Here are my answers to Cee’s Share Your World questions for this week.
Wanting something to quench your thirst, what would you drink?
Water – first, last, always, and only.
There are lots of things I can drink for pleasure but after a lifetime of being active and practicing various sports, I know my body well enough to know that the only thing I really need is water.
The annoying adjustment I’ve had to make since my heart failure diagnosis is to reprogram myself out of the habit of drinking at will to stay hydrated the way I did when I was much more active.
They now have me on a total liquid intake limit of 1.5 litres per day; I used to drink at least that much during a two-hour bike ride.
What made you feel good this past week?
What made me feel good last week? That’s a little personal don’t you think? After all, a gentleman doesn’t kiss and tell… 😉
Oh you didn’t mean that kind of feel good? Oops, sorry!
Well in that case, doing our income tax reports and knowing we’ll be getting a little back rather than having to send more to the government, that felt good.
However, the big feel good was celebrating Honey’s birthday. We went for a walk and drinks in Old Montréal before coming home to a quiet romantic supper, then I got to spoil her with breakfast the next morning too.
When you’re alone at home, do you wear shoes, socks, slippers, or go barefoot?
Unless we have visitors I almost never wear shoes in the house. In summer I’m usually barefoot.
Since I have long given up the battle for control of the household thermostat and it seems Honey would be right at home living in an Igloo, in the winter I’ll wear slippers and maybe socks. Plus a hat, and a sweater, and gloves…
Would you rather live where it is always hot or always cold?
I don’t do extreme temperatures very well so I guess it depends on how hot or how cold. Generally I find it easier to add a layer or two to warm up.
But if the choices are permanent residence in either Death Valley or Greenland, I’d probably go with the desert because, air conditioning 🙂
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
The past week or so has been a roller coaster. Literally a mix of funerals and parties. Life is like that sometimes.
So what am I grateful for?
Life and the gift of being healthy enough to enjoy it. Family, friends, loved ones, blog buddies, all of it 🙂
With a short week for the Easter holiday it’s going to be crazy at work. I’m looking forward to the long weekend though. We’re having a gang over for brunch on Easter Sunday which should be lots of fun.
Thanks for reading 🙂
