Share Your World – October 9, 2017

What do you consider is the most perfect food for you? (It can be your favorite food to something extremely healthy.)

Perfect for me? Not sure how I would know that. That would seem to require medical testing or something.

My other favorite food!

Meanwhile, if I have to choose something that I enjoy more than most other things (in season, of course) it would be watermelon. It’s good for you. Great for digestion, very low in calories. You can eat tons of it in season … and for some reason, our dogs like it. Weird dogs.

I am terribly sorry watermelon season is over. I will have to wait another year.

Is it my “perfect food?” I’m not sure what that would be. I have favorites which are healthy and favorite foods I love but are not good for me. I also have favorites that make me actually sick, but I eat them anyway. Probably not perfect.

Are you focused on today or tomorrow?

Today and tomorrow. Mostly, it is rain, rain, go away. It has gotten so dark here, we’ve had to turn on the lights. It looks like night.

We finally got real color in our trees, but it’s raining and is supposed to rain much harder later. The whole week is all about rain and clouds. It seems unfair. I shall do the best I can, given the weather but  …

If you could interview one of your great-great-great grandparents, who would it be (if you know their name) and what would you ask?

I have no know what to ask. I can’t even create an intelligent question at this point. Maybe after the DNA results come back, it will give me a clue? It’s hard to figure out what to ask when you have no idea where they lived or what they did in their lives.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

I really appreciated the final arrival of color in the trees … which was followed by instant disappointment in the rain. You’ve got to be kidding!

Not even one nice day to go out and shoot? Even the dogs won’t go out. They are doing heavy play time — on the sofa.

  1. There is a season for melons here, but we don’t eat so much water melon, more the type that accompany our ham on the plate. We are in for a week of warm weather and sun next week. A very late Indian summer.


    1. We get those melons too, but when watermelon is in season, it’s cheap and you cam get almost a week from a decent size melon. I like the other melons too, though. They are not grown here, however. We get them from California or Florida usually. Watermelon is local.


  2. It’s gray and rainy here, too. Not our usual bright October days. I like your photos and wonder if I should make the effort to snap a few pics while the gray light shines. [Does that make sense? Maybe.]


  3. There’s a nice bit of colour out your window there, Marilyn. I’m focusing on today. We have to replace a screen door that has finally bit the dust. Tomorrow it will rain.


  4. Lovely country you live in as those photos prove. We are watermelon fans, too. Another favorite food is the avocado. I drink beet juice often. Of course, dark chocolate remains a favorite, and, fortunately, it is good for you if you eat only one square a day. It’s hard to stop at just one.Our weather is up and down. It can change 10 degrees from one day to the next. One day I wear shorts, the next day sweaters.
