Cee has some wonderful challenges. I wish more people would go check her out and see how she makes us think…I am having a wonderful time going through the various challenges! Share your world (my answers are in Black)
If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would you get? Brussel sprouts. I know it may seem a crazy thing to want but I have completely fallen in love with the veg. It all started with a recipe I saw on a fellow blogger’s site.. FonduFondue..a lovely young ballerina who shares recipes. She had a very simple recipe for them..a sort of stir fry. It brought them to my attention and I have been tweaking it daily. Adding this, taking out that..and now I have a dozen ways of fixing them that are all equally good. Since I must eat three times as many veg as anything else with every meal (diabetes) it is nice to have one that I absolutely adore.
What is the worst thing you ate recently? Nothing really. I am a good cook and rarely muck up a recipe. I try not to eat out (too much money spent, can’t control portion size). ..and if eating at a friend’s home the food is always good. My friends are great cooks actually. Now if the question was the “worst thing for me” it would be two helpings of my birthday cake.
You are comfortable doing nothing? For long stretches of time? I sort of stink at doing nothing. I start to feel as if I am being lazy, and I can not abide being lazy. Oh I can sit on the front porch watching the world go by for hours, but that isn’t doing “nothing’ it is recharging my soul for another week. I am not a person that has to be constantly doing “something”…I do tend to get chores done whenever I have the gumption to do so, but I will have a book to read or a project to work on that takes up time.
List of Jobs You Think You Might Enjoy: Even if you aren’t thinking about a career change, it can be fun to think of other jobs you might enjoy.
This is strange to see this now. Just yesterday I was considering applying for a teaching position at one of the middle schools. They are in rather desperate need of Maths teachers and I adore math. I also adore the kids at that age..between 11 and 14. They are smart enough and educated enough to carry on a conversation and not yet so spoiled by a public education that they are a danger to themselves or others.
I KNOW I would make a wonderful prosecutor..only problem there is I have zero desire to go through law school. If I could be one without the school, I would do it in a minute.
I’d make a darned good Judge. Except Judge Judy has the perfect job and I would want hers.
I’d also like to be a jockey. I adore horses and having a job riding them would be marvelous. My back and my arthritis might object but I think it would be worth the pain to be able to ride everyday.
I most want to be a professional traveler..much like the kids on Globe Trotter. What a great life..going to foreign countries and immersing oneself in the culture and history while telling others all about it. THIS would be my dream job.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Each week for me is pretty much the same. I am grateful for my friends and family (the one I have created for myself that is). I am grateful that I continue to wake up in the mornings, that I have the energy to do housework..I actually enjoy some of it. The one thing that most pleased me last week was the purchase and installation of an electric dryer. I still find myself hanging my sheets and clothing outside but for the first time in years I have soft fluffy towels instead of stiff and scratchy ones. I am looking forward to the local kids going back to school next week. They are fun, they are charming…they are NOISY! I am looking forward to several hours of uninterrupted porch sitting…time to NOT have to look up and check that the screams coming from the next door neighbors house are NOT due to a mass invasion or an armed incursion…that the squeeling is due to a child playing and NOT an animal in excruciating pain..blessed silence except for birds chirping and the wind in the leaves on my oak tree. THAT is what i am looking forward to.
