Pensitivity101 Rules:

Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
Below are three things that may, or may not, be related. Simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you.
You can use one, two or all three words in your post, there are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
You can use 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and my logo if you wish.
Invite us along by creating a pingback to this post, then leave your link in the comments so that other people can read your writings and I’ll see it to respond to you directly. You might like to check out some of the other contributions while you’re there.

I schedule the challenge to go out around 6.30 am UK time, but pingbacks have to be approved manually so might not show immediately. This could be because I’m late accessing my blog or due to time differences, but I will get there, I promise!
I look forward to reading your responses, and as always thank you all for your continued support.

Your three words are:

NIGHT
ROUGH
SHIMMER

The Shimmering Globe

Written by Tessa Dean August 2021

I walked across my parents front yard as the moon shimmered brightly on the globe that set atop a stand. The night was dark except for the glow of the moon directly on the globe. I put my hands out to rub it across the globe and the smoothness that was usually there was missing. I cut my hand on something sharp. The moonlight was too dim to see what happened, but I felt a sharp pain.

I hurried inside to check out my hand and was surprised to find a large cut across my palm that was bleeding profusely. I headed to the bathroom to clean the cut and bandage it before getting a flashlight and heading out to the globe to see what had cut my hand. I was astonished to find the globe was almost upside down and the base of it was shattered causing me to cut my hand. I took it into the house to examine it, but I couldn’t find a reason for the globe to still be intact when it had been partially shattered. Why didn’t the whole thing just disintegrate into hundreds of little pieces. And more to the point, what had caused it to shatter? I set it on the table to show my parents in the morning. I know my mom loved that globe and it would be hard to replace.

SHARE YOUR WORLD 8-23-2021

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is sywvaccine.jpg

Welcome to Share Your World! 

I will post four or five different questions each week for you to answer.  Additionally, I offer a ‘Gratitude’ Section for those who like a little affirmation with their questions!  It’s optional to participate in that of course. 

There are two ways in which you can participate:

  1. Create a Share Your World post. 
  2. Then post the link to that blog post.
  3. Alternatively, leave your answers in the comments box of this post.
  4. To make it easy for others to check out your post, title your blog post “Share Your World”  and link it to this post.
  5. Ping-backs are activated, but how efficiently varies.  I don’t manually approve them, but sometimes they don’t show up immediately.  Why that happens is an unsolved mystery.   For instructions on how ping-backs work, in case you weren’t certain, please click here.  You may wish to leave a link to your blog post in the comments just to be sure.  Thanks!
  6. Some questions might be recycled from time to time.  Sorry if they come too close together!  The number of interesting questions (to me) is finite.   I try to mix them up judiciously but bungle that sometimes.  Mea culpa!



QUESTIONS      (a random bag today)  

Can you parallel park (if you drive)? Yes occasionally. It really depends on the area and how much room is available. I hate to do it though.  If you don’t drive, can you still skip? Can’t skip and that is obvious since when I broke my foot I couldn’t do crutches and had to go to a rehab until I got a walking boot.

Do you prefer early morning or late evening?  Or something in between? I prefer the middle of the night. I am a night owl.

Do you like avocados? NOOOOOOOOO!

Is mind or matter more real? I guess it depends although I would say matter is more tangible than mind.

and a bonus ‘deep’ question just because

Are people in this current generation less or more sensitive than people from past generations? Less sensitive and more “me me me.”

The Weekly Smile for the 23rd of August, 2021 #weeklysmile

My smile:

Second week and I still have an aide and we are getting along great. She has to miss Wednesday’s because of the doctor’s appointments, but she is here 4 days a week which is 3 days more than I was getting from that agency. I think she will be disappointed when she finds out I am eventually moving to assisted living although she does work in some of them occasionally so I could run into her again.
