Wow, the weeks are going by so quickly, it seems! Time for another Share Your World!
When you cut something with scissors, do you move your jaw (as if you were about to chew)?
Don’t think so. And this week, I’m not running to the mirror to check.
Do you chew your pens and pencils?
I used to, along with my fingernails and cuticles and hair. Finally stopped all of the above, oh, maybe twenty-five years ago. Though, during times of stress, you might see my cuticles looking a little war-torn.
Are you a collector of anything? If so what?
Oh, well, if you haven’t already heard, I collect mineral specimens.
Up until I met my geologist mineral-collecting hubby, though, I was pretty snooty about collecting stuff. I couldn’t fathom the desire to amass a bunch of “things” that required shelf space, and more importantly, that required dusting. Nor could I justify the expense of a collection.
So, how do I reconcile those concerns these days? As regards the cost, we trade or sell our excess to finance the hobby. Very little is on display since most of the specimens are kept in small inch-and-a-quarter acrylic boxes in cabinets – which HE dusts.
What size is your bed?
Queen. With the move, we downsized from a two-twins-together-king and I don’t miss that gully that ran down the middle.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last week, more specifically, this past weekend, we’ve had some fabulous, unseasonably warm weather and loads of sunshine. I’m grateful for the chance to get out and walk along some new trails.
This week, I look forward to resisting the urge to feel jealous about the fact that folks back in Southern Ontario are riding their bikes, taking in a round of golf, and otherwise enjoying spectacular and unheard of spring-time weather for mid – FEBRUARY!?
By way of sour grapes, I will remind myself that gardens and yards look terrible in the early spring, all muddy and ragged and brown. It’s folly to even consider tidying up, or raking, or otherwise tending to a yard, which does not look nearly as nice as our snow-covered expanses under piercing blue skies.
Whaddya think? Do you buy it?
