Share Your World Sunday Week # 25

This is the day of the week I look forward to the most in regards to my blog life.  This weeks were fun, thought-provoking, and inspiring. I’d completely forgotten about that I used to be a picky eater. Thanks to Cee this memory has surfaced and now I am making plans for a layout about this in an altered mixed media memory book. This is exactly one of the reasons why I like this writing challenge each week. It draws up memories in the strangest ways,

  1. What’s my favorite holiday and why?

This would be the Holy Season of Christmas. It was always my mom’s favorite holiday although she really went nuts for all holidays Christmas time she became a little girl again. I think I adopted my moms love for this time of year and then I had lids. There is nothing better in my heart than seeing the children at Christmas time. I love the bling of the decorations, the goodies that get baked, the time spent with family and friends over a hot chocolate with mint. This is a time of year when I believe stresses of all kinds should be set aside until the new year, letting the spirit of the season shine on all things with peace and jo

        2. Do you prefer your food separated or mixed together?

This is a funny question for me and only Cee would know why. Thanks for this Cee.  I was at one time extremely picky about how I ate my meal, but also how it was laid out on my plate. I visualized the plate being divided into pir wedges, each part of the meal had its own wedge, or in the case of protein – two wedges. {This was when I was a child so the plate was divided far different from it is today,} I would then eat each wedge’s food supply one by one. Not mixing the potatoes into my corn. Then I got married and had children. Two things happened. The first was my husband’s D’s fried potatoes and eggs. D makes the most scrumptious fried potatoes. I have had him try to teach me so that I could duplicate his technique letting him off the hook some weekend mornings.To no avail.  After frying the spuds he then adds the whole eggs, one at a time onto to the top of the spuds and gently finishes the egg. The 1st time he made this family recipe of his mom’s for me I was certain I not would not like it because the eggs and spuds were mixed. I was really worried about being able to politely try them without gagging. The very first bite was not polite. I could hardly get it to my mouth. I added a piece of crispy bacon bite to the spoonful, smelling only the bacon which I could eat day or night as I raised it to my mouth with eyes shut tight. I was prepared to get sick and to be embarrassed. Instead I was so delightfully surprised to find that I liked the salty crispy crunchy on the outside, meaty, fluffy, potato that has bits of scrambled eggs mixed throughout.(the bacon bite was my addition) I had completely forgotten than I was eating mixed foods. Today this dish is my all the time go to comfort foo and there are now some foods that I will mix on my plate as I am eating..

      3.Before making a phone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say?

No, I am strictly an Ab liber. There have been times when I was younger for particular business phone calls I would create a script. But I would get on the phone and my personality could not be reined in so it blew my script out the window and I would wing it. So my answer would be I wing it.

     4. When you are with your friends. Do your interactions include much touching—for example, hugging, kissing, rough housing, rubbing backs?   Would you like to have more of this?

I am a touchy feely kind of person. I am of the belief that humans need that touch from one another. I believe it is healing and something that we should be doing and feeling from others every day, at least. That being said I also have come to respect people’s space, not everyone I meet is comfortable with my touchy feely way. I try to get a feel if the person is into being touched by their interactions with others, and if ever in doubt I just don’t hug or touch. When I talk I have a tendency to reach out and touch a hand, a shoulder or an arm. I am by nature a deeply affectionate person and I’d be lost without affection being reciprocated.

I would always like more affection and more hugging. As long as it is sincere and not being done because it feels expected.

Six Word Saturday May 26, 2012

This week’s Six Wird Saturday is coming later (Sunday) than usual for me. Finding this weeks words was not hard, they have been with me all week. I appreciate the creativity in this challenge more this weekend for the different way I am able to express what has been a trying week. One which at times seemed to feel quite overwhelming these last few days. Not happening though. I will not be conquered by pure frustrationed. Sometimes a great motivator, other times a mountain in the way. 

Tomorrow will be different. 

 

Here are my six words:

Patience was not my virtue today~

Thanks for stopping by and having a look-see. I always feel much gratitude for your time.
