Share Your World – May 15, 2017


It’s time for another Share Your World, with questions from Cee and answers from me!


How many languages do you you speak?

I speak English. I took 2 years of French in high school, and remember some of it, but don’t really have occasion to use it. I know a little Spanish, just because there are lots of Spanish speaking people here, and I hear it all the time. Then, I know a few sentences in German, Japanese, and Korean, because we lived in those countries for a little while. Oh, and for fun I know Pig Latin, and OP language. My name said in OP is… Bop-a-rop-bop-a-rop-a πŸ™‚ This is kinda funny, because my grand-daughter’s name for me is Bop. She came up with that herself.

What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating?

I’m kind of in between books to read right now. I hate that I can’t settle on one. I keep trying this one and that one, and none gets me interested enough to continue. I have stacks of books to be read, too. The last book I finished in a few days was, “The New York Regional Morman Singles Halloween Dance”, a memoirΒ  by Elna Baker. Before that I read the “Maze Runner” series, by Michael Grant, and the “Gone series, by James Dashner. Those were fantastic YA books. I’ve been reading, “Ready Player One”, by Ernest Cline, too, but just in small pieces. It’s really good, but I only am on page 103, afterΒ  a year.

Meanwhile, I read lots of great blogs! πŸ™‚

I’m not watching anything. I barely watch any TV, but am waiting for Big Brother to come back on, I think the end of June. That’s all I really like to watch.

I listen to the Eagles Greatest Hits over and over. I listen to oldies radio in the mornings while doing my make-up, and in the truck. I’ve been listening to all the music videos I post on here!

I just got done eating a chef salad for lunch. I’m cooking a pot roast for supper. I’m on an obsession for eating Puff Corn. They taste like popcorn without the hulls, they’re crisp, but yet melt in your mouth. Yum!


What was the last photo you took with your phone?

The last photo I took with my phone was not suitable for here, so I took another one…:) This is the plant I got for Mother’s Day. Really cool. πŸ™‚

What is your favorite time of day?

I like late at night best, but my timetable has changed, so now I’m up before dawn, about 4 a. m. I like when everything is dark and quiet, either early or late.

Optional Bonus question: Β What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?Β 

I had a nice Mother’s Day, with a long phone conversation with my daughter who lives out of state, and lunch with my daughter here in town. I received super cool gifts from everyone. This week there is nothing I know of planned, so I’ll just go with the flow, and see how it goes.

Wishing y’all a wonderful week ahead!


Thanks for visiting! Peace }i{

  1. Yes, another vote for The Eagles πŸ™‚
    LOVE the plant!
    Bop. Awesome.
    I think I read Maze Runner books with Moo. If they’re the ones I remember, they’re pretty nifty.

  2. What is OP language? It looks like fun. So, I would be: Sop-uzop-anop-nop-e haha If I did that right, then my OP name ends in “nope”. That works! I think that it is cute that your grand-daughter calls you “Bop”. My grandma name, if I ever get to be a grandma, is Moogie, after Qwarks mama on Star Trek Deep Space Nine. David’s grandpa name will be Gindy. That is what one of our friends called his grandpa and David thought it was really nice. Of course, these are subject to change because the grandkids might come up with their own names for us. πŸ™‚

    David likes Puff Corn pretty good, too.

    Ooh what a cool plant? Lucky you! What kind is it?

    I’m glad that you had a nice Mother’s Day and got to talk with one daughter and visit with the other. I heard from three of our kids and a gift came in the mail yesterday from Davey and his new bride. It is a cross necklace and very pretty. Our oldest daughter is, here with us. We picked her up from school last week. Our baby girl down on the island texted me the night before to wish me a happy Mother’s Day and then I talked to her Sunday evening. Davey called Sunday evening, too.

    I hope that your week goes great. Have a blessed day. πŸ™‚

    • Looks like you had a very lovely Mother’s Day, too! It’s always nice to hear from the kids! … The little info card with the plant says its a succulent and called Haworthia. Never heard that name before, but it sure is pretty, I agree. … Oh the OP language…I think you did your name just right! Put ‘op’ after consonants, and pretty much just say the vowels. There are some different versions, which you can find on line. Just type in op language and a lot come up. It’s fun. … those are some really cool names for grand-ma and grand-pa! It’s nice to hear what everyone called there grandparents. I called mine granny for my dad’s mom, and mom-moo for my mom’s mom. πŸ™‚ Yeah, I’m Bop to my grand-daughter, and Grammy to my grand-son. πŸ™‚ … enjoy your evening! xo

      • Thank you. Yes, it was very nice to hear from them.

        I’ll have to look that plant up and see if it is okay for this area. I’ve never heard of it before either.

        Was it you whose grandpa played word games, like this OP thing? I remember reading about something similar on someone’s blog before this post of yours. I keep thinking maybe it was you. πŸ™‚

        I think your grandma names are cool, too. I called my mama’s parents “grandma” and “grandp” and my daddy’s parents “granny” and “papa”. Daddy called his daddy’s mama “Big Mama”. Both of his grandpas were already dead by the time he was born. I do not know what he called his mama’s mama, but I figure he called her “granny” as that is what we called his mama. My mama called all of hers “grandma” and “grandpa”.

        Have a blessed night. πŸ™‚

  3. No, it wasn’t me whose GP played word games. … It’s fascinating to see what kids call their grand parents. Some are what the kid makes up, and others are more formal. Different countries have their own words for them, too. I’ve always been interested in names and their meanings, and how people spell them or pronounce them differently.
