Share Your World – 03/05/18

What did you or did not like about the first place you lived without your parents?

Oh good question.That was so very long ago. I know I did a lot of walking in those days as it was far from any bus routes (good exercise). It had a small kitchen with a window so when I burnt things on the stove I opened the window and flapped a towel like mad to get the smoke out. Good memories. 😊

What is your most favorite smell/scent?

Vanilla! I even buy vanilla scented fabric softener.

Would you prefer snowy winters, or not, and why?

Funny you should ask. Saturday to Monday snowfall was a whopping 2 feet!

Despite all of the shoveling, the four plus hours it took me to clear out my driveway, the three days I was storm stayed here because the grader hadn’t been by my place, I am smiling. I don’t know if you ever had the privilege of climbing on top of a snow bank, spreading out your arms and free falling backwards into a blanket of heavy snow, but the feeling is exquisite. When you land, you can spend some time admiring the blue in the sky, watch the clouds roll by, and marvel at how incredibly comfortable it is as the snow molds to the contours of your body. It’s like being cradled by Mother Nature herself.

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.

  1. My god daughter’s baby was born safe and sound at 11:42 pm on March 3! So proud of her!!
  2. My mother in law who came out as soon as my road was clear so I could clean my yard.
  3. The weather. The sun is shining and the wind is warm!
  4. My skid steer. I love that unit! I don’t know…but operating heavy machinery makes me feel empowered. I feel like I can conquer anything even a snow storm.
  5. The road crews working so diligently to plow us out of this mess.

Thank you, Cee, for the questions this week.

  1. “It’s like being cradled by Mother Nature herself.”

    Beautiful description. As I read your words, I was transported back to snowbanks and gazing up at the blue skies and breathing in crisp winter air.
