Share Your World – January 15, 2018

I had thoughts about posting the end of this past week, but somehow those thoughts never translated into action. Not an uncommon happening – or non-happening – thing lately. So now it’s time to share again with Cee.

Complete this sentence: I’m looking forward to…. Getting up each morning. Maybe taking a trip in the spring. Finding a bottle of ambition – somewhere, anywhere.

What is your favorite comfort snack food? That varies – like so many other things in my life, it depends. I seem to go through cycles with what I want – sweet, chocolate, salty, none of the above. It is almost a given that whatever I crave tonight will not be what I craved when I went shopping yesterday. I blame this on my fickle mind. Standard comfort snack foods for me though are salty or chocolate with chocolate seeming to lead the race most of the time.

What was one of your first moneymaking jobs (other than babysitting or newspaper delivery)? For a very brief period, when I was 12, I stocked shelves in a local drug store. It was a very brief period because the boss turned out to be a creepy man. Later, when I was older but still in school, I worked as a cashier and as a snack bar attendant at our local theater.

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’m not sure I’ve been inspired this past week. Well, maybe a little bit one or two days. I’m working a little more diligently at being inspired this week – no grand inspirations, understand, but enough to get my lazy body and mind moving about a little more. One cannot sleep a life away, so it’s time for me to wake myself up.

I haven’t taken many photos lately, and the few I have were all on my phone. I charged my camera battery the other day, and set it next to my morning room chair. Still, no photos. I mean, it comes down to how many pictures of the chickadees that flit around the bird tree outside and the squirrels that are committing mayhem on my roof does any one person need? I did do some inking yesterday, so I’ll share a couple of the results of that:

Even with these, there’s a quality of sameness. Hmmm. I guess that’s just the way I am. Today. Tomorrow. Maybe.

    Lovely inkings. Otherwise, sounds like you’re smack in the middle of winter-blahs like me.

    I hate it when I get in a dull phase. They are hard to break. 😀 It is the winter blahs, that should automatically start going away in about two weeks or so.

    When you find that bottle of ambition *somewhere*, would you kindly find one for me, too? You’d be ever-so-kind, if you would, please!

    Ambition is elusive for me, too. I’m laughing here because I charged up my camera over the weekend, but have yet to find anything worth snapping. Maybe some months we aren’t meant to be productive? Just a thought that I’m clinging to right now.

    I like the ink drawings. And I’d be happy to see tons of skwerl and chickadee pics!

    I haven’t been outside to take many winter pics either (reference the negative temps). My January 2018 photo folder is all but empty and it’s already the middle of the month! Comfort snack food? Chocolate, of course! First “real” job was as a counter girl for a grill restaurant in the mall called Eddy’s Loaf and Stein. I handled the salads and took the sandwich orders. Wow…that was a lifetime ago! First and last job in the food industry. 🙂

    Hi, Carol. I found you on Lake Superior Spirit. I understand what you said about not wanting to suck others into the darkness. Sometimes I retreat from blogging for that reason. And I don’t always want to take photos in this image-driven world. I love your ink art. So much more expressive than a photo, in my humble opinion. ❤


I'd love to hear from you!
