New Year New Hodgepodge   Decided to do this after seeing it on a friends blog, even though I'm a late participant!!!

1. What are three words you would use to describe your 2011?  
Hardest - we lost our lovely daughter to cancer on May 19th
Overcomers - because our Triune God was with us every step of the way and with Him we are overcomers.
Debt free - Totally debt free!!!!

2. Do you like shrimp? What's your favorite way to have it prepared?
I enjoy good fried shrimp when eating out.  I don't really "prepare" it.

3. Is your house de-Christmased? If so when did you tackle that job? If not, when will the decorations come down?
Due to this being our "first" Christmas without Suzette we choose to not put up any decorations this year.  If we had they would have been down by Dec. 31st.

4. Do you like to watch scary movies?
Not a big movie watch in the first place and definitely NOT scary ones.  Didn't even like them as a child.

5. ice skating~sledding~skiing~snowboarding~of the four listed which wintertime activity do you most enjoy?
None - I enjoy sitting by the fire drinking coffee or hot chocolate :o)

6. Did you have a childhood hideout? Describe it.
I had 2 - We had a chicken house that my father had converted to a darling playhouse for me.  I spent MANY hours there and loved it.  Second - my friend and I would climb up on top of the metal roof of our garage and watch the clouds, seeing what they looked like and telling our "secrets".

7. What's a place or space that motivates you?
Anytime I am in a small group of prayer or Bible Study.  My "special" private place is the large leather recliner in my living room with all my books & Bibles by my side.

Also, here in my office on this computer when I am motivated by some of the blogs I follow.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I am so looking forward to this NEW YEAR and all that God will show me and where HE will lead me.

That is pretty fun to do isn't it? She posts the questions on Tuesday (in case you didn't see that info on her blog). That way we have a day to get it up. I actually linked mine up last night before going to bed.
It's also jogged my memory on some other post I'd like to write.
Glad you joined in!
