I'll answer here:
Favorite Christmas Holiday Movie is the Grinch.
Favorite flower is peonies. Or gardenias. Or maybe tulips. Or... I can't choose.
Favorite non-alcoholic drink is hot chocolate.
My passion is my kids, I guess.
Favorite time of year is summer.
Favorite time of day early evening in the summer when it's still warm and light out.
Favorite physical activity? Maybe I shouldn't answer that one here. :-)
Favorite vacation was to the Serengeti.

Debby, you so deserve the Sunshine Award! Thank you for sharing this your list of favorites!

Stephanie said...

My trip to Paris is by far my fave trip of all time, now that being said, your back yard looks like it would be a hard place to tear yourself away from!

I love It's A Wonderful life and lemon water too. So nice to connect with you in the blogging world!

Joyce said...

I'm a huge fan of rannunculas too...I've seen some that are a dark shade of purple that I absolutely love. I think they'd be so pretty in a wedding bouquet.

Enjoy your day!

That flower is beautiful! I don't think I've ever seen one before.

Tesha said...

Oh WOW beautiful tree!!! Also got to love your amazing view:)

Tami said...

Your tree is gorgeous! Want to do mine? Actually, I don't mind decorating the tree, it's the taking down that I hate!

Lea also known as "CiCi" said...

Interesting questions and answers and your tree is perfectly beautiful but as someone else said, I'd hate to take it down.

Have a great week!

I like water with lemon too. So light and refreshing. I also adore that movie! I try to watch it just once a year so it never gets old to me.

I agree with you on movie and flowers -- excellent choices!

The Boston Lady said...

Hi Debby! Just getting home and catching up. I would love to answer these questions for fun:

1. It's a Wonderful Life (I wanted to be Mrs. Bailey!)
2. Hydrangea
3. Lemonade (pink, please)
4. My family and friends, but I'm trying to branch out. lol
5. Winter and Sppprrriiinngg. Cool and beautiful.
6. Evening, quiet, sun going down.
7. I would say kickboxing, but haven't done it in so long, so now I say hiking which I hope to be doing a lot of in SoCal in the cooler weather to build up my lungs!
8. Pulling our pop-top camper from Florida to the Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion Canyon with an old Ford Aerostar. Then camping in Circus Circus parking lot in Las Vegas while our broken down mini-van was fixed. Kids, 14 and 10 at the time. Unforgettable.

Thanks for making me reflect Debby. I still want to be Mary Bailey...
