So now I shall answer some questions! Thank you Sarah, His Princess, Esther Filbrun, and Jane for your questions.

Sarah asked and I now answer.
1. What colour are your eyes?
My eyes are green and blue and gold-brown....Hazel. Sometimes they look more green and other times more grey. Some of the eyes on this post are my eyes.

2. Do you like using pens or pencils?
Pencils when I am drawing because you can't shade with pens or rub pens out. Pens when writing as if I try writing fast with pencils it is even harder to later decode... 

3. What was/is your favourite book?
Well this is not so hard as I first thought. The Bible is a book that brings great Joy and blessing to my life, and one of the books that I have read more than three times... and some parts like the Gospels, Psalms and Proverbs a LOT more times.... especially Proverbs, it has so many gems in it that are just waiting to be found.

4. Favourite school subject?
Literary Lessons From Lord Of The Rings. It is so cool to have to read Lord Of The Rings for school work and the studies on old epics and other things I have done with it are also fun... Today I had to write what Happened to the Entwives... I have always wondered and apparently Tolkien himself never really knew. So I made it up.

5. What would you do if you had noisy neighbours and needed to sleep?
I do....I ignore them....try anyway. Luckily I don't normally hear him when he starts up his truck at four in the morning but my poor mother and baby sister do.

6. Do you enjoy writing stories?
*Stares at you open mouthed* DO I? of course I do! If I couldn't write things I'd go to pieces...literally and that would not be a pretty sight.

7. What is your favourite animal?
Horses, they are such animals of grace and beauty and they can be such loving creatures. A horse is so free, agile, proud, spirited. There are so many stories that horses take a huge part in as they took a huge part in our history. As the saying goes "A dog may be man's best friend, but the horse wrote history." I just love watching them move. They are in my opinion the most beautiful of God's animals. I also think it is so amazing how we can control horses that are so much bigger and more powerful than we are, and we control them with force yes, and brutality, but also love and patience and respect which by far is the better way of doing it. Understanding them is the right way, not breaking them, "breaking" things does not normally result in good.

ah sorry about that but horses are well horses....and horses 

The hooves of horses!
Oh! witching and sweet
Is the music earth steals from the iron-shod feet;
No whisper of lover, no trilling of bird,
Can stir me as much as hooves of horses
Have stirred.

~Will H. Ogilvie
there I go again.....

8. Shoes or no shoes?
Well when sleeping definitely no shoes, it would be rather uncomfortable to sleep with them on. Though I must say I have never tried.

9. Blue or Green?
Grass would look very strange and rather scary if it turned blue so I would prefer if it stayed green.

or to answer that another way
Blue because when I am 'blue' I am only sad or maybe cold... Green on the other hand.... sick...not nice so definitely not green.

or if you didn't mean either of them....well neither
Purple is better...well if you mean colours and not turning purple because your circulation has been cut off and if nothing is done about it, whatever has turned purple might fall off. SO I wouldn't suggest turning blue, green or purple for any amount of time at least.

10. Do you go to school, homeschool or have you finished school?
Well I suppose I homeschool. I am not really registered any more as I am too old but I still do school work so I have not finished. So I must still homeschool.... and if you want to know what year I am in that is a silly question as you all should know we are in year 2014 unless of course you are a time traveler or you are reading this post in some year after 2014.

11. Why aren't the Sunshine Award questions an even number?
Why ask me? I did not make up the sunshine award business .... I just got nominated first in our "group" in the blogging world. Maybe someone just liked the number 11.... it is even if you add the 1 and the 1 of the 11 together 1+1=2.... which is even....But the sunshine award is sorta odd.

His Princess asked and I now answer.
1. Do you wear makeup?
NO... need I say more. I think makeup could be used lightly, maybe and it does not bother me when people use a little bit but I personally see no real reason to use it at all. I see too many people totally covering their faces with the stuff and making themselves look to me, quite hideous. 

2. Are your ears pierced?
Again no and I have no wish to... I do like jewelry but putting holes in my ears seems unnecessary and  knowing that my skin is normally annoyingly sensitive  I don't see any reason to argue with it further. So I shall content myself with occasionally wearing necklaces and bracelets (which I used to hate).

3. What is your favorite food?
Well I had to decide what to eat for tea on my birthday and on the night before... I chose pizzas and pies... I do like so many sorts of food though .

4. Do you have any pet-peeves?
Yes a lot but as soon as I saw that question I forgot nearly all of them....maybe one is being so forgetful....

I know... Photos and how people say to other people "What a lovely photo" and all sorts of nice stuff and it is a blurry unfocused photo.... the subject may be lovely yes but NOT THE ACTUAL PHOTO! Then they come and say the same thing about my photos... I love comments on my photos but somehow when they said the same thing about a terrible photo.... it is not the same. Or just using a phone and calling it a camera!...tis not a camera....horrid things....

I suppose people spelling my name wrong especially if it is in reply to an email or comment, so they should be able to see my name spelled correctly right in front of their eyes!

People smoking in public places.... anywhere near me... so I have to hurry away to find some air to breathe... they take up more than their fair share of air.

Mummy is so good for telling me of things that bug me.. the thing that bugs her is my spelling... which is bad.

5. Would you like a fifth question?
Well It doesn't seem as if I have a choice? So I shall be quite happy to answer a fifth question for you.... but where is it.... Oh I see now I am answering it! well there you go your fifth question is answered. 

Esther Filbrun asked and I now answer.
1. What's your favourite season?
I want what ever season it is not, because I am a human and the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. But each season I shall take and strive to enjoy. In winter there is warm fires inside and bonfires outside, cold starry nights and more excuse to wear jackets and scarves which I have a great liking for.

2. Do you have an all-time favourite quote?
Quotes I like quotes... I don't think I could choose.... but I do find this one amusing and I did just think of it..
"Outside of a dog, a book is a man’s best friend. Inside of a dog, it’s too dark to read."

there are so many good horse quotes too and funny ones "Horse riding is just like nuts and bolts. If the riders nuts, the horse bolts

And there are all the quotes from books and movies and... I can't choose so I suppose I don't have an 'all-time favourite quote' there are too many good ones.

3. When you write, do you prefer long-hand or on the computer?
Depends if I want anyone to ever have to read it. Or if someone has to read it.... other than me or even me.... long hand is fast but so is my typing... but long hand takes a long time to decode. I use the computer for most stuff but my diary is obviously not typed and I often hand write letters... I do wonder just how much trouble my friends have reading them.... and they are often not written fast... But I don't take a computer with me places... It just wont fit in my bag but a notebook does.

4. What is your all-time record for number of pictures taken in a day? 
I am not entirely sure....more than 500 though.... but I do delete a lot and often take shots of a single subject at lots of different angles so end up deleting some of them.

5. What is one thing you seem to collect and then keep collecting? (For me it's notebooks and stationery!)
Rusty things. I have collected them for years... I can't remember when I didn't and I have finally done something with some of them fairly recently. Actually quite a while ago. I covered posts with rusty stuff. They have considerably more stuff on them now than in those photos. I always knew the old rusty stuff would come in handy for something some day. 

I also collect stamps... they give me a headache though when I start trying to do something, ANYTHING with all the foreign stamps I have so they stay sitting in their box... forever unorganized. 

I collect jars of shells and shells that don't fit in jars.... and rocks...

and a lot of other useless stuff....

6. Do you like answering questions?
Considering I asked to be asked question I must not dislike it... Some questions in real life I get a little sick of answering at times. But when blogging I can think about the answers so I like that.

Jane asked and I now answer.
1. Do you get annoyed when your sisters quote Ranger's Apprentice and Brotherband non stop?
No of course not

NOTE: in our house stupid questions that the asker already knows the answer to are liable to get stupid answers. That are opposite, or just totally unrelated.

to put that answer another way..
Of course I do! and you (Jane) know that full well!

2. What would you do if I hijacked your Google+ account and deleted your blog?
Any why would you want to do that? And how would you go about it? You have failed to work out my twelve letter password... by watching me type it.... and you only know it is twelve because I told you. I type it too fast for you to work it out that way? Besides I know what your password is. And I don't think I have told you how to change yours yet... though you could work it out. So all that was a Red Herring but anyway I'm not even sure what I would do.... and do you even know how to delete blogs? I do.... and I know your password.... 

By the way... Does anyone know why elephants are wrinkled?

  1. Lol, this was such fun to read, Clare! You should do this more often, or maybe I should but I doubt mine would be as funny as yours. But I might try nonetheless. :)


    1. Well I'm glad you think it is funny... though I'm not sure what makes it so funny, but I did enjoy doing it!
