More Thoughts Too Short for a Whole Blog Post

My main man Q-ee cat, chillin' on the window seat.

Quite some time ago we cut our satellite tv package way down and also signed up for Netflix (streaming).  I know lots of people complain about Netflix, but to me, for $8/month I find PLENTY to watch.  I mostly like to watch tv shows, but the Husband likes to watch movies.  There are a lot of older movies on Netflix, and in the last few days we have watched some interesting selections of his - Deathrace 2000, Convoy and Planet of the Apes.

I've lost about 7lbs so far from going to the gym and just trying to be more careful about what I eat.

My birthday is coming soon.  I like cake made from a mix (Duncan Hines or Pillsbury or whatever) with frosting from a can on top.  Nobody makes those kind of cakes anymore, but that's my favorite.  So that is what I shall have!

Our geocaching streak is now at 99 consecutive days of finding a geocache.

A bad thing about having a dog is that often times they don't let you sleep in on the weekend 'cause they either want to go out to do their business or they want breakfast, or both.  Oh, and they shed.

I've mentioned before that I hate summer, and I hate sitting or standing out in the hot sun.  Usually I seek out shade, however, my cousin built a pergola over his deck, and I was amazed that I was able to survive under it on a sunny day.  And it's really pretty.  A good compromise for sun-haters and sun-lovers.

Speaking of the hot sun, I already bought sunblock for this year.  I'm ready.

Did you see they are making "Hot Tamales" jellybeans this year?!??!  AWESOME!  (Hot Tamales are my favorite candy.)

I don't feel people in general are getting mad enough about the high gas prices.

The inspiration for the name of this blog actually came from Winnie the Pooh and *his* "Thoughtful Spot" - "Pooh's Thoughtful Spot is located halfway between Pooh's house and Piglet's original house. It is protected from the wind and is a good spot for "deciding what to do today".  

My all time favorite Winnie the Pooh quote is this:

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.  "Pooh?" he whispered.
"Yes, Piglet?"
"Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's hand. "I just wanted to be sure of you."
- A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

The end.

    I think pergolas are so beautiful..especially if they have vines on them. I would have one if I had a backyard..we live in a small city and we have no backyard. We hope to move in the next couple of years, I can't wait to have a yard!!!

I read each and every comment, and though I don't always get a chance to respond, I enjoy reading (and pondering) what you have to say. Thanks for your 2 cents! :-)
