SHARing my WORLD – AUGUST 20, 2018

Which tastes better: black or green olives?

Yuck, ick, feh. I don’t like olives, green, black or any other color. I also loathe anchovies. Slimy salty nasty stuff. Yuck, ick, feh.

What’s your favorite room in your home?

The living room with the bedroom coming in a solid second. But I really like most of the rooms. It’s just that we don’t use all of them anymore.

This house is bigger than we need.

What fictional family would you be a member of?

Fiction family? How about the Plantagenets? Can I be Eleanor of Aquitaine puleeze? Raise an army, live a really long time when everyone else is dying before me? So that all the people who hated me are long since deceased before me?

Orchard house where the Alcott (March) girls grew up. It’s in Concord, Massachusetts

Other than that, I could be one of the March sisters. Guess which one?

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  

We bought a newer car. More to come on this, but it was fun. Also, there was something unpleasant happening in the rear end of the older car. Possibly the differential or maybe more bearings. Whatever it was, expensive.

But now, NO problems. We have a three-year newer car for the same price and it only has 28,000 miles on it and … it’s so very ORANGE.

    1. When I lived in Jerusalem. everyone was sure if I tasted the RIGHT olive, I’d love it. The “close your eyes and open your mouth” thing got REALLY old!

      The new car is really cute. A bit small.


  1. Olives and anchovies. I could not have put it better myself. I hate them too. The new car will certainly be easy to spot on the road. They say yellow and orange are the safest colours and I do love seeing pictures of your house. You have such interesting stuff and it looks comfortable.


  2. Orange has a distinct advantage: you don’t have to wade through parking lots looking for the one orange one. My husband’s car (which I had to move on to, mine died) was his mother’s before that, and she chose sand/beige for the color. If it were any more sand colored, waves would wash over it. In a parking lot of neutral colored cars, it becomes invisible.

    It’s a very pretty car, enjoy.
