A couple of days late, but before week 4 arrives, so here we go again – answering, or trying to answer, the questions Cee poses. Several of you are able to be so concise with your responses, and in many ways I envy that. I doubt I shall ever be concise and clear – it simply is not my way. So let’s see what I do this week.
1. In what do you find the simplest of joys? I think a couple of you may have summed this up very well already (although I’ve read few responses so far) – the song of the bird outside my windows, the antics of and kisses from my furry girls including those little chin nips that Twiggy gives, the sunrise and sunset, the glistening of the grass when kissed by frost, the early morning and evening light – I could go on and on. The bigger joy of course is my privilege of being able to see and hear those things.
2. Jello or Pudding? And what is your favorite flavor? Pudding, chocolate. But I do love some jellos with yummy fresh fruits in them, and I found one recipe awhile back that is jello blended with cranberries and I think maybe some Cool Whip or yogurt that was heaven.
3. Is there a language you would like to learn? In my younger days, I yearned to learn French – it seemed to be the language of love. I started a course in high school, but that only lasted a week because the teacher seemed to imbibe a bit too much and his idea of teaching was to hand out French newspapers and leave it at that – so here we are, beginning French students with no clue, staring at newspapers written in an unintelligible language. That just didn’t work for me. Now? I don’t know – it would be perfect to know enough of several languages to communicate adequately when visiting those countries, but that is a far-away dream. Both the learning the languages and the wish to visit several countries. Perhaps I’ll just rely on a language converter app if I am able to go far-away places.
4. Do you prefer juice or fruit? I think fruit. I am not much for fruity juices, but I do love the tang of a fresh tangerine, the smoothness of a good banana, the tarty sweetness of fresh berries, melon – oh melon! I drool over cantaloupe and some of the more exotic melons although I am not a huge fan of watermelon.
I think that does it for me for today. No photos my friends – this is being a busy week, what with having to replace a washer and dryer – mixed emotions there – I’d rather spend that money on a trip to somewhere, but yet having new more sophisticated laundry facilities is exciting – as well as treating myself to the pleasures of pretty fingernails and a massage (okay, taking advantage of friends who have gifted me these things) and there is the necessary buying of groceries and paint to paint a couple of walls. Pictures will come again another day.
