Where’s my window???

This week I booked a window seat (10A) on an American Airlines flight. Somehow I think the airline forgot to put in a window on my side; for sure there was one on the other side of my row.
Moral of the story: be careful when booking a window seat because you just never know what you will (or will not) get but let’s have some fun again: caption this photo!

The Temptation Corner

How would you caption this photo?
And for the record, I tried resisting the temptation but Mickey persistently kept calling my name from his corner of the table aka these treats were really really good 🙂

Waiting Makes Me Restless

“Waiting makes me restless. When I’m ready, I’m ready.”  ~ Reba McEntire

“I wait for the LORD,  my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord more than watchmen for the morning, more than watchmen for the morning.”  ~ Psalms 130:5-6

Everyone who knows me well will tell you: “Gale hates to wait.”  It’s so bad I would rather drive a longer route than sit in traffic.

This is all kind of ironic really, seeing as how a great deal of my life is spent sitting in airports or on tarmacs waiting to travel from one country to another (the latter shown in the photo above which was taken at the Maurice Bishop International Airport in Grenada). I have also spent a lot of my spiritual life in a state of waiting – waiting to hear from God, waiting to know what He wants me to do, waiting until I have no choice but to be brave and take action instead of being a wimp.

After all this time however, I can tell you I am getting better at this waiting thing … well, I am giving it my best effort but admit some days are harder than others. I still hate waiting, but I have learnt that I hate being stressed out from waiting even more than the waiting itself.

Do you like waiting? How do you pass the time when you have no choice but to wait a situation out e.g. at the hairdresser, in a doctor’s office, battling bumper-to-bumper traffic, at the airport when your flight is delayed? Maybe you just don’t mind while others like me go bonkers. Share with us and let’s start a conversation!

Can’t get more satisfying than this

During a visit to Belize, we were served this super tasty salad of fresh fruit and veggies. I had never thought of adding grapes and kiwi to a salad (I usually add a few slices of red apple to my lettuce) but it turned out to be surprisingly yummy and satisfying.

What satisfies you? Do you prefer salad or fries? Maybe a steak and potatoes? Share a little on what satisfies you when it comes to food aka let’s start a conversation 🙂

NYC WPC Photo-Collage

 

“I get out of the taxi and it’s probably the only city which in reality looks better than on the postcards, New York.”
