SUMMER q and a……

DSCF8392.jpg

Otis has some therapy tape on him.  He feels silly, he told me so.

*Have you been taped recently?

*This is our first day with the Air conditioning on……is yours on?

*Nothing is really begging to be my next knit project.   So I turn to socks….What do you turn to when you have to knit and don’t have a plan?

*Our library sent a notice saying they need people to check out books not ebooks to get funding.  I;m off to the library…maybe I’ll find knit inspiration there!  Have you heard about the need to check out books by you?

*Do you eat beef jerky?  The men here do, but I don’t.

*I hope I really hope the chipmunk that went under the truck didn’t get smooshed.  Have you had that feeling lately?

Last one:  When was the last time you ate at McDonalds?

  1. Wisconsin DPI (Department of Public Instruction) needs to revise the library funding formula to accommodate the changes in technology. I am on the library board and have done my library’s annual report a few times in the past. Physical checkouts are the only thing that is counted in considering funding.

    *This is our first day with the Air conditioning on……is yours on? Only When day so far this entire summer. It’s been lovely having the windows open in hearing the birds sing.

    *Nothing is really begging to be my next knit project. So I turn to socks….What do you turn to when you have to knit and don’t have a plan? Baby hats and blankets for the hospital.

    *Our library sent a notice saying they need people to check out books not ebooks to get funding. I;m off to the library…maybe I’ll find knit inspiration there! Have you heard about the need to check out books by you? I hadn’t. Perhaps a trip to the library is in order.

    *Do you eat beef jerky? Very rarely.

    *I hope I really hope the chipmunk that went under the truck didn’t get smooshed. Have you had that feeling lately? No, thank goodness!

    Blessings,

  3. I am currently taped due to a yoga injury. It is both annoying and painful.

    No AC yet this year. A summer without it would be a delight since I am always cold when it is on.

    I always have a pair of socks started so when nothing catches my attention I knit on them.

    Never heard that from my library.

    Beef Jerky? Never.

    No smooshed animals this year.

    I don’t think I ever ate at McDonalds.

  4. *Have you been taped recently?
    I get tape on my dodgy knee any time it starts hurting again. The last time was at the end of May.

    *This is our first day with the Air conditioning on……is yours on?
    We don’t need air con in Scotland :p

    *Nothing is really begging to be my next knit project. So I turn to socks….What do you turn to when you have to knit and don’t have a plan?
    Usually granny blankets for charity, but at the moment my to-make list is sooooo long I’m sorted for projects at least til the end of the year.

    *Our library sent a notice saying they need people to check out books not ebooks to get funding. I;m off to the library…maybe I’ll find knit inspiration there! Have you heard about the need to check out books by you?
    I’ve not heard of that before. But if that’s how libraries get funding then I’m definitely heading to mine this weekend.

    *Do you eat beef jerky?
    I’ve never tried it, it’s not really a thing over here.

    *I hope I really hope the chipmunk that went under the truck didn’t get smooshed. Have you had that feeling lately?
    Thankfully no!

    When was the last time you ate at McDonalds?
    I only ever want McDonalds when I’m hungover, so very rarely. I think the last time was a couple of months ago.

  5. Have you been taped recently? I haven’t been taped in 20 or so years.

    *This is our first day with the Air conditioning on……is yours on? We’ve had ours on for weeks. If it is above 72 outside our little house heats up to 80. Our neighborhood is old enough to have lost most of the big trees in the past few years.

    *What do you turn to when you have to knit and don’t have a plan? Socks. I always have vanilla socks on the needles for when my mind needs to be quiet.

    *Have you heard about the need to check out books by you? No, I usually checkout a mix of e books and real books, but if I wasn’t running there every week with the kids I would probably be all e books.

    *Do you eat beef jerky? Yes, but I prefer beef sticks.

    *Have you had that feeling lately? I almost ran over a kitten last week, so yeah, I can relate.

    Last one: When was the last time you ate at McDonalds? Last week. We eat it when we are on the road because it is one thing the kids will actually eat.

  6. 1. Not since I smushed my thumb in the car door a few years ago. I had to tape it for almost a year.
    2. Ha, ha…..we’ve had it on since May. It’s hot as hell here.
    3. Socks and dishcloths.
    4. No but The Mister keeps our library on its toes. He’s there almost daily.
    5. Ugh. No but I love watching Irish people eat it on You Tube. It’s hilarious.
    6. I swear I ran over a raccoon once but The Mister said there was no way since it didn’t make a big bump. It made me ill to think about it for months. I hate seeing roadkill. I get so upset.
    7. Last week. I get small fries and a diet coke. The Mister gets whatever he has a coupon for and Pup gets some nuggets. Then we head over to Petsmart. It’s a weekly ritual.

  7. *Have you been taped recently? I’ve never been taped and I find it fascinating how horses can!

    *This is our first day with the Air conditioning on……is yours on? We’ve been using it for weeks. But this week has been cooler so we just use the house fan.

    *What do you turn to when you have to knit and don’t have a plan? Another craft, LOL; I have to work on a birthday card today.

    *Have you heard about the need to check out books by you? No. My library encourages us to use this and that for books in e-form.

    *Do you eat beef jerky? Yep; I buy Pacific Gold that comes in snack-sized packs because my kids snack on them.

    *Have you had that feeling lately? I’ve slammed on my brakes to wait for ugly squirrels to make up their mind.

    Last one: When was the last time you ate at McDonalds? My husband’s two business trips ago. We eat out when the cat’s away.

  8. Otis, you look grand…do NOT feel silly!
    *No taping for me.
    *We don’t have central air at home, only window jobbies, and The Hubby hasn’t put any of them in yet. I’ve learned how to take a cool bath, then go to bed with a fan blowing just so…
    *Nothing from our library about checking out books, but I’ve been doing my part and have three books on order, and I’m trying desperately to finish the one I have in my lap now!
    *No beef jerky for me.
    *I love chipmunks, and the park that I frequent near my office has gobs of them. I enjoy watching them dive under stuff to hide!
    *McDonalds? Um…2008, when I drove my first feral cat to his new home. A filet-o-fish, then we went vegan shortly after that.

  9. Hi Kathy,

    Got taped this morning when I had blood work done.
    We’ve had the AC on (not constantly, but now and then for several weeks).
    Socks and dishcloths
    Haven’t heard that from any library
    No jerky for me
    The other day, a baby squirrel would NOT get out of the road and kept changing direction! Finally he fled (safely).
    At least 25+ years! Not since Colin was a toddler. I was never a fan of McDonalds anyway – preferred Burger King, but we haven’t eaten that kind of fast food in years.

    *Nothing is really begging to be my next knit project. So I turn to socks….What do you turn to when you have to knit and don’t have a plan? Mother Bears or shawls for charity

    *I hope I really hope the chipmunk that went under the truck didn’t get smooshed. Have you had that feeling lately? Oh yes!

    Last one: When was the last time you ate at McDonalds? This morning—-a large iced tea unsweetened and an english muffin

  11. *Have you been taped recently?
    No, not since I sprained my ankle a couple of years ago, and that was just Ace bandage.

    *This is our first day with the Air conditioning on……is yours on?
    Sadly, we had to put our A/C on a couple of days ago, and now it looks like it will be a long time until we can turn it off and go back to fresh air.

    *What do you turn to when you have to knit and don’t have a plan?
    Usually dishcloths or Operation Gratitude hats and scarves.

    *Have you heard about the need to check out books by you?
    No, but I don’t use the library. I buy books. I don’t like having to return books.

    *Do you eat beef jerky?
    I don’t eat any jerky.

    *I hope I really hope the chipmunk that went under the truck didn’t get smooshed. Have you had that feeling lately?
    My car always seems to get swooped at by birds, and I worry that I’ll hit them.

    Last one: When was the last time you ate at McDonalds?
    So long that I cannot even remember–many, many, MANY years.

  12. 1 – I was taped when I was doing PT after my knee surgery
    2 – No AC in my apartment so when temperatures warm, I close the windows and draw the curtains by 11AM
    3 – dishcloths are my go to knitting project.
    4 – No, I haven’t heard from the library about checking out books.
    5 – Turkey jerky is tasty, but I don’t eat much because of the sodium.
    7 – It’s been over a month since I ate at McDonalds.

  13. I’ve never been taped.
    We haven’t turned the ac on yet. Soon, maybe.
    Socks! Always socks!
    I haven’t heard from the library. It does make sense though.
    A bird hit the side of the car when my husband was driving the other day. Scared me but the bird seemed ok.
    We went to McDonald’s last week. This week we went to Chic-Fil-A. It was yummy:)

  14. 1 – I have been “taped” — but not recently. (It was when I had tendinitis in my ankle.)
    2 – Before I headed up north (where we don’t have AC), I turned on my AC at home for the first time (so it wouldn’t get too stuffy while we’re away).
    3 – When I’m not inspired by my next knitting project, I usually . . . take a knitting break!
    4 – Haven’t heard anything about needing to check out “actual” books at the library. But then, I mostly check out “actual” books, so maybe that’s why?
    5 – I’m (mostly) a vegetarian, so no jerky for me.
    6 – Nope. Haven’t had that “smooshed chipmunk” feeling lately.
    7 – I haven’t eaten at McDonald’s since my kids were in high school . . . so it’s been about 10 years now.
    🙂

  15. *Have you been taped recently?
    I can’t say I’ve ever been taped… unless you mean videotaped… then the last time was during my first tattoo. My best friend’s husband thought the faces I was making were funny.
    Oh wait… When I was about a year and a half old, I broke my collar bone… Mom said they couldn’t put me in a cast, so they taped me up. Does that count?
    *This is our first day with the Air conditioning on……is yours on?
    We’ve had ours on at night for a few weeks now. Our bedroom faces the street, so if we keep the windows open, we get woken by neighbours leaving for work early. (houses are close together and sound is amplified). If we keep the windows closed, the room gets too stuffy.
    We turned the downstairs one on for the first time Tuesday. I would probably have waited until today, but Dave can’t take the heat at all. I’m more tolerant.
    *Nothing is really begging to be my next knit project. So I turn to socks….What do you turn to when you have to knit and don’t have a plan?
    Socks. Definitely socks. Someone always needs a pair.
    *Our library sent a notice saying they need people to check out books not ebooks to get funding. I;m off to the library…maybe I’ll find knit inspiration there! Have you heard about the need to check out books by you?
    I have not, but that makes sense!
    *Do you eat beef jerky? The men here do, but I don’t.
    No. I don’t like to have to work that much for my food.
    *I hope I really hope the chipmunk that went under the truck didn’t get smooshed. Have you had that feeling lately?
    All the time. Sometimes I feel like I’m playing wildlife slalom!
    Last one: When was the last time you ate at McDonalds?
    Probably a couple months ago, but I’ve been craving it like crazy this week!!!
