Five Question Friday: January 6, 2012

Hello friends! I hope your Friday is getting off to a good start. Here we are at the first 5QF of the new year! Enjoy reading, and then if you like, answer the questions in the comment area of this post. Or better yet, click on the badge which will take you to the site where I pick up the questions, copy and post to your blog and start a discussion there. If there is a question you don’t particularly like, strike it out and make up your own. (I’ve done that a few times as many of you know.) So let’s get started! 🙂

1. What is the weather like where you are and do you like it?

Love the photo ops, not so crazy about the cold!

2. When you’re sick what do you seek comfort from?

In my case, the question is ‘who’ do I seek comfort from? My husband! He is the best ‘nurse’ in the world!!! (Sorry Mom, but it’s true. What can I say?)  Richard’s mother was a nurse and she passed on her nursing expertise to her son. I am the beneficiary! Thank you Mrs. Rogow. 🙂 Richard hovers over me, making sure I have enough blankets, brings me advil or tylenol for fevers and aches, makes sure there is plenty of water by my bedside, checks on me regularly to make sure I have everything needed to stay as comfortable as possible. No matter how hard I try, I have been unable to match his skills when he is sick.

3. What do you need to do before the end of the month?

Oh my. I will let you know after I open up my course syllabuses later today. My “to do” list will be centered around course work for the next ten weeks. (Week 9 will have the added anticipation of my youngest daughter’s due date for her first child! Yes, I’m heading to Chicago for that regardless of end-of-the-quarter deadlines!)

4. Have you ever served on a jury?

As a matter of fact, yes I have. I’ve been called for jury duty three times, and a fourth time I requested out due to religious holidays. Personally I consider jury duty a civic responsibility  willingly serve when called. The only exception thus far was due to a religious holiday observance (I think it was Passover; can’t remember for sure.)

5. If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?

This is an easy one. Since I was a little girl I thought it would be great fun to be an otter.

Why? Because of all the animals I saw that day years ago at the zoo, the otters seemed to be the ones who were having the most fun. If you google otters, you will see that they make everything they do into a game or play activity. And they love the water, as do I! In my youth I was a life guard in several different places, and it just makes sense that if I come back as an animal, it has to be a animal that loves to play in the water! What fun!

  1. Refreshing low 40’s in early morning Miami. Won’t last long and unfortunately there are so few of such days. It is quite comical to see people here dressed like a blizzard has arrived.

    1. It will get up to 40’s here today. That will feel like a heat wave after the past week! We’ll be peeling off our coats and sweaters like we’re in Florida, or something. 😉

    1. You are the first person who has ever agreed with me on this! Yes, two sea otters frolicking in the water, sliding down embankments, and generally having a grand time with life!

    1. Loved the otter post! Thanks for stopping by. I’m glad you like the evergreens covered with snow. Believe me, I would be most happy to share if I could . . . if you would! 😉
