Share Your World – 2015 Week #5

DSC_0007 - CopyThe Tiny Ten

Joining Cee for Share Your World. If you would like to see other Share Your World posts or link your own Share Your World just click here. Cee’s questions this week…

Do you prefer shopping or going to a park?
I would prefer going to a park any old day over shopping. I kind of like my own little park… the Tiny Ten. I like to sit under the big Oaks and have a glass of wine, read a book, watch the bluebirds, Suzy Squirrel. Maybe just daydream.


DSC_2614 - CopyIf you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why?
I would be this pair of shoes because these shoes have a good life. I just kick them off when I am on the couch and slip them on when I need to do things around the house. They just laze around. When I am not wearing my bunny slippers, these are my “go to” shoes for wearing around the house all year long. I don’t like being barefoot in the house (or anywhere else really) so easy on, easy off shoes are needed. I just slip on socks for winter and feel “oh so pretty” with my plaid boxers, sweatshirt, and my beach towel wrapped around me almost all the time… 😀 These sandals/shoes so remind me of my sweet eccentric Aunt Margie… her sandals would have been red though. Hello Suds Bunny!

What’s the story behind a time when you got locked out?
I don’t have any interesting stories of being locked out. I have been locked out of cars before and back when it was possible to unlock a car by using a hanger, I have done that. Found it to be a fun challenge. And I have had a policeman come with the fancy unlocking tool once. I can’t ever remember being locked out of the house. I have been locked in before… locked in the high school cafeteria at night after a program. That is a whole other post and I would have to check with my source, my gal pal from way back in grade school and see if that ridiculously funny time with three other gal pals really happened or I just imagined it.

Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts?
I prefer foods with no nuts in them or on them. Maybe chopped roasted almonds on a sundae. Pecan encrusted Grouper! I DO prefer without, just a couple of exceptions.

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 getting both of our vehicles waxed last week. And yes I did help. I love to wax cars. Always have… I find it very relaxing. I am looking forward to spending time with The Mama (CH’s Mom) and CH’s brother’s family this weekend. Laughter and FOOD will be the order for the day! And The Mama is getting new furniture!

Thank you Cee!

Share Your World – 2015 Week #4

It’s time to join Cee at Share Your World. This big old grouper sandwich is from Turtles on Little Sarasota Bay, Siesta Key, Florida and this sandwich is what I was looking forward to for LUNCH the next week in my last SYW post but I couldn’t say where then! So it is a little part of my answer in Cee’s bonus questions at the end of the post. Have I befuddle-muddled you yet? On to Cee’s questions for this week. Join Cee’s Share Your World with a post of your own and link back to her or if you feel all up and HAPPY, play in the comments. I would love seeing your answers.

Where did you live at age five? Is it the same place or town you live now?
I lived in a small town just south of St. Louis, Missouri. It is not the same place I live now.

You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you never met. Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself?
Yes… probably. As long as I don’t have to wear a fru fru dress.

Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?
I grew up in a small town and I mean teeny! Yes I did like it… I loved growing up there. I had a blast and had some wonderful friends. Those were the days when my gal pals and I could walk home from school and stop at the dime store lunch counter and order a big old plate of crinkle cut french fries with a blob of ketchup for dipping the fries and a fountain Coke with a squirt of cherry syrup. And because that wasn’t enough food fun we would order a scoop of chocolate ice cream with gooey marshmallow on top in a chilly cold metal serving dish. AND we didn’t give a hoot about the calories! Dang, it is always about FOOD for me.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I don’t remember thinking about that. All I wanted to do was ride horses.  For a brief time in grade school I wanted to be a nun… dying here, dying. You went to Catholic school back in the old days, they worked very hard at  trying to recruit you to join the sisterhood of nuns. I still didn’t know what I wanted to be in college and now at 63 I just want to be happy and healthy.

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 the trip to Venice, Florida and the grouper sandwich for lunch. I am looking forward to ordering a pair of BOOTS in the week coming up… I see a BOOT post in my future!

Share Your World~2015 Week 1

IMG_0194 - Copy
Joining Cee for Share Your World today. This picture has nothing to do with this post I just couldn’t do a post without a picture and this was our sunset Sunday at The Tiny Ten. I miss wine time under the Oaks! Here I go….

How do you get rid of pesky phone calls from telemarketers?
We have a landline for internet but no phone hooked up to the landline. No pesky phone calls.

What are you a “natural” at doing?
I think I am a natural at horsing around… I have loved horses since my Grandad plopped me on the back of a sweet old gray mare when I was two years old. I have had 6 horses during my life. I was not the perfect rider but I tried and I loved every minute of the trying. Kate/Kat/Kathy… You out there????

How often do you get a haircut?
Every four weeks.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “fun”?
Lunch! Having lunch out with CH. I have always enjoyed lunch with CH from way back when we were first married and he was working. When he had a day off we would head to a place for lunch where the food was great and that was fun. I still think it’s fun now even though he has been retired for seven years. It always seems to be about FOOD! Yesterday was wood-fire grilled salmon, mashed potatoes and broccoli… for our 41st Anniversary!

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 the kindness and thoughtfulness of blogging friends. I can’t say what I am looking forward to in the week coming up but you will soon find out.. 🙂 I guess I could say that I am still looking forward to LUNCH!

Thank you Cee for hosting SYW!


Share Your World~2014 Week 51

I am linking to Cee’s Photography blog for Share Your World. Each week she asks four questions with a bonus question and we get to share a little about our ourselves.

Would you prefer snowy winters, or not, and why?
I like snow in winter but I want it to just be a flurry of snow that is pretty and gone the next day.

So, you are on your way out and it’s raining. Do you know where your umbrella is or do you frantically search for it all over your apartment/house?
We have three umbrellas.. aren’t we just so prepared? Impressive. One umbrella on the wall going out to The Porch with CH’s collection of hats and one umbrella in each vehicle. We never use the umbrellas… almost never.

Do you prefer your food separated or mixed together?
I want it separated on the plate unless it is noodles or gravy on top of mashed potatoes. But each fork or spoonful has a combination of FOOD loaded on it. For the people that know me.. how shocked are you that I do not have a picture of a plate of FOOD? Just imagine a cheeseburger with melted American cheese, mayo, toasted buttered bun, and a blob of ketchup on the plate for dipping cheeseburger before each bite.

What is set on the background of your computer?
For the Holidays.. our sweet Country Cat that left us too soon in 2009.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are looking forward to in the week coming up?
Grateful last week for our family Christmas and looking forward this week to a break in Doctor’s appointments.. fingers crossed. And a glass of wine!
