Share Your World – March 26, 2018

I’m sitting here watching the birds and small critters outside my window, avoiding things like vacuuming, laundry, yard work – because I don’t wanna, not right now. Later. I’ll do something later. A really good way to avoid things I don’t want to do is to play with Cee and share more of my world.

What is your favorite color of hair? You can name your hair color or a color that you just like. I don’t know if I have a favorite although I guess generally it’s whatever your natural color is. Except, of course, when I was younger and my natural color was a dishwatery blonde I was not happy with it. I think maybe a deep, rich brown might be the color I like the best – on someone else.

List at least 5 things that you are good at. Ummm. I am really good, expert almost, at avoiding things I don’t want to do – hence, this post. I have a really hard time commending myself. I’m good at making pie crusts. I’m good at following written instruction – which is not to say I’ll listen when someone tells me how to do something I already know how to do. I’m good at learning new things when I’m interested. I’m good at planning trips. I’m good at being manipulated by my pets and the wild critters I feed, as witnessed by the fact that I stopped typing this to go put sunflower seed out for the squirrel that just took the lid off the can I keep it in.

What is your favorite animal or type of animal? (pets, dolphins, stuffed, wild cats, etc) Animals. Almost all animals. As pets I like dogs and cats. Not so fond of snakes, rats, mice in the house as pets. I am entranced by dolphins/porpoises and I think giraffes are the most regal creatures in existence.

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. This past week – the one prior to March 26 – I appreciated having a warm, dry home to be in, a furry cuddly girl to keep me company, regular communication with my son and daughter, good food to eat. Mostly, life.

Now, some of the paintings I’ve been doing as I stay inside the warm, dry house.


My version of Northeern Lights – with a great deal of artistic license thrown in

    My favorite color of hair is red. If I were to get a cat it would (hopefully) be a red one. I love naturally red haired children and some adults. I didn’t like red hair on me so much. Though most of my stylists seem to think that’s what color it should be.

    5 things? I too can do pie crust, and I think we are in the minority because I don’t think many people actually do crust from scratch. I can play a clarinet pretty well. I can water-ski..on one ski even! I can be a good listener and I can write when I’m inspired.

    My favorite type of animal, hands down, is a dog. Got to play with the neighbor’s puppy this afternoon. I think I am in love.

    I so enjoyed reading your replies this week. I like your paintings too! 😀

    Wow, I’m not even going to try and answer those first two questions! My brain may explode. 🙂 I love dolphins and think horses are majestic creatures. But nothing beats a fur baby that can curl up beside you when you’re having a bad day. I really love the last painting. The blues in the sky and water are so lovely, and the girl is a nice pop of color…even though she is standing alone. 🙂 I hope you have a lovely Easter weekend. xoxox

    Painting #2 is my favorite. Something about those colors… I am, too, very good at avoiding housework. Dust be damned! (New motto, as of…the last several years.) Grin

    Me, too. I see the manipulation coming from people, but critters look at me and I turn to mush. Great answer to the question.

    I love your paintings, Carol. I can’t pick a favorite.
    The critters have my number, too. I can’t say no. I want to feed them all. I’ve had to resist the urge to put apples out for our small herd of deer. I read somewhere that you shouldn’t feed them because their bodies don’t handle well food that is out of season. Plus, I can tell by the way they act that feeding them will just encourage them to come up to the house, something I don’t want them to do since they carry deer ticks and deer ticks carry Lyme’s disease.
