I just found a blog that has a “Share Your World Sunday” where each week Cee challenges us with four questions so we can get to know each other better. This is my first time to participate, but here goes.
1. How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
That is a very tough question to answer. My body does seem to be feeling all of its 66 yrs., but my mind and outlook seem a lot younger. That being said, I have learned a lot, especially in the last few years, and I wouldn’t want to have to do that again so I think I’ll just stay right where I am. I know a lot of ages I wouldn’t ever want to be again, and I think I’m fine right where I am, and yes, even if no one told me, I would know I am a senior citizen!
2. What is the kindest thing anyone has done for you?
Again, this is tough, as I have experienced many kind acts along the way, but the greatest one I can think of currently is my friend Kay’s willingness to come twice a day to help me give medicines and fluids to my sweet cat Sasha, which Kay has been doing since September, 2011! If it weren’t for Kay, I doubt that Sasha would still be with me, and she is now making enormous health gains and I treasure our time together, all thanks to Kay!
3. What was your favorite childhood television program?
Gads, these aren’t getting any easier are they. I remember the Howdy Doody Show as one of my earliest favorites and then there was Leave it to Beaver and Donna Reed, and The Lone Ranger, and Gilligan’s Island. I guess that is enough.
4. Which cooking utensil (other than the usual pots and pans etc) would you miss the most?
Ok, finally an easy one. I don’t cook so I probably wouldn’t miss much. It isn’t a utensil, but I would miss my freezer as I keep a lot of Amy’s frozen dinners on hand and I would miss my InstaHot as I make endless cups of tea and ramen that way. I used to feel like a failure for not being a good cook, but now I just figure that with my limited energies, I’d rather do something else like writing or quilting so I don’t worry about it.
You too can have fun with this if you visit Share Your World Sunday! Have a lovely day and Happy Earth Day! May we all be more careful of our delicate planet.
