topical tropical trinity questions

Topical Tropical Trinity questions are about your interests, your passions, your hobbies and activities and about living your life in general. https://aguycalledbloke.blog/2020/04/25/topical-tropical-trinity-5/

Each weekly game will have a fixed ‘subject’ and ask you two basic questions – and one three fold question.

Today’s Questions for Topical Tropical Trinity are based on ..

“Lockdown Limbo”

Q.1How long have you personally been in lockdown – when was the last times you were out and about and will you automatically return to your life post-lockdown?I was driving home from Florida, and got home on March 18th, which is officially the last day I was out and about freely. Things were already locked down, but not completely. I was still considered by others as over-reacting. I think now, this is my life. I don’t mind not running around all the time and I really don’t mind less obligations.
Q.2Are you happy with your progress so far and your ability to stay sane? [Alternative question – When did you pass Go on the Insane journey – how is that going for you?]I feel pretty good. Considering the trauma I have endured the last two years, I am surprised I am holding up so well. I thought it would be worse. I do get emotional when hearing about the people who have died, as it brings my grieving back to the forefront.
Q.3Have you started a new hobby?
When was the last time you talked to the toilet? [No to the toilet not in the toilet]
If you share the house with others – either animal or human – how is the extended home time coming along with loved ones?
I wouldn’t call it a new hobby, but I am definitely making my miniature kits faster than ever, and I started drawing. I picked up cross-stitching again, which I suppose is new, but I used to do it alot when I was younger.
I don’t talk to my toilet but I did tell myself that my toilet needed some attention.
Extended home time is great. I actually bought a new guinea pig on Thursday so that Beary would have a brother. So far, so good!

Thank you Rory, for the fun!

Here are my answers:

Do you think more marriages means more happiness?[Interpret as you wish]I mean they don’t have to be your marriages, maybe there is more happiness to be had in someone else’s right? Once was enough for me but you know that’s just me….
My husband of 21 years passed away in June 2018. I planned on staying married to him until the end. After he passed I said I would never marry again. I don’t know if I would or not. I have David now and things are wonderful.

In the current climate are you talking to yourself more or less … interpret as you wish, but are you talking to yourself more or less when it’s warmer or colder??Yeah, yeah that climate not the other climate unless you do want to answer the question under that climate.
I think I talk to myself more when it is warmer out. The cold just makes me miserable and all I can think about is how cold I am. When it is warm out, I can sit and relax, thus, talking more to myself.

Do you prefer to buy your own flowers for the house/home, have someone buy them for you, steal them from the neighbours garden or sneak into the local undertakers and help yourself to the pretty bunches?[Asking for a friend]
Ironic that this is your question. This year will be the first in almost 10 or 11 years that I have to buy my own flowers. My husband, who passed in 2018, used to get me all of my vegetable and flower plants for Mother’s Day. Last year, since he was gone, my son did all of the shopping and surprised me with tons of plants. My son passed away in July 2019. I am dreading Mother’s Day not only because I lost my son, but because there was so much more behind it. I still have my daughter which I am so thankful for. I don’t know if she will buy any plants, she isn’t really into gardening and all that.

Have you found yourself to be more or less reflective recently?As in when you look into a mirror ….
I have found that I sometimes go days without really looking in the mirror. I mean there is one in the bathroom so when I was my hands I see my reflection, but I don’t really acknowledge it.

What’s your special weird habit?I don’t mean Monks either unless you are a Monk, then l do mean what is your weird habit … erm like?
I think one of my weird habits is to use my electric toothbrush in the morning and my manual (regular) toothbrush in the evening. I rarely ever use the electric in the evening.

When was the last time you literally woke up and smelled the coffee??I know like what ever next ?The last time you smelled a ?Exactly!!
Actually, a few weeks ago I slept in and David came up with breakfast in bed and a cup of coffee. It smelled so good! It is a very warm, welcoming smell!

Thanks for hosting this Q & A!

The Really You! Season 1 – Game 16

Everyone says they don’t have enough time every day, each day everyway – so what is enough time per day – how much time would you need in your day to get everything done?

I would like to have some days where I just keep going, the day keeps going with me, until I get everything done. No room to procrastinate or make excuses, just be busy until everything is done. I don’t even know what that everything is, but there are days that I wish I could just finish. Funny, not sure what I need to finish….

What’s your Story: Tangled

All you need to do is write a piece of flash fiction of no more than 300 words on the topic of “The Sprawling Legend’, using the words you find in the word ‘Tangled’.

The Sprawling Legend of Mr. Perfect

Back in the day there were many ladies but only one fine gent in a land full of problems. This gent would spend his day on the lane looking for buggies that had a dent. He lent his profession to his passion for perfection. It is the deal he made with a man one day that made him glad, hence this tale.  

One day, that was a tad bit chilly, this gent took his teal toolbox and set out to find some work. The wind started to nag him, with its blustery chill, but he kept going. “There is no dang way this cold is stopping me now!” he said to himself.   

The streets he navigated lead him to stand in front of an angel. He looked up at the angel, which was at an angle that hurt his neck, to see if this was a living thing or just a spirit. Along came another man, known for being a Dane, and asked the gent for help fixing the dent in his tan carriage. The two worked hard to get the dent out and they were eventually successful. The Dane decided to stay in town with the gent as they became friends.
