Every week, Cee poses us five questions. In answering Cee’s questions, we share a little of our world with fellow bloggers and readers. Thank you, Cee. Here are Cee’s questions for Week 45.

What is your favorite color? 

Kookaburra and blue sky, October 2014

Kookaburra and blue sky, October 2014

Blue has always been my favourite colour. Very predictable I suppose, as it seems about half the world has blue as a favourite! The blue I love best is the deep blue of the Australian sky that we especially see in autumn. Stunning!

In what do you find the simplest of joys?

Both my husband and I find all our joys in the everyday things around us – we couldn’t afford anything more anyway, so it is good that it keeps our focus on the small things.

We love our many kids (8 between us) and grandkids (11 and another on the way), but they all live at a distance from us. So, getting a photo of them at their daily lives and activities, or a drawing from one of the grandchildren, warms our hearts. So does speaking with any of them by phone or Skype. In the meantime, we truly relish what nature shares with us.

Would you prefer a reading nook or an art, craft, photography studio?

My study is crammed with books and scrapbooking materials and albums, as well as my computer desk where I do a lot of my writing. It is rather crowded, but I can get by with the space I have for those.

I have a nice comfy chair in the lounge room where I can read. However that is where the TV is. I rarely watch TV, so when I go there to read, hubby is really good to me and wears earphones to listen to it. It would be lovely if I could have a bigger study so I could have my comfy reading chair in there too.

What is at least one of your favorite quotes?

Be the change you wish to seeYou think you have time

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Last week we visited an old friend in hospital after a bowel cancer operation. We are always amazed at 92-year-old Jean and her positive attitude to life. We are grateful to have her as a friend.

We are going to visit some of my husband’s kids and grandkids tomorrow, and will also see some of my siblings. I am particularly looking forward to seeing my younger sister, as we haven’t been able to spend any time together for over a year. It will be great to catch up.

  1. I share you need Linda of wanting a bigger study. Ours is also crammed with stuff and books. Never knew your family was so large. Must be an absolute gift, although I suppose it can also get difficult. So enjoyed your post. Kind of homely and good. 🙂

    • Thank you Don. 🙂
      We are a blended family – although all the kids were grown and off in the world before Dirk and I got together. I have 5 sons, he has 2 sons & a daughter.

      • Wow! That’s marvellous. Quite a family you’ve got there Linda. 🙂

      • A wonderful one, Don. 🙂

  2. I really like your quotes this week. Thanks so much for sharing this week 🙂 🙂

  3. Lovely to visit your family 🙂
    It sounds to me that life is pretty good where you are, and that you are especially lucky to have such a thoughtful husband.
