What is the most famous landmark or building you have ever seen?
I don’t know which things are most famous. I easily think of those I haven’t seen. Like Cee, I’ve seen Seattle’s Space Needle, but is Montreal Tower more famous? Are either of those more or less famous than Empire State Building? How about Epcot Center? That’s certainly famous, right? I’ve seen a lot of stuff.
Do you like long vacation or lots of mini-vacations?
I prefer mini-vacations. Do a lil, go home. I get vacation weary. I love to travel, but I love to come home.
What is your favorite natural or state park?
Mackinac Island, by far. Did you know it’s cool there, even in August?
What is your fantasy vacation?
Ooh, Ireland, absolutely. The rolling green hills, the seascapes, crowded cities built with stone. *sigh* Also, I blame all those Iris Murdoch books — the wind’s always blowing, it’s always cold, everyone wears sweaters, it rains a lot. Pretty romantic for Joeys.
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 most grateful for the restorative weekend I am still enjoying.
I did some things. Tiny grocery trip. Picked up a coffee. Batter fried some walleye. Did one load of laundry. Brewed a pot of coffee. Made some egg salad. But mostly, I lie on The Mister or sit here on my sofa and not do things. It’s so good.
I’ve thought about doing things. Even I’ve talked about doing them. I could bake some oatmeal raisin cookies, take a doorscursion, trim the shrubs… I may still do things, but I’ve been enjoying other things. Watching my family nap. Watching streaming shows. Watching the rain or the cottonwood blow by. I’ll share a photo, but y’all can’t see the cottonwood. Invisible summer snow to you.
This book was written to be read.
These cats and kids won’t pet themselves.
Someone HAS to eat the ice cream.
I am grateful for all the rest. My whole family is.
What I’m looking forward to in the week coming up is an absence of stuff. I pray it’s as peaceful as it sounds. Also, at work, flex-time for summer begins.
