I’d Rather Be…

If given the choice, what would you rather be doing, right now?

The Lady in the Park by Leo Mol.

You’ve likely seen a bumper sticker or a sign that reads “I’d rather be…” How would you fill in the blank? Golfing? Running? Fishing? Something else entirely? What activity do you enjoy most?

When you enter the Leo Mol Sculpture Garden in Winnipeg, Manitoba, The Lady in the Park sets the tone: you’re entering a place of beauty, peace, and tranquility. Notice how there’s room on the bench for you? How could anyone possibly resist?

The Lady in the Park by Leo Mol.

Her nose — perpetually in a book — represents heaven to me. When I respond to “I’d rather be…” the answer is always the same. I’d rather be reading.

Now, it’s your turn. What would you rather be doing? If you’ve got more than one hobby, don’t be shy — you’re welcome to share the myriad ways in which you’d prefer to be spending time.

      2. Thank you! 😀 It can be a task, but the benefits are amazing! Although, days like today I wouldn’t mind an office to hide thats not in sight of my toddler! We have a few small businesses that I run ( mainly on social media) along with 3 small humans and I just finished writing my first children’s book….. praying I get traction and find a publisher!

      3. I have a vegetable garden that is my passion, but I also plant flowers around my house and garden shed. Moon flowers are my absolute favorite! I will be posting about my garden this spring and summer on my page 😊

      4. I grow beets, carrots, radishes, green beans, watermelon, cucumbers, cantaloupe, corn and a few other things. Lol I plant plenty so I can some and we are able to eat it throughout the winter also. My husband actually expanded my garden so I could have more room this year. I’m so excited!! It is my anxiety therapy!

      6. The only thing I struggle with sometimes is finding time to pull weeds. Our kids keep us really busy. Lol but I always catch up on it. Gardening was something my grandparents always did but I never paid much attention to how they did things (wish I would have more), so I just go with it and ask questions if I’m not sure. One thing that I have learned is to always follow the directions on depth to plant seeds. It does help with my anxiety a lot! You could do an indoor garden with a few plants. Just make sure you have sunlight!! 😊

      7. Yes they can be so annoying we used to have apple trees and I would have to pull out weeds and throw out the rotten apples! There were so many! >.< Yes we can learn so many things from our parents and grandparents! For sure I have indoor plants in my room 🙂
