Share Your World – 2014 Week 22

…..I may not be able to answer one of these questions

Regarding animals would you prefer not having them around or having domestics pets, farm animals, or seeing them in nature or the zoo?

I love animals and love having them around. I’m very much a dog person but we have owned a cat, gerbils, hamsters and budgie birds. I also enjoy seeing wild animals on my walks or seeing them in my backyard. P1020919 I know that a lot of people don’t like zoos but I’ve always had a soft spot for zoos. Over the years they’ve become better and for some the only way they would ever see some of the exotic animals that only a zoo can house.

Are you a collector of anything? 

I used to collect teddy bears but the collection became too large so I stopped asking for them. In the last few years I’ve been giving away some of my least favourite 3-160 IMG_1719

If you could know the answer to any question, besides “What is the meaning of life?”, what would it be?

Hmmm, I really have to think about this. I’ll come back to this one.   Later…..How do you answer this question?

If you were to treat yourself to the “finer things” what would you treat yourself to?

I would treat myself to extra fine sheets made from the best Egyptian cotton, the loftiest down comforter, and the best bed money can buy. I must be tired because I’m thinking only of sleep.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Last week I was grateful for my oldest daughter helping me put some finishing touches on the grade 5 project so that it would be ready for the silent auction. I’m also happy that my girls’ soccer team won the West Conference Finals and are now moving on to the City Finals. Lastly I’m grateful for the support from the kids and their parents for our annual Jump Rope for Heart fund raiser. So far they’ve raised over $6000. this year.

This week I’m looking forward to working on my report cards …..NOT. Actually I am looking forward to finishing them for the last time this school year.

  1. Is the Basset Hound in the photo yours? Both the dogs are cute but I’ve always had a soft spot for Basset Hounds. Those long ears and droopy eyes just melt my heart. 🙂 I’m with you on the 100% Egyptian cotton sheets. After a stay in a hotel this past weekend, I’ve gained a new appreciation for 100% cotton. Polyester is so icky!


    • The Basset Hound is my daughter’s and her name is Lucy. I’ve written about her in several posts. Last fall we dog sat while my daughter and her husband went on a cruise. While they were away Lucy needed emergency surgery which cost us over $7000. She swallowed part of a tennis ball which she couldn’t pass. We love her but Bassets are notorious for huge vet bills.


      • Oh dear, that’s awful! I’m glad Lucy is okay now but $7000? Yikes! I’m glad to know about the big vet bill thing. I’ll have give that some thought if a Basset ever comes our way.
