Share Your World – 2015, Week 19


….this week’s questions are all about the home

Thanks Cee for hosting this challenge.

Would you prefer a one floor house or multiple levels?

I currently live in a two story house. I think climbing stairs for the last 35 years has kept me fitter than many people my age but I do know people over 60 who would definitely prefer a one floor house. Arthritis, bad knees, hip replacements and poor circulation make stair climbing difficult. Fortunately I don’t suffer from any of these ailments. As I get older I often wonder if I’m going to have to give this place up because of the stairs.

If you have a TV, would you prefer the TV in the living room or another room?

We have purposely put the TV in a room other than the living room. When we have company we don’t want a TV to distract from stimulating conversation. I also like having a room where I can work or read in a quiet space without the noise from a TV.

When you leave a room, do you turn the lights off behind you or keep the lights on throughout your house most of the time? Explain your answer.

More and more I turn the lights off. When the kids lived at home we kept them on because everyone was on a different level of the house. Now we turn the lights off to save energy and money.

What’s your favorite room in your home?

My favourite room in the house is the living room. It’s the one room that’s always tidy and it’s where I like to read and work on my laptop. When we have company everyone gravitates to the kitchen. It’s the room most difficult to keep tidy because my husband loves to cook and bake and if I’m not right behind him cleaning it can get messy in a hurry. Luckily my girls are pretty good at cleaning when they come to visit but I like to make sure that the kitchen is somewhat presentable before they get here.

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

It’s been a tough week. We were over the moon with the news that my husband didn’t need the radioactive iodine treatment but a week later we found out that he needed to go for a biopsy on his lungs. The procedure took place today and I’m grateful that it went smoothly and without any complications. Now we wait again for the results.

This week I’m looking forward to a less stressful working environment and some down time at home. It’s definitely time for some art therapy and reading.

  1. Love the house–great curb appeal. It looks like a house filled with music. Enjoyed seeing your artwork. Hoping for a good report for your husband. I’m sure you were ready for some art therapy!

    • I always tell my students that we all have some kind of artistic ability. You need to explore where your artistic strengths lie. Just start playing with paper and paint, pen, pencil and scissors. Have fun!
