You might be wondering, “So what in tarnation is this Monday Poll thing anyway!?”
Well, it isn’t exactly a poll. It’s more of a constantly evolving (devolving?), somewhat random list of questions I’ve been putting out to readers every Monday morning for the past eight (!) years. (It’s like a kickstart for your brain.) I’ve always enjoyed reading your answers in the comments, and I hope you enjoy reading mine.
- What’s the most creative thing you’ve done lately?
I’ve really started getting into hand lettering! El Hub got me these cool watercolor brush pens by Tombow (they have a fine point tip on one end a bigger, softer brush-y tip on the other), and I’ve been doodling with them every day and thinking up little phrases. I like that it uses a different creative part of my brain!
- The first beauty product I used today was _____.
Beauty-wise, the first thing I do every morning is wash my face, so it was Neogen Dermalogy Green Tea Real Fresh Foam Cleanser.
It’s been on my bathroom shelf since February, and I’m still into it (minor miracle)! It comes out of the bottle in a soft, soothing foam, and it leaves my skin feeling clean without stripping it bone dry. Two paws up.
- If you could wish for one thing to happen today, it would be ______.
To win the lottery, LOL! But en lieu of that happening…I’d happily settle for being able to cross everything off of my to-do list in a timely manner.
- Where do you find joy?
In my daughter’s smile and my tabby’s purrs. Every time I see or hear either one, happiness fills my heart.
- If you could add one hour to your day today, what would you do?
Believe it or not, this time I wouldn’t sleep! 🙂 Connor’s been sleeping for longer stretches at night of 4-5 hours, so I’m starting to function somewhat more normally…somewhat…during the daylight waking hours, so I’d take that extra hour to exercise.
I’ve missed getting my sweat on!
Your turn. 🙂 Just copy and paste the following questions into a comment with your answers. I look forward to reading ’em!

Mmm…peanut butter on toast. Quickie breakfast today because I’m taking Connor to the pediatrician for her two-month visit. It’s supposed to be a warm one here in Northern California. I hope it’s nice where you are, too. If you need a little sunshine, I’ll send it to ya.
