I am a little later than usual getting round to answering Cee’s questions for week 8, but here I am now.

 

Your favorite blog post that you have written? (add link)

I’ve been blogging for a few years now, and rarely go back to what I have written, unless I need an entry for something else I’m writing. I know that the most popular of all my posts is The Long Goodbye, about Alzheimers and my father, and I think it’s a good one too. I will go with that, even though there are others that are equally good, or perhaps even better.

What do you feel is the most enjoyable way to spend $500? Why?

The most enjoyable way to spend $500 would have to be travelling in our little camper van through outback Australia. I lived and worked there for years and would love to take a reasonably leisurely trip to the places I never got to see while I lived there because I was too busy working. It is a selfish wish, and I know there are others who would benefit greatly from the money, so I am rather torn about it.

If you could know the answer to any question, besides “What is the meaning of life?” what would it be?

How can we stop war and aggression in the world?

Where do you eat breakfast?

I don’t. I have a very small snack with a coffee at mid-morning instead.

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

I am grateful for the support of my husband as I have been fighting a nasty bout of depression.

I am looking forward to my husband and I attending a casual dinner with our sailing association on Saturday.

  1. Not sure how I missed your post “The long Goodbye.” I read it now Linda. Such a wonderful post, sad but so full of humanity.

    • Thank you Don. Glad you have seen it now.
      It is difficult to see someone lose what they were – in Dad’s case, his memory. I can’t believe it is 20 months now since Dad died, & the post was written some while before that.

  2. Camping was my first thought too Linda as was the outback. Let’s hope we have a windfall some time soon and meet there 🙂 I haven’t read The Long Goodbye so I will have to rectify that while I’m on holidays. Hope things are starting to pick up with your bout of depression. Hugs to you xo

    • Thanks Linda. I’d love to ‘do’ part of the outback with you! 🙂
      Improving slowly, rather up and down, but I am not unhappy. Many thanks Linda. Hope we can catch up again after you get home from NZ. 🙂

  3. I’m glad to hear your husband is supportive of you. That at least takes some of the burden off of you. Enjoy your weekend. 🙂
