Share Your World Challenge…the ongoing once per week four questions from Cee at Cee’s Photography are perhaps the most thought-provoking of all the challenges I have found on WP. I really do look forward to them each Monday.
How do you like to spend a rainy day? It depends on HOW it is raining. Is it a gully-washer where stepping foot outside will drench you in seconds? Is it a cold rain? a warm one? Is it the soft misty rain that one would associate with Ireland? I stay inside when the rain pours down and either sew, quilt or read a book. If it is a warm misty rain then I am outside gardening. It is so much easier to pull out weeds when the soil is moist….besides, I never grew out of my desire to play in the mud.
List at least five favorite treats. (They do not have to be sugary). Fresh dates and a chunk of sharp cheddar….Sweet watermelon pickles…….a Reece’s peanut butter cup…….a mandarin orange and some dried cranberries……..an onion bagel with cream cheese. Non-food treats include a new book, a can of paint and a wall that wants to be colorful, a shabby and/or broken piece of furniture I can fix and decorate.
Where’s your favorite place to take out-of-town guests? I’ve never had out-of-town guests before. Where would I take them? It totally depends on the guests. We have a playhouse, Shakespeare in the Park, some wonderful restaurants. We also have a few extremely interesting museums. Many parks, some good fishing spots within a half hours drive.
There’s also Oklahoma City and Route 66 with all its quirky little museums and diners. We have a park where a person can ride four-wheelers through sand dunes, one where you can dig for crystals, many for fishing or boating, swimming and horseback riding.
We could go to one of the Rennaissance festivals or faires…
..or a watermelon festival….or any one of a number of small town gatherings where food and arts and crafts are located.
And if these visitors like gambling, we have hundreds of casinos in the state.
We also have some of the best Native American museums and gathering places so if these amorphous visitors are interested they could learn how to make a bow and arrows, a digging stick for planting, a wigwam or a Kiva.
…….we also have amusement parks for those that like to be scared out of their minds on a roller coaster.
I could just drive them around Enid and we could photograph the train bridges…or we could go to the cowboy museum and pretend we are train robbers on a caper. I haven’t just ONE place I would take visitors…there are hundreds of places I would want them to see..so they would understand why I love living here so very much.
You are trapped in an elevator, who would you want to be trapped with? My husband and my friend Angie. Angie for comic relief and George in case we have a medical emergency. And since I carry a screwdriver and a wrench in my purse, I’ll get us out fairly quickly.
Optional 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 to have finished the screened in front porch by adding screen doors. I was also able to rearrange the “furniture” so that it looks much larger than the true measurements. I hung lightweight outdoor curtains in the front both for privacy and to provide shade during the early morning hours.
I am greatly looking forward to receiving my social security check. It seems by the 12th of each month we are scrambling for funds for such boring things as an electric bill or gasoline for the car.
