SHARE YOUR WORLD – 2015 WEEK #11

It’s March 20, 2015.  It’s the first day of SPRING!  It’s snowing!  I will NOT share how I feel about that.  So…

List 2 things you have to be happy about?

I can’t even think of anything that comes before this.  I am grateful for my husband, Jeff.  For too many reasons to list.

001

And my other love, something that I will not say is my passion because I’ve complained about not having a passion, so I’ll just say it’s something that makes me happy, relaxed, and, yes, a little confident that there is still hope that one day I will have a passion.  My tangling.

Zentangle – A happy thing.  Not a passion

Do you prefer ketchup or mustard or mayonnaise?

Mayo.March 2015 009Everything else gets HOT SAUCE!

If you were to paint a picture of your childhood, what colors would you use?

Black, mostly.

Do you prefer a bath or shower?

Shower.  Definitely!  No photos.  Don’t thank me.  😉

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week,  Having lunch with my friend, Gen.  I have very little adult, human contact (sad, I know) with  Jeff working away from home so much and with Gen living two hours away, so I’m always grateful when I get to see her.  We talk (a lot), and laugh (a lot), and share (a lot) and for that I am oh, so grateful.

SHARE YOUR WORLD – 2015 WEEK 2

Are you a hugger or a non-hugger?

I’m a hugger.  Unless I know you don’t want to be hugged.  Then I’m not! (I can respect that.)

What’s your favorite ice-cream flavor?

Toss up.  Mint chocolate chip and butter pecan.  I’ll take a scoop of each, please.

Do you prefer exercising your mind or your body? How frequently do you do either?

Huh?

Just kidding, kinda.  I do a little of both.  Don’t want to get to crazy with either.  The old bones ain’t what they use to be and the mind, though a terrible thing to waste, doesn’t pick up on things too easily.  (Poor reading habits growing up. So now you know.)

Are you more of a dog person or a cat person? Why?

Although I live with both, I’d have to say I favor dogs, due to the unconditional love and all. (Does that sound needy?)

Rocky in recovery. ❤️

Phoenix. Dreamy. As most feline are.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am so grateful that our dog, Rocky is doing much better.  For those that don’t know, we had to have his left front digits amputated. (The Big “C” does not discriminate, the bastard!)

I am also grateful for my sister.  She is a wonder. Love you, sis.

The week coming up? Nothing in particular.  Just plain grateful.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – WARMTH

Warmth.  The unconditional love of a dog.

This is Rocky.  He’s 11 years old.  We think he’s a love, but if you came to our front door, you might not agree.  He’s very protective, to say the least. But he is also very devoted, caring, and VERY sweet – once you get to know him.  😉

055

Rocky is literally a junk yard dog.  We found him in Camden, NJ, yes, in a junk yard.  His dad was a giant of a dog, and very laid back.  His mom, not so much.  I don’t know if she was upset because someone was ogling her babies, or if she was just plain ornery, but she had one unpleasant disposition.  But Rocky was fluffy and little and cute and covered in ticks!  But that didn’t matter.  I fell in love.  So Rocky came home with us.   I spent some painstaking hours, over the next couple of days, cleaning him up.  And he cleaned up nice.  Now Rock gives us all the love he can muster.

He is chock full of warmth.

A week ago, Rocky had an operation.  Things appear to have gone well, but we’re not out of the woods yet, so keep your fingers crossed.

Love, caring, snuggles, and wet pup kisses.  He’s what “warmth” means to me.  

Hoping you all ring in the new year with some warm snuggles too.  Happy Holidays.

SUNDAY POST – A PLACE TO RELAX

Apparently several family members have different ideas about how and where to relax.
Phoenix, our feline, prefers my jacket and the couch.

Rocky, our shepherd, thinks my yoga mat is the way to go.

Jeff swears we will retire to South Carolina and Fripp Island is the place that convinced him of this.  Soooooo relaxing.

And, after a week’s stay in the hospital with double pneumonia, the flu, and congestive heart failure, my mom has found her niche in our home.  This is her new place to relax. Thankfully, she is doing a little better every day. This is momma in her sanctuary.

Now I need a place for me to relax!

SHARE YOUR WORLD – 2014 WEEK 11

It’s been a while, but I’m back to share. Yay! You say? Of course. How could you not. Sharing is the most fun. Take a look, then you share, too. Come on. Whaddayasay?

Question número uno:

If you were an ice cream cone, how many scoops and favors would you be and why?

~ 3. Butter pecan, mint chocolate chip, and blueberry – because those are my favorites and they are delicious and because 3 is a nice round(ed) number.

1061

Question number 2:

Are you left or right handed?

~ right.

Question #3

Before you make a phone call, do you rehearse what you’re going to say?

~ yes – we’ve discussed insecurities before. So that’s that.

And D:

How many rings before you answer the phone?

~ like Cee! I don’t. It goes to the recorder. I’m not big on phone conversation and there’s that introvert thing. So that’s THAT!

Bonus question:

What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

~ I’m grateful my mom’s doing better.
~ I will be grateful if this continues.

SHARE YOUR WORLD – 2013 WEEK 46

♪♫♪♪♫♪ Getting to know you. Getting to know all about you ♪♫♪♪♫♪

It’s Share Your World time again.  Here goes nothing…

Name one thing not many people know about you.

I use to smoke for over 25 years.  No more.

What is set as the background on your computer?

Some funky, psychedelic type design.  Surprise!

Have you ever gone scuba diving? If you haven’t, would you want to?

Never have.  But if I could swim, I’d scuba my brains out! But, Alas poor Yorick…  😦

What made you smile today?

We received a text from our son in Georgia.  Apparently our grandson has decided to become an elf.  We support him in his decision.  Mainly because he is so dang cute.  This made me smile – big!

I wish we could see them for the holidays.  Merry Christmas kiddies. ;-).  I’d love to share my world up close and personal. But in the meantime, I hope Santa is good to y’all.
