Share Your World – 2016 Week 7

This week I’m participating again in Share Your World with 4 questions and a Bonus question to allow you to get to know me a little bit. Here goes… Susan…

1.What are you a “natural” at doing? 

Most of my life I was a natural at nursing. I am a retired RN after 32 years of working. Now, however, I would say that I am a natural at writing, especially poetry and flash fiction. I enjoy all types of writing though and I am very good at doing my own editing.

2.Would you prefer a one-floor house or multiple levels?

Let me preface this answer with the fact that I live with my daughter, son-in-law, and two grandchildren, ages 4 and 6. We live in a two-story home and it works for me because I am in the master suite on the first floor at the back of the house. I have severe arthritis and fibromyalgia and can’t climb stairs except in an emergency so everyone else is upstairs to sleep and I have my own large living/bedroom and bathroom downstairs so it is perfect. If I lived alone, which I can’t anymore, it would have to be an apartment on the ground floor or a single level home.

3.What was your favorite subject in school?

I really loved any subject in school all through school except math. I hated math. My very favorite was English Literature and American History.

4.Complete this sentence: If only the rain…

STOP. It has been raining straight for 3 days and we have seen no sunshine. Of course, the week before was worse because it snowed all week so they closed schools all week…mind you, it was less than 4 inches but when it snows in Nashville, the whole city comes to a standstill. They are promising us sun and 60 degrees this weekend. I hope they keep their promise.

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 that my granddaughter, who was out of school last week because of snow, is back in school this week.This week I am looking forward to graduation from my Intermediate Haiku Class on All Poetry.

This week I am looking forward to graduation from my Intermediate Haiku Class on All Poetry. Also less rain and more sun and warmer weather for the weekend.
