Wondering what Cee has in store for us this week? Let’s find out!
1. For your blog do you basically use Windows or Mac, laptop, desktop, pad, or phone? Since Windows 8 drove me to Mac, that’s what I use. I’ve done several of my blogs on the iPad, but decided it was easier really to just do them on the iMac, which is where the photos all are. One less step that way – the photos I’m going to use go in my blog folder, but I don’t have to also copy them to Dropbox so I can access them from the iPad.
2. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Since it’s been centuries since I’ve been a kid it’s hard to remember. What? You say you’ve told me a million times not to exaggerate? Fine! But you know you are a bit of a nitpicker, don’t you? I remember wanting to be a stewardess as a young girl, until I outgrew the height limitation which, as I recall, was 5’8″. As a big kid – that is, when I was an adult taking college classes at night and had an absolutely marvelous instructor in Business Law – I thought, briefly, that a corporate attorney might be good. When I was a kid, choices for women were limited.
3. Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it? Primarily small towns, although we did live in the suburbs of Denver for awhile too. I think I’ve told you before, we moved around a lot. A lot! I guess I liked it – when I was very young I loved the freedom of being in a country setting. I suspect as a teenager I wanted more. Don’t all teenagers want more? Now I like to visit a large city now and then, but live in one? Not!
4. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? Assuming there were no mirrors around to bely my real age, I think I’d probably be 45 or 50 – old enough that the major fluxes in emotions had died down, but young enough to enjoy life and appreciate that the driving forces of youth had simmered and mellowed.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I am grateful for the sunshine and warm temperatures that made working in the yard a pleasure and encouraged the spring birds to return and flowers to bloom. I am grateful for the day to relax and look for photo opportunities with the Artistic One (we went up to Crater Lake, photos to follow) and yesterday when the Gracious One, the Artistic One and I went over the mountains to the bigger city for a girls’ day of shopping. I am looking forward to another week of rising every morning and knowing I have loved ones in my life.
And now for those Crater Lake photos – Keep in mind as you look at them that the snow accumulation is much less than what is normal for this time of year.
Through the window in the gift shop, all you see is snow
Then I clambered, incredibly gracefully of course, up a snowbank to capture pictures of the lake
And turned around to show you the roof of the gift shop
Care to go sledding?
