My answers:
1. My idea of roughing it is when the power goes out ( despite the fact that we have a generator).
2. I never get sick of talking about CATS ( you knew that though) 🙂
3. My youth was a complete waste- I didn’t have a cat until I got married and that is when my life really started.
4. My “golden years” are something I have not even thought about, I try to live in the now and rarely think of the past or the future.
I finally got a good shot of Millie’s eyes, he has a blue one and a green one, but the blue ends up red in most photos.

3. I have a hard time                              .

4. I really enjoy                               .
My answers:
1. A book I would like to see made into a movie is An Interrupted Life: The Diaries 1941-1943 by Etty Hillesum.I reviewed this book back in September 2016.
If I had the money, I would buy the rights and get it made into a movie. I found it even more interesting than Anne Frank’s Diary because Etty was in her 20’s when this was written and was trying to find love as more of her rights were being taken away. It is so good that I haven’t finished it because I know there will be nothing else of hers to read.
2. I could afford a billboard, it would say SPAY AND NEUTER YOUR PETS!
3. I have a hard time WITH ANY KIND OF CHANGE.
4. I really enjoy BEING HOME WITH MY CATS.
And for The A-Z Blogging Challenge, we have an x-mas tree, I didn’t want to take the Christ out of Christmas, but I couldn’t think of any other X to crochet.

My answers:
1. In the Spring. I look forward to pussy willows, but sadly this year we had warm days in February so when we went to pick them in March, they were yellow with pollen already. Here are some from previous years.
2. I would love to have a Halloween party. Every year I want to have one, but never do-maybe this year I will.
3.Few know this about me, but I have been taking Effexor for anxiety for 10 years. I think it is a miracle drug that has helped me immensely. I probably wouldn’t ever leave the house if I didn’t have it. I actually have told many people, especially those that I think would benefit from it or something similar.
4. No one should live without a cat(s), they make life wonderful.

Please include Annie’s sweet cat, Maggie in your prayers as she is having some health problems which you can read more about on their blog.

1. The oldest item in my home is __________________________.

2. The oldest item in my refrigerator is _____________________.

4. My favourite family tradition is                                .

  1. The oldest item in my home is this platter that belonged to my paternal grandmother. I am guessing it is from the 1930’s.
  2. The oldest item in my refrigerator is mustard, it expired in March 2015-oops! I actually replaced it Thursday along with the ketchup that also expired in 2015.
  3. My family heritage is Polish on my Mom’s side and French Canadian on my Dad’s side.
  4. My favourite family tradition is the Christmas Eve meal that we put on every year. My maternal grandfather’s family always celebrated with a Polish Wigilia with a several course meatless dinner. I continued that tradition, but it was a lot of work making the foods and no one was thrilled with them so now we do a buffet, but the important part is being together.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!!

1. I hope _______________________ gets renewed for another season.

2. My first crush was __________________________.

3.                             usually makes me                          .

4. If I were a super-hero, I would be                                       .
My answers:
1. I hope American Housewife gets renewed for another season.
2. My first crush was Barney Rubble ( Flintstones). My Mom used to call my great aunt Alice and have her pretend to be Barney, I thought I was really talking to Barney. I remember asking him to leave Betty so he could come visit me. I was probably 4 years old at the time and apparently a bit of a hussy.
  Phoebe is posing with my stuffed Barney that I won at a carnival years ago. We even named a cat Barney,  my hubby remembered me telling him I used to love Barney Rubble-plus we found her in the barn.
  Barney looked a lot like Brody
3. Leaving my home unattended usually makes me nervous which is why I always have Grammie stay with cats if we are going to be out longer than 30 minutes. I am not afraid of someone stealing my belongings, but I fear that if someone broke in, the cats would get out and get run over in the street.
4. If I were a super-hero, I would be Cat Woman, of course.
