Friday Five- some essentials...

Songbird's question for today is accompanied by the song "Take Me, Baby. or Leave Me". She inquires:

Whether it's new friends or new loves or new employers, what are five things people should know about you?

And I reply:

1. I love to listen. I really do. So, in conversation, if you think that I'm not disclosing enough about myself, it's because I'm genuinely interested in your story.

2. I'm only a borderline extrovert. I really need some time alone, now and again, to recharge.

3. Although I am an only child, I think I was really meant to have a bunch of siblings.

4. I have no confidence in the areas of home decorating or accessorizing.

5. I'm not certain what I want to be when I grow up.

Quilt by Leanne Beasley.

You need to meet St. Casserole! She excels at #4. But if you approached those tasks the way you do picking images for this blog, I'm sure you would be fine.

Love the quilt picture. We so click on some of your answers--I'm also an only child and still don't know what I want to be when I grow up, though I'm almost 60 (in two years)and I don't know how to think of color in my house!

As for me, I have no SKILL in the areas of home decorating or accessorizing!

as I sit in my cat-scratched chair in the living room that is otherwise filled with grandmother's hand me down furniture, I can relate! Great play!

I really don't expend a lot of energy on decorating. There are just so many other things to worry about.

Loved your answers.

I am as 50/50 as a person can be on I/E scale of the Meyers-Briggs. I identify with #2 for sure.

I love to listen, too, Jennifer. (Somehow, I'm not surprised that we are in sync about that.) People intrigue me.

And I'm with you on the Introvert/Extrovert scale, too. I'm thankful that I have enough E in me to love being with my congregants. They can really energize me.

I just have a sense that you are an amazing pastor.

yes, love the quilt and your answer to #5. :)

I feel kinda like that myself, sometimes.
