Share Your World – 2014 Week 36

Week 36?! That means there’s only 16 more weeks in this year, doesn’t it? Can that possibly be? Didn’t 2014 just begin a couple of days ago?

Rhetorical questions, those. I do not like how quickly time is passing, and it is passing so quickly that if I do not sit down right now and play with Cee’s challenge it will be week 37 and I will be behind. Again. Or still, perhaps.

1. Do you prefer reading coffee table books (picture), biographies, fiction, non-fiction, educational? I would like to tell you that I prefer non-fiction and educational books, because that would make me seem so intellectual, so thoughtful – but that would be a lie. I read primarily for pleasure, therefore I prefer fiction and sometimes a biography. Reading and TV are much the same for me – a bit of escape, time to be mindless and lose myself in another world.

2. What is your biggest fear or phobia? (no photos please) Edges. Without a doubt, edges. I’ll not post a photo here, but wasn’t that recently covered by Ailsa?

3. What is your favorite cheese? Cheese. Almost any cheese, as long as it can get past my nose (Limburger, you need not apply). I usually buy Muenster for sandwiches, sometimes Havarti. Occasionally Provolone. Then there’s Feta or Gorgonzola for on salads and some main dishes – Mozzarella, Cheddar, Goat Cheese. . . you get the idea, right?

4. What is your favorite month of the year? It’s a toss up – either September or whatever month spring decides to arrive here, which is usually May or June. I also like October – really, it would be easier to tell you my least favorite month which is February. That’s the month cabin fever inevitably sets in.

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 have days in a row with no real obligations, to do only those things I feel a need or strong desire to do. I look forward to the fall days that will be the next week, with time to relax, to be a little bit productive – but not tooo productive, you understand.

A few photos now – more from the day trip The Artistic One and I made, what? 2 weeks ago? Something like that.

A spot of sunshine in the dark of the forest.

The rushing river will always find its way.



The fallen supporting new life.

  1. I love the moss on your photos and I also hate February.

    Everything is better topped with cheese, or chocolate!
    Love those river photos!


  3. Cee Neuner says:

    I do love Oregon moss…. Great answers. Havarti is great on sandwiches. I get that whenever I can. Thanks for sharing.


  4. pattisj says:

    Nice nature shots. I’m with you on cheese!


  5. Heather says:

    Cheese! Yes. Except I do like bleu cheese…
    Can we just pick least favorite months? They’re all my favorite except right before winter arrives and when it refuses to leave.
    Your river photos look like an enchanted wonderland. Lovely!


  6. I adore cheese too, and October! And I love to read fiction or travelogues.
    Your roaring river pictures are fabulous, Carol. I’m looking forward to seeing your fall from afar, Carol, as it’s in the subtropics here in Nanning, and it won’t be cooler until at least November. 🙂

    I love your pics of flowing water ~ in Asia, Water ć°´ forms 50% of Feng Shui or “Wind Water” & it’s magnetic flow can just be felt in our pics. Beautiful.


  8. Carol — I always enjoy your photography. My favorite month flows over two: late Sept/early Oct.


  9. What beautiful photos at the end of this piece. I had forgotten about salad cheeses like Feta. I really like smoked goat cheese.


  10. Karma says:

    Now you’ve got me craving some cheese, lol! February is rather dreadful, but at least it is short! Looks like you had a great day trip.


  11. lisa says:

    Love the photos! You and Robin are the only two I know who like Muenster cheese! Me? I’m a sharp cheddar girl if I have a choice. Provolone and Feta and also in the running. Not afraid of a lot….mainly losing those I love in an accident or to a devastating disease. I’d love to experience days of no obligations…just for a little while!


  12. Robin says:

    Cheese!! Cheese is the reason I can’t take my vegetarian lifestyle a step further and become a vegan. I love cheese too much to give it up. Muenster, Provolone, Feta, Swiss, Gouda…so much cheesy goodness. lol! February is a terrible month. I wonder if we’d like it better if we renamed it? Probably not, but might be worth a try. 🙂


  13. Kathy says:

    Like you, I’m looking forward to a week of no obligations (work doesn’t count, right? especially if they’re part-time jobs). Have been busy since mid-August so this feels like a good change. I also like this time of year. It can be so golden. Your photos of moss are gorgeous. Really beautiful.


I'd love to hear from you!
