Share Your World – June 22, 2021)

Mid-morning, and my weather center says it’s already 88 degrees outside – for those who love hot, this is probably good news. I am less fond of hot, so it does not excite me. Today I must take my car in for a repair, and while that is being done, my daughter and I will go get a pedicure – we’ll be inside in air conditioning as much as possible for certain. In the meantime, Melanie has offered a chance to share my world again, and I have decided to accept her offer.

What’s one question you wish more people asked you? Hmmm. I don’t know of a question I would like to be asked. We all ask “how are you”, and most of us answer that we are fine. Whether we are really fine or not is open for discussion, but rarely do we give a real answer. Some might suggest “do you need anything?” as a good question to ask – but I suspect my standard answer to that would be “thank you for asking, but I’m fine”. A lot like the “how are you?” answer.

Do you like eggs? What’s your favorite way to have them served? (Optional obviously, I know there are egg dislikers in the crowd).. Sometimes. My current preferred egg dish would be scrambled with additions as desired at the moment of cooking, then rolled in a tortilla to be eaten. My daughter has four laying hens that are very reliable, so we do not have a shortage of eggs, and there are days when eggs for a meal are predicated by the number of eggs waiting to be used. During the school year, she will take eggs to work to be shared. But the school year is now over, and neighbors also have chickens, so we explore recipes that use lots of eggs.

Thoughts on scary movies? (not horror necessarily, but suspense or action/thrillers) Horror movies are a hard no – but movies with some suspense are fine. Suspense as in “who dunnit” suspense I’ll watch. Suspense as in “what’s going to pop out of the least expected spot” will be avoided.

Do you believe in Karma? I absolutely believe in karma. I’ve seen it, I’ve experienced it – one of my most used sayings is “what goes around, comes around”. I view karma as one of the best tools around to level things out.

GRATITUDE (as always optional)

At this moment, what you are most grateful for? Life. Air-conditioning (see opening paragraph). That this little girl is hanging in there. Her age is starting to really show though, which worries me.

    Sweet Shasta. Another blogger wrote about her older dog. I can’t handle it. They should not be allowed to grow old.

  4. Thank you Carol for Sharing Your World! We’ve seen unseasonably high temps over here too, so my sympathies. Today it’s a lot cooler and I’m hopeful (without high expectations) that we’ll get a good solid rainstorm. I can dream… If I may ask, how old is Shasta? She’s beautiful, but yes they do age. They age so much faster than we’d prefer, but I privately think they’re angels with fur, and they are granted less time here as a blessing. I hope you have a few years to adjust all the same. I know (from very recent losses) how heart rending that loss is. An idea for using eggs is the frittata. You can throw in your favorite veggies and meat (if you want) or do a fairly plain one. The only downside (in the heat) is that you have to bake the thing. But you can use quite a few eggs in the dish I believe. Now I want frittata! 😉 Have a cooler week and hug that beautiful girl. (I love the photo. She’s ‘guarding’ her toy/baby! Aw! ❤ )

      Shasta is 12-1/2 years old, so she’s at the high end of average lifespan for her size dog. It’s tough – yesterday was one of those days that made me think it was time to let her go, then she looks at me with ears alert and the tail flops, and I question my thoughts all over again. Frittatas are great – I’ve done them without the baking, just in a frying pan. Kind of like an omelet you don’t flip.

    I wish more people would ask me, do you believe in Karma? I’m not be facetious here, I really do think that’s a great way to start a conversation and get a feel for who you’re talking with.

    Oh, how I’d love to take some of those eggs off your hands! Fresh eggs sound lovely. We’re having bipolar weather here for June and I so wish it would straighten out and be more consistent. I agree horror flicks are a hard no but do like crime dramas and other suspense and mysteries. I have a hard time with Karma because it doesn’t make sense to me. How does Karma account for bad things that happen to good people? While I’d like to think bad people get what’s coming to them, I don’t believe they always do. Everyone does good things as well as bad things. On this side of heaven, good doesn’t always win and bad isn’t always punished.
