TAGs for today

1. What would you do on a rainy (but not stormy) day?
I would probably be out of doors in it, or beside a window listening to the patter of rain. 
A rainy day is particularly one of my favorite things. Somehow it never gets less enthralling. 
And if I'm not admiring the weather or thinking of how I could capture such beauty, I probably would also be seated with a book or old movie.  

2. Is there any particular music/song that ever gives you chills from the beauty or inspiration of it? 
Classical music does this to me, most recently it's a classical piece by Brian Crain, the songs called song for sienna, and the piece was piano cello.

3. Is there anything you feel God has taught you over the past year?
To trust him ever more, the more I yield to Him the easier life becomes.

4. What comes to mind when I say the color red? (this is really random because I forgot include a 4th question originally)
Luxurious velvet, in hues of red, like the petal of a red red rose, blood, blood that is taken, blood that is given, like a sacrifice. Anger, red to me is spicy or flavorful, it's vibrant it's impassioned and vibrant and not ever apathetic.  Beautiful, as seen in a red sky pierced with the color of life, spilt across the heavens.
5. Favorite sidekick/best friend character from literature?

Oh dear, every book I've ever read draws a blank, I hate when that happens. 

6. Favorite Biblical name?

This is such a weird question, off the top of my head, Elijah, because it's meaning, 
my God is YAHWEH.
7. What would you do if you found you had a completely empty day ahead?

Write, or draw, or read a book, I've been known to devour a book in a day, with a cup of tea, what better conditions are there for a good read ? I'm always catching up on my creative scenes, making jewelry or sewing something. I love making fairies so all of that would be strewn out and about and I would successfully overwhelm myself on my off day. :))) I speak from experience, can you tell ?

8. What is your favorite book of the Bible?
That's a hard one, i like almost all of them, i love psalms for when I'm discouraged, but certain verses from Isaiah are amazing, then there's the whole new testament which is pretty much the most encouraging books for when you need it. i don't really have a favorite.  

9. Do prefer dresses or skirts?

dresses, definitely dresses, there easy and quick and the right one can look classic and chic. also classy.  
10. What book are you reading at the moment?

{Spiritually} a book called lioness arising by Lisa Bevere. 
{fun} the little princess, by Frances Hodgson Burnett 
{literary study} The sun also rises, by Hemingway

11. If you could own a book store what would the dominating book type be, and what would be its name? (Don't think to hard about it :))
This is like my dream, to own a book store, sigh, lovely thought. 
Um fiction, literature you know classical and romantic and the sort. I love classics. 
It would simply be called, PORTALS because books are like portals that take you to another place and time, almost by magic.

 I'd love for you to answer the questions!! Please let me know if you do, I know I would enjoy reading them! (you could even answer them in the comments if you want!)

Thanks miss Evelyn  for these fun inspired questions, I thoroughly enjoyed answering.
Visit missies blog tis quite lovely.


  1. I draw blanks on books when I need to remember them all the time too. I guess our brains aren't all that reliable.

    I like your list of things to do on days off. That's a good list 8-D

    1. I hate when it happens, but alas, I'm glad to know its not just me.
      Well it sounds as though we have much in common.
      thanks for commenting, miss jack

  2. Oh thank you so much for answering these questions, Hope!! All of these answers are lovely! What's interesting is my sister plays Song for Sienna on the piano! it is so lovely. :) The answer about the color red is just, so poetic! I love it so much, its so true - it perfectly describes the color red! And your bookshop sounds divine. Simply divine.

    1. She does truly ? Well thats just marvelous, I bet its absolutely gorgeous, I have always nursed a wish to play the piano.
      The bookshop thing is what i have always thought about. what better way to surround ones self with books and there lovers, I'm glad you think its not too far fetched. and thanks for the questions, they were truly unique.
