This Week’s Question

Who is your favorite Disney character?

Can I just point out how fabulous this photo is???

Back to the question-

I like Sleeping Beauty because she seems sensible, likes the outdoors, and dances with Prince Philip–and Wall-E because, well, Wall-E.

Enjoy your day. Sonja

This Week’s Question

If you had to switch professions tomorrow and could do anything you wanted, what would you choose?

I would probably choose archaeology. Not of Egyptian culture, as is so prevalent, but of medieval European culture–mainly England and Scotland. Maybe a bit of Ireland, too.

I used to watch a British show that followed archaeologists around Britain. It was fascinating! I love how they could pick up a shard from a plate or a jug and know the provenance.

After watching this for a while (and feeling jealous!) I decided I didn’t need to be an actual archaeologist to learn the history. And that’s what I wanted: to know history.

Not just dates, but how people lived from day-to-day. That’s where the magic is for me.

That may be why I write stories set in the Middle Ages in my alternate life. I like people to get along so I write romances, stories that tell of the daily events that lead up to love. It’s more fun that they are wearing gowns and tunics!

Let me know what you think! Sonja

This Week’s Question

How many hours of sleep did you get last night?

In our society, a lack of sleep seems to have become a status symbol. I don’t understand it, but have fallen into that trap.

“I slept only three hours last night” with the implied, “Look how fabulous I am/how hard I can work while sleep-deprived.”

I sleep an average of seven-and-a-half hours a night. Less than that and I’m tired all day (not a caffeine-drinker)-more than that and I walk around like I’m on cold medicine. You know that ‘my head is tethered to my neck only by a thin string’ feeling? That’s me if I sleep for too long.

Tell me how you slept last night. No judgments. I promise.

Sleep well. Sonja

#Nature #Outside #Horses

It’s Sunday Funday and I plan to spend it outside.

I would love to enjoy this beautiful weather from the back of a horse. Too bad I don’t have one to ride! But I can use my imagination–

I love the smell of horses, the creak of the leather saddle, the sound of the hooves clopping on a dirt trail. And so much more.

Tell me what you like to do on your #Sunday Funday. Sonja

My Favorite Book

If you’re are a regular follower of this site, you likely know about my love of anything Jane Austen!

My favorite book to read is ‘Pride & Prejudice’. My favorite adaptation is the BBC mini-series of ‘P&P’, and the 1995 version of ‘Persuasion’.

I would love to hear about your favorites.

I’m always on the lookout for a new experience! Sonja
