Cee has shared the poll results and posted her questions for this week.
1. What’s your favorite charitable cause and why? Anything for research into children’s cancer. I set up my Amazon Smile account for St. Jude’s figuring every little bit helps. My second favorite would be research into Alzheimer’s Disease – that is one scary thing! Then there’s my depleted travel fund . . .
2. What color do you feel most comfortable wearing? Oh gosh, another of those “it depends” questions. It does – depend – you know. On my mood, mostly. I wear almost every color, but I think blues of all shades to purples of all shades are my favorites – although I seem to have an awful lot of fuchsia in the closet now. Maybe that’s because that’s one of the colors most prevalent in the stores I go to. Or has been when I’ve been shopping.
3. If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? (guest can be dead, alive, famous or someone you just know) First Anna Quindlen I think. I used to love her Newsweek column and I’ve read every book she’s read as far as I know. Can I invite the whole house of Congress, so I can ask them what the heck they’re thinking – or maybe I should ask if they are thinking. My mother, so she can tell me more about her life as a young girl, as a woman, wife, mother – was her life what she wanted? Give me a list – because I’m certain later I will think of people who are not coming to mind now.
List: What are at least five places you’ve enjoyed visiting? That would probably be most of the places I’ve visited. There are few places I’ve been that I didn’t enjoy to some extent. New York City was exciting but I wouldn’t want to live there. Poland was very interesting. The Oregon coast is one of my most favorite places to visit. Portland, Oregon, is a fascinating city and one in which I could probably live if I were to live in a city although I don’t care for that much rain. Seoul and Beijing were interesting. Costa Rica – I could go see more of that country. Then again, I could go see more of lots of the places I’ve visited.
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 my human friends, my furry girls, the fact that both Gep and Kat landed on U.S. soil safely, food in my fridge and a roof over my head, birds that share their songs with me, the jack rabbit that drives Shasta crazy and that I find entertaining, each breath I take. I’m looking forward to more birdsong, more furry girl kisses, sitting on my front deck late afternoon with a cold beer, waking each morning. Is this all just too Pollyanna? Getting my new dishwasher delivered – one that is not damaged this time – and installed.
