J is for _____________

August 12th, 2011

JOVIAL – not much of an cryer or a melancholy soul – laughing is more my speed.

JUDICIOUS – I think I have pretty good judgement – my life experience has given me a good foundation for making wise decisions. I definitely look to the future and try to plan ahead.

JUMPY – I’m easily startled. Probably because I’m always engrossed in thought.

JIGSAW PUZZLES – I find working puzzles to be relaxing and fun. In the winter we often have a jigsaw puzzle on the table for those spare moments.

JADED – because of some life experiences I can be a bit jaded in certain areas – perhaps I should say realistic more than jaded.

What words/phrases describe you that start with a J?

    …You forgot “joyful”. Just from the time that I’ve been reading here I love that you always show joy in new shoots that are making their debut in the garden, or the tomato blossoms that appear, flowers that you thought wouldn’t return and did… I know as a gardener I am the same way. I come running in the house to tell my husband, “we’ve got a tomato turning!” or “beans are coming up” or “poppies are about to bloom”. Pure joy. :o)

    …Enjoy your day!

    …Blessings :o)

    You have some nice J’s. I am jumpy, for the same reasons you are. Especially outside working in the yard and garden. Jigsaw’s in the winter for me too. Emily

    I am trying to make my rounds and leave comments on the different blogs that are participating. I can’t seem to post anything over at Candie’s – “Finding my Roots” blog. I can write a comment and can see the word to type the word verification, but can’t see the box to type it in or the submit button. Thought I would put the word out here in case she stops in to read comments.
