Share Your World From 11-30-20

I have not been able to get here to SHARE MY WORLD for the last several weeks. But I am nearly finished with the edits on my book, and so this week I thought I would spend some time catching up with everyone here in the blogosphere and on social media.

I am so grateful that Melanie keeps this challenge running. By answering her questions we all get to share our worlds and build community! Thank you Melanie! Below are this week’s questions and my answers. To find out more about this sharing challenge please click the underlined link above and go to Melanie’s site.

QUESTIONS

What would you enjoy if you could do so without someone getting annoyed with you for enjoying it?  It MUST be something you aren’t supposed to enjoy because it is “bad for you”.

OK this is totally cultural having to do with my branch of Christianity, but if it wasn’t considered inappropriate for my station I would probably really enjoy going to dances….That said I am a horrible dancer so while I might enjoy it I don’t think anyone would enjoy watching it.

Is it okay for men to wear the color pink?

Sure. We just call it salmon.

Can you curl your tongue?

Do you like my glasses? I broke my other set.

What, in your opinion, is the best room to put a fireplace?

The family room.

GRATITUDE SECTION (As always, OPTIONAL)

gratitude Di
(this meme is borrowed from Di.  She used it recently on one of her own posts and I found it to be very apt).

How do you show your gratitude?

Actually I am trying to be more intentional with this because I am not naturally “gratitudinous”. I am starting by making a list, checking it twice and then sending a message, a letter or a phone call. I am trying to do this weekly starting at Thanksgiving throughout the year.
