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.

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?

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.

WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE – THRESHOLD

Blissful Miss Spring:  Dear Old Man Winter, I’m begging you please. Move over.  Make room for the birds and some bees.

Old Man Winter:  Silly Miss Spring.  Get up off your knees.  I’m still not prepared to cut back on the freeze.

Blissful Miss Spring:  Sweet Old Man Winter,  oh, just a slight breeze.  One that will whistle through leaves in the trees.

Old Man Winter: Give a reason,  just one if you please.  A reason to bring back the birds and the bees.

Blissful Miss Spring:  Gosh, Old Man Winter.  Well – Geez Louise!  It’s just about time that you catch you some Z’s!

Looking forward to a blissful beginning to another new spring.  How about you?

This is in response to the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge – Threshold, as well as a blogger-friend’s reminder that it is poetry month. (Janna)   (And I throw out the word “poetry” loosely!)

SUNDAY POST – FLOWERS

“Earth laughs in flowers”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

If you don’t keep flowers in your house, you might want to think about it.  I’ve always had plants, but lately I’ve been keeping flowers in our bedroom.  They are the first thing I see when I get up, and if Earth laughs in flowers, well, flowers make me smile – every morning.

Stop off and smell the roses at Jake’s blog by clicking on the icon below.  And smile. 🙂

TRAVEL THEME – DELICATE

While out and about this weekend, I found what I think were appropriate subjects for Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week.  Though not much of a traveler, I did accumulate three different takes on the subject.  Tell me what you think.  Delicate? or Not so much.  And then travel over to Ailsa’s blog and see more delicate subjects from some seasoned travelers.  😉

A Christmas tree made of shells.  So delicate that I couldn’t buy it.  It was broken!

Whenever I’m in need of a pick-me-up, flowers always seem to do the trick.  Trader Joe’s  never let’s me down.

Yesterday, I spotted these ‘sailors’ .   This would not be my favorite mode of transportation, mainly because I am not a swimmer and I think it takes a delicate balance to keep you and your vehicle upright.  I did see a few of these sailboats tip precariously and that only reinforced my fears on the subject of sailing.  I also fell into a hole in the ground while making my way to the water’s edge.  Clearly not my cup of tea, this delicate business of boating.  But fun to watch.  Even if from a gopher hole!
