A decision from history: This chair still sits in the Assembly Room of the Pennsylvania State House (Independence Hall). Legend has it that it was George Washington's chair, the back carved with a half sun. Benjamin Franklin would look at it and wonder whether it was a rising or a setting sun. Eventually Franklin decided it was the hopeful symbol of the rising sun, a sign of the future of our new republic.
How do you decide? Which of the following pairs appeals to you most? Share your choices with the RevGalBlogPals.
1) Sunrise or sunset?
Sunset ~ I grew up watching the sun set behind Lookout Mountain. I have just moved from St. Elmo, on the eastern side of that mountain, to a part of town where the setting sun shines in the small side window of my new bedroom.

2) To the mountains or to the beach?
Beach ~ I live surrounded by a bowl of mountains, so I occasionally go TO the beach for vacations. (But I wouldn't want to live there.)3) Coffee or tea?
Tea ~ I've never liked the taste of coffee, but I drink tea all the time. It's so hot today that I stopped at Walgreen's to buy a bottle of cold tea, discovered it was on sale for half price, and bought four.4) Advent or Lent?
Advent ~ Being a joyful person, I like the pink "Joy" candle among the purple ones, representing the four Sundays before Christmas.
5) "Raindrops on roses" or "whiskers on kittens"?
Whiskers on kittens ~ Even though I didn't know Kiki as a kitten, she was only a year old when I got her, running and very active whether she was playing inside or outside. Here's a photo that shows her whiskers (click to enlarge).For those of you who may be concerned by Kiki's Caturday post, she actually likes our new place.
