Sharing my world 9/4/17

color_wheel-warm-cool-300x296What color do you feel most comfortable wearing? So long as the  clothing fits, is comfortable, and looks good on me, I’m happy with it. Okay, that’s a lie. I have an… unfortunate shade of skin and I need to be careful what color I wear. I look pretty awful in red, so I don’t wear red as a general rule. And some shades of pink are right out. And yellow, I can’t even try to wear yellow. Last time I wore yellow, people kept coming up to me and asking me if I felt okay, if I was going to faint, and if I needed to sit down. I just don’t wear yellow anymore. I look okay in certain shades of brown, but I try to avoid it because brown also makes me look sickly. Black is okay, and most shades of green — the shades that are closer to blue. Blue is great, and purple is fabulous, unless it’s bordering on pink, then yeah… not gonna happen.  I guess anything on the “cool” side of the color wheel, I’m good with. Once it goes over to the “warm” side, it just makes me look like I’m ill and need to lie down.

What is your favorite type of dog? (can be anything from a specific breed, a stuffed animal or character in a movie).  I like mutts.  I like dogs that cannot be identified by their looks. I like dogs that don’t belong to a particular breed.  Why? because that means that their parents have basically said, “screw you” to the humans trying to control them and had fun when they pleased and where they pleased and they (the mutts) were the outcome.  I’ve never ever like purebred hounds (not the hounds themselves, just the idea of it) as a general rule because I don’t agree with the idea behind breeding dogs for certain looks, traits or… anything. And it’s detrimental to the dog’s’ health in the long run. Purebreds have more physical and mental health issues than any mutt ever will, and it’s all the human’s fault for breeding them. Give me a mutt any day of the week.  That goes for any animal by the way — I just don’t like purebreds of any kind.

List at least five favorite flowers or plants.  As with all things, I don’t have a favorite, let alone five. Though, in keeping with my theme above, I prefer wildflowers to hothouse flowers. Why? because they thrive where they’re supposed to and do not need tending. I’ve never been one for “gardening” and while others ohh and ahh over a garden, I’m all, “Yeah it’s nice, but I shudder at how much work it takes to keep it looking like this.”  And I cringe at the resources used to keep a garden green and blooming.  That’s one of the reasons why I’ve never had one, because I can’t afford the upkeep — in time, money, or energy. Also, it’s more aesthetically pleasing to me. Give me my meadow full of wildflowers over a well-tended, award winning garden any day. Not because I’m lazy, but because, to me, that’s how a patch of land should look.


What inspired you this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

I’ve been playing around in Photoshop… This is a screencapture from one of my Skyrim games that I fiddled around with to make it look this way, and a quote that came across my facespace the other day. I thought they matched.

    I agree 100% about the meadows vs gardens trimmed within an inch of their life!!
    Green is ghastly on me!!
    So, if you set him on fire, to be warm for the rest of his life, isn’t it going to be rather a short rest of his life?? lol sorry, couldn’t help it!
