First I have a couple NSV to share.
      1. I did 5 whole push-ups!! I wasn't even able to do 1 before! then I proceeded to do 61 on my knees! I'm so excited! I am getting myself some muscles!!
      2. My husband told me my calves look smaller. I have always had rather large calves. So much so that I haven't worn a pair of shorts willingly since high-school. My legs have always been a sore subject. To have my hubby notice they are smaller is an awesome NSV!

BYOC (Bring Your Own Crazy)
A little ditty where we answer a few questions on Friday to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break.  Copy and paste to your own blog if you so desire!  Enjoy! Thank you Draz!

1.  Sun or rain?  Roses or tulips?  Romantic movie or comedy?
     I like the kind of rain where the sun is out but the sky kinda has that greenish hint to it. Very something dread kind of feeling to it. Like it's a sign of things to come. ooooooo (I'm superstitious, what can I say)
     I think I like tulips more, If you had asked me a couple of years ago I would have said roses. This area though has tulips planted everywhere in the spring and they are beautiful! My favorite flower though is brightly colored Gerber Daisy's! Love those flowers!
Can I claim romantic comedies? I love romantic comedies!
2.  Drazil has been sick lately and haven't eaten in two days - except for ice cream...which leads me to ask - what's your favorite ice cream flavor?
     I would have to say my homemade version of rocky road made with vanilla almond ice cream instead of chocolate...yummy!!! and o so bad for you!

3.  Are you a door locker - in your house and car?
     I lock both! my husband would leave the house wide open and then lock his car in the drive way. I think my paranoia comes from living in so many different places over the years. He never had that.

4.  In the spirit of my being sick and wanting to die - tell me your "go to remedies" for when you are sick?
     I use the basic. Ginger ale with an upset stomach, or I steep some ginger root tea. Saltines and of course over the counter meds for whatever ails me.

5.  Repeat question:  Summarize your week in blog land and in real life.
     In blog land I was inspired by so many of you! It's amazing how everyone rallies together when a fellow blogger is in need or just having a bad day.

     In real life not much is going on right now. Allot of work, working out and catching up on some reading between semesters. Update on the crazy cat. I had to take him to the vet last night because he had licked open his surgery site. He is now a cone kitty and is hating life. They gave him a steroid shot cause the site was so inflamed. He will be fine though. He has to wear the thing till Sunday.


  1. I have found a calf sister :) So to have smaller ones is a super NSV !! In fact, I am banded for BOOTS !! Way to go ... have a great weekend !

  2. My cat Ruby, had to be a cone kitty too but not from licking her wound, but from being too active after her surgery! My vet actually suggested that we just keep her in her cat carrier to keep her quiet! Ummm...how are you suppose to keep a kitten quiet? LOL.

  3. Whooohooo!! Fabulous NSV and push ups! I hate push ups so the fact that you are doing them is inspiring to me! Go!

  4. Poor kitty. I, too, have always had bigger calves. Here's to shrinking 'em together!

  5. I can't do regular push-ups- my arms are too weak. But you have now inspired me to try.

  6. I'm so impressed with regular push-ups! I've just been doing standing against the wall ones and THOSE hurt! so awesome job!

    and *giggles* at cone kitty

  7. Massive props for your new found ability to do some pushups!! I can only do them on my knees and not very many. :)

  8. Great job on the push ups! My goal is to be able to do 1 pull up. I've never been able to do even 1 in my whole life.

    I hear you on the calves. Great NSV!
