I’m usually doing photography challenges with Cee and company, but this week for the first time, I’ve decided to participate in the “Share Your World” challenge.  Cee poses questions and we answer them.

In your native language which letter or character describes you best?  Why?

I hate to begin badly, but I really don’t know.  I’ve thought and thought about it, but I can’t come to a decision.

What is your greatest extravagance?

In terms of cost, my greatest extravagance to date would be travel.  However, books are what I buy the most often, at least until recently when I’ve been working hard to not buy any.  This is only because I have so many already.  Since I buy  almost all my books either at the library sale ($1 for hardcovers, $.50 for paperbacks) or at Half Price Books, it’s never a financial extravagance.  Photography is something I’ll be spending more money on soon, but I’m from a frugal family and I’m frugal, too.

Do you prefer exercising your mind or your body? How frequently do you do either?

Yes.  🙂 I like doing both.  I walk in the park usually three times a week and before I started working part time, I walked five mornings a week.  I try to lift weights three times a week as well, although I’ve gotten out of that habit.  I really enjoy lifting and I do stretching as well.  I also bought a rebounder and am using that daily for bone strength and density.  As for my mind, I try to exercise that daily!

List at least 5 things that makes you laugh.

Any of the Pink Panther movies, so that’s at least four or five there.  “Anguished English” and pretty much any other books by Richard Lederer.  “NCIS” makes me laugh every week. Word humor and the oddball things I see in the world around me (hence my enjoyment of the Oddball Photo Challenge) provoke daily laughter   Today, the beauty of the snow made me laugh for joy.

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 for time spent with my husband and that he has a good job. I’m grateful for the snow we got and the beauty that it brought. I’m grateful to sing alto with the praise team from our church and for our church family.  I’m grateful for the library and books and for being able to watch hockey on TV.  I’m also grateful that I blog and found such a great group of online friends. And yes, that’s all from last week, although it may also be most weeks.

I’m looking forward to traveling to my s-i-l’s for Thanksgiving.  I love road trips of almost any kind, we’ll have good company, good food, and good wine, and I won’t have any chores or work that has to be done, because I’ll be at someone else’s house!  That means I can just relax.
