Cee’s Share Your World- June 26, 2017

Here are this week’s questions.

What goal are you working on now? Your goal can be something fun or extremely serious. Have fun with this question.

Right now I have my most immediate goal on hold as I am not home.  If I were home, my goal would be making my four grandchildren new quilts for their Christmas presents. They have not gotten new ones in a couple of years and I have been reminded about it several times.  I should have brought my featherweight sewing machine down to Florida with me so I could at least get some piecing done, but I didn’t give it a thought.  So, looks like I will be burning the midnight oil when I return home.

However, since I cannot work on my quilting I am working on posting on my blog at least daily.

What is one thing you’re glad you tried but would never do again?

I tried skiing when I was in college.  I made it down the hill by my own power and even standing on my skis, but I didn’t enjoy it.  I have never done it since and won’t ever do it again.  It’s clearly not my thing.

Did you choose your profession or did it choose you?

I was chosen by my profession.  Being a nurse is something I was destined to be.  From the time I was a little girl it’s all I ever wanted to do.

Have you ever gotten lost?

Oh yes, I have been lost many times.  I think it’s because I have never been afraid to jump in the car and take off to someplace I had never been before.  Today with smart phones and GPS’ it’s not nearly as much fun as it used to be.  I always looked at getting lost as an adventure.

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 very grateful that my son in law is feeling better.  His diabetes was a bit out of control and he had his meds changed.

I am looking forward to getting out to take some more photos this week.


The White Monster

Three Line Tales – Week 73

three line tales 73 midsummer

After the final whistle blew all of the kids ran into the middle of the field to shake hands before running to find their parents.

It was time to go out for pizza with the other kids and the coaches and their parents which had  become a regular celebration for the players.

The white monster was tired after having balls kicked at him all afternoon and was left alone to guard the field until the kids came back again the next week.  The


My Dream

Daily Prompt:  Local

I love this time of year when all of the local farmers put their vegetables up for sale at the area farmers markets.  Tomatoes, corn on the cob, green beans, so fresh when you can get them like that.   Dottie and I have really been enjoying the tomato sandwiches and she made a big pot of ham and string beans.  Oh it is delicious.

I always wanted to have a farm.  I would have liked to have cows on my farm.   Especially Holsteins with their black and white spots.  My husband was born in Lancaster County PA in the middle of Amish farms.  Most of the farms are dairy farms.  I fell in love with the with the area and we would visit the area since he had a lot of family there.

I realized after visiting the area that having a farm is more work than I would want to do.  So I had to let my dream go.  We often have to let dreams go, but it’s OK.  I think that’s how we wind up with what we need in our lives.
















The Great Escape

Daily Prompt:  Cringe

Yesterday my friend’s two cats got out of the house while she was helping her husband get out of the house.  He’s still using a walker, but he is getting better every day.  Anyway, after they returned from church they realized that the cats were not in the house.

I got home a little later than they did.  After I went to Mass I went for a ride to take some photographs.  When I got home Dottie told me the cats had gotten out.  I cringed when she told me because she had lost her last cat to one of the hawks that roost in the woods behind her house.  Needless to say, she was beside herself.

Well we had supper and I took Gracie out for her walk.  As I was leaving the house the one cat was attempting to get to the front door.  I was able to catch him and put him in the house.   I looked up to see the other cat sitting right next to the open garage door.  As Gracie ran up to him, the cat ran into the garage.  I called out to Dottie so she would close the door to keep the cat in.  I am so glad that we got those cats in the house.  If we had not found them it would have been a very long night.
