Cee’s Share Your World this week:
When you’re alone at home, do you wear shoes, socks, slippers, or go barefoot?
Depends on time of year. In cold weather I wear LL Bean thermal socks; I tend to have cold feet so I need WARM. I prefer the socks to slippers because I like the greater freedom of movement. In warmer weather I alternate between barefoot and yoga sandals. My feet are pretty tender, so often the sandals for moving around and barefoot for sitting.
What was your favorite food when you were a child?
Peanut butter. I had a spell at one point when I was 6 or 7 where I ate nothing but bread with peanut butter on it.
Are you a listener or talker?
Varies with circumstances. One on one, I’m a talker and, since I spend too much time alone, I’m afraid I often talk too much. In groups I tend to sit and listen without participating much. I’ve been working on my right listening skills for years, but I’m far from the excellent listener I’d like to be (it’s not helped by the fact that I don’t take in or process oral information very well).
Favorite thing to (pick one): Photograph? Write? Or Cook?
Lately my favorite thing to cook is granola. It’s easy to put together. The house smells fabulous for hours. I’ve never bought a granola of any sort anywhere that was as good. Plus it uses only maple syrup so no white sugar is involved and it’s not as sickeningly sweet as many store-bought granolas. See my recipe.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Had a cold last week but got rid of it quickly thanks to Chinese herbal gan mao ling, so I’m grateful for quick healing — and the herbs :-). This week I’m looking forward to finishing a writing project and getting it off my to-do list.
