Thanks to joey of Joeyfully Stated I’ve become aware of Cee’s Photography’s Weekly Share Your World Questions.
I’ve decided to answer them this week because I like to keep things fresh and vibrant around here. No same old, same old for me.

Q1: Have you done something you truly want to do today?
A1: Yes, I have. I started sorting through my clothes, accessories, shoes, focusing on getting rid of things I don’t like and/or things that don’t fit properly.
I’m not a clothes horse and would enjoy having less stuff to deal with every time I need to get dressed. Which is to say, every day. So this is a step in the right direction for me.
Q2: What can you help the world with?
A2: I’m better than the average bear at figuring out solutions to problems involving, but not limited to: understanding family dynamics; planning for any event; and decorating your home in a way that reflects your personality.
Yep, that’s what I can do for the world. Facilitate understanding about what makes people tick; get things done in an organized way; and support you as you make things pretty.
Q3: If life was “just a bowl of cherries”… which fruit other than a cherry would you be…?
A3: Difficult question. I’m torn between being a blueberry which would snuggle up smoothly against the cherries, OR a slice of kiwi which would contrast in color, shape and texture with the cherries.
Probably going with kiwi, but here’s an idea: we could kick the fruit salad up a notch by putting it in a carafe and pouring white wine sangria on top of it. Then it wouldn’t matter what kind of fruit any of us were.
Happy fruit is the best fruit, you know.
Q4: Quotes List: At least three of your favorite quotes?
A4: Thinking about funny movies I like…
“The world is made for people who aren’t cursed with self-awareness.” ~ Annie [Susan Sarandon], Bull Durham
“Laugh while you can monkey boy.” ~ Dr. Emilio Lizardo [John Lithgow], The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension
“I just find it amusing that you came from somewhere.” ~ Marcella [Joan Cusack], Grosse Pointe Blank

Bonus Q: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Bonus A: Last week we finished taking unwanted household items, formerly stashed in our basement, to Habitat for Humanity.
This coming week I’ve arranged for St. Vincent de Paul to come to the house to pick up used furniture, also formerly in our basement.
Those two events combined translate into a tidier basement, and a sense of relief about getting the right things to the right place.
