I’m resisting doing the housework that is crying for attention this morning. I think I’d much rather join Cee in sharing, so dust, you can just get a little bit deeper. I’ll get to you – later.
1. What was your favorite subject in school? I think it was probably English. I liked math, until I hit algebra and my brain and algebra did not get along well at all. One year because of our moves from one place to another, I got the same section in science book four times – a section on astronomy and I liked that. Did well in it too – four times makes it easy.
2. “Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away” (George Carlin). When have you had such a moment? Oh, lots of times, the most important of which would have been the first time I held each of my children in my arms. Many times when I would come upon a landscape that was breathtaking; the green growth that pops from the earth after a cold, white winter; watching one of my mama cats give birth to her litter. I think too many moments to even try to list.
3. What’s your choice: jigsaw, crossword, or numeric puzzles? Jigsaw or crossword. Jigsaw puzzles don’t happen much nowadays, what with having a Lily cat. And then there’s the Twiggy, who too often goes on a tear for no discernible reason. With me, all things come in spurts and stages, and right now I am not in a jigsaw stage. I do have a crossword puzzle app on my iPad though.
4. If you found an obviously abandoned car with $50,000 in the back seat, what would you do? I would like to say I’m honorable and would turn it in – but how would the police ever really know who it belonged to? $50,000 would give me so much freedom and the ability to give gifts when I saw a perfect opportunity – so although I think you do not know what you would really do until it happens, I suspect I’d keep it.
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 having had the opportunity to visit The Artistic One and my brother and sis-in-law, and for getting home safely, seeing my friends here and having breakfast with the neighborhood “girls” the other morning. I am looking forward to sunshine, more greening of the grass and plants popping out of the ground. I am looking forward to our current cold front moving on. Soon.
A few scenes from Santa Fe now, first on the Plaza:
For each and every one of you, thank you for being bloggy friends. I wish you a day, a week, a month, a life of enough.
