Share Your World – 2014 Week 15

For your blog do you basically use Windows or Mac, laptop, desktop, pad, or phone?


As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? 

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I sincerely hope you enjoy my questions for this week and find the questions interesting enough to play along.   If you ever want me to ask anything specific, please feel free to contact me.  You don’t think a lot about these questions, unless of course it is FUN for you.  Simply dream and just let loose, or you let your alter ego answer if you want.   Have a fabulous week everyone!!

Even though I oftentimes will add photos to my answers, it is not a requirement to participate in Share your World.

If you adore challenges as much as I do, please check out WordPress’s Blog Event Listing for other challenges.

I will be post four different questions each week for you to answer.  There are two ways which you can participate.

  1. Create a  Share Your World  post.  Then post the link to your blog in my comment box or leave your answers in the comments box of my blog.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Share Your World” tag.
  3. Remember to Follow My Blog to get your weekly reminders.

I usually will respond to your entry on your blog, rather than on my page.

Here are my answers.

For your blog do you basically use Windows or Mac, laptop, desktop or pad?  I use my IMac because that is where I have all my photos.  Sometimes I use my little Mac Airbook.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?  When I was really young it was I wanted to be a teacher.  Then in high school I wanted to be editor in chief of the LA Times.  I gave that up because news people were to invasive into people’s lives and I just couldn’t go there.

Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?  I lived in a the country, not even a town.  I actually lived in at a Ranger Station (Smokey the Bear) where there were four houses for the rangers.  I lived in an authentic log cabin too.  I lived in northern Minnesota northeast of Duluth.  I could hike all over the woods and never get lost.  My family moved to Chicago when I was 9 and I got so lost in a city.


How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?  Today pretty old.  I’ve got a headache and just not feeling myself.  I had a busy and fun weekend and my body is a little sore too.  But the sun is shining and it is a beautiful day in Canby.

  1. What a great question on age! Thinking about it makes the moment feel timeless. I’m shooting for age 31.

    I grew up in a tiny village but it felt like a big place at the time.

    I use my phone a lot now to blog. Not ideal but it’s fast to find and easy to fire up.

    As a teen I wanted to be a stand up comic. The social life looked good from the outside!

    Cee, you would make a great editor in chief, your blog rocks!

    Looking forward to reading other folks answers. Love the red leaves in the first photo.

  2. Interesting answers!
    In my case, too boring for a post. You said two ways. I hope this is the second:

    Desktop, XP (yes, I know!)
    Vet. Didn’t happen.
    Tiny seaside village on a wild coast. Loved it. Then big inland city. Hated it.
    Probably 1 – 2 years old. After that, one gets to know! 🙂
    Last week – managing 800 metre swim. This week – NOT doing 800 metre swim.


  3. Japanese Maples are so pretty when they come in during the spring.

    What a shock, to say the least, moving from the woods to the city.


  4. I wanted to be a teacher, too. I still do. That age question is a good one. This might be the only post I get to this week, because I am drowning in homework.


    1. I didn’t get on line yesterday except to post Share Your World. I got new shoes and they really wore me out in a good way. I have extremely wide feet and an even higher arch. I’ve always had to wear shoe way to long to get them wide enough for me. So I felt like I was walking for the first time with a lot of freedom. My aging body told me to slow down yesterday. I’m feeling much better today, but still tied….at least not hurting.


  5. I think it’s cool you got to grow up in the country and lived in a log cabin. That would be a culture shock to move to a large city after that. I hope your headache is gone and you feel better. Some days we feel our age (or more) and some days the number just can’t be right! Pretty Japanese Maple.


  6. I wanted to be a ballet dancer!! ( for a few years!) and then a mystic like Thomas Merton!! I ended up a gardener!! I grew up in a small university town on and island, very picturesque and summers at a lake. I have windows. I think any age can be wonderful but physically 37 seemed good a good year. I was living in Greece that year!! But I’m happy the sun is out and I’m out hiking and taking pics.
    Beautiful photo of japanese maple leaves.


  7. I worked with non-profit literacy organizations for a while – so I worked with a lot of people who became teachers – it was enough to know it wasn’t for me (I’d worked around kids long enough by that stage to wonder if it was). Hope you found your path too. As for being an editor – another similar dream 🙂
