Nurt Thurs – Your Blessing
I have a lot of blessings, but I am going to focus on the furbabies this week. Because, at the moment, they are the only ones not really asking me for anything…You know, other than to pick up after them, feed them, cuddle them (even when they don’t want them). Other than that, they don’t ask anything of me. I guess though, as well, I don’t resent them for that either. I feed them, they love me unconditionally, it’s a good deal.
They have both been there for me when a lot of others haven’t. They were the reason that I got off of the couch, someone had to take care of them. They both wanted to go outside. They have both scared me in the past year, both of them are now on tablets for the rest of their lives. “Funnily” enough they both have neurological issues (maybe it’s something I said?) So we’re all going through this together, even though they would absolutely kill each other, if they actually met!
I just wanted to say that I hope you’ve been enjoying these “Getting to know me Blogs” as much as I’ve been enjoying writing them! Here we go with the last week…
- Regularly burn incense?
I have actually been getting more into burning incense and the like. Since I developed an anxiety condition last year, just meditation and calming my mind has been helping and I’ve been really improving. Maybe “getting more into burning…” Isn’t the greatest description in the world.
- Who would you like to see in concert?
I would love to see Bruno Mars, but he’s very unlikely to come to my little town.
- Hot tea or cold tea?
Hot tea, I’m not even honestly sure that I’ve had even had cold tea. Apart from iced tea…with whip cream!
- Tea or coffee?
Oh lordy…How can one choose?! I drink both, however, in some situations I will only drink one during certain times. For example, when I’m sick or have the flu, I will only drink tea as when I’m sick, I can’t stand coffee. I don’t even drink coffee to try and stay awake, I drink coffee as treat almost.
- Sugar cookies or snickerdoodles?
I have no idea what a snickerdoodle is, so I’d have to go with sugar cookies.
- Can you swim well?
I can alright, but I’m not ready for the English channel or anything like that.
- Can you hold your breath without holding your nose?
*tries* Yes, I can! It looks less stupid than when holding it. (Ditto,lol)
- Are you patient?
It’s actually one of the things people know the most about me, how patient I can be, when most others would lose it. It’s a trick between not taking things personally and not actually caring. Especially when it comes to work and I know it’s nothing that I’ve stuffed up.
- DJ or band at a wedding?
I’d prefer a DJ just because then you can make requests for the original song, rather than someone trying to cover a song. However, I think having a band would look really classy. I’ve been to a funeral where a duo decided to dedicate a song that the deceased really like, and they sounded terrible. I felt it was so disrespectful, the person didn’t like the song because YOU sung it, they liked because the person they liked, sang it. I don’t know, it’s always felt really wrong to me.
- Ever won a contest?
No, I’ve had some luck though with my works lottery group. We sometimes win 30-40 bucks here and there…Enough for another ticket.
- Ever had plastic surgery?
No, I’m pretty okay with my body. The only thing I wish I could change is that my teeth would be a little whiter. Not stupidly blinding white, but just a little whiter. It’d also look really cool because the two herbivore teeth that are usually next to the two big ones, mine are missing, they just never grew threw. So my teeth look like vampire teeth, and I love it.
- Which are better, black or green olives?
I don’t really love Olives, I’d rather not have them…If I had to choose I’d go with the green ones.
- Can you knit or crochet?
I can’t really do either, I haven’t crochet in a while, so I’d probably have to restart and relearn.
- Best place for a fireplace?
If I could have a dream place for a fireplace, I would have it in a library type room, probably off from the main living area. In a medium sized room, so the air doesn’t get all smokey.
- Do you want to get married?
Only to the right person.
- If married, how long have you been married?
- Who was your HS crush?
Oh I had a lot…I didn’t date any of them, I was way to shy to actually ask. I had a lot though.
- Do you cry and throw a fit until you get your own way?
Umm…No, I’m not even sure I did that as a kid. Apparently I used to only throw fits when I was constrained, like when I was put into a seat belt. I hated to be constrained, still do.
- Do you have kids?
I am furbaby Aunty and step mama. My brothers dog is technically his, since he’s the whole reason he got her. Only a couple of months after we got her though, he moved to Melbourne and left her with us. My partners cat is actually his ex’s cat, but when they split up, she said to hold onto him for a year and if she didn’t come back, my partner could keep him. She wanted to travel, and his had the cat for about 3 or 4 years now.
- Do you want kids?
No right now, there’s still a lot to get settled first. I would prefer to be married first as well.
- What’s your favorite color?
The toughest question. I love Yves Saint Laurent’s Babouche yellow. Yes, I chose a nail polish color, they are ever so precise.
- Do you miss anyone right now?
Wherever I am, I always miss my mum and my dog, or if I’m with them, I miss my partner and his cat. Don’t tell anyone I said this, but if I could, I would actually live with all of them, my mum, my partner and the cat and the dog. I’d be very happy.Even though Pippy and Travie would probably kill each other. As long as it was a big enough house to give us all enough space.
- Who is your favorite author?
At the moment my favourite author is Jodi Picoult. I think I have literally every single one of her books and I would highly recommend them. Especially if you are a person that likes to look at how other people think.
- If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I actually really like the city where I live, home is where the heart is. As mentioned above though, I would just love a really huge house. Where I could live with whoever, but also enough room for visitors. Maybe somewhere near a beach. Should be easy…right?
Share Your World … Week 38
Are you a hugger or a non-hugger?
Haha! I made a comment a few months ago about this very subject. I am hug-non-hugger,lol…I have an issue with hugging people mainly when I feel uncomfortable around them, or when they call you weird or something for not wanting to hug. I have some issues when being hugged mainly by the male gender after an incident with a male friend. It’s not something I feel comfortable with explaining and feel like I shouldn’t have too. If I don’t want to hug, I don’t want too.
What is your least favorite Candy?
Anything with that aniseed flavour, I can’t do it. It just tastes horrible to me. My tongue does not like it.
What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “fun”?
Honestly, I think of my dog. She just loves us being around, and having “her family” around her and whenever we are around, she’s just fun. She even makes waking up pleasant, she’s so cute and wiggles a lot when we wake up. It’s hard not to feel like fun when something is just fun and lovely to be around.
List of Favorite Smells: What smells do you love? Whether it’s vanilla scented candles or the smell of coffee in the morning or the smell of a fresh spring rain…make a list of all the things you love for a little aromatherapy.
- When you first open up that new jar of instant coffee, moccona coffee, indulgence…Bliss!
- My dog sometimes has this popcorn smell when she’s been sleeping for a long time, mainly during Winter…Makes me hungry too,lol.
- I have this candle that I’ve only burned a bit the once, I loved the smell so much and when I went back to get more there were none left! So I’ll probably never burn it again.
- I love the smell of freshly mowed grass at the beginning of Spring, after Winter has started to die down.
Reality Check always come out of nowhere and they seem to always change your entire week and remind you of what is really important. I had one of those moments this week.
My dog suddenly became ill, for those who know. When I lost my last dog, she went suddenly too. She had never been sick, other than an upset stomach here and there, she lost some teeth along the way, but basically pretty healthy…Then in one week…She was gone, I had been in denial right up until the night before we had to put her down.
Although my other dog seems to be fine other than she’s had an issue with her “behind”. It’s the first time in a long time I’ve actually been worried. Just reminds you, I had all this stuff I was supposed to do and I have been watching her like a hawk to make sure she stays safe.
Just keeps you in check really =)
