Quick Question - A to Z Challenge - The Letter Q

Blogging from A to Z Challenge
April 2016
This month I will be participating in the “Blogging from A-Z Challenge” 
What is it?

Blogging every day.  It begins on April First with a topic themed on something with the letter A, then on April second another topic with the letter B as the theme, and so on until I finish on April thirtieth with the theme based on the letter Z.   The theme of the day is the letter scheduled for that day.

Quick Question

Rico, our fifteen-year-old dog, was restless all during the night.  He started whining loudly at 4:00 a.m.   I was hoping he would settle down, but no such luck.   I finally had to get up to let him out.
But, then I couldn't get back to sleep.
Having spent many hours on the letter "P", filming and editing the podcast and then writing a post about the whole process, I was already overtired from the day before.
As I tossed and turned,  visions of "Q" words pranced around in my head.
I didn't want to think about the A to Z challenge, or what I could possibly come up with for the letter Q.
I just wanted to go back to sleep.
That's when I decided.  My “Q" word would be Quick.

So it came to be, a Quick post.

And then to the beach, I went for much-needed rejuvenation.

Don't quit yet, find the quick question.  It's here somewhere.

Oh, there it is!
Quick Question:

Where do you go to get a breath of freshness?


  1. Such a pretty place!! I hope Rico has a better night tonight!

    You might laugh, but just laying down on one of the couches for a few minutes can bring so much refreshness here (and a quick nap :)


    1. Rico is feeling his age. He moans and groans a lot. But then again so do we.
      I get it. A lay down can be just the thing.

  2. I like your quick question post. I kept expecting you to ask a quick question where you expected us to answer. I hope your dog is okay.

    1. Yes, Rico is okay, just a tad bit old. I guess you missed the quick question.

  3. I take a bike ride. We are about 2 miles from Lake Ontario. There is a pier I can bike to the end of and watch the waves and wave to Toronto.

  4. I'm lucky that I live on an island surrounded by beauty and freshness. It really is just so lovely to have beaches within walking distance. Soothes my soul.

  5. I like to open the windows in my house for my breath of fresh! I would love to have a beach to go to. Such a pretty picture!!

    1. It's finally gotten nice enough to open our windows. Going to the beach is the best refresher.

  6. Q is such a great letter. There are a few great words that work. I like to take a brief walk just outside my door when I need a little freshness. I prefer the beach, but my condo complex has some nice areas to walk.

  7. I used to go on quite a bit of walks. Not much of late because of fatigue.

    1. Sometimes a walk or fresh air can give you a bit of energy.

  8. I go to the park from my P post, but I would really love being able to be fifteen minutes from the beach. :)
