Share Your World – 2016 Week 38

Are you a hugger or a non-hugger? 

Hugger. Like big-time.

What is your least favorite Candy?

Jaw Breakers.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “fun”?

There’s no first thing – it’s more like a collage of images flashing up on my mind’s screen.

List of Favorite Smells: What smells do you love? Whether it’s vanilla scented candles or the smell of coffee in the morning or the smell of a fresh spring rain…make a list of all the things you love for a little aromatherapy.

Coney Island on a hot summer day. The combination of 40 kinds of sunscreen, salt spray, grilling hot dogs and greasy fries sizzling in the sun is heavenly.

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

Last week – A day trip to Providence, RI with my daughter Josephine. We walked, had a lovely lunch, and then took a tour bus ride.

This coming week – Don’t want to jinx it! Working on the logistics today. Stay tuned for photos.


Then and Now



My daughter Josie and son-in-law Chris – they’re simply the best.
Just the other night I snapped the now pic of them at Applebee’s. My daughter happened to have the then photo on her mobile. Well, of course, I just had to have her message it to me. They’re married twelve years now – lucky 13 coming up in ’17.

Share Your World – 2016 Week 37

Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewelry?
Wow, talk about your flashbacks; I remember when Pet Rocks made there first appearance back in ’75. A few clicks shows that they’re back!
I have never owned a pet rock, but I do have a small pinkish one I found it while walking Shadow one day. It shares space with some other favorite lil’ items on one of my treasure boxes.
Josie and I each have a little suede bag full of polished rocks; souvenirs from a trip to the Natural History Museum in DC. This is a photo of the bin we gathered them from – a regular rockapalooza.
Here’s some shells and rocks we gathered from the beach just down the road from our house.
And this rock lives at Double L’s place in North Jersey.

What is your greatest strength or weakness?
I hold up really well during tragic circumstances. I wish I could say the same about the little things; case in point; I burst into tears when I found my paid email changed to a new format. They call it an upgrade – sabotage I say!

What makes you feel grounded?
My Morning Pages.

Would you rather never be able to eat warm food or never be able to eat cold food?
What a question to ask a foodie. If I absolutely had to I would give up the cold food.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am most grateful for what happened this very moment. I was blogging to occupy myself while the hubs was in with his doctor. Everything is fine!
For the upcoming week?
Taking a day trip with my daughter this coming Friday. Stay tuned for photos🙂
