Time again for Cee’s challenge. I seem to be on a “post this on Wednesday” schedule of late.
1. Do you prefer shopping or going to a park? Occasionally I feel like shopping, when I can meander around and look at things that are fun to buy – which means it’s not grocery shopping day. But I am not really much of a shopper – I’d rather wander around a park or someplace outside with my camera. Grocery shopping is such a drag – I mean, we have to take items off the shelves, put them in a cart, take them out of the cart and put them on a conveyor belt and in some stores we have to then put them in bags, haul the bags to the car, haul the bags to the house, take things out of the bags and put them away. So many repetitive motions – doesn’t seem very efficient to me. Or fun.
2. If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why? Most days, something comfortable with a cushy sole. In the summer, a comfy sandal. In the cooler weather, a good sneaker. Occasionally though, it would be fun to be something feminine and pretty, something that would go to a nice party with friends, complimenting a sparkly dressy outfit. Something young and flirty. But not very often. Comfort reigns.
3. What’s the story behind a time when you got locked out? Years ago, I pulled in to a gas station to get gas, and while the car was filling I ran in to the ladies’ room. But I left my purse in the car, so I locked the doors. Makes sense, right? Uh huh. Until I came out and realized I’d left the keys in my purse inside the locked car. In this case, my saving grace – and another stupid move on my part – was that I’d left the sun roof open, so I was able to climb in and retrieve my keys. Of course, anyone could have done the very same thing. Brain on break.
4. Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts? With nuts. Nuts add that extra something to most foods. Some of my best friends are nuts.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? A nice long walk with Shasta girl, followed by a shorter walk with Bailey girl. Time with friends. Emails from my kids. Quiet time in the comfort of my home. In the week coming up? I’m looking forward to more of the same, rainy days to stay inside and read my books and comfort food. With some healthy food mixed in there.
