I have saved the email notification from Embeecee for several days, but then forgotten it was in the list until I read another blog’s answers this morning. Now that I’m coming out of the fog, I’m going to play along.
What’s the first thing you notice about a person? It depends on the angle from which I’m seeing the person. If I’m seeing them full face, it would be the eyes and the mouth – smiling or not? Weary? Calm? If it’s a side or back view, it would be their clothes, their overall appearance.
What three habits do you feel would improve someone’s life? Eating healthy foods, which I try to do – exercising, which I know I should do – maintaining a positive attitude – which is sometimes hard to do. Especially when the world continually decides it need to be white and cold. Ahh, but that’s a personal problem, isn’t it?
What takes up too much of your time? Would you stop that if you could? My time, personally? Procrastinating. Putting off what really are simple chores. I need to exercise more self-discipline and just get things done instead of thinking about doing them. It’s not like I’m overworked. I could and should stop and I’m working on will stop.
Cookies (biscuits to those elsewhere), pastries, pie or cake? If not, what does your sweet tooth crave? Until recently – and actually, probably including now – any of the above, depending upon my mood. Although most recently I have found a healthy muffin recipe I really like and has the added benefit of being good for me, so that’s been my go-to when the sweet tooth strikes. I’m trying to avoid too much sugar and preservatives.
Gratitude? Are You Happy? If so, why? If not, why not? Mostly happy, yes. Completely content? Probably not, but if we were completely content, would we ever change anything or strive for more (and more need not be material possessions)? Why am I happy? Why not? I have a home, I have a furry girl to keep me company, I have food, warmth, transport, friends, people I love – why not be happy? I have, most importantly, adult children whose company I enjoy.
Have I shown you my latest painting? I have nothing going now, waiting for the muse to join me, but I’d like to share my most recent effort.
