share your world, i’m sharing mine

It will be interesting to see how many variations on “share your world” I can create as titles for this¬†challenge. I’ve made it part of the challenge ūüėČ ¬†This is a challenge hosted by Cee Neuner of It is four questions for you to answer each week plus a bonus question of what you are grateful for this week. Questions are in black and my answers, in purple.

Ever ran out of gas in your vehicle?     No but every other thing that can go wrong in a car, has. 

Which are better: black or green olives?     Green, pickled and stuffed.

If you were a great explorer, what would you explore? ¬† ¬† Being an explorer has a different meaning for me since I saw The Revenant with Leo di Caprio. I know Leo was a guide and not an explorer but that lifestyle doesn’t look like¬†it’s for me.¬†

I’m happy exploring anything. A new book, the park down the block, the internet, a new recipe, and the list goes on…

Quotes List: At least three of your favorite quotes?

These are the quotes that get me motivated.  

If you hear a voice within¬†you say “You cannot paint,” then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” ¬† Vincent Van Gogh

“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.” ¬† Winston Churchill

“Don’t say you don’t have enough time. ¬†You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson and Albert Einstein.” ¬† H Jackson Brown Jr.

What am I grateful for this week? ¬† ¬† I’m grateful for family, visitors, great company, good music, good food and just happy to be alive.


share your world


You may have guessed from the title and badge, what this post is going to be about. ūüôā I came across an interesting challenge on Cee’s Photography¬†and it’s called Share Your World.¬† I love the simplicity of the questions and¬†it is the inspiration for this post.

Question#1: “Regarding your fridge, is it organized or a mess inside?”

Usually my fridge is organised and I’m not very militant about cleaning the veggie drawers. Sometimes, though, the leftovers can get the better of me and then it’s usually a case of , “Houston, we have a problem.” Unfortunately Nasa is not interested in my leftover problems ūüėČ
img_4438Question#2: “Do you prefer your food separated or mixed together?”

My food is separate on my plate and enters my mouth separately but after that it is one big food party inside my mouth. Unless the food is cooked together, that is a whole different sort of party!

Question#3: “Do you prefer reading coffee table books (picture), biographies, fiction, non-fiction, educational?”

I love coffee table books for the huge hi-def pictures and glossy pages, biographies for the tantalizing tidbits of personal life that we don’t get from a newspaper and I love nonfiction and educational books for the fascinating facts that are revealed. But my preferred is a book¬†from the endless genres of fiction. My favorite of all time is Fantasy Fiction. The Hobbit, Game of Thrones, It, Watership Down and Sophie’s World are just a few examples of the books I love most of all!

Question#4: “Close your eyes. Listen to your body. What part of your body is seeking attention? What is it telling you?”

I don’t have to listen very hard and I can literally hear my hips or ankles cracking when I get up. ¬†You may have already guessed but I am not in my 20’s anymore, not even close! I’m 54, just so you don’t die of curiosity ūüėČ But back to the question, my body is telling me, “Let’s get physical, physical…i want to get physical…let’s get into physical…” so I have dusted off my, what is that thing called? Oh yeah,¬†my treadmill. ¬†I’ll just dust that off and start getting physical! I’m trying not to hear that sarcastic tone in my head¬†but without success!

Optional Weekly Question: “What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?”

I am grateful that I get to look after my granddaughter once a week for a few weeks and¬† I’m looking forward to a day trip to Montreal this week. Time spent with my children¬†and my grandchild…priceless in any week.
