Share Your World — 11/14/2022

Share Your World

Di, at Pensitivity101, is our host for Share Your World each week. Here are her questions for this week.

1. Does the weather affect your mood?

Only if I have plans that will be affected (one way or the other) by the weather.

2. If a stranger smiles at you or says ‘good morning’ when they pass you in the street, do you return it?

I will typically return the smile or nod my head, but rarely speak.

3. If you had a choice of just one of these things to eat, what would it be and why?
Chocolate, a sweet pastry, a plate of chips/fries (this is not a forever choice, just one instance).

Depends what else, if anything I’m having. If I’m having a sandwich or a burger, I’d choose chips/fries. But if it’s a dessert following a meal, I’d go with a sweet pastry. And if it’s just a quick snack on the run, probably a Snickers bar.

4. If you could go back to when you were a specific age, what would that be? Why?

I’d probably go back to when I was 22 and had just graduated from college. That was the age at which I started my real life, and didn’t realize the ramifications of some of the decisions I made at the time. Of course, I wouldn’t necessarily want to go back to that age unless I would know then what I know now.


I was very grateful to have had some very specials friends as houseguests this past week. And now I’m grateful that they have left and I can get back to my regular routines.

    It’s nice to have visitors and nice to return to normal.

    I always say a hearty hello when I pass someone, I love to see the reaction. Most people nod and hurry past 😂

    For the most part, weather doesn’t affect my mood… except
    I love rain and snow and can hardly stand high heat if I have to be in it.
    That begs the question of whether I could stand being in rain or cold 🥶 long.
    If I could swim (in cool or lukewarm water) while the air was very hot, I’d be okay.

    How I respond or react to the stranger depends upon what else is going on…
    yet, if the person is passing by, I will generally return a smile and might speak.

    I had a wonderful cheese pastry after dinner at an Austrian restaurant, yesterday. But if I hadn’t eaten for a while and was hungry, I would choose (from among the three) a plate of potato chips or fries… unless I knew I could have something heartier next (in which case I would select the pastry first).

    I am thankful for conversation at home, then in the car and out, yesterday evening and for being reminded of Grandma’s cheese pie — which I hope to make for Thursday the 24th, this year.

      This would sure mess up a sunny day at the beach. I wonder if there is reason not to do it on a rainy day. (There’s a video.) 17-story


      Deauville Hotel fell into itself after a series of explosions were set off, sending up a large cloud of dust. The hotel was built in 1957 and [President] Kennedy spoke there to the Young Democrats Convention in 1961.

      The Beatles performed there in 1964, recording six songs …

    It’s nice to have visitors, but even nicer when they go home and you have the house to yourselves again.

    I’m still recovering, but I’m getting there. I’m REALLY glad I finally called the doctor. I have so many physical issues, I tend to not call because I figure it’s just my body doing its thing, but when the fever came up, I realized it wasn’t just me being me. Something ELSE was going on. I’d like to remind everyone that sometimes, you really do need a professional. I didn’t even have to go to the office. We did it all on the iPhone! Amazing, those little devices!

      What is the fever due to?

        I don’t know. It’s something and it responded immediately — almost instantly — to azithromycin — so probably bacterial. But not COVID. Three tests later, all negative and amazingly, no one else in the house is sick — except possibly Garry which should not be a surprise. Whatever one of us gets, the other pretty much always gets.

        Exactly WHAT? I don’t know. The doctor doesn’t know and unless I feel like going for extensive tests (I don’t), I probably won’t know. Mostly, I just want it to go away!

        Until the fever arrived, I’m such a mess everyone assumed it was just my body doing what it does. But — I don’t get fevers. This is the ONLY fever I’ve gotten that wasn’t a reaction to a COVID booster in more than 20 years — at least. It might be even longer than that.

          I’m glad the antibiotic is working.

      I’m glad you’re recovering. And yes, sometimes you really need to call upon a professional.

    In the same area as number four… if you went back would you do things different or just want to relive things?

      Good question. The answer is that I don’t know.
