Brrr. It was in single digits this morning when I first got up. In the past hour and a half, the temperature has gone up 13 Degrees F. My house is big and very old, and of course drafty. When the heat is on, it doesn't make it's way out to my little apartment very often. That's why I have the little electric fireplace. It surely does help a lot.
It's even too cold for Pogo. He's so tiny and has a hard time getting his body temperature very warm. Here's a photo of him in bed this morning. (This is how he slept most of the night.) At the moment, he's still in there. Every now and then I check to make sure he is okay.
Next, on the to the lovely blog award that Andrea at From The Sol gave to me a few days ago.
The rules are pretty easy: (1) Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you. (2) Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and link back to them. (3) Answer the five simple questions. (4) Nominate blogs for the award and notify each of them. (5) Display the award on your blog somewhere.
Here are the questions with my answers.
1. If you could change one thing, what would you change?
There's a lot I would like to change in human behavior, but I would really like to see an end to animal cruelty. I would like to see people being punished severely for hurting and torturing our precious animals.
2. If you could repeat an age, what would it be?
Now this one is a toughie. There were so many wonderful highlights in my life, but I guess I would stay the age I am now. I'm pretty happy and have a great family and friends.
3. What is one thing that really scares you?
The lack of respect that so many people have for each other and our earth and country really scares me. I am so glad to have grown up at a time when every body loved our flag and country and our streets were safe to walk on. It was okay to love God, and we all respected each other's religious beliefs.
4. What is one dream you have not completed, and do you think you'll be able to complete it?
I had so many dreams, and I think I've pretty much accomplished most of them. When I was younger, I thought it might be nice to be beautiful and rich and famous. It was not to be though, and I was okay with that. However, when I took the time to really think about it, I found that I was indeed rich with so many blessings. I had everything important to me. Famous? This stopped being important many years ago. And my Pogo thinks I'm beautiful and that makes my heart happy.
5. If you could be someone else for one day, who would it be?
Hmmmm, there's really no one I would want to be. However, maybe it would be nice to be President for one day so that I could make some changes in how we spend our money. My first priority would be our citizens, and keeping our earth healthy.
Now I would like to pass this award on to:
Kyra at Russian-Dutch Heart
Nani at The Chronicles of Nani
Su at Suruha
Mat at Mat' Memories
Judy at Aquascrap
Have a cup of coffee, and treat yourself to a visit to each of these wonderfully entertaining blogs. You'll love the stories and the photos, and you'll even pick up some wonderful scrapbooking goodies.
Now I must go and find out wny Pogo is barking at whatever is out by my door. (Yes, he's finally come out from under his warm little cocoon.) Till tomorrow, Y'all have a fabulous day.
Hugs, Edna B.
