And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/04/08/share-your-world-4-8-19/).

Pictures, thousands of words…

What does a successful relationship look like to you?

If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport, what would you have a good chance at winning medal for?

What do you wish you knew more about?

What is better in your opinion – asking for forgiveness or permission?

GRATITUDE QUESTION

What’s the best thing about your life right now?

Share Your World – March 25, 2019

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/03/25/share-your-world-3-25-19/).

What is the best pick me up that you know of?  To shake you out of the blues?

What would be the title of your memoir?

Told you.

Where do you like to go when you eat out?

Anyplace that doesn’t make us cook or clean up after!

Do you believe in luck?

Luckily for me, I do.

Gratitude Question:  Aside from necessities, what is one thing you couldn’t go a day without?

Share Your World – March 18, 2019

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/03/18/share-your-world-3-18-19/).

Do You Have Any Guilty Pleasures?

Yes…yes I do.

What Is The Worst Pick Up Line You Ever Heard?

Can you pick up my dry-cleaning on the way home?

What Slang Or Trend Makes You Feel Old?

Anything that’s trendy today makes me feel old…

What Do You Consider The Most Over-rated Song?

Anything by Barbra Streisand (sorry Jill.)

Instead of a Tender Mercies question, here’s a philosophical one instead:

You Find A Book And Begin To Read Only To Discover That It Is Your Life. You Get To The Point That You Are At Now, Do You Turn The Page Knowing That You Will Not Be Able To Change The Events To Come?

Considering I’m the kind of person who goes to the last page of a book to make sure I am ok with continuing on, yes – but only with a bottle of wine, a fire burning, and kitties nearby!

Share Your World – March 4, 2019

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/03/04/share-your-world-3-4-19/).

What’s the first thing you notice about a person?

Oh no – there’s a person there!

What three habits do you feel would improve someone’s life?

Eating bacon, loving kittens, eating bacon…did I say that already?

What takes up too much of your time?   Would you stop that if you could?

Work.  Work takes up way too much of my time!  I mean, I could be blogging, or petting kittens, or eating bacon.

Cookies (biscuits to those elsewhere), pastries, pie or cake?   If not, what does your sweet tooth crave?

Bacon – that’s sweet, isn’t it??

Gratitude?  Are You Happy?  If so, why?  If not, why not?

As long as there are kittens and bacon…and wine….especially after spending all of that time at work…

Share Your World – February 25, 2019

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/02/25/share-your-world-2-25-19/).

What, in your opinion, is the point to life?

Kittens.

What was your most recent lie?  You don’t have to get really specific obviously.

I never lie… Guess that was my most recent one…

What country do you consider the strangest?   (it’s all In fun folks, ALL countries may seem strange to outsiders)

Countries aren’t strange.  Orange presidents are strange…

What’s your funniest story involving a car?

Me trying to get out of a Maserati sports car at the Alfa Romeo dealership.  There’s a reason people my age drive SUVs…


GRATITUDE

Do you have something you’re very thankful for or that showed immense kindness toward yourself or someone?

 

 

Share Your World – January 14, 2018

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/01/14/share-your-world-1-14-19/).

You’re walking in a forest and you find a black suitcase.  Inside it is one millions dollars and a piece of paper, stained in blood and bearing the single word “Don’t!”  Would you take the suitcase home or leave it?

Why would I want the suitcase?

Imagine you lapsed and cheated on your partner. You feel horrible and you know you’ll never do it again, because the feeling is so awful. Would you confess?

I am imagining the word “diet” where it says “partner”.  And now I don’t feel awful.  So, much better!

Would you live your life differently if nobody ever judged you for anything you did?

Are people judging me?  What???

Would a fly without wings be called a walk? No? What would you call it?

Dead.

What’s something that brought joy and lightness of being to you this past week?

It’s a long story…

Share Your World – January 7, 2018

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/01/07/share-your-world-1-7-19/).

Did you have to help out with chores when you were growing up?  If so, what were you assigned to do?

Yes.  I don’t want to talk about it.

Have you ever researched your family tree?   What do you know about your family’s roots? 

I haven’t, but I have uncles and aunts who have.  I know enough, but not too much…I think I should be safe for awhile.

What’s your cure for hiccups?

You mean you can cure them (hic!)??

What makes you roll your eyes every time you hear it?  Either figuratively or literally?

You really don’t want to know…although some of you probably already do

Finally:  Share a gratitude or positive moment or experience from 2019 so far.

Knowing that spring is on its way!

 

Share Your World – November 26, 2018

Share Your World has moved!  Cee (https://ceenphotography.com/2018/08/30/changes-in-my-challenges/) has handed over the reins to Sparks from a Combustible Mind (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/).  And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2018/11/26/share-your-world-11-26-18/).

If your five year old self woke up in your current body, what would happen, what would you say?

What do you mean, “if”?

What is a relationship deal breaker for you?  Whether you are talking about a romantic one, a friendship or a related to sort of relationship?

Bacon.

Is there something out there, a thought, an idea, a current event, or a fear that you find deeply unsettling?

Yes…many…

And one that is a bit whimsical:  If you were arrested with no explanation, what would your friends and family assume you had done?

So many choices…

Finally, what were you grateful for this week?  Something that brought some joy into your world?

A Santa Clause parade with no rain…very joyful!

Share Your World – November 12, 2018

What’s the most ironic thing you’ve ever witnessed?

That’s a hard one, ’cause I feel like I experience irony on a daily basis.

Let’s talk turkey.  Pro or con?   If pro, which part do you enjoy most?  Is it for Thanksgiving (American Style any way) only?

I don’t understand the question.  Is there a con?  When would you NOT want to eat turkey (unless you are vegan/vegetarian…I’ll give you that)?

If you’d like, share one thing you wish you’d said to someone else, but now you’ll never have the chance.

Excelsior!

What odd smell do you really enjoy?

When you think about it, aren’t all smells kind of odd?

Thankful November….share a story or time when someone did something really great for you.  Alternatively,  share your gratitude moments during this past week.

What I am grateful for this past week was having a week at work that was almost good enough to make me happy to be there.  Almost.  Which is a huge leap forward from the past 4 years.  That and kitties in front of the fire.

Share Your World – November 5, 2018

Share Your World has moved!  Cee (https://ceenphotography.com/2018/08/30/changes-in-my-challenges/) has handed over the reins to Sparks from a Combustible Mind (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/).  And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2018/11/05/share-your-world-11-5-18/).

Is there one post on your site that is really special to you? 

Nope.  I love them all the same!

How Do You Deal With Negative People? 

I roll my eyes a lot…

What Is The First Thing You Think Of When You Wake In The Morning?

Wonder why I have to wake up in the morning.

Would You Rather Be Able To Talk With The Animals Or Speak All Foreign Languages?

Questions like this puzzle me, since neither is possible.  Although, I think being able to talk to animals would be much more productive than expanding the ways I have to communicate with humans.

November is a month in which many people give thanks.  America (and other countries) celebrate an actual Thanksgiving Day. For example, Canada celebrates this in October.  This month the gratitude question will address your life and what things you’ve received or done, that have brought you joy and sometimes relief perhaps. What small thing happened today (or in the past few days) that you were grateful for?   

My photography class, which I am going to in a few minutes, followed by Kevin making dinner!  🙂

Soon….
