Who is your favourite Harry Potter Character?

While I enjoyed the first Harry Potter movie, I haven't read any of the books or seen any other movies in the series. If I have to pick a favourite character I would say Hermione.

What is your favourite book?

This is a hard question as there are so many great books out there. If I had to choose I'd say When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi.

Do you like to workout? If yes, what is your favourite workout routine?

I do enjoy working out! My favourite workout routine is taking a long walk next to the ocean like the seawall in Vancouver.

What is your favourite blog resource?

Without a doubt, Canva. I appreciate all the features of the site and use it with every blog post.

What is your favourite food?

This is another hard question for me! I love almost anything, but Italian and Thai are my favourites.

Favourite time of day? Morning, afternoon, night?

I'm a morning person. I've been retired for a couple of years but can't shake the getting up at 5:30-6 am lifestyle I had for so many years.

Coffee or tea?

Coffee is my first choice and love it brewed or in espresso based drinks such as cappuccino/lattes. I do enjoy tea as well, and have and usually have a cup of tea each day as well.

What is the #1 thing on your bucket list?

To continue to travel as much as I can. I love seeing new places, as well as returning to cities I really enjoy.

Who is your favourite cartoon character?

Snoopy from Peanuts! I absolutely love him and have started collecting various Peanuts memorabilia.

What is your favourite book series?

The Winter Series by Elin Hilderbrand. I would love to visit Nantucket at Christmastime one year!

What is your favourite form of self-care?

Reading with a coffee or glass of wine is what I do to relax. It's also what led me to blogging!
