This week's 'Ask Me Anything' answers are to questions provided by Linda over at Linda's Peaceful Place. At first, I thought the questions were pretty straightforward but they were surprisingly challenging for me!
1) What is your favorite animal? Birds. Growing up, it was horses but in my teens I started shifting toward birds. Choosing one particular species to be my favorite is an ongoing challenge! I'm not sure if my favorite bird should be local so I have a better chance of seeing them or something exotic and unique? It's a puzzler.
As for local birds, I love Stellar's jays and they are a special treat to see whenever I spot one though they make a terrible noise. I enjoy owls but have never seen one in the wild, like waterfowl and cormorants and I even appreciate crows; they seem to have more character than the other little birds that flit around town. All in all, watching birds cheers me up and makes me happy and that's something I need in life!
2) What fragrance or scent do you find the most soothing? I'm a big fan of lavender as well as peppermint and to a lesser extent rose but I'm also quite comforted and soothed by the smell of coffee and fresh ground coffee beans. Even in some of my worst moods the act of making or getting coffee can be a very soothing practice for me.
3) Do you prefer eating at home or dining out? This is a tough question! I enjoy eating out but it's always been a sort of special thing, I usually eat more at home so that is my "normal" and comfortable option. Right now I'm in an odd phase where I've somewhat forgotten what my favorite restaurants around town were or some of the recipes that I used to make from memory at home, it makes meal planning a little more tricky! I miss going out for Indian or pho... hopefully we can do that again soon :o) Overall, I think I enjoy eating at home more but sometimes I really enjoy getting out for a meal I have a hankering for!
Thank you again to everyone that submitted questions! If anyone has anymore to ask please leave them in the comments below or message them to me and I'll try and answer them, otherwise I think this is it for this session of "Ask Me Anything!" Thanks for participating!
