Share Your World & a Flashback


Flashback SYWbanner319


It’s another Monday, and time for new questions from Melanie and answers from me! To join in, and see other entries, just click the above link. Thanks, so much for taking on the SYW challenge!

Here are the Qs & As =

What’s your remedy for the Holiday blues?

I don’t think I ever have the holiday blues. Not sure even what this means. You either like celebrating the holidays, or you don’t.

You may at times feel forced to socialize with family, friends, or co-workers, you know – put on a happy face. I don’t think I’d feel ‘blue’ about it, though. I know I don’t like parties much, anyway, but for a little while I can handle it.

Now later on, after all the build up to a holiday, the actual festivities, and then there is maybe a let down feeling that all the fun has gone away until next time. Would that be feeling ‘blue’?

Your favorite beverage (if it differs) during the holiday season?  If it doesn’t differ, just answer the ‘what’s your favorite beverage” part. 

I drink hot coffee and iced tea all the time. It never changes, except with milk for breakfast. I do like the taste of egg nog at Christmas, though, just a little bit of it.

This one has been asked before, but what’s your take on pumpkin spice?

I like pumpkin pie very much. That’s the only thing pumpkin I’ve ever had, and all the other foods that have this spice flavor I don’t think I’d like at all.



Now, look what I found.

I was going through some old posts and found the very first Share Your World one I ever did. It was when Cee was the host of the challenge, and these are the questions from that one. 🙂

*I looked at the link I’d put on here, but that page isn’t there any more, so I took it out*




I ran across this interesting blog the other day. The blogger puts different challenges on for people to participate in. The one I wanted to do today is called “Share Your World”. Every week there is a new prompt. This is the first one I will be doing. The prompt had a list of several topics to choose from…you could pick four, and then list four things related to these that you like. It is just a fun way to get to know more about each other, and find some new blogs to read. I like that idea. 🙂

Here are the topics I chose to respond to …


I love all kinds of music, so it was hard to choose only four, but for today I’ll say…

Amie by Pure Prairie League

High Enough by Damn Yankees

The Bliss & Lola Montez  by Volbeat

Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd

Then I listen to the Eagles songs pretty much every day, because…the Eagles! Also, I like the Steve Miller Band songs.



I’d love to have a whole wall done in chalkboard…that way I could write and draw on the wall, and change it whenever I wanted. (I have a thing since I was a kid about writing on the walls…actually got in trouble for it 😉

An indoor atrium/patio with lots of plants and tropical things.

One of those clay type fire pit that you burn wood in…called a chiminea.

I would love to have a huge covered, wooden porch, with an old fashioned porch swing.



My grandchildren. They are so funny in the things they say and do.

My cats…always cute and silly. (sadly all my indoor cats have passed on now)

Typos and bloopers in newspapers, or on signs…they crack me up every time.

“I Love Lucy” television show. No matter how many times I’ve seen them, I always laugh.








So, that’s the list I did. Hope you enjoyed reading some of the things I like!


Thanks for visiting! Peace ☮️

  1. Very nice list Barbara! Thanks for Sharing that Flashback to the Original Blog with everyone! 🙂 I believe Cee takes down the old posts and archives them or something, which may be why you couldn’t find it any more.

    • Thanks, Sadje!
      Glad you liked the first one I’d done for SYW. I’d forgotten about it, so it was a nice surprise to see again. I did quite a lot of the challenges when Cee was hosting, and I’m so glad that Melanie has continued with the weekly questions. 🙂

      • You’re welcome! Visiting the past can be pleasant and nostalgic too.
        Melanie is a great host. Very interesting questions every week.

      • I agree with you – I couldn’t imagine taking on a challenge hosting job, but Melanie has been doing fantastic with it – always interesting questions, too. 🙂
