Share Your World

Have you ever participated in a distance walking, swimming, running, or biking event? Tell your story.

I am not a biker or swimmer, but I do walk alot and love it. I have never participated in any kind of walking event though. My husband and I walked 12 miles through a park that crosses through a few towns in our area one Sunday. My idea was to park a car at each end so we wouldn’t have to walk back- I figured 6 miles was enough, but he thought better of it and we left both cars at one end. We reached the end of the 6 miles, sat down and had lunch and he said he wished we had the car. Oh well. We walked back and slept very well that night.

Name one thing not many people know about you.

Hmmmm. That’s a hard one since I feel I have revealed so much about myself on my blog, and in “real life” basically what you see is what you get. I think people are surprised when I tell them I can be quick to anger- those who have not experienced it first hand, that is. I can have a short fuse and I also have the ability to cut people out of my life pretty easily. My father was like that, so I don’t know if it is learned behavior or partly just how I am wired. It is not something I like about myself, but have a hard time changing. I am always being put into the “escalation” department when on the phone trying to sort something out with an insurance company or the likes because I lose my temper and start yelling.

What is your favorite flower?

Hydrangea. I do love Peonies. Oh and I must include Bleeding Hearts. They are a miracle to look at.

Things I want to have in my home (paintings, hot tubs, book cases, big screen tv etc)

I just sent 8 huge garbage bags off this morning with Purple Heart donation center- I am trying to rid the house of the extras I don’t need that are taking up space. I do love the books and the knick knacks that hold special meaning because they were gifts, and some of the paintings hanging on the walls for the same reason.

Grateful everyday.Share Your World

  1. You look very purroud in the first picture, DM. Six miles isn’t nothing, it’s six miles, so you must be purroud. I think every mile is something to be purroud of. Granny is a biker. The longest distance she has ever biked is 206 miles on a bike with three gears, only two working, in the hills, from Luxembourg to Rotterdam. She loved it! I have the same temper as you, learned that from Granny…MOL πŸ˜€ Pawkisses for a Happy Day πŸ™‚ ❀


  2. I love bleeding hearts too…. they touch my heart immediately :o) btw: I love your outfit for the walk… think that is a super idea to mix a dress with sneakers… BRAVO!
    btw btw: I often wish to have the car near me when we walk long ways…. sadly the gm-ride has no wings ;O))))


  3. I keep dumping stuff, but somehow … it always comes back. And back. And back.

    One of the reasons I really like writing is I can let it cool off. It’s one of many ways to control ones temper.


Thanks for stopping by-Would love to hear what you think!
