We are happy you are here for another week of friendly sharing! As always, you can find the fill-ins here and at 15andmeowing.com each Thursday. On Fridays, we post the link for sharing. Please link your post as directed. You can answer in the comments, if you need to. Remember to visit other blogs. It takes a while, but it is very much appreciated. And, you will be so happy that you visited everyone.
I am taking everyone in one-by-one or two-by-two in for annual visits. So far, so good. Nothing new. George had his shots this week. Precautions were taken, so he had no reactions and sleep it all off. He is very sensitive. Next week, Grizelda and Chloe Jo will go for their annual shots. Chloe Jo will have her usual (frequent) evaluation, too.
I am happy to say that I was a First Commenter and First Right Guesser over at the Tuesday Teaser! A few weeks ago, I knew one, but held back my guess. When I later found out I was right, I regretted not guessing. This time, I quickly blurted it out, and thought maybe I should have waited. But, I was right, and first! So, trust your instinct! Thank you, Angel Sammy, Teddy, and your wonderful Mom, Pam. I have added the coveted badges to my Page.
After nine straight days of measurable snow, we finally have had a break. This week actually got in the 40s two days. We had a big meltdown and fog! But, there is still a month of Winter. It all comes out in the wash, as Granny used to say.
I look forward to everyone’s fill-in responses. These were fun! Have a wonderful weekend. Stay safe, warm, and healthy. I will see you soon!
1. My Chinese zodiac animal is the Pig. I actually studied Chinese Astrology many years ago. A very close friend was Japanese. I learned everything I could and shared it with family and friends. I still have a couple of very old books about it. Here are Pig facts, for those who are or love a Pig. Please remember, this is just for fun!
In the Japanese and Tibetan zodiac, the Pig is known as the Boar. It is the last of the twelve signs. Legend has it that when Buddha was preparing to leave the Earth, he called to order a great meeting. The Pig was the last one in attendance. Not as fast as other animals, he was deemed slow and lazy.
There are five elements in Chinese astrology: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. The most natural element for the Pig is water, commonly associated with emotions and intuition.
The artistic Pig strives for a life of beauty. She is governed by intelligence and centered by philosophy. These traits make The Pig a calm force and natural leader. She is also a romantic soul, known for her sensitivity and compassion. She is known as self-sacrificing and obliging, prudent and sensible. But, she can also be insecure, precise, even meticulous, finicky, and sometimes can be a bit naive.
Pigs do best with the other two signs of the 4th Trine of Chinese astrology. These signs are the Rabbit and the Goat. They are similar in traits and temperament.
2. My zodiac sign is Gemini, in western astrology. Born May 26th, I am the May twin. It is said that The Twins are mirror opposite. That has certainly been my experience.
3. Income tax season is over at our house. We have had the same accountant for over twenty years. Unfortunately, he is now semi-retired. I fear losing him to his full retirement. When that happens, we do plan to see someone who was trained by and worked for him.
4. In hindsight, I wish I had believed in myself and trusted my own intuition more than I did. Many times in my life, I went with what was right for others, out of loyalty. That loyalty was not ever returned. Ultimately, that was a very painful lesson. However, I do believe in karma.
~May Maneki-Neko bring you both happiness & fortune!~
