It’s a new year, one I’m viewing with trepidation but yet hopeful. It will be an inside day for me – not unusual this time of year, but more definitely so today because it’s snowing and there are winter storm warnings out through tomorrow morning. That might make getting Gep and Kat to the airport tomorrow more challenging. In the meantime, Cee has issued her first challenge of the year.
Would you prefer to receive a unicycle, bicycle, tricycle or motorcycle? Definitely not a unicycle, as I’m certain the end result of that would be something broken, most likely one of my body parts. A bicycle would be good exercise, if I got out and rode it. I think I’d go for the bicycle.
What is one thing you’d like to accomplish this year? I’d like to keep hope this year. I’d like to believe things will all work out well. I’d like the world to get back to being “indivisible” – which it does not seem to be at all right now. Oh – but you’re talking about what I’d like to accomplish – sorry, I’ll get back on track. I’d like to continue with my alcohol ink adventures, honing my talents, my skills, actually making some sales once I get some sort of site or page set up to offer items for sale.
What was one of the highlights of 2016 for you? There were a couple. The visits from Gep and Kat, of course – that’s a highlight anytime. Our Girl’s Week in Depoe Bay was another highlight. Discovering the alcohol inks. Enjoying sunshine and quiet times, with friends and alone. I never can just stick to one thing, can I?
Would you prefer to fly a kite or fly in a hot air balloon? Hot air balloon. I like to watch people fly kites, but I have no desire to do that myself. I have wanted to go up in a hot air balloon for years, and although I don’t like edges, a balloon would be okay because you’re in a basket with sides. Barring actually going up in one, it would be fun to attend a festival of hot air balloons.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I am grateful for time with my kids. I am grateful for having a home where I am warm, dry, and comfortable. I am grateful for my furry girls. My kids are heading back to their lives tomorrow, so I really can’t say I’m looking forward to the next week, other than I do want to wake up each day of the week.
Today, I’ll share an ink painting that my Facebook friends have already seen, but perhaps there are some who will read this post who have not seen it.
