Here are my answers to Cee’s latest Share Your World questions:
If you could hire someone to help you, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work?
Cooking is a joy for me, and not a chore, so though I would welcome anyone to join the fun, I could never hire someone to do it for me. Even when we have big parties, I relish the challenge of cooking a delicious meal for all. As far as yardwork goes, my husband likes to garden and I enjoy cutting the lawn, so we may only hire someone if it gets out of control (as it did last May during our vacation). But when it comes to cleaning the house, I wish I could keep someone on retainer. I hate the drudgery of daily chores and can’t seem to ever completely tackle the housework. I would LOVE to give that responsibility over to someone else.
If you were to move and your home came fully furnished with everything you ever wanted, list at least three things from your old house you wish to retain?
Sometimes a re-do sounds so appealing. That being said, I would keep my famiy photos. I think I’m the only one who actually looks at them, but they mean the world to me. I would keep my piano. It is an old upright that was a gift from my mom and has a beautiful sound. (And what dedication, to bring someone a PIANO!) I would take my struggling houseplants. Maybe a change of scenery would make them thrive for a change.
What calms you down?
A loving hug and/or a good run.
Being allowed to share my feelings.
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.
One day I was shopping alone in Made in Oregon. As I was checking out the Moonstruck Chocolates, I noticed a girl who was about 10 years old shopping with her mom. She would be talking, then all of a sudden start singing along to the Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas track that was playing in the background. She would then stop singing and continue talking to her mom, then start singing again. I don’t think she even knew she was singing. It was super cute and made my day.
Thanks to Cee for giving us a chance to share our worlds. Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season, whatever that means to you!
