(Two ‘seasonal’ and two plain today)
What is the scariest game (board or on-line) you ever may have played?
When I was a pre-teen or maybe a young teen we bought a Ouija board. Mum talked about how she and her sisters used to use a makeshift one with home made numbers and letters and a glass and it sounded interesting. At first it did seem like a game but as Naomi and I got older we didn’t like it any more. It seemed a bit creepy. Why was that glass moving if none of us were pushing it. One of mum’s sisters still liked mum to get it out from time to time so she would but we didn’t participate.
My feeling is that this is not the sort of thing that should be used frivolously. It’s not a game. I wouldn’t say I was ever really scared but I didn’t like it.
What’s just ‘over the rainbow” for you?
Where I lived in South Australia I rarely saw a whole rainbow. Usually it was a half but here in Tasmania I’ve seen many beautiful complete rainbows. I’d often see one over the Huon River was we drove home from Hobart and as I could see both ends I felt that I had found the end of my personal rainbow.I still like to think that the elusive pot of gold is out there somewhere though.
Do you have to watch something upbeat after watching a suspense or horror movie so you can go to sleep?
I don’t really watch horror movies at all because I don’t like gore and death. I may watch a suspense movie from time to time. I’d probably do something else before going to bed if I felt disturbed by it. Not necessarily watching something else although I might. I might read or just make a cup of tea or most likely go online and check blog posts.
Is there intent behind every action?
I think there is intent behind my actions. I can’t speak for other people.
GRATITUDE SECTION (as always, optional)
As you know from my last two posts we visited the tulip farm over the weekend. I love going there and look forward to it all year. Today we did a long drive to Naomi’s house in Oatlands. The mundane reason for the visit was to get another car load of stuff and do some cleaning but it was a beautiful day and I enjoyed seeing the scenery as we travelled along the coast and then inland where we saw green fields, dairy cows, sheep and lambs and bright yellow fields of canola growing. I didn’t have my camera today, nor did we have time to stop. It is a three and a half hour drive each way. However, I have some lovely images in my head.
Thanks, Vanda, for Sharing Your World! I was never allowed to ‘mess around’ with an Ouija board as a kid (religious as well as my mother had a bad experience with one) and as an adult I found I was far too superstitious to touch one. There is a definite ‘evil’ vibe that comes to me from that thing. You’re right, it’s not a game and people ought not fool with it. The trip to the tulip farm sounds amazing and that photo you did share is beautiful! How wonderful to have such a gorgeous place within driving distance! 🙂 I never knew Canola grew as a plant…I didn’t really think about it, but it makes sense! Is that what the yellow plants are in that field? I don’t ‘do’ horror (film or books) either, but sometimes the more suspenseful TV show or movie will leave me highly disconcerted and I have to watch something ‘mindless’ to get my mind off the first show. I hope you have a great week! 🙂

Canola oil is also known as rapeseed oil and the plant grows quite widely in Australia. The other night I was watching train videos on YouTube (train nerd that I am) and the train was passing through fields of canola in Western Australia so when I saw it yesterday I knew right away what it was. I didn’t realise it grew in so much of Tasmania until now.
Garry and I both dislike horror movies — except for the really old ones, like the original ones made in the 1930s and 40s which aren’t scary, but can be interesting and occasional, pretty funny.
My son is very suspicious of Canola oil because it is also used to lubricate cars.

This morning I heard on the radio that Prince Charles uses white wine to run his cars. Should we be suspicious of that too? I didn’t know you could use wine that way but he must have plenty.
