Monday Meme

Still worn out from moving a different office from one building to another at work.  That's done, so this week I'll be working extra hours for someone taking a vacay.  Four days of work, then five days off.  Really looking forward to that time off.  

Took this from here.

1.  When's the last time you borrowed (or a tool, or something else) from a neighbor?

I mostly just see my neighbor in passing, and we don't talk much.  We both moved in right around the same time, and used to talk more.  I'm not sure what happened, but we don't say much now beyond a wave and a quick, "Hello!"  most of the time.  The only thing I can really remember borrowing from him is a shovel.  The snow was higher than my chi's in the back yard, so I borrowed the shovel to clear a path for them to walk through and do their business.  

2.  What hobbies do you spend money on?  

I like to read, so books!  And magazines.  And the internet.  

3.  By which dead person would you least want to be haunted?  

Any serial killer.  How about you?

4.  Show and tell.  What comes to mind first when you see this picture?  Or tell a story if it reminds you of one.
When I went to save the picture, I noticed it was labeled "Caatinga."  Not being familiar with that word, I googled it and discovered Wikipedia describes it as, "...a type of vegetation, and an ecoregion characterized by this vegetation in the northeastern part of Brazil.  The name 'Caatinga' is a Tupi word meaning 'white forest' or 'white vegetation.' (Caa = forest, tinga = white)"
*****
Tomorrow is the last day to get in on Christmas in July.  So far, we have 10 participants, so there's still plenty of room for more!

10 showed me some love:

Sadly the peeps next door to us are moving after 20 odd years and we will be sad to see them go as they are like our friends. Have a marvellous Monday.
Best wishes Molly

It is good that you neighbor had the Potty Path Shovel when you needed it.

People in England are not friendly with their neighbours either, we kind of nod and say hello just to prove we are not mad axe murderers but that is all, LOL.
I don't think I would like to be haunted by Margaret Thatcher, I would wan't to kill her all over again.

I don't really talk to my neighbors but my husband does. They catch him and talk to him for ever! That is a pretty picture too. I would like to go visit Brazil!

Enjoy your time off!

We spend lots on books, too, and of course art supplies which we usually don't use. LOL.

The first thing I noticed when I saw that picture was the weird clouds. It made me think of a story about things coming from outer space!!
