Now that we are already at Sunday, and tomorrow is Monday which is when Cee normally posts the new Share Your World challenge, I thought I should make a real effort to catch up. This past week has flown by, leaving me in its dust. Again. So now my attempt to catch up, or at least pretend to be caught up – my Week 15 answers to Cee’s questions:
1. What is one of your quirky traits? Hmmmph! Is this where all of you find out those hidden inner compulsive behavior things about me? Only if I choose to share, you say? What the heck, here goes! The bills (we’re talking green, buy-things-with-it bills here) in my wallet must be in sequence and all facing the same direction. This comes, I’m sure, from my days working as a cashier in a theater when I was in business school. In those days, order and precision was a requirement. But then, we also had to count change back without the register telling us what it was. We had to – ahem! – use our brains! Then there’s my mania about not doubling back when out shopping – I plan my route so that I go in a circle, or as close to a circle as possible, and I hate doubling back. There are many other quirks, but I think I’ll keep some of them to myself.
2. What has surprised you about blogging? The sense of community; the feeling that you really do know some of the people who write the blogs you read on a regular basis. And that those who visit my blog know me – the long distance friendships that develop.
3. Which do you prefer sweet or salty? Or both at the same time? That seems to depend on my mood. Sometimes it’s sweet – and almost always sweet needs to be chocolate. Sometimes it’s salty. After I eat I seem to think I need just a little taste of chocolate. Sometimes when I get the nibbles, I want salty. One of the combinations I like in the summer (and this really has nothing to do with sweet or salty) is a dish of ice cream with a beer. Cannot explain why.
Now to share some pictures – nearly all of which were taken through my morning window, which is in need of a good washing.
