OK. So I haven’t shared 45 weeks in a row. Maybe there’s not that much to tell. (Or maybe I just can’t keep up) In any event, I’m sharing today, so, welcome to my (Cee’s) Share Your World.
What is your favorite color?
Green. Or any variation thereof…
In what do you find the simplest of joys?
Of late it’s…
finding a peace-filled moment
Would you prefer a reading nook or an art, craft, photography studio?
Definitely A STUDIO!
What is at least one of your favorite quotes?
” It always seems impossible til it’s done.” ~ Nelson Mandela
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, Time out for lunch with a very dear friend… and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? Nothing planned. Dull? Maybe, but it leaves me open for surprises.

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate each and every visitor.
I adore your zentangle peace sign. Maybe you need a week off and just do some zentangling. Thanks Gemma.
Thanks, Cee. Problem is doing everything I want that makes me happy and – Ah – a little less stressed.
Lunch. Yay. Second best idea ever. It’s hard to understand how the tangling is relaxing, but I’m happy it is! All the details and nuances would probably make me a nervous wreck.
You’d be surprised.
Next will need to be breakfast. 👍🍳☕️
I do love to see a repeat of the CND symbol
I knew you would, gerry. 😉
Untangling the brain sounds like an excellent idea, and combined with meeting a friend for lunch, you should be all set to go. I’m sure something interesting will reveal itself this weekend. 🙂 xx
Not dull at all. Very relaxing! I like what you have planned for next week. Surprise! Only good ones, I hope!
You’re not the only one! I’ll keep a positive attitude. 👍
OK, let’s think about this one – and if you haven’t done all of these question sets, well that’s life! So easy ones first – colour = red, always has been. Simplest of joys? (And I understand your answer here all too well) >>> Listening to the wind; being with little children, because they always make me smile and laugh; being with and stroking a friendly cat. And I’m right with you – the studio; if I had a reading nook I’d only doze off in it!
The quote – from former society photographer Cecil Beaton: “Be daring, be different, be impractical, be anything that will assert integrity of purpose and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers, the creatures of the commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.”. WOW! In a nutshell, I suppose – “Come out from amongst all those safe, concealing greys, and soar, sear and blossom with colours that dazzle!”.
Things to be grateful for are a little sparse at present as we struggle to get our home repaired – but table tennis yesterday was a lot of fun! A
I might have a new favorite saying. LOL Someone needs to get cracking on the repairs! Thanks for playing along, Adrian. xxx
Well when conversing with a Senior Repairer, I did mention your name and he did go rather pale … before going home for … clean underwear … >>> and I love that quote too, for me it sums up a lot in this world. And I like playing along, it makes me think about things that would nor otherwise be in my mind – and tells you more what I’m like – which is a Brit condemnation as in “What are you like!!!???” … we are, after all, a shy and cultured people … xxx
I love the peace doodle.
Thanks so much, Trish. 😉
Still zentangling! 🙂 I was just admiring the CND mug when I realised that the mat it’s sitting on- I have a set of 4 of them in the Algarve! My candle light sits on one of them on a little glass topped table.
Hope you have a good weekend, Gem 🙂
Similar tastes. I knew it! 😉
Thanks, jo. You do the same. 🙂
love your answers especially the quote
Thanks much. 🙂
I’m loving the zentangle Gemma ! You’ll have to work on a Christmas card design .. studio or no studio 🙂
💡 IDEA! Thanks, poppy. Fun! 💡
Leaves you open for surprises…I like that. 🙂
I also like the matt the coffee mug is on – and actually – your shot of that is so cool – the up closeness with the bubbles of the coffee and the feel of the matt – – the message on the mug is enhanced by the pattern – which had me looking a few times – just a great shot – and enjoyed your “share your world” 🙂 – and with the them of this post it is only fitting to sign off with “peace” ha!
Thanks, Yvette. I always feel lifted and inspired after reading your comments. Peace ☮
Love your tangle! Guess what I’m looking forward to this week? WORKING! Isn’t that just crazy? I think I need to be institutionalized!
Thanks. Lucky you enjoying work. Have fun and thank you for visiting.
loving the Peace theme. I heartily agree. If you make a pilgrimage to Bethlehem (the Christmas city) over the holidays, we could meet for lunch, too! You and Genevieve …. road trip! Think about it!! 🙂
I don’t doubt that that would be a most excellent adventure. Unfortunately neither of us are travelers. Gen by choice. Me by fear of flying. 😦
But I thank you for the offer and hope someday if you would be around these parts you’d consider taking a visit with us. Breakfast with Gen tomorrow. I’ll relay the kind offer.
oh my… silly me. I somehow thought you were in NJ, an easy day trip (not fly!!) from me. Ooops!
We ARE NJ!
Love your ‘Be Happy’ owl Gemma! Adorable! That is one amazing shot as well. One of my favourite colors as well. 😀
Love the mug and shot too and I would love to have a studio as well. Let’s dream big hon! 😆
Great doodle! You are so creative! Wish I could make myself look as awesome as you do as a cartoon. Love it! 😀 ♥
Sooooo many kind words, Sonel. Thank you! And if you use facebook you can create a character on Bitstrips through them. It’s fun and just about the ONLY THING I use Facebook for. 😉
Studio… Dreaming … ☺️
You’re very welcome hon and yes, I do use Facebook and I do know Bitstrips but I will never look as great as you do. 😀
Yeah, let’s keep on dreaming. 😆
I should have known, with all your talents that you would already be familiar. I am always a day late, a dollar short, and always asking people where they got this and that. ❤️
Awww Gemma, you’re way too kind hon. No talent this side. I am just a Googlist and it was hubby that started the Bitstrips thingy. When it comes to talent and creativity, I’m wayyyyy behind you hon. 😀 ♥
Expressing yourself through powerful still lifes —
Like the blogger here says — Be Happy!
It feels good to see your world. A enjoy a hot cup of coffee too. To bring the holiday mood, whipped cream with cinnamon sugar and pumpkin spice.
Thanks, Mr. B. 🙂
