QUESTIONS

Do you enjoy skiing or ice skating or if it’s warm where you are, hiking or enjoying outdoor sports? I used to ski. I don’t know if I ever loved it. I loved it once I was there doing it but the thought of going and skiing is just not… I ice skated as a kid. I don’t think I ever really liked it either. I did when I had skates with double blades so I didn’t fall down. I used to love roller-blading. I guess I like the warmer weather sports. Sometimes I think I am sort of boring like that because I can live without a lot of activities…

Do you give to charities or homeless that you might encounter, during this time of year, more than you do otherwise? The only charity I give to more this time of year is Salvation Army because they have their bell ringers out. Growing up my dad used to say to always give a little to Salvation Army when you see them because Salvation Army sent him to summer camp when he was a kid. He said his family was too poor to afford something like summer camp. On a regular basis I give to Disabled American Vets. I also give to St. Jude Shrine and St. Judes Children Hospital. My stepmom gives to Shriners. My dad to St. Judes. I always think if everyone just grabbed a few coins out of the bottom of their purse that would add up.

What is the most enjoyable activity you engage in during December?  Is it a tradition for you and your family? The most enjoyable activity for December is cooking for my family. I love to cook and make cookies and good food. I used to host Christmas Eve and invited everyone who wanted to come. Since losing my husband and then my son, and now COVID, I’m really just cooking for myself, David and Lindsay.

What changes will C-19 bring to your festive celebrations this year?  Honestly, this year will probably be like last year. Quiet. This will be the first time I am not in Florida with my dad for Christmas but with the prices of travel at the holidays, it is just too expensive. On top of that I want to be around for Lindsay since it is just her and I now, well with David of course…

  1. Thanks Christine for Sharing Your World! I think winter sports are best suited to those who really enjoy brisk air and cold feet! I loved roller skating as a kid, but never tried those in-line things, I’d have fallen flat, and they came out after I was too old to safely use them in my opinion anyway. Dignity you know 😉 I did give to the Disabled Vets too, and think they are a fine organization. Sadly financial constraints prevent me now. If one loves cooking, I think the holidays are a great time of year to practice one’s skills, and if one can bake (cookies and other holiday treats), that’s an additional bonus! Have a wonderful week!

    1. Thanks Melanie! You know I used to rollerblade but as a kid I always roller skated. Once when the kids were younger we went roller skating…I fell so hard then wacked my head on the floor. That was the last time I tried any of my younger-day sports.
