1. What is your favorite color?

My all time favorite color is aqua… aquamarine... sea blue… whatever name you give it. It is the color of my eyes, too!

May 14 half marathon celebration on Monday 005
My celebration the day after I ran my first half marathon in May 2012… first? Only.
Feb 23 Running Divas 001
A Running Divas shirt I won in a giveaway in 2012 and love even now.
2. Favourite Animal?

Such a hard question for me to answer. I love all kinds of animals.  The 2 dogs, both English Springer Spaniels, that have been my loving companions come first to mind…

Penny (2)
Penny, whom I met when I met The Captain when she was almost 2 years old and lived with me and The Captain and loved us to bits until she was 13.


My darling Scouts Honor (Scout) whom I chose from the litter, and who lived with us till she was almost 8 years old.  The apple of my eye and I get teary even looking at this amazing picture of her that The Captain took the day we brought her home at 9 weeks old.

So, yes, I am dog-crazy but I love all kinds of pets and farm animals, and wild animals, too.  Pretty much the only animals I don’t really care for are bats and frogs/toads.  Sorry.
3. Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink:

Hands down it is plain old water! 

4. Facebook or Twitter?

Definitely Twitter. I was late to FB and really tried to avoid it for the longest time.

5. Favorite Pattern?

I can’t say I have one.  Different things appeal to me at different times.  Not  a fan of gaudy though.


These Wahine Sport arm sleeves have a pattern I really like. And you won’t be surprised by the aqua accents in my living room.  And you may also recognize the replica of The Bluenose on the shelf behind me.  She is the sailing yacht depicted on our Canadian dime, and who makes her home in Nova Scotia, too. 


And I do tend  to like the clever things artists do with the Canadian and the American flags.
6. What is your passion?

My life with my wonderful husband of almost 23 years… our wedding anniversary will be on February 5th.  The Captain supports and loves me unconditionally and I could not be happier or more in love!

I  always hesitate to nominate other bloggers for these things because I am so afraid I might hurt someone’s feelings if I leave them out.. and I have to say that the list of bloggers I would choose is way longer than what is suggested here! 

If you are reading this post, please consider yourself nominated, as I would surely select you!
