Sharing My World

I am sitting in the recliner if my silent home, with the black princess cat sleeping peacefully on the arm of the chair next to me, because that has become her morning routine, as I go through my morning routine of reading and responding to my mail. It is silent in my home because the other occupants have gone to work. The silence coupled with my lack of interest in doing anything constructive just now makes it seem the perfect time to share my world, as Melanie has suggested.

Which would you rather throw away: Love or Money? Money I think, because real love is harder to find and to keep. Then again – love will not fill the emptiness in your stomach, only in your heart. I guess the real question here then is, which is more important, to have an empty stomach or an empty heart? I have it! I’ll throw away money, but not all of the money, because I need to keep enough to fill my stomach and provide a roof over my head, and the love will keep my heart warm and keep me from becoming hardened and mean. Yes?

Do you believe you should do one thing a day that scares you? I believe I should challenge myself, but every single day? That might be a bit much, don’t you think? Also, I don’t think I am given the choice of something that scares me every day. So I’m going for doing something that scares me (something challenging) once a week. That seems a good compromise to me.

What’s the last thing you do at night? Go to sleep. I mean really, how else could you end a night?

If you could own a mythical creature (unicorn, phoenix, etc.), which one would you pick? (A nod to the soon ending 2021 A-Z Blogging Challenge, my topic this year “Mythical Creatures”) I am not coming up with any mythical creatures other than the two you mentioned right now, so of the two you mentioned, I think I would choose to be a unicorn, a unicorn who spends its days happily wandering through the wooded lands, over hills and dales, with stops at the beach to breathe in the beach air and wander along the sandy shores, hearing music only the unicorn can hear because it is, after all, lovely unicorn music. Oops, I misread the question, and answered as if it asked which one I would prefer to be. Still, if I could own a mythical creature – wait, I need to think of more mythical creatures before I answer that. Ask this question a bit later, would you?

As always, next is the gratitude section – which I almost always answer the same way. I am grateful for my loved ones, family and friends. I am grateful for the roof over my head, the ability to get out of bed every day, the privilege of doing things I enjoy, the fact that I have enough. I am grateful for this life. I am grateful for having gotten both of my Covid vaccinations, for the sense of freedom (masked, still) that gives me.

To end this, on my loom right now:

And a morning visitor

    I like your morning routine. Ours is to put the cats in their room so we can eat breakfast. We don’t need them trying to taste-test everything. Your morning visitor is so sweet. I hear the birds in the trees, so sit and revel in that. Rarely do they allow me to see them, though.

    I don’t want to do one thing every day that scares me. I’d rather go through life doing one thing every day that encourages me. It might be a scary thing, it might be a mundane thing– but I’d feel encouraged by the end of the day. 🤷‍♀️
