A-Z of Me, Part 2
Just for Fun!
Today I’m joining many other bloggers who have created A-Z posts. This is Part 2; find A-Z of Me, Part 1 here. Thanks to Nicki at The Secret Library Book Blog and Lynne at Fictionophile for the inspiration!
N is for Naps!
Whether listening to the roar of waves at the beach, lounging by the pool, crashing in front of the TV, or gently rocking in the back porch swing, the day becomes a little sweeter with space for a cat nap!
O is for Oceans!
Laguna Beach, Newport Beach, Huntington Beach (Surf City), La Jolla, Santa Barbara, Hawaii!
Everything is better at the beach! I’m fortunate to live within driving distance of all these California beaches. Have you been to any of these beaches? Do you live near a beach? What is your favorite beach?
P is for Popcorn!
At home, at the movies or the ballpark, popcorn is my favorite snack!
Q is for Quirky!
If I were an archer, I would use a cool word like quiver. Or if I were a musician, I might be in a quartet (although I’m not musical, I love listening to String and Barbershop Quartets and The Four Tenors!).
After some consideration of Q, I settled on Quirky. Some of my favorite literary characters are quirky (we call them quirky but really they are brave individuals who are overcoming obstacles and striving to live their best lives). For example, Eleanor of Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, Ove of A Man Called Ove, Harold of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, Britt-Marie of Britt-Marie Was Here, Ruth of the Inspector Gamache series, Martha of The Library of Lost and Found, Keiko of The Convenience Store Woman, and Harold of The Music Shop. Do you have characters you can add to this list? Aren’t we all just a little bit quirky?
