The Meme

The rules:

1. Post the rules of the game at the beginning.

2. Each player answers the questions about themselves.

3. At the end of the post, the player then tags five people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read the player’s blog.

4. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.

Working and trying to get used to my new, and now greatly beloved, Sam the Wonder Cat. Hanging out with my friends, staying touch with Sis Linda and generally just putting one foot in front of the other as best I could.

What are five things on your to-do list for today?

1. Clean the kitty litter. ( a must)

2. Bake chocolate-chocolate chip cookies as a Father’s Day gift for a friend at work.

3. Clean house as much as I ever do (my Aunt Zella used to tell me that “dust is patient and WILL wait until you get around to it – words of wisdom for sure) and pack lunch for tomorrow.

4. Fold laundry from dryer and put freshly washed load (from this morning) into the dryer.
