C. Lee McKenzie Meet Your Host

AtoZChallenge


The Hosts during this challenge are a varied as the stock at K-Mart. We come from all kinds of backgrounds, we're of different belief systems, we live in places all over the world.

Isn't it amazing that we can come together like this to complete such a unified and demanding task? Twenty-six days of blogging and commenting. Makes my brain tired. You've already met some of these Team Members; now it's my turn to reveal who I am.

My Work
When you were invited to ASK US ANYTHING on the AtoZChallenge Blog, the questions were as varied as the Hosts. Here are some of my answers to your questions.

Susan Scott  wanted to know what our best form of exercise was. That's so easy for me to answer. I hike or I do Yoga. For hiking all you need is good pair of shoe and water. I don't have to haul around a golf bag or find a partner to hit a ball to me across the net. It's just me and trail. Yoga doesn't even require shoes! I think you can categorize me as a minimalist.

Barbara in Caneyhead asked what we'd do if our computer bellied up during the Challenge. Don't even think that, Barbara! But if it did, I'd hock the cat and buy a new computer.

CA Heaven asked if we were skiers, and I answered I used to be. If I had to choose between skiing Breckenridge or Arapahoe Basin, I'd choose Breckenridge.

Betty asked a great question: How do we mange time during the A/Z Challenge. My answer was simple. Get up earlier . Go to bed later. Take breaks, stretch and walk. The family's on its own in April. 

Now I've planned a hike for this morning, so I'm out of here. Bye computer. Bye Internet. See you later.

You'd hock the cat - that's funny!
You're a welcome addition to the team, Lee.

Bill Nicholls said...

What is to ask. Get organised and post. By the time the A to Z starts I will have finished as all the posts have been sheduled for the days and a ready to go

:-( So sad. That adds a huge layer onto the writing/life in general burden.

cleemckenzie said...

Thanks, Alex. It has been fun and challenging so far.

Congrats on being organized!

"The Bloggers of K-Mart"-- that's us. Hopefully we're not a weird of dressers as the "Shoppers of Walmart".

I enjoy hiking when I have a good place to hike. Even a walk around my neighborhood can be nice now and then.

I'm willing to do a lot of things during A to Z except get up earlier. I will stay up later and skip nearly all TV.

The family's on its own in April. Must adopt that as my mantra. Only not just for April. The whole year. :D Thank you!
Best,

Enjoy your hike. Apparently today is Take a Walk in the Park Day, so . . . I enjoy walking too. Even more so with the dog. So why is it that everything always gets in the way and I end up skipping the walk? I swear, I can spend 45 minutes talking myself out of 15 minutes of exercise. What is wrong with me?! Do you have any motivation tips?

I have a topic for each letter, and most of them are sketched out. However, I expect to be doing last minute editing on a regular basis. This is my first A to Z challenge. I expect it'll either be a great exercise in focus or a big hot mess. I guess we'll know come May 1st.

Hi Lee! *waving*

betty said...

Thanks for answering my question, LOL, that's basically what I told hubby "don't plan to see me much in April." Enjoyed reading your answers :)

I like your minimalist attitude! I work out as I don't live in a hike-friendly area. Like you said, "real" life takes a back seat during April!

Dixie@dcrelief said...

Enjoyed reading about you, Lee.

Barbara In Caneyhead said...

Yeah, I've told my family straight up the past two years, don't expect much from me in April. To which they say, "When to we get all that much anyway?"
