I am taking what I view as a well-deserved break to play with Cee’s Challenge, a slightly different take on sharing our worlds.
But first – the past few days have been busy – the last two with painting the walls in my dining area and morning room that were a dark cranberry red – they are now Sea Swan and Gulf Winds. That’s another story – perhaps tomorrow. The days before that were busy shopping – necessary shopping. For my new adventure in March. That’s also another story for another day.
And now, to Cee’s questions.
1. Do you recharge your energy by going out with friends for a good time or by spending with quiet time alone? I must have quiet time alone to recharge – I pull into myself, which sometimes creates misunderstandings, but it is something I have to do. When I am recharged, then I want to go out with friends. An uncharged me does not communicate.
2. What is the most number of blankets you’ve ever had on your bed? In the years that I can remember, two. Or a blanket and a quilt or bedspread. Now I have fleece sheets (heaven!) and a comforter and that is more than enough most nights. I like it cool when I sleep – I have my thermostat set for 55 at night. There may have been times in the past that is beyond my memory scope that I used more blankets. Possibly.
3. You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you never met. Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself? Those of you who are familiar with my answers know what’s coming on this one, don’t you? It depends (no surprises there!). It would depend on who the fascinating people are, my energy level, what else is going on, where the party was and what kind of party it appeared it would be. Not saying I’d wait to take the best offer, but I think if close friends were having something going on at the same time, I’d choose them over a world full of fascinating strangers.
4. Do you like talking to people on the phone? Or do you prefer voice mail or email? In distant past years, when I was in my teens and twenties, I spent a lot of time on the phone. But in my middle years, when I was an escrow professional, the eight hour official work days were spent on the phone for at least 95% of the time. Real work was done once the office closed and workdays were often 12-14 hours long. Plus some time on weekends. Those years burned my ears off and soured my attitude towards the telephone in any form. Now I only make calls if I absolutely must because there is no other way to take care of what needs to be done – Gracious One, you really need to decide texting is a good thing! So in answer to your question, I prefer email or text. Voice mail involves the phone.
No photos this week – see excuses above. Instead, I shall simply wish you enough.
