* Sharing my world, one sniff at a time

Thank you, Cee, for the weekly Share Your World challenge!  Here goes!

List of Favorite Smells: What smells do you love? Whether it’s vanilla scented candles or the smell of coffee in the morning or the smell of a fresh spring rain…make a list of all the things you love for a little aromatherapy.

  • My favorite smell is that of my dearest teaching widower.  His smell hasn’t changed a bit since we first met in 1968!  It’s the best smell on earth.
  • I also love the smell of coffee, although I can’t stand its taste.

Are you a hugger or a non-hugger?   My abusive background meant I grew up to be a non-hugger.  Occasionally (as a kid), I’d get a hug from an old aunt but I usually steered clear of striking distance.  I am still a bit stiff when hugging but I force myself to move closer when it’s a special person.  I typically never hug kids.  I remember the shock of BEING hugged by kids when I was confined to a wheelchair for over two years and somewhat horrified they could actually reach me!

What is your least favorite candy?  Any kind of hard candy.  I nearly died by choking on one when I was four.  A strong neighbor picked me up by the ankles and smacked my back as I dangled upside down, almost passed out.  That candy shot out of my mouth!  Whew!  I loved that lady, by the way.  I used to go upstairs and wash her dishes and talk and talk.  She was kind and safe.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “fun”?  FUN is one of my favorite words!  That’s one of my prime learning objectives in any lesson plan.  The kids and I MUST have fun along the way.  I love playing around and being silly.  I laugh a lot and that’s fun!
