Cee’s Share Your World for this week:
Do you prefer a bath or shower?
Generally speaking, a bath. I like to relax and soak. I also have a blood pressure issue where my blood pressure goes down when I stand for very long, which makes me lightheaded, so showering can be dodgy.
On the other hand, if I need to be quick, a very fast shower is refreshing and less time consuming than a bath.
If you had an unlimited shopping spree at only one store, which one would you choose? Why?
I don’t love shopping so that’s a tough one. I guess I’d say Joseph Beth Booksellers here in Lexington. It’s a huge independent bookstore and also has great gift items, stationary items and nice toiletries. The ability to have a book buying spree and get gifts for my friends would be nice. Plus there’s a nice cafe, so I could sit and sip a cappuccino or a chai when I get bored with shopping.
If you could be one age for the rest of your life, what age would that be?
Ooh. Tough one. I can’t say I’m in love with being old. But then I was neurotic and unhappy when I was younger. My real ideal would be to be able to be 25 but know everything I know now. With the looks I had then and the coping abilities and calm I have now, I could have taken on the world!
List at least five movies that cheer you up.
- almost anything with Shirley Temple as a young child (when she got older, not so much)
- either of the first two Harry Potters
- most of Fred and Ginger’s films. If I have to say one, maybe Top Hat though I’m also fond of Swing Time
- Cousin, Cousine — the original French one, not the pitiful American version
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
My mother’s new pain doctor has sent her to a physical therapist who seems like she’s going to try to actually figure out what would be best for Mom instead of just giving her some generic exercises and sending her on her way. She’s had so many doctors who are indifferent to older patients, I’m really grateful to finally have a doctor and a PT who both think being 90 doesn’t mean you should have no expectations of feeling good.
Don’t have anything much I’m looking forward to this week so I guess just being alive and breathing 🙂
