Share Your World – June 11, 2018

This week’s Share Your World from Cee’s Photography:

If you could choose any person from history to be your imaginary friend, who would it be and why?

There are 2 people I would pick.

First would be Jesus, which is a strange answer for someone that doesn’t believe in him.  I would like to pick his brain. Hear his stories. Validate the fiction versus reality.

Second would be the Marilyn Monroe.  I think she’d just be full of fun.

 

60’s, 70’s, 80s, 90s: Which decade do you love the most and why?

Hmm….I love 80’s music, but I would say the 90’s.  I was a teen in the 90’s and so I have a lot of fond memories of that time.  All of firsts in the 90’s.  Getting drunk for the first time.  First kiss.  Loosing my virginity.  High school and parties.  Getting my driver’s license.  First job.  Falling in love.  Break ups.  Skipping school. Fake Id’s. Bar hopping.  Just being a teen in general.   Even though it all seemed so tough, life was so easy and carefree then.

 

When you die, what do you want to be remembered for?

I think my sense of humour and my open-mindedness.

 

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?

I used to bake all the time, but somewhere over the past year or so I’ve gotten away from it.  No one in my house really eats baked goods, so my neighbours would always reap the benefits of anything that I baked.  This past Sunday the mood to bake just hit me and I decided to make a cheesecake.  A Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake to be exact….and that we will eat!!!!

But I still shared with the neighbours along with a few cocktails. It was perfect after a long day. cc

The stunning conclusion to the All In Duet…DoubleDown_Ebook_preview_jpeg

In Vegas, there was one man who was off limits. One man… and I fell for him. 

I knew there were risks. Still, I played the game. When Dario Capece called, I answered. When he beckoned, I came. When he broke all my rules, I looked the other way. 

I knew there were risks. I just never realized they included death. 

*Note, this book is the second and final book in the All In Duet. It should be read After Even Money.

I Speak English & Canadian

sc

I was scrolling through Twitter the other day and came across a post that said

“If I don’t understand what someone is talking about, I assume they are speaking Canadian.”

I actually stopped and laughed out loud at that one.

I mean, do we really speak that differently? I do realize that the farther east you travel, places like Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and more specifically Newfoundland, the Canadian dialect changes, but overall I think we all speak the same.

Maybe it’s not so much an accent change but the fact that we use words that only make sense in Canada.

I saved my toonies and loonies and had enough to by a new toque, some poutine, a bag of ketchup chips, a kinder egg and a twofer.  How aboot that eh?

Whatever it is, I do find it amusing.

You can even get your own “real” Canadian name. Mine??? Winter Hoser.  lol! I think I will stick with the one that I was born with.

Have fun with this.  And take a minute and let me know what your true Canadian Name is.

 

A Few Captured Moments in Time

As the Daily Post ends its weekly photo challenge, we are asked to look back at some all time favourites.   For me, my favourite photos are the one that make me smile or in some way just catch my eye.  Sometimes they spark a memory.  But almost always,  they are of people.

And I have taken hundreds of photos along the way.  Capturing moments in time.  Below are some of MY favourites.  A few of the photos weren’t taken by me, but I love them just the same.  And I would have loved to add so many more, but I have respectfully kept out photos that show faces of people other than my own.

Share Your World- June 4, 2017

Here is goes….

A piece of clothing from your younger childhood you still remember?

Honestly I don’t think I remember anything specifically. Really just items from what I seen in old photos. A red dress my mom sewed. A royal blue bathing suit. A Strawberry Shortcake tshirt. Rainbow socks with the individual toes in them.

I remember more from my early teen years. That seemed to be when trends and brand names seemed to be important.

Irregardless of your physical fitness,coordination or agility: If you could be an athlete what would do do? Remember this is SYW, dreaming is always allowed.

Hmmm…I think I would be a snowboarder. It looks like a lot of fun. I can barely ski so snowboard will not likely be happening anytime in my near future.

In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?

Always the driver. For two reasons. 1. I like to be in control, especially when driving on the highway. It works well that my husband hates highway driving. 2. I often get motion sickness when others drive. It’s less likely to happened if I’m the driver. Again it goes back to control.

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

Saturday we went to the Toronto Zoo. The weather was perfect and there weren’t a lot of crowds so we had perfect views of many of the animals.
