Friend Makin' Monday - Love is in the Air

Holy crap - it's Monday!  I'm totally off a day since we got a snow day today!  We had well over a foot of the nasty white stuff dumped on us (thanks for saying only 7.5 inches, NWS!!)  Miss Angela and I went out & shoveled about 4-5 inches yesterday right before Randy got home from up north, and the wind was just starting to pick up then.  So this morning there were knee-deep drifts in places and bare cement in others.  I was out there shoveling steady for 3 hours and Randy came out & fired up the decrepit snowblower and did most of the lower part of the driveway.  

Technically, I was supposed to go into work today, I told them I'd be in once the roads got cleared some. Never made it.  Shucks.  The school called yesterday afternoon and not long after that, Randy got an email from his work saying he could work from home.

....and we just got the phone call about schools being closed tomorrow, too! 

Puxatauney Phil is over-rated.  Here in Michigan we have Woody and she has a better track record of being correct than Phil.  12 out of 16 years she's been right & also 6 out of the last 9 Super Bowls she's chosen the winner.  However Woody was under the weather this year, so Murray stepped in and saw her shadow.  I like that they actually wait until the sun is UP instead of doing the thing before dawn and of course there are cameras with lights = shadows!  But since the sun was shining pretty today, it was legit.

How about that halftime show last night?  I really like Katy Perry so I enjoyed her show a lot. I don't care about football so we'd do stuff during the game (fix food, take the dog out, etc) and hurry back in for commercials.  

So onto FMM....

LOVE is in the Air

Here’s how it works: you copy the questions, answer them and post them to your own blog. Then you come back here, and in the comments, post the link to your blog post with your answers to this week’s questions. If you don’t have a blog of your own, just post your answers in the comments.

Ugh, I don't even like Valentine's Day!  Feel free to cringe like I did when I heard this..."I'm not going to take you out to dinner on Val Day because you're practical like that and know that it'll be crazy at every restaurant."   I usually buy myself flowers, too.  So I'm really not too upset that I have to take Miss Angela to a dance competition out of state that weekend!!!

1. February is the month of LOVE…do you have one?  Yes - We've been married for 8 1/2 years and been together for (thinking.....) 13 years now!  I should get bonus points because our last name is Love!

2. Is there any activity you LOVE to do more than anything else?  Hmm.  Reading.  Going on walks if its nice out.  Photography is up there, too.  Horseback riding.

3. Is there a certain place you LOVE to go to on a regular basis?  Hmm - I could use this right now. The Buckstaff Bathhouse in Hot Springs Arkansas.   I'd love to go melt in a hot bath right now and get a massage.  The water there does great things to my skin, too. 

4. What animal do you LOVE the most?  We are a bi-petual household.  We have a Beagle & 2 cats and I can't say which one I love the most.  Horses are a close third.

5. What do you LOVE most about the city/state you live in?  4 seasons.  OK, after today, lets say 3 of the 4 seasons!!

6. Are there any people or just one person that you LOVE to be around?  My husband & daughter of course.  When I comes to going to dance competitions, there are 2 other moms who are my favorite people to be around.

7. What food do you LOVE the most?  MEAT.  Seriously anything fixed on a grill.  I've even tried grilled rattlesnake before and it was delicious. (tastes like chicken / turkey)

8. What drink do you LOVE the most?  I'm leaving Sara's answer up here. Water, followed by iced tea, followed by a well made margarita.  Thumbs up!

9. What book that you have read do you LOVE the most?  I can't think of any one that I LOVE - there are several I like well enough to re-read.  RuPaul's biography, Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Fabulous.  The entire Skye O'Malley saga from Beatrice Small.  The Earth's Children series from Jane M. Auel.

10. What is the craziest thing you have done in the name of LOVE?  I can't think of anything I'd consider crazy....oh wait.....I have Randy's name tattoo'd on my ankle.

I'm going to put a bonus # 11. on here.  My favorite LOVE quote.  From RuPaul - "If you can't love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love someone else?"
