I had in mind a couple of other topics for a post today, but going through my mail realized it was time for Cee’s challenge again. The other topics will wait, as I try my best to respond to Cee’s questions.
1. If you could go back and visit any time period, what time would you travel to and why? Great way to start! I have no answer. I’m not sure I’d like to go back to visit any time period – unless maybe I could go back to when my mother was a young woman, before she married, and spy on what her life was like then. I have a few pictures of her from that time, and a couple of them show what appears to be a close relationship with a young man – not my father. I would like to know more about him, and what happened between them. I’d also like to know if she was happy then.
2. If you could have three wishes granted for you alone, what would they be? This is a time for you to dream and have fun. Wow! Three wishes, just for me? Okay, here goes. Keep in mind I am being entirely selfish here.
A silent benefactor who would like to provide a travel opportunity once a year, all expenses paid. Like a blank check to go where I want to go. This would have to include an amazing trustworthy house/dog/cat sitter.
A new car of my choice, complete with paid insurance and free gas for a year.
A gardener to come in and take care of the yard once a week. In the winters, he could come in and shovel snow as needed.
3. Wanting something to quench your thirst, what would you drink? It depends. Most often, a glass of ice cold water, but late in the afternoon on warm days, a cold beer, preferably dark, is special.
4. If you watch TV what are your favorite three television shows? There are not very many shows I watch with any regularity, so this is an easy one. American Idol, The Voice and Dancing With the Stars. Otherwise, I watch HGTV a lot, house hunting is good. Food Network has Chopped, that’s interesting. But those are just when I feel like it things to watch.
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 opportunity to shop some plant sales for tomatoes and strawberries to grow in my earth boxes and pretty flowers and herbs for my outdoor pots. I am looking forward to more food adventures – learning more about eating a PH balancing diet for me and my girls.
There are more things blooming in my yard this spring, and I’d like to share them with you. The first is the last of the daffodils, this pretty peachy pink-cupped variety.
The pink and white crabapple trees are in full bloom, preceding their production of berries for the birds.
and the far too prevalent Creosote Bush, also known as Greaseplant, that invades our properties but also provides the most gentle sweet scent when it blooms in the spring.
I wish you all days filled with enough.
