1. Do you have a favourite outfit you like to wear?

Sure – my pajamas! They are comfortable, and I wear them all the time, unless I go somewhere. Then I have a certain outfit, which is black stretchy pants, and a black & white top.

2. What is the worst thing you were forced to wear as a child (school uniforms aside) ?

Big, clunky, brown, lace up oxford shoes. I hated them. They were supposed to be good for my feet, as my ankles turned in. They also had to have metal arch supports inside the shoes. I hated those too. I had to wear socks … I hate socks even today. All my friends had cute little sandals, and patent leather shoes, girly shoes, etc. All I had were those hated clunkers!

3. Do you have a sweet tooth, and if so, are you a chewer, cruncher, or sucker?

Yes, all the above kinds. I love sweets, but sadly can’t have them any more. I do cheat once in awhile with a tiny bite of something sweet. It’s hard to see other people enjoying sweets, and I can’t have them. Sugar free ones are just not the same.

4. Do you think you could eat your weight in chocolate?

I don’t think so even though I love chocolate. See above … can’t have it anyway.

  1.  Do you have any family traditions?

Not so much any more. The family has dwindled or scattered, so we don’t get together to do things, or very seldom.

  1.  With December on its way, have you ever been carol singing?

Nope.

  1.  Do you decorate your home for the Christmas holidays?

Not any more. I used to put up a tree and decorations, but we don’t even give gifts any more.

  1. Do you enjoy the Christmas rush for preparations and shopping?

No, since I don’t do this any more.

***

Well, I probably should not even have tried to answer these questions, because it all sounds so boring. But, we do try to get together with my daughter and family who live here in town for a little while a day or two before Christmas. We do face time with our other daughter and family who live in another state. It’s fun to see all their decorations and holiday fun.

1. As a child, did you prefer to watch TV, play games outside on a nice day, or read?

I did all that when I was a kid, but the best was going to the library, checking out books, and deciding which one to start on when I got home.

2. What would you rather do now, read a book, watch a movie at home, dine out with friends, or go down the pub?

Exactly the same … read a book

3. Are you fashion conscious?

Nope, not at all. I wear what is comfortable to me.

4. Do you wear slippers, clogs or go barefoot indoors?

I only have flip flop or similar sandals which I wear year round. Only if I go somewhere I’ll wear my Crocs.

1. If you were a ghost who would you haunt, and why? … Every day is a new day, so I’d pick someone new each day.

2. If broomsticks were legitimate modes of transport, would you like one?  … Sure, that would be fun!

3. Would you cook in a cauldron? … Yes, and I’d probably make a yummy stew for supper.

4. Have you ever had your fortune told? … No

1. How organised are you? Do you plan ahead, take things as they come, or does it depend on the circumstances?

I am never organized with anything, which is a major symptom/indicator of ADHD, which I have.

2. How many Christmas presents have you bought already?

None. We don’t exchange gifts with each other any more, but our kids give us things. We give them cash money.

3. Do you prefer a family gathering for special occasions, or just you and your significant other?

We very occasionally get together with our daughter and family, but mostly it’s just me and the Mr. here by ourselves.

4. How many words do you think your pet understands?

We don’t have any pets any more. When we did, I think they knew lots of words. They were all smart.

1. When you go food shopping, do you go with a list or amble down the aisles putting things in your basket or cart that you fancy or think you need?

We do both. Start with a list and then add other things as we go along.

2. When the temperatures drop for the colder months, is there a specific date you put the heating on or do you flick the switch when you start to feel cold?

We don’t have a certain date to turn on the heat. We’re so used to hot weather in the summer that as soon as it gets below 70 degrees F we’re cold. We’ve already turned our heat on. Of course it’s just flipping a switch. This time of year we have alternating chilly and hot weather. So it’s heat one day and A/C the next sometimes.

3. Keeping with the cold theme, do you prefer a hot water bottle or an electric blanket at night?

We don’t use either of these. We have regular blankets and quilts.

4. How do you feel about log burners? Do you think they are messy or cosy?

We’ve never had a fireplace or anything like that. Sounds nice, but messy too.

Gratitude:
When was the last time you laughed out loud?

I laugh out loud probably every day. Lots of things strike me as funny.

Welcome back, Melanie! Thanks so much for the SYW questions! ❤

***

Would you rather have no nose, or no arms? (apologies to Fandango, who is olfactory challenged)..

I don’t want to be without either one.


What is your spirit animal?  (Mine –>  🐺  Lone of course  😉  )

***See painting and poem below

My spirit animal is the Tiger! I’ve known this since I was a kid. My birth year is in the year of the Tiger, and I had many dreams where a tiger would come to tell me so. Of course I couldn’t have a real tiger for a pet, but cats will do just fine.


Do you think cavemen had nightmares about cavewomen?   🥍  💪🏼😱

Who knows, dreams are strange and I imagine some would be about this.


Where did the name Pina Colada come from?   (for those out of the know of foo-foo drinks, a ‘pina colada” is rum, pineapple and coconut juices and sometimes fancier liquor for a bigger kick (with a paper umbrella sometimes)   🍹🍸   Since I dislike coconut except in the odd Mounds bar or on shrimp; I never had one. 
I’ve never drank one of these but it sounds good, but without the alcohol. Where it came from I have no idea – maybe a tropical island or somewhere.

This is a picture I painted a long time ago.

I’ve always known the tiger is my spirit animal.

This is a poem I wrote about it years ago.

~

Tiger

In misty dreams you came to me

When I was only two or three

A forest dark, and deep, and green

I wondered what my dreams could mean

You were my friend, my Spirit kin

A guardian without, a guardian within

I was born into your year

Tiger Spirit always near

Magnificent eyes, shining bright

I weep at what now’s your plight

Endangered in this cruel world

Victim of the weapons hurled

If only we could be at peace

Return to dreams without surcease

To that mystery forest in the night

We could try to again make it right

I know that you will always be

In my dreams

A part of me

1.   Are you an early riser or late starter to the day?

Somehow I’ve become an early riser. We get up at about 4 a.m. every day. I don’t know why it happened, because normally I’ve always been a night owl. Maybe when the Mr. retired we just kept on with his schedule when he had to go to work. Used to I’d be up past midnight. Now, bedtime is around 9:30 p.m.

2.  Do you adopt Breakfast like a king, Lunch like a prince and Dine like a Pauper

We have a normal sized breakfast, a medium sized lunch, and a larger meal at dinner time.

3.  Do you have a sweet or savoury tooth?

I like both sweet and savoury (salty) snacks, but I can’t really have sugary things now, just an occasional bite, so that’s not fun.

4.  Would you prefer a hot relaxing bath or a massage (remember, family friendly people!)?

I’d rather have the bath, that is if I could get into and out of a tub. I’d never ever want a massage.

1. If you were to go to a desert island and could only take five things with you, what would they be?

It depends on how long I have to stay there. Am I stranded for a long time, or am I on a vacation? I sunburn easily so I’d need shade. I’d want an air conditioner, some iced tea, and food, and a phone to call for help.

2. What popular song (any era) best describes you?

“Peace Train” by Cat Stevens

3. If you could only use three basic ingredients to make a meal, what would they be?

Eggs, bacon, milk

4. Do you allow your pet on the furniture?

Yes! Pets are family, and family sits on furniture.

1. Which of the following could you do without? TV, Computer, Mobile Phone.

I’d give up TV as I don’t like much of what’s on anyway. It’s always on, but mostly the Mr. is watching, and I’m on my computer.

2. Do you have a lot of old photographs in a box, or did you put them in albums?

I have a bookshelf filled with lots of photo albums. Then I have some carrier bags with photos in envelopes, and then a storage tub that has a bunch in there. I like photos, but haven’t had any printed out in years, as most now days are on my phone. My daughter prints some out and gives me a few of our grand-daughter once in awhile, too.

3. What was the first thing you bought for yourself when you started work?

A brown leather purse, and I still have it.

4. What is the biggest thing you have bought that did not require finance?

Not sure I get this question. Do you mean pay totally in cash? What about credit or debit cards – is that kind of financing?

I can’t think of anything big we’ve paid cash for … just regular household needs and very few of those were paid in cash if any.

We pay sometimes in cash at the fast food places. haha 🙂
