Sharing my World – Week 21

It’s already Sunday again – where does the time go anyway? There are weeks where I might have no idea what day it is, but we can count on Cee of Cee’s Life Photography Blog to provide the sharing our worlds reminder that it is, indeed, Sunday. This week’s questions are bit more of a challenge than some have been, I think. We’ll see how this goes.

1. If you were hav­ing dif­fi­cul­ty on an impor­tant test and could safe­ly cheat by look­ing at some­one else’s paper, would you do so? I think not. I’m sure I’d be tempted, but I know without a doubt if I try to cheat I will get caught. And I do guilt really well, so it just wouldn’t be worth it.

2. Since ado­les­cence, in what three-year peri­od do you feel you expe­ri­enced the most per­son­al growth and change? This one is really hard. I think I would have to say during the three years after my divorce from the father of my children – when I was really and truly on my own with two kids to support back in the days when there was a huge difference in the what a female was paid and what a male was paid. I learned I am a survivor, I learned I can do very nearly anything I set my mind to do, I learned that “I am woman, I am strong”.

3. If you could change one thing about your home, what would you like to change? My kitchen. I would get new cabinets, or at least paint the existing cabinets, glass tile as a backsplash, and laminated wood flooring. Unlike all those people looking for homes on HGTV’s House Hunters, I would keep my non-granite countertop, but I would probably trade in my white refrigerator and dishwasher for stainless steel.

4. If you were given a yacht today, what would you name it? Serenity, I think. Then I would take it to a lovely, secluded cove, anchor it and just relax with my loved ones.

I loved how the light was hitting the fountain and the greenery.

    I think you like to “come out and play” Carol. I am glad you are a survivor who finds beauty in light and honesty.

    I like the yacht idea…a lot! Be sure to get the girls some life jackets. Not sure Lily will want to cooperate. And I raise a glass of wine and say “here’s to Survivors!”

  4. We are “kitchen” people too. And while our is by no means fancy, it’s spacious and practical.

  5. I love the yacht idea, too. And I’m with you on the non-granite counter tops. What is the fascination with granite?

    Tough questions! I’ve always called myself a rule-follower for precisely the reasons you mentioned regarding not cheating on a test. Love the tree face 🙂
