Share Your World 2015 – Week 37

….thanks Cee for coming up with four more questions

If you could have three wishes granted for you alone, what would they be?

I would wish that my daughter has a safe delivery and healthy baby so that I can enjoy being the best grandmother ever.  My second wish would be that I win the lottery so that I could share my good fortune with my family and friends. My third wish would be that I remain healthy for at least another 20 years so that I can enjoy my grandchild(ren) and the money that I won in the lottery.

What is the most incredible natural venue that you’ve ever seen in person?

Long before I started blogging I went to Banff, Alberta on a skiing trip. The sight of the Rocky Mountains blew me away. I also worked in Bavaria one summer as a student and waking up to the Alps every day was also magical.

Is your hair short (total neck and ear showing), medium (covering ears and neck), long (below shoulders) or extra long (at least halfway down your back)?

My hair is medium to long. Currently it is just long enough to pull up into a bun. In this hot weather we’ve been experiencing I like pulling my hair off my neck.

List some of your favorite blogs.

There are too many blogs to mention them all but my current favourites are:

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

I’m grateful that my husbands tumour wasn’t cancer. It turns out that he has something called BOOP. When the doctor told us this we both asked ‘What is BOOP?’. He laughed and explained that it’s a build up of cartilage in the bronchiole tubes. It stands for Bronchiolitis obliterans with organizing pneumonia and is a very rare lung disease. After the surgery the lungs looked pretty good in the x-ray so the doctor recommended that we take a wait and see approach rather than prescribing steroids which is the usual treatment for this condition.

I’m also grateful that the first nine days of school have gone pretty smoothly. I’m hopeful that we settle our contract soon so that we don’t have to escalate the conditions of our ‘work to rule’. So far in this new school year the children and parents haven’t been affected by our strike action.

I’m looking forward to getting together with my daughters and my good friend, L, on Saturday. My youngest daughter is only two weeks away from her due date and I’m happy that she is still willing to make the drive to Toronto for a visit. I’m also looking forward to creating more art and finishing some knitting projects for the baby.

  1. Thank you so much … I’m very honoured to be in such a great company and to be chosen. Carol, thank you so much. Congratulation to the soon arriving grandchild and that your husband is doing better. The health is the most important thing for us all … I’m sure we will be here both in 20 years time, maybe not me … but another 15 for me. *smile

  2. I can imagine the HUGE sigh of relief to hear the news about your husband’s tumour! YAY!!! Sometimes we don’t dare hope for the best case scenario. Hopefully it’s all great news and improving health going forward. Very best wishes!!

    … and thank you so much for the shout-out. I appreciate it 🙂


  3. Thanks for picking my blog, and Banff is really gorgeous, I miss Alberta, good memories from there, I got married and had my 1st son there, in Edmonton. We used to spend the long weekends in Banff and Jasper. Have a lovely weekend!


  4. Many thanks for the mention, Carol. Hope all goes well with your daughter and so glad to hear your husband is okay. You’ve had quite a roller coaster of a time. Your grandchild is going to have such an interesting time getting hands sticky in all your projects.
