Sharing My World 1/1/2018

What one word describes you best? I hate describing myself in any way, so I asked my husband and he said, “You’re more complicated than just one word.”

So, I said, “Then, complicated?”

To which he replied, “I guess, but in a good way.”

What is set as the background on your computer? I have my background set to change every six hours or so because it’s boring staring at the same old thing. I use screenshots from my Skyrim/Fallout 4 games.  Right now, this is the background on my computer.


I also have a program (called Fences) that hides my folders and programs because I don’t like a cluttered desktop.

If you have been to a foreign country name those you have been too? Travel is for the rich. I grew up poor and spent most of my adult life poor. Like lettuce sandwiches for lunch poor. What bill are we going to not pay to keep the lights on poor.  I’ve never been outside the USofA.  I didn’t get a passport until I was well into my 40’s.  I’d planned on getting a teaching job overseas but my health, lack of money, and fear of flying decided otherwise.  There was a couple of hundred dollars pissed away.

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.  Yesterday, we were in a cloud. That happens when one lives in the mountains, and it’s kinda cool when it happens.  So I ventured out into the cold to snap some pictures. Now, I’m not a photographer by any means, but I’ll share some of the better pictures with y’all.

I learned that fog is difficult to catch in a picture. 🙂  But I guess y’all can see it around the edges. It was really pretty.

    Pretty nice pictures, photographer or not. We get fog too. We aren’t in the mountains, but we ARE in a river valley with a lot of hills. I like the way fog disappears and reappears depending on if you’re on the up or down side of a hill.

    Sorry you never got to go ex-country. Most of us made it to Canada or Mexico, poor or not. I wound up in Canada when I was in the back seat of a friends VW bug because she decided we — me and her boyfriend — should go there in the middle of a night. We didn’t have ANY money. We let the VW roll down the mountains to save gasoline. It was a really unique travel experience.

      I’ve traveled more than most — on a wing and a prayer as they say. 🙂 And I’ve always wanted to go to Canada, but missed the timeline where one could cross the border without a passport. Now we need one — or at least an “extended” driver’s license.
