Socks in winter, but I'm not consistent on that.

Is the topic of this tread pronounced Ether or Ither

I pronounce it as eether. That is an awesome question!

Do you pronounce a thin ribbon of running water as creek or a crick?

Bar

awning or sliding window

I ask this because my top window slid down overnight, and I can't close it. Headed to a 5K run, so I'll worry about it later. But annoying that my heat is running.

sliding window

I am guessing you were participating in the 5k run, so good for you!  Did you used to run when you were a smoker?  I bet it is much easier as a non-smoker to run a 5k.  Or did you sign up for a 5k as a celebration?  Aren’t you getting close to your 1 year quit anniversary?

lawn or xeriscape

Rice. I had to look xeriscape up.

It's definitely better since I stopped smoking. 1 year in January. For HS baseball we had to join the cross-country runners club in the winter. So, I always ran, sometimes with a cigarette in my mouth. Stopped when I broke my heel. Started again a few years ago. Certainly not as well. I finished about 1,600th of 1,800 men. Though most participants were younger.

Bags: paper or plastic

Paper, but very few stores offer paper, so we end up with plastic. We do take our own bags to the grocery store.


Good for you for several accomplishments, not smoking, 5k, placing better than 200 other men! You have a lot to celebrate!  Did you get the window fixed?

Plants or flowers

Flowers

I left a note for our handyman, and he was able to close the window. He said the spindles were broken. I need to check with the building manager tomorrow on how that gets fixed. The windows are designed to not open more than 6 inches, so people don't place things on the ledge. Makes sense as you don't want things falling but they've always been a pain to open and close.

Trees or bushes
