What?! November is half over already? But it just got here, didn’t it? Time is going way too fast for me. Speaking of time, it’s that time again – time for sharing our worlds.
Do you ever sit on a park bench for more than ten minutes? There are no parks nearby my house, although there are a couple in the bigger town down the road aways. So, no, I don’t sit on a park bench for more than ten minutes, and if there were a park with a bench nearby, I probably would not anyway. I do sit on a chair on my deck in the nice weather for more than ten minutes on a fairly regular basis. It’s hard to sit for long if I’m not doing something while I’m sitting.
When you lose electricity in a storm, do you light the candles, turn on the flashlight or use your cell phone for light? I light candles and the two oil lamps we bought specifically for that reason. When we first moved here, power outages happened fairly often, but in the past few years they are much more infrequent. Which is good, because my house is all electric, so when I lose power I have nothing. Except darkness. Candlelight. Oil lamp light. The good thing about an e-reader is they have their own light, so now I can still read.
Would you rather be given $10,000 for your own use or $100,000 to give anonymously to strangers? This question is one I’d rather not answer, because although I’d love to be generous and have money to give away, my budget is very tight, and there are places I’d like to go, things I’d like to see – so, at risk of appearing to be selfish (because I guess I am), can we make a deal here? Can I take the $100,000, keep $10,000 of it to fund my travels, and give the other $90,000 away anonymously to strangers in need?
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. Inspiration is still running low, although I did come up with an idea for a series of greeting cards, which I may or may not follow up on. Here’s a sample of what I’m thinking of doing:
I did appreciate a dinner with several friends and their other friends on Veterans’ Day. It was a potluck, and as usual, there was far too much food, all of it delicious. The company was good, and conversation enjoyable.
