six degrees of separation (well only five, but ya know…)

I was just thinking about how we humans are interconnected…and the title popped up into my head.  Fandango started me on this mind travel this time….he posted about reading the bag lady’s post which was from another post from another post…and I thought we all are connected to each other somehow. Through our blogs, our families, jobs, past-times.

I liked the answers he gave to the posed questions in Cheryl’s blog, and thought I want to answer them too.

So thanks to:

“The Mysterious Affair at Styles”

Once I finally learned how to read books became my best friend. I have always had a book or two in my purse or backpack at any given time. I read when I wake up and get the first coffee of the day. I read before bedtime and at meals when I am alone. I read while waiting in offices or in the grocery store line. Continue reading

Share Your World, Feb 6, 2017

Cee’s share your world challenge.


Regarding your fridge, is it organized or a mess inside? It is at the best of times almost organized. There are certain shelves that hold particular items, but there are also things just thrown willy-nilly wherever they can fit. The milk always goes on one shelf, as do the eggs. everthing else is pretty much wherever it lands.

Do you prefer your food separated or mixed together? Since Chinese food is my favorite all time comfort food, I guess I like things all mixed up. And I love sauces, hate gravies. 

Do you prefer reading coffee table books (picture), biographies, fiction, non-fiction, educational? YES! Okay, Even I can see where that answer might be just a little bit off. I love books. About the only genre of book I won’t read is science fiction. Well, maybe westerns too. Except I like Zane Grey..and i like Isaac Asimov. So I guess I just lied there. I adore picture books..especially pictures of countries I have visited. I have a gorgeous coffee table book of Israel. I love history..oh heck. I will pretty much read anything in print.

Close your eyes. Listen to your body. What part of your body is seeking attention? What is it telling you?I have a headache from lack of sleep..my eyes feel swollen and sore (lack of sleep again) my blood pressure is up even though I took my meds. Every joint aches as well so it will probably rain tonight or tomorrow. M feet are cold.  Well, in all fairness my feet are always cold. I have congestive heart failure so they would be cold.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I am immensely grateful for my husband’s boss. George was given a raise, a 700.00 bonus and full-time status at his job. He is also working less hours now that he is a full-time employee.  I look forward to getting a tax refund next week and being finally able to replace the sewer line in the backyard.
