It seems I have not had words to share lately. A bit of a dry spell I guess, and there have been other things (like yard work) requiring my attention, although even that hasn’t been getting a lot of attention from me. Today is an off and on rain showers day, so it seemed like a good time to try sharing with Cee, and all of you, one more time.
What’s your strongest sense? Maybe sight, maybe touch. I don’t have a very good sense of smell, and my taste buds are not especially particular – unless I eat something that offends them, then they can become downright irritable. There are many things that must pass the touch test before I buy – a certain degree of softness is required in fabrics. And colors are important to me, which would be sight.
Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey) Today would be a lot of Sleepy and a bit of Grumpy. My old furry girl had a bad night so there wasn’t a lot of sleeping for me – which leaves me sleepy and a bit grumpy. But also sad, because I can’t do much more than I am doing for her. Her arthritic joints make life difficult often times.
If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what age would that be? Not sure, because every age has had some good and some not so good. Maybe 50 or 55 – I still had energy then, but had mellowed enough that life wasn’t as full of drama as it was when I was younger. I can tell you this – getting old is not the most fun in the world. Those golden years often seem as those they were simply gold-plated and tarnished.
List of Jobs You Think You Might Enjoy: Even if you aren’t thinking about a career change, it can be fun to think of other jobs you might enjoy. [Remember: This is SYW where even your dreams can become reality.] Testing mattresses would seem to be ideal, at least today. I really liked working as an escrow officer, although the stress sometimes was overwhelming. If I had it to do all over again, I’m not sure what I’d choose. I could say artist or writer, but to me those things are more pleasure than job and I’m not sure I’d want to make them a job.
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, as always, grateful for each new day, for my friends and my family, for my furry girls, for the ability to use my day the way I want to. I am looking forward to more of the same.
No photos today, no paintings – I haven’t touched my inks for a month, but perhaps that will change today. I guess when no words want to be shared, my creativity goes away – they must be connected. Niece Lisa, if you’re reading this, I haven’t forgotten your request.
