On this bright, sunny morning, what better thing could I do than sit and share more of my world? Especially since it’s too cold in this sunny morning to go do what I should do outside.
If you were given the opportunity to ride in a helicopter would go? Yes. I would like to do that, just as I would like to go up in a hot air balloon. New experiences are often good.
What are some of your favorite type of proteins to eat? (meat, seafood, eggs, soy, cheese, nuts) I think the proteins I eat most often are cheeses, beans, eggs – although eggs are less frequent than the other two. I don’t like to eat a lot of meat, and if I have meat in my meal at all, it’s always a small portion. Seafood – sometimes, but I don’t like fishy anything. Shrimp sometimes call me although the price of it usually means I’ll buy a bagged, prepared shrimp meal instead of making my own. But I’m a lazy cook.
What would be your preference, awake before dawn, at dawn, or awake before noon? Waking at dawn is good, although it’s a pleasure to sleep a little later occasionally. My furry girls, however, think right before dawn or at dawn is the best time. In my much younger days, I liked to stay up into the wee hours on weekends (when the next day was not a workday) and sleep late in the mornings. That doesn’t happen now – in large part because I can’t stay awake very late.
What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. A trip to Costco inspired me to buy some of their prepared, refrigerated, no preservatives meals. Is that real inspiration? The news events inspired me to want a new world to live in. Sorry, friends, I’m having trouble with inspiration these days. Just wait till we’ve had a month of gray skies, snow, and really cold – won’t I be great fun then?!
In the meantime, a critter update. I think my chipmunk friend did go out the door I left open after I saw him run across this room, because there’s been no further sign of him. Critters, yes, but they’ve turned out to be mice – I managed to capture one in the live trap, and as I let him loose in the yard thought about how that might be a really bad idea. Then I went through some days of critters eating the bait I put in the live trap, but not triggering the door. Sigh. Time to get serious, and deadly. I bought a couple of mouse traps, the unkind type, and last night caught three mice. I’m hoping that’s all. The cold weather has made them search for and find a way into my house, apparently. I hope they get the notice, that I’m done fooling around now.
And in a more uplifting mood – a couple of this week’s inks: Ghost Trees.
