Share Your World Week 23

I enjoy Cee Neuner’s photo challenges. Today I clicked on her Share Your World Challenge – an interview. So here goes. 🙂

What was one of your first money-making jobs (other than babysitting or newspaper delivery)?

I started working at Portland Adventist Hospital in the kitchen right after I graduated from high school. The head dietitian was a roller skating friend of mine. Roller skating knows no age limits. Her husband, Dave Plant, at age 60, taught my brother and me along with many of our friends how to water ski on the weekends when we weren’t skating. Lou Plant offered me a job and I took it. It was a good incentive to go to college and not to major in medicine – long hours, low pay, on my feet for hours.

What is your favorite month of the year?

Fall in Elderwood
Fall in Elderwood

November, of course, my birth month, full of holidays, voting, and beautiful weather no matter where you live.

What three things in nature do you find most beautiful?

Hawaii Maui

I love crape myrtle trees, maple trees, and water.

List at least five of your favorite spices? (excluding salt and pepper)

Basil is green.

lemon, orange, basil, cilantro, mint

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I am grateful for friends and family, health, and a comfortable life in a beautiful location. I am looking forward to the primary election being over.

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.

        1. Roller skating was a big deal when I was a teen. We took lessons. I never competed, but loved to earn dancing medals. Our rink had a huge pipe organ in it, and people (mostly parents) came just to hear the music and watch the kids skate. I wrote a post about one of my MOST embarrassing moments. 🙂

  1. Since I know about where you live, you are so right about November being an amazing month! It is one of my favorites, too, you got the Fall leaves, a few sunny days, crisp cool night, and holidays! Nice getting to know you better, Marsha!

    1. Hmmm, it involved a lot of standing. I learned to eat vegetarian substitutes for meat, I met some of my best friends there, but standing for hours cleaning food off of trays, ummm, can’t say that I loved it. 🙂 I did earn $1.25 an hour, though. That was cool! 🙂
