Share Your World – May 22, 2017

What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? 

How often do you get a haircut?

In regards to puzzle what’s your choice: jigsaw, crossword, word search or numeric puzzles?

How many cities have you lived? You can share the number of physical residences and/or the number of cities.

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

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

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.

HERE ARE MY ANSWERS

 

What one thing have you not done that you really want to do? These are a couple of things that are on my list:  Fly in a helicopter, take a ride in a hot air balloon, and swim with dolphins.  If I had to pick one thing…simply enjoy living my life and smile a lot every day.

How often do you get a haircut?  Rarely.  A few years ago my hair stylist moved away and got married.  I’ve not had my hair officially cut since then.  Chris has trimmed it.

In regards to puzzle what’s your choice: jigsaw, crossword, word search or numeric puzzles?  Word Search puzzles.  I once had a science teacher who gave the class a word search puzzle and whoever finished first got an A on the test for that week.  I already loved doing them.  So I got an automatic A on my test each week.  The school decided to transfer me out of that class and I was put into a space science class instead.  I was able to build my own rocket.  That was pretty cool.

How many cities have you lived? You can share the number of physical residences and/or the number of cities.  

When I lived with my parents I lived several places in the Pacific Northwest; Wallhalla, North Dakota close to the Canadian Border; Tofte, Minnesota along the Lake Superior near the Canadian Border.  At age 9 (third grade) I lived in River Grove, Illinois and went to school there for six weeks.  Then when I was 9 years old my family moved to Oxnard, California.

Since I’ve been on my own I’ve lived in the Denver, Colorado and several of the suburbs, a brief stay near Colorado Springs, Colorado.

And now I’ve been in Oregon since 2005.  We first lived in Beaverton for the first year and a half and have been in Canby since then.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?   Last week was a good week.  I took it fairly easy.  My irises are starting to bloom and I have been enjoying seeing them pop up.  Our weather turned more into summer.  Although we did get a couple days of rain.  It was a nice week.  Just expecting more of the same this week.

  1. 1. Helicopter ride. I agree with that.
    2. Every 6 weeks or so. I look too scruffy without one.
    3. All kinds of puzzles. Love jigsaw puzzles though. Failing that I construct IKEA furniture without instructions
    4. Glasgow, Scotland. Port Talbot, Wales. Edmonton and Calgary, Canada. Dammam, Saudi Arabia. Dubai, UAE. I guess that makes 6

  2. How did things work out with that rocket, Cee? I love word search puzzles, pretty much anything to do with words, except for crossword puzzles. I never can do them to the end.

    It has been raining here since sometime yesterday. We’ve had a few rounds of thunder and lightning along with the rain. We love to watch storms and it appears the baby wrens were well protected by their parents through the storm, in spite of their very exposed nest location.

    Here’s the link to my post for this week: Share Your World.

    Have a blessed day!

  3. My mom’s side of the family is from Oregon (spread throughout the state). I thought about moving there once or twice… I’m not sure why I never did. It’s beautiful country, both east and west of the mountains. I’ll have my answers up soon. 🙂 Enjoyed reading yours.

  4. I am not sure, but I think the irises we brought with us from South Carolina might finally be starting to thrive out along the back fence. Since I have trouble walking, it has been years since I have been back there. Here is my post. Have a great week.

  5. Sounds like a pretty interesting life. Lots of moving around. I loved moving when I was a kid. Now, it’s too much of a pain. Next move I’m just tossing everything out and starting over!
