Favorite thing to photograph? Write? Or Cook?
Not one of each, I hope, because I’m going with “to write.”
Not just to curry favor or anything, but writing my responses to the weekly Share Your World challenge questions is one of my favorite things to write. I originally started this challenge because I knew that I needed to loosen up my online writing and cultivate a more personal blogging voice. Answering these questions every week has helped me do that because it requires me to just be myself and to explain what I like, think, or value.
Did you like swinging as a child? Do you still get excited when you see a swing?
Oh yes, I always loved swinging. I had the old-fashioned kind of swing in my yard: rope hung from a tree branch with a wooden seat. I used to love to see how high I could get.
I still love a swing and occasionally sit down in one. But, alas, my adult girth often does not fit comfortably in the seats made for kids, so I don’t get to swing very often nowadays.
What has surprised you about blogging?
I’ve been writing a blog post every day this year, and what has surprised me the most is how many topics I found to write about once I started looking for ideas and paying attention to the world around me. I’ve learned a lot about both myself and my world by doing this.
List at least five favorite desserts.
- blueberry pie
- marionberry pie
- creme brulee
- birthday cake
- anything including or covered by chocolate
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m going to have to fall back into my old rut here: I’m grateful for everything about last week and am looking forward to more of the same.
Oh, here’s another thing I’m looking forward to: Our daughter has gotten tickets for all of us to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Christmas morning at the swank new theater that recently opened near our house.
I hope everyone has a good week and a festive holiday season.
