This week's questions:
What's your favorite day of the week? Why?
I don't think that I have a favorite day of the week anymore. They are all pretty much the same. When my husband had a regular work week job, my favorite days were Saturday and Sunday because he was home with us. Now, we are self-employed and keep the schedule jam-packed. We're doing good to remember what day of the week it is these days. :)
What's your favorite Christmas movie?
I have two favorites that I've watched since childhood: It's a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street. It just wouldn't be the same without those two movies.
Is there a Christmas Carol that's special to you?
Yes! I love, love, love Enya's version of "Silent Night", called "Oiche Chiun." It is absolutely beautiful and the most peaceful one that I've ever heard.
I found it on YouTube so that you can hear it now.
Is there an art or craft that you'd love to be able to do?
There are a ton of them! I have many interests and am not particularly talented at any of them. David says that I'm my own worst critic. No, there are worse. Anyway, I would love to be able to paint exactly what I see, using real paint and real canvas. I would also love to be able to master my digital painting program. Corel Painter 12is the newest version. I have a lot of ideas for paintings but can't get them from my head to a canvas (digital or otherwise). What is in my head never translates properly through my fingers. But I sure would love for it to!
Do you have a live Christmas tree or an artificial one?
We have an artificial one. After a major change in our family a few years ago, we threw out the old and brought in something new, kind of like shaking the dust off of our sandals as mentioned in the Bible. The one that we have now is white instead of green and is up year-round.
