How observant are you and do you think Ernest was right about living life before you can write about it?
Let me know your answers in the comment section below to the questions.

Positive energy is contagious.

Who would have thunk it?
Useless facts until you need useless facts.

Humans discard over 100 pounds of their skin up to the age of seventy. Just over 600,000 skin cells are shed every day! Our body feeds many bacteria, worms, parasites and other microbial lifeforms.

If a starfish loses one of its arms, it can regrow another. Truth be known that one new arm can regenerate an entire starfish body!

Working the allotment, we discover many nests of ants red and black. It made me wonder how many ants there might be in the world. The answer isn’t blowing in the wind, but a staggering 20 quadrillion! The following fact pondered was what does that figure look like? It looks like this …. 20,000,000,000,000,000! That is 2.5 million ants per person in the world. How much do 20 quadrillion ants weigh? Well, l can tell you – sort of, anyway—a lot. The total weight of all the ants is not just a lot, but greater than all the humans on the earth!

Facebook initially wanted to label the Like button – Awesome.

An estimated five and a half trillion pieces of plastic waste are in our oceans. It is believed that in 2050 if nothing is done to reduce waste, there will be more plastic waste than fish.

I know, right!
Who would have thunk it?

Wishing all you great folks a fabulous day!

  1. What bad habits do you have?
    Right now my bad habits aren’t that many. One thing I’d like to change is to do yoga, the app that I’ve downloaded and paid for, and read all the books I’ve started on Kindle.

    Who are the most important people in your life?
    My organic family; Husband, kids, grandchildren and my brothers.

    What makes you tired the most every day?
    My daily walk. I do around 9k steps on average. Sometimes it’s more but minimum is 8k.

    How observant are you and do you think Ernest was right about living life before you can write about it?
    When I was younger I was very observant and had a very good memory. Now I’m losing both. I think that we absorb much from the experiences of others around us as well as our own. But human imagination is boundless and we can and do write about things we haven’t experienced personally too.

  2. What bad habits do you have?

    I don’t have many bad habits, per se. I am impatient and everything has to be done now. Also, I don’t like to be interrupted. I still like to vape every now and then.

    Who are the most important people in your life?

    My hubby and my cat. My cat sometimes thinks she is a person. lol

    What makes you tired the most every day?

    Sitting too long.

    How observant are you and do you think Ernest was right about living life before you can write about it?

    I consider myself very observant. I agree with Ernest to an extent, however, one’s imagination can be better than the experience.

  3. Bad habits………. probably impatience!
    The most important people in my life are Hubby and Maya, they are my world.
    What makes me tired? The heat and back ache.
    I am pretty observant, and I have written about things that have happened in my life………. and also how I wish things had happened! I suppose it depends if you are wanting to write your autobiography or fiction.


  4. Bad habits? Hmm, chocolate 🍫… I crave it hard once a month and if I know day gonna be bad – chocolate helps. Just makes me feel calmer or better to face whatever comes

    Also being workaholic too… so workaholic and chocoholic – those 2 things

    Most important people? Sorry I can not pick just 2 … my greatest influences to who I am – would be my mother and my dads father (my grandfather) they would be my biggest influences

    But as far as important goes – if someone close in my life and I let them stay there – then they are important ❤️

    There are more than 2 who are important to me.

    Important to my life – I would say my earth angels but there is also more than 2 of them too

    Hahaha – what makes tired the most every day??
    Ahhh well this answer would be more like a novel lol
    I pour myself into my job, am single mom running everywhere doing everything, am fur mom to extremely energetic dog, have friends and people I check on… doing yard work which I have to do this weekend, there is many answers on this question lol – not to mention, I also sometimes feel the age

    How observant am I? It depends with what you are referring to… I am observant with some things

    It also depends on how much work or life craziness fried my brain 🧠

    I am observant person in general

    Is Hemingway correct with living life before writing about it…

    Well half and half – because a memoir at 20 will be different at 50… but depends on the life or what someone has gone through and/or what someone’s definition of living life is to them

    People all have something to say and technically we all live and write the experiences sometimes

    Sometimes writing life is imagination and creativity too – some writers imagine what a life would be

    So I would say half and half

    I love starfish ❤️★❤️ every year we used to go to Sanibel island in Florida ❤️ – My mom LOVED the starfish – I learned all about them when I was little ❤️👏

    1. Hey Trisha, great answers and l agree with the 50/50 on life , imagination and experience living it. How l viewed my life at forty was different to fifty and will be different again to sixty.

      The tired question l knew might produce an answer like this from you, yeah you’re a busy momma in all ways 🙂 Perhaps the next question would be what doesn’t make you tired.

      I think my ethics for working hard is both an asset and a bad habit combined, but my credo is if it works don’t fix or break it 🙂

      In the last twenty years alone l have changed considerably as a person.

      1. Hmm … well excitement makes me not tired lol

        I love what I do so I’m ok being workaholic and is helping others how I would want to be helped & cared for – I also love my community so is worth it … but death takes your life in many ways even sometimes when you are alive lol ✌️

        Yes me too… in past 4 years I am very different

        I was not sure I be good with death because I am a very alive happy bubbly person – I do have to tone that down at work

        I used to be a cart girl so I have a very flirty personality with everyone.

        I tone that down at work and hide that on my own time lol ✌️

        Even still I have issues – I am a type to take your pain away and enjoy life … feel good… but then everyone wants that so then I get overwhelmed lol ✌️

        But yes …my my how we have changed 😮 even since 2020 😮

        No more 1985 that’s for sure lol 😘✌️

        Have a wonderful day – hope you have sun I sent lol ☀️ ✌️

      2. I’m not really sure what carty means ?? 🤷‍♀️

        When I google I find this: 😄😄😄

        What Does CARTY Mean?
        CARTY means “Party in a Car.”

        😄 I don’t think that is what you mean

        It did make me laugh though ❤️👏

        Also… how do they get “party in a car” from “carty”?

        Anyway was funny 😄👏
