Share Your World – July 26, 2021

And now for this week’s Share Your World

Do you believe in second chances?

For whom?

Is your glass half full or half empty?

Depends on what’s in it…

Would you rather someone be honest and hurt your feelings or lie to protect them?

Yes.

When have you felt your biggest adrenaline rush?

Well, if I’m honest, today is one ’cause I’m going out for lunch for the first time since February 2020.  What do I wear?  How do I act?  It’s all a mystery to me now…

Is there inherent order in nature or is it all chaos and chance?

Yes indeed!

What is infinity?

The number of times I will post kitten pictures on this blog.

Does observation alter an event?

Depends on if you have your phone out (or if you are a Republican senator…)

Do you like balloons?   

Only if they don’t come with clowns…


RagTag Daily Prompt: Carousel

A response in starting over with a new daily avoidance (or non-avoidance, as the case may be), here with the Ragtag Daily Prompt , today is  Carousel.

What are you most proud of in the last year?

That I made it to this year…

If you see a puddle on the ground, do you walk around it or give in to the child within and splash about?

I take a picture, of course.

Do you feel free? Why or why not?

Actually, I feel quite expensive.

What life skills are rarely taught but are extremely useful?

All of them.

Would you rather be a super nice person and be depressed all your life, or be happy and a total *sshole?  (Credit goes to Cyranny for this question, aired on one of her “Cyranny’s Quickies” posts.)

Yes!  (Come on, you knew I was going to say that…)

Have you ever made someone cry?

Today?

Are you a dreamer or a go-getter?

In my dreams, I am a go-getter….

If you were in a band, what instrument would you play?

Been there, done that.  Let’s look at a kitten!

Which would you rather throw away: Love or Money?

It’s a trap!

Do you believe you should do one thing a day that scares you?

You mean you don’t have to?

What’s the last thing you do at night?

What is your definition of “night”?

If you could own a mythical creature (unicorn, phoenix, etc.), which one would you pick? (A nod to the soon ending 2021 A-Z Blogging Challenge, my topic this year “Mythical Creatures”)

What would be the worst “buy one get one free” sale of all time?

The past year.

Have you ever gotten a really bad haircut?  Do share! 

Never!

Isn’t Disney Land and Disney World (and all the variants) just a people trap operated by a mouse?

Goofy is the real behind the scenes genius…but you didn’t hear that from me.

What if Batman got bitten by a vampire?   What would happen? 

A better movie than The Justice League.

What do you want your final words to be if you could choose?

So long and thanks for all the fish…you know what I mean!


Blogging from A to Z Challenge: L is for… (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2021 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

I’ve revealed my theme (Photos and Stories), and once again, in spite of the best laid plans (who am I kidding, there were no plans, only aspirations) I am going to be blogging my theme letters on the fly.  So, here goes nothing!

Today, L is for Lamp, Grandma’s. Here’s a short one for you. I can’t remember when I got this lamp, but it was my mother’s mother’s lamp, an oil lamp she used to use to study by. That’s all I know about it. But I think it’s cool and while I don’t usually have a lot of sentimentality about objects, this is one I like to have out and will not hide or get rid of.

Note that I am NOT posting a picture of it lit.  The thought of lighting this lamp scares me more than you know…

Blogging from A to Z Challenge: M is for… (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2021 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

I’ve revealed my theme (Photos and Stories), and once again, in spite of the best laid plans (who am I kidding, there were no plans, only aspirations) I am going to be blogging my theme letters on the fly.  So, here goes nothing!

Today, M is for Meditation Bowl. Otherwise known as a Tibetan Singing Bowl.

Nothing sentimental here. Just your average run of the mill meditation/singing bowl complete with the wooden implement you can either use to strike it for a melodious bong or run around the rim for that singing bowl effect. I don’t use it often as I tend to meditate with an app that includes the bong as part of its package. But it has a place of honor on our mantle in the living room.

Blogging from A to Z Challenge: N is for… (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2021 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

I’ve revealed my theme (Photos and Stories), and once again, in spite of the best laid plans (who am I kidding, there were no plans, only aspirations) I am going to be blogging my theme letters on the fly.  So, here goes nothing!

Today, N is for Nordic Track. And at least, unlike so many during the past year, it does not occupy our main bedroom.  No.  The spare bedroom has become the exercise room.  I do have to say, however, this is one time I wish for a hideabed because that spare bed takes up a lot of my exercise space!!
Sometimes when you buy exercise equipment , well let’s be honest, how many of you have a treadmill clothes rack, or an elliptical stuffed in the basement or in a closet? This, however, is a classic Nordic track. The only electronics on it are the timer/mileage indicator. Everything else is manual, including amazing wooden skis. Kevin had to fix it a month or two ago as the ski treads, or something or other, broke or wore out. But you know what? There is a guy that sells fix-it-yourself parts for these things, and he was able to order them to be sent to Canada, I know. Sounds like a no brainer, but some companies in the states act like Canada is in another planet.  Anyway he sent them to us, and using some instructions Kevin was able to replace the parts and the thing works as good as new. Which is better for us since we did not by it new. It was another one of Kevin’s used Victoria purchases. But, unlike the elliptical squashed in our basement, it is something he, and occasionally me, actually uses. Here’s to Nordic track!
