Are you an Early to bed, early to rise person, a night owl and day sleeper/dozer, or an ‘I’ll sleep when I’m dead’ person?   

I go to sleep in the recliner about 10:30 p.m., while reading, then about 4 hours later I go to bed. Then I’m up between 5 and 6 in the morning. I don’t know what that would be as to the question. If being a morning person means you’re wide awake, chipper, and talkative, then I’m definitely not.

What are some misconceptions about your hobby, should you have a hobby?

Is taking pictures with my phone a hobby? I’ve been asked why I take so many, and why they are of just ordinary or odd things most times. Well, why not? It’s fun, and I use them for the photo challenges. There’s no rules about photos having to be only formal, posed, or picture book perfect.

A penguin walks through the door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?   

I answered this already on my 20 Odd Questions post. I’ll think of some other reason a penguin is here, with a sombrero on…okay, here’s why…

The penguin is the local pest exterminator. He dances around stomping on bugs while singing this song over and over. If that’s not enough to make the bugs go away, then I don’t know what is. But, I really like this song, so I dance around with the penguin, and it’s a party!

Aliens have landed…do they come in peace?

Yes. They are already here living alongside us. Do you see any mass chaos, or anything? Do you even notice them? They notice you, and are taking notes.

What are you really, incredibly thankful for this week?

I’m glad we don’t have any snow. It’s been cold in the mornings, but nice seasonal temps in the afternoons, around the 50s to 60s. I’m glad the geese made it back here after their long journey. When thousands take to the air it is a sight to see. 🙂

Christmas, 2015,we had a blizzard here in our town. It was a mess for weeks. Our flights were delayed and cancelled trying to get back home. Don’t want to do that again!

There was one Christmas, probably 1997, that we had snow on Christmas day. Well, there might have been other times, but this time was a big one, too. Just as we were opening presents that morning, these huge snowflakes started falling, and before long all outside was a winter wonderland. Then we had to drive over to my parent’s house for the get-together with family.

One of the gifts to my daughter was, at the time, a CD of the songs by Hanson, one of which was “MMMBop”. You remember that one? I liked it then, and I still do like that song. Anyway, she put it on to listen to while we continued opening gifts. It was on repeat, so we heard it over and over for quite a while. Now we call it our “MMMBop” Christmas! 🙂

Look! Here it is now!

Snow: Pretty, cold, wet, fun, dangerous

I don’t really like cold weather at all. Snow is so pretty though. It’s exciting to anticipate the first snow of the winter season. I look at it awhile, then I want it gone. I’ve sometimes caught individual snowflakes on the sleeve of my dark coat, or even taken a black sheet of construction paper outside to catch snowflakes. Wonderful to see how they are all so delicate and lacy. They all have different names too, according to how they are formed. I think a common one is called a dendrite crystal. I read a whole book about snowflakes one time.  (haha – yes, I read a whole book!) There is one by Kenneth G. Libbrecht, called “The Snowflake: Winter’s Secret Beauty”. This may have been the one I read. There are a lot of beautiful photos, and information.

Last Christmas, we had a blizzard here in our town. It was a mess for weeks. Our flights were delayed and cancelled trying to get back home. Don’t want to do that again!
