The Queen's Meme #37 ~ Under The Covers

The Queen’s Meme #37

I am still on hiatus this week on my other blogs but raised my head out of the bed long enough to write this meme for you. The prisoners in the dungeon are getting antsy for a chance to escape. And since the awesome company I had this weekend helped me feel a tad bit better, I thought I'd give them a shot at freedom. This should keep you busy for awhile.
Benevolence is my middle name.

Under The Covers Meme

Snuggled, and I'm not telling what else.

What are you talking about Mime?

3. What prompts you to pull the covers over your head and hide from the world?

Only when I have had a really bad day.

4. Firm or soft?

I am the original princess and the pea, so my bed has to be just right or else I can't sleep. My dial a number is 70

I am hot, so give me the fan and air.

Why yes, I can share a lovely dream with you. I dreamed that my sister and I were having Christmas with my deceased in laws, except we were their children. My FIL was German and he was helping us make Christmas ornaments for the tree. It was really sweet.

18. Under the covers or outside the covers

Outside the covers.

Interesting post. Since I have a hard time sleeping, I generally try not to think about it. I try to sleep late, but the pup won't let me. He's all about peeing, barking, eating and going for a walk as soon as the sun comes up. If I ignore him, he removes the covers and whines. Ugh.

Jamie said...

I've got a meow meow alarm clock as well. Fun answers.

Anonymous said...

Good answers....i have the same alarm clocks...

Finding Pam said...

Rudee, that is what my dogs and cats do. They don't like to sleep late.

I am glad that Leo is doing so well, especially after the yarn fiasco!

Jamie, Yes, indeed they are good alarm clocks! LOL!

Shannon H. said...

You should see the mosquitoes in Wisconsin!

Dawn (Twisted Sister) said...

With silk you just slide out of the bed...

ha ha.. that's happened to me!

Great answers. I like your alarm clock!

Finding Pam said...

Shannon, I never would have thought that you had mosquitos up north.

We lived in Ohio when my hubs was in the service and there were no bugs. I loved it.

Dawn, hahaha! You slide off too? How are you doing? I have started closing the door to keep the cats out of our bedroom. Just too much cat hair and I can't deal with it all over my house.

I do miss sleeping with my furry cat because she cuddles so good, but Hubs cat just walks all over us at night. I hate to wake up to him kneeding my side. Arg!

Thank you Pam for sharing and all your encouraging comments to me as well. Blessings to you.
