This week is nearly at an end already – and I am just now getting ready to Share My World. Better late than never, maybe.
1. Where did you live at age five? Is it the same place or town you live now? When I was five, we lived in Arnegard, North Dakota. We left there soon after and started our lives as nomads when my dad became a construction worker. I have lived many, many places since then.
2. 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? It would depend – on my mood, on who was going to be there, how much I felt like going out and mingling with those people. I would be more likely to go if there was at least one person I knew and liked that would be there. I have my hermit times, you know.
3. Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it? I grew up in mostly smaller towns. Some very small, some not as small, some on the outskirts of big cities. I prefer smaller towns really. When I was a kid what I liked was having lots of outdoor space for roaming, and if we could be on a body of water I was happiest. Hmmm, really not much has changed about my preferences.
4. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? The first thing I remember wanting to be was a stewardess. It seemed such an exciting, glamorous job. I grew too tall for the regulations then, however, so I didn’t do that. Now I think I’m glad I didn’t. Not sure I’d do well at what they have to do, which seems less glamorous and a lot more drudgery now than it did when I was a kid.
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 a dinner with friends, quiet time with my furry girls, being free to make my own choices. I am looking forward to – some walks with Shasta while Bailey stays home and rests, time with friends on Super Bowl Sunday, standing upright each morning.
Shasta and I did go on one walk this past week – we headed to the wetlands on a chilly, dreary day.
On this day, the world was primarily browns and grays. We saw a goose off in the distance and heard more geese and some ducks, but most of our water birds go to warmer climes for the winter. Even in browns and grays, there is beauty.
