What is your favorite smell? What memory does it remind you of?
Hard to pinpoint a favorite but I do love the smell of pine trees and I love the smell of baking bread. Neither conjures up a memory they are both just “good smells” to me.
What type of pet do you have or want to have?
We had 2 Cocker Spaniels from 1996 until 2012- both lived to a very old age-and emotionally I am not ready to open my heart again to another dog. Maybe someday – but for right now I am enjoying the freedom that comes with not being tied down to the house and a set time to get home.
Are you usually late, early, or right on time?
I am usually early but I am learning to get to where I need to be on time rather than waiting around because I am early. I grew up with the mentality that you had to be at an appointment 15 minutes early, but as I have grown older I no longer do that. I am usually kept waiting and getting there early just makes the wait longer. I loathe being late- it is just not in my DNA.
For recharging, would you rather meditate, swim, walk, listen to music, write, read, yoga, qigong other?
My first choice is always to go for a walk in nature- to my favorite local park and look at the beauty around me and the birds.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Grateful everyday and thankful for the friends I have that offered support and feedback when things got challenging in school last week.
