What household chore do you absolutely hate doing?
Am I allowed to just say “housework in general?”
If I have to choose just one chore, it would be cleaning the bathroom shower. I only say this because the last time I got down on my knees to scrub the back of the shower, my knees audibly creaked and then I couldn’t get back up.
What was the last URL that you bookmarked?
I haven’t bookmarked a web page in a very long time because my bookmarks list got so big and convoluted that I couldn’t find anything anyway. I still occasionally look at my bookmark list if I’m trying to find something specific, but now, when I come across something on the web that I want to use, I copy the URL in the browser and then paste it into a document in Scrivener. This method allows me to collect all those wonderful articles I want to use to write a specific blog post.
Close your eyes. Listen to your body. What part of your body is seeking attention? What is it telling you?
My bladder is softly saying, “Empty me.” If I don’t listen to it now, before I know it, it will begin to scream at me. But when I’m writing, I do so hate to be interrupted by such mundane tasks as going to the bathroom.
(I hope this doesn’t make me a potty mouth.)
Would you rather have a two-bedroom apartment in a big city of your choosing or a mansion in the country side in the state or country where you currently live?
I’d go for the mansion if it come with all the help necessary to care for it. (I hate housework; see question #1.)
Downsizing to a retirement cottage forced me to get rid of some of my books. I still find myself going to the bookcase to pull out a book I know I have, only to realize that it didn’t make the move. So if I had a mansion, I’d have all the book space I need.
However, I wouldn’t want to be TOO far out into the country. I like living near services I need, such as book stores and libraries, banks and post offices, and grocery stores.
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 had several days of glorious sunshine, and flowers began to appear all over town. I’d like some more of that for next week.
AND, on Monday morning I have to report for jury duty. I’ve never served on a jury before, and I think it would be a marvelous learning experience. I’m hoping I’ll get chosen to sit on a jury. But if I don’t get chosen, I’ll have plenty of time to read while sitting around waiting to be called. Overall, it’s a win-win situation.
Have a good week, everybody!
