Share Your World – 2014 Week 5

1) If you had a choice to live anywhere would be your preference salt water beaches, forest, fresh water lakes, hot tub, ski resort or desert?

Well, I live in the middle of a watershed made up of rivers, tributaries, ponds, streams … so I’d have to go with fresh water lakes.

Just across the border in Rhode Island is a park with a boat slip, a beach ... a smooth lake perfect for swimmers and small boats. It's part of the Blackstone River watershed

2) What was your favorite toy as a child . . . and now?

Dolls. I was and am quite passionately attached to dolls. I own all the dolls I had as a kid plus a couple of hundred more. We get older, but we are always children 🙂



3) Which do you prefer sweet,salty or both at the same time?

Both, really.

4) Would you prefer snowy winters, or not, and why?

NOT NOT NOT. Why should be obvious.

  1. The #4 photo screams NO to snowy winters loud & clear!


  2. I’m with you on the snow.
    Wouldn’t mind living in one of the desert areas with a good ski mountain nearby…


  3. I have to dig my car out from snow like that…No thank you. I like that you are still into dolls. We do have to still be kids somehow…..


    • I started collecting as a kind of return to childhood thing. I could play with dolls again, but I could call it “collecting.” All doll collectors at heart just want to play with their dollies 🙂 I keep looking out at the cars and sighing. It snowed a lot overnight. It wasn’t supposed to do that.


  4. I already guessed you answer to the “snow” question!
    Made for some good photos, though.


  5. If I could live anywhere I wanted, I would live near fresh water lakes….Lake Huron would be my first choice, but I would be very happy living on any fresh water lake (as long as there were no motors allowed). I love the smell, the sounds of water, the wildlife, the sand….all of it.
    My favorite toys as a child were my stuffed animals. I had dozens and dozens of them, and they all held a special place in my heart. They all had names, and were attached to the people who gave them to me. They brought me comfort when I was sad or scared, and they brought warmth and imagination to my bedroom. Now that I have living pets, I would say my favorite toys art based. Spirograph, Lite Brights, paper dolls…things like that.
    Sweet and salty together!
    As far as winters go…I love the snow. I find it magical. About now, I am longing for Spring, but Snowy winters have their place and I wouldn’t want to be without them.
    This post got me thinking of my next post…thank you 🙂


    • I loved the snow when I was a kid. Even up through young adulthood, it was still magic. But these days, getting older with bad backs — and with falling so big danger — I could look at it all day with bliss as long as I never have to walk in it or move it around. It is beautiful … but heavy, slippery, wet … and there is so much of it.

      We live in and around lots of water and I can’t imagine living in a really dry place where I couldn’t get to water easily. Even in Jerusalem, the Mediterranean was just 40 minutes away.

      I had a spirograph. They were very cool!
