Share Your World ~ 7/27/20

Here are the questions on tap for today.  Thanks Melanie!  If folks would like to join in, here are the rules and ping back.


Are you a clean or messy person?   I’m mostly clean with messy tendencies which means I am never satisfied with how clean things are.  I’ve talked a lot lately about sprucing up the place now that I work from home.  Since I am here all day every day, I notice stuff.  When I was leaving the house for work, not so much.  I could overlook some glaring opportunities.  That said I am going minimalist and conducting a Swedish Death clean.  I hear doing so is life changing 🙂

If I asked you to describe yourself in five words – what would they be?

Here’s two from my profile

quirky and sentimental

+ two

Loves, Reads, Listens

Look at me describing myself as verbs 🙂

Do you enjoy being out in nature?  Sort of, kind of, not really.  I do when the weather is right.  Ask me in the fall and I might switch my answer to a resounding YES!!!

What could you spend all day talking about?  As a geeky insurance nerd – work :).

Attitude of Gratitude:  (OPTIONAL)

I am grateful for the kindness of strangers.  Someone left a bag of no slip socks on my in-laws from porch.  Mary is not home yet but she is doing better. Being in the hospital without loved ones around is rough.  Notice I did not say alone.  The nurses are angels on earth. They spend as much time as they can with her.  ❤

  1. Thanks Jilly for Sharing Your Beautiful World! I hope Mary (your mother in law?) is doing well and can use those no slip sock-ettes. It’s so easy to fall and hurt oneself, if one is elderly. It’s a concern. Nurses (especially during this virus crisis) ARE angels. I’m glad she has some good ones caring for her! What a lovely list of words to describe yourself. “Quirky” is a great one! ‘Swedish Death Clean’ sounds formidable! It’s best though, if one is bothered by clutter, to embrace that kind of thinking. Much easier. I always liked a tidy, neat desk when I was working, but now I’m retired, well…the clutter has crept into every aspect of my life, save my ‘parlor’ (where I invite guests (when I used to get such) to sit and relax when they came to visit me. That area stays picked up and tidy, because one never knows who might drop in! 😆 Have a great week!

    1. She’s doing better yes. They want to get her into physical rehab facility aka nursing home as soon as she passes the COVID tests. I much preferred clutter free and am finally in the mental space to let go. The idea of making things easy for our kids drives me. Wishing you a great week too! Thanks for hosting 😊
