I’m glad to participate in Cee’s Share this week. I like the great questions and here are my responses:
What household chore do you absolutely enjoy doing? (can be indoor or outdoor)
I do the chores as a necessity, not as an enjoyment. The house is always dusty. I dust the house because I can’t stand seeing a layer of dust on any surface. We have Santa Ana wind and it’s gusty, so perhaps it’s one reason that the dust finds its way to get into the house. Another thing is that when the gardeners mow the lawns, they use the blower to blow the grass after mowing. The immediate house is clean, but the dust just goes from one house to another.
I don’t like pulling the weed, but they grow faster than my plants and flowers. I pull weed because I don’t want my flowers to get crowded.
Create a sentence with the words “neon green” and “train.”
If we take the train to Fairbank which is the northern terminus of the Alaska Railroad, we could see the neon northern lights – the Aurora.
Other than your cell phone what can you always be found with?
I found myself with the laptop more often than my cell phone. I use the laptop to pay bills, have a spreadsheet to categorize the expenses, have folders and subfolders of photos, research, have folders of writing projects, and manage my small business.
What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.
We arrived at the hotel in Anchorage around 9:00 p.m. on May 18, 2018. After we checked into the hotel, Lynton went for a walk at the lakefront.
I was on the laptop checking emails. After an hour, I started to worry the whereabouts of my husband. I went to the lobby and the bar to see if he was relaxing there after 6 hours of 2 flights. There was no sign of him. I went back to the 4th floor of the hotel. I walked a zigzag hallway from rooms 4000 to 4045. When I got to room 4030 area, a housekeeper stopped me and said, “Are you in room 4045?”
“Yes,” I was puzzled by the question.
“Your son lost the key. I let him in. He is okay now.”
My husband doesn’t look like my son. What is she talking about? Whatever she referred to, I want to see whom she let into my room.
The room was quiet when I went in. Now I suspected that the housekeeper might have let someone else into the room. I checked the area of my bags, nothing was disturbed.
It was 10:30 p.m. when I looked at the clock. The sun would go down at 11:00 p.m. If my husband got lost, it would be harder to find his way back to the hotel after dark.
I prayed for his safe return to the hotel. Before I finished my thought, Lynton came in with his key. Oh, he has a key. Whoever claimed to have lost the key, he wasn’t my husband.
Lynton told me that he walked far away from the hotel, it was as far to turn around as to go around the lake. He chose to walk around the lake. Going around the lake turned out to be further than his estimation. As he walked further, it made him harder to turn around. He ended up going the complete circle of the lake. Even if he walked at my pace, the lake would be at least 6 miles.
I was so happy to see him!
