Hello people! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I know it’s Monday for most of us, but don’t let that get you down. It only lasts 24 hours!

Since it’s Monday, it’s time for Cee’s Share Your World, where Cee asks us four questions and we answer them. Why? Well to get to know each other just a little better. It’s a nice thing, enjoy! Or better yet, come join us!

If you were an ice cream cone how many scoops and flavors would you be and why?

I don’t really care for ice cream cones, so I think I will go with something else. Also, I’m a diabetic, so ice cream is a rare treat, usually reserved for the hottest days of summer. I love frozen yogurt. When it first came out years ago, it was kind of nasty. But now they have improved it a lot. If I can find a place that serves soft serve frozen yogurt, in a dish.  I would be there getting me some. So I guess my answer would be no scoops and vanilla or chocolate. Or both!

Are you left or right handed?

I am right-handed. I can write my name if I have to left-handed, but it’s not the best.

Before making a phone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say?

I do it a lot. I hate talking on the phone and avoid it if possible. If I have to call a company about something I practice and I write things down so I don’t forget. Introverts do this a lot. 🙂

How many rings before you answer the phone?

If I have to answer the phone I will let it ring about 3 times. Maybe 4. If I don’t have to answer the phone I don’t answer it. Ha-ha! Oh, and I don’t have voice mail either.  No way to leave a message. Yeah, I’m ancient school. Or cheap. Take your pick.

The reason for no voice mail is simple. I don’t have nor use a smart phone. Land line mostly. I got tired of messages from telemarketers or bots, so when my voice message machine died I never got another one. And have refused to put one on through my phone provider. Eh, if it’s important they will call back. Plus, I have caller ID, if I’m out, I check that when I get back and if someone called whom I want to call back I do, but usually not.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I am grateful for good friends, staying in touch with them on here or in emails. I am grateful that the weather seems to be getting warmer so spring can’t be far behind. I am looking forward to even warmer weather and longer days.
