One of the goals of this challenge is to share my home with you, along with all of its changes throughout the course of the year. The Vicarage (that’s my house’s name) is an old New England cottage which needs lots of updating. This year my sister, my daughter and I are committing to do a lot of that updating. As we put Christmas away we are getting ready to transform our dining room into a first floor bedroom for my mother. She is no particularly happy about any of this but she really needs a bed on the first floor as she seldom is willing to do the stairs anymore.

Share Your World 1-25-20

Well hello again world! I missed a week of sharing as I was at my son’s wedding in The Philippines. I’ll show a few pictures of that at the end of this post. That said, I wanted to make sure I got a SHARE YOUR WORLD POST  done before this week rang out.

For those of you who don’t know “Share Your World” is the weekly challenge where Melanie from “Sparks From A Combustible Mind” asks a few questions and in answering them we all share our worlds. This week’s questions and my answers are below. When you have finished reading my thoughts click on the underlined link above and see how others shared their worlds.

Where do you get your news?

I get most of my news from on line sources like Youtube. I subscribe to several news channels including CNN MSNBC and FOX. I alos really like Jason A. We do buy two daily newspapers from the local Cumberland Farms but those are mostly for my mother’s perusal.  I seldom even take a look at anything other than the front page headlines.

What ‘old person’ thing do you do?

My kids say I drive like a little old lady. And I have been known to crack the occasional Dad joke.

When was the coldest you’ve ever been?   The warmest?

Cold is a regular occurrence here in Massachusetts. It does occasionally get down into the -30’s F. I actually like being warm as long as I do not have to do much. I think the hottest I have experienced was on a Mission Trip to Mexico in August.

Do you eat food that’s past its expiration date if it still smells and looks fine?

I suppose it has happened I don’t usually check expiration dates.

Finally:

Gratitude (not mandatory to participate in)

If you’d like to, please share some gratitude from your life. 

I am so glad I got be part of my son and daughter-in-law’s wedding last week.
