1. Do you try to set rules for yourself about how you use your time? Explain.
No, I’m semi retired so I just go with the flow and do whatever I feel like doing. Unless of course I have an appointment or something at a specific day/time.

2. Monday was National Lighthouse Day. Have you ever visited a lighthouse? If not, do you have any desire to see one up close? Of the 10 Most Beautiful that made this list which would you most like to see in person?

Lindau Lighthouse (Germany), Fanad Lighthouse (Ireland), Portland Head Light (Maine), Yaquina Bay Light (Oregon) The St. Augustine Light (Florida), Peggys Point Lighthouse (Canada), Start Point Lighthouse (England), Tower of Hercules (Spain), Bass Harbor Head Station (Maine), and White Shoal Light (Michigan)

I love lighthouses and if you ever came to my house you’d know that right away. My walls all have lighthouse pictures on them, I have lighthouse figurines on most all tables etc., and I even have lighthouse light switch plates. Of the ten listed, I’d like to see the Fanad Lighthouse in Ireland the most because well, it’s in Ireland. I love the St. Augustine Lighthouse and have visited a few times. I’ve even climbed to the top and bought the t-shirt

When you’ve been away, what’s your ‘lighthouse’ telling you you’re on the right road home?
The 301 exit sign on Interstate 75

3. What have you unintentionally stopped doing? Is this something you need to pick back up and begin again, or is it something you need to let go of for now (or even permanently)?
I can’t think of anything I’ve unintentionally, or intentionally, stopped doing

4. We’ve had a full week of August. Share a GRAND moment from your month so far.
My GRAND moment was 2 weekends ago when my son Anthony and I went to the beach. I’d been trying to go for a while, but we’re in our rainy season, so it took a while before we had a decent day.

5. Tell us one song you love with the word ‘baby’ in the title.
Sunspot Baby by ♥ Bob Seger ♥

6. Insert your own random thought here.
You never know what someone is going through, be kind!

  1. Your random thought is very true.
    Enjoy your week!

  2. I especially liked your ‘Random,’ Vicki. Glad you got your beach day in. Have a great rest of your week.

  3. This past week I’ve unintentionally stopped reading. Just too unfocused but as soon as high school starts for the girl I will need to read again for my sanity.

    • My daughter loves having her 2 kids home during the summer, but she told me yesterday that she’s ready for them to go back to school 🙂

  4. I would love to see photos of your lighthouses! I enjoyed reading your hodgepodge, Vicki.

  5. Enjoyed your random comment. It is so true!
    I like lighthouses too and live by one.

  6. Glad you managed to get that beach day in. Great random thought and something I try hard to remember. Have a great week!

    • I was thrilled to go to the beach. It’s not raining as much now so maybe I’ll get to go again this weekend. I hope you have a great week too!

  7. That would. Be a cool post if you showed us your lighthouses. I like them too, and reading stories where they are featured. Have you read The Light Across the Ocean?

    So true, be kind to people! That’s a good motto for us all, everyday.

  8. I love your random thought. It’s oh so true and for selfish reasons I’ve discovered that if I am really nice and polite to strangers I feel better and am happier! I love lighthouses but have only been to the one in Pensacola, FL. I love them though. I love the question about personal lighthouses. I’ve been traveling back and forth to my grandparents’ home quite a bit since they’ve been unwell so this hits home for me! On the way down it’s when I pass the Pike County sign and when I’m heading home it’s crossing the Tennessee river on I65.
