February in my neck of the woods is a gray month. Oh, we get bits and pieces of sunshine now and then, and occasionally it will manage to last for nearly a whole day, but those days seem to be few in number. That adds to the cabin fever that visits me in February every year – although I think this year it arrived in January. One of the ways I escape the gray, if only for a little while, is to immerse myself in the computer, and sharing with Cee is a good way to do that.
When you cut something with scissors, do you move your jaw (as if you were about to chew)? I don’t think so. I tried to test this yesterday, but I was so aware of what I was doing, I’m not sure I got an accurate reading. I can tell you that I hold my mouth open when I put mascara on though.
Do you chew your pens and pencils? No – I don’t think I’ve ever done that. I don’t chew my nails either, but I do pick at them a lot.
Are you a collector of anything? If so what? I think I’m a collector of way too much. I have a collection of cat figurines, for a long while I collected clown figurines (those are all gone now), then there was the time I collected small pewter figurines. And hobbies – I collect hobbies. When I move on to a new hobby, which happens every couple of years I think, you can tell by looking around my house what I’m into now. Currently, it’s alcohol ink painting. It’s just everywhere.
What size is your bed? My bed is a queen size, which is a good size. Now. When husband was still alive and Bailey could still get up on the bed, it was way too small. Bailey is a black lab/border collie mix and always sleeps on her side, legs stretched out. In the middle of the bed. Which meant we each had a small space on the edges of the bed. Plus, we always had a cat that would be sharing my space with me. Then Bailey’s old hips wouldn’t let her get on the bed, but we had gotten Shasta, who also likes the middle of the bed, although she sleeps more curled. And likes to snuggle up right against me.
Optional 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 having a hobby to keep me occupied during these gray February days. I am grateful for the one afternoon when the temperature was pretty nice and the sun was shining, and I went outside and swept pine needles off the front deck, which I could finally do because the warmer temperatures and rainy days had melted the snow off it. I am looking forward to being one week closer to spring.
Yesterday, I decided to paint this tile with a little tree frog on the flower stem – I found the reference photo on Pixabay. As usual, when I first finished it I was not happy with it, but today I like it better. That’s pretty normal for me.
Followed by a shameless pitch for my other blog: http://inkarts.wordpress.com. I’d love to have you visit!
