The Missing Cat (see previous post) and a Meme
Mom's internet is down again but she had her post ready so here it is.
The handsome son, Tim
Our oldest cat, Spunky, decided to spend her day in the middle of my messy bed. Here she is along with a meme. I took the sleeping picture first and she woke up just long enough to give me the look only cats do to perfection. Now all the cats (at least for now) are present and accounted for.
From Kendra at A Word Fitly Spoken.
I kept some of her answers.
A - Available/Single? Married
B - Best Friend? Several good friends - no best. And of course all of you.
C - Cake or Pie? Brownies, silly.
D - Drink Of Choice? Decaf coffee in cold weather; ice water in the summer
E - Essential Item You Use Everyday? You're looking at it
F - Favorite Color? Need you ask? Purple!!
G - Gummy Bears Or Worms? How about neither? Chocolate covered cherries or truffles?
Peanut Brittle? Rice Krispy treats? Anything but gummies. The kids could have my share except that I don't want their teeth to fall out.
H - Hair Style? As short as possible. I hate fooling with hair.
I - Indulgence? Music (classical and opera but I like other types as well).
J - January Or February? Neither but at least February has Valentine's Day
K - Kids & Their Names? Carol, Ricky, Sheryl, Jim, and Tim (and the girls of course - Elcie, Rochelle, and Rebecca
L - Life Is Incomplete Without? I'll have to think about that one. My life is pretty complete right now although I went a little crazy when gremlins attacked the modem.
M - Marriage Date? July 1, 1989 (this time around)
N- Number Of Siblings? 1 brother
O - Oranges Or Apples? apples
P - Phobias/Fears? Acrophobia
Q - Favorite Quote? The one on every piece of email I send. I pasted it below.
R - Reason to Smile - Merle's jokes
S - Season? Fall and spring
T - Tag Three People? I don't tag - you're welcome to join in.
U - Unknown Fact About Me? Is there anything I missed in the last year or so? I was a brunette very briefly when I was 19 but I may have already said that.
V - Vegetable you don't like? Spinach
W - Worst Habit? Procrastination
X - X-rays You've Had? My broken wrist for sure. I've stayed pretty clear of injuries otherwise.
Y - Your Favorite Food? You mean when eating out? Chinese, especially Hunan and dim sum. Also Thai but it's harder to find here.
Z - Zodiac Sign? Aries (on the cusp of Taurus)
Favorite quote: (many of you have already seen this)
Albert Camus (from The Plague)
In the depths of winter,
I finally realized
that deep within me
an Invincible summer.
I'll have a Christmas meme up in the next couple of days. I was going to do it today but I was tagged for this one and didn't want to PROCRASTINATE.
Don't let me forget. It came from Sandy at Abandoned in Pasadena and it's a good one. Sandy, just noticed I never added you to the blogroll. Fixed as of now.
And hi to Chris at Rude Cactus. His wife Beth (So the Fish Said and Diary of a Playgroup Dropout) has been on the blogroll for a while now. Chris and Beth have a stunning 16 month old toddler named Mia and have some wonderful stories about (and pictures of) her on their blogs.
