Monday Morning Meme

Time is what we want most, but... what we use worst. ~William Penn

1. What is your blogging style?

** Stir it up
** Can we talk?
** Observing the scene
** Stuff you want to know

Why is that? Tell us why you think your blogging style falls into one of the above categories. Are you okay with this style? If you could change your blogging style, what would you change it to?

I think I'm mostly "Can we talk"... I feel like I should be "Stuff you want to know", but honestly I just like to gab. IRL I'm kind of into stirring things up, to be honest, but not in my virtual one. What do you guys think? Should I stick with gabbing, or try to teach you something now and then?

2. Have you ever read a book because Oprah suggested it? If so, what was the title and was it what you expected? If not, why not?

Good heavens NO!! In fact, I go far, far out of my way to avoid anything she recommends, running as quickly as possible in the opposite direction. She likes far too somber and depressing books, not my forte at all. Blech.

3. Who do you turn to if your techie things die? Why this person? Are you very good at fixing techie things? Tell us your most successful, or most terrible, experience at fixing something techie.

My DH works in the industry, so he is always my tech support. I'm fairly technically saavy, but when I'm stuck he's my go-to guy. Off the top of my head, I can't recall an especially bad or tremendously good experience of my own trying to fix something to be honest. Sorry.

4. July is nearly over, any final words? (Sum up your month for us - the good and the bad).

Wasn't the best month, to be honest. I found THREE bees/yellow-jackets nests. The weather has been WAY to wet (in fact, it's raining even as I'm writing this. DD sliced her toes open. DH work 500 hour days (okay, I admit to exaggerating just a little on that one).

And the WORST thing? No one else though my milkweed moth pillars were cute!


Come on... they're CUTE. I want to hug them and love them and call them George.


You Are Not a Wimp

In fact, you are an incredibly tough person.

Your nerves do not get the better of you.

You don't back down from challenges or intimidating situations.

You love the thrill of conquer... so much so that it outweighs the fear of defeat.

I'm sure someone likes your milkweed bugs. After all, they do have mothers, right? *G*

Here I'm a bit put off by Mother Nature's offerings this morning. Yesterday I was nearly bitten by a nasty little snake and I'm still traumatized. Really, I think I am.

Um, the cure for snake trauma is chocolate, right?

Hope you have a wonderful Monday. And I like your Georges. Really, I do. I'll check our milkweed later and see if we have any George cousins. :)

I like your blogging style. It's conversational.

I have never read any of Oprah's book because of that...too depressing.

I'm the techie and only after I exhausted every means possible do I call in for professional help.

LOL at your milkweed moth pillars. They are cute if you say they are.

re quiz: I'm not a wimp.

Have a good MOnday.

Nice meme, Marianne!

I like the way your blogs are written. To me they are informative at times. We don't have milkweed in our yard and therefore no pillars! None! *g*
As for the techie issue, I'm a technogoober. I know NOTHING about the tech side of computers. My go-to person is Hubs, he's a professional so it works out. *G*

And the quiz: You're pretty tough in every day life. You don't back down easily.
However, you can be a wimp at times, especially in stressful situations.
You can be overwhelmed or intimidated or just plain scared when life gets rough.
While these are natural reactions, you may want to face your fears a little more.

Yeahhhhh, that's about right.

I hope you're having a good day!

I enjoy your blog posts - they are fun to read plus informative - you can't beat that combination.

I don't read books Oprah recommends - I know I wouldn't like them.
