So many times, a song or a thing fleets across my memory and I think, "Oh, a green Saturn, that's what Grammy used to drive." It's not meant to be the only association you have, it's just a little thing that builds a bridge and it makes sense to start here, with my favorites:
My favorite flower . . . . is the Alaskan Shasta Daisy, but I also LOVE lilac bushes in spring along with snowball bushes. I'm a big fan of flowering shrubs in general. I adore working in the garden and have a love for any one of a million common perennial garden flowers. Iris remind me of my dad. Lilies make my heart sing. I love, love, love sedum. Violas make me happy and remind me of Grandma Mills. It's probably easier to name flowers I don't like. I don't like yarrow, am not a fan of sunflowers and associate carnations with funerals.
My favorite perfume . . . Well, I don't have one. My favorite scent on skin is fresh cleanliness that can only come with good hygiene. I love the mix of smells from a good shampoo, nice conditioner, a soft body wash and a good teeth scrubbing with good old fashioned toothpaste. I sometimes spritz on a bit of body mist. I'm a fan of vanilla because I like to smell like fresh baked cookies.
Color . . . blue. And green. And rust. And yellow. And red. Oh, so hard to pick a favorite.
Song . . . Oh, I do NOT know. I love lots of music. I love lots of different artists across many different decades of music. That, truly is impossible to choose. I have a blessed memory for song lyrics and once I learn the words to a song, they are with me forever. It probably takes up a ton of brain storage, but it's who I am. I'm like that with phone numbers, too.
Book . . . I'm an avid reader, but don't have a favorite. The best book I've read lately is The Chaperone. I like adventure, romance, fantasy . . . again, it's impossible to choose just one.
Saying or Quotation . . . "It's the little things."
Dessert . . . Fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. I'm a cookie connoisseur. I also really love a good snicker-doodle.
Vacation spot . . . Breckenridge, Colorado. Or Montana. Or California.
Type of food . . . Salad. I love a good salad.
Sport . . . Gymnastics.
Movie . . . City of Angels is where I always land even though I probably have several others.
Leisure Activity . . . Gardening. Or biking. Or painting. Or doing house remodeling or re-design. Or organizing stuff. I'm always organizing something.
