Doing a Little Sharing

I’m taking a little break from the 66 Days of Summer with this post. It has been a long time since I’ve done a Cee’s Share Your World post, so I thought I’d give it a try on this rainy morning.

Have you ever been a participant in a parade? What did you do?
Nope, never have. I think Meghan was fond of playing “parade” when she was little, however. I’m pretty sure that’s what’s going on in this photo of her with my best friend Renae.

According to my archives, this photo is from 1998 – Meghan would be 3 years old.

If you were handed free opera tickets, would you go or sell them? Why?
I’m with Cee on this one – I’d sell them. I know very little about opera and it isn’t something I’m interested in experiencing. Also, like Cee, the ballet would be a different story. Readers of this blog know the love of ballet I have. The girls and I got to see the Moscow Ballet perform “Sleeping Beauty” this past April and it was beautiful. My apologies, I only have lousy shots from the finale – as you can imagine, real photography wasn’t allowed.

Why did you start your blog?
I started it as way to share my love of photography. I’m only a hobbyist, but I enjoy it very much. Before I started the blog, I found myself participating in photo challenges from other blogs I was reading. I used Flickr to participate, but Flickr doesn’t allow the kind of interaction that a blog does, in my opinion, so I jumped in and gave blogging a shot. I’ve been at it over 4 years and I’m still having fun with it. The first photo assignment I participated in once I started the blog was Scott Thomas’s assignment on Creative Exposure. This was my entry. And here is my favorite photo from that assignment:

What is your favorite tradition? (family tradition, church tradition, whatever)
This is an easy one for me – Pig Out! I’ve mentioned this tradition on the blog before, but rather than make you follow a link to another post, I’ll quickly summarize. Pig Out is a tradition that has been happening with me, my sister, Renae, my mother, Renae’s mother, and Renae’s aunt for 20+ years now. It started as a way for us to find time to see Renae and her mom and aunt at Christmas time. The first one was haphazard – it took place at Renae’s aunt’s house and she just kept pulling different snack foods out of her fridge and pantry. Now we plan it well in advance and take turns hosting the event and all bring food, potluck style. This is an example of one of our Pig Outs:

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Some of my gratefulness that I would like to answer about is a little more than a week old, but I think it’s okay to bend this answer just a wee bit, right Cee? I’m grateful for the time I got to spend individually with each of my daughters. As I told you in this post I had the unusual circumstance of just Meghan and me being home for dinner. Then I had the chance to enjoy some shopping time with Sarah (shopping is NOT one of Sarah’s favorite activities) last Thursday.

I’m looking forward to taking Sarah to have her senior portraits done this Friday. Hard to believe all the events of senior year of high school are beginning with my baby!

  1. Love that you’re playing! I’ve fallen behind – seems to be a way of life lately.

  2. So fun to learn more about you through this post and the answering of questions. Made me think of what my own (answers) would be. I will mention that I was in a parade once, as a “Miss something-or-other” when I was 17. HUMILIATING!! And I love your pig-out idea. I might need to start that tradition at my own home! Nice to visit you here – it makes me feel as if I have really just visited you ‘over at your place.’

    • Thank you Pamela. Cee’s questions are fun to play with from time to time. Great spot for a blog jump-start if you feel like blogging and don’t know what to say.

  3. Wonderful post, Karma. Cee’s questions are so much fun, and now I know a little bit more about you. I remember your Pig Out tradition and always thought it sounded like great fun. 🙂
