Share Your World – October 2, 2017

On this bright, sunny morning, what better thing could I do than sit and share more of my world? Especially since it’s too cold in this sunny morning to go do what I should do outside.

If you were given the opportunity to ride in a helicopter would go? Yes. I would like to do that, just as I would like to go up in a hot air balloon. New experiences are often good.

What are some of your favorite type of proteins to eat? (meat, seafood, eggs, soy, cheese, nuts) I think the proteins I eat most often are cheeses, beans, eggs – although eggs are less frequent than the other two. I don’t like to eat a lot of meat, and if I have meat in my meal at all, it’s always a small portion. Seafood – sometimes, but I don’t like fishy anything. Shrimp sometimes call me although the price of it usually means I’ll buy a bagged, prepared shrimp meal instead of making my own. But I’m a lazy cook.

What would be your preference, awake before dawn, at dawn, or awake before noon? Waking at dawn is good, although it’s a pleasure to sleep a little later occasionally. My furry girls, however, think right before dawn or at dawn is the best time. In my much younger days, I liked to stay up into the wee hours on weekends (when the next day was not a workday) and sleep late in the mornings. That doesn’t happen now – in large part because I can’t stay awake very late.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. A trip to Costco inspired me to buy some of their prepared, refrigerated, no preservatives meals. Is that real inspiration? The news events inspired me to want a new world to live in. Sorry, friends, I’m having trouble with inspiration these days. Just wait till we’ve had a month of gray skies, snow, and really cold – won’t I be great fun then?!

In the meantime, a critter update. I think my chipmunk friend did go out the door I left open after I saw him run across this room, because there’s been no further sign of him. Critters, yes, but they’ve turned out to be mice – I managed to capture one in the live trap, and as I let him loose in the yard thought about how that might be a really bad idea. Then I went through some days of critters eating the bait I put in the live trap, but not triggering the door. Sigh. Time to get serious, and deadly. I bought a couple of mouse traps, the unkind type, and last night caught three mice. I’m hoping that’s all. The cold weather has made them search for and find a way into my house, apparently. I hope they get the notice, that I’m done fooling around now.

And in a more uplifting mood – a couple of this week’s inks: Ghost Trees.

    Oh for sure I’d ride in a helicopter if one was available and affordable. I’ve always wanted a ride in one. Favorite type of protein? Cheese for sure. But lately there’s been very little of that and it’s mostly been beans. Sigh. I’d love to wake up at dawn, but like you I have a pupster that thinks hours before dawn are the best time to get up. Double sigh.

    I think that good meals qualify as inspiration. I mean, we gotta look on the bright side wherever and whenever we find it– considering the world we’re living in now.

    I was able to take a helo ride decades ago when Entrepreneur and I went to Hawaii. It was such a thrill. Answer to the second question: CHEESE!!!!!!!! “nuff said. And, before noon covers a lot of hours, so I’d pick that one just to cover all bases. πŸ™‚ Your ghostly trees are so very Halloweenie!

    lol at the wake up options… I prefer to wake up somewhere between 1p and sunset, depending on the day

    I’ve lost all inspiration… literally sleeping nearly all the time, barely forcing myself to do required chores and errands.2 weeks of allergy itching hasn’t helped. I thought I was finally done with that but literally just noticed my hands and arms are covered in rash again and my stomach pains are back. i’ll prob wait a few min then medicate myself into a coma for the day (it’s 10a and I haven’t been to sleep yet because I just woke up 16 hrs ago [6pm Sun]),
