We use a flashlight and a cell phone to light the candles.

Share Your World – 2016 Week 19


1. You win a pet monkey but this isn’t just any old monkey.

It can do one trick for you whenever you want from getting a pop out of the fridge to washing your hair.

What would be the trick?

I would want a monkey that will wash dishes.  I can dirty them without a problem, but my inner child refuses to clean them without protest. 


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

Today is about over so the caring thing I will do tomorrow is clean off my coffee table.

Yup……it really needs help.


3.  What color do you feel most comfortable wearing?

Do I really need to choose?  I have 4 favorites and which I wear depends on the mood I’m in. 

Black, brown, green or blue, today it was black.  Christmas it’s always green.



4.  Complete this sentence:  When I travel I love to….

Find something unusual to take a picture of.




Share Your World – 2016 Week 17


When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen? 

Not picky.  I don’t write much so when I need something I just grab the first thing I come across.

What’s your choice: jigsaw, word, maze or numeric puzzles?

Jigsaw jigsaw jigsaw…..actually, online jigsaw.  Jigsaw Planet.


Do you prefer long hair or short hair for yourself? 

Short to very short. 

About once every 3 years I let it grow to shoulder length, and when it gets there it gets cut because it annoys me.

If you had to have your vision corrected would you rather: glasses or contacts?  Or what do you use if you need to have your vision corrected?

Wow.   I could copy Cee’s answer word for word and it would fit me just perfectly……but I won’t, I’ll write my own. 

I would pick glasses, they are just easier.  I asked about contacts when I was much younger (at my mother’s request) and the optician said it was not possible because of my astigmatism.

6 to 60 it’s been and always will be glasses.


If you had to describe your day as a traffic sign, what would it be?

Proceed with caution…….detour……lane changes ahead….

And why these signs?  Because I make plans with the best of intentions and 80 percent of the time I end up changing them.



Was school easy or difficult for you? How so?

It was both easy and difficult at the same time.  But I think mostly easy.  I have always loved to learn new things.  I always did really well on tests.  The difficult times were when I procrastinated on a writing project.



Would you rather take a 1 or 2 week vacation with an organized tour or take a cruise of your choice?

An organized tour?  I think not.  I need the freedom to roam on my own, to wander, to poke into places, to explore.  You can find such interesting things when you just wander around.

List at least five favorite flowers or plants.
