52 Lists #43 - Conversation Starters

This post contains affiliate links - using affiliate links from Homeschool Coffee Break helps fuel this blog and our homeschool - thank you!

This week's list is a little different and fun - a list of categories and either/or questions that might spark some conversations. See details and more lists at 52 Lists at Beauty Full Slow

I took a look at these questions and realized my challenge - I have a terrible time picking just one favorite thing; and most of the either/or choices will have an answer that starts out with "well, it depends . . ." Nevertheless, here we go!

Favorites:
  • Favorite Color - I'm going to say blue, because I like almost every shade of blue, and it's a good go-to color for me to decorate with and to wear.
  • Favorite Season - Probably autumn, although I tend to like whatever season I'm in. But I love autumn weather, it's the start of a school year, it's World Series time, and hockey season is starting, and so much more.
  • Favorite Holiday - Hmmm. Christmas or Thanksgiving, tough choice.
  • Favorite Flower - I have especially loved daisies (and all daisy-like flowers) and tulips for as long as I can remember.
  • Favorite Bible Verse - I have many favorites. One I especially like, and a passage that came to mind as I thought about this is from Psalm 16:
 Keep me safe, my God, for in you I take refuge.
I say to the LORD, "You are my LORD; 
apart from you I have no good thing.

LORD, you alone are my portion and cup;
 you make my lot secure.
The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; 
surely I have a delightful inheritance. 
I will praise the LORD, who counsels me; 
even at night, my heart instructs me. 
I keep my eyes always on the LORD. 
With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure,

You make known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence;
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

Black-Eyed Susans - among my favorites!


Either/Or: 
  • Bath or Shower?  I prefer a bath, but obviously a shower is so much better for washing my hair!
  • Coffee, Tea, or Cocoa? Coffee, of course!
  • Mountains or Beach?  Mountains.
  • Vintage or Modern?  I more often lean towards the vintage.
  • Movie or Book?  Book.
  • Store Bought or Homemade?   Homemade.
  • Meats or Veggies or Both?  Meat. I'm a picky eater, and especially picky about veggies.
  • Homebody or Social Butterfly?   Social butterfly.
  • Creature of Habit or Spur of the Moment?  Oh man. This is one where I really do have to say that it's a toss-up. I sure have my routines that I can't break (coffee in the morning comes to mind!) but I also like being spontaneous.
  • Picnic or Restaurant? Restaurant!
  • Hugs or Kisses?  Hugs.
  • Early Bird or Night Owl?  My natural tendency is Night Owl, but years of early rising has made me pretty comfortable being an Early Bird too.
  • Boots or Sandals?  Goodness, I just love shoes, so both. 
  • Adventurous or Cautious?  Usually more adventurous.
  • Comedy or Mystery? Oooh, I like both, but if I have to choose - comedy.
  • Noise or Silence?  Noise, if it's music.
  • Inside or Outside?  Inside.
  • Save or Spend?  Honestly, I tend to spend.
  • Spicy or Mild?  Medium. I love me some spicy, but my chronic heartburn says "no".

Great job! I found I wanted to explain so many of my answers too. I enjoy baths for relaxing and reading but usually take a shower for convenience and time.
