1. What’s your favorite way to exercise? (if you do or don’t. Exercising one’s mind is a valid answer IMHO, because that’s my favorite).
To exercise my body, I walk daily. Recently the duration has decreased a bit as we were busy shifting from one city to another and there was a lot of work to do. And working, unfortunately, doesn’t give you steps.
For my mind, I do puzzles, play card games and do a ton of reading and writing when I blog. I think this should keep my brain active and healthy.
2. What’s more important to you – family or friends?
Both are equally important. Family, especially your intrinsic family is obviously very important. We would do anything for them. But we need friends too as they are the family we choose for ourselves.
3. (a segue of sorts from last week’s SYW)..Have you ever voted for someone (in whatever venue – politics, contests, school elections) based solely on how they looked?
Looks aren’t important if you’re electing someone for a public office. It’s the character and the ability that counts. So the answer to this question is no!
4. (silly one) How could carousels be spiced up so they are more exciting?
Carousels are already very exciting so in my opinion, there is no need to add anything extra there.
GRATITUDE SECTION (as always optional)
Please feel free to share something you’ve enjoyed about this September.
September saw us relocating to another city. Thankfully the move went smoothly and we are now settled well in our new home. The only thing that went wrong was that our Kitty couldn’t come with us and during our absence, he has decided to opt for a life as a free cat. We are still hoping that he decides to come home but there’s no sign yet. Perhaps with us, especially my grandson gone from his life, he was too lonely. 😿
Thank you Melanie for these interesting questions.
