Share Your World #44

What was your favorite subject in school?
I’ll probably never love anything as much as I loved reading in elementary school. As I got older, I liked everything but math and gym. I particularly enjoyed anthropology, linguistics, and genetics, but I majored in English, cause books.

If you could have a servant come to your house every day for two hours, what would you have them do?
I truly dislike the idea of strangers in my home, can I have yard help instead?

Where did you live when you were in the third grade of school?  Is it the same place or town you live now?
I had third grade in Franklin, Indiana with Mrs. Main. I loved Mrs. Main. She was a warm and cheerful teacher who said funny things like, “Don’t squish your letters so close together. They need space between them. If these letters were in a marching band, each one would kick the next in the bottom and they’d all fall down.” I do not live in Franklin anymore, though I do drive through on occasion.

In your opinion, list some places that are great for shopping?
Shopping is ew, so I shop at a lot. Where else can you buy chili vinegar, headphones, a phone case, soap, and a pack of socks at 1am on Monday and have it all delivered to your door on Tuesday afternoon?
I like secondhand shops, and lil boutiques where one can find unusual items.


Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
We ate out too much this past week, so I found myself grateful for a home-cooked meal last night. I let some corn chowder simmer all day, and Sassy and I made some brownies as well.
We went into the woods again this weekend. It was gray and cool. There was a moment of sheer exhilaration when a breeze blew by and gave me a chill. I love fall. I’m grateful for fall. I’m so happy I live here.

Last week I was also the recipient of a Random Act of Kindness. I’d often commented on the attractive cable knit throws in a fellow blogger’s photos, and she sent me one for my very own, as well as some tea. Something along the lines of “Just add kitty.” Mind blown! Is that not the sweetest?!? It was a most unexpected joy, and truly made my day. I’m sittin in it right now. I’ve had all the cats on it already, and Cletus The Dog Kitten’s had his photo taken with it.


they have to claim things, you know

The week coming up indicates the weather will be ideal for kickin up more dry leaves again next weekend, and I look forward to that!

      Thanks! 🙂
      I don’t have Halloween candy, cause we never get any trick-or-treaters. If anyone rings the bell on my darkened porch, they’re gettin a pissy look and a dull baking apple.
      I miss you too. I’ll try to ring you tomorrow after work 🙂

    Those fall colors indeed can make one feel thankful – to be able to witness such miracles at hand is wonderful!

    P.S. I am envious of the subjects you had.

    I was wrapping up my reading (I read during lunch) then I saw your Share Your World post and I had to steal a few minutes. This is one of my favorite things to read 🙂

    I love the mental image of the letters kicking each other in the butts – that’s not going to leave my head for a while.

    I’m glad you got some fall color. I hope it sticks around for a bit.

      Thanks, Dan. 🙂 I think we’ve reached the peak of color here in the city, and I love it so.
      Mrs. Main was awesome like that. She was one of the special ones ❤

    I love your woods pics. I like sitting in the woods on a hot day. Sleeping there can be cold though.

  9. I love the autumn colors! I’ve come to despise shopping as well. The oldest can pretty much only order clothes that fit and the middle hates shopping so orders them as well. That makes me step inside stores a lot less!! 🙂

  10. I do love those photos, Joey, the colours are gorgeous.
    Autumn really is so beautiful and has the added bonus for people like us in that it has cooled down a bit!
    Love the wise words of your teacher regarding the squashed up letters! 🙂

    I’m all about that Amazon, too. And Even if there weren’t crowds of people, I’m not someone who likes to browse much, anyway.

    Love the pics!

  14. The Man on the Rock wins over everything, even the pink trees, even though I know they are in no contest and you can have them all. I wish you much fun tonight whatever you do, and invite you to check my next to last post in which I carelessly mention your deed of kindness. 🙂 (And nothing about how you had 200 in Scrabble before I could blink.)

    I like your photo descriptions – trees, trees, and more trees. It sounds like we share a knowledge of trees 🙂

    … And I LOVE the kitty photo at the end with a tiny little bit of tongue sticking out 🙂

    You have lots of color this fall. Ours is turning out rather drab, but I’d still like to get out and “kick some leaves” as you put it. It’s supposed to be warm the next two days, hopefully I can make that happen. How sweet to receive the knitted throw. Kitty-approved, too!

    Cable knit, kittens, and trees! Oh, my! What beautiful fall foliage shots, Joey — thank you so much for sharing! And I have a cable knit sweater that same pattern and color. #3 Daughter and I used to trade it around between us — Yes, the world-famous Mr. Mustard! lol

    What a wonderful surprise from your friend. And they say internet friendships aren’t real, and the web is cold and impersonal. ha!

    Our fellow bloggers are such special people and sometimes the best part of our days. You deserved the gift, Joey! 🙂
    Those outdoor photos of “nature gone wild” are ones after my own heart! ❤
