Share Your World – May 14, 2018

Here is my take on this week’s Share Your World from Cee’s Photography

Complete this sentence: This sandwich could really use some …

Genoa Salami.  I love the stuff.   I eat a lot of it.  On its own, in sandwiches/ wraps. Wrapped around Cheese Strings.  Maybe added in some red onion as well.  Yummy!

What is your least favorite candy?

Orange or yellow jelly beans.  Yuck!!! They are horrible.  Black are my favourite but there is just something about the taste of those two.

What sign are you? Do you believe in astrology?

I’m Cancer the Crab! I’ve never really put too much thought into it.  Sometimes I will read a horoscope but normally I will just pass them by.  I have read up on the characteristics of a cancer and they seem pretty accurate.

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

My son turned 12 on Saturday.  Every year I make a cake for him.  This is the only time of year that I make cakes.  They have been very elaborate over the years and each year I say that I am never doing it again.  But of course this year I decided to do yet another32287728_10156049217362247_7406068363421548544_n one.  The only problem this year was that I was crunched for time.  Any even though the cake wasn’t that difficult, it was somewhat time consuming.  And right from the get go I had problems.  First the fondant ripped on the hat, then I did have red icing and didn’t have time to go to the store.  So by the time I accidently dropped a can of soup on the one corner of the cake, smooshing it to pieces all I could do was laugh. It was cursed.

But my son loved it and that was all that really mattered.

Yup, I’m a day behind, but better late then never!!!

 

If you were given $22 million tax free dollars (any currency), what is the first thing you would do? (This is just a dream question, remember anything can happen in SYW.)

Sitting here right now, thinking about it, I honestly don’t know.  We’ve all played this game over the years and depending on where you are at in your life, depends on what you would choose to do with it.

I think that I wouldn’t tell anyone, but surprise our close family and friends with their dream car and some fun money.  Or maybe take everyone on one hell of a vacation.

Whatever it is, my first thoughts are always of giving to someone else.

Oh and I would definitely get a pair or two of Louboutins……lol

In what do you find the simplest of joys?

One of the things I love most is snuggling on the couch reading, with the windows open, a light breeze and the sounds of outside.   But what makes that even better is a storm coming in.  The smell of the air changing, the distance rumble of thunder, then eventually the sound of the rain hitting the roof.   Nothing to me is more relaxing a soothing that that.  Sadly we don’t get as many thunderstorms as we used to.

What would be your ideal birthday present, and why?

Actually I am not good at receiving gifts, but I love to give them.

I would prefer to just buy myself something.  My birthday is in June and the weather is usually nice and sunny and warm.  I like just wondering around the mall or in and out of shops and pick a few things.

My son has been dying to go to Inflow, an indoor skate park about an hour away from our house.  He and his friends are big into scootering.  so I took them on Saturday for the day. It made me smile to see how happy and excited he was.  He had a great time!

Its question and answer time again……so here is goes!

Do you use paper money? If so is your money organized sequentially according to denomination?

I rarely use it anymore.  There just doesn’t seem to be a need for it.   Yet, when I do have it, its shoved however and wherever in my wallet or purse, but funny enough I always know where it is.   monopoly-money_wide-1991457caf6d29cc74ab436d7d4139d1c630672e-s900-c85

Now if I am giving away money, like a gift or to the bank, I always and I mean always, put it in order, lowest to highest, with them facing the correct way.

And if I am playing Monopoly, the money is always lined up lowest to highest.

You are comfortable doing nothing? For long stretches of time?

Nope not really.  I am comfortable being by myself for long periods of time, but not doing anything.   I feel insecure, especially in public.  I need to be doing something, usually reading or playing on my phone.  I can’t even relax for long in a hot bubble bath.  I don’t even nap and if I do its for like 20 mins and then I am done.

The only time I can ever remember just do nothing was when I was in high school (25 or so years ago) and I tried acid.  No judging..lol!!!  I sat by one of the canal locks for about 4 hours and watched a ship go through.  Did nothing but just sat and watched.  Not sure if that really counts.  Hahaha!

What is your greatest strength?

I am very calm in stressful, chaotic or emergency situations.   I don’t easily fluster.  Except on Friday’s after working all day and the highway is jammed up because someone had gotten into an accident.  I commute for work and by the end of the week I just want to go home.

Oh and if the dishes are stacked wrong……yes there’s a proper way!!!

My son received an academic and student of the month award at school.  I was so proud of him.  He struggles in school, especially in reading and writing.  He finds it hard.  He is so active and is a much more hands on learner.  This year he has had an amazing teacher who has really turned things around for him.  He has put so much more effort into his school work, mainly because he values his teacher opinion so much.  And that effort really paid off.  I took the afternoon off to see him accept the award.  It was a great end to the week.

Share Your World – April 23 , 2018

I enjoy reading other bloggers shared thoughts and decided to play along.

If you could get an endless supply of any food, what would you get?

My first thought would be to pick an indulgence, something that I love but don’t eat all the time. Like cheesecake or something with caramel in it.  Or maybe a nice big plate of nachos smothered in difference cheeses.  But what I’d actually pick would be chicken.  I eat chicken all the time.  Its by far my most favourite meat and it can be used in so many different variations.

List at least 5 movie or books that cheer you up.

I love Pitch Perfect. I’ve watched that movie so many times and never get sick of it.  The overall atmosphere of it is always so upbeat.

Any books written by Sophia Kinsella.  She is so good at writing about quirky females.  Her book Can You Keep A Secret is so laugh out loud funny.  A recommended read for sure..

The How to Date a Douchebag Series by Sara Ney.  Again, hilarious.  You don’t even need to read the book, just read the blurbs at the beginning of each chapter. Super funny and it makes you wonder how the hell she thinks this stuff up.

Blow is my favourite movie and it’s not because I am a Johnny Depp fan.  There is just something about that movie that I love.

Ocean’s Eleven and The Italian Job because I love the way it all comes together at the end.

I am also going to add in a TV show.  We  have a little show here in Canada called Schitt’s Creek.  The dialogue in this show is super witty and always puts a smile on my face.

If you were a mouse in your house this evening,  what would you see your family doing?

Right now, since we are being spoiled with nice warm temps, their evening would mostly be spent outside.  Eventually though, the kidlet would be dragged inside to shower, finish up any homework all while grumbling about.  The parental figures would watch an episode of whatever they were bingeing on Netflix, which happens to be Rosewood right now, or the hockey game.  These are tense times in the playoffs so likely hockey would win out.   But realistically The Leafs can’t last much longer, so back to Netflix it will be.

sunshine-happyWhat did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?

This one is easy!!!  The sun and warmer temperatures.  We have had a very long, very snowy, very cold winter.  Things finally turned this week and it has been wonderful.  It is amazing how much a little warmth and sunshine can improve ones moods.
