Do you use paper money? If so is your money organized sequentially according to denomination?
I still like to have some paper, well plastic actually, money in my purse at all times. I know you can use cards for almost everything now but I feel silly using a card for a four dollar cup of coffee. As I don’t carry a lot of money I don’t always worry about organising it sequentially but if I do have a wad of notes I may do that. Australian bank notes are different sizes so although I’d prefer to have the smallest denomination on the outside if I fold it I find it works better to have the higher and larger denominations there. When I was on holidays I did organise the notes sequentially because I’d never seen Singapore dollars or Malaysian Ringgits’ before and US dollars all look the same to me as it is all the same colour.
You are comfortable doing nothing? For long stretches of time?
I am very comfortable doing nothing but I call it contemplating, relaxing or enjoying nature. I’m not really doing nothing.
What is your greatest strength?
I’m not sure; perhaps it is that I have the ability to enjoy the small things in life.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
It was a pretty ordinary week for me. I haven’t quite got rid of the cold I picked up on holidays and have been a bit lazy. Probably what I’ve enjoyed most is going through a big pile of vintage magazines a friend gave me over the weekend. Naomi and I love old magazines. I love reading the letters and articles and looking at the old ads and lovely art work. I may even do a few posts about them later.
