Share Your World – August 14, 2017

It’s a sunny, cool morning, with a cloudless sky and a predicted temperature of the upper 70s, pretty much my idea of perfect weather. While I dawdle about this morning, delaying the fulfillment of the promise I made to myself to do some outside work today, I’m going to join in on Cee’s challenge to share.

When you leave a room, do you turn the lights off behind you or keep the lights on throughout your house most of the time? I almost always turn the lights off, unless I know I am going to go right back to that room – or, as a reminder that I need to pay attention to something in that room – like the utility room when I expect the washer or dryer to chime in just a few minutes, but I have TV on and won’t hear the chime.

What do you feel is the most enjoyable way to spend $500? I would say a trip to the coast with friends or Gep and Kat, listening to the waves strike the shoreline, walking on the beach, eating out. I suspect it would cost more than that $500, but that’s fine – that would be my favorite way to spend any dollars.

Complete this sentence: My favorite thing to do on my cell phone is… Get answers to questions that absolutely cannot wait, like whether both the male and female robins care for their nestlings – you know, really important stuff like that. And sending texts. I am not a “phone person”, and usually find I have nothing to say when on a phone call, or I say what I have to say and am ready to hang up now, thank you. Too many years of too many hours in a day on the phone when I was working. I do use my phone camera more than my regular camera now too. I guess my favorite things to do with my cell phone is everything but the phone part.

What inspired you this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. In this case, the inspiration was not something uplifting or enlightening, but my shock and awe (as one way of putting it) at the antics/lack of governing I see in the government these days, and the despicable end results of violence the words that are spoken by a person who should know better foment. That “inspired” my last blog post.

On a lighter note, while I mowed the lawn on Sunday, I noted that Mother Nature is prepping her handiwork for its fall displays – the setting of Maple seed pods and berries on the Juniper and Crabapple trees.

    I love texting! That is how my son and I stay in touch. No gaps in the conversation that way. When we’re done talking–we’re done. Your response to this made me smile.

  4. My best friend was the last person I know to get a cell phone and then years later the last to get a smart phone. But she uses that thing ALL the time…you find out all that important stuff we need to know right now.

    I know Autumn is right around the corner, but I don’t feel like we’ve had much of a summer here. Your answer to the phone question made me giggle. It’s amazing all the things we do with smartphones now…..actually making calls are waaaayyyyy down on the list! It’s a rainy day here today. Daytime temps are back up to where they should be, but the nights are a bit too cool for August! xoxo

    I often say that I want a phone that can do everything but take calls. I love the new MotoZ (??) with it’s add-on HD camera, and projector, and lord knows what other crap… but I think it only works on Verizon and I’ll never use them again.

    I also turn off lights unless I have something cooling on the stove, in which case I leave the little stove light on to remind me to put it away before I go back to bed.

    GORGEOUS weather down here today… felt like October.

    I think we use lights the same way. I don’t tend to leave lights on at all, but Tony uses the light-on-as-reminder trick. I’m surprised at how many people just leave the lights on.

I'd love to hear from you!
