I missed last week – let’s blame it on too many trips to town, okay? On this cloudy,frosty morning, before I start washing the insides of some windows (I’m a pro at avoidance), I think I’ll share a little bit more with Cee and the rest of you.
1. What would you ask for if a genie granted you three wishes? Continued good health – can a genie give that? Sure, I think they can do anything, right? A travel budget, doesn’t need to be anything grand or elaborate. I’d ask for peace on earth, but I think that’s probably more than even a genie can do since no one can hear anything reasonable anymore. So, I guess I’ll go for happiness and safety for my Gep and my Kat.
2. What experiences are most meaningful to you? Those shared with loved ones – that glass of wine on the deck with my kids and my friends, listening to birdsong. Visits to new places, walks on the beach. My wake-up calls from Shasta, when she gives me kisses if I rub her belly before we get up. I’m pretty easy to please.
3. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A stewardess, but I grew too tall for the requirements then, so a secretary – because when I was growing up, those were the lofty goals women had. Besides being married and having kids, you know. But if I knew then what I know now. .
Complete this sentence: The best day of my life was…. I don’t think I can narrow it down to one day. There have been many excellent days – the days my kids were born, days I’ve spent with them when they were growing up and as adults – days with friends having new adventures. Quiet days in my warm home with my furry girls. Perhaps the very best day of my life is yet to come, it’s so hard to know. Every day that I awaken and get out of my bed has the potential to be a “best” day.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? Last week? Okay – time spent with friends, of course. Time spent in the yard, cleaning out flower beds. I’m looking forward to more of the same, to getting out of bed and being able to stay upright.
No photos this week, because this time of the year there is not a lot of change in my world. Although the daffodils are growing taller, and the Lenten Rose (Helleborus) is sending up new sprouts to bloom very soon. That’s what I’m looking forward to – spring!
