Day 14 – N

Number of States Visited in the United States

Thanks to educational road trips as a child, I have been lucky enough to visit many of the states in the United States, I daresay more than half. This is the first time I’ve counted all 50. (So I am excluding the territories. Just like our constitution does during election time.)

Share Your World – Don’t Run Out Of Gas When You’re Exploring!

A weekly chance from Cee! Check out her page and see what other’s think.

Ever ran out of gas in your vehicle?

Oooh, yes. I was doing that door canvassing gig and was in a suburban part of St. Louis. It wasn’t my car, which is why I wasn’t thinking about how much gas it had: I probably assumed it was full. But it wasn’t. I was on a relatively busy street and I was able to pull over safely and walk to a gas station. It was more inconvenient than really traumatic.

Share My World – Tree Climbing And Rainy Days

I haven’t done this in awhile, but why don’t we “share our worlds?!” (I mean, outside of what we already do. Let me know how you would answer these questions, and then go back to the originally poster and let them know, too!!

Are you a traveler or a homebody? 

Ooh, I’m a traveler! I love to be on the road! Check out adventures I’ve had under the travel tag!

What kind of TV commercial would you like to make? Describe it.

I think my commercial would be the top 10 trees to climb in the world. So then I would get to travel. There would be location-establishing shots with little labels on the bottom of the screen, then close-up shots of the trees, then talking to arborists about the species of the trees and their virtues, and then a smattering of shots of me climbing the tree. And then the gag reel would be me getting down, as graceful as that is.

Describe yourself in a word that starts with the first letter of your name.

I love alliteration; I can do this all day. Sassy? Sarcastic? Smart? Spirited? Super? Snuggly? Savoring? Spiritual? Studious? Steadfast?

List some fun things for a rainy day.

Sans child: Reading, writing, snuggling, watching TV, drawing, crocheting.

Avec child: Reading (different books though), playing with blocks, coloring, bouncing balls in the basement, rocking and singing by the window, crawling around like bears.

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 for some talks Cohiba and I have had.

I’m looking forward to seeing friends in St. Louis next week.

Weekend Coffee Share #21


If we were having coffee, you would come in with a sunburn.  What were you doing?! I’m not sure if I’m jealous or piteous for you right now. You assured me you were having fun riding your bike, and I find I’m still feeling a bit of both. I don’t have a carriage for the Wee One while I’m biking yet, but we did get a Deuter hiking pack for her, which is more structured and puts the pressure more on my hips than the Ergo does. She also sits higher so she can see more and it’s more a kind of pack Cohiba would wear. I took her on a short walk in it while I was trying to adjust it, and I think it’ll be good once it’s set for her.
