Do you ever sit on a park bench for more than ten minutes?

This hasn’t come up for me in years.  When I took littles to the park to play I’d spend an hour or more camped out on a bench, occasionally getting up to “watch this!”  Now I usually have the dogs with me if I walk to the neighborhood park.  We’ll sit if I need a breather, but it’s hard to relax with those furry ones tugging in search of scents.  Maybe in five years I’ll spend more time relaxing on benches…

When you lose electricity in a storm, do you light the candles, turn on the flashlight or use your cell phone for light?

We usually light candles.  I’m a bit of a nervous Nellie so I’ll use a flashlight to walk around (’cause it would be just my luck to trip, drop a candle, and set something on fire).  Nervous Nellie also sends me into emergency use for my cell phone because, again, it would be just my luck to drain the battery and then need to call for help.  So candles.

Would you rather be given $10,000 for your own use or $100,000 to give anonymously to strangers?

Definitely the $100,000.  We’re able to pay our bills and have a cushion – who needs more than that.  Nothing would give me more pleasure than to supply a surprise donation.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

Our kids went to a church youth retreat so BrightSide and I spent the weekend at the lake, actually resting.  It was c-o-l-d outside, so we just bundled up and kicked back indoors.  I read and napped, wrote and colored; BrightSide got to watch football on Saturday until it was spilling out his ears, plus he enjoyed some reading and napping, too.  Our kids came back devastatingly tired but we came home totally refreshed.

Cee’s Share Your World is my Monday fun.
