Share Your World – July 16, 2018

After an absence of a couple of weeks, because I am so busy, you know (uh huh, sure) I’ve decided to join Cee in her challenge and share some more of my world.

Since we are approaching the hottest part of our summer in the northern hemisphere, what’s your favorite ice-cream, frozen yogurt or sorbet flavor?  (Those of you who live down under I’m sure you remember what it is like in the hot summer months). Ice cream – usually chocolate, the richer the better, although sometimes vanilla with fruit or chocolate syrup works for me too. It’s definitely a summer treat for me – the idea of eating something icey in winter just doesn’t work.

How often do you people watch? Whenever I’m around people. I also tend to people-listen too often, which I think is rude but if you’re out there in public and talking within hearing distance of others, maybe it’s fair game. I just have to be careful not to interject into others’ conversations.

If you had a choice which would be your preference salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, ocean cruise, hot tub, ski resort or desert? Salt water beaches, with fresh lakes a close second. I took an ocean cruise once, and enjoyed it – I think I’d like to do a river cruise too. My most favorite, most calming thing would be an ocean beach though. In my dreams, I will have an oceanfront house when I grow up.

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 have been enjoying time with my daughter and looking forward to time with my son later this summer. I have been being mostly very lazy, managing the house chores that shout for attention, ignoring the others. Kat, however, has been very very busy creating:D2C0ADCE-E9A9-4B51-935A-3F9293D3D1D0

Oh, I have been doing some painting, so I might have something new to share with you in a day or so or more.

A close-up of one:

    Oh, I am a watcher and a listener, too! And a maker-upper if things seem a bit dull….

    I like to listen to what people are talking about, too. Much to be learned, much to be entertained by. 😉

    people listening is always so interesting.. sometimes leaving us having to make up the ending of the story when they walk away 🙂

    I am an eves dropper too. No malicious intention though…I just like to understand what makes people talk – given my own deficiencies in the area.
    Can’t wait to see your next painting.

    I’m virtually always out & about alone and can’t seem to help interjecting myself into strangers’ convos.
    for the water questions, I chose hot tub. I like them so much that it was the relaxation tape I used till amazon dropped it. in my quest for another good one I stumbled upon a “boiling water” video, which sounds more like a jacuzzi than most of the jacuzzi vids. buy, yeah, real life oceans are awesome!

    totally forgot to ask: what are the creations? I can make out little stuffed chairs but I can’t tell what anything else is.

    I surely love a good people listen! It’s not like I creep in close…you’re in public, you’re speaking your thoughts out loud, I figure it’s fair game.
