I've Been Tagged! :)

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

I really hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I know it is the middle of the week but I feel I am only getting started :)

Anyway, to get us started today I thought I would share this photo with you :)

I like to call this "Skunk in a Snow Storm" (He! He!) Yep, they still seem to be wondering around the neighbourhood!  Oh, the smell of Skunk as we drive on one road not far from our house is, well, let's say NOT aromatic!!!

Well Last Week my Blogger Buddy Annette (Thanks Girlfriend :) at So Many Memories Blog tagged me to answer eight questions. It seemed like a good idea, so I hope you guys enjoy reading a little about me :)


Here are Annette's questions!

1. If you could have one super power, what would it be and how would you use it?

To make people that piss me off disappear (is that a super power of just wishful thinking :)

2. If you could become any character in a book or movie, who would you become and why?

Gotta be Scarlett O’Hara! What a spoilt life and she was truly loved and even thru the hard times still has a tenacity and perseverance that was phenomenal.

3. What was your favorite AND least favorite subject in school?

Fav would be art, least fav. Religious instruction.

4. What would be your dream job?

Airline pilot (can I fly, no, it is on my "TO DO" list, but this is a DREAM right  :)

5. What is one new thing you would like to learn?


6. If your life became a reality show, would it be a comedy or a drama?

Absolutely both! :)

7. Milk chocolate or dark chocolate?

Milk definitely, my Hubby loves dark chocolate and I don’t get it at all, yuck!

8. What is your favorite way to relax or de-stress?

A glass of wine, an amazing meal, a lovely sunset and putting my feet up :)

After answering the questions, I am to tag eight people to answer eight questions that I make up but I thought it might be a giggle to have everyone who wants to participate to answer as many or as few questions as they like :)

Leave your answers in a comment. I look forward to reading a little about you all :)

My Questions;

1). When you get frustrated with the planet and things just keep going wrong, what do you do?

2). What is your best accomplishment?

3). If you could be a toy what would it be and why?

4). What is your fav. Childhood candy?

5). If you knew you only had one month to live what would be the 3 things you would want to do?

6). If you could live anywhere, where would that be and why?

7). What makes you Happy?

8). What was your Fav. Halloween?

I hope you like these questions, some a little serious, maybe, and others just for fun. :) Don't feel like youhave to answer all :)

Also, I wanted to share this lovely Treasury so many gorgeous orange, they need another treasury By NikkoBlue Jewelry she included my little Baby Soft Orange Hande knitted Scarf, that was so sweet of her, if you get a min. could you C. & C. thanks :)

And lastly, I'd like to leave you with a few more shots of another Sunset from last week, we certainly did have some lovely ones. I love the way the clouds swirl around ( it was a little windy :)

Hope you Enjoyed these :)

Happy Painting/Creating! :) T.

Those sunset photos are truly awesome! I enjoyed your answers to my questions...especially being able to make people disappear!! Thanks for participating. :)

My greatest accomplishment is my children! At 25 and 26, they are mature responsible adults and I would live closer to them if I could live anywhere!

wow you really have been busy. Those sunsets rock my world. We have a skunk who is using our yard as a cut through on his or her nocturnal ramblings and the stench is so bad that it wakes you up as he/she comes through. This is w/out spraying mind you, just the lingering scent

hahahhah i'd like to have that superpower too (but then again, i'd probably be out of a job (oh no she di-in't!).)

it's always great to learn more about you. ;)

here's two answers, because i love these questions:

#3 - Muffy VanderBear. Twas a charmed life she led.
#4 - i'm a wee bit of a candy-holic, but *childhood* favorite was probably starburst. i'd eat those until i had a chemical burn on my tongue. (also, i once ate Velamints literally until i was ill.)

happy wednesday, T!

Gorgeous sunset photos! The swirling clouds remind me of an artists brush strokes...Nature the master artist at work !

I can answer the first two questions without thinking about them. When I get frustrated with this world and everything goes wrong...I head to my small little church, Our Lady of the Angels, and I pray. It may not change the world or make everything right, but it makes me feel better.

2, My greatest accomplishments are my children. If nothing else in my life has been a stellar success, at least I can revel in the beauty and the wonder of my children.

Thanks guys, I love taking photos of Sunsets :)

Yep, I would definitely say my greatest accomplishment was my kids too :) T.

Alice Istanbul said...

Great blog post, from the cute pic of the skunk to the questions :)

Charlotte said...

LOVE the sunset pictures!! So whimsical.

These questions are great as well! If I were a toy, I would be Buzz Toy Story...To Infinity and beyond!! ;)

When I get frustrated, I try to take a walk and find an amazing view and take it in, it helps to put things in perspective.

What makes me happy is having my health, a loving family and job security! A glass of wine is always helps too!

Pink Dandy Chatter said...

I actually like the smell of skunk...haha. I know...everyone tells me that I am crazy.

1). When you get frustrated with the planet and things just keep going wrong, what do you do? I get drunk!

2). What is your best accomplishment? My beautiful baby girls that have become young, smart girls.

3). If you could be a toy what would it be and why? Barbie...she has everything!

4). What is your fav. Childhood candy? Runts (especially the banana pieces)

5). If you knew you only had one month to live what would be the 3 things you would want to do? travel, eat everything and love my family

6). If you could live anywhere, where would that be and why? I'm not especially fond of change, so, I would stay right where I am at. If it ain't broke...don't fix it...right?

7). What makes you Happy? my family and my creative spirit

8). What was your Fav. Halloween? The Halloween that I was a first time mother. Dressing my little baby girl in a rabbit costume. Or, when my twins were babies and I dressed one as a bumble bee and the other as a lady bug.

Gorgeous pics at the end! Oh and so great getting to know you!

Stunning sunset photos, btw. And the skunk one made me giggle. ^.^
