I will first answer your questions.
Monica from The Yum List asked:
1. Why did you start blogging?
I wanted to have a place where I could express myself and share what I like with others. I also wanted my blog to be family friendly, for all ages, and for it to be a positive and fun place to visit.
2. How has your blog or yourself as a blogger changed over time?
When I first began my blog in 2012, I was sharing my personal photos and sharing a bit about myself as well. A couple of years ago I lost my camera and rather than stop my blog (because at this point I found it...and still do, to be quite therapeutic), I decided to share videos and quotations. I wanted people to have a positive and fun place to come to, away from the chaos and stress of day to day life.
3. If you could at one dish for dinner, what would it be? I would really enjoy either a leg of lamb or grilled lamb chops with asparagus, garlic mashed potatoes and mint jelly. :)
Fundy Blue from Standing Into Danger asked,
1. What is your first memory?
When I was 4 years old back in 1961, I had my right kidney removed because it was not functioning properly and the doctors told my parents that if the kidney was NOT removed, I would surely die...but I would have a 50% chance to live if they removed it. My parents chose to have the kidney removed. I remember how scared I was at that age of having to go into surgery! Thankfully I have been living with on kidney ever since, having needed no dialysis. I am very grateful for this.
2. What gives you the strength to be positive and inspiring to others, even if times get tough?
Remembering that others also go through difficult times, and my faith in God has helped me a great deal. I am also very grateful to have good friends, and just knowing that my posts help others in some small way helps to keep me going.
3. If you could go back in time, what time would you visit?
This is going to sound strange to many of you, most likely, because it would be the 1940's. Yes, WWII was happening then, but I love the clothing styles and music of this period! Television and photos were in black and white, and even though there was rationing going on during the war, nobody starved. As well, people gladly offered their hand to help others and shared whatever they could.
Chris Lally from Chris Lally Art asked,
If you could enter a time machine, where would you go (past or future).
I would definitely go to the past. Not to stay there, but to visit for a while...however, I would want to visit 'before my time', such as the 1930's or 1940's.
