Weekly Cee Neuner tosses some questions out for anyone to answer about what makes them tick. Many of my readers may not find some of this too interesting, but it is a social kind of thing which I am told is a necessary process of learning about yourself.
How many languages do you you speak?
Sadly I can say over my life I only have developed the ability to speak one language. When I was in 8th grade our school had something called Exploratory which allowed us to dabble in classes we might want to take in later years of high school. I had six weeks of French then and found it interesting, but not nearly long enough to make an impact.
What are you reading, watching, listening to, eating?
At the moment I am only writing. The house is pretty silent. Out the windows behind me there are plenty of bird sounds to fill the air. I don’t read this time of year as I usually am outside until well after dark and then it is off to bed. My wife and I enjoy a couple of television shows that will wrap up their seasons this week so I imagine we will try to carve out the time to see those.
What was the last photo you took with your phone?
We put out our window boxes with geraniums and wave petunias about a week ago. The “blue” waves as they are called in the business are blooming and have such a deep rich color right now.
What is your favorite time of day?
During this time of year it is when my work shift is complete and I can break outside. The warm weather and sunshine draw me out for short walks with the dog during the day, but being able to be outside and enjoy our warm seasons is my favorite past time.
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
On Sunday we had a lunch with our son and daughter on our newly finished deck where we enjoyed a Mother’s Day lunch. Since our son has just completed his degree and is looking to start a new job we don’t know if this will be something we will get to depend on going forward. Later in the day we visited my wife’s mother for a short period.
This week I am already enjoying the great weather and temperatures in the mid-80s. Toward the end of the week I am looking forward to a mission opportunity with our church at something called Trail Days in Damascus, Virginia, where the Appalachian Trail intersects with a local trail called the Virginia Creeper Trail. 8-10,000 hikers and associated folks will converge on the small town to celebrate a week long hiking culture.

That blue!!!! I hope to get some petunias planted this weekend. It’s been chilly in New England, but I think we’re finally past it. I will look for wave petunias!
It is such a deep blue and one of my favorites!
Sounds like a good week and day, Joe. Will be you be watching “NCIS” tonight? We’ll be watching both, with a period of the hockey game sandwiched between. 🙂
I like NCIS and NCIS:New Orleans. But the ones my wife enjoys are on ABC, Designated Survivor and Grey’s Anatomy.
