The Color Purple – Share Your World

For the Share Your World Challenge this week  The Color Purple

What would you name the autobiography of your life?   I would title it, A Whole Lot of Magic (and a little bit tragic).

Which do you prefer sweet, salty or buttery?  Salty! I’m hopelessly addicted to all things salty. Give me a margarita over a daiquiri any day of the week. Extra bonus points for salty and sweet, like a really good salted caramel.

What’s the finest education?  The School of hard knocks, of which I hold an advanced degree, probably even a fellowship. Seriously, I’ve learned more from raw experience than I ever have in any school.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.

Two of my kids had birthdays this week and that always makes me smile. One I gave birth to and the other I just helped raise but they are both of them so precious to me. If nothing else in life, I know that this I have done one thing well. Somehow in spite of myself I managed to raise two fabulous human beings.

Share Your World

Taking part this week in Cee’s Share Your World challenge

If aliens landed on earth tomorrow and offered to take you home with them, would you go? (remember this is SYW, they are friendly aliens)

— As long as they’re taking SuperHubs along with me (frankly, I think they’d be more interested in him anyway) ABSOLUTELY! SH and I are adventurers by nature and choice. Wonder if I could fit the SS Minnie with retro rockets?

How tall are you? Are you satisfied with your height?

—   64 inches, 5’4″, short. Am I satisfied with it? Well, I used to be but then I used to be 5’6″. I’ve lost about 2 inches to spinal compression and osteopenia. All in all I’m OK with it as long as I don’t lose any more height. Makes selfies with SuperHubs kind of a challenge since he’s still 6’1″ (he usually has to kind of squat down a little for the picture). 😉

Do you think you could live without your smartphone (or other technology item) for 24 hours?

— Yep, can and do. We travel overseas quite a bit and we usually lose all of our technology for at least 24 hours, sometimes more. I use the time to catch up on my reading.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? SuperHubs is off on a business trip and I HATE it when he’s gone. Life just feels all wonky. As I left the airport parking lot, all teary eyed, I saw this rainbow and I’ve been smiling ever since.
