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
