Share Your World – May 28, 2018

Had I decided to play with Cee On THE day, I would be wishing you a holiday filled with love and loving memories – but as usual, I did not join in on THE day, so here I am, hoping you had a pleasant holiday. And now, on to Cee’s questions.

If you were to pack a basket for pinic lunch, what would be in your basket? Who is it that’s joining me for this picnic lunch? If it’s an adult affair, I would pack wine, water, cheese, crusty bread, and fresh fruits. If children were involved, I would add sandwiches and chips for them. For everyone, I would include some kind of decadent chocolate dessert.

On a vacation what you would require in any place that you sleep? A comfy bed with clean bedding. I have vacationed in tents and the back of a station wagon “back in the day”, but my creaky old body now wants comfort. I don’t require fancy, but a little coddling is always appreciated.

If you were to buy a new house/apartment what is the top three items on your wish list? My very top wish would be oceanfront or at least waterfront. I would like some outdoor space – a small patio from which I could see the water would be just fine. I would not want a lot of space, but I’d like two bedrooms, and a space to sleep at least two other people some times. A fireplace would be a bonus. Eat in kitchen, where I suspect most often the table would be a craft space, and I’d eat, as I do now, in my comfy chair.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Pictures are worth a thousand words, so let me share a tour of my yard that made me smile.

Spirea in my windmill bed.

Hawthorne

Mountain Ash

Some of the lilacs

The first peony bloom

Woo Hoo, the first tomato to ripen. I cheated though, I bought a plant already loaded with little tomatoes. The question is, once these ripen, will there be more?

    Your garden and yard are beautiful! And you have tomatoes already. Here they just went in the ground this weekend. If you have anything chocolate I’ll picnic with you.

      I only have tomatoes because I bought the plant with the most tomatoes. Mine are in pots on a deck – living in the Basin, where frost can (and has) happened every month of the year, is a challenge, and I’ve given up planting a real garden.

    100% yes to the coddling. I’m cool without fancy but no bed or air conditioning? No thanks. 😉
