  1. I lived 35 years in Los Angeles and I miss the ocean every day. Sea it is.

    1. Lucky you. I'm looking for an oceanside for my next house to be on.

  2. Give me the ocean every day. My husband is staring to look toward retirement and we are exploring our options for living next to the ocean. If I have to pick a second place, I'd go with the lake. There are plenty of beautiful (and big) lakes. I grew up near Lake Michigan and it is lovely.

    1. I'm looking for places near an ocean, too. The trouble with Southern beaches is that so many of them are in hurricane lanes.

  3. Not entering the contest but i love the ocean, and since we recently got a Jeep this handicap mama can once again go on the ocean beaches without trying to walk them, but I would pick a lake if I didn't live near enough to the ocean

    1. Sometimes, I will find a YouTube video of the surf and play it over and over, just to hear the sounds.

  4. I'll say lake since I grew up spending summers at a lake in VT. I really prefer the mountains, so river or lake. Just being near water is so soothing. Having said all that, I do love to walk on the beach and hunt for shells (but I can't sun any more).

    1. I have a big bowl of shells just outside my bedroom. It's one of the last things I see before going to sleep, and one of the first I see when the new day starts.

  5. Lake lake lake! we are all so different! I love being able to see across a lake. Lake Michigan is too much like an ocean. Little lakes are my favorite!

    1. I suspected you would say lake!

  6. Hmmm... Tough call. I love the fresh unsalted water of a lake- the calm, and hopefully mountains around it. But I love finding sea shells, the sound of the waves, seeing dolphins

    1. I've never seen any dolphins, but I do love to pick up shells.

  7. Continued... I think my very favorite would be a sweet water lagoon- which is a great combo of sea and lake but it wasn't an option. I'd say sea of its Greek. Lake if it's Swiss of western US...

    1. That you know enough about the world to have specific destinations to discuss is remarkable.

      Delete
  8. We live on a lake. Question answered. (Although I often have a yearning to hear seagulls. I may need to move to the North Shore of Lake Superior.)

#Chewy Influencer, March

Well, if you're a bit sensitive, you might want to turn away now.

One of my choices to try from Chewy was Fussie Cat dry food:


Since Madeleine is on a restricted diet, only Erin and Riley tried this.  And one, or both, of them developed --- how should I put this --- lower intestinal tract issues.  I don't know which it was (or, again, if it was both) because everyone has free access to every litter box.  Still, things were messy.

I believe this is the first product for the cats that I've had to truly negatively rate.  Sorry, Chewy.


As a Chewy Influencer, I am allowed to choose products to test --- for free --- each month.  There is no financial transaction of any kind.

Chewy Influencer, January, Part One

I have not been following the Chewy.com Influencer blogging rules, and for that I apologize.  I am supposed to post one entry for each product I try.  Here, then, is the first review of 2018.
I must start with a hearty thank you to my FedEx driver.  This was 40 pounds of litter packed along with a case of canned cat food.  That box was very, very, very heavy.
I like this litter.  While it doesn't seem to control odor any better than other litters we have used in this house, it is easier to scoop.  (The "lumps" don't cling to the sides of the litter box.)  It is also helpful that, despite being difficult to move around, the litter comes in a 40 pound bag.  Having three cats, we go through a lot of litter here, and having this much around the house keeps me from having to go buy smaller boxes or bags every few days.
So, thumbs up to Frisco litter.  As part of the Influencer program, I request and receive products to review monthly.  No money is exchanged at all betwee…

Winning Girl

VERA!  You will be getting this week's countdown prize.  If you send me your address, that is.  😄  Send it to handeyecrafts*at*hotmail*dot*com, and your mailbox will soon have a visitor.
You should probably know that Vera's answer was "Napping Girl," which also fits me.  Since socks sort of started this whole thing, I tried to imagine what a pair with each of your answers might look.  
Camille's "Baking Girl" is a girl with oven mitts on pulling cupcakes out of an oven.
Kathy's "Nature Girl," as per her answer, would be a girl with an owl.
Grace's "Sipping Tea Girl" is a girl in a comfy chair by a window, teacup in hand.
Bridget's "Laughing Girl" is a girl with her head thrown back in sheer delight.
Twinnie's "Alpaca Castrating Girl" is. . .
um. . .
well. . .
There's a girl. . .
and, uh . . .

Boy, we all congratulate Vera on her big win, don't we?
