Another week, time to share with Cee.
1. If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be? “Bump”. Oregon seems to have a penchant for using as few words as possible in their road signs, and husband and I used to laugh about it as we drove along the roads. “Congestion” and “Bump” were two of our favorites, so I guess I would say “Bump” would be descriptive about most days because there are always bumps. It would be boring if it was all smooth sailing, wouldn’t it?
2. Is your hair short (total neck and ear showing), medium (covering ears and neck), long (below shoulders), extra long (at least halfway down your back) or bald? Short, with not a lot of choices since I had chemotherapy over five years ago and the hair just never came back the way it was. I must confess, however, that even if I had hair like I used to, it would be short. I prefer it that way and I am not one for spending much time fussing with it.
3. When you are with your friends, do your interactions include much touching—for example, hugging, kissing, rough housing, rubbing backs? Would you like to have more of this? (Note: the answers may vary depending on where you live on this wonderful planet.) My family was not one for being touchy-feely, so hugs and touches do not come naturally to me. My friends now are more that way, so greetings and see-you-laters are often accompanied by a hug – which I enjoy. Sometimes touches to the arm when we talk – that human contact that reaffirms the emotional contact.
4. What do you feel is the most enjoyable way to spend $100? I think an afternoon or evening out with friends. Maybe a movie, maybe just a meal, maybe shopping.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I am grateful for the support and help of friends as I dealt with the old van needing a doctor/get a newer car decision. I am looking forward to another week of working in the yard and spending time with those friends and my furry girls.
And now, because I can, a few pictures taken as I wandered about the yard just outside my door this morning. The purples first.
