Share Your World – May 1 2017

Share Your World is a fun way to get to know each other through our blogs.  Cee posts four random questions for those who want to participate and it’s always interesting to read what others have written in their responses.

  • Answer four questions each week.
  • Bonus Question is always the same “What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?”  Because we all need to be reminded that there are many things in our lives to be grateful about.  

The idea is to answer the questions without overthinking them and just have FUN. Feel free to join in by copying the questions, writing your answers in a new post and linking back to Cee’s original post.

This week’s questions are:

Would you rather live where it is always hot or always cold?

I live in the best place! We have cold winters (sometimes even snow) and hot summers. But the best part of living here is the fact that summer temperatures drop at night, so although the days are warm, the nights are cool enough to sleep comfortably.  In regards to the question though, I don’t know what I’d choose.  I love the heat but as I get older I find it more uncomfortable.  I have lived in a colder climate for over 26 years now and really enjoy the ability to layer clothes and the four distinct seasons. So if I had to choose I’d probably go with cold.

Do you prefer long hair or short hair for yourself? 

This is quite easy for me as it takes sooo long for my hair to grow, I usually give up and go back to having short hair. Even when I think it’s getting long (for me), my daughters bring me back to earth with a guffaw, telling me it’s still considered short.  My mother always used to tell me she liked my hair short, as it opens up my face and a lovely hairdresser I had years ago encouraged me to keep it short for similar reasons.  So I tend to follow their advice when it starts growing longer.  My husband on the other hand could grow his hair much longer than I ever could, and looked great 🙂

What is your favourite month of the year?

That’s a hard one.  I love December because it’s my birthday month and Christmas but I love the Autumn months of April and May too.  Spring is always beautiful in September and October! So by process of elimination I can tell you my least favourite months are June, July, August given they can be the coldest, dreariest, dullest months of the year which goes against what I just answered in the question above!!

These pictures were taken on the weekend in the autumnal golden glow of late afternoon sunshine. So beautiful!

What is the easiest way for you to learn something new?  By reading, by seeing and doing, in a classroom?

I learn by reading and then doing.  I find classrooms a bit tiresome now that I’m older and the fact that I’ve been a teacher for many years, could be the reason I feel like that.

Bonus questions:

Last week – Getting home after 3 weeks away, staying home for 4 days, before going away again. Also attending my husband’s official retirement dinner with great friends was something I’m so grateful for.

The week ahead – I’m staying home for a week and looking forward to being in the one place and one bed for more than a few days. It’s been quite hectic lately but so much fun to spend time with family.  It’s also the start of my daughter’s birthday month and I get to spend the day with one of them on their special day.

Thanks again for visiting my world.  Feel free to join in with this fun challenge and let me know your thoughts on anything I’ve written here.  I always love hearing from you.

Enjoy the week ahead everyone!

Deb 🙂
