I’ve been neglecting this blog for a long time now and, without ever intending to, drifted away from posting for Cee’s Share Your World. So I’m doing the last two weeks, starting with the August 13 prompt.
A class you wish you would have taken?
Occasionally, in a moment of madness, I wish I’d taken physics so I could understand quantum physics better. But then I remember how much I disliked science in school. My high school let us choose between math and science after 9th grade biology and, while I really didn’t like math either, I chose it.
Are you scared of heights?
Yes. It’s hard to say how much. I’ve done trust falls and walked across suspension bridges and taken ski lift rides, all of which are supposed to end the fear and nothing ever changed it. I can barely even get on a stepladder to change a light bulb if I’m not also close to something to hang onto…
Are you a good cook? If so, do you consider yourself a chef?
I’m a pretty good cook and have, to my surprise, developed a reputation that has spread beyond the people for whom I’ve actually cooked… Quite a few people have mentioned it or dropped hints they’d like to sample something I make. But no, I don’t think I’ve ever developed a talent level that qualifies me as “chef”.
And Share Your World for August 20:
Which tastes better: black or green olives?
What’s your favorite room in your home?
Our sun porch, without question.
What fictional family would you be a member of?
If we’re talking T.V., I’d say the Camdens of 7th Heaven — always trying to walk the talk of love and kindness.
In movies, I’d say it would be fun to be related to Nick and Nora Charles of the Thin Man movies.
As far as novels, so many I read involve dysfunctional or broken families… hmm. Well, the Marches of Little Women — the cleaned up, idealized version of the Alcotts… — might be good. Aside from the 19th century, no appliances, no plumbing, no cars, no internet thing 🙂
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
The prediction has been for seemingly ceaseless rain for a week but we’ve actually had a few breaks. We managed to get out yesterday to pick up some hold books from the library (always makes me happy to have a new pile of books to read) and go to our favorite Indian place for dinner in sunshine. Books, sunshine and chicken tikka masala — hard to beat that.
