  1.  Do you find it relatively easy to fall asleep at night?

I can fall asleep very fast, anywhere any time and I have no problem at night.

  1.  Do you remember your dreams?

Yes, most of the time, at least for a short time. I’ll write them down. I have lots of dream journals.

  1.  If you can’t sleep, do you watch TV, read or listen to music in the hope you will nod off?

There’s hardly ever a time I can’t fall asleep, but if it does happen I won’t read or watch TV. I just get comfortable again and I’m back asleep. I do have the sound machine set on ocean waves going every night, though. Or I’ll try to think of song lyrics to songs, and I’m usually asleep before I get to the end of one.

  1.  Can you literally sleep anywhere (chair, sofa, bus, train, flight etc)?

Yes, I can be asleep in a matter of minutes anywhere any time. I’m almost asleep right now. If I close my eyes for a little bit, I’ll be asleep anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or two.

Who is your favorite author and why?

My favorite author is Poppy Z Brite, because I really like her novels, “Lost Souls”, and “Drawing Blood”.  I liked the first two so much, I began to write my fan fiction, “Two Souls: Into the Fire”, to continue the stories. This got me to discover blogging and posting my writing online for others to read.

There are a few more favorite authors of which I will buy and read everything they write.

These are:

Laurie Notaro – humorous memoir type stories

Sophie Kinsella – fiction Shopaholic series

Cathy Glass – true stories of her experiences fostering children

Jenny Lawson – humorous & also serious memoir type stories

***

What was your dream job as a child?

My first dream job that of course didn’t work out was … archeologist. I wanted to go on digs and uncover mummies and treasures and animal bones. This was when I was like eleven or 12 years old. I told all my friends. I also would go on hikes and whenever I came across some animal bones I’d take them home to examine. I never came across any treasures, but I did see some mummies (they were in a museum).

But mainly my dream job was to be a writer with something published. I wrote stories since I could even print words. I guess you could say I did get my goal of being a published writer.

I publish things on my blog every day and people read them.

I’ve also been published in magazines with my poems.

It’s nice when a dream comes true! 🙂

What’s your favorite meal to cook and/or eat?

***

My favorite meal to eat is anything Mexican food. I like enchiladas, chili, tacos, tamales, fajitas, salsa, guacamole, and the tortillas, both corn and flour, also the rice and beans, well, everything including the chips and dips.

We used to make this at home a lot, and we both know how and it always turns out so good.

One other kind of meal I like is Lumpia, which is like an egg roll made from scratch. I learned it from a Vietnamese lady friend of ours, though this may be a regular Asian kind of dish. Anyway I really like it, and it’s fun to make, but it takes so long to make it … like at least 2 full hours with no breaks to get them done. My recipe makes a whole bunch, and they do freeze well, to be heated later in the oven.

What color describes your personality and why?

***

Here’s a link to a quiz to see what your personality color is:

myCOLOR

***

I didn’t take the quiz, but I read about the colors, and in my opinion I am green and purple.

I like all colors at different times, but my favorite color to wear is black! All my clothes have mostly black to them. A few things have a little bit of another color, such as white, or orange, or sky blue.  One color I do not wear and don’t feel good in is red.

It is funny how certain colors you wear can make you feel good or irritate you. How about being drawn to certain colors? I don’t have much in brown, but my eye is drawn to brown more than most other colors for some reason.

***

What irritates you about the home you live in?

I don’t think much irritates me about this house. It’s fine for us, not too big, not too small. We’re used to it after over 20 years living here. We’re comfortable.

Oh, as usual with most of us, we wish we had more counter space in the kitchen, or more closet space, or an extra room for crafts or whatever. But with just us two here, it’s fine.

We have nice neighbors, and we know most of them. Everyone is helpful if needed, and each looks after the other neighbors, especially if someone goes out of town, by keeping an eye on the house.

All in all, we like where we live.

  1. What is the most comfortable vehicle you have even ridden in or driven?

I’ve been in many kinds of transportation. I’d say probably a stretch Limo. It was the day of the blizzard. We were at my daughter’s house in Missouri and we heard the weather was going to be horrible there and at home in TX. We cut our visit short (wah 😦 _) but when we got to the airport they cancelled our flight. So they put us in a wonderful Limo and drove us to St. Louis (2 hours away) to catch a flight from there. We barely made it to Dallas, then the flights were all cancelled there. So it was either wait for the airports to re-open which who knows how long that would be, or rent a car and drive home (3 hours away). It was pure awful driving in a blizzard, at very slow speeds on the highway we could barely even see. It took way longer than 3 hours before we finally made it home. But yeah, the Limo was nice, warm and comfortable. I even went to sleep for a little while. 🙂

  1. What is the most uncomfortable vehicle you have even ridden in or driven?

I don’t know how to rate these. They always got me where I was going, so that was good. I’ll just go with bumper cars at the amusement park. Those are uncomfortable, and people crash into you. Fun, but jolting ride for sure. haha  🙂

 

  1. Have you ever ridden a horse (or a donkey at the seaside)?

Why does it have to be at a seaside?  Well, yes I’ve ridden a horse a few times. I had my photo taken in my back yard while sitting on a pony when I was a kid. Then my cousin and I went horseback riding every Saturday morning when we were pre teens. We had no idea how to ride a horse, but we’d pay our dollar for an hour, and they’d give us a huge horse to ride wherever we wanted. So we did! It was fun. Now where we used to ride is all built up with businesses. It was just several miles of empty fields when we were there and got horses from the stable.

 

4.  If you could have one of these as a pet, which would it be and why?

Black panther, cheetah, leopard, lynx

I like these choices as I like cats. Let’s forget for a moment that these are all wild animals, and pretend they are tame cats and would never claw, bite, or eat us. I’d have the black panther. I have a large ceramic black panther already. My real cat Paolo (RIP) used to hide behind it when he was little. haha 🙂

And here’s a post I wrote about it back in 2016:

img_4531

“Please Introduce Yourself”

Rawr! Grrr! … oh, hi there! Didn’t mean to frighten you. I’m the nice lady’s black panther. I got all shined up for my photo. I’ve lived here for quite a few years, and my place of honor is up at the very top of the television/entertainment center. That’s so I can keep an eye on all the goings on in the house.

The nice lady always wanted a black panther, because her grandma had one. Her panther was almost my twin, except for having green jewel eyes. I like the cats of the nice lady’s house. I know that at least one cat, Paolo, likes me, too. When he was just a tiny kitten, he’d jump up beside me on the shelf, and then hide behind me for protection. Or, maybe he was just playing hide and seek with the nice lady. He’d be completely hidden, then peek over my back, to see if she’d find him. It was a fun game. He’s all grown up now, and is bigger than I am! 🙂

Q & A – Blogging

Q & A – Blogging Featured

https://fromcavewalls.wordpress.com/2023/01/12/a-blogging-survey-if-you-please/

***

Maggie has asked some questions about how we do our blogging. She can be found at the above link. 🙂

***

1. How many times per week do you post? Do you post multiple times a day? If so, how many?

I publish a post every day of the week, most times three per day, occasionally less, or sometimes more.

2. How many blogs do you follow?

I never counted, but probably more than 100.

3. Do you read all the blogs you follow every day? If not, how often do you read other blogs?

No, I don’t because some I can’t even find. I need to go through and delete some inactive blogs. Those I do read tend to post at least once, sometimes more times a day, so they are getting my attention to go read their blogs. I try to read them every day.

4. Do you seek out new blogs to follow? If so, how do you find them?

Occasionally I’ll find new blogs to read. Maybe I’ve seen their comment or gravatar on someone else’s blog, or they are someone new who likes or comments on my posts. So I’ll always try to visit theirs. It sometimes leads to a longtime blog friend, or maybe just a few back and forths. Depends on how much interaction there is.

5. Do you comment on the blogs you read? If not, why? Do you respond to all the comments left on your blog?

I always respond and answer all the comments on my blog. I do leave comments on other blogs, but not as frequently. This is because I like reading the blog, but don’t have anything to comment about, and other people have said already what I would have said.

6. Do you ever close comments on a blog you post? If so, why?

I’ve never closed comments.

7. Do you ever unfollow someone? If so, why?

I have unfollowed some, mainly because they hadn’t posted in a very long time, or they never ever had visited mine. After awhile I unfollow them. I’ve also unfollowed a couple because of offending content.

8. What content inspires you to follow a blogger?

Lots of things I like to read about, so if the subject is interesting to me, I’ll follow.

9. What content turns you off from following someone?

Not a whole lot will make me not follow someone, but I’ll not want to see porn or nudity. I can take some mild erotica and profanity in writing, just don’t want to see images. I don’t like to follow someone who constantly complains (they never do anything else), or overly religious (some is okay), or political. I can overlook some of these if they have other content that I do like.

10. How important is it to you that you add a photo to every post?

I really like to add some kind of photo, or clip art to my posts. So much so, that I’ve ran out of space for any new ones in my media storage.

11. Leave me a link for one blogger (other than yourself) that you think I should check out.

A lot of us all follow the same bloggers it seems. I will try to think of someone maybe you haven’t come across before, but I like.

  • Did you stay up to see the New Year in?
  • Nope, I was asleep shortly after 10 p.m. But fireworks popping nearby woke me up about midnight.
  •  Are there any special occasions or events coming up in 2023 for you or your family?
  • My daughter, son-in-law, & grand-son plan on coming to visit in March. This will be awesome as we have not been together for at least 3 years.
  •  Do you keep a diary?
  • Not really. Sometimes I write stuff down, but mostly in just note forms here and there. I’ve tried the day to day deal and I always forget to do it, then lose the book, start another, then lose it.
  •  How did yesterday differ from January 1st 2022 or was there no difference?
  • I can’t remember what I was doing on the first of January 2022, but probably the same as I did now. Not much changes around here at all.

What were these carols about?

1. Away in a Manger

It’s about sending away the laundry to a commercial laundry service that uses a mangle. ***note

A mangle or wringer is a mechanical laundry aid consisting of two rollers in a sturdy frame, connected by cogs and (in its home version) powered by a hand crank or by electricity. While the appliance was originally used to wring water from wet laundry, today mangles are used to press or flatten sheets, tablecloths, kitchen towels, or clothing and other laundry.

2. Hark the Herald Angels Sing.

The tax accountant firm of Hark & Herald, figure out all the angles in tax returns.

3. O Little Town of Bethlehem.

This is an ad for the Bethlehem Chamber of Commerce, inviting people to move there, and experience the ambience of small town living.

4. Silent Night.

This is one of the silent movies marathon shown in a local theater.

5. While Shepherds Watched

Shepherds got together for the annual sheep herding contests.

Part 2:

What were these songs really about?

6. Mistletoe and Wine

This is about stomping grapes with your toes to make wine.

7. Jingle Bell Rock

This is about the famous Rock in Ireland that when tourists visit they have to ring a bell.

8. Walking in a Winter Wonderland

They call it walking, but really it’s running … the dogsled mushing race in Alaska each year.

9. Santa Baby

This is about Baby New Year’s playmate, Santa Baby. They’re great friends.

1. How organised are you in either your working or private life? …

I’m never organized. I try, but it is a definite symptom of my ADHD, that organization of things is so hard to do. I get panicky just trying to do it, and so stop.

2. Do you remember family birthdays or anniversaries and send cards? …

Yes, most times I do remember and send a card, or at least a text message.

3. If you see something in a shop that is an extravagance but you can afford it, do you buy it?

I used to buy things that caught my interest on a whim, but not really any more. I have enough stuff, and should get rid of a lot of it.

4. Are you looking forward to the New Year? …

Meh … seems just like another day around here. We’ll say Happy New Year, but that’s about it. Hopefully it will be a good one to us and our family.
