Angela, of Rural North at http://northernhills.blogspot.ca/ nominated me for an award. While I do not participate in awards, I thought I'd answer the questions Angela posed and invite readers to pick one of the questions to answer on a blog or in reply.
What is your favorite color? I am partial to cool colours, shades of blue, especially the darker shades.
Where would you like to go for a vacation? I dream of a vacation in Iceland now, though I live in a land which sees lots of ice. The geology and culture of Iceland has always fascinated me however. Then again, I'd like to visit southeast Asia and China. Truth is, I like to go anywhere!
Crochet or knitting? I am not good at crafts, lacking the patience for long projects and manual dexterity. Besides, while I have the desire, I cannot sustain either of these crafts due to issues with my back.
Favorite food? Roast turkey or chicken would top my list of favourite foods, simple food, cooked beautifully. I enjoy any meal with friends or family. I am not a fussy eater.
Favorite author? Right now I am reading Canadian authors, especially any which are nominated for awards. I enjoy reading about the Canadian experience which is so varied due to our multi-cultural nature. Indigenous writers are of particular interest, in an effort to understand their issues and culture. In my opinion, we have treated the Indigenous people of this land terribly.
Favorite movie? One of my favourites is Christmas Vacation because it is funny and a family must-see over the holidays. Watching it together has always been fun. However, I am a movie lover thanks to my dad and enjoy many genres.
Favorite city? New York is on the list of favourites, but all cities intrigue me. Madrid, London, Amsterdam, Dublin, Marrakesh are all beautiful, each in its own way. I have never been as wild about Paris as others are, though I see its beauty. Any city has its wonders and I always look forward to the next city adventure.
Which season do you like best? When I was teaching, I would have responded summer. Since I retired, it is spring and autumn too. I have never been a lover of winter though we live in a northern county.
Coffee or tea? Both have their merits and place in my life.
Prefer the ocean or mountains? I love both oceans and mountains though I was born and grew up by the sea. The tides have been a part of my being from the beginning.
Would you answer one of these questions in the comments, or focus on one or all of them for a future blog post?
Thank you for nominating me, Angela.
