UnconsciousMutterings#25 & Fall Quiz

Make Room for Small Reflections
Scroll down for Unconscious Mutterings
Photobucket
I'm grateful for resources like Photobucket where graphics like this 'Good-bye Summer Hello Fall' can be found. Perhaps one day I'll be able to create such things myself ... but for today, I'd like to thank Sissiz28 (and others) for making this Fall graphic (and many more) available. Although I don't yet fully understand just how this site works, I've finally created a 'free account' of my own there and have learned to 'copy' graphics to my 'album' there to avoid having them 'disappear suddenly & unexpectedly' (without any notification) from my posts. There's so much I still need to learn in this 'virtual world' ... and I'm grateful for the opportunity to do so.

I'm participating for the 25th time today.
How about you?


What comes to YOUR mind?

If you'd like to play here, copy and paste the clues in comments along with your responses ... or post on your blog and let me know so I can visit ;--)

Your Autumn Test Results

You are an energetic, warm, optimistic person. You approach everything with a lot of enthusiasm. Methinks that's an accurate assessment.

When you are happiest, you are calm. You appreciate tradition and family. You enjoy feeling cozy. Yup ... this is true of me for sure.

You tend to be afraid of change. You are never ready for things to be different. For much of my life this was true, but not so much any more.

You find love to be the most comforting thing in the world. You feel at peace when you're with your loved ones. Perhaps so, but my loved ones aren't close enough to spend time together ... except on the phone. I did have a nice chat with my sister last night before sleep.

Your ideal day is active and full. You like to keep busy with your favorite things, and you appreciate a routine. Hmmm ... this was more true of me when I was younger. These days I'd rather do less and enjoy it more. As for routine, sometimes that's a good thing still ... but not always.

You are very impatient. You spend more time waiting for something than actually enjoying it. This doesn't 'ring true' for me ...

If you decide to take the quiz, I hope you'll either share your results in comments and/or on your Blog and leave a link to your blog so I can read your results. As an incentive, I offer the following award to enjoy and share ... just because.

I had all of the same results as you to the autumn test except one. Instead of love, I got this.

You find hard work to be the most comforting thing in the world. You like the feeling of accomplishing something.

You are a playful, spirited person. You have a limitless imagination and amazing creative talents.

When you're happiest, you are outgoing and expressive . You love celebrations, and you enjoy showing off a little.

You prefer change to come slowly. You need a long transition period when your life changes.

You find love to be the most comforting thing in the world. You feel at peace when you're with your loved ones.

Your ideal day is active and full. You like to keep busy with your favorite things, and you appreciate a routine.

I love the graphic you picked up at PhotoBucket. I have an account there but haven't noticed any graphics. I'll have to check this out.

Enjoyed reading your answers to the meme.

Have a great week.

Oh dear....I had to go back and read the sunrise/sunset rules. I thought I messed up somehow, but it only says that the photo MUST be mine..which today's photo is. Just one I've already posted before. LOL You really had me going.

I too love that animated Fall graphic you found. That is REALLY cool.

I see we both thought of surrender for #10. Yay!!!

Okay, now I gotta go take the Autumn test and see what I get.

Hope your Sunday treated you well and that your evening will be a peaceful one.

I really enjoyed the insight of the autumn quote, Storyteller. :)
