Hello! I hope that you're all having a delightful weekend and--if desirable--taking a break from all of your very active Doing.
For this week's prompt, I'll ask you a series of questions. You can answer all of them, some of them, one of them, or none of them. They don't mean anything, of course--I'm just trying to have fun with the prompting!
1. Have you given thought to any interesting animal species recently? If so: what animal, and why?
2. At what time of day is the light in your home most pleasing to you? At what time of year?
3. Do you nap regularly? For how long?
4. What did you have for lunch today (whatever "today" is for you)? Did you like it?
5. Who is most likely to interrupt you when you're working, and how do you feel about those interruptions?
6. What color do you most like wearing? What color (if any) do you dislike wearing? Why do we have preferences about what colors we wear, anyway?
7. What are you looking forward to in the coming week?
