Here is Melanie’s Share Your World for this week.
Okay we’re flipping things over this week with three rather silly questions and one philosophical one.
What would be much better if you could just change the color of it?
Half of the clothes in my closet – I like some of the things I rarely wear, because I don’t have a matching blouse or pants. Then I forget about that particular item until I get totally bored with what I have to wear and find it again. If it’s really a weird color I can’t do anything with, I will regretfully give it to Goodwill.
Do You Think Cats Have Any Regrets?
No, I don’t think they can think on that high a level. This is a serious answer for a somewhat silly question! My cat, for sure, is content with her life right now.
Do you ever count your steps when you walk?
No, I have a Fitbit that can do that for me. I used to really keep track of that, but not anymore. I always, however, count stairs whether up or down. That makes me focus on the stairs so that I don’t get distracted and trip or fall. It can also be really useful, for example, in our old house, if we were carrying something that blocks our view and so not able to see the stairs. I knew there were 15 stairs from the first floor to the second, and 12 steps from the kitchen down to the basement.
Is there a supreme power? (you choose over what, and please be respectful)
That is a tough one. I believe in God but not as a “supreme power” per se. I don’t think God exists as a human-like being somewhere, controlling everything we do. Humans invented God. I believe that God’s presence lies within ourselves – we are our own supreme power, whether or not we recognize it. It’s complicated and I’m on a “faith journey.” Without getting into a long theological treatise, I will leave it at that.
Please feel free to share some gratitude with everyone!
I’ve just been “in love” with our cat, Hazel, lately. She is such a well-behaved kitty and follows us around a lot, just to be near us. She’s not a lap sitter – she prefers what she is doing in the above photo – getting comfortable between someone’s legs, preferably on the recliner. Hazel was a godsend for us during the pandemic. She is 10 years old and life is good!

Thank you Katy for Sharing Your World! Hazel is beautiful! Obviously she’s comfortable with her surroundings. Thanks for those lovely photos of Ms. Hazel too! You have great will power to actually give away ‘old’ or odd clothing. I have a closet half stuffed full of things that haven’t seen the light of day in ten years (nearly) and I don’t find the motivation to give any of them away. At least I’ve stopped buying MORE. Well, unless it is super cute, and then that’s just sensible, right? 😉 All your answers were very thoughtful (even to the silly ones) and your thoughts on supreme power were awesome! I love that explanation! Have a great week and enjoy Hazel!
Thanks, Melanie! A great week to you as well!
