Liebster Award x Two

 Anna and Kate both nominated me for the Liebster award, so here are my answers! According to the official terms of agreement I was to have stated 22 facts about myself, but that being slightly impossible, (do I know 22 facts about myself?) I skipped out of stating any. Both asked many very inspiring questions and I had great enjoyment answering their questions and coming up with some of my own! Thanks again for nominating me girls!!!

Questions from Anna

Swimming or tanning?
 I don't really tan myself on purpose, but I greatly enjoy swimming in lakes when I have the opportunity.
Popsicles or ice cream cones?
 I don't eat either any more, but I never really liked the cone part of ice cream cones and so it would be popsicles. Unless it is an ice cream cone made of moose tracks ice cream.
Watermelons or Cantaloupes?
Cantaloupes, but home grown Moon and Stars watermelon can be divine. :)
Biking or Running?
I don't really do either for exercise, but I love doing both for pure pleasure and excitement.
Where would you like to live one day?
The world is very wide, you know, but Heaven is my goal.
How do you picture yourself in ten years?
This a favorite subject of mine about which to wind dreams, a favorite and perhaps the wildest? Traveling around the country married to a race horse jockey.
Little Mermaid or the Lion King on Broadway?
Little Mermaid. I don't particularly like the story, but I have always wondered how they manage the underwater parts which have a mermaid onstage
Cake or Cookies?
Cookies.
What is your favorite Disney movie?
Four of my favorites are: “The Apple Dumpling Gang”, Third Man on the Mountain”, “Swiss Family Robinson”, and “Robin Hood” with Richard Todd.

 Questions from Kate
What is your favorite dessert?
    Cheesecake. Particularly lemon cheesecake.
What is the longest word you know?
   Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!
Do you prefer skirts or pants?
    I am not straitlaced about not wearing pants, but I have just worn dresses/skirts all my life. And is there anything more bookish and “romantic” than a long swishy skirt?
 Is there a heroine in a classic book-story who you are supposed to like but don't?
     Valency in “The Blue Castle” I alternately like and do not like her and most of the time it is the latter.
 Do you like classical music? If so, who is your favorite composer?
    I love it!!! My two favorite composers off the top of my head are Mendelssohn; his “A Midsummer Night's Dream” is glorious! Also, Tchaikovsky.
 What is your opinion on Tom LeFroy And what about the mysterious seaside gentleman?
    “Mysterious seaside gentleman” has a very exciting sound to it. However do to my lack of knowledge upon the subjects I can only echo Mrs. Shin in saying: “I cannot say... That is, I cannot say at this time...”
Favorite Season?
 Autumn and winter.. the energy, the spice, the snappy winds.. However Spring and Summer have their sweet points as well.
 Favorite Flower?
     My favorite flower greatly depends upon my mood... I think that the old-fashioned ones, roses, violets, honeysuckle etc.  are the most lovely and beautiful. Nevertheless I love the tropical looking ones, because they are so adventurous and exotic.
Favorite European country besides England?
      Italy. Ever since seeing “Little Dorrit” I have wished to visit Venice and now, listening to my father as he reads 'The Lion of St. Mark” aloud, the wish is confirmed.
 Do you have any hobbies?
      My entire life is a collection of interests that I greatly enjoy. :) But some favorites? Reading, writing, blogging, learning with and about my horse, studying history, drawing
(and science fits into this category as I love to draw the diagrams in my science dictionary).
 Do you prefer the mountains, the sea, the desert or the prairie?
 Of the above I have spent the most time in the mountains – and oh I love them! Nevertheless I also like the sea and one of my dreams is to some day  take a road trip up the east coast with my next younger sister when we are both a little more grown-up. I would especially like to visit Cape Cod in the summer when the roses are in bloom and I would also like to go to one of the races that is part of the Triple Crown. A rather rambling idea, but oh so nice.

    1. I am so glad you enjoyed the answers! As for interests, (not that we are to live simply for pleasure of course), but I try to make my theme song, "A Spoonful of Sugar" form Mary Poppins. Oops...I actually don't eat sugar, but you know what I mean. :) Have a lovely afternoon!

    1. Loved reading your answers!
      The choice between Austen and Montgomery is hard for me too, as it really depends upon the mood I am in!
      Oh, and sorry about the confusion... PBR stands for "Professional Bull Riders".
      Thanks for both the "follows" and I hope you have a lovely week. :)
