On a vacation what you would require in any place that you sleep? 

I am sure like most people would, cleanliness.  I was going to say a clean bathroom, which is a given, but then I got to thinking, that really, the whole room better be clean! Be honest, if it wasn’t, why would you want to give anyone your good money to stay there?  Also, just ew!

Music or silence while working?

Music. Always. It is actually less distracting than silence is for me. I find it more inspiring, too. I think my mind tends to wander in the silence. I can’t even fall asleep at night if it is silent.

If you were to move and your home came fully furnished with everything you ever wanted, list at least three things from your old house you wish to retain?

Let me think on this one! Things. Such a general category. Okay, number one is all the original artwork on my walls! Many pieces from so many talented people in my family! The following piece is one done in 1906 by my great aunt.

Two would have to be the piano that is sitting in the living room. It was one my sister bought and we bought from her.  It’s an old upright and the one my daughter used during piano lessons-it is hers to take with her at some point! Three. I have been sitting here wracking my brain….  I think I will make it general too! Three will be all my personal mementos, angels, books and anything and everything else that means something to me!

What’s your least favorite mode of transportation? 

Considering ALL of the troubles I tend to have while using it….FLYING!  I was going to actually write a blog this morning about the latest along with all the others but decided to hold off and do this one today instead! There is always just SO much that can and seems to go wrong.  Not to mention how they have made it SO uncomfortable to fly now. Trick to getting leg room?  Grab an exit seat!

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

I am grateful for safe travels and time with family and friends! I always feel so blessed when I get to spend time with any of them. As to the week coming up??? Temperatures maybe warming back up? Hey, it is too early for cold and snow and if it can warm back up even a little, I will be grateful for that!
