Regarding your fridge, is it organized or a mess inside?
This photo is from 2014, but nothing very much has changed since.Perhaps there is now only one pack of milk in the fridge door as I now avoid milk where I can. I used to take cereal with milk in the morning for breakfast and drink coffee, but discovered that there is a lactose allergy hovering around and it is better for me to avoid it. Otherwise my fridge is usually quite tidy. Week-ends there is more, but no problem. I have a separate freezer, beneath my normal fridge and also a second fridge now in the cellar. A fridge is no longer such a luxury to have, and I need a place to keep my MS injection supplies as I have to order once a month. The second fridge is in my laundry room/wine cellar where I really have enough room to keep it. The tidy organisation of the fridge is thanks to Mr. Swiss. Now and again he has a few mad moments and cleans the fridge. I am glad.
Do you prefer your food separated or mixed together?
On the grounds of being sensible, does it really matter? I mean when we eat it, the food all arrives in the same place due to the digestive system of the body. On the other hand I suppose we also eat with the eye and having salad mixed up with boiled potatoes and fried fish would not be so appetising. I am responsible for serving the food, and I do tend to put the various items separately on the plate. What the others do with it when they are eating is no longer my problem. I am basically a separated eater, taking one thing at a time on the fork. However, if it is boiled ham with veg (like cabbage or beans) I tend to mix it on the fork. Sauce or gravy relies on being mixed, as far as I am concerned. The sauce hollandaise would be disappointed if it did not meet the asparagus on the plate.
Do you prefer reading coffee table books (picture), biographies, fiction, non-fiction, educational?
If you can upload it on a Kindle, read it. No coffee table books. I like to get into a fictional story, preferably with a touch of mystery, a little bit of ghost now and again, murders, and drama. I do not mind non fiction if the subject interests. Magazines are OK, but not just any magazine. Cooking magazines, photography, computer – although most of them I read online. If the person is intersting than a biography is OK. I read about 3 biographies about Giuseppe Garibaldi (an Italian freedom fighter), Fidel Castro (another rebel) and was General Patton killed or was it an accident? Anything like that can be fascinating. Oh, I read it all, I do not read, I devour books.
Close your eyes. Listen to your body. What part of your body is seeking attention? What is it telling you?
No thankyou, my body tells me things that I prefer not to know since I am a golden oldie.
“Hey, it’s your nervous system speaking, our top layer is disintegrating – do something about it” (an injection every second day for MS).
Your digestive system sending a message, “do not eat Sauerkraut”. I agreed and no longer eat sauerkraut. I quite like it but my digestive system does not.
“It’s your brain calling, time for a sleep.” “OK will do. Anyone else with a problem?”
“Nose here” – “oh shuttup, I had enough of your sneezy antics last week, let’s forget them for a while.”
Your see I have everything under control – or?
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I think I will have to pass. I did not win in the lottery last week, and this week I should get around to doing things that I should do for some time. There is a dentist appointment to make – nothing serious, just a tooth inspection to see that they are still doing what they should. My hair tells me to have a hair cut, and tomorrow I have a doc visit to make. Oh the life of a golden oldie is never boring.
