As usual, I got this little meme from over at Karen’s. Won’t you play along too?
February 23rd Questions:
1. Does blogging make you fat? Do you find yourself sitting around and eating more since you started your blog? Or do you get so caught up in the whole blogging routine that you forget to eat?
Does blogging make me fat? No, but it has been a great excuse not to work out from time to time. Or maybe it enables me to be a bit lazy. I don’t eat while blogging, mainly because I don’t want crumbs or any other yuck to get on it.
I only forget to eat if I’m really, really busy doing something physically or mentally taxing. That’s definitely not this blog!
2. The one topic I will not touch on my blog is __________. Why? What sorts of topics do you receive the most comments on? What sorts of topics do you receive the least number of comments on?
The one topic I will not touch on my blog is actually two. I don’t want to discuss politics or religion. As my father would say, those subjects should never be discussed in a bar as they lead to arguments and upsets.
I’ve received the most comments on my wine rack picture and the least comments on many others. But, I have a rather low readership and I don’t expect a lot of comments.
3. Spring is coming. How is your wardrobe? What sorts of clothes do you usually wear in the spring? Where do you normally shop for your clothes? How successful are you in finding clothes for yourself?
Spring here isn’t much different than winter or summer. It’s just part of each, extending winter out and starting summer a bit earlier. So spring sees me starting out dressed for rain and down to a t-shirt at the end of the season.
Where do I normally shop for clothes? Target, Kohl’s, Mervyn’s if I’m in Boise, JC Penny’s or Walmart. Depends on what I’m looking for and where I’m at.
I don’t usually succeed at finding clothes for myself. However, CP actually has good fashion taste and will insist I try a bunch of clothes on from time to time, which then helps me find something. More often than not, I’m happy with jeans and t-shirts. I mean, you can’t wear nice clothes to the barn without ruining them!
4. We should treat every day as a special gift – we’re alive, right? What made this past week special for you? (And if you’ve already talked about that special something on your blog, then think of something else – something little perhaps, but had a big impact on you or your loved ones).
Something special this past week? I don’t think there was anything that stands out. We have a couple non-special, worrisome things on our minds. Copper’s ear infection has come back, meaning there’s something else systemically going on. We’ll be going back to the vet for more testing soon. We suspect that it’s something he came to us with that didn’t get caught before, esp since he came to us with a skin infection. Copper can’t be neutered until all the infection is gone and stays gone. Doing so will slow healing and maybe compromise his immune system even more.
Freya appears to be allergic to topical flea meds. She’s been obsessively licking her paw for a couple days after I put them on. I saw this briefly in the past, but I assumed it was a food issue as we were trying out a new food. Then we battled fleas this winter, whereas a lot of Advantage was used often and it got worse. This was the first just monthly dose she was given and she was back at worrying at her paw again. (I used Frontline this time, so brand clearly doesn’t matter).
