These are my answers to Cee’s “Share Your World” Challenge. (2015 Week 40)
If you have been to a foreign country name those you have been to?
Here’s a list of all the countries I’ve been to. The countries with an * next to them I have been to more than once. They are listed in roughly the order in which I visited them. I do not count countries in which I was only in the airport, seaport, or bus/train terminal.
First, my home country: U.S.A.
Puerto Rico (USA)
This is a total of 23 countries (since I am considering Puerto Rico, England and Scotland to be separate countries)! I have made 5 separate trips to Brazil and lived there for a total of about 2 ½ years. I have made 4 separate trips to Mexico. I’ve been to England 3 times, and all the other * countries, I have been to twice.
By the way, 23 countries is very few, in my opinion! I need to do some more traveling soon!
Is the glass half empty or half full? What type of glass is it and what is in the glass?
The glass is half full – there’s still a lot I want to do, but I am so far satisfied with my life.
The glass is my bucket list. In the glass are all the things I have accomplished and the people in my life. Still “to do” on my bucket list is travel (because I can never get enough travel) and publish my writing, including the book I am working on about my family history and genealogy.
If you could have an endless supply of any food, what would you get?
I would not only have one food on the list – that would be boring! The foods I would want would be an endless supply of Honey Crisp apples, fresh peaches, strawberries and raspberries, mangoes, guavas, ice cream, chocolate (in any form), cheese, potatoes (any kind in any form), lima beans, fresh tomatoes, black beans, chicken, pizza (no olives, please!)
List: List at least five places worth shopping.
Costco (food, clothes, household goods, electronics)
Kohl’s (department store – reasonable prices, good choices. I always buy my purses there, and most of my clothes too!)
Trader Joe’s (specialty food)
Mariano’s (specialty food)
Aldi (cheap food, good produce)
Shop and Save (foreign food, especially Eastern European)
amazon.com (books & CDs, Kindle downloads, other stuff)
Barnes and Noble (books)
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 beautiful, sunny days during the end of September. I am looking forward to autumn colors and taking many pictures!
