Easter and its meaning. I also love the early morning Sunday services which I think is beautiful, I love how they start by lighthing the candle and the dark church slowly fills up with light.
Unfortunately I didnt get to go last night since the weather was just miserable and Brenda was not feeling well, and then on Sunday I am helping with the babies at the 8:30 service, so not sure if I will get to the early one either.
Of course, I also love roast lamb on Easter Sunday.
2. Are you a "shower" or a "long, hot bath" kind of person?
Once again, a bit of both. I love a shower, it makes me feel refreshed and clean, and definitely on a work day it is quick and easy. However, sometimes nothing beats a nice, long bath. I love to take a book and a drink into the bath and read for ages in the bath. I keep adding hot water as the water cools. I dont get to do that very often though.
3. Can you parallel park and if so when is the last time you did it?
I can parallel park, but prefer not to if I can help it. The last time I did it was in Umhlanga about 6 weeks ago.
4. What is your favorite Easter candy?
Two things, which I definitely was not able to get when I lived in the UK, so not sure if you get them in the US either.
First one is marshmallow eggs. This is a flattish (around 2cm thick oval disk of marshmallow, it has a yellow centre with white around the outside, so it looks like a thick fried egg. The whole thing is then covered in chocolate. A real favourite in my house and they are relatively fat free in comparison to other chocolate eggs. Sorry for the tiny picture, it was the only one I could find.
