Wednesday Medley

I thought since I am away from home and completely out of my routine, I would join up with Terri for
this week.

1. If you didn’t have to sleep, what would you do with the extra time?
I don't sleep well anyway, and tend to waste the time I am awake.  I should use that time to do Bible study, read a good book, go through and organize all the pictures I have stored away, or best yet, scan my parent's love letters for posterity.
2. What’s your favorite piece of clothing you own/owned?
I recently bought a pair of leopard jeans that I think will be my favorite for the fall.  You can see them next Monday on my blog post.  I think the item of clothing I would have the hardest time parting with right now is a beautiful, heavy tapestry jacket.  I've had it for years and have compliments every time I wear it.
3. What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue?
I don't really want another hobby.  I need to do more of the one hobby I love and that is painting.  I met an artist last week and he said the one thing that keeps him going is painting a bit every day.  I don't know that I would it every day, but I do need to paint often to just keep myself inspired.  My quandary is what to do with a painting when I finish. 
4. What would your perfect room look like? (You can post a picture.)
 Rustic Elegance in MONTANA
I think I could soak myself wrinkled in this spot and with this view.
5. When was the last time you climbed a tree?
Too long ago to remember, but I was a climber when I was a kid.  We made many a pretend trip from the limb of a big Oak tree in our yard.
6. Tell us something you will do/did today.
We are at our son's house in northern Indiana for a couple weeks.  We are here this week with our HS senior granddaughter and grandpuppy while son and wife are in California. 
Besides walking the puppy multiple times I have researched how to make a toga for granddaughter's HOCO dress requirement for tomorrow.  I plan to spend time going through and editing some of the pictures I took while traveling through Kentucky last week.  It will be a fun, busy day doing what I enjoy.
This is just a preview of what is to come.
Thank you, Terri for hosting us today for

Hello, My name is Libby. I enjoy reading good books, painting, blogging, spending time with friends and whatever my "Heart" leads me to do. Welcome to Beauty Without Within.


  1. Wow, doesn't that room with a view look fantastic! I hope you're going to have some nice weather while you're there in Indiana. Sounds like a fun thing to do - a granddaughter and a grandpuppy. What's not to love about that! Do you paint with oil or with acrylics? I'm wondering because years ago I used to do rosemaling. I really enjoyed working with oils, but the amount of time I spent cleaning my brushes ended up being more than I had to actually paint. I hope you get back into painting. It does sound so therapeutic!

  2. That is my kind of view!! And that last photo is absolutely gorgeous. I can't wait to see your pictures. You definitely need to find some time to scan those letters and do some painting. But I understand your dilemma in what to do with them. The kids' grandmother was an avid painter and she gave her paintings to her children and grandchildren. She painted special things for them. I even have two of her paintings.

  3. Hello and thanks so much for joining the Wednesday Medley today! Nice to meet you!! Enjoy your time with family. I hope the temperatures in Indiana are comfortable. We are still sweating through the 90s here in central Florida!

  4. What a fun meme! I'll have to check it out. I quit cross stitching after I had no one else to give it to. I had all I wanted/needed and had done all the family a piece. So, perhaps, if you haven't already, give your next art pieces away. Continue to enjoy this special time.

  5. I enjoyed reading your answers Libby! How fun to be spending time with your granddaughter! Blessings~

  6. Really interesting dear! That room is so amazing! Looking forward to see the photos! xoxo
