Share Your World – 2014 Week 12

Cee over at Cee’s Photography has a weekly Share Your World challenge where she asks 4 questions and you answer them. I enjoy doing them as it’s a great way to get to know the person behind the blogger.

Why not come and join us?

So here is this week’s questions and my answers.

What is your most favorite smell/scent?

This one is easy. Lemon! I’ve mentioned several times in other posts that I love the smell of lemons. It’s always so clean and crisp.  I do like other scents of course, Roses, lavender, a smell of a new book. But lemon is the #1 smell for me.

How do you write: computer, longhand, or other?

All of the above. I write most of my stories and posts on the computer. But I also keep notes in a notebook on my desk in longhand. I write letters in longhand. I also write sometimes in what I call Jackie hand as it’s my own kind of shorthand. It works for me.

Your favorite blog post that you have written? (add link)

This one was a tough one. I’ve written a lot of posts. As for my favorite? It will have to be this one:

It’s a very funny TRUE story. It’s hard to make this stuff up folks.

What’s one of your favorite books from childhood?

I was taught to read at an early age, around 4 I think it was. Since then I have been an avid and voracious reader. So when I was about 10 or so I used to haunt the local library and found the book by Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre. I fell in love with that book! To this day, it’s my favorite book as I think it has everything in it. Mystery, drama, horror, love and everything in between.

My other favorites at that time was the series “The Borrowers” by Mary Norton.

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

From last week I was grateful for my dog groomer Tammy, who comes out to the house with her little grooming trailer to groom Sam. Ever since I found her Sam has been calmer in getting groomed and it’s less stressful on me. I’m also grateful that Spring came, even if you wouldn’t know it around here with the snow and the -6C weather today.

I’m looking forward to warmer weather promised. Also, communications from good friends. I look forward to even better days ahead. Who could ask for more?
