Thank you for joining me in welcoming…Jeanette Levellie!!
Jeanette and I met through blogging, and if you aren’t familiar with her, be prepared to fall in love! She’s such a generous, warm, hilarious writer. I’m thrilled to be hosting her—and get this—her debut humor devotion book, Two Scoops of Grace with Chuckles on Top, releases April 10! Congratulations, Jeanette!
Let’s get to it!
1. Beverage of choice?
5:30 a.m.: coffee, dark roast, prepared in a French press. My bushy-bearded hero gets up at 4:30 a.m. to grind beans and brings me coffee in bed. In the afternoons, I usually have a cup of Tazo Awake tea, and drink herbal tea and water the rest of the day. I am a water fiend.
2. Any pets?
No pets. But I have four babies wearing fur suits. Rocky is a long-haired white and orange male, who purrs whenever he’s near a human; Happy is a brown tabby who snuggles with Rocky, Puddin’ is a pure black female who hides when company comes, and Jolly is a black and white who’s so gregarious that the neighborhood kids ask if he can come out and play!
3. Dream vacation?
Do they have a cruise to Ireland? When I pay off my car this year, I’m saving for a cruise, and I’ve wanted to visit Ireland for many years. My grandmother was a Kelly, and I’d like to see the thousand shades of green Ireland is famous for.
4. What are you listening to right now?
Nothing. Blissful peace and quiet after a long day at the office supply store I manage. My customers are mostly great, but I get a few who pinch my patience and increase my prayer life. When I see them come in, I beg God for grace, or run to the bathroom and “let” my admin assistant deal with them.
5. What's for dinner?
Tonight I cooked Italian Chicken Chests. This is the only recipe in my book, Two Scoops of Grace with Chuckles on Top, which releases April 10th. The recipe accompanies the chapter entitled, Can Preachers Have Sex on Sundays? The reason we call them chicken chests is that, well… you’ll just have to get the book and read it for yourself!
Jeanette, your bushy-bearded hero sounds wonderful! Coffee in bed? Yes! And I snorted in laughter about the customers who increase your prayer life. I was a waitress for years, and I know exactly where you’re coming from. Your furry babies sound so sweet! Kitties are my favorite.
I would love to go to Ireland. There must be a cruise, right? It would be amazing to see the green hills from the sea. Is that even possible? I don’t know! It sounds good, though! And I’m dying to read the chapter about the chicken chests. Ha!! Thanks so much for being my guest today!
