Thanks to Cee for the latest edition of her weekly challenge, SHARE YOUR WORLD – 2016 WEEK 26.
What’s your most memorable (good or bad) airplane flight?
I don’t remember where I was flying to or exactly when, but I remember the first time I took off on a rainy day and had the glorious experience of breaking through the clouds into brilliant sunlight.
How many bones, if any, have you broken?
Fortunately, I’ve made it through my life so far without breaking any bones. (And I’m now knocking on wood and hoping I haven’t seriously jinxed myself.)
If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? (guest can be dead, alive, famous or someone you just know)
(1) my father, (2) my maternal grandmother, and (3) my paternal grandmother, all of whom died many years ago, long before I got to know them well and ask them about their own lives. Realizing way too late that we should have spent more time talking to the people in our lives before they died seems to be a nearly universal experience.
Make a Currently List: What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating, needing, wanting, and missing right now?
I just finished Before the Fall by Noah Hawley. Up next: Cold Sassy Tree by Olive Ann Burns.
We recently finished streaming the first two seasons of Bloodline on Netflix. We’re watching two TNT summer series, Major Crimes and Rizzoli & Isles. This is the final season for R & I, so it’s kind of bittersweet. And we’ve begun watching the series Thirteen on BBC America, about a kidnapped woman who has just escaped after being held captive for 13 years. We’ve only watched the opening episode so far (#2 waits on the DVR), so I can’t judge how this one is going to be, except to say that the first episode left me anticipating the second.
I’m not much of a music listener usually, but I have just finished the unabridged audiobook of Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith (pseudonym of J.K. Rowling). This is a good mystery series with a couple of well developed main characters. Up next: End of Watch, the final volume of Stephen King’s Mr. Mercedes trilogy.
Lots of fresh fruits and vegetables from the farmers market. We’re bringing Guinness brats and potato salad to our community cookout on Monday, July 4th.
Lots more hours in the day. Doesn’t everyone?
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Last week we attended a home game of the Tacoma Rainiers (Triple A farm team of the Seattle Mariners), which we always enjoy. We also had our monthly Lunch Bunch excursion yesterday, another activity we almost always enjoy. For next week I’m hoping to get more writing done. (I think I many say this just about every week.) And we’re looking forward to celebrating the July 4th birthday of the U.S. with an outdoor cookout and gathering on Monday.
Have a good week, everyone.
