WWTKW: Leisurely Activities

It’s Wednesday, so you all know what time it is!


Time to link up with Scriptor & Kenzie for We Want to Know Wednesday!  This week, we’re talking leisurely activities.

Here are this week’s questions:

1. What is one thing you are never too busy for?

2. What is/are your favorite show(s)?

3. Would you rather get a pedicure or a manicure?

4. How do you spend your day when the weather is sunny and warm?

5. When is the last time you went on a picnic?

Bonus. What is your favorite thing to eat/bring to a picnic?

My answers:

1. What is one thing you are never too busy for?  This is probably going to sound seriously lame, and it’s only been in recent months, but I’ve come to realize I have to make time in my day for some form of exercise.  I feel so much better about myself after a work-out or a walk – I feel more calm & refreshed, clear-headed & happy.  So making time in my day for TurboFire, or some other form of exercise, has become imperative.  And I won’t allow myself to be “too busy for it”.  (and yes, I know that’s easy for me to say, being that I’m single and have no children… lol.  But I feel it’s really part of my “routine” now.)

Exercise to have fun

2. What is/are your favorite show(s)?   Now, see, I was going to try really hard today to not bring up anything Prison Break-related, but now I have official permission.  PRISON BREAK.  Oh my God, I love it.   I can’t believe I didn’t watch this show when it was actually on the air, but I’m so glad I’ve discovered it.  I’m totally – TOTALLY – hooked.


Other favourites would have to include Friends, The Big Bang Theory, Friday Night Lights, The Vampire Diaries, Sex & The City, and Grey’s Anatomy.  Although, at this time in my life, I honestly don’t think any one of them holds a candle to my absolute and utter adoration for Michael Scofield right now.

3. Would you rather get a pedicure or a manicure?  Pedicure, please!  I try to keep my nails pretty on a regular basis, but I put off doing the toes as long as possible.  It’s so nice to have someone else look after them for me!  The foot soak, the scrubs, the massage, the special attention that I don’t always give my tootsies… I only wish I could get pedicures more often.  They are a rare treat.


4. How do you spend your day when the weather is sunny and warm?   When the sun is out and the weather is warm, I love to get out for a walk around town, and then relax, either on my back deck or my mom’s patio, with a good book, some tunes, and a cold drink.  As much as I love winter, I’m looking forward to those days!

5. When is the last time you went on a picnic?  Can’t say I’ve gone on many picnics in my lifetime! LOL!  Probably our church’s Sunday School Picnic last June would have to be the most recent one!

Bonus. What is your favorite thing to eat/bring to a picnic?  Picnics make me think of sandwiches and salads – cheeses and pickles – chips and lemonade.   I remember making Stacie’s Grape Salad for a church picnic once and it was a hit!  Yummy!

That is so great that you always have time for exercising! Exercise is so good for your health, body, and mind :D
I LOVE Prison Break! My cousin and I had a Prison Break marathon a couple years ago. I'm going to have to watch it again. & I am totally obsessed with the Vampire Diaries right now!
I am dying to go on a picnic after reading the answers to that question ha ha!
Thank you so much for linking up with us!!

you know I started doing that c25k last fall and then it got cold and I quit, I know what you're saying about feeling better after you exercise. I just felt better about myself. Mark finally got me a new elliptical that fits in the house again because I was feeling sorry for myself.

Nicole said...

Wow I read your post and couldn't remember if I commented or not, which I did, but I still think it warrants another comment just because :) so hi... lol :)

Great answers! I should have put the Big Bang Theory on my list, too!

You are so right that we should never be too busy for exercise. Our health should come first! I'm trying to talk myself out of skipping Pilates class today, LOL!

Jolene said...

I love Big Bang Theory! I admire you for the exercise. I wish I could be that devoted. :/

I am definitely going to have to try your grape salad. It looks Yumo!

I am so impressed with your exercise routine.....I can't stand to miss my water aerobics class. Even when I have so much homework I should stay home, I go, work out, laugh with my friends and feel great afterwords. I love the Sunday School picnic! Last picnic....I have been at school in the summer for the past five years, so not too many picnics, except last summer when it was ridiculously hot and we all went to Lac Phillipe.

Did I hear you want summer?????
