Sunday Stealing: Carry A Tune

This weeks Sunday Stealing was stolen from Love Me Some Surveys.
Do you own a tablet of any kind? Yes.

What’s something people always assume about you that isn’t true? People assume since I am a big person (tall and fat), that I can hurt someone or that I am a bully.  Just because I am big does not mean I am a bad person.

On a scale of 1-10, how much do elevators scare you? The actual elevator ride does not scare me, so I will give that a 1.  Being in a small space with no way out scares me, so I give that a 10.

When you’re upset, do you vent to people or do you keep to yourself? I tend to keep to myself.

Have you ever watched a meteor shower? Yes.

Do you tend to put things off until the last minute? It depends on what those things housework.  Yuck!

How do you react to random strangers suddenly trying to make conversation with you? I get really nervous but do my best to be polite.

Do you have a lucky number? I have a favorite number; not sure how lucky it is.

Would you go out to dinner with Oprah? No.

Did you ever play sports? I played basketball in high school.  In my free time I use to play baseball with my family.

Do you feel guilty if you throw food away? I always feel guilty when I throw away food.

Do you think you could make it as a baker? No.

Are you one of those people who are wearing scarves with everything? Yes!  I love scarves!

Have you ever been in a castle? Not a real castle...but it is on my bucket list to do someday.

When you were little, did you ever play with Playdoh? Of course.

Would you rather write a mystery or love story? A mystery.  Love stories are boring.

Tell me about your worst fashion mistake: I make fashion mistake nearly every day.  My biggest is not accessorizing well.

Do you hate it when people smoke around you? I don't mind it too much.  I do hate when they actually blow smoke in my face.

How are you wearing your hair right now? My hair is up in a pony tail.

When’s the last time you were sick? Last week.

Would you rather have OJ or milk with your breakfast? I would rather drink orange juice.

What were you doing thirty minutes ago? Taking the dog outside to go potty.

Do you own any school related clothing articles? I have a few hoodies with the logo from the high school my son attended.

Would you rather call people or have them call you? I would rather they call me.  I hate interrupting people.

Can you carry a tune? Not really.

Who was the last person who unexpectedly texted you? My nephew...and it was great hearing from him.

Who do you text the most? My son.

Family Road Trip to Prairie du Chien

Today we went to Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, following the river down Highway 35. 
The Mississippi River is quite beautiful with all the snow.  The sky today was a 
beautiful blue with fluffy clouds and bright sun.  What a great day!
Frozen waves of water on the Mississippi.

Pretty Please for the Bed

Earlier this week, Shelby really wanted on the bed.
She even raised her paw to say "please". 
I didn't get my camera out fast enough to catch the "please". 
But did manage to get this photo! :)
