Share Your World – June 11th and 18th, 2018

Where has this week gone! And where has the first half of the year gone! Crazy that we already reached winter / summer solstice, don’t you think? In any case it’s definitely time for my Share Your Wold post. I simply can’t ignore Cee’s great questions any longer (not that I tried to…). So here we go:

Share Your World – May 14th, 2018

Complete this sentence: This sandwich could really use some …
Seasoning, toasting, some avocado, some herbs and a bit of lime juice… Thanks for the effort but do you mind if I re-assemble it 😉

What is your least favorite candy?
We bought a jelly bean “game” recently who had good ones in it and then the vomit, dog food, nappies, boogers and other off flavored ones… needless to say that I was not fond of them (and that most of us felt sick after playing it…)

What sign are you? Do you believe in astrology?
Yes, I totally do. I believe that the zodiac is the tool set we are equipped with when we are born. What we make of it is then up to us and all the influences from the outside but we will always have the specific tool set. I do believe that the alignment of stars has an impact on us. Is it an excuse for bad behavior? No. But it definitely influences us.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 
I appreciate being flexible and able to spend my time with my family and friends. I will not share the link to my recent Tell Me Something Good post as I was not very cheerful. It happens. It’s better today and I appreciate the laughter we shared today, the happy faces and watching my children learn…

Share Your World – 30th April, 2018

It’s been a gorgeous fall day once again today, a bit hazy in the morning but then beautiful and clear for the rest of the day. I took the dogs on a walk in our old neighborhood, the area we lived in right after we moved. It was so beautiful and almost a bit emotional in a way. Our son was so little back then and our daughter was born while we lived there. I went to one of the dog parks we used to go to a lot and there was a little memory sitting behind every corner of this park. So many little smiles on my face while I was doing my rounds.

The world doesn’t stop turning and time doesn’t slow down. In moments like those though, it seems like you’ve been taken right back to those little moments although it all is so very different.

Anyway… it’s Tuesday again and for me this means time for Cee’s amazing Share Your World Challenge. So let’s get to answering some questions, shall we…

#atozchallenge – C for Cee’s Challenge

… or the Share Your World Challenge. Cee is amazing. She poses questions after questions for us week after week. And by answering them we share our piece of world with everyone. Now please excuse me for the way this post comes across and I promise I will edit but I’m posting from my phone right now and the app is sort of… well, let’s say temperamental…

While I’m typing this I think about how “small” the world can be nowadays. It’s so easy to stay in touch with someone you randomly meet and like. Just a couple of years ago it took so much more…

So here are Cee’s questions for this week and my answers:

What was or is your favorite cartoon?

I always loved the Road Runner although now, thinking back, I find it pretty brutal…

Which cooking utensil (other than the usual pots and pans etc) would you miss the most?

Oh, wow, that’s a hard one… does a coffee machine count? Maybe my hand mixer? Other than that definitely my frying pan and the kettle. Otherwise I think I could play along with whatever is around…

Would you dare to sleep in haunted house overnight?

Oh hell no! See that’s the kind of stuff I don’t deal well with. Do not give me ghosts!!! Not in the way we think about them!!! No Poltergeist, please!!!

Right now I appreciate not having to stay in a Poltergeist house! Oh my! That really creeps me out! So excuse me when I say that I focus on the sunset for now and really appreciate the beauty of nature…

Share Your World – March 26th, 2018

It’s that time of the week again, the time to answer some random questions and I’m so ready for it. Let’s see what Cee has in store for us this week…

What is your favorite color of hair? You can name your hair color or a color that you just like.

Well, I love my hair but I have to say that there is a black-brown that I think is simply stunning. The colour Polynesian women have. The other day though I spotted an older lady. She had so much grace to herself and elegance. And her hair was of a silver grey, a dark silver grey. It looked so beautiful. I couldn’t help but approach her to ask if it’s her natural colour and it turned out to be. To be honest, for me it’s not the colour of hair that makes me look. It’s how full and healthy and shiny it looks.

List at least 5 things that you are good at.

Wow, see, those are the kind of questions I struggle answering. What am I good at…? I think I’m good at starting a conversation with random people. I can take decent pictures and I think I’m an okay mother and wife. And I hope I’m a good friend.

What is your favorite animal or type of animal? (pets, dolphins, stuffed, wild cats, etc)

Where to start… I love horses. I love dogs. I love cats. I really like lizards. I’m in awe of whales and dolphins. I love watching the flying fox fly past our house at the same time every evening or watch the possum balance over the branches and making the dogs go nuts. I would say I love all animals. All of them but flies and mosquitoes…

I appreciate being able to spend so much time with my family. But that’s nothing new for you. What I also appreciate is being able to work while spending time with them…
