Question # 1: What do you want to learn more about?
Painting. I took up painting a couple years ago because I felt it would help me relax. I studied through videos offered by some artists who made learning fun. However, I have so little time to devote to the craft that I lose touch with what I’ve learned. So I guess what I really want is to learn more from the “hands-on” perspective, and I’m going to make a real effort towards that goal between now and the end of the year.
Question # 2: On vacation, what would you require in any place that you sleep?
An absolutely clean bathroom and absolutely clean bedding — from the mattress to the top bedspread. Finding both of those things is almost impossible — even when you spend loads of money — which is one reason I don’t travel as much as I used to.
Question # 3: What is your greatest extravagance?
I’m ashamed to say it, but it’s paper products. I tend to use things like paper tower, toilet paper, and kleenex rather freely. I do try to always buy the paper towel that lets you use half sheets if you don’t need whole sheets. That helps. But to counter that savings, I’ve begun eating off paper plates and out of paper bowls a lot lately as well. I don’t have a dishwasher, and just knowing that disposable dishes will keep my dishwashing down to just a couple times a week is a plus for me. I have several jobs (associate pastor, writer, editor, teacher — both college classes and private classes). So housework of any kind gets put way down on my list. Anything that saves me time and energy in that capacity may lead to my being rather extravagant.
Question # 4: What inspired you this past week?
This picture from wallpapercraft.com. It inspired me to dream and give my imagination free reign for the first time in several weeks.
