Somehow another week has passed – and the world survived. My foot is improving, and I have hopes that it will be “normal” by the time I head out of town next week. In the meantime, before I must prepare myself for a trip to town – because my body deserves a massage – I want to share with Cee, and all of you, one more time.
Would you rather live where it is always hot or always cold? I know I am not the first to say this, but I would prefer moderation. I do not like extremes in much of anything, but certainly not in weather. Mid 70s to 80s works fine with me, although I don’t mind 50s and 60s for short periods of time. I could probably deal with a one-month long winter with cold temperatures – after that, it’s outstaying its welcome.
Do you prefer long hair or short hair for yourself? I prefer short hair for myself. However, my hair has never returned to the thick, coarse texture of pre-chemotherapy, and I am most unhappy with the thin, fine hair I’ve got now. Although I guess I should be glad I have hair at all.
What is your favorite month of the year? Probably May – depending on when spring decides to show up where I live. And October – again depending on when fall decides to appear. Some years it could be September. I can never decide whether my favorite season is spring or fall, because by the time each rolls around I am grateful. Spring, because it means the end of winter, and fall because it means the end of yard work.
What is the easiest way for your to learn something new? By reading, by seeing and doing, in a classroom? I am a follower of instructions, although once instructions have been read, I need to do it myself to really learn it. Whenever something new crops up that I decide I want to learn, I immerse myself completely. Although I am a half-way person when it comes to chores (like housework and yard work), I am definitely not halfway on things that really interest me.
Optional 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 the improvement in my stupid twisted foot that has occurred during this past week. I am grateful for the sunny days. I am grateful for the arrival of our summer birds and flowering plants. I would be grateful for grass that would grow to a length chosen by me, then just stay there. In this week that has now arrived, I look forward to more sunny skies, getting the phlox plants I ordered and the crocosmia gifted to me in the ground, and life to continue peacefully.
That’s it for now. I wish you all enough of everything.
