Diving in to Share my (your) world….…open up this cloistered life.🌷🦋
Regarding your fridge, is it organized or a mess inside?
I let it get messy and then spend an hour cleaning. I tell everyone (my youngest daughter is still home and of course my husband) put everything away where it belongs and it will save (me) time later. And then the leftovers! I need to cook smaller meals with less people home.
Do you prefer your food separated or mixed together?
My plate is as messy as my life. I mix fruit and vegies in with cottage cheese, among other combos. I won’t say in case I gross you out. I am not one to count my chips (like someone I know).
Do you prefer reading coffee table books (picture), biographies, fiction, non-fiction, educational?
Right now I’m swamped in textbooks which I find dry. The current “Abnormal Psych”. Ugh! I might recognize myself in there.
I have a few favorite authors; Wally Lamb and Irvin Yalom. Oh! and Patrick McGrath. They haven’t published new fiction and for far too long. Thomas Ogden does have a recent book and sitting on my “to-read” shelf.(And bloggers who have published!)
I love art coffee table books! I consider them my living room museum. I try my hand at painting my fav pictures. It always looks easier until you “just do it”. I have shared a few on this blog and one hangs in my bedroom. 👩🎨
And then I love to read letters/journals of famous people: “Henry James and Edith Wharton: Letters : 1900-1915” Lyall Harris Powers
I hold any writer sufficiently justified who is himself in love with his theme.
The air of ideas is the only air worth breathing.
I just ❤📚.
Close your eyes. Listen to your body. What part of your body is seeking attention? What is it telling you?
My head. I need a rest but no time so I use aromatherapy for all my moods. Lavendar and citrus two favorites. I really love the fresh smell of grapefruit/vanilla. I make my own blends and spray them all over the house.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Well…I would say my son’s first letter of acceptance to graduate school. (Waiting on the other colleges.) He is my other “to-be” Ph.D. mad scientist. My husband, Dr. Love 🤣. I cherish both my brainy companions, although my son has found a “true love”. Maybe a wedding in the future?
I look forward every week to spend time in creative endeavors. This is what keeps me alive. Quilting, writing, gardening (weather permitting) and cooking. The time approaches when I will need to pack it up. And I had for years. Depression saps energy and right now, with vigilance, I am able.
I know it long but thanks for stopping by, cyber friends.
Be well. J🌵😎
