When we went out on our back deck, this is what we used to see and hear:
the summer green Shenandoah Valley and the voice of nature calling out its praise to God.
For Cee’s FOTD challenge, a lily in mid-life but devoid of crisis, neither toiling nor spinning, content to be clothed according to her Creator’s grand design, joyously alive.
Sneaking my entry in under the wire for this week on Melanie’s Share Your World.
Where Do You Not Mind Waiting?
Almost anywhere. As long as my patience isn’t tested beyond endurance.
But a doctor’s office is the worst. It’s not just the wait, it’s the anxiety. What, you wonder, has she discovered this time? Are my blood test results okay? Any more tests? Ultrasounds? Intracavernous, intramuscular, intrajunctual, intravenal-focal-macular-subjunctal eldritch crepuscular morbidities?
You get the picture.
What Is In Your Fridge Right Now? (you’re not required to give a comprehensive list)
Food. Perishable items. Cryptic, I know.
If You Could Only Speak One Word Today, What Would It Be?
Would You Rather Be Trapped In An Elevator Full Of Men With BO Or Three Soaked Dogs? (this is with the codicil that C-19 doesn’t exist)
I’d prefer the dogs, but I’d rather not be trapped anywhere, much less an elevator. Elevators give me the jitters. I keep imagining an earthquake the very moment the doors shut, and me — and the dogs, if you insist — stuck between a crack in the earth and poor cell reception.
An Attitude of Gratitude
Please feel free to share something good about last week. This is NOT mandatory, it is just if you’d like to.
I’m grateful for fellow bloggers who share their good humor, their talents, their energies in making this world a place worth sharing, specifically this week, encouragement from fellow creative artists and writers. Sláinte!🍻
Well, here’s my first post for Melanie’s Share Your World — yaay! Thanks, Melanie, for sharing your “safe space.” Also thanks to Alistair for making his “shares” an entertaining feature on his blog for some time. I can’t match his wit and I won’t even try, but it’s fun to do something that brings the world together even in this small way rather than dividing it.
What song always gets you out on the dance floor?
No brainer: Santana’s “Smooth”! Pulls me right out of my seat. I’m not sure I know what the lyrics are saying even.
What’s your favorite sleeping position?
On my side mostly, but these days the rheumatoid arthritis makes sleeping that way hard on my shoulders. 😦
If you could snap your fingers and instantly make the world better, what would you do?
Abolish small talk? 😂 I’m quite the failure at it.
Also abolish Twitter. Now that would be an idea!
Seriously though, there are so many evils in the world and they all begin with the human heart. So I would start there and have everyone granted the vision to see each other as they are, made in the image of God, created to love Him and each other.
What’s the scariest thing you’ve ever done, and why did you do it?
One of the scariest things was when I was a kid walking down a lonely stretch of country road and a pack of angry, barking dogs came running towards me from the side of a farmhouse. I knew if I ran I was done for. So I just kept walking while they circled around me barking furiously. I kept my breathing steady, no sudden movements and kept walking, never meeting their eyes, just looking straight ahead. After about what felt like forever, their owner whistled for them and they ran off. Whew.
Then I walked that road again, and again, always with a bit of dread, I guess to prove to myself that I could face my fears, Who knows? Kids do stupid things! 🙄
Gratitude Moment (optional)
Please feel free to share something uplifting from your life!
I am so thankful for fellow bloggers who bring so much pleasure to my life through their thoughts and writing. You open my eyes to different experiences and challenges that are so different from my own. Here’s to you folks! Sláinte!🍻
Having guests over at seven o’clock today
and the table is set with the sides and entrée;
Can’t leave anything out and there’s no way
we’ll forget what to leave out well past the sorbet.
