Time to Share My World, a weekly prompt by Cee’s Photography! Hope you’ll join us as well! Anyway, here are the questions:
List 2 things you have to be happy about?
I have to be happy with my upcoming books, especially before they’re written. That way, I actually start working on them. If I’m not happy, no words come.
I also have to be happy about my decision not to eat red meat anymore as part of my healthy diet resolution for 2018. Too bad hubby takes home a lot of meat dishes from his parents’ house that I think it’s a conspiracy to knock me off my diet (it’s already happened a few times). But he did bring home some tofu steaks that his dad fried last night and asked me, “so how do we prepare this stuff?”
And I told him to just eat it as is.
Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewelry?
So glad you asked. I own a few around my house. Some are pretty big and some are small and kinda show up everywhere. There are citrines, labradorite, amethyst, kyanite, to name a few, and a few I’ve forgotten their names already. Most of the big ones were in my old office and when I downsized, I kept only one big one that’s in the living room and one I’m pretty sure wouldn’t fall off its lighted stand and kill someone. I also have a citrine quartz in front of me between my laptop and external monitor.
Are you a hugger or a non-hugger?
I’m kinda in between. I was never a hugger when I was younger because in the Philippines, we didn’t hug as a greeting; we did the air-kiss, like cheek to cheek but nothing touches. But the first real hug I ever got was when I was sixteen and my cat died. My stepfather gave me this big hug that had me breaking down 1) because my cat had just died and he was not waking up no matter how much I wanted him to and 2) because it was my first real hug ever, just like the ones I saw in movies and read about in books. It was surreal.
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.
I’ve been doing writing prompts on my poetry blog this week and while I’m technically procrastinating on actually writing the next book, it’s pretty inspiring to see that I’m not as rusty as I thought I was.
