Can anybody explain to me how Monday keeps getting here so quickly? Wasn’t it Thursday only yesterday? No? Well, fine then! When Cee says it’s Monday, then it must be Monday, so here I am, sharing more of my world.
1. Do you prefer to receive gifts or give them? I have a terrible time deciding what gifts to give to people, especially men. Men are so hard to buy for! When I buy gifts it’s usually because I really think the intended recipient will absolutely love it – then I spend the time between the purchase and the giving of the gift worrying about whether they will really like it. I like the fact that people care enough for me to give me gifts – and I believe gifts should only be given because you want to, not because you feel you should or must.
2. If you could be given ANY gift what would it be? Oh my – I already have the greatest gifts I could ever want – I have the love of my children and my friends. I have my friends willing to give their time and energy to stay with husband so I can go shopping. But if we’re talking material things, then I’d go for a two-month trip to tour Western Europe by car. With a friend. Or my kids. Just ambling here and there, wherever our hearts take us would be great!
3. If you had a shelf for your three most special possessions (not including photos, people or animals), what would you put on it? My camera. My iPad. My smart phone. None of the jewelry that means a lot, because I would be wearing that.
4. Would you spend the weekend in an abandoned house in the forest? I have never claimed to be unusually brave or adventurous, so it would depend a lot on how abandoned this house was. If it still had a source of heat, water and light, with a decent bed and blankets – oh yeah, some food would be good including some wine. And internet. I mean, if it’s more unoccupied than abandoned, I’d stay there. If it’s spooky creepy with cobwebs and spaces in the walls, floors or ceiling for things to come inside, I’d only stay there if I was stuck and the weather didn’t permit staying in a tent outside. Or my car. I’d have a car, wouldn’t I? I don’t require uber-comfort, but I do have standards. I’m not a cross-the-mountains-in-a-covered-wagon-in-the-middle-of-winter kind of person.
Now, the sunrise yesterday morning
Here’s to a day full of enough for each and every one of you.
