What one word describes you best?

Searching……..

What is set as the background on your computer?

My sweet James

not this photo but I realized my background shot of him is too cluttered…

 

 

 

If you have been to a foreign country name those you have been too?

O man, a great way to answer this question would have been to put a small photo from each country right here. But they are all paper photos, in albums, in boxes, in the storage cabinet…the absolute last things to let go of in our current downsize (and the first things to save…well, after cats and people…if there is a fire.)

But here are the countries…not very many:

Mexico-all through childhood, having grown up in San Diego

Canada-also often, having lived most of my adult life in Washington state

France-for the 1192 Paralympics, Albertville and Tignes were the two places I visited as I was then married to a cross-country ski team member who was blind. (He got the bronze.)

Fiji-twice, sailing the Southern Lau Group both times and for more than a month each time

Jamaica-three times, twice for USATAA conferences and once, a just for fun trip

 

This could be seen as a pretty boring list but I wonder how many STATES in the USA others have camped in? For me it is FORTY SEVEN out of fifty!

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.

Share Your World – January 1, 2018

Weekly Photo Challenge-Repurpose

 

It started as a wood working art studio, a contractor’s workshop, and a music¬†rehearsal room! In the photo above you can see the performance stage on the front. There is terraced seating up the hillside (off to the left). For almost ten years, local musicians, sometimes as many as 20, came to perform their original music at a good sized “Jam”! (enough of an audience to need several rented Porta-Potties)

But we needed space for company, so James worked his magic and built us what I call our “Bed and NO Breakfast”! (I ain’t cookin’ for no one!)

Repurpose

Casa Esmeralda-before and after re-purposing!!

Wanna come for a visit? Only thing is the turkeys come through at 4:30 AM during the longer days, having roosted overnight in our trees. They can be pretty noisy, especially during mating season!

I get to REPURPOSE a lot of Turkey feathers!!!
