Share Your World – January 29, 2018

In my current mode of non-motivation, it seems like a good time to just sit at the computer and let my fingers do the walking. Fighting that urge to search online for a new pair of earrings that I could put on and just leave on, eliminating any need to decide if/what earrings to wear on any given day. When I was working full time, that’s what I did. I have a pair purchased maybe 40 years ago that work, but they are gold and I have decided I prefer silver now. Fighting that urge means occupying myself some other way – like sharing my world by answering Cee’s questions.

If you had an unlimited shopping spree at only one store, which one would you choose? Why? Amazon – no doubt – because they have everything and anything I could possibly want. And more. Oh, could I build up a store of “stuff” to leave for my kids to take care of when I am gone.

What is the worst thing you ate recently? I made a dish for dinner a couple of weeks ago – I don’t recall now exactly what it was, but it didn’t involve a recipe. Suffice it to say, I am not a cook by nature, so recipes are a good idea for me. Anyway, I ate some one night. A little. Then made myself a peanut butter sandwich. Does that tell you anything? It’s probably the first food I’ve thrown away in a long time.

Name five things you like watching… On TV – This Is Us, Dancing With the Stars. Although most often I stream things from Netflix, Amazon, BritBox or Acorn. I’ve grown fond of British shows – they seem to have more story lines that interest me these days. Tonight I start this season of Grace and Frankie on Netflix – unless I decide to watch the State of the Union.
In real life – squirrels chasing each other around, kittens playing, Shasta putting on her fierce face and telling the world to watch out, she’s here, like Gobblefunkist said, ocean waves come and go, come and go. Really that could be any large body of water. Sunrises and sunsets. Birds outside – I am not fond of birds inside.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. I appreciated life this past week, although there is no motivation to “do” anything right now. It’s still nice to actually be able to get out of bed and stand upright, watch the clouds go by or the weather try to decide if it wants to rain or snow, or maybe do neither. I smiled when a summer dress that I found online on sale arrived and I love it.

No photos, no inkings this week. Because. It’s been a lazy week. Because. But the sun is appearing after being in hiding for a few days, so perhaps something will stir me. Later.

    Grace and Frankie should win over the state of the union. I’ve already seen it, and it is so good. Classic stuff. 😀 Thanks for sharing Carol.

  2. Carol — I think my shopping-spree store would be Ikea.

    I have only one ear pierced, and have worn a small black star earring for a couple of years now. Some people ignore it and some say, accurately, “OH! For Bowie!” and indeed it is in memory of him and his last album, Black Star.

    I love to watch squirrels and animals too.

    I am holding off on Grace and Frankie for now, otherwise I will binge watch the entire season and lament the fact that I did.

    I love Grace and Frankie as well. I’ve started watching season four and am not disappointed.

    I’m also in a mode of non-motivation. Unfortunately, there are many things demanding my complete and total attention. [Blech] We’re binge watching Marvel’s Agents of Shield on Netflix right now; which is great until we catch up to the current season which is already half over on network TV. I don’t watch any sitcoms because I find most of them mindlessly stupid. 😀 The worst thing I’ve eaten? To go along with my non-motivation, it would be potato chips. I’m hoping my attitude is tied to the weather and both will straighten up soon.

  7. I did binge watch Grace and Frankie after not being sure if I’d like it for a while I watched and got involved and watched three seasons in about three weeks. Season four is just available on Netflix here but I ‘ll wait till there are two or three episodes to watch. I generally prefer British and Australian shows myself but have liked a couple from the US recently including This is Us.

    Amazon is a great answer to that question. So practical of you to figure that out.


I'd love to hear from you!
