Sharing my world 10/9/17

peanut butter and chocolateWhat do you consider is the most perfect food for you? (It can be your favorite food to something extremely healthy.) This is pretty much the same as a “favorite” question in that I don’t really have a perfect food for me. I like chocolate but it’s not my “perfect” food.  I do enjoy a good burger now and then, but again there is no burger that tickles that better than all the rest spot in my brainpan. And, as I mentioned before, I like nut butters, and peanut butter is my favorite, but it’s not the perfect food for me. Honestly, and I’m totally not being snarky here, I promise, the perfect food for me is whatever I’m eating at the moment because it’s fulfilling its duty — which is to bring me energy enough to get through the next bit of the day.  I’m not a foodie. I don’t really pay much attention to the food I’m eating beyond, is it palatable? Is it semi-nutritious? and/or — most importantly — will it make my gut hurt? Other than that, I’m good with just about anything.

It-is-what-it-isAre you focused on today or tomorrow? I’m very much an “In the Now” person.  Most of the people who read this blog are probably sick of me saying that, but it’s true. Now as in this very moment. Like, I don’t even worry about the rest of today because that’s in the future.  Okay, I have vague plans to do the dishes sometime later, but that’s about it.  Those plans could change at any time. It kinda drives my husband crazy because he plans out his day to the T, and I’m a fly by the seat of my pants kind of person… But it’s just the way I’m wired. I can’t do anything about the past, and tomorrow will take care of itself when it gets here (in which case it will then be “now”, but until then I won’t worry about it.) Now is the only moment we have, and I’m not gonna waste my time worrying about any other moment.  Yeah, yeah, we’ve gotta plan for the future, and as I mentioned, I make vague plans, but I know that nothing is set in stone because life happens and plans go awry — especially my plans. Ha! So now is always the best time for anything.


These countries mostly

If you could interview one of your great-great-great grandparents, who would it be (if you know their name) and what would you ask? I dunno.  I’ve already had the good fortune to know my great grandparents on both sides of the family as well as my maternal great aunt and uncles and they were pretty cool (we breed young in our family).  I got to know a lot of our family’s history through them when I was a kid and that was enough to sate my appetite for family history.  I have a pretty good idea of where we came from and what kind of “stock” I’m descended from. I’m a European mutt, some blue blood and a lot of peasant riff-raff from all over Anglo Europe.   And, being an “in the now” kind of person that I am, I never really had this driving need to figure out where I come from, so I never wondered about my grandparents past the ones that I’ve already met. I’m sure they were pretty cool too. I’m guessing they were the same mix of interesting people that make up the family today. And we’re a right mix of interesting people. Let me tell you that.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. Well, I’m nearly finished with the scarf I’ve been working on. I still have to put a fringe on it.  I’m making it for someone so I won’t post a picture of it. But once I have it finished, fringed, and sent off to the person I’m making it for, I’ll post a picture of it.  I’m on to the next project, which I haven’t really decided what it is yet… I’m thinking a long, rectangular shawl, because I don’t think I have enough yarn in my stash to make a blanket of it. but yeah… It’ll work as a shawl.  Eventually I’ll have worked through my stash… one project at a time. 🙂 That’s my goal, and I’m one step closer to it.

    If I had any driving ambition to discover my roots, I have long since missed the opportunity since all the senior family members are long since passed on. Besides, my family never talked about “the old country.” As far as they were concerned, they were Americans and whatever happened there was not important. I think I’ve inherited that feeling.

    I envy anyone who can fly by the seat of her pants. I come from a long line of worriers. I think I have improved a lot over time, and I also think I won’t live long enough to completely “let go”. It’s a work in progress like so many aspects of my world!
