Share Your World 2016 #35

Welcome to another segment of Cee’s Share Your World. If you would like to play along, click on this link.

List 2 things you have to be happy about? 

  1. Coffee, which gets me up in the morning.
  2. Good books, which unfortunately sometimes lull me to sleep at night. (Current read is Breakfast with Buddha. Have you read it?)

If you could take a photograph, paint a picture or write a story of any place in the world, what and where would it be?

If it was a picture or a painting, I would choose any of our beautiful national parks. The Yosemite Valley from Glacier Point is beautiful. I might try to capture the Grand Tetons reflected in  Jackson Lake. I would love to successfully capture the grandeur and immensity of the Grand Canyon, especially with a lightning strike.

If I were to write a story, I’d pick the bustling, varied city of San Francisco.

Should children be seen and not heard?

We’ve all heard the phrase, out of the mouths of babes. Children have a certain unfiltered wisdom. They’ve not yet learned to cover up, to hide their vulnerabilities.

I mean, who doesn’t love this?

Children, like everyone else, should be seen and heard.

List at least five of your favorite first names.

Other than the names of my loved ones…

  1. Lily
  2. Alex
  3. Olivia
  4. Sarah
  5. Audrey

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

I’m grateful for trees full of apples. Last week was spent canning applesauce and drying the bounty from our rather small Granny Smith apple tree. There are a couple more small trees that need to be harvested. They are recent additions to the property. It will be interesting to see what happens in a few years. I think we might need to invest in a cider press.

I look forward to school/work starting up again. All my best laid plans didn’t pan out over the summer. Too much free time is not a good thing.

Again, thanks to Cee for hosting this fun challenge!
