Welcome to Sunday Stealing. This feature originated and published on WTIT: The Blog. Here we will steal all types of questions from every corner of the blogosphere. Our promise to you is that we will work hard to find the most interesting and intelligent questions.

Winter questions stolen from
How do you get past the gray skies during winter?
I don't "get
past" them. I enjoy them!
I have never
lived in snow; I've only visited snow. To visit snow is very nice, because
I can sit inside and look at it and don't have to deal with it. I suspect
that if I actually lived in a place where snow was normal, I would very quickly
lose the "romance" of it!
Well, as above,
we don't live where there is real "winter." Winter is a bit colder than
summer, but there is nothing that I specifically do in winter that I don't do
all the rest of the year, except dress warmer.
wind, no heavy rain, but a nice steady rain that I can sit and look at, but not
heavy enough that I want to cover up when I go out in it. (I don't ever
use an umbrella) Heavy enough that I can watch it from the chair where I
am reading a book.
food? I guess I make soup more in winter but I can't think of anything
specifically "winter" unless it's the Christmas turkey
How many winter holidays are there? I think of Thanksgiving as a "fall" holiday and Valentine's day as a "spring" holiday, so that leaves only Christmas and Martin Luther King's birthday, and I guess of those two, I prefer Christmas.
Of course there
are also some special January holidays like National Rubber Duckie day (Jan 13),
Penguin Awareness Day (Jan 20), Measure Your Feet Day (Jan 23), Bubble Wrap
Appreciation Day (Jan 27) and National Kazoo Day (Jan 28).
mushroom. But I really pretty much like most toppings, except maybe bell
peppers. I even like Hawaiian pizza.
A huge credit
card holder that was not what I expected, but it has so many slots for cards, I
also use it as a wallet, for paper money. There is also a pkg of tissues,
some Tums, some cough drops, a brush. a napkin from Nice (France) that Jeri
bought me when I needed a cloth to wipe the sweat off my face, and my cell
butter by the spoonful, ice cream, cookies, chips
South Africa or Kenya. But that ain't gonna happen now. The body (and the
husband) says no.
The bark of a yappy dog.
Just a bunch of books.
Probably the year Walt bought tickets to Book of Mormon for the two of
us. There were also a few years over my lifetime (starting at age 10) when
I received a new camera for Christmas. And then there was the year Jeri
made a dozen characters from Gilbert & Sullivan shows out of eggs. We still have
most of them, I believe. (hmmm....I wonder where they are...?)
