Share Your World – 2015 Week 41

It’s Monday, and I know this because Cee has issued her challenge for us all to share our worlds. I have been suffering from blank mind lately, so we’ll see how this goes.

1. What genre of music do you like? I like pop, country, blues – it might be easier to say what I don’t like. I don’t like heavy metal or much of the loud rock music. I want music to make me feel good, not assault my ears. I have a lot of music on CDs and my phone, but I don’t listen to it very often because I also like the music in silence.

2. What is the worst thing you ate this last week? I’ve been wanting comfort food lately and have not been nearly as attentive to making sure I’m eating a veggie-heavy diet. I think that goes along with my somewhat restless, somewhat dissatisfied mood. What that means is I probably have eaten more than one bad (as in health-wise) thing this past week – but I’m going to give top billing to the Kraft mac and cheese in a box that I had with – drum roll here – hot dogs! Does the cole slaw I made to go with that help any at all?

3. Would you like to be famous? In what way? Not really. I would like to be remembered by those who know me as reasonable, thoughtful, a good friend, a good person.

Complete this sentence: This sandwich could really use some … fresh tomato slices. I am not the least bit imaginative about sandwiches and my nearly-every-day lunch is usually on toasted whole grain bread, with mayo, turkey, slices of tomato and fresh spinach. I eat ham occasionally, but not often – I don’t care for roast beef on sandwiches, except for an Arby’s Cheddar Beef with Horsey sauce. Mustard only belongs on hot dogs. I put horseradish in sauces for thing like potato salad, but not on my sandwich (unless I’m at Arby’s) – but maybe I should try that, Cee.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I’ve been having an issue with gratitude lately – I’m blaming it on the news, which teems with bad stuff going on. The world doesn’t seem to have much laughter in it these days, or at least not that we hear about. Then last night I heard that there will be no cost-of-living increase in Social Security for 2016 – yet I see my cost-of-living going up every time I go buy groceries.
Yet I do have things to be grateful for, despite my out-of-focus view lately. I am grateful for the lovely fall we’ve been having, I am grateful for the comfortable home I live in, for my furry girls, for my children who have grown into responsible adults, for my friends. I am looking forward to getting my mojo back and finding happiness in raking pine needles.

Today’s photos have a theme – details. It’s all in the details.






Here’s to a week filled with enough for all of us.

    The sounds of silence are pleasing to the ear. Food choices–the cole slaw makes up for the rest. πŸ˜‰ You are so hard on mustard! LOL I like Dijon and white cheddar melted on turkey–and a good grainy bread. I quit reading the news headlines on my iPad. Now I have more time to blog–and a better frame of mind! I get enough news when hubby comes home and turns on the TV. Lately, it’s all politics, anyway.

    I like your answers to #1. Silence really can be a type of music. You have shared some beautiful macro shots!

    Hi Carol, it is all in the details. I will admit I actually had hot dogs last week too. Didn’t have the blue box Mac and Cheese though. Although that has been on my mind lately too. πŸ˜€

  5. I like your detail photos – especially the squirrel ones.
    I know what you mean about wanting comfort food lately – it’s the same with me, but I am putting it down to the change in the weather. It is definitely cooler and more autumnal here now.

    Love your close up shots! The kitty ear is fabulous. I like most every genre of music except hard, metal rock or twangy county. I listen to classical when stressed. I’d like to be remembered as one who helped others be the best they could be. And all sandwiches can be improved by putting some red, bell peppers on it (except maybe chicken salad.) πŸ™‚ Hope you’re having a great week, my friend.

I'd love to hear from you!
