I’m a day behind because my internet died Saturday night and did not return until Sunday night. I believe it was an operator’s error (husband being operator), but he says no. Do you have any idea how crippling having no internet is? My normal morning routine is to sit with my coffee, check the weather, check Facebook, read email, read and comment on blogs, then do my blog. All of which requires internet. Yesterday morning, with no internet, I was forced into . . . horrors of horrors! I had to actually do some HOUSEWORK!
Ahh, but today we are back to normal and I am now ready to participate in Cee’s sharing of our worlds.
1. You are comfortable doing nothing? For long stretches of time? No, not really. I am content to sit with a glass of wine on my deck and watch nature’s world for awhile, but rarely do I sit and do absolutely nothing for any length of time. Even watching TV, I need something to occupy my hands – hence, the knitting. Before I quit smoking, the cigarettes kept my hands happy. Just not so good for my body.
2. If you could inherit a vacation home anywhere in the world in which you could spend two months a year, where would it be? On the coast, preferably the Oregon coast. Or maybe I should get an RV with an endless supply of gas, then I could drive it to wherever my whims took me.
3. If you were instantly able to play one musical instrument perfectly that you never have played before, what would it be? Oh gosh. I don’t know – probably the guitar or maybe a harp. If I had a harp and could sit and play it, maybe people would think I’m an angel. Or not.
4. Would you rather be given $10,000 for your own use or $100,000 to give anonymously to strangers? I would love to have $100,000 to give as I see fit, but to be completely honest at this point in my life, living on a fixed income, I’d have to say I’d take the $10,000. That would let me have laminated wood installed in my house – no more carpet!! Maybe even some new cupboards and tile backsplash – ceramic with glass tiles inserted here and there.
Today I think I’ll share some photos I took when we drove back to Minnesota; actually, I’ll probably be sharing some photos from that trip for a few days. If any of you were following me way back then, when I was on Blogger, you may see some repeats. Today I’ll share some old buildings – I love the bits of history that can be found out in the middle of nowhere, in this case I think it was North Dakota.
