Here we go for the tenth week of Share Your World hosted by Cee Photography! Here are this week’s questions:
What did you or did not like about the first place you lived without your parents?
I liked being independent. Not having to worry about coming home late and getting punished for missing curfew. I was the only one with a curfew as my older and younger brother could stay out all night and no one blinked. But one thing I hated about the apartment where we lived (my two brothers moved out with me) were the rats that were bigger than cats. We lived in one of my grandmother’s apartments right next to the sewer and dang, we had rats and no cats in sight to catch them because if there were any cats, they probably bailed at the sight of the rats. So needless to say, there was lots of screaming in that apartment.
What is your most favorite smell/scent?
Probably jasmine although you can’t beat baby smell or baked chocolate chip cookies!
Would you prefer snowy winters, or not, and why?
As long as I don’t have to shovel the driveway or have to get in my car to drive anywhere, I’m fine with snowy winters.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
My little prince and I went to the Automobile Driving Museum for a birthday party and he had a blast sitting behind the wheel of many old cars. His first choice, of course, was this:
I can’t believe my little guy is growing up so fast! He loved sitting behind the wheel and “driving” me places. I’m no longer sure if it was okay for us to get into some of the cars but it was fun.
My favorite piece was the phone and it became the perfect tool to get my son to recite my phone number back to me so he could see how I’d have to dial it. He could never remember it and I’ve been working on getting him to know my number by heart in case of an emergency. Yesterday they had a “lockdown drill” at school which was basically an active shooter drill. What a scary world we truly live in now…
Another thing that made me smile this week was my walk with a friend around the lagoon. She brought duck feed with her and it was hilarious seeing the coots, ducks and one goose race toward her the moment she took out that bag of feed. I’m totally buying feed next time! And the flowers are also starting to bloom.
