Sharing my world 8/14/17

When you leave a room, do you turn the lights off behind you or keep the lights on throughout your house most of the time? As with all things, this is completely dependant on several factors. If I’m not alone in the house, I generally turn the lights off. If I’m alone in the house, the lights stay a-blazing. Too many spooky stories as a kid.  If I’m getting ready for bed, I start turning the lights off behind me until I’m alone in my room, then I tend to leave one on — usually the bathroom light — because I don’t like to sleep in total darkness when I’m alone.  If, however, there is even one other person in the house (that I’m aware of) then the lights in all the empty rooms will be shut off if I remember to shut them off. Sometimes I forget.

$450 +tax & shipping

What do you feel is the most enjoyable way to spend $500? Hmmm… $500 doesn’t go very far nowadays. I’d totally go thrifting with $500. That is, if I knew of any good thrift stores around here. >_<  I dunno, maybe having $500 burning a hole in my pocket would be a good way to find the good thrift stores around here.  Who knows? I know there’s one in town… somewhere. I just haven’t wandered around town enough to find it. The rest are in the towns around us. I know I’m not driving all the way to Seattle to shop thrift stores. Nope. Not happening. Of course, I have been looking for a good spinning wheel because much of the yarn that I harvest from used sweaters is not plied which makes it difficult to work with, and I need a spinning wheel to ply it if I ever want to sell it at any point. Unplied yarn just looks… blah.  Maybe I can find a cheap one for $500… Maybe.  I know they usually run upwards of $700. I have some drop spinners, but those things are sloooooow and they kill my wrists when I use them.  I just can’t get the hang of them. I’ve watched all of the videos, and more power to those who can spin wool with a drop spinner. I want a wheel, it’s fast and it’ll do the same job in record time.

Mostly pet pictures

Complete this sentence: My favorite thing to do on my cell phone is… Take pictures. Even as far back as flip phones with little to no memory, I took more pictures on my phone than I made phone calls. I’m not a cell phone person. I don’t like talking on my phone in public were everyone and their uncle can hear my conversation, and I hate texting, especially on touch screens. Since tactile keyboards are a thing of the past, that means I don’t do text messaging anymore unless I absolutely have to…  So for me, my favorite thing to do with my cell phone (other than shut it down) is take pictures with it. Yeah, I know they’re not *great* pictures. Snapshots really. I’m an amateur at best when it comes to taking pictures, but it’s still nice to have that function on my phone because otherwise those pictures would never get taken. A lot of the pictures I take on my phone end up getting deleted because they’re pure crap, but with a little editing I can make some of them look like they’re okay for public viewing. 🙂

    I leave lights on (low lights) in the living room so I don’t fall over the dogs’ toys … or the dogs. In the bedroom, we have so many electronic lights, it’s like having a night light anyhow. I have a nightlight in the bathroom — I hate turning on a really bright light if I’m intending to go back to sleep — and another in the kitchen. So there are always some minimal lights here and there. I used to walk around in the dark. One day, after barking my shin and stubbing my toes AGAIN, I realized I don’t have to do that. I can … gasp … TURN ON THE LIGHTS! It was a revelation!

      We have motion sensor night lights so we don’t bump into things. But mostly, I have excellent night vision so I don’t really need them. Douglas uses his phone light to get around at night.
