Di, at Pensitivity101, continues to serve as our host for Share Your World while Melanie, at Sparks from a Combustible Mind, continues her recuperation.
1. Do you prefer tea, coffee or juice first thing in the morning?
As I sit at my kitchen table trading my morning newspaper and enjoying my first cup of coffee of the day, the obvious answer is ☕️.
2. When it comes to food, what is your favorite smell?
I’d say bacon comes first, popcorn next, and freshly baked bread after that.
3. Do you prefer a take-out or to dine in a restaurant?
I prefer dining in, but I haven’t dined in at a restaurant since March of 2020. Well, unless you count yesterday, when my wife and I drove into relatively cool San Francisco to escape the triple digit heat where we live and met our daughter and her fiancé at a restaurant for brunch. We sat at an outdoor patio at the back of the restaurant, so I’m not sure if that’s considered dining in, but it wasn’t take-out.
4. If you are hosting a party, do you prepare the food yourself, get caterers in, or ask everyone to bring something for the table?
If we are hosting a small group, we will likely prepare most of the food ourselves, but if it’s a larger group (i.e., six or more), we will encourage others to bring something for the table.
Gratitude: What has been the highlight of your week this week?
I’m grateful, as the high temperature today is forecast to hit 113°F today, that the faulty control board on my whole house generator was replaced on Friday, so that in the event of a power outage today, which is likely, my generator will kick in and my air conditioning (and refrigerator/freezer) will continue to function.
