We have sun here today! Unfortunately, I’ve got a sick kid in the house again. Just as Michael started recovering from the cold from hell, Daniel came down with it. It’s nice to have them home, but I hate to see them sick. And I’d really like to get out with my new camera. So far, I’ve only had flowers and cats to take pictures of and both have been frustrating. My new camera shoots macros with the lens fully extended, which is going to take some getting used to, and my cats don’t know the meaning of the word stay. The second I squat down to their level, they come toward me. I guess that’s the downside of having cat magnetism!
When I saw Cee’s Share Your World post yesterday, I thought she had to be mixed up. How can it be the third week of the year already? It looks like 2015 is fixing to fly by as fast as 2014, which I am totally not cool with. I would like time to slow down just a bit!
Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest? The Dalai Lama. I think being in his presence would be so inspiring. Just seeing a picture of him makes me smile. Of course, I would have to have the dinner catered…at someone else’s house!
When did you last sing to yourself? To someone else? I last sang You Are My Sunshine to my cat Frosty when Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge brought back memories of how I used to sing that to him. I don’t think he likes it any more though. I have a horrible singing voice and Frosty is less forgiving about things like that now that he’s a grumpy old man cat.
If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be? At first I was going to say hands on healing but then one of my squirrels showed up with half its tail cut off and I decided to change my answer to distance healing. I wish I could heal everyone’s pain, especially animals. It breaks my heart to see them suffering.
What, if anything, is too serious to be joked about? In general, I think abuse, domestic violence and extreme suffering are too serious to be joked about. In my life, I don’t feel anything is too serious to joke about, but it depends on who is doing the joking. If a joke is coming from a humble person who can laugh at themselves, or at least admit their own flaws, I find it funny. When a joke comes from someone who only jokes about or criticizes other people and never themselves, I just get annoyed. I tend to avoid people who only make fun of or criticize others and I’ve unfollowed many blogs for the same reason. I guess what it really comes down to is the spirit in which the joke is made.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? Last week I was grateful that I was able to take care of Michael when he was sick last week. He’s graduating high school this year and I may not have many more opportunities to make him tea and soup when he’s sick. 😦
This week I’m looking forward to my shipment from Vitacost getting here with my Ceriva. I’ve been out for a couple of weeks and the mental fatigue has returned. It’s expensive stuff ($35 for a month’s supply) but it makes enough of a difference to be worth it, especially if I have to drive.
