Cooper, Jack and Buffy’s mom here. Since I pen the musings of my incorrigible furry friends I’m participating in a meet the blogger hop. The intent is for bloggers to get to know something about each other, especially those of us who are ghost writers for our pets! 😉
I’ve answered seven of the twenty questions we could choose from. Since I’m a visual artist, I’ve included photos to go with each one (I just can’t help myself, I speak in images).
Here we go!
What do you wish you were more skilled at?
I would like to be a better singer. Although I did musical comedy when I was in my teens and twenties, I’ve always been insecure about my voice. My husband and I are talking about putting together an act when he retires … comedy and music – him on guitar and he and I both singing. It would be great fun, and a wonderful excuse to get over that insecurity.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I love to ride with my husband on his motorcycle. The one we ride (he has MANY) is a Honda Sabre Shadow 1100. We call him Trusty Steed. We ride all over the gorgeous curving hills and along the coast of our area in So Cal. We also ride in the gorgeous mountains of Idaho when we head there for the month of July. We even took a honeymoon tour through Idaho, Washington and Montana in 2011. I LOVE it.
What can your body do for you that makes you most proud?
My body healed marvelously after a full hip replacement February 8, 2013. I rode the motorcycle only five weeks after surgery and I joined a gym (Curves) in mid August to continue to strengthen my muscles and increase my flexibility. It is awesome to go on walks with Tim and Cooper now!
What’s one thing you could do to be more kind to yourself?
Stop worrying about my weight!!!!! I had an eating disorder for much of my life. I’ve learned how to deal with it in a healthy way, but I still have a little nagging voice that says I should be about seven less pounds…. 😉
Other than blogging, what are three things you do that bring you joy?
I LOVE eating out with my hubby!
I LOVE creating digital art.
I LOVE spending time on my hubby’s ranch in McCall, Idaho. So does Cooper!
If you could change one thing about your life what would it be?
My husband would retire tomorrow! Then we could move to his ranch in Idaho and spend the summers there and the winters traveling down to warmer climes in our motor home.
What drives you nuts about your pets? What melts your heart?
Cooper is very possessive of us (Tim and me) and he whines when he thinks Jack or Buffy are getting attention or an advantage that he’s not getting. He even makes a fuss when Tim and I kiss or hug. We are going to use positive reinforcement training to help him let go of this behaviour (I’m learning all about it from my Pet Bloggers Gift Exchange buddy Laurie Luck at The Smart Dog Blog.)
My heart melts when my timid BuffyCat curls up in my arms and relaxes enough to sleep deeply. It doesn’t happen as often as it used to since she is wary of Cooper. But I make sure and put aside some time when I keep Cooper on the other side of the bedroom door so we can have our own special bonding time.
There you have it… a little something about me. I have another blog that some of you might not know about. It’s called Meghan aka Firebonnet and it’s at firebonnet.com. I do more art related stuff on that blog, but it is also down to earth.
I’m looking forward to reading about lots of other bloggers in this getting to know you blog hop.
