Share Your World


 

A piece of clothing from your younger childhood you still remember?

 

I had a plaid dress. The primary color was purple but all the blues, reds, and yellows had me fascinated by the magic of the blends. I am still looking for that plaid just to see it.

Somewhere between these two I found on Google:

I, also, had a dress handed down from my fashionable cousin that had pink buttons along the scoop neck and the skirt was striped. For some reason, it reminded me of Good and Plenty candies.

Irregardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility: If you could be an athlete what would do do?   Remember this is SYW, dreaming is always allowed.

I’d be an Olympic swimmer or swim the Channel as they say.

In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?

Driver, unless stuck on the parkinglot of a freeway. I don’t like lots of traffic or town driving. I hate traffic circles!

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  I was so happy to get to see family and friends in Reno last week. And yes, it was a fantastic drive.

Share Your World – February 12, 2018


 

Are you a practical jokester?

No. I don’t like the kind of humor that makes another person look stupid. It is why I gave up watching Ellen. For the most part, I love her, but watching her terrify her guests or do tricks on them didn’t do anything for me.

Who cuts your hair?  You, a friend, or professional.

I do. I never like how the beauticians do it. I was a cosmetologist in my twenties. I quit because standing in one spot hurt my back and legs horribly. I still love cutting and coloring my own hair. I just wish I could take off my head and sit with it and fix it all up like we could the Gloria-heads we learned on so long ago. But if there are mistakes, heck, it grows and I can fix it later. I don’t have to look at it.

Ah, the memories flood my head and nose of the days working with this lady! I miss her!

By the way, here is what I use now as it is quicker and cleaner than scissors:

Did you have a stuffed animal when you were a kid, if so what kind?

Well, I had a bed full that looked something like this:

But my favorite looked something like this guy the last I remember of him:

Many things make me smile in a week and I appreciate so much. Why do I never write them down so when confronted with this question I have a ready answer?

I loved the snow we got last night. There are still patches tonight. I got to show my California son his new normal as it fell last night. Speaking of which, it is starting to look like I have a living room again. They aren’t finished with the move but it’s settling. Wish the living room were warmer so I could stay in there and work more. But summer is coming regardless of what the Starks say!

Thank you, Cee, for the inspiration and memories!


 

 

What would be your ideal fantasy way to spend Monday?

With all that has been going on with moving in my son, today we took the dog for a walk. It was fun to chat and stroll. Perfect Monday.

What one person that you are out of contact with would you like to say thank you to?

My grandmothers and aunts. Every one of them gave me gifts to be grateful for. My maternal grandmother was a spitfire a tiny giant. My paternal grandmother (who I think I look like most) a warm hospitable woman with a sense of humor that lasted far past her Alzheimer’s. My maternal aunts who taught me to knit, crochet, sew, and to want and love children. I think of them every day! My paternal aunts, one inspired my desire to learn German and encouraged me in ways I didn’t even realize until I got older. Another of my paternal aunts feels near all the time. Her sense of humor, like her mother’s and love that just never ended. Her daughter shines the same love.

There are so many other aunts and ALL my wonderful cousins–What you wanted ONE person? Can’t narrow it down!

Oh, and we haven’t started on friends… If this wasn’t so public I would mention each and every one. I love you all!

List your favorite toys or games as a kid?

Swimming pool. Does that count? Okay, pogo-stick, jacks, twirling on the bars at school, swinging, oh how I miss swinging. Hula hoop, biking, wiggle-waggle board, BOOKS,oh, and swimming. Other things I loved are pictured above.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

Going through all the pictures of the games and toys made me smile. Thinking of my awesome life makes me smile.

Thank you Cee for this fun way to explore our worlds. Check out her site: Cee’s Photography.


Complete this sentence: I’m looking forward to….

Though the circumstances are rather sad (their father is very ill and they need to move him closer) I will get to see my offspring this week end as they move my oldest in to live with us. There goes my music/hobby room but I mostly work here in my bedroom. The piano will move into the living room. Even so I look forward to seeing everyone even for so short a time. Just praying the snow isn’t a problem. We’ve had weeks of fairly nice weather but the news is predicting winter weather in the next few days. After they are all safe and sound in their own homes the weather can do what it wants.

What is your favorite comfort snack food? 

With the stress of my ex being ill and worrying with my kids about their father and the next steps, I have been craving Pringles. Luckily there are none here so not able to binge. Yay! Me!

What was one of your first moneymaking jobs (other than babysitting or newspaper delivery)?

Well, that is the main thing I did as a teen and young adult. I have a lot of cousins so I was always babysitting. My first real job was as a cosmetologist. If it hadn’t been so painful for my back I would still be doing that as I loved the creativity of working with hair.

I shared yesterday the Heart to Heart answer to I can’t: “Show me the hard part.” These words not only can help a young child, but I think it meets the frustration in all of us.

Share Your World is the brain child of Cee’s Photography. Thanks!

 


 

Sorry to be late to the party. Share Your World is a Monday thing. To learn more about it go to Cee’s Photography. She had a ton of challenges and fantastic photos to boot!

 

Do you prefer a bath or shower?

When I was younger this kind of situation would make me drool. Deep long baths are so soothing. But our clawfoot is sitting up on a platform about a foot and a half. Getting in is difficult. After a long soothing bath it is impossible to get out–for me. After pulling the shower curtain down with me, I decided against those long spa treatments. Now it is a quickie in the small bathroom over the sink or a quick shower. UNTIL my shower in the small restroom is completed. Hopefully by the end of this week. Then showers become my second favorite.

What do you do to make a living or during the day? If you are retired what mostly occupies your day? Or if you are a student what are you studying?

Retired means finding your own rhythms and desires. If you have money that is a limitless dream. But on SSI it is tight. Still, I spend my days making comfort items for charities with donated yarns. Mostly I loom knit. I’m learning to do some needle felting. I spend some time on four languages on Duolingo. And I write and edit previous writings of 12 or 13 books. And lots of reading and binging on Netflix.

Is there a stuffed animal in your bedroom?

Since I do my knitting in my bedroom, this is an example of the stuffed animals in my bedroom. Or does the always hungry Rosey count as stuffed?

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

I think getting back into my blogging and getting to meet new people or learning more about my blogging friends has filled my heart with joy. You all are fantastic!
