Share Your World…Happy October….

1 . Are you easily frightened or startled?

That would have to be a not really…I’m pretty aware of my surroundings at all times…”To be aware, is to be alive 😉 .

2. (Purely whimsical supposition.  Suspend disbelief for a bit)
If you were a ghost, what location do you think you would haunt? Is it the same or different from the location you’d want to haunt?

If I were to haunt anything, I think it would be right outside my front door of my home…That way I could scare away anyone that I didn’t want coming over and probably be pretty sure they wouldn’t come back 😉 ...

3. What do you see in your mind’s eye when you close your eyes? 

I usually see my forever home by the ocean or maybe the winning lottery numbers 😉 . It’s usually something very comforting as I really look forward to laying back, resting with my eyes closed and just dreaming of wonderful things…All of my blessings the past ones and those yet to come…

4. If a Semi (Big Rig in Americanese) (lorry or trolley over the pond) were about to smash into a crowd, and you could divert the vehicle’s course to hit only one person, would you?  How would you decide who would become the victim?

This is a question that I don’t think I have an answer for…I suppose I would jump out of the big rig, steering it into an inanimate object hoping no one would get injured or worse !!!!

Erratum:   A “trolley’ over the pond is the same thing as a trolley here.  It’s a trolley CAR.   Ours in the USA run on electricity though.  I have heard of them jumping the tracks and going berserk, but not often.  This is just for clarification in case any over-the-pond ers are reading and thinking “She’s daft and she doesn’t know our language very well at all, does she?”  😉 

 

This is just Mz. MelBCee’s answer to one of the, “Share Your World” questions and I just thought I would share it b/c I enjoyed her answer. It had a nice melody i.e. rhythm to it and I enjoyed the way she used the word, “Daft.” I also carry a dictionary of words with me that I don’t know the meaning of and she gave me a couple of new words today that I will be able to add to my dictionary…Thank you Mz. MelBCee

GRATITUDE SECTION

Please feel free to share what makes you feel warm and cozy when the wind blows cold? Alternatively (for those on the other side of the world), what makes you feel relaxed and comfortable when the thermometer starts rising?

I am extremely grateful for how beautius this fall has been…It almost makes me think I’m going to be able to survive another Midwestern Winter. I am also extremely grateful for my family. All of them have truly taught me so much about life I simply can’t put it all here. I have been blessed with the most wonderful husband, children and grandchildren anyone could ever hope to have. Even in the rougher times, it’s all been worth it and I’d do it all over again and not change anything !!! I might of had one more baby 😉 . I wanted 6 but I stopped at 5 b/c the body said you’re done…and the husband I think was good with that. Blessings Blogger’sI’m glad to be back at it again, have a great rest of your weekend ❤ …

If the blog looks a bit wonky, it’s not my fault. I’ve been off for awhile and they keep changing stuff and I’m not the best at the tech stuff…Who cares…

I hope you don’t mind Mz. MelBCee…I stole your art work 😉 I just thought it was so pretty. I’m always stealing your stuff ❤ . I thought the least I could do is share your link to your blog…Blessings and thanks for the cool pics !!!

Questions

Happy Saturday and Spring will finally arrive tonight I think that’s what they say. I’ll be asleep when it gets here at like 4 am. Just breaking the ice and browsing the reader and came upon these questions from my fellow blogger Mz. Janet . Great questions and looking forward to AtoZ.

  • What is your favorite quote. I collect them. “Fate whisper’s to the warrior, You cannot withstand the storm !!! The warrior whisper’s back, I am the storm !!!”
  • If money were no object where would you go? Alaska, I love, love, love that state…I have never been there but the adventures look endless and the weather has got to be totally amazing to experience.
  • How many places have you lived or jobs have you held? I have lived in two places, Chicago, IL and Portland, ME…I have really only had two jobs, the 1st working for the Illinois Central Gulf RR, Commuter Side/Randolph Street Station, Chicago IL and my present job for the last 42 years, Wife/Mother/Homemaker which I have loved every minute of ❤ …
  • Have you tried meditation? Not in the conventional way but yes… Did it help you? It always helps. I consider mediation laying down, quieting all the noise in my mind and going to a place I have been that I loved or imagining doing something that I think would be amazing i.e. vacationing, moving to a place I would love to live. So many things and thoughts that bring me so much comfort.
  • Who would you like to meet (living or dead) for dinner?  I don’t know if this would count, but I would have to say Jesus…So many questions I have to ask and I could finally get an answer in person. Why, about so many things, what about tomorrow, when will it all be okay or when will this stop or go away. I’m not sure I would want to hear the answers but it might be comforting just sitting there talking with him. Of course I have had many conversations, albeit one-sided with him b/c, well you know. He’s a constant in my life and every day. I’ve just always talked with him 😉 and those conversations have given me peace and kept me going in the right direction.

QUESTIONS: 

If you could throw any kind of party, what would it be for?  (Covid considerations are suspended for this question)

I think the best kind of party is a surprise birthday party…Such a happy occasion and I love, love, love to surprise people…Especially those that I love ❤ S U R P R I S E … Y A Y

Is a picture worth a thousand words? Elaborate.

OMG absolutely !!!! I’ve got a few that mean so very much to me…

Generations
Family Love

Grandpapa/Missy/Cordell/Lizzie/Connor/Mariah & Olivia (Our gorgeous granddaughter’s) Gabriella’s (older sister) she’s somewhere and I’m taking the picture (Grandmama) Best Christmas picture ever !!!! Love you all ❤ .

Where IS Waldo?   (Waldo, for those unfamiliar with him, is a cartoon character featured in many “find Waldo” images and puzzles)      <——  WALDO

What’s the best part of waking up?

I’ve been blessed with a new day…A whole 24 hours to do with whatever I want and having that 1st cup of Coffee. My Coffee it the best !!!!

Would you rather be covered in fur or covered in scales?   (Wee disclaimer.  I’m certainly not advocating the slaughter of creatures and the use of their skins for clothing or accessories.  No!  This question is a ‘grow your own’ type question…if you had an option of your own skin being made of fur OR scales, which would you choose?)

OMG what’s the question FUR…

GRATITUDE SECTION (Always optional) 

Feel free to share your gratitude for our world!

My writing spaces…And there are many ❤ …

Share Your World/March 7 (so I’m a week late…)

QUESTIONS: 

  1. Is every piece of truth worth telling?   I’m not thinking that every little bit of the truth is worth telling. I think they would call that not being truthful by omission…Depending on who would get hurt with the cold hard facts, maybe it’s better not to… ❤
  2. Whom do you miss more Freddy Mercury or Prince?  (if you don’t know who those people are, just skip this question.  It’s cool). I’m thinking neither one really. Prince I really didn’t care for his music and Freddy Mercury, whatever. I did like Queen but I didn’t really have a bond with either of them. They weren’t my generation…I did like the song, “We are the Champions ❤
  3. If you could only email or text people for the rest of your life (no other form of communication), which would you chose?  I think it would have to email. Texting is just too impersonal…
  4. Would you prefer to work the midnight shift at a really creepy out of the way motel OR work alone for eternity? I’m thinking it would have to be working alone for eternity. At least I wouldn’t be scared out of my mind forever 😉 .

Bonus question because yes, these are a weird bunch this week:   What’s one secret you’re still keeping from your immediate family? (no details required.  You could say something like “The lost weekend in 1982”.  You can also answer “Why I NEVER keep secrets from my nearest and dearest!”). I can really say I don’t keep secrets and I don’t have any secrets…Or maybe I’m just getting old and I don’t remember if I have any secrets, but I don’t think I do 😉 .

QUESTIONS: 

What’s a relationship deal breaker for you?

That would have to be lying. I have to be able to know that what you say and do is real. Trust ❤ is everything for me ❤ .

Do you believe in extra-terrestrials?

There has to be. It’s just to big and vast for us to be alone here….eeeek !!!

In the morning, do you hit the snooze button on your alarm (sometimes repeatedly) or do you leap out of bed, ready to face the day?

I usually am always awake at 8/8:30 am…I don’t sleep any later than that…

If you came back in the next life as an animal, which animal would you choose to be?  (and even if you don’t believe in that, let’s suspend belief for a moment just to have a little fun)

I’m pretty sure it would be a dog. I just absolutely love, love, love dogs. Probably a Service Dog. I love people and making their life a little better ❤ .

GRATITUDE (Participation is always optional)

What do you plan to work on this year to make it better than last year  (personal goals, physically or mentally, or all three)?

I am going to try to eat better and exercise and get outside more. Fresh air and being outside can do wonder’s for you physically and mentally. I’m going to write more and set up my planner. Become the planner girl that I have always longed to be…Blessings to all the Blogger’s out there in the blogosphere. Oh that’s right, I’m going to grow my blog with my planner !!! Happy Everything, 2021 ❤ .

Share your World

I’m loving this challenge, as it has always been one of the fav’s !!! Thanks so much Mz. Melanie ❤ love, love, love the questions …Happy Thursday;)

Questions:

When was the last time you tried something new?

That would be right now b/c I guess blogging on this N E W version of wordpress comes under that category. It’s kind of a process and it’s just going to take some time…Blog, Add, Edit, Repeat…yadayadayada.   How did that go for you? I think it will be fine once I get use to it 🙂

What’s the most sensible thing you’ve ever heard someone say?

If your absence doesn’t affect them, your presence never mattered …

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

I’m thinking I would be around mid 40’s…For some reason that time in my life was easy, hopeful.

Lastly, I’ll be doing one “Halloween” themed question per week during October.  Those who don’t observe the holiday are welcome to answer or to ignore it as they wish.

Fun  CREEPY Halloween Question:

Have you ever seen a ‘fresh’ corpse (aka dead body)?

I’m pretty sure that would be a great big N O …


GRATITUDE SECTION (always optional)

Do you enjoy any seasonal traditions around this time of year? It’s not really a tradition, more like a changing of the seasons. I put away summer, i.e. clean out the garage, throw stuff away, clean up the yard. Take out the fall decorations and color. Inside is cozy, i.e. blankets, tea pot on the kitchen counter w/fall tea cups of course. Fireplace getting ready for some warm fires to snuggle by with a good book, cup of tea, and my pillows and blanket. Favorite season of all that would be fall. “I’m so happy I live in a world where there are October’s. 🙂 “
