I am getting a bit of a jump on things this week and I am SHARING MY WORLD WITH MELANIE
This is the challenge where Melanie and Roger have joined forces to ask us question that help us to share our worlds with all of our readers. Here we go!
- Have you ever driven the wrong way on a one-way street? How did this come about? I got lost on the one way streets in Worcester (pronounced Wistah) MA when I was young driver. I think I had jury duty or something. I thought I was going to die and my panic just kept growing. Finally I got turned round right and headed for home, so I am thinking I had finished my day and was on my way home. It was a long time before I went back
- As a kid, did you ever decide to run away? Did you have a plan? Take a pet? Sandwiches? No. Running away was my sister’s job.
- You suddenly found you have a hidden talent for playing a musical instrument. What musical instrument do you hope that accompanies your talent? Any particular song? I have always wanted to play the accordion or the guitar. If I were to play the accordion I would want to be good enough to play some of the really fast polkas. Guitar would have to be some classical latin guitar.
- Do you accessorize with jewelry? There was an opal necklace (cursed) and Slytherin’s locket (also cursed) in the Potter story. Have you had any heirloom jewelry passed down through the generations? Is it more ‘keepsake’ or do you wear it on occasion? (Hopefully, yours was not cursed?) I do not generally wear jewelry.
Melanie’s Ordinary Muggle Questions:
What ingredients go into YOUR favorite salad? I like to make tossed salads with lettuce, nasturtium, tomato, cucumber, celery, mushrooms and grapes. I also like cheese and croutons but I don’t often put them in.
If you care to, share something that really irritates you.
What are your favorite ‘lounging around the house’ items of clothing? Now that a lot of people ‘lounge around the house’ waiting for the all clear in respect to Covid being shown the door, have those lounging items changed?
I like to wear my plaid pajama pants and a tee shirt. As the nights get colder I will add a sweater or my big maroon bathrobe.
GRATITUDE (as always this is optional)
Please feel free to share something about Autumn (or Spring if you’re gearing up for that) that you especially enjoy!
My sister has been working at an apple orchard for the last few weeks helping some folks from church bring in the harvest. She brings home a bag of apples everyday. I have gotten to bake a lot!
