Somehow this week has gotten away from me – sleeping late, trip to town, trying to get a couple more winter preparation projects done while fall is still with us – and suddenly, it’s Wednesday! I’m late to Cee’s sharing party. Again!
Was school easy or difficult for you? How so? Insofar as school work goes, it was easy for me – until I hit algebra. Algebra was a “what the heck?” “Who needs this?” I have only known one person in my life who actually used algebra. The social aspect of school was not so easy – it was hard to really fit in when I might only be in that school for two or three months – sometimes less. Usually the people with whom I made friends were others who didn’t quite fit in.
List some of your favorite types of animals. Furry ones. Slippery ones, like dolphins. Dogs, cats of all sizes, giraffes, llamas (when they don’t spit at me), animals, large and small. My choice for pets, however, is pretty much limited to dogs and cats.
What is your favorite large city you have been to? What is the one thing you remember most? Ummm. Here comes another “it depends”. It depends on my favorite for what? If it were a large city I was actually going to live in, perhaps Portland, Oregon, downtown, because of it’s mass transportation system. For unique (to me) things to see, Beijing. For Dunkin’ Donuts and Starbucks that really felt out of place, Seoul, South Korea. For keeping me on my toes and alert to those around me, New York City – admittedly, this is based on a trip there many many years ago, when I was hunting for a book by Erich Fromm titled The Art of Loving – Bad thing to ask for around Times Square, at least at that time. I think each large city I’ve been to, including Los Angeles and Chicago, have had some charm to them, but I’m really not a city girl. Woman. Old Lady.
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. The return of some nice fall weather after a few days of cold winds and rain showers. The return of warmth has inspired me to get to it, to actually finish the necessary winter preparation chores. Especially since a look at the bank account has reminded me I cannot take off to warm sunny ocean beaches for the winter. Might as well get ready to hunker down here.
Now to share an ink on tile I recently did, which was very very very loosely based on a photo taken by Heather of Snap Happy Gal Photography. Take a look at what she does – she’s terrific!
