Share Your World – Week 11

share-your-world2

It’s time for Share Your World hosted by Cee’s Photography, and these are the questions for Week 11. Can you believe how the weeks are just flying by?

If a distant uncle dies and you were always his favorite and leaves you $50,000 (any currency) in his will, what would you do?

I’d pay all my debts and put all but 10% into some kind of savings account—or at the rate the world is going maybe hide it under my mattress, who knows. And then it’s business as usual with that 10%. Maybe a bit of travel which would probably use up the 10% pretty quickly with the family in tow.

What sound or sounds do you love?

I like the sound of a babbling brook or the wind rustling the leaves. When I went to Sun Valley, Idaho one summer, I couldn’t believe that one didn’t need a sound machine to hear that babbling brook sound because where I stayed, they were kinda everywhere. Same with Nevada City, California where little streams that fed into the Yuba River snaked through this one property where I stayed for about two weeks. Add the sound of the wind ruffling the leaves and it was bliss.

What’s your middle name?  Why?

My mom named me after her favorite actress, Elizabeth Taylor and the character Liz played in National Velvet. So I have both her names. But for years, my mom told me that she had actually named me after the horse and it wasn’t until I saw the movie when I was about 22 when I learned that the horse’s name was Pie.

 

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. 

I always marvel at my son’s ability to entertain himself after school, just before we head to the car. Sometimes he plays with other kids and sometimes he just plays by himself while I talk to his behavioral aide about how his day went. On Friday, they had a treasure hunt for St. Patty’s Day. Apparently, leprechauns left glitter around the campus along with glittery green and gold shamrocks. So now we have them all over the house as well…
