Sacred Life Sunday: Inner Peace

i'd been a bit under the weather the past few days - hence the silence... also the lack of daylight is getting to me. thank goodness after next friday the days will ever so slowly lengthen...
i promised myself i would tackle this meme from carla's blog, so hear goes...
Do you own a gun? No

What do you think of hot dogs? i never buy from vendors, but i love homemade - nick makes the most scrummy onions - sooooo sweet and crispy... we actually had them last night :o)

Can you do push-ups? i wish!!

What’s your favourite piece of jewelry? My inner peace
ring - see pic - i wear it every day.

What is your secret weapon to lure the opposite sex? i don't think i've ever had a 'weapon' - i'm a peace-loving soul...

What is your favourite holiday? definitely Thanksgiving - the food, the family togetherness, the lack of expectations - i really miss it now we're not in the states

Claire - I enjoyed reading your answers and becoming better acquainted in this way. I love the inner peace ring and have sent you email about Etsy. It looks like the woman who sold it to you has one in my size and I'm hoping you can help me out. I'm not sure I'm up for such a lengthy meme, but I'm glad you were!
Hugs and blessings

This was wonderful...I love your answers. I had no idea you were a mom! That's wonderful!

I've learned to love the gray--even rainy days. I used to hate them, but now that I live in Manhattan, I realize they make everything cleaner, even the air. And, the moist air is good for my skin...and the few plants we have here.

ps. thanksgiving is my favorite holiday too!
