Do you usually have bananas in the house? How about peanut butter?

Yes and yes. Both my Hubby and I like bananas. I am the only one that likes peanut butter, though. Coincidentally, I just ate a half of a peanut butter and preserves sandwich. I don't have a banana left at the moment, but usually do. I made banana nut muffins last week. They do sell peanut butter in the large grocery store near me (in Czech Republic), but it's a little different than some in the US. I actually brought a jar of American pb with me.

If you had to be a bird, what kind would you want to be?

I'd have to be in a very energetic (hypo?) mood, but if I had to be a bird I'd be a robin. They're the first birds up singing in the morning, & the last to sing at night...their song is very melodic, as well. They work all the damned day hunting for their worms & other insects...no lazy hanging around the bird feeders for them! The way they hop & look around (kind of like being on sentry duty) is a real pleasure to watch, too. They don't seem take any crap from other birds, either. They kind of remind me of their ancient cousins, the raptors, in many ways. Robins are definitely pretty cool.

If you could live in any decade of the 20th or 21st centuries (or any other century, I guess), which would you choose? Why?

I guess 2010-2020 except not 2020. I had my dream job for a while in there, I became and aunt twice, I moved to a house by my mom which is much better for me, I did exposure therapy for PTSD and it was very hard but very helpful. There were really bad times in that decade but I think I find the most positive in that one.

Do you think they should cancel the 202(0)1 Olympics because of COVID?

I just looked up the start date and see it's the end of July. That's a tough call. I suppose if all of the athletes are tested, it shouldn't be that bad for them. However, then there's all of the usual spectators. That would be a shame to limit them, but probably would be a good idea until the world has been mostly vaccinated. I can say that it probably won't happen by the end of July, so perhaps a bit of delay would be wise.


What is something you've learned during the course of the pandemic?

Never don't hug someone when you can because you don' tknow when you will have another chance.

Is your April unseasonably warm?

Yes, it is warmer than should be. Beautiful, but we desperately need rain!

Have you been vaccinated? If not, will you be?

I get my 2nd shot Wednesday. I'm so excited because that means I can see my therapist in person the following Monday as he's already fully vaccinated.

Is there a scent you find particularly soothing?

I don't know why, but I always found the scent of patchoulli incense very soothing. While I haven't burned incense in a long time, the smell of patchoulli takes me back to the days when I meditated on a daily basis. I still have my old, brass Buddha in a box somewhere. Given my mood lately, a little meditation practice wouldn't hurt.

Do you have a meditation, prayer, or other practice that centers you? If so, describe it.

“This too shall pass.” It’s something I say to myself often. It helps remind me that all things are temporary. Eastern philosophy is so helpful. I miss candles and incense as mum is too fretful about fire to burn them. But my daughter gave me a salt lamp that has a particularly nice look and the scent warmer has lavender in it.

What is your favorite indoor activity.

Baking/cooking.

Are you particularly afraid of some insect or animal that most people aren't so much?
