Share Your World – 2014 Week 18

What object do you always have with you when traveling and why?

Canon cameraWhy…because it has become another limb.

What subject would you like to study in depth, if given the time to do so?

 Mythology. So I can invent my own a little better.

14 - 13.2.2013Which would you prefer:  a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks; or a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family without such wide swings of fortune and mood?

Okay…so do I look or sound like a person who wants a contented bordering on happy, secure, predictable life surrounded by friends and family ??? Do I ??? There are moments it would be nice…but it has never been MY LIFE. The one I have got will do just fine – a wild, turbulent life filled with joy, sorrow, passion, and adventure–intoxicating successes and stunning setbacks.

You do remember this I hope…


What are your favorite spices?

Most of these are in my garden. Except for the garlic, ginger and the bottled ones of course. Sadly coriander season has finished here but as it is one of my favourite herbs I keep a bottle handy.

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

Last week I was grateful for all the love and support that came my way, from friends, from bloggers, from family in dealing with of the loss of Crash and what it meant to me. I was also grateful to my wonderful vet and her staff who cared for Crash and then took the time to care for me.

As for what I look forward to this coming week…spending time with these guys.

Taking walks around Katikati.

And whatever else comes my way.

Thanks Cee…for the chance to share a bit of my world. Oh and…just for the heck of it and because it is sooooo cute. A video of goats riding horses.

  1. I can see you with the happy contended life. You would sit there and smile and think “I am happy and contended. What more do I need? Are you kidding? I need it all!!!!” hehe


  2. I like the answers to Share Your World. Eye-opening,
    You take outstanding pictures, Jo. Fantastic.
    Can’t live without garlic and I like ALL your herbs.
    Heartwarming the Vet Team took the time to send a note.


  3. Loving the mountain shots of Kati Kati. Don’t let me know where you live, you are so good of a photographer that I might be tempted to steal your camera. 😀


  4. What a terrific response to the challenge Jo. Thanks for giving us this insight into your world and I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your pet. Animals can be like soul mates sometimes. I hope this week brings you unexpected joys.


  5. I would love to be the exciting etc type, but my health say to me the lesser is me.. Not to say that I didnt do some outrageous and naughty things heehee! Love your piccies as well, if I remember I try take my camera with me, but I do have a habit of forgetting. I hope your world is getting better… 😉


    1. I bet you were quite the handful way back when…tehe. Yes my world is good, just a sad moment every now and again. Thanks though, for taking the trouble to ask.


There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
