Share Your World – 2013 Week 26

This week, Cee wants to talk about things like peanut butter. Peanut butter? Yep – she is reaching into our innermost parts to learn more about us. Because how we like our peanut butter is important, you know. Okay, maybe not important, but fun!

1. Are you left or right handed? Right-handed. My left hand is there to help balance, lift and carry things, and to hold my rings. Back in the day when I wore a watch, my left wrist was where it lived. The watch got in the way on my right wrist. That was when I actually used a pen or pencil and wrote things on paper. Real paper, not digital. Which is when I wore a watch, because now who needs a watch when our cell phone will tell us not only the time, but the day and date. Believe me, I need all the help I can get remembering that day/date thing.

2. Before making a phone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say? No, no usually. Unless it’s a call regarding a complaint, but rarely does the conversation go the way I rehearsed. I am very good at replaying conversations after the fact and coming up with much better things to say than what I said.

3. Crunchy Peanut Butter or Smooth Peanut butter? Anything with your peanut butter? Smooth, creamy peanut butter. The crunchies get in the way. My favorite thing with peanut butter is sliced bananas, both on bread of course. Peanut butter is also very good on celery sticks. Peanut butter and honey or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches occasionally, but most often these days it’s peanut butter on toast that has been slathered with butter first. Remember? Bread is a vehicle for butter.

4. How many rings before you answer the phone? A ringing phone makes me crazy, so I get to it as quickly as I can. I am unable to just ignore a ringing phone. Pretty sure this goes back to all those years when phone calls and service were an integral part of my work day. Now I really hate talking on the phone and rarely initiate calls.

There have been wildfires to the north of us and to the west of us the past couple weeks. Nothing near enough to be a threat, but the smoke from those fires does pour into our basin and linger. The result has been some rather colorful skies, and I’d like to share a few samples with you now.

    So glad the fires are not close to you. Kinda sad that the destruction is what makes the skies so gorgeous in other areas. And, if by “filled with enough” you mean crabby Monday people, then yes….I’ve more than enough today!

  3. Peanut butter and bananas are always great together; but I like that idea of peanut butter on top of BUTTER on top of bread. Yes!! I think I’m going to make that right now. 🙂

    Crunchy peanut butter is difficult to spread, too. And instead of “anything with your peanut butter,” I prefer to think of it as “peanut butter with anything.” 😉
    As for rings…my phone only sings crickets at me, and I only answer it if I feel like it. I’ve tried pretty hard not to be tied to technology outside my working hours…which isn’t to say I’ve succeeded. I do better in some areas than others.
    Love skies. Hope for the best outcome for those nearest, and for your skies not to become too smoky.

    I’ve never put butter on toast before adding peanut butter. I shall have to try it to see what I’m missing. You and I are much alike on #4. Tethered to a phone for years, I’d much rather text or email now. The smoke does make for a pretty sky, your pictures are lovely. Thanks for sharing them.

    LOL, you are so right – bread is indeed a vehicle for butter! I’ve never tried buttering toast before adding the peanut butter but that sounds yummy.
    Your colorful skies are lovely.

  9. OMGoodness! I never thought there was anyone else out there that liked peanut butter/butter on toast besides me! I love the way is all melts together on the warm toasted bread. I also love peanut butter w/bananas on TOAST (yes, with that butter underneath). Mmmmmm. That sounds so good right now! Alas, that is no longer on my edibles list. Okay, well, maybe just a little, and just once! Thanks, Carol!

    Interesting…I just finished munching a crunchy peanut butter and cherry jam slice of bread. Barry’s the fan of crunchy. I could take either way. Hope the wildfires don’t get any closer to you guys.
