Share Your World

I’m participating in Cee’s Share Your World challenge today.

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? 

My “go to” age used to be 29. Then, one birthday, I realized I was celebrating the 29th anniversary of my 29th birthday…

So, you’re on your way out and it’s raining. Do you know where your umbrella is or do you frantically search for it all over your apartment/house?

We live in Arizona and we don’t often have need of an umbrella, but I keep a few in the front hall right next to the door.


Do you recharge your energy by going out with friends for a good time or by spending with quiet time alone?

I prefer to be alone. I like to stay home holed up in my study, writing. But if I need a recharge, I’ll drive someplace beautiful where I can take a walk in the fresh air.

And a few times a year, I go on a writing retreat or to a writer’s conference with some of my friends.

Name three things you and your spouse, partner or best friend  to have in common.

We grew up in the same town, six blocks from each other, and went to the same church, and attended the same high school (but not at the same time; my husband is six years older than me.)

We were both teachers. He taught second, third, and fourth grades (and junior high science for one year); I taught elementary general music.

We both attended colleges in Pennsylvania. He has a B.A. in Geology from Lafayette College in Easton; my first school was Duquesne University in Pittsburgh.

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

I had a wonderful time with the Phoenix International Folk Dancers last Tuesday. Karen and Bill Faust came up from Tucson to teach us some new dances.

I look forward to every day. I have a wonderful life.
