Another Monday, and another exciting Share Your World!  Candles, money, memories and sleep. Just a few questions to get the week started.

When you lose electricity in a storm, do you light the candles or turn on the flashlight? How many of each do you own? I have both. Just don’t ask me how many of each and I am sure the flashlights need new batteries now that I think about it. We also have a little faux fireplace that you can light a little can in. It gives off a little light.

You are given $5,000 and the chance to exchange it for one of two envelopes. One envelope contains $50,000 and one contains $500. Do you make the trade? Why or why not? I wouldn’t make the trade. For the simple fact that the $5,000 could help me so much more than the $500. Now if I didn’t need the money, I would trade it in. It’s free money.

What’s your first memory? I don’t know. Much of when I was younger is a complete kaleidoscope and while they are not all bad, sadly it seems the bad ones hold the greatest impact, or they tinge the good ones with grey making them not so happy. The first one’s all swirl around kindergarten, my grandparents farm, my aunt and uncle’s farm and horses and sheep.

What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep, toss and turn, or get up and try to do something? Toss and turn? No, if I truly cannot sleep I will try reading, sometimes I fall back asleep sometimes the alarm goes off and I suffer from needing to finish the book.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? My post for Absolute Write is up. It’s on Ireland, while I am not totally pleased with it I am happy that it is done. As for looking forward to things this week? My son’s band concert is tomorrow and it will be fun to go listen and see how they have improved. 😀
