Share Your World – Week 5, 2014

….here’s how I feel in this moment in time…..tomorrow my answers could be different

If you had a choice to live anywhere would be your preference salt water beaches, forest, fresh water lakes, hot tub, ski resort or desert?

My preference would be a fresh water beach. My cottage is on the most beautiful beach in Georgian Bay. The bay is part of the Great Lakes in Ontario. I’m only there in the summer so I might not feel the same way if I lived there in the winter, especially this winter. It’s been brutally cold. So if I were to live in one place year round I might choose a salt water beach in a warm climate.Image

What was your favorite toy as a child  . . . and now?

My mother hated clutter and if our toys weren’t put away they eventually ended up in the garbage. The only toy I can remember having for a long time was a baby doll that I named Dorothy. When you fed her she would wet her diapers and her eyes closed when you laid her down. Now my favourite toys are my laptop and my ukulele. I would be lost without my computer and I’ve only recently pulled my ukulele out of storage. Some day I might actually learn how to play it proficiently. Currently I know only a few chords. I need to practise, practise, practise…..

Which do you prefer sweet, salty or both at the same time? 

I initially wanted to say sweet but I actually love both at the same time. My favourite popcorn is Chicago style which is a combination of cheese popcorn and caramel popcorn. Yum!

Would you prefer snowy winters, or not, and why?

I prefer snowy winters but this year has been a bit much. It’s not the snow that bothers me but the frigid sub-zero temperatures and icy conditions have been extreme this year. I love the sound of soft crunchy snow under my boots and it has never stopped me from going for walks. The ice, however, this year has been treacherous and I spent some time in the emergency ward with my husband after he slipped and fell. Luckily he didn’t break anything but he did collapse his lungs and stretched the connective tissues between his ribs, causing him a great deal of pain. After three weeks he is just starting to feel better. Come to think of it, the winter where we had no snow and mild temperatures sounds pretty good right now.  We were able to ride our bikes all winter. Hmmmm!!!!!

  1. I just saw a show that featured the Georgian Bay islands. I had never heard of it before. That area would be great for the summers. I hope your husband is doing better. Thanks so much for sharing. See you next week and I hope it gets warmer soon for you.

  3. Lovely, to get to know you a little bit better, Carol.
    I love popcorn, but I love mine salty and buttery. I never had caramel popcorn until I lived in Victoria, BC. Terrible stuff *laughing.
    I agree with you about the winter – but the way you had it this year, I’m sure I can be without.
    Glad that your husband came out okay from his slippery fall. I slipped while standing still looking at a timetable a couple of years ago – and it took nearly a year before my shoulder stopped bothering me, but not damage as such. Just a muscle that got a band.
    By the way we have sunshine today … 9 weeks since last. So I’m not longing for that beuautiful sandy beach right now.
