I love Mondays. That’s when I have this challenge of Cee’s to look forward to. It’s also usually the start of George having three days off in a row..alas, not this week. He had the weekend off so it is back to work for him tonight. But I digress. On to the challenge!
List 2 things you have to be happy about? I live in Enid. And I am still breathing. I am not being facetious either. I seriously have never been happier in my life than i have been since moving to Enid, Oklahoma. I have amazing neighbors, wonderful friends, a nice house, a happy husband. What more could I possibly want? And the fact that I am still breathing? Every day has been a gift since my heart attack. I died. Yes, i actually did die and a wonderful surgeon brought me back. Each and every day since then has been a gift, and if I awaken I try very hard to see the good in the day.
granted I rant and rage about politics, religious zealots, incompetent boobs! BUT, I am so dratted happy that I am still here to do so. the rages, rants, etc only last until I can write them down then dissipate into the mists.
Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewelry? Yes, actually. When I was a child I had a rock “collection” of semi-precious stones. It was a gift from my grandmother. As an adult, I also have a few special rocks…one from the top of Mt Musa, Egypt
…the mountaintop from which Moses saw the promised land. I have one from the base of the wall separating Jerusalem into Palestine and Israeli halves.
I have one from the Red Sea, one from the Mediterranean, one from a beach on the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. But, the most special rock I own was given to me by Jake…..Jake is a poodle.
He is “owned” by my friend Angela, and Jake never gives anyone anything. Except, Jake has given me two small sticks and a rock. they are in my antique display case in a place of pride.
Are you a hugger or a non-hugger?
I am a hugger. I admit it. I hug everyone…unless they are putting out don’t touch me vibes.
What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
My neighbors. I appreciate them enormously. Always ready to help out at the drop of a hat.
