Late again to the party, what can I say? Cee has invited us to share once again, and I’m ready to join in now.
What household chore do you absolutely hate doing? Ha! Which one do I not hate doing? Well, hate is a bit strong, but I dislike most (all) household chores. I think the one I dislike (okay, probably really do hate) is cleaning bathrooms. Or dusting surfaces that are cluttered – but I don’t like surfaces that don’t have some “clutter” (pretty things) on them, so it’s a lose-lose I guess. I make sporadic efforts to reduce my pretty clutter, but then it’s the “what to do with it?” problem.
At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive? I’m feeling challenged with the questions this week. I’m not sure I’ve actually felt passionate recently. At least not in a positive sense – I am quite passionate about much of what’s going on in our political world – negatively so, unfortunately. I am bewildered by what I see in our politicians as a lack of morality, integrity, honesty, and real concern for the truly forgotten people – the voters that cannot donate large amounts to these politicians. I have a passionate dislike for their behavior, and could become quite alive if they could just once do something good for the country and its people. Okay, getting off my bandwagon now.
How many times have you moved in the last ten years? Thankfully, I have not moved in the last ten years. When we moved here 18 years ago I said it would be my last move. I think there will be one more one day, but I don’t know where or when.
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. I appreciated, and continue to appreciate, that we have had no heavy snowfall down in the valley yet. I would like the heavy snows to stay in the mountains, and to spare us at least until after my kids have come for the holidays and headed home again. We live in an area that is not easily reached when the snows fall and has limited travel options.
I think I’ll go fix myself a cup of chamomile tea now. The brain needs calming.
