Sharing My World 59


Share Your World – 2016 Week 34

What is your favorite comfort snack food?

Chips.  I will even snack on the ones I don’t like (ketchup, barbecue, salt and vinegar, anything extra spicy) simply for the salty taste.  Well, it’s not sugar, is it?  But still bad for you.  I don’t know why I crave salt.  And I wish I could truthfully say fruit and raw vegetables are my favourite, because they’re great and I love them, just not the way I love sour cream and onion or all dressed or nacho chips.  It’s kind of like being drawn to the Fonz in high school when you know Richie would be the smarter choice.

Is the paper money in your possession right now organized sequentially according to denomination and with the bills right side up and facing the same way?

I had a five dollar bill and a handful of change in my purse but I gave it to my daughter the other day because she had a flat tire in my driveway and had to call AMA to get it changed and then the spare tire needed air and apparently you need change for those air machines.  The AMA guy was nice enough to follow her to the nearest gas station and help her out with that too so that she could drive home.

So the answer to the question is – there is no paper money in my possession right now.  There very rarely is because I use bank cards for everything.  But if there was, YES, it would be that anally organized.  Anyone who has ever worked with cash knows that’s what you have to do with it if you want to sleep at night.

If you were a mouse in your house in the evening, what would you see your family doing?

Snacking on chips.  That would be just me since I’m the only one here at the moment and no one is around to give me disapproving looks about my snack choices.  I need to stop buying those stupid things.  Also if I’m not moving furniture and various messes around I am doing important stuff on my iPad.

Would you rather not be able to read or not be able to speak?

I can go for days without speaking, except for the occasional expletive when some redecorating procedure goes wrong.  Then when I do talk on the phone or in person my voice sounds all weird and hoarse until I get it going again.  So as long as there’s texting and emails I guess it would be no great loss for me to give up speaking.  I do say some pretty stupid boring things.  But give up reading?  I hope that never happens.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Another room is finished!  But just when it looks like the redecorating phase of my summer is nearing completion,  (two bedrooms to go), I decide to rip up the master bedroom carpet.  I hope this helps to explain my latest absence.  I also got the last stipple ceiling scraped off and chucked out.   And I moved three bookcases and a gazillion books into the space that is now no longer my art room.  Because the art room is moving to a new space in the master bedroom now that there’s so much space in there with the books gone and a smaller dresser and no dust collecting monster headboard.  But this latest rearrangement has to wait until the room is all painted and the floor is tiled.  Or something is done to the floor.  At the moment the bare sub floor is looking better than the carpet ever did.


So that’s my jumbled up upside down world to date.  I need some chips.

  1. Lay’s slogan “Bet you can’t eat just one …” They must have had me in mind. But I’m very particular about the brand/style. Lay’s regular is the only one for me. Also Cape Cod kettle chips. Irresistible. ☺

  2. I love the comparison of Fonz and Richie to yummy snacks and healthy snacks. For snacking, I’d definitely chose the Fonz, but I had enough sense to marry Richie. It’s great fun having your posts to read again. By the way, Do you read the Canadian author, Louise Penny. I just discovered her and am devouring her series.

    • I think I married Potsie…😄 Yes I’ve read some Louise Penny mysteries! It always amazes me when an author can write so many books and stay interesting. I have maybe one story in me somewhere and will probably never write it down.


  3. What you call chips, we call crisps. But they are the same thing. I have a craze for chips too. I prefer chips over anything else. I will even eat the flavours I don’t like, like prawn cocktail or salt and vinegar. There is something so satisfying about that salty, flavourful crunch. Your bookshelf looks amazing!

    • I like that there’s no preparation involved. Rip open the bag and there you go. Yes, it’s kind of a sad but thoroughly enjoyable addiction. I’m glad I decided to bring my bookshelves out of hiding. There’s another one across from these, and two more in another bedroom. I got rid of a lot of books in our yard sale, believe it or not. Hardly made a dent in them.

      • I am glad you did too! Those poor books being kept from the eyes of the world 🙂 In my opinion all books should be kept, unless they are a danger to your physical wellbeing 😛
