I’ve been sitting here at the computer, checking Facebook, reading and answering my mail, telling myself it’s time to get moving – after all, there are things to be done to prepare for my trip that begins tomorrow. Ahhh, yes, but just one more thing. . . so this final (maybe) thing before I get busy will be sharing with Cee for this second week of May.
When you’re alone at home, do you wear shoes, socks, slippers, or go barefoot? That depends on the temperature. In the cold of winter I usually have socks and warm slippers on. In the spring, I will usually wear just slippers, and when it warms up more to say, the mid 70s, sandals. On really warm days, I might go barefoot, but there will always be something with hard soles nearby in the event I have to go outside, where there is a lot of gravel.
What was your favorite food when you were a child? Mashed potatoes topped with butter and peas, or corn. Suspect that is still one of my favorite things to eat, although I have mashed potatoes less frequently now. I don’t need gravy and rarely make it.
Are you a listener or talker? Depends on the situation. In a group of people I’m comfortable with, probably a little of each, although sometimes I think I should listen more and talk less. With people I don’t know well, I’m more likely to be a listener. Most of the time. Just don’t push any of my buttons, because then I might say more than I should.
Favorite thing to (pick one): Photograph? Write? Or Cook? Oh gosh. Photograph or write. Although my photographing has taken back seat to painting of late – or maybe there’s just not been a lot to stir me to take pictures. Of the two, I doubt I could choose my most favorite.
What is the easiest way for your to learn something new? By reading, by seeing and doing, in a classroom? I am a written instruction person. I need to read, watch videos, then try it. Once I’ve read or watched the basics, I will go on my own and learn more by doing. When it comes to something like driving to a new place, if I’m a passenger I will not be able to tell you how we got there. In order to do that, I’d need to be the driver – with either a GPS giving instructions or written instructions (thank you Google maps) nearby for the first time or two.
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 few days we’ve had that felt like spring. I am less grateful for the pine cones that just keep falling from my trees. I am looking forward to the trip to visit a friend with another dear friend, and I am grateful for having a dog sitter for my furry girls.
