Share Your World – January 8, 2018

Here is Cee’s Share Your World questions and my responses:

Do you prefer a bath or shower?

What do I prefer? I prefer taking a bath, but for practical reason, I take shower 99% of the time because It takes less time. There are days when I’m physically exhausted or mentally stressful, I like to take a hot bath with Epsom salt, Concentrated mineral bath soak with Eucalypti and Chamomile, and lavender bubble bath. I soak in the bath with headphone on, listening to my favorite Romantic Adagio CD. It helps to relax my muscles.

What do you do to make a living or during the day? If you are retired what mostly occupies your day? Or if you are a student what are you studying?

I’m retired but I am working and have a busy schedule.

I own an after-school care business. Even though I have several people help me doing the tutoring, teaching Chinese and providing childcare, I do all the things that an employer does.

Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays are gym days when I work out with my husband.

Thursdays and Fridays, I take poetry, watercolor, and chorale classes for the retirees at Cal State University in Fullerton.

Not to mention that gardening is my regular routine of the day. I also have church activities several times a week.

Is there a stuffed animal in your bedroom?

No, I don’t, and I have never had a stuffed animal for myself.

What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

The rain finally came last night. It rained all night and it has been raining lightly but steadily all day. I  worried about my garden. Usually, this time of the year provides rain to soak the soil and prepare the soil for spring. This is our first rain of the winter. I hope it will rain a few more time before spring.

  2. I love your gardening flower pictures! I had no idea you worked out and took classes and owned a business oh my you are just about as cool as anyone can be!!!!
    I haven’t soaked in a bath in forever. When my daughter was born with a kidney defect we were told she could never take a bath due to infection possibilities and so I just never did again either!
    I loved reading your answers. Thank you for sharing!
    My only stuffed animal is my daughter’s favorite one as a child that is still on my dresser.

    • Yes, Beth, I’m busier retired than I was working. Sorry about your daughter’s health problem. Yes, you just have to do your best to prevent the infection. I don’t think my husband takes bath. I only do it a few times a year. Yes, my daughter has stuffed animals also but I don’t count them as mine. Thank you for reading and comment. I usually just make short posts as time allows.
      Take care yourself!!

  4. Miriam is that also you on the cover of the coursebook? Your watercolor is pretty and reminds me of a batik painting I got to make in college. Retirement sounds like the fun kind of busy!

    • I know what it means by not being able to get up and down in a tub. So a year ago, I wanted to install a grab bar by the tub. One thing led to another, we remodeled the bathroom with two grab bars – one on the side and one at the end of the tub on the wall to let me grab on it when getting out of the tub. I love hot shower also, I let the hot water run on my back to help me relax! 🙂
