From This Side of the Pond. Head on over, get the questions, and then answer them on your own blog (or in the comments if you don't have a blog). Then go over to Joyce's to link up! Here are this week's questions:
1. February can be a little bit tricky given the weather and the winter and the whatnot. I read a list (here) of things you can do to make your February brighter which included-start planning your next trip, take more baths, make your own chocolate covered strawberries, and exercise in preparation for swimsuit season. Anything on the list you might try? Which suggestion on the list appeals to you most? Tell us something not on the list that helps make your February brighter.
Starting to plan for our next trip sounds good. Hopefully a two day getaway near the end of March. We'd love to go back to the York Harbor Inn (photos below) again. We will see.
2. Tell us about something you've seen or done recently that you'd say was 'super'?
I am completely drawing a blank on this question. Maybe the spectacular full moon at the end of January?
3. Best thing you ate in a 'bowl' last week?
Hmmm ...I'd have to say it was a serving of gingerbread pudding cake topped with French vanilla ice cream. I'm hoping to share the recipe for the pudding cake soon ... it was made in a slow cooker and quite delicious.
4. Something you're 'cheering' for right now?
Not quite sure how to take this. "Cheering for" as in happy to see -- a good price on chicken breasts this week coming up, decent prices on avocados. "Cheering for " as in encouraging a team -- maybe the thought that spring will eventually come. You know, "Come on, Spring! Let's go, Spring!" It's unrealistic to expect it here and now, but there's nothing wrong with encouraging it on a bit, I guess.
5. The Winter Olympics begin Friday, February 9th in Pyeong Chang, South Korea. On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being all in and 1 being no interest whatsoever) how interested are you in the games? Which event do you most want to see (you'll find a list here).
I am interested but not obsessed. I would rate my interest a 6 or 7. If I have an opportunity to watch any of the events, I would be most interested in figure skating, downhill skiing, and ski jumping. Quite a few of the athletes have ties to New Hampshire so I will be interested in how they do.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
By the time this is posted, we'll likely be in the middle of a big snowstorm. The apple tree will likely look like it does in the photo below. Happy Wednesday, all!
