Share Your World – January 23, 2017

fruit-vs-fruit-juiceDo you prefer juice or fruit?

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

If you were to paint a picture of your childhood, what colors would you use?

Ways to Relax List: Make a list of what relaxes you and helps you feel calm.

Optional 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.

Here is the basic format.  I will ask you:

  • To answer fours questions each week.
  • Bonus Question is always the same “What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?”  Because we all need to be reminded that there are many things in our lives to be grateful about.

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

  1. Create a SYW  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” or “SYW” 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.


screenshot_373Do you prefer juice or fruit?  How many of you remember my post where I reviewed the NutriBullet?  Juice from the NutriBullet is my preferred why to eat both fruit and vegetables.  I put whole fruits in it and the Nutribullet actually blends it all so fine there is no pulp left.  You actually get the full value of the fruit and its pulp.

I usually add banana, goji berries, spinach, grapefruit, olive oil, wheat grass (organic powder), protein powder, seeds and a bunch of spices.  I will try most anything that is fresh and make a shake out of it.

Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?  When I was young, extremely small and I absolutely adored it.  I liked to walk and play in the woods.  When I was 9 my family moved to Southern California in a moderate sized town.  I didn’t like that so much.  I did like living that close to the ocean though.  As an adult I have lived in a couple bigger sized cities Denver, Colorado and Portland, Oregon and they were too full of people for me.  Guess I’ve always been a small town gal.

canvas-art-painting-whale-rider-3If you were to paint a picture of your childhood, what colors would you use?  Black, red and blue.  I didn’t have a particularly fun childhood.  It was kind of nightmarish with a scattering of wonderful memories.  I found this painting through a google search and found this painting that Swarez did.  Swarez who lives in England is a professional working artist, painting all sizes of modern, abstract and contemporary art. Most available for sale. Big ass commissions undertaken and corporate work too.

Ways to Relax List: Make a list of what relaxes you and helps you feel calm.  It all depends on why I need to relax.  Several things helps me at different times.

  • Being in nature is the best way to get me to relax.
  • Listening to the ocean
  • Qigong
  • Deep breathing
  • Spending a quiet calm day with Chris
  • Get a camera in my hands
  • Watching a good TV show or movie

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?  What was last week.  I really don’t remember.  We finally warmed up and our snow melted.  We are mostly back to a normal Oregon winter.

The week ended on a high note seeing all the women, children and men marching for women’s rights and rights for all people in our country.  Gave me a sense that we can stand united.  Got some pride back for the citizens and people of the US.  The world even came out to march for women’s rights and freedom.  Wonderful show of kinship throughout the world.  We are not that different no matter who we are or where we come from.  We human beings are marvelous!!  Next week, I hope to get back to a semi normal life.

  1. These were great questions today, and your answers were as well. 🙂
    Also, a good reminder that I’ve been ignoring my chia seeds since the holidays… Gotta get back to that!


  2. What a beautiful closing paragraph. I was also amazed by the size of the crowds for Saturday’s march for women’s rights. It was very inspiring.


  3. We have black, blue, and red in common. I’m sorry that yours was a difficult childhood, too. Also, like you, there are just too many notes when it comes to places with lots of people! Give me a place loaded with trees, flowers, and squirrels, not throngs of people. 🙂

    Here is my post for this week: Share Your World

    Have a blessed day.


  4. Nature is very soothing. I didn’t have that on my list, but definitely should be there.

    Saturday made up for a depressing Friday, didn’t it? It’s nice to feel a little hope for humanity and to know that basic human values are important to so many people.


  5. Reading your answers, which I usually try not to do before I answer, I realize I forgot about the times we lived in a Denver suburb and my years in Orange Country, CA – those were as close to big cities as I got. And I forgot about my Nutri Bullet (purchased because you posted about it back when you got yours) smoothies, which always have spinach, most often banana, a little turmeric root and ginger root, sometimes other fruits, and coconut milk. You also reminded me the very best thing to make me relax is being near the ocean – I thought only of those things I am able to do on a regular basis. I found the women’s march uplifting also – but then so depressing when I read some of the negative comments on Facebook. I do not see the division in our country going away during the next four years. Sigh.


    1. I’m glad you like your NutriBullet. I just finished my shake for the day. The only way I don’t get swept up in the politics of today, I stay away from the news as much as possible. I figure if anything really weird goes on I will hear from the blogs I follow. 😀

  6. I’ve considered getting a nutribullet, but I fear it will end up like many other “good intention” appliances gathering dust in the pantry. I have a fickle digestive system and what’s good for most people makes my stupid stomach throw fits.

    I have a friend who paints pictures much like the one you chose for your childhood. 🙂 It’s always awkward when she asks me if I like her paintings because I’m not a fan of abstract art. I often go with, “I like what you did with the colors…” or something like that.

    Wasn’t the Women’s March amazing? They plan to continue their “resistance” if you’re interested:


    1. I am usually not a fan of it either, but when I googled the colors … this one did speak to me.
      I have a really funky stomach and digestive system too. What is nice about the NutriBullet is that it makes the food particles small enough, the food actually bypasses the stomach and it can be processed immediately. It may work for you.

    1. Our has never leaked. The leakage problems are when you over fill the canister. They have a max line which is easy to see. If you stick to just filling it to that level, you should be good. I love our Nutribullet. We are actually one our second one. We got the one that makes soup and gave the old one to my sister and her her hubby.
