Share Your World: Week 40

Well…I’m late getting to this, but it is not for lack of trying. I have been trying to post this blog since TUESDAY. It’s been a work in progress, no more than ten minutes at a time snatched here and there. Because of work, work dinners, work, and MORE work. This is corporate travels busiest time of year. I think it always takes us by surprise. The AA pilots (I’m talking to you!! Yes YOU pilots!) are NOT helping. In fact, it is adding extra people (like me) to work in Emergency services and LOTS of unhappy people trying to get somewhere on AA. Not to mention the rest of the peoples bailing off AA to actually get somewhere. Which makes me wonder how smart these pilots think they are? If no one flies AA, won’t they be out of a J-O-B? But, I digress….

Cee’s Life Photography Blog is kind enough to share her world, and she asks that other share theirs. I don’t know about you. But I think that is a marvelous way to connect with each other.

Here are the four questions and answers for the week (finally!).

    1. Where did you live at age five?

At age five (pic below), I lived in Ada, Oklahoma off Howard Street. And apparently, for my birthday, I got a big wheel.

How awesome is that?

A few facts about Ada.

    Hometown of Blake Shelton.
    Headquarters for Prepaid Legal.
    Home to about 20,000 (and growing).
    Infamous for the true story of The Innocent Man – written by John Grisham.
    Home to the largest medical facility of the Chickasaw Nation.

    2. What five things in life would you like to get paid for but would choose to do even if you have to pay to do them? (submitted by Reinventing the We’ll)

Take photos….

Preferably nature Photography and landscapes.

Visit the beach as much as I can possibly afford to. Oh yes….yes, yes, yes.

Laundry. Someone had to say it. What is the good life without clean undies? If I got PAID to do laundry, can you imagine how rich I’d be? Of course, paying for laundry is a must whether it’s buying a washer and dryer, or visiting the laundromat. Just being reals……

Coffee. I could get paid to have coffee. I could sit in Starbucks all day, or at home, or on the beach.

I can drink coffee here or there.
I can drink coffee anywhere.
But I have to have milk to put in it.

So I guess I’d need a fridge, or a cooler. And of course….I BUY coffee now. I afford this luxury necessity so I don’t kill anyone.

Travel. Plane, train, or boat. I don’t care. I just like to go. And do. And be somewhere. Free travel would be great (and sometimes I get that), but I would pay. No doubt about it.

Watch sunsets. That would be a steady income I could enjoy. But I would pay for it, if I had to….Thankfully the most beautiful things in life are free.

    3. Describe yourself in a word that starts with the first letter of your name. (submitted by teedeevee)


    4. “What do you have to be so happy about?” (submitted by Caddo Veil)

My Family.

My Faith.

My Heart. My strength. My will.

That my journey is just beginning…

Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.

– Sir Winston Churchill

  1. Angelia, as I shared in one of my previous comments, your photography is absolutely stunning! You truly have such an amazing gift with the camera. What an inspiration you are!

    Two things:

    “Coffee. I could get paid to have coffee.”

    Amen! Me too! In fact, I’m sitting here drinking it right now.

    “Watch sunsets.”

    I’m the same. That’s my favorite time of the day. I love dusk. That time between light and dark. Amazing!

    Beautiful photo of the stairs!

    Have a super weekend!


  2. I so enjoy learning more about my bloggy friends, and getting to see one of them at the age of 5 (such a cutie!) is extra special. Your photos are always special and I always enjoy seeing them.


  3. Pictures are oh so clear. No question why you succeed in photography.
    You have a very good smile, Angelia. Hehe 😀
    How I wish local cafes have Wifi as well, so I don’t have to go to Starbucks every time.


  4. Todd Crabtree

    WOW! Your heart makes me smile! Your insight, your focus, your shining love of life is so evident in your photos and your words. I continue to be impressed with your talents! Thanks for sharing-

    This was great. ‘Share your world’ – what a wonderful idea! I loved the pictures too though, placed well amongst the words – not too much of either, or too little. A really great post. I really like Chinese writing (more than Japanese, actually). Love the form of it – I mean, I loved your cup 🙂


  6. We are lucky to share you beautiful and inspiring world. Every image brings about joy and sunshine. My favorite is the one that shows your wonderful family with warm, happy generous smiles and of your faith which you spoke with passion. Have a blessed day.
