This week, I decided to participate in Cee’s Share Your World challenge for the first time. Cee asks a few questions each week and bloggers respond…
What is your favorite smell? What memory does it remind you of?
This one’s easy. Coconut scented sunscreen lotion, like Hawaiian Tropic. This always reminds me of happy days at the beach, somewhere hot and sunny.
A couple of years ago, I was working at the airport in an office job. The building I worked in housed crew bases for several airlines, and every now and then I’d catch a whiff of coconut sunscreen in the staircase… left behind by a flight attendant returning from somewhere exotic, no doubt. It always made my day!
What type of pet do you have or want to have?
I’m allergic so I don’t have any pets. Unless you count the cats and dogs of the internet… I love browsing cute animal pictures online – I’ll admit it!
Are you usually late, early, or right on time?
I’m very impatient and horrible at waiting for things to happen or meetings to start. So I’m usually just on time – or a bit late. To avoid waiting!
For recharging, would you rather meditate, swim, walk, listen to music, write, read, yoga, qigong, other?
I’d love to swim but as I live in Finland, I rarely get the chance. Writing (blog posts) and reading can be relaxing – I also love yoga. During the past few years, I’ve come to really enjoy doing Yoga With Adriene videos at home. She’s awesome!
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful for being healthy… I’m looking forward to mustering the energy to try out my new gym, hopefully this weekend!
The photos are from Helsinki, Finland, which is where I live. I’m not entirely happy with the framing etc but it’s just too cold to stop and take proper photos in the winter! Freezing fingers! These are from January 2014 and that’s probably my last attempt at taking winter photos.
