Another week gone by!
Ready for this week’s installment of the Share Your World Project? Here goes!
If you had a choice, which would be your preference: salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, hot tub, or desert?
As evidenced by where I currently live, I’d have to say “salt water beaches!” In fact, I was at one yesterday 😆
It was a truly spectacular day, with a water temperature of 77 degrees! Perfection!
What book do you think everyone should read and why?
I read it last spring and have NOT stopped thinking about it! Imagine a post-apocalyptic world in which EVERY piece of technology and every modern device is made irrelevant as you fight for survival against a virus engineered by the military. Complicated characters and elegant sentences make each page a delight to read, even as you wince at the horror of it all. 766 pages, yet I felt it was too short! The second book of this three part trilogy is due out in October and I can’t wait!
What’s your favorite way to wake up and what’s the first thing you do?
My favorite way to wake up? Sans alarm clock! 😉 Unfortunately, it doesn’t happen often enough! I REALLY dislike that jarring noise…. and the jolt it brings! Once I’m awake, the very first thing I do is check my cell for messages from my sons. They live up north and sometimes text me after I’ve gone to bed; seeing their little notes always kicks my day into high-gear!
What do you do to relax?
I spend time in my garden!
I took this picture on Saturday while pruning dead wood from a yellow alamanda. I was surprised to see it’s first new bloom peeking through a nearby oriental arborvitae:
Today I repotted two orchids—a purple speckled phalaenopsis that looked tired after a cycle of blooming, and an older brassia severely cramped in its original pot. I also transplanted a plethora of mirabilis to an area with partial shade along the back fence. Basically I “puttered away” a good deal of the afternoon, and found it VERY relaxing! 😮
So there you have it ➡ a little glimpse into my (very) little world. 🙂 Now it’s your turn to participate by clicking right here!
Until next time!
