Share Your World 2013: Week 1

 

Cee is starting 2013 off with some fascinating questions… food for thought.

1.  Do you prefer shopping or going to a park?  How about shopping while at the park?  No?  Then I prefer going to the park as of late.  Best photo ops there.

2.  Music or silence while working?  Depends on the  mood, but I like music for the first few hours at work, then silence in the afternoon till quitting time.

3.  If you could have three wishes granted for you alone, what would they be?  Tough one!  Most would wish for better health, more money etc., but that’s all in God’s hands.  It may sound corny, but my first wish would truly be world peace.  This place is going to hell in a hand-basket, and I’m afraid to see what’s going to happen each day I wake up!  Next wish would be to feel joy ~ I’ve been through so much crap in my life, I’m not sure what true joy would feel like.  My third wish would be to have three more wishes!

4.  Are you a collector of anything?  Ummmm, yes… a few things.  Office supplies.  May sound weird, but I like designer file folders, staplers, mouse pads, etc.   *Confessions of an Office Accessory Junkie*    Since I’m an avid quilter, I do *collect* quilting fabric, piles of it!  I also collect Siamese cat memorabilia, state spoons and ceramic/metal collectable bells.

Thanks for starting the year off right, Cee!

Share Your World Week 51

This week’s thought-provoking and revealing questions from Cee’s Photography

  1. Your most favorite fiction book?  Has to be “Black Beauty” by Anna Sewell.  I’ve always been a horse lover and this story has always fascinated me.

  2. What one thing you miss about being a kid? Carefree summer vacations.  Summers off from school seemed to last forever for me.  I remember laying in the cool grass under our maple trees watching a warm breeze move through the leaves and branches.  We had a small hill in our yard, that seemed big to us as children, and we’d start at the top and roll down over and over until we were dizzy.  Catching fireflies at night and keeping them in a jar and watching them blink until you fall asleep.

  3. If you were an ice cream cone how many scoops and flavors would you be and why?  I’d be chocolate ice cream (a classic) and only a couple of scoops.  Just enough for a “child size” to enjoy, otherwise I might get thrown into the trash if there’s too much left over.  More importantly, I’d like to have one of those “flavored” cones with the flat bottom.  They used to come in chocolate, red and green as well as the “standard” one shown here.

  4. What was one of your first moneymaking jobs (other than babysitting or newspaper delivery)?  I was lucky enough to be at the top of my class in high school as far as the business courses I took.  In my senior year, I was “teacher’s pet” of the business director, so when she was asked to recommend a student for an open part-time position as Receptionist at the school’s district offices, she recommended me and I got the job.  I started working during my lunch hour to cover the full-time Receptionist’s lunch hour, and after school.  Then I went on to substitute for the high school’s secretary over summer vacation (no fireflies THAT summer!) and other various temp positions throughout the school district.
