Share Your World #31

What is your favorite part of the town/city you live in.  And what Country do you live?
Oh that’s hard. I’m fond of my own front porch. And my own back yard. I love a lot of my city, but I love its green spaces most — parks, cornfields, winding, hilly roads lined with trees. It’s super green here, good for my soul.
Indianapolis is a pretty city.
Also, we have fantastic museums.

I live in these United States, I do.


Would you rather wear clown shoes every day or a clown wig every day?
I’ll go with the shoes. Sweaty head is not my favorite.


Which way does the toilet paper roll go? Over or under?


What do you do to make a living or during the day?  If you are retired what mostly occupies your day? Or if you are a student what are you studying?
I wouldn’t say I make a living, but I do add to the pot. For several hours of a day, I research stuff, write stuff, compulsively fuss over details, overthink and fuss s’more, scan things, fax things, argue with the printer, white things out, staple things, make nice-nice with all the people, knock my left knee into my desk, sort, organize, label, and file stuff. I love my job.


Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Omaword, I am so glad last week is over. Too bad I have another crazy week to go. I’m hoping it’s not quite as cram-packed with madness. I’m wiped and my anxiety is tellin me all about it.

The scenery was loverly. I enjoyed the drive through rural Indiana, I did.


Times like this, I focus on turning my complaints into gratitude. How fortunate I am to have children to cart around. How wonderful to have a family to reunite with. How blessed to have so much food to cook.
I also get glad about anything that makes me feel better — affectionate husband, hot shower, air-conditioning, tasty beverage, soft pajamas, comfy bed.

    My world? Thanks for asking. It’s a pretty day, a little sour in mood though. Just under a lot of stress and stuff 😦 but I enjoyed reading this.

    Living in the Pacific Northwest, USA; I love the weather and scenery; I have shoes, not hair, so pass me the clown wig; if the tp is not over, I change it so that it is (even in other’s home); I’m retired, I walk, write, ride a motor scooter (300cc), hang out, play Pokémon Go (just started that curiosity), and read. I got out a lot last week, turned a year older, got sick Thursday, but recovered by Sunday. More of the same this next week (except for the sick part), meeting with friends, and learning more about everything.

      Glad you’re well again!

      You should totally join these challenges, everyone wants to read about a retired guy who rides a scooter and plays Pokemon Go while wearing a clown’s wig! 😀

    I love real front porches. The place I am considering moving to has a lot of them.

    I love the description of your work day. I need to think of mine in those terms. Then again, it might make me cry. I am grateful for similar things. I hope you have an anxiety-free week.

    As a new follower, it’s nice to get to know you a little bit better. The over or under toilet paper roll questions says a lot about a person. You chose wisely.

    I guess I’m a freak. I really don’t care how the toilet paper goes on the spindle. I just want people to change the roll when it runs out.
