Ferrets

Thursday, November 12, 2009

I am owned by 3 ferrets. They are simply the best pets in the world. Ferrets are funny and curious and adorable. Just watching them helps to relax me. The way they play with each other is truly a laugh riot. Ferrets do something called a war dance where they leap in the air and twist around and bounce & roll - it's so fun to watch them.

Just having a pet is one of the best things I have ever done in my life. I had always wanted a dog as a child, but I was allergic and my parents didn't let me get one. We did have a bird (Perry as in Perry Como), but you really couldn't play with him. I had a turtle and the usual goldfish, but again, you can't really interact with them. Ferrets, on the other hand, are great for interaction.

Chasing them around the house is fun, too. Also watching them steal the same things over & over again to hide in their hidey-holes, like socks or crocheted eggs.

I find myself much more relaxed ever since we adopted ferrets into our lives.

Who would you most like to meet?

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

I recently saw this question in a magazine and it started me thinking. I would really like to have met my parents when they were teenagers. I think it would be a real eye-opener. The ability to put myself in their shoes would have made my teen years much more bearable because I would have known what they went through. Does that make sense? What I mean is, I would like to have been friends with my parents as kids, but still be myself, too.

Now, if I had to choose who I would most like to meet now - that would be a really tough question. I would like to meet Ellen DeGeneres because she has such an upbeat attitude that I think I could really learn from her to be more positive.

I would like to meet the inventor of animatronics - it's so fascinating to me. I would have loved to have met Walt Disney if he were still alive - what a truly wonderful person he must have been to bring such joy to so many people.

It's a cool question to consider.

I think he must have exuded an attitude toward life that I would like to absorb.

Libraries

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

With the economy the way it is, isn't it wonderful that we have public libraries at our disposal. For no cost at all, you can go to the library and do many wonderful things. For example, you can see free movies - some of them are old ones that you never saw but have always heard about, while others are pretty current. You can take a class in tons of things, like cooking or computers or sports. You can attend a travelogue and learn about places far away & near.

Being unemployed at this time, I have really expanded my use of all my local libraries. I attended classes & workshops on writing resumes & how to ace an interview (if I ever get one, that is!). Plus, I have seen old Marx Brothers movies & movies like Frankenstein which I had never seen before!

I am also going to a Yoga, Tea & Chocolate program being held at a Historical Museum in conjunction with the library. I have never done any kind of yoga & am really excited about this one. They will show me chair yoga plus I will get to taste 2 different teas & 2 different chocolates. Plus, I will get to take home samples of the tea! All this is completely free! Wow!!

I am also attending 2 different cooking classes about Thanksgiving dinners where I will not only learn how to make delicious food...but I will also get to taste the food at the class!

Take advantage of all the library has to offer - you won't regret it. Plus, if you live close enough, you can get your daily walk in. That's what I do!!

Twittering

Monday, November 09, 2009

I feel like the computer world has advanced too fast for me to keep up. I am going to a Twitter workshop tonight just to learn about it. I have no idea how to Twitter.

For a long time, I was on the cutting edge of new products - I always wanted to have the newest thing. Now I find that I just don't need to do that anymore. I think I am trying in some ways to simplify my life.

That is a good thing. Too much clutter just makes for too much confusion.

That being said, I do still need to understand this new world of Tweeting and Ipods and stuff like that.

  knowledge is power, but that does not mean you have to indulge in every new thing that comes about. Knowing about it is enough.
