It’s time to start painting my Christmas gift bags for this year. I finished the first two late last night. It’s one of my favorite holiday activities.
Sorry I could not find the original creator of this artwork to give credit, but it’s one of my favorite Christmas graphics.

Question # 1: When you leave a room, do you turn the lights off behind you or keep the lights on throughout your house most of the time?
I leave a lot of lights on in my house. When I was growing up, my dad always taught us to turn the light out in a room when we left it. He was very adamant about it. But I love light, and I find it very hard to make myself do that now. I don’t have lights on in every room in the house, but generally there’s light in my living room, kitchen, and back foyer area — as well as a light on the front porch.
Question # 2: What do you feel is the most enjoyable way to spend $500?
Buying gifts for other people.
Question # 3: Complete this sentence: My favorite thing to do on my cell phone is…
Nothing. For me a cell phone is simply a tool to have available in case of an emergency when I’m away from home, or if I know someone will need to contact me when I’m away from home.
I have very strong feelings about the insanity of being addicted to cell phones and people who interrupt conversations with one person every time their cell phone dings and they want to see what some other person has to say. I’m fed up with being “put on hold’ every time a call or text comes into someone’s phone when they are supposed to be interested in talking to me, and I’ve about decided that the next time it happens, I’m going to terminate the conversation and walk away. And the next time I have to stand in line behind someone at a check-out lane who will not stop talking or texting long enough to let the clerk finish that order, I may give them a good piece of my mind.
That conversation would be mild compared to what I’d have to say to the thousands of people who still text and drive. The idiots just insist that they can do both things at once, but they cannot do both things safely. Then there are those who do not send a text while they are driving, but they will read someone else’s text while flying down the road at 50 miles an hour. They all need to have their license revoked. Better that than give them a chance to murder someone with their irresponsible actions.
(Just a little venting — since this question offered such a great opportunity.)
Question # 4: What inspired you this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
I’m always inspired by the beauty of Christmas art. This wallpaper picture especially caught my attention recently. If you enjoy this kind of photo and graphic art, you can find much more at this link to wallpapersafari.com.
