So here we go!

I’d like to thank Dolly  for nominating me.  That came as a total surprise, especially considering that I am just a beginner as far as blogging is concerned.

Here are her 11 questions and my answers:

  1. If you were an animal, who would you be and why?

I would be a bird, cos you could travel anywhere, no visa or hotel needed!

  1. What is your first thought when you wake up in the morning?

Coffee!  Apparently, if you regularly drink no more than two cups a day, coffee is good for you, doctors say.

  1. What do you do to calm down when stressed out?

DIY – works wonders!

  1. Do you prefer indoors or outdoors time?

Outdoors.  I live in England, and English countryside is adorable!

  1. How do you vacation?

Going places.

  1. How often do you smile and why?

My youngest grandson makes me smile nonstop!

  1. What kind of art makes you breathless?

Rachmaninov’s piano concertos.

  1. What do you think of social media?

I try to avoid it, if possible, because I do not trust neither them, nor politicians any longer.

  1. Wine, beer, or strong liquor?

Beer in Germany or the Czech Republic, wine elsewhere.

  1. How much green is in your food?

Trying to be good, love veg.

  1. Rain or shine?

I love both if it’s not too much of the stuff.

Now, here are the bloggers I’d like to nominate for the Sunshine Blogger Award:
