Five Questions

I was supposed to do this for July 18th but I didn’t have my Blog ready yet so here goes:

I took the most amazing class this summer over a period of four weeks and 16 classes. It was all about creating an amazing Blog … so that’s what started this journey.  It was way too short because we had the most fun with two amazing ladies who make everything they teach sound so easy. A lot of thought was put into this class, a pleasure to be part of and it was professional, genuine and caring because of Kim and Xanthe.

Here are my Five Questions answered. I was going to do a mock up in Photoshop but I’ve been too busy working on the blog to get to that.

Question 1:

What makes you happy ? … in 5 words or less? ~

Grandbabies, Beach, Cat, Photographing Everything!

Question 2:

Which talent would you most like to have? ~

To paint in watercolours. (thank goodness I can pretend in Photoshop) and I would love to Play the Piano.

Question 3:

Which word or phrases do you overuse the most? ~ Well up to about 8 weeks ago, I said “Someday” a lot!! I have decided to quit using that and replace it with “When“,  another is, “I know“, and one I hate using everytime I say it is “Frikin” … why I got onto that one I have no idea and I say Cool a lot … hmm, and ‘Just Listen’

Question 4:

What is your favourite movie or book or both?~

Wow, I love movies and books but don’t get a lot of time to read. I like a good movie first. I will say ‘OVERBOARD’ with Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell, I could watch it two hundred times and never get tired of it. Always a smile comes from that. I have many favourites for Christmastime, and love some great recent movies/book like,  The Help … but Overboard just plain makes me feel great.

Question 5:

If you could go anywhere in the world for a creative retreat, where might it be? ~

I just thought of something … revisiting my answer here …. below is my big dream however, while I was thinking about it longer and harder, I realized I had a wish in regards to this question months ago. I would love to be able to go to CAMP SHUTTER SISTERS … I longed to go last year. The fact that it was at the BEACH was the biggest draw. I couldn’t afford it though but thankfully, I was able to live some of it virtually through Kim and now Xanthe … which made it feel much more real. Such positiveness came from that sharing. Thanks ladies!!

It really is a toss up between two equally appealing to me, the UK or Australia but if those were not possible then my soul replenishing stand by would be the Oregon Coast. I have always come away from there filled with new ideas, a sense of calm,  and awesome photographs. It’s time to go again as it’s been ten years. Miss it.

So, that’s it from me. Thanks Kim and Xanthe.  I may put together something in Photoshop for this yet.

Until the next thought …   Love

  1. Hey there wonderful woman friend!
    I know you know I am not much of a blogger, but promise to visit you as often as I can, because I believe you are a natural at this! You are so giving and sharing and the true example of what goes around comes around! Best wishes with your new venture!
    Luv always, Nettie xox

  2. My dear Nettie,

    You are truly a kind and generous soul and I am grateful for our friendship on so many levels. Although we have only been ‘online’ friends for 6 years now … (can you believe it?), I feel it was meant to be. If we should ever be fortunate to meet in person, our friendship can only become stronger. Kindred spirits we are.
    You are amazing and have brought me your genuineness and comfort through what started out as a ‘virtual’ friendship.
    Thank you for visiting me here … it means a lot and I really do value your input.

    Now, you go have an AMAZING day, breathe, and be happy you are the beautiful person I call my friend.

    Always love,
    Joy xo
