It’s cold and wet here in the Puget Sound region. Only 45 degrees here this morning and it’s been snowing up in the mountains. It feels more like January than June. Which is not a complaint, just an observation. In fact, I feel quite cheerful today even after getting caught in a sudden rain shower without my raincoat.
I thought I would break the ice on my blog with a round of Share Your World questions from Cee. How did it get to be Wednesday already anyway? I keep meaning to write blog posts, read blogs and participate in a few photo challenges but the days just keep flying by.
What is the most fun thing you did in school? Being a B school, we played games against schools in other really small towns that were really far away. The most fun was going to Friday Harbor or Orcas, in the San Juan Islands. This involved a long ferry ride and usually included time to explore the towns while waiting for the ferry.
What is your favorite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie) I’ve always especially adored yellow labs, probably because of their smiley, friendly-looking faces.
I’ve learned that those smiling faces can be deceptive though! Smarty’s smile draws people to him but he will snap at any strangers that reach out to try to pet him.
You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you never met. Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself? Heck no! I wouldn’t even go if I had someone to go with me. Parties are not my thing. All those people and all that mingling and small talk that you’re supposed to do…*shudder* Pure torture, that’s what parties are for people as introverted as I am.
Complete this sentence: Never In My Life Have I…. had a pedicure. I don’t like strangers touching me, I detest salons and I feel uncomfortable having people do things for me that I’m capable of doing myself. I worry about the increasing stiffness in my hips because I would hate to not be able to reach my own toes.
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 to spend my birthday with Don, Smarty, Michael, Daniel and Don’s mom and dad. In the week coming up, which I’m counting as going from now until next Wednesday since it’s so late in the week, I’m most looking forward to school getting out. Since Michael started working, the house has been far too empty and quiet. It will be nice to have Daniel home for the summer. It will also be a relief that he made it through the year without us ending up in juvenile court. Seriously! He’s late to class so much that we’ve been getting threatening letters about truancy laws. Yesterday, he had an in school suspension that started because he was late. I hoped it would be the most awful, long, boring day ever so he would be motivated to not get an ISS again but he enjoyed it.
