Share Your World – March 13, 2017


Do you push the elevator button more than once?  Do you really believe it makes the elevator faster?

Most times I don’t push the elevator button more than once. I don’t like elevator buttons, and don’t want to touch them. I feel that there are too many germs on it from who knows how many grubby fingers pushing that button. You know little kids love to push those buttons, and sick people, and … well, does anyone ever clean those things? If I have to push the button, I usually do it with my hand up in my sleeve, or maybe my elbow. Same goes for door handles in public places…ugh!

Do you plan out things usually or do you do them more spontaneous (for example if you are visiting a big city you don’t know?)

I’m not much of a planner. I just go with the flow, and let those I’m with say where we’re going or what we’re doing. I’m fine with anything.

Describe yourself in at least four uplifting words.

Strange/weird (in a fun and good way?) … easy going … artistic/creative … happy-go-lucky …

If you had a choice which would be your preference salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, ocean cruise, hot tub, ski resort or desert? 

I liked the beaches when I visited them, but haven’t been there but a couple of times. I like the woods and mountains better. And, I love the desert!

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

Last week was fun, because my daughter and I went to some yard sales/flea market kind of things. This week nothing is planned (see above question) so I’ll just have to see what happens day to day. 🙂 Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead.


Thanks for visiting! Peace }i{

I know I’m clumsy, but really, do they have to call it ambisinister? That sounds so bad, like it’s sinister to be clumsy. hahaha…Not so much sinister to anyone but me.

Take the other day. I was minding my own business, going shopping. I had to actually take the grimy subway to get to the shop I wanted to visit. Well, I doubt they ever sanitize those turnstiles you have to go through. I tried pushing my way through without touching anything, but ended up falling through the gate. I skinned my palms as I landed.

As soon as I could, I washed my hands, but it didn’t help. By that time the itching had started. I was shivering, and burning up with a fever, too. It felt like a thousand ephemerids were crawling under my skin.

I went to see my doctor, who said it was just a benign rash, and it would go away in a few days. I left the doctor’s chamber and walked down the narrow hallway. I’d had to bribe him for some medicines to alleviate my symptoms.

I told him I’d buy his little girl a plush toy animal, when I was able to go shopping again. That was why I was going shopping in the first place. My little girl wanted the same cute toy. I had to delay her happiness, all because I had such a day of destruction.
