Sharing my world

Among Cee’s weekly challenges is her “Share Your World” challenge.  While I’ve only participated in one of these so far, this one caught my eye.

If you had a shelf for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronic devices and things stored on them, people or animals), what would you put on it?

If you had a box labelled ‘happiness’, what would you put in it?

What do you want more of in your life?

Daily Life List: What do you do on an average day? Make a list of your usual activities you do each day.

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

I have to admit that first one is a poser (in the sense of “a question or problem that is puzzling or confusing.”)  The books I’d like to put there won’t even begin to fit.  The English teapot from my great aunt would fit and as I use it every day, I’d best include it.  If I can’t have my books, I’ll include my library card and maybe, if I stack my journals on top of each other, they’d be considered one.  Hmmmmm.  I guess I should be thankful for the exclusions!

A box labelled “Happiness” would be stuffed full of faith, family, friends as well as travel/vacations, tea, books (yes, there they are again), food, photography things, being outdoors, wood-burning stoves and cabins in the mountains…enough.  You get the idea.

What do I want more of in my life?  See the above paragraph.

I work two very full days a week at a tea shop.  My other days tend to include a walk in “my” park, taking photos during that walk and at any other possible moment, time spent on my blog and trying to keep up with other blogs as well as other friends (via snail mail, email or Facebook), having tea, taking care of some part of the things that need to be done in the house a/o yard at that time, fixing meals, reading, watching something on Netflix/a sporting event/one of our few TV shows with my husband, using my rebounder while doing one of the aforementioned activities with my husband, lifting weights or just taking time to sit and think.

Last week I was visiting my parents in Arizona, with short visits with my brother and his family included.  That was a blessing.  Besides the family time, the warmth, various art shows we attended, and being able to pick lemons from the tree to bring home were all things for which I’m grateful.  This week I’m looking forward to spending time with my husband again, getting back to my job, starting to organize our tax things….STOP!!  I’m NOT looking forward to that in the sense of it being something I’ll enjoy, but it’s in my weekly plan.  🙂  I’m also looking forward to singing with praise team this week at church, something I really miss when I’m away, and getting back to our every-other-week Bible study.

I’m Janet Webb and I approved this post.

  1. I always would add books too… I can’t imagine a life without :o)

  2. Love, the last line. Thanks for the smile and glad you had a good trip. 🙂

    Well, I’m Emilio Pasquale and I approved of this post. Hope you keep posting SYW’s as I enjoy getting to know more about you!

  5. A look about your room, across the shelf shows a life being well lived.

    I never said that the shelves had to be small. It can be as big as you need it to be 😀

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
