The Friday Five

The Friday Five is an interesting concept. The creator of the "Five" posts 5 questions each Friday (hence the name) and you can use these questions as fodder for your weblog. (or journal, or family discussion, whatever) This week I am joining in so you can learn a little more about me.

When was the last time you...

1. ...sent a handwritten letter?

I don't think I have sent a handwritten letter in years, possibily even a decade. The bulk of my communications is by email. Even my parents, well into their 60's have a computer and are capable of both email and instant messaging.

2. ...baked something from scratch or made something by hand?

I don't bake a lot during the rest of the year, but each year, in December, I bake between 70 and 80 dozen cookies for our annual open house. That said, I helped to make Pasta alla telefono last night for the family.

3. ...camped in a tent?

It has been years since we camped, but we still have the equipment in the closet. My son is now old enough to go camping, I think, so this may be back on the agenda very soon. We used to volunteer at a visitor's center in the Angeles National Forest and would often camp out after working our 8 hour shift. It is funny that this is one of today's questions, as I have been actively thinking about camping recently. Maybe this will be the push I need to get back out into the forest.

4. ...volunteered your time to church, school, or community?

I haven't done any volunteer work lately, but I was giving free Internet classes at my local library until it was closed for remodeling. I hope to restart the classes when the branch re-opens later this year.

5. ...helped a stranger?

This seems to happen quite frequently to me. I must look like I know where I am going as I am always being asked for directions. Whenever I hear someone who is confused or unsure of something I will often ask if I can help them. I can't remember anything recently, but it seems to happen almost every time we go out, whether we are far away from home or walking through the neighborhood.
