This morning started with some sunshine after a night of rain, but the clouds have moved in again, so it seems a good time to share some more of my world, with questions by Cee.
1. How many places have you lived? You can share the number of physical residences and/or the number of cities. Oh gosh. Since during most of my school years I attended between 4 and 8 different schools in different cities and often different states, I haven’t got a clue. I might be able to account for adult years, during which I’ve lived in Minot, ND; Kingston, NY; Newburgh, NY; Bloomington, NY; Walled Lake, MI; Willow Creek, PA; Lakewood, CA; Fountain Valley, CA; Santa Ana, CA; Westminster, CA; Tustin, CA and now here I am, in South Central, OR (outside of Chiloquin to be specific).
2. What type of music relaxes you the most? Most often when I play music I tend to tune it out, with something catching my attention every now and then. I think, like Chris, silence is most relaxing to me and most of my days at home silence is the background noise. I like being able to hear noises (okay, what did that cat knock down now?!) around me. I do enjoy music, and perhaps today I’ll connect my phone to the bluetooth speakers and listen to a random selection of music.
3. If you could instantly become fluent in another language, what would that language be and why? If I were able to instantly become fluent in a language, why couldn’t I instantly become fluent in several languages? What would I pick? Oh – maybe Spanish, Korean, where else would I like to go visit? Would that ability continue so I could become fluent in the language of whatever country I decided to go to?
4. If you could fly or breathe under water what would you prefer? Fly because although I think there is much underwater that I would like to explore, I need light and underwater becomes quite dim as you descend. Besides, if I could fly, I could easily get myself to those countries whose languages I have become fluent in. Being able to fly, to hover without being really noticeable would be as good as being a mouse in a corner, don’t you think?
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 good friends with whom I enjoyed a delicious meal on Easter, and with whom I am privileged to spend time when I choose.
This week coming, I am looking forward to the spring cleanup in the yard getting completed, the grass turning a brighter green and new things sprouting and preparing to bloom.
It rained overnight, with a bit of snow mixed in apparently, which provided an opportunity to capture raindrops on flowers,
as well as another little sparrow, this one a White-Crowned Sparrow, I believe.
Now how about taking a look at the other blogs that have shared their world!
