august 7



What new skill would you like to master overnight?

Painting with water colors. I´d love to take my easel anywhere and be able to paint what I see. I´d start in Maine and work my way south...

Play piano!

Daan said...

Without a doubt, it would be ballroom dancing. Interestingly enough, it is really popular here, especially at weddings. I have a problem with 1, 2, 3, 4, and remembering which foot goes at which count. My husband is a really good dancer and I often have to "lend" him out at weddings... we usually have one friend who you can see that the girl has "itching feet", while the guy has no intentions of doing anything close to dancing. So... I just wait for them to play the "free-style" music before I hit the floor.

Ooh that is a hard one, I think painting with oil paints. Then I could whip up amazing art for my home.

Joyce said...

I would love to capture what I see and feel through my camera lens. Sewing would be another thing fun to pick up.

Have a golden weekend! xoxo

janis said...

The two that I can think of off hand: singing and playing the viola. I think it would be nice to be able to play it and/or sing along, to feel more integrated into the music.

SusannRomy said...

Hey =) I've followed your blog for so long! I enjoy all your pictures and little stories!
To answer your question: I love singing, unfortunately I'm not exactly giftet with a voice ;-/ So if I could learn something over night it would be singing!

latisha said...

Speed cleaning. I hate to clean and it would be awesome if I was able to clean in a short amount of time.

Dancing. I have always felt like I should have been a dancer.

Crescent Moon said...

If I can learn it over night with no actual work, I'd like to learn to speak Spanish. Second choice would be to play guitar.
