I usually do Cee’s Share Your World challenge on Saturdays, but I’m changing the schedule up this week so that SHARE YOUR WORLD – 2015 WEEK #52 will appear before the end of 2015.
Tell how you are feeling today in the form of a weather report. (For example, partly cloudy, sunny with a chance for showers, etc.)
Right now I’m hurrying to finish my blog challenge by the end of the year. I’m feeling partly sunny with a chance of bluster, turbulence, and updraft followed by the return of sunny skies.
What is most memorable about your high school years?
My high school years were pretty awful, but that had more to do with home than with school. In fact, school was the area where I was successful. At the awards assembly at the end of my senior year, where awards were given for all major subjects, no one else received more than one award, while I got five.
Still, I couldn’t wait for high school to end so that I could go off to college and start my real life.
Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewelry?
Yes, I have several amethyst geodes, one a refrigerator magnet and a couple of sets of bookends.
I also brought home from my Thanksgiving week on the coast a flat, round, well-tumbled beach rock that I plan to use in some upcoming blog images.
Complete this sentence: I like watching…
… the waves roll in to the shore. It comforts me to know that no matter what else happens in the world, the waves will continue to come in.
… the clouds swirl around the top of mysterious and majestic Mount Rainier.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful that I’ve made it through another year. One drawback of living in a retirement community is that many of our fellow residents are quite old. In the last six months four people I knew pretty well have died.
I’m also glad that I had the opportunity to know all four of those people. They were all outstanding human beings who influenced me to try to become a better person.
In the upcoming week I’m looking forward to finishing up my 2015 blog challenge and to setting up my 2016 writing and reading goals.
Have a good week, everyone. And Happy New Year!
