Share Your World

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

1. How long did it take you to get back into your normal routine after the holidays?

As a retiree, my normal routine is pretty routine and quite normal, so it took me no time at all to get back to my normal routine.

2. Which makes you feel more relaxed, putting your feet up in front of the fire with a good book or socializing with your friends?

Definitely putting my feet up in front of the fire with a good book, my blog, or an engaging TV show or movie to watch. I’m not one for socializing much anymore these days.

3. What is your favorite hot drink?

Coffee, of course.

4. If you are feeling poorly, do you prefer to be pampered, or left alone?

Most of the time I prefer to be left alone, although a little pampering ain’t bad.


I am grateful that after a week, my severe lower back muscle spasms have ceased and, while not yet 100%, my back is much better. I’m also grateful for all the well wishes I received from our blogging community.

    That’s good news. Now do be careful around your dog.

    Sorry to hear about your back 😦 Low back spasms are horrible and make doing everything just about impossible. Is this a chronic thing for you?

      Fortunately it’s not a chronic problem. This came about because of a fall I took on New Year’s Day when my dog’s leash wrapped around my legs and pulled me off my feet. I fell hard on the ground on my back. The severe back spasms lasted about 72 hours and I was in agony. But now the spasms have ceased. There’s still some stiffness and ache that will probably last another week or two, but I can deal with that. Thanks for asking.

    So many of us are not very social anymore. For us, a lot of it is lack of people living nearby. The friends we have are a few hours of driving away — not a real “day trip.” The really local ones died and we haven’t replaced them. Can you replace old friends you’ve known most of your adult life? I don’t think we can.

      It’s tough when you get older and your friends have moved away or died.

    That’s good news that your back spasms have lessened.
