Share Your World – 29

25 06 2012

I’ve missed a few weeks of Cee’s Challenge to “Share your world“.  Follow the link to join in.  Here are my answers for this week:

1. What sound or sounds do you love?

I love the sounds of nature.  I really enjoy birdsong and like to hear them call and respond or mimic sounds they hear.   The magpie call is a glorious warble and the Kookaburra’s laugh is raucous.

2. If you could be a tree or a plant, what would you be?

Hmmm.  I would like to be a large tree on the edge of a sports playing field, providing shade and a spot to sit and watch the game.   A ‘picnic tree’ would be ideal!!

3.  What is your favourite recipe that was passed down from your mother or grandmother?  Have you mastered it as well as the original?

I have collected quite a few personal recipes and prefer to have them hand written from the person.  I put them in a booklet and when I make something the recipe is then forever known as “Margaret’s Tea Cake” or “Merveen’s Banana Cake” or “Janine’s Peach Slice”.  I am yet to tackle Bethie’s Moccasin (now there’s a story) or her “Green Dip”  but I will get to that one day.

4.  What is your favourite genre for novels and why?

I rarely read fiction because I struggle with reading so it is not very enjoyable.  I do listen to a lot of ‘talking’ books though and find them great for trips in the car.  I prefer biographies and accounts of people’s lives – they’re just so interesting and inspiring!!  I also like a good mystery with suspense but without the graphic details.  I find the level of detail in crime and violence (on TV or in novels) unnecessary and disturbing and I don’t find it ‘entertaining’.  I prefer a novel that features the intrigue of various characters and the mystery of a good ‘whodunnit’ without all the forensic maggot counting.  My favourite is Harry Kemelman’s  “Rabbi Small” series or a good PD James.
