Share Your World – 2016 Week 37
Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewelry?
There are likely rocks on our property, below ground, because I’ve never hit one with the lawn mower. Our neighbour has some little rocks beside his fence that spill on to our side. Are those mine now? I let the grass grow around them and am leaving it for W to take care of with the whipper snipper apparatus from hell when he gets home. I hate that thing. And how far below the surface does ones property actually extend? I should ask the property tax people. They probably have boring days which could do with some livening up.
What is your greatest strength or weakness?
The ability to zone out in a crisis. I don’t know if that’s a strength or a weakness. I think it could be either one. Usually I will go into panic mode later when it’s all over.
What makes you feel grounded?
Well that’s a hard one because I’m pretty grounded most of the time. I feel very ungrounded away from home and familiar things. What does grounded even mean? I’m relatively sensible and understand what’s important in life. I’m not a teenager or an airplane. If this was an exam question I would have just failed it spectacularly.
Would you rather never be able to eat warm food or never be able to eat cold food?
Since I am amazingly lazy in the kitchen, cold food suits me just fine. Eating stuff right out of the fridge saves a lot of time and energy. I’d miss hot soup though.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
W is on his way home today. He did some galavanting en route, stopping off to visit friends. “Galavanting” is a word my mother often used to express mild disdain for a person who wasn’t exactly grounded and went off in all directions doing dumb things. Well, I kind of made that up, I’m not sure exactly what she meant when she talked about someone off galavanting around but it didn’t sound like she found it admirable. W’s galavanting on the other hand is fine with me.
Anyway, wow, that was a ridiculous way to introduce the fact that I watched the tv show “Galavant” on Netflix. It’s a musical. Galavant is a knight. The main reason I clicked on it was because of the word Galavant. I’m grateful I did because it was quite well done and funny. You would not believe how crazy this little blurb is driving my spell check. It does not like the Galavant word one little bit.
I’m looking forward to the arrival of my sister and her family! I have no idea what to feed them because they have various dietary issues! Maybe they would all like to just eat out of my fridge!!
No, I will get my act together shortly. I have a week. W can help me. But first he better ooh and ahh about this redecorated house before he starts complaining about where the hell I put all his stuff.
