Hodgepodge Wednesday ~

1. Since these questions are posting on the first day of April it seems only right to ask-when was the last time you did something foolish? If you can't answer that one, try this one-when was the last time someone fooled you?
About a month ago I ate a pint of ice cream for dinner. Don't get me wrong, I adore ice cream, in fact I believe it's part genetic, part comfort as it makes me think of my sweet Dad.
My Dad scooped what are now known as Papa scoops of ice cream...
in today's language it would be known as Super sized! 
Foolish because most of what's in my closet doesn't fit, largely due to my super sized love
of food and ice cream.. happy to report I'm down 9 to 10 pounds (depends on the day) since 
that memorable date with
 the cold stuff.

2. What's the last biography or non-fiction book you've read? Was it any good?
It was sometime back, Sidney Poitier's, The Measure of A Man.
I remember liking it...just reading about what made him the Man he is.

3. Garlic-friend or foe? What's your favorite dish made with garlic?
I can sometimes have "issues" with garlic, but oh I love it.  I think my favorite would
maybe be shrimp scampi !!

4. Several Spring flower festivals happen in the US during the month of April. Of those listed, which would you most like to see in person...The Skagit Tulip Festival in Skagit Washington, The Dogwood Arts Festival in Knoxville Tennessee, The North Carolina Azalea Festival in Wilmington North Carolina or the Daffodil Festival Weekend on Nantucket Island, Massachusetts?
That is a tough one. I love tulips!  I also love the Arts, I could do a day of that... My husband has a giant Azalea plant that is beautiful, so I would love to see lots of them at one time!  
Then, there is just something about Daffodils, they just make me smile.. 
Sorry I would have to pull this choice out of a hat....

5. How do you choose which blogs to read?  What is something that will make you stop and read every time? Something that makes you say, 'eh, think I'll skip this one and move on to the next'?
Good question...there is a common theme as to blogs I follow...Family... :-) Grand kids, faith, photography.
Those I follow are very down to earth people, who love their families, stand by their beliefs,
even when it may not be the politically correct thing to do...admire that so much
6. April is National Mathematics Education Month so tell us, when did you last use math?
That's what I have smart friends for...I'm not gonna kid ya!
7. In honor of the A-Z challenge kicking off on April 1...choose one word beginning with the letter A to describe your yesterday.
Amazing!!  My husband came home after being gone over a month..
Yes, it was amazing... 

8. Insert your own random thought here.
 Thinking about getting away this summer...I'm not sure to where or to do what... 
but pretty sure I'm in need of it.....


  1. Fun post!! The last foolish thing I did...ordered clothes on-line and none of them fit. Must take them back!

  2. What a cute foolish thing and can't believe you've lost that much weight so quickly. I'm impressed!

    And, I'm with you the blogs I'm attracted to.

    And, I'm sure you do deserve a get away and I'm betting you come up with the perfect place.

    Blessings abundant!

  3. Good answers - I did not know that Azalea's grow in Cali! Wow - that actually shocks me - don't ask me why though. :)

  4. Enjoyed your 'hodgepodge' post. It reminds me of rabbit-trail conversations we like to have over coffee. Hopping here and there with all manner of interesting tidbits.
