For your blog do you basically use Windows or Mac, laptop, desktop, pad, or phone?
I use a desktop computer furnished with Windows for most of my blogging fun. I cannot easily compose or otherwise format material on my Android tablet, but it comes in handy for reading and the occasional comment.
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I remember the day I made the announcement that I wanted to be a teacher. I was enchanted by the classroom decor – the pictures mounted all around the room, above the blackboards. I was particularly taken by the roll-up map.
About thirty years later, as part of my DSW training, I had the chance to work in a classroom, supporting children with learning disabilities. My first day at the public school, I followed the children from the school yard into the classroom. It was like I had fallen into a time warp: echoing chatter and giggles, the smell of industrial strength floor cleaner, little feet clomping on hardwood floors. Did you know that little kids have a signature smell? They do! Especially in large flocks. The sensations almost overpowered me and I had to fight back tears.
Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?
I suppose my hometown qualifies as a big town. Certainly not a big city. Did I like it? It took me a long time, as in decades, to become aware of and appreciate my surroundings. I prefer smaller towns today.
How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
Thirty to forty on good days. When my back acts up, though, 1002.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful for last week’s spell of summer-like weather. I cleaned up the yard a bit and prepared the veggie patch for spinach and snap peas. Take a look at what greeted us this morning.
This week, as in today, I am part of the Blogging 201 event. I’m looking forward to meeting new folks and hope to learn something new.
