In case you hadn’t notice, I do love the Wildlife
Official website of UN World Wildlife
World World Wildlife Day is about ALL wildlife, not just the ones you and I may like or dislike (Octopuses ya’ll! They are WAY too smart!) But yes, even those smart sneaky evil pants. ALL Wildlife. I also mention Octupuses because the theme for this year is:
“Life below water: for people and planet”
Kickstarter – Remembering Lions Ends March 25th
Do any of you have a favourite wildlife animal???
I really should have started my health goals at the end of September…But when your father have a major heart attack…It sort of makes you kick into gear!
My goals were:
- Three pieces of fresh fruit a week
As well as with water I found this one shocking with how little fruit I was eating. I usually have some kind of salad at dinner, unless it spaghetti bolognese or something like that. Also like water though this was easy to do as well, instead of snacking on biscuits or chips when I’d get home, I’d have a piece of fruit instead. I just had to make sure that there was always some kind of fruit in the house. There were times when we didn’t have any fruit in the house, so I’d have to wait till the next day to go food shopping.
- Once a week I will make a meal from scratch
Yeah, I knew this one was going to be a lot more difficult to do. This one never happened, but I am determined to make it so for the next month. Once a week…How difficult can that be? Right?
- Three times a walk a 15 minute walk, at least. One at my partners house and two at my house.
This one has been a lot easier to do, the weather is becoming a lot more nicer here.
So this one I didn’t end up doing. I’ve been doing extra walking, but I do want to start doing this one as well. Especially as this time of year, all that good food that’s coming out.
- Drink one cup of water a day.
I shocked myself recently when I realised how little water I was actually drinking. The health benefits of drinking water are out of this world! This goal ended up being the easiest out of the lot and I thought it was going to be the hardest! I literally would get home from work and just have a glass. Those days I didn’t work, I end up having water before I drunk my coffee or tea, usually it would be before my second cup of the day. I was finding that once you were in the kitchen, preparing anything really, it was just so simple to fill a glass up. The biggest difference between the easiness of this one versus the fruit, water is pretty well everywhere. You don’t really have to “stock up” on it.
This or That? #98
This week Bookmark Chronicles would like to know:
What do you think is worse:
A book with water damage or a book with a broken spine?
Oh this a great question, mainly because they are both horrible situations to find yourself in and both can potentially lead quicker into the books becoming more easily damaged.
I would rather a book to have a damaged spine than water damage. It also depends on the water damage, has it ruined the ink? Has it gone all the way through? One of the major problems with water damage is that there can repercussions with the water. You have more of a chance of mould and attracting little insects. Watch out if it doesn’t dry properly.
A damaged spine you can get repaired, while you might be able to do something. Do not get it repaired yourself, take it to a professional. They are not too many places to get them repaired, but they are out there!
Coffee Tables Create the Illusion of Animals in Water
Artist Derek Pearce creates unique tables that look like animals are emerging from water. Please take a look, these are incredible. The tables are made from glass, plastic and resin. The glass is used as the water, and I have to say it has been beautifully shaped!
Having trouble waking up on this Monday? Feeling blue? Feeling like you REALLY don’t want to go to work? Then watch this video…Dogs playing with water!
Are you usually late, early, or right on time?
I am on time all the time (unless something unforeseen happens) I cannot abide lateness. I think it is just plain rude, the amount of people I’ve met in my life who are late for social events, but never for work. I think it’s a complete respect thing. Saying that though, if you say anything to them about they get really annoyed with you.
If you were or are a writer do you prefer writing short stories, poems or novels?
I do like to write, but it’s more for personal writing. I do all three really. They are just going to be published and no one shall ever see them! =D
Where did you live at age ten? Is it the same place or town you live now?
I don’t live at the same house now then when I was 10 (did English make my sense?lol) Where I live we have this joke that no matter where you live in my state you will always know someone who knows someone else you know, even though you have never meet each other.
Would you rather be able to fly or breathe under water?
I would rather be able to breathe under water, it’s one of my fears to be drowned alive. Being able to breathe under water would definitely help with that fear,lol
