Cee’s questions this week are the kind that I’m not sure I can answer. But I can spread words out in an attempt to answer, so I’m going to give it a go!
1. What is your favorite day of the week? Already I have no answer! Since I’m now retired, one day is much like the other, and which my favorite might be would depend on my mood I think. On those days where quiet seems to be what I want, my favorite day would be a day I can spend at home, just indulging myself with whatever it is I feel like doing. Other times, it would be the day I spend going to movies and lunch with friends. Or just spending time with those I love. Or walking with the big girls – the littlest girl, Lily, often following behind when we stay in our neighborhood.
2. Have you ever had a reoccurring dream? What was it? I don’t recall ever having any reoccurring dreams. I don’t often remember dreams, or at least anymore than just a bit here or there. Last night I dreamed I saw some birds in the yard – a Chickadee, a Finch, others I don’t recall. That’s probably because since we’ve been home from the hospital we have had no birds, not one, in the yard and I wonder where they have gone. I’ve put food out, but no takers. I miss them.
3. Have you ever been drunk? Yes, but not for quite a long time. The most recent was a few years ago when my kids and grandkids were here visiting – we sat too long on the deck drinking wine, and I became quite happy, flying over the chimneys – we laughed a lot that night. And still we laugh about that night.
4. Out of your five senses (touch, taste, sight, smell, hearing) which is your favorite? Oh my. Touch – how would I know if things pass the soft test without my sense of touch? Taste is not so important, although I would miss the taste of chocolate especially. Sight? Most of my interests involve sight – I think perhaps sight would be the most important. Smell? I love the smell of peonies and lilacs, fresh-cut grass, sheets dried on the clothesline – but I think smell would matter less than touch and sight. Hearing is often how I know what’s going on around me, and I think losing the sense of hearing, like the sense of sight, would be like living in a dark cave. I think I cannot pick one sense, but must pick two – sight and hearing.
