Tell Me Thursday

1. Are you a morning person? A night owl? Do you pop up out of bed full of song and happiness? Do you just hit your stride after dark?
I am probably more of a morning person than a night person. Once I'm up and awake, I am ready to enjoy the day. I do normally spend about an hour still in bed in the morning checking up on my email, facebook, and blogs before I actually get up and start the day.

2. What is your favorite candy?
I have plenty of candies I like, and am not sure I could choose a favorite. Maybe a chocolate bar with almonds in it. Or possibly Kit Kats.

3. What is your biggest driving pet peeve?
People driving around with their fog lights on when it isn't foggy. Which is not only really annoying and dangerous to other drivers, but illegal as well. And yet, so many people do it. Since I drive a pretty low car, headlights are already super bright. When people have on the additional fog lights as well, that just doubles how bright their car is, which blinds other drivers whether you are driving behind them or passing them while driving the other direction.

4. How do you prepare yourself and your dogs for summer?
I don't really do much. I always, winter or summer, carry a gallon of water in the car along with a dog bowl. This year, I am getting the window crank (which a friend broke over the winter) fixed so my passenger window works again, so that the car can be kept much cooler.

I also make cooling collars for the dogs that can be soaked in water and will help keep the dogs cooler. And, I am thinking about making Koira a white lyrca-type vest that would help reflect the sun off of her black fur and could be soaked with water to help cool her.

5. Lets talk about grass in your dog yard. Do you have any? How much maintenance do you do?
My dog yard is just my normal yard. For the most part, it is made up of crab grass and weeds, and is super uneven, so doesn't get mowed all that short. But, I rent, so ripping up the whole yard, leveling it, and reseeding with nice grass just never makes it onto my To Do list. However, the crab grass means there aren't really any dead spots in the yard, other than a small area that is nearest to the door, which gets walked across the most.


  1. I like the idea of cooling collars! What a great idea if I had to work during the heat of the day!

    Have a great week!

  2. Hi Y'all,

    Stoppin' by to say "hello" and see how y'all are doing.

    Hope you're havin' a fantastic week!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  3. I'm with you on the fog lights. It is so annoying! The cooling collars are a great idea for the heat of summer. :)

  4. Have you tried the "Big Kat"?? Awesome. Love.

    Thanks for the cooling collars tip - I don't think I've seen them before! I think I've seen the cooling coats though.

  5. "Window crank"? Someone else has crank windows? Nice! (My car has the "power nothing" package, which was the cheapest way to get a stick shift.)
