The challenge is to answer these questions that Cee posts over at Cee’s Photography and link up to Share Your World weekly. I am doing it kind of hit or miss but it is a fun little exercise and allows me to have a blog post that you guys can join in on if you want! Join Cee or if that isn’t your thing feel free to answer one or more in the comment section. Remember our Comments for a Cause recipient this month is Hawkeye Harvest Food Bank.
You’re given $500,000 dollars tax free (any currency), what do you spend it on? I would most likely pay off some lingering bills, stick a gob in our investment account, give a little bit to our sons, give at least 10% of it to some of my favorite charities and maybe, just maybe, set aside enough to take Mr. Diamond and I on that dream vacation to………….
What’s the finest education? I know it sounds a bit silly but I think life is the best education. While I am a college graduate and wouldn’t change having that degree for anything I also think that a lot of life’s best lessons are learned by living it and by sharing with others. I think the greatest source of knowledge can often be found in our older generations and it is important to spend time talking with them and tapping their experience and knowledge.
What kind of art is your favorite? Why? Wow. That is a very difficult question to answer. I see art everywhere. But the one art that I could absolutely not live without is the art of music. It surrounds me and transports me and offers me an escape many times when I need an escape. I can not imagine a world without music.
Is there something that you memorized long ago and still remember? YES!!
Stopping by Woods on Snowy Evening by Robert Frost
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I am very grateful that my Mr. Diamond was home last weekend and spent the weekend with me in Franklin County on the Bloggers Tour! We had a blast and it was fabulous to be with him.
I am looking forward to some great time with friends this week, getting a lot of writing done and cards made for Hospice!!!
