"I can't change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination." ~Jimmy Dean

Thanks, everyone, for your kind words yesterday...that's why I love cyberworld!

And because I am at the end of a long week and fresh out of new ideas, here's the Friday Feast. Enjoy!

Do you consider yourself to be an optimist or a pessimist?

I'd say 80% of the time, I'm an optimist. Every once in a while the pessimist side rears its ugly head, though, and I'll spend a few philosophical hours wondering the point of any of my efforts, since in the very grand scheme of things, we live such a short time and have such little (if any) lasting effect on the world.

What is your favorite color of ink to write with?


How often do you get a manicure or pedicure? Do you do them yourself or go to a salon and pay for them?

During the summer, I get pedicures at a salon about once/month. In the winter, rarely to never, or I do them myself. (c'mon, it's like shaving - who's going to see your legs and your feet when it's 20 degrees outside??) And I never, never get manicures. I use my hands way too much...between doing dishes and playing the piano, the polish comes off the next day.

Main Course
Have you ever won anything online? If so, what was it?

I've won books in different writer's contests. For me as an author, that's a pretty cool prize.

In which room in your house do you keep your home computer?

Desktop: the office.
Laptop: anywhere I am and need to write...

I'd never really thought about ink, but apparently I prefer black! I looked at all my pens and every last one is black ink. That's kind of funny...


Have a great weekend!

I can't write with a pen that doesn't have blue ink.

Have a good weekend!

Happy Friday! I like black ink. I also like the pen to write with a very fine line. I am with you on the pessimist/optimist view. Sometimes, I think I could use several lifetimes to really do and accomplish all that I want in this world. Take care, Cindi

Great feast today! Congrats on your winnings!

Mine’s up…come on over.

Also, I’d like to ask you to answer the question I have in the post below my feast. THANKS!

Have a wonderful weekend!

That's the same answer for my laptop. :D
