The Answer is:

Yesterday I posted a blog award. I was supposed to tell you seven things about myself but my brain quick working after five things, and they weren't too original at that. So I asked you all to ask me some questions about me that  you would like to know.

Joanne at Whole Latte Life asked... If you didn't have writing as a passion, what would your next passion be?
Good question Joanne. My answer is three fold. Art...I majored in art and have recently started working on my skills. As you can imagine. If you don't practice you grow rusty, but you never forget, just like riding a bike. I will share some of my art soon.

The next half of this answer is flowers. I wanted to be a florist for awhile and dabbled in silk flowers. I had a garden that my neighbors enjoyed despite the fact that I had heat stroke when I was young. The other half of this answer is that I love nature, especially forest and animals along with flowers.

Jules at Trying To Get Over The Rainbow asked:  I want to know what the Queen carries in that handbag?

Now this is tough. I didn't see the queen's handbag. But wait. Jules didn't actually ask about a specific queen though our mind went to the royal wedding. So since I am not limited I am going to say that Queen Genevieve carried pepper spray to annoy all those royal magicians who weren't half as good as Merlin. I may have annoyed her with my spelling of her name as well.

There you have it. I hope you enjoy the answer to the creative questions my lovely blogging friends, Joanne and Jules asked.

Have a good day.

Two excellent questions, although on very different planes: one down-to-earth, and one speculative.
Excellent answers as well, one of them particularly down-to-earth.
I get heat stroke every time I walk to my back gate. The weather here can vary from -35C in the winter to +35C in the summer. That's 31 below 0 to 95 degrees F, a wide range although not as wide as what-would-you-do-if and the-queen's-purse.

That's cold Kay. I lived in Minnesota for awhile and we could have 50 below windshield. In Colorado, the summer can get over 100 degrees. Sorry, I don't know the C equivalent.

Thank you Duncan.

I'll enjoy seeing your artwork. I always find that a second art, for me photography, informs my writing too. It's interesting to see life through a lens, or paintbrush, or pencils, and gain that perspective.

And, I'm liking that Queen's handbag, very stylin' :)

Holly Ruggiero said...

Great answers. I can't wait for you to share your art!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Art's a passion of mine as well. Flowers... not so much!

N. R. Williams said...

Thank you Joanne, Holly and Alex. I appreciate your dropping by to say hi.

Jules said...

Art, can't wait to see that! Now, LOL! I imagine the Queen of England might carry some pepper spray as well. :)

Well I wonder what the Queen carries in that bag? Apparently they don't carry money. Maybe a good book for those boring moments she has to suffer.

Ooh, I kind of want that handbag! I bet she carries a spare crown in there, so she can slip from daywear to eveningwear as required.

N. R. Williams said...

Glad you liked it Jules.

Hi Bang.

Perhaps so Denise, good idea.

A spare crown Amie with fake jewels I suspect.

Thanks everyone for stopping by.

I recently rediscovered how happy planting flowers makes one feel... I put in a bunch of fresh flowers in my flower boxes outside, and wow. Immediate spirit lift! <3 :D good stuff~
