What one word describes you best?

Spacey.

So, I was looking up the definitions of spacey, and every one of them sounds like me. They are: spaced out, daydreamer, eccentric, unconventional, flighty, irresponsible, not in touch with reality, confused, unable to concentrate, vague, dreamy, strange, eerie…

Even my first name means ‘strange or a stranger’… foreign or strange…traveler from a foreign land…

My family would agree, and add ‘alien’, as in from outer space, and have said so many times. They laugh and ask when my ET ‘real’ family are coming to take me back to my home planet.

I’m not kidding!

What is set as the background on your computer?

I don’t think I have one since my computer messed up awhile back. In fact, I’m having to go through my mister’s side of the internet thingy, because it won’t even let me on anymore. I think his is a beach scene or something. I used to have a pretty one of a dirt path through the green woods, with tall trees.

If you have been to a foreign country name those you have been too?

Yes, I’ve been to some, and lived for awhile in a couple. We traveled around because of the Army, so got to see lots of different places. We lived a year or so in Germany, and a couple of years in Japan. I’ve also been to these countries: Mexico, Ireland, England, France

What caring thing are you going to do for yourself today?

I do pretty much the same things every day – whatever I want to.

List at least five of your favorite spices? (excluding salt and pepper)

Cinnamon, Cumin, Cilantro, Sage, Vanilla (is that a spice?), cloves, nutmeg

What can you always be found with?

I always have my iphone so I can take photos at any time, and get text notices from my daughters.

Share Your World – December 11, 2017 – Repeat of Last Week

Cee, the captain of Share Your World, has been having internet problems, so this is a repeat of the last week’s questions.

As I was also having computer problems, I didn’t get to answer them at the time, so here they are now!

Also, below these questions are more questions, provided by Laura, at ‘Riddle From the Middle’.

Here’s her blog with the questions she posed for this week:

Share Your World 12/11/17

Thanks, Laura!

Hope your internet problems are resolved soon, Cee!

What household chore do you absolutely hate doing?

Floors! I don’t like anything to do with floors if you mean in the way of cleaning them. I like that we can walk on them. That’s about it.

At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?

?? Don’t know what to say about this one. I’m happy to find out I’m still alive when I wake up in the morning.

How many times have you moved in the last ten years?

This is funny to me! If you’re wanting to know how many times we moved into different houses, I’d say none. We’ve lived here over 20 years in the same house. But…it struck me funny, as in if I myself have moved in the last 10 years. hahaha … I hope so! I’ve moved around as I go places, and do things. I even have trouble sitting still at any time, even when reading, watching TV, or typing on here. I have to be moving somehow all the time. It would be very odd if I had not moved a muscle in 10 years! 🙂

***

Is your second toe longer than your big toe?

No.

What happens when the dogs dream?

When we had dogs, we could tell they were dreaming by they way they moved their paws like they were running in their sleep. They twitch their whiskers, and make little barking noises. Their eyes flutter, too. What happens in their own mind, I have no idea, but we look at them and smile, thinking they are dreaming of chasing rabbits or something. Who knows? They never even seen a rabbit, except the pet one we had one time. Oh, our cat dreams sometimes, too, with all the same movements, only she meows instead of barks. 🙂

What’s on your closet floor right now?

A bunch of junk! Boxes of old VCR tapes of stuff I wanted to keep. Several big ‘ol wallpaper sample books (I use the pages sometimes as scrap book paper), paper bags full of stuff to put in scrap books, boxes of my written in notebooks, my guitar, my violin, my sewing machine, fabric in boxes, sacks of knick-knacks I took off a shelf, photographs in boxes and bags, some of which are not even of our family…I found them at an estate sale. And on and on with more stuff. No clothes or shoes on the floor, though.

Name five books on your bookshelf.

Aww man…now I have to go look! Which shelf? I have a lot of books, real books, and they are everywhere!

Here’s 5 I picked randomly. They are all good, but I haven’t read them in a long time.

  1. Strange Red Cow (and other curious classified ads from the past) by Sara Bader
  2. A World Turned Over (a true story of a devastating tornado) by Lorian Hemingway
  3. In a Dark Place (the story of a true haunting) by Ray Garton
  4. Letters From a Nut (silly letters he wrote to companies) by Ted L. Nancy
  5. A Box of Matches (a novel) by Nicholson Baker

Do you ever sit on a park bench for more than ten minutes?

As far as I know we don’t have park benches in any park I’ve seen. That’s not saying much, as I don’t go to any parks. We only have one large park, Mackenzie State Park. There’s not much there. There’s the amusement park in the park, and prairie dog town, and a golf course. A tiny stream, a small branch of the Brazos river, runs through it. There’s some trees, but not really that many, as a storm decimated most of them a few years back. Any other area that might be called a park, is just some space around our many playa lakes. I’ve not really seen any benches anywhere. That’s not to say there aren’t any, as maybe there are. Anyway, to finally answer the question…no, I don’t sit on any park benches, for any length of time.

When you lose electricity in a storm, do you light the candles, turn on the flashlight or use your cell phone for light?

In a storm, I get my flashlight handy, my battery radio, and then I light a bunch of candles. It’s nice.

Would you rather be given $10,000 for your own use or $100,000 to give anonymously to strangers?

At this point, I’d take the $10,000 for my own use. We can sure use it. It would be nice to be able to have plenty of money to give away to others, but I don’t see that happening.

Here we are again, with SYW and questions from Cee, and answers from me! Join in…click the link! 🙂

***

Would you rather take a 2 week vacation with an organized tour or take a cruise of your choice?

Neither one would I be interested in these days. Two weeks away from home is too long. First, we’d have to find someone to come feed and care for our cat, and feed the outside cats and birds. Then, I wouldn’t want an organized tour, having to go and do things that the tour people think would be good. I’d rather be on my/our own to find our own fun. Also, I’m not into being around a lot of people. As for the cruise…absolutely not, for all the same reasons, and then …have you heard about all the disasters that happen to cruises? There can be all kinds of illnesses, people falling or pushed overboard, disappearances, pirates, sinking of the ship, stranded somewhere, and besides, there are fish out there in the water! Oh no…never, ever!

Did you like swinging as a child? Do you still get excited when you see a swing?

I loved to swing! I had a swing set in the back yard. Now, not interested.

What is the most important thing that you ever learned ? (I bet it’s not something you learned in school)

I have no idea. Every day we learn something new, and think it is the most important thing ever, then we learn something else. We probably learn the most during our toddler years, such as walking, talking, and potty training. These will be with you for life, so they are important to learn early. 🙂

Where do you eat breakfast?

I eat breakfast in the living room, on the couch, at a TV tray in front of me, while watching TV or reading a book.

Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want have a evening with?

My whole family.

If you could be a tree or plant, what would you be?

A pine tree, because they smell really good, or a weeping willow tree, because they are so pretty and graceful.

Was school easy or difficult for you? How so?

It seemed like all my school years were easy. I don’t remember many problems with my classes, homework, or grades. That is, all except math and P.E. Those were awful, and my grades were very bad. I got along well with the teachers, and I had some friends to hang out with. In fact, I’m still in contact with a lot of them, even as far back as elementary school.

List some of your favorite types of animals.

Cats, dogs, birds, rodents, reptiles, insects, spiders, tigers, giraffes

What is your favorite large city you have been to? What is the one thing you remember most?

Tokyo, Japan,  Nuremberg, Germany,Austin, TX, Kansas City, and Columbia MO

Tokyo, because it is so vastly different culturally. So many new things to see and do.

Nuremberg, because it is so interesting to see where history happened, the castle, the cobblestone streets, the food.

Austin, because like they say, ‘keep Austin weird’. There are lots of things to do there, interesting shops, and great places to eat.

KC and Columbia MO, because my daughter & family lived both places, and visiting is fun with lots to do and see with them.

If you had to move to a country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why? 

I have moved and lived in other countries, but nothing beats coming back home to the USA. If I had to according to the question posed today, I’d say Sweden, Canada, or Australia. I’ve never been to these countries, but for some reason I’m drawn to Sweden, Canada sounds nice, especially BC on the western coast, (thanks for all the wonderful descriptions, Emily) , and Australia because it has some interesting animals that we don’t have here.

What color would you like your bedroom to be?

I only have plain old white walls in this house, and it’s boring. I’d like to paint huge wall sized murals in every room, to depict a different culture in each. For the bedroom, I’d want a jungle scene, with lots of green plants, and also all kinds of animals peeking out of the greenery. The other rooms would be of a Mexican Fiesta, and a Japanese motif.

What makes you Happy? Make a list of things in your life that bring you joy.

  • my family
  • my cat
  • my writing
  • my art
  • reading
  • shopping yard sales
  • rainy/stormy days
