Share Your World – July 21, 2020

Melanie, from Sparks of a Combustible Mind, poses these questions:

Where Do You Not Mind Waiting?

I am not as patient as I was once and my time is more valued as I get older. In today’s pandemic world I do not mind waiting, six feet apart for people just like me who are trying to survive.

What Is In Your Fridge Right Now (you’re not required to give a comprehensive list)

Milk, water, leftover spaghetti, fresh berries, cherries and lots of fresh veggies from my garden. And some cake I caved in and bought. Coconut for me, chocolate fudge for hubby.

If You Could Only Speak One Word Today, What Would It Be?

Hallelujah!

Would You Rather Be Trapped In An Elevator Full Of Men With BO Or Three Soaked Dogs?  (this is with the codicil that C-19 doesn’t exist)

Dogs of course. Please let them be puppies! 🐶 


An Attitude of Gratitude

My daughter, after being unemployed for 4 months after a pandemic layoff, found her dream job! 🙏🏼 

(I am also thankful I know HTML and CSS. 🤓 )

30 Day Film Challenge/Day 21

Today the challenge is a film that made me want to fall in love.

There are a lot of romantic movies out there. Wonderful old black and white classics as well as some more contemporary films are easy to find. There are romantic movies with tragic endings and movies of unrequieted love. Of course a good romantic movie can make you laugh (When Harry Met Sally) or might make you cry (Love Story) but they do not make me want to fall in love.

Innocent love for me is the purest of love. The kind where love is the anchor of everything and it makes the entire world delightful. So, for this category I chose “Benny and Joon” starring a very young Johnny Depp and the lovely Mary Stuart Masterson. It depicts the love worth fighting for even when the world tells you how incapable you are at loving.


I decided to take on this challenge for July after reading about it from SandmanJazz. Check out his blog and his entry for the twenty-first day of the challenge. Maybe even join in!
