Do you prefer a bath or shower?

Always a shower.

What do you do to make a living or during the day? If you are retired what mostly occupies your day? Or if you are a student what are you studying?

I’m no longer working.  I spend time on my laptop, watch TV.  Watch a lot of YouTube documentaries on ancient cultures so I guess I can say that I am learning.  I make sure all the bills are paid and accounts are balanced.  I love doing jigsaw puzzles.  I plan meals, make shopping lists and do the cooking.

Is there a stuffed animal in your bedroom?

I have a stuffed Alf in  the closet.

What did you appreciate this past week?

I Really appreciated that the weather finally warmed up to freezing last Friday.

What caring thing are you going to do for yourself today?

I am taking a Food Holiday.  What is a food holiday you may ask?  It’s a day or two when you either fast or eat Very light.  My body needs this after all of the yummy foods I splurged on.

List at least five of your favorite spices? (excluding salt and pepper)

I want so much for cocoa to be a spice.  So let me convince you.  It is a bean.  It is a seed.  Good start, right?  It gets ground into a powder….just like other spices.  You add it to food and drink to give the food and/or drink a very good flavor.  Have you ever added cocoa powder to chili?  I have.  And there you go, it’s a spice.  That said here is my list:  cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and cumin.

What can you always be found with?

I can always be found with seltzer, coffee or tea.  Seltzer because it’s my soda replacement.  My coffee is one cup in the morning with half and half.  My tea is plain, nothing added, hot when it’s cool outside and cold when it’s hot outside.

What household chore do you absolutely hate doing?

The dishes… I hate doing the dishes.  I would rather clean the bathroom.

At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?

Due to health stuff I don’t think I’ve felt alive or passionate at all recently.

How many times have you moved in the last ten years?

I am happy to say that in the past 10 years I have moved Zero times. Yay!

Do you ever sit on a park bench for more than ten minutes?

I haven’t sat on a park bench for a very long time.  When I last did, I sat for more than 10 minutes.

When you lose electricity in a storm, do you light the candles, turn on the flashlight or use your cell phone for light?

We use a flashlight and a cell phone to light the candles.

Would you rather be given $10,000 for your own use or $100,000 to give anonymously to strangers?

I would use it for myself… bills to pay.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  

No inspiration but I am thankful I’m alive.

Where do you eat breakfast?

Living room.  Recliner.  In front of TV.

Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want have a evening with?

Oh my, so many options.  Seriously, there is a whole group of people that I would like to gather and ask one question….What the HELL were you thinking?!  I’m not going to name names.

If you could be a tree or plant, what would you be?

In the Spring I would be a weeping willow, in the Summer a banana plant, in the Fall a mighty oak and in Winter a douglas fir.

If you had to move to a country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why? 

I had to think about this for a while.  Germany would be cool, but then so would Ecuador…or Japan!  No, I’ve been there.  Well maybe Chile.  On the other hand I’ve always told my hubby I wanted to live in the Philippines.  No, too humid.  Great place to vacation but not year round.  So I poked around on Google Maps and decided….


Northern Italy.  In the Italian Alps.  Cool, snowy, skiing, close to All of the other European countries and we could take the Chunnel to the UK.


What color would you like your bedroom to be?

A very soothing foresty green.


What makes you Happy? Make a list of things in your life that bring you joy.

Weekend morning drives with hubby, to watch the sunrise and drink coffee.

Plantings seeds and watching the plants grow. 

Watching documentaries about archeology, astronomy and physics.  Nerdy right?


What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

I was inspired by my hubby to do something on my blog last week.

And I was super thankful that my hubby’s surgery went well, small tumor was removed and was benign.

What’s your strongest sense?

I think I’ll go with taste.  I wear glasses, hubby tells me my hearing is going, thanks to the diabetes monster my fingertips are tingly and a quarter of the year my nose is stuffy.  Yup…it’s taste.   (and yes, that is a lunch of cheddar cheese, honeydew melon and dates…on a paper plate because I hate doing dishes.)




Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey)

When I was young I was Bashful.  When my boys were young I was Doc.  Part of the year I’m Sneezy.  Since my hair has turned grey I am a combination of Sleepy, Dopey and Grumpy.   However…..I spend most of my time as Happy.


If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what age would that be?

I would like my 61 year old brain put into my 20 year old body.
