It’s been quite a long time since I’ve shared my world with Melanie and the rest of you, but I feel a need to stop posting about the things in this world that are thorns in my side and find some lighter topics. Sharing my world seemed like the perfect opportunity.
What was the last TV show you binge-watched? If you don’t watch TV (congratulations by the way) what’s the last thing you binged ON?
I’ve been binging on home improvement shows for quite awhile now, but recently have felt a desire to vary my viewing habits, so I binged on PBS’ Atlantic Crossing, and the last couple of evenings on PBS’ No Second Chance, based on a Harlen Coben book. No Second Chance was a French film, or series, and had captions for the dialogue, which I thought would bother me, but did not. I enjoyed both shows, so perhaps tonight I’ll check out what’s on BritBox, or maybe go all out and rent the award-nominated film Minari on Amazon Prime. I did watch Nomadland on Hulu a few days ago and liked it. Oh – although DirecTV is connected to the main TV in the house, I do not have it on the TV in my room, preferring to use streaming services.
What’s your most prized possession and why?
This question made me think – at first I thought of my kids and my furry kids, but then realized the question said “possession”, and they really aren’t possessions. Or are they? Okay, we’ll go with they’re not possessions. So, of the material things I own, what do I prize the most? Right now I guess I’d go with my bigger loom – but – there’s a competition for that prized possession thing, because I’d really be lost without my electronic devices now. Especially in these days of Covid coupled with living a distance from any real shopping centers, the internet is my friend. And life without Google? Nope, not a good option.
If you had the time and inclination, what would you volunteer for?
I’ve always thought I’d like to volunteer at the Humane Society – a no-kill Humane Society. But I’ve also realized I’d want to bring too many of the animals who weren’t being adopted home with me, so nope, that’s not a very good idea after all. I do have the time and kind of an inclination, but my current attitudes have me thinking staying home and keeping busy there are probably the best thing for me to do.
Do you think that humans will ever be able to live together in harmony?
I would like to think they could and would, but not holding out a lot of hope that I’ll see that day.
Gratitude – what is it I’m grateful for?
I’m grateful that my daughter and her husband have provided a home for me, since I’ve proven that living alone might not be the very best option. I’m grateful that I am able to get outside and create some gardens and work in the existing gardens. I’m grateful for the end of winter, the coming of spring, and the promise of more seasons to follow. I’m grateful for my family and my friends, non-furred and furry.
How could anyone not love that face?
Wishing you all days filled with enough.
