Share Your World – 2016 Week 16

Lately I’ve been very “here today, not tomorrow” about sharing my world, but today it seems like a good idea, so here I go.

1. If you had to have your vision corrected would you rather: glasses or contacts? Or what do you use if you need to have your vision corrected? Years ago, I wore contacts for awhile, but, like Cee, I have astigmatism and they weren’t a perfect solution. I could not wear them to drive at night and finally they seemed more nuisance than anything – the removing, cleaning, reinserting, so I went back to glasses. They aren’t a perfect solution either, because they bother the bridge of my nose sometimes, especially when my sinus are misbehaving.

2. If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be? Some days, I would be a traffic signal on the fritz, constantly blinking in a series of green, yellow, red, back and forth, up and down. I get started, then I get distracted, then I come to a complete halt. Lately, maybe one of those intersection signs – where it shows crossroads – would be appropriate. I’m feeling the desire for change, for adventure. Yet, I’m not sure I want change or adventure. Hopefully our Girls’ Week at the coast the first week of May will quiet my discontent.

3. Was school easy or difficult for you? How so? School itself was not difficult for me – unless we get into the subject of algebra. What was difficult was so frequently being the new kid on the block, because I was shy and awkward.

4. Would you rather take a 1 or 2 week vaction with an organized tour or take a cruise of your choice? This is a tough one. What I would prefer is to take a vacation with a rental car in the British Isles, then maybe wander over into Europe and go where the whim takes me. But – given the choices of an organized tour or a cruise – either of those would be good for starters, because either of those would point out places I’d like to explore more thoroughly. The tour would take me to those places I’d later rent a car and visit on my own – with a friend to share with, of course. The cruise I’d select would be a Mediterranean cruise, which would have to include some of the Greek Isles. Not sure two weeks would be enough, however.

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 that spring has arrived, that our one snowy day in this past week proved to me that anymore tantrums Old Man Winter chooses to throw will be short-lived, that the sun shines warmth on my back. I am grateful that I have been awaking and able to get out of bed to enjoy these things. I am looking forward to more of the same.

And because I must, to satisfy me, a couple of pictures – random pictures, taken because I felt like it.

    May is not too far away. Your girls week always cheers you up. It was a hard winter. The weather really wasn’t that cold, but it was long and wet. Maybe you just need a little more sun. 😀 Loved your pictures.

    Your here today/gone tomorrow blogging has still been much more consistant than me this year! I’m inspired by you and other blogging friends as I read and comment and blog posts form in my head, but that’s where they stay most of the time. I enjoy your observations and photos!

    It seems like you’re blogging rather regularly to me. ha ha! I used to wear contacts as a young one for a while, but reverted back to glasses for a similar reason. And then a doctor said I could have gone blind if I’d continued wearing them–wow, what a lot of drama–so it seemed like a sensible choice.

    I could never adjust to contacts. My eyes always felt like I had just stayed up for 24 hours. So I wear glasses sometimes. I’m fortunate not to need much correction, though I am sure that will change in a few years as my vision will surely change.
    I think I would just save up a bit longer and go on a vacation where I was in charge. I have never opted for a cruise or a group-tour thing, so I think that’s what I’ll continue to stick with. I think it’s the American-individual in me 😉

I'd love to hear from you!
