Share Your World–2016 Week 1

Share Your World

As a child, who was your favorite relative?
This is a tough question. I’m going to say my paternal grandmother. Sometimes I went to her house for lunch or after school. I bought packs of gum with Beatles collectable cards inside. She encouraged reading, and I remember sitting with her on the front porch swing and reading the information on those cards to her. I don’t think any other adults were interested in hearing about them, so I thought she was really cool. I also enjoyed listening to her play hymns on her piano.

If you could be a tree or plant, what would you be?
A Peace Lily

What would be your preference, awake before dawn or awake before noon?
Before noon.

Would you like to sleep in a human size nest in a tree or be snuggled in a burrowed spot underground?
I think I picked underground when this was asked previously, but a human-size nest in a tree might be fun. Maybe I could get close-up shots of the birds that stop by.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I’m grateful to have had a relaxing, three-day weekend with hubby; more birthdays this week! (grandchildren)

Now it’s your turn! I hope you’ll share your answers with us. Create a post and link to Cee’s blog, or leave your responses in the comments. Thanks!

  1. Like you my grandmother (maternal) was my favourite relative. She worked hard, still had children at home, but always had time for me. I wrote a story about her.
    I would be a tulip. They bring much colour and joy.
    Awake before dawn, I get more done that way. (Now that I´m retired I tend to allow myself to sleep in though)
    I am claustrophobic so the idea of sleeping underground gives me the creeps so it would have to be in a nest in a tree.
    I´m thankful I had a wonderful New Year´s eve and day. Looking forward to working on my next book now that the festivities are almost over. (we have Three Kings Day here on January 6)

    • Tulips are lovely, and always one of the first welcoming signs of spring. I previously thought underground would be safer than in a tree (hurricanes along the coast) but I don’t think I could be without a window! LOL Maybe a nice cave? (Feet on the ground, sheltered). How exciting, a new book project for the new year!

  2. My Dad’s Dad, my Granddad.. 🙂 He was funny, he had integrity, and he loved me with all my quirky-ness, He introduced me to horses.
    I would be an Oak.
    Awake before dawn.
    I don’t think I’d be crazy about either of those sleep choices and if this has been asked before I would love to know what I answered… 😀

    Good Morning Patti!

  3. no tree, no burrow.. i want a log cabin with lots of windows and trees outside. I would be a palm tree. I loved my dad’s sister because she was a second mother to me, but for favortie would by my mothers mother because I am exactly like her, stubborn, bullheaded, different than other people, she was a today woman born in 1900. divorced in 1943 which was a scandal.. she lived on cigarettes and cokes and did what she wanted when she wanted. no one could tell her what to do… i don’t smoke or drink but the rest is me….

  4. Oh, I collected those Beatles bubble gum cards too! Wouldn’t it be wonderful to still have them?? (Or do you? I don’t!)
    I’m not sure who I would say was my favorite relative: I was close to my maternal grandmother, but I never wanted to be far from my mom.

  5. My maternal grandmother is the person that inspired my cooking, sewing, and work ethic. I love reading these questions and thinking on how I would answer them. There are some great thought provoking ones. I can see you up in that tree Patti!
