Question of the day (15th October).

Are you more of a hunter or a gatherer?

My answer:

It greatly depends on my needs, but I think I rather lean more towards gathering. Hunting is so often connected with scaring the one you’re hunting, so that they have to run away from you, I can’t say it’s my cup of tea, unless I really need to hunt someone or something. On the other hand, I like to collect gem stones, intriguing words, fascinating or lovely baby names, interesting books to read, beautiful music to listen to, so yeah, I think, if I had to choose, I’d rather describe myself as a gatherer.

You? 🙂

Question of the day.

Hi guys. 🙂

Here’s today’s question for us all. 🙂

Have you ever known anyone who has hunted for their own food?

My answer:

Yes, one of my uncles, who is a farmer, does it. As far as I know, hunting is his greatest passion.

How about you? 🙂

Question of the day.

Would you ever go hunting?

My answer:

Nope, never. Apart from the fact that it would be hardly doable for me 😀 and people would rather assume I’m crazy, as well as that it’s far from the sphere from my interests, I just don’t get people who like hunting AT ALL. I have an uncle who loves hunting, and I know many people through him who love it, but I just don’t get it. Some say it’s a very sophisticated, aristocratic and “niche” hobby. Well, maybe for them, OK, everyone is entitled to have their opinion, after all. But for me it’s just so… I’d say primitive. What’s so fun about killing other beings and calling it “a sophisticated, upper-class hobby”? I wouldn’t like to hurt anyone’s feelings, so, if you think hunting is OK, or you yourself like it or do it, it’s your thing and your conscience’s, I’m not judging you or saying I don’t like you because I don’t accept hunting, it’s just my opinion about the activity itself. I am also not one of those people who are vegetarians because they can’t stand a thought about poor animals being killed just to provide a meet for cruel humans – one of the purposes of many animals’ existence is to serve us as food – but it doesn’t mean we are entitled or justified to be cruel to them or make them suffer needlessly. It just seems scary to me that anyone can think about it as a form of entertainment.

What’s your opinion? Would you go hunting? 🙂

Music Monday Blog Party – Emmelie De Forest – Hunting High And Low.

Hey guys! 🙂

Time for another Music Monday Blog Party

at the Bee’s and celebrating our lives and achievements.

Today is still pretty hot here, we haven’t had any rains or storms during the weekend, but at least it’s a bit more windy so you don’t feel the heat so badly. Today I’m celebrating my life with Misha, who is very sleepy and lethargic. I’m sipping ice coffee which is very yummy and very cold. I love ice coffee. Zofijka has made a sponge cake with jelly and whipped cream and strawberries before school, she had school pretty late today, and we all had a piece of it, it is so yummy. I love when Zofijka bakes something. It always tastes so zoficiously.

As for the piece of music, I have two for you today. It’s because it’s often so hard for me to decide, which version of the song I like more. And there are two versions of the same song I really like and would like to show you both. And I’m curious which one do you like more. Also it is a cover, so I’m curious whether you prefer the classic, original version, or this girl’s.

Emmelie De Forest is half Danish, half Swedish, and the song I want to show you comes from her newest album which came out this year. She took part in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2013, representing Denmark with the song “Only Teardrops”. The song I want to show you is “Hunting High And Low” originally performed by A-ha. I am not crazy about the original version, it’s pretty popular, often on the radio, and such songs rarely are my favourites, but it has an interesting harmony so I can say I quite like it, but Emmelie’s version is just great.

The first one is from her Youtube channel and the next one is from the album.
