Share Your World-2015 Week 1

Welcome to the 2015 Share Your World challenge!  I am excited to get started on this one right at week 1.

How do you get rid of pesky phone calls from telemarketers?

I just never ever, I mean EVER answer them!  Sometimes they are persistent for awhile but they stop.  It will be quiet for a few weeks and then they try again.  And if you wonder, YES we are on the Do Not Call list!  Imagine if we weren’t!  I wish political calls could be added to that!  The phone rang off the hook last election cycle.

What are you a “natural” at doing?

Hopefully, writing. Cooking and baking come naturally to me. Empathy comes naturally to me….although, I guess that isn’t actually, naturally ‘doing’ something. Is it? I am a natural at figuring things out. For example: I wanted to make a t-shirt quilt for a benefit and had no clue. I think it turned out pretty good for not knowing what I was doing! I had to figure out how to do a second one, too as the shirts were not uniform in size.


My son just reminded me that I am a natural worrier!  He is more than right!

How often do you get a haircut? 

I get a small trim every 7-8 weeks because I am there for other things!  (What, you thought this color was natural?) When I was younger, my mom cut my hair short.  I disliked it greatly. In 6th grade I started growing my hair and didn’t get it cut again for YEARS.  It was the same way after I lost it all during treatment.  Once it started growing, I let it for awhile. Because I COULD!

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “fun”?

Traveling! Anywhere… LOVE New York City.  LOVE traveling to places I have never been before. Nothing more fun than that! I love experiencing places new to me, shops, restaurants, and people!


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

Last week we celebrated our 29th anniversary, as you know.  I am grateful that we are both healthy and here to celebrate it!

I am looking forward to staying inside and keeping warm out of the below zero temperatures and winter storm we are expecting!



  1. Gah… didn’t mean to paste that link in!! My internet is all screwy. I meant to say… LOOOVE those T-Shirt quilts and you taught yourself?! that is amazing!! I made one once but had a friend help me. 🙂 You rock!!

  2. North Iowa Bloggers–you must be friends with Beth Ann! Nice to meet you. My mom kept my hair short, too, and I let mine grow, too, once I was the one responsible for taking care of it. I use “taking care” loosely, as I ironed it (with the clothes iron) to get it straight-ish. More like fried! Nice travel shot, and you did a nice job on your quilts.
