Share Your World – 2016 Week 45

I have had words tumbling about in my brain, looking for an escape – but the words are not happy words, they are words reflecting my mood – my doomsday mood – my fear of the direction this country is going. I’m pretty sure you all hear enough of that without listening to me too, and I think I need a diversion, so I shall play along with Cee.

Describe your own outlook on life in seven words or less. (NOTE: does not have to be a sentence.) Well, darn! These days, my outlook on life is fearful – fear of what might come, fear of what our society is becoming. Normally, my outlook on life is much happier – it is a life in which I have enough, I have family, I have friends, I have my furry girls, a roof over my head, sufficient food – I have a life of enough. I am hoping I will be able to say that a year from now.

Where do you like to vacation? Near water, especially the ocean, is my very favorite, but truly any place I am able to go for a vacation is a treat. Although I doubt I’d be thrilled with Siberia.

Candy factories (sweets or treats including chocolate) of the entire world have become one and will now be making only one kind of candy. Which kind, if you were calling the shots? Easy question! Chocolate, of course! Milk, dark, semi-sweet – anything but white. For some reason, white chocolate is not a choice I would make.

Complete this sentence: Something that anyone can do that will guarantee my smile is… Smile at me. Beyond that, a cute anything furry – which translates to pretty much anything furry, especially if it’s still a baby.

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 having survived the week without making enemies, or at least more than maybe one or two enemies. I am looking forward to Tuesday coming and going, and hoping for a future.

No photos today. Or maybe I should post one of our recent sunrise photos that I’ve already posted on Facebook but not on this blog. Something innocent, something beautiful, something without rancor in this world full of rancor. Let’s see what I can find.

    Carol, I am so glad you decided to share with us today. All will be well. Enjoy your weather and sunrises and sunsets. We’ve had some spectacular ones lately.

    A lovely sunrise photo indeed. Hang on — Tuesday will come and go and perhaps then we’ll get some semblance of normal life back here.

    ps – I feel the same about white chocolate. Which would make one of the kids in my reading group shout out “That’s Racist!” because he’s all about, oh, I don’t even know….not using the words “black” or “white” in any context whatsoever, I suppose. 🙂

    Chocolate for me too. Couple it with a glass (or many) of wine. You’ll need it by the time the election ends and results are out.

  4. One more day and this will all be over. Our fears will either be founded or not. Let’s hold our breath and hope not.

  6. Normally I would be with you on the “white chocolate” issue. However, I recently had a piece of white chocolate mint that was mouth-wateringly exquisite!

    “white chocolate” isn’t real chocolate… it’s just cocoa butter, sugar and misc. not an iota of actual cocoa powder in it. i loved it as a kid; don’t like it now.
    for better or worse: SUPER TUESDAY IS ALMOST OVER!!

    I’d love to give you a smile and a hug….and some chocolate. 🙂 We converse on FB but my apologies for being absent here. I love your sunrise shots. They start my day off on a high note. And, fur babies will always bring a smile to my face as well. Take care, my friend. Only time will tell whether the election’s outcome will have positive results. But, for the foreseeable future, there are many who will be unable to look objectively at what’s happened. xoxo

    How about cute, furry things carrying things? Anytime our cats would carry their milk-jug rings in their mouths was over-the-top cute. And what about a dog with a stick or ball? Too cute. Today a squirrel came down the sidewalk towards us with an apple core (I think) in its mouth. Way too cute. Smiles all around!
