Happy Monday and welcome to week five of Cee’s Share Your World Challenge!
Do you prefer shopping or going to a park? I definitely prefer going to a park. I like being outside and I don’t like how close people crowd around each other in stores. Yesterday we went to Target and Trader Joe’s and having people in such close proximity to me just about drove me out of my mind. Needing a large sphere of personal space is just one more way that I’m like a cat!
If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why? With all the rainy days we’ve got in our forecast, I think a rubber boot would be a good shoe to be. They’re waterproof and you can tuck your pant legs in so they don’t drag in the mud. I wore mine this morning.
What’s the story behind a time when you got locked out? When I was seventeen, my step-dad found a wine cooler cap in the console of my car. He grounded me and took my car away so I had to ride the bus to school. Since I didn’t need my car keys and I didn’t think to take a house key, I got home to an empty, locked house. I was frantic. It was a damp, chilly day and I was wearing a silky shirt, a skirt and high-heeled red pumps. My parents weren’t going to be home for several hours so I went to the barn and tried to get comfy in the hay. It was cold, itchy and uncomfortable so I worked up a good rage about how this was all my step-dad’s fault for taking my car away. I took a stick of firewood and smashed the doorknob. Then I went inside and called my mom at work to tell her we needed a new one. I was in more trouble but I wasn’t sorry. I could be a very defiant little brat.
Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts? I like nuts but I don’t like them in foods. In my opinion, there’s no quicker way to ruin a good batch of brownies or loaf of zucchini bread than putting walnuts in them.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I am grateful for the nice weather we had last week. This week I’m just looking forward to any time that I get to sit on the couch with my heat wrap on my back. Between the wet, gloomy weather and the all-over body ache I’ve got going on, I’m not feeling too optimistic about the week ahead.
