I have had a wordless week – trying to catch up with some of the pre-winter yard work – I have managed to cross off all items on my list, but I have also realized my list was woefully short and there is much more to do. Interspersed with the productive days have been tired, lazy days. But now it is time for another week of sharing, so I’ll dredge up some energy, some words and a couple of pictures.
1. Have you ever bungee jumped? If you haven’t, would you want to? No and no. There are a lot of things I would like to do, but I don’t do edges and I don’t do sudden jolts to my body. I think that eliminates bungee jumping.
2. For your computer Mac or Windows based computer? Desktop, laptop, Pad or other? All of the above? For years I have used a Windows based desktop, but when our newest, five-year-old desktop with Windows 7 started giving me problems, I went out and bought a Lenovo laptop. The laptop is nice, but I so hate Windows 8 that I’m wishing I’d gotten a Mac laptop. Except finding someone to work on it in this area is an issue. And then there’s the budget, which is not an Apple budget. I use my iPad which was given me by the kids for Christmas a couple of years ago most often, and go to the laptop only for things I can’t do on the iPad – like upload photos.
3. If you were instantly able to play one musical instrument perfectly that you never have played before, what would it be? A guitar. I would sit by a campfire, preferably on a beach, and play the guitar. Beautifully, effortlessly. My friends and passers by would be enthralled and we would have a grand sing-along.
4. Describe yourself in at least four uplifting words. This is hard. It is hard for me to vocalize uplifting words about myself. Weaknesses, that I can do in a minute. Good things seem like bragging, and I don’t want to give myself more credit than I am really due. But I’ll try. Okay, I’ll try! I am dependable, reliable. I am calm, most of the time, but when pushed too far, the calmness is replaced by loudness and fury. I am trustworthy, I try to see the good sides of all people, I will never betray a friend’s confidence. I am loyal, but not to be treated as a fool. I am intelligent, although I think my brain may have developed some leaks. I have more talent than some, not as much as others.
Now for those pictures – three that were taken this morning before the frost was off the pumpkin. Figuratively speaking.
