It is a sunny morning with a promise of another hot day – which means I will mostly stay inside where it is cooler. What better thing to do when staying inside then do a blog post, right? And Cee has offered the chance to share a bit more of my world.
1. In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger? That would depend on who I’m in the car with. Husband always made me tense because I felt he followed other cars too closely. I’m a bit of a control freak, so generally I’d rather drive, but with any of the neighborhood girls I’m fine as a passenger.
2. If you were handed free opera tickets, would you go or sell them? Why? I would go. I think. Because I’ve never been, and everyone should experience as many things as possible in a life. Good things, that is. Having gone once, I could make an informed decision as to whether I would go again.
3. Describe your own outlook on life in seven words or less. (NOTE: does not necessarily have to be a sentence.) Oh. Testing me, are you? I guess it would be “Make the most of it”. I could add “Live everyday as if it could be your last”, but I don’t do that myself, being the queen of procrastination. Besides, that would take me over the seven words. Or I could say, “laugh, love, see, hear, smell, feel”. Be with it, be aware of it. This could grow into a very long paragraph, so I’ll stop now.
4. Which would you prefer: a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks; or a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood? I think I would go for the “contented bordering on (or really being) happy, secure, predictable. . .” . It could have some swings of fortune and mood, since you just said “without such wide swings”, which would break things up a bit but not cause too much drama. Don’t need drama.
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 friends returning to our neighborhood from their travels. I am grateful for the chance to go out to dinner with a friend the other night and have some good conversation and food. I am looking forward to life being as it is in the coming week, to the quiet, the time on the deck, just being.
As you know, I cannot do a post without photos, so here’s what’s blooming in my yard this week.
