Wednesday Hodgepodge


1. April showers bring May flowers or so the saying goes. Are you blooming where you're planted as we begin the month of May?

Our Easter flowers are blooming nicely, but trees are still very bare.

Speaking figuatively, yes, I'm happily blooming where I'm planted.

2. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being no big deal, and 10 being full scale panic, rank your fear of spiders.

I'm not exactly sure how to rate this because it depends on the size of the spider and whether or not someone else is available to get rid of it for me.

Tiny spiders are probably a two, big hairy ones a nine. I have been known to trap them under a bowl until they can be disposed of by someone else.

3. May is National Salad Month (who knew???)...besides lettuce, what are two must-have ingredients in your favorite salad?

Avocados and sour cream.

4. Joyce mentioned on her blog last week that her  Daughter1 will be moving to Washington State after she is married. Of the following sites in the Northwest, which would you most like to see in person-Crater Lake (Oregon), Seattle (Washington), Vancouver (British Columbia), San Juan Islands (Washington),  Mt. Rainer (Washington) Oregon Coast (Oregon), Mt. St. Helens (Washington), or Olympic National Park (Washington)

I would love to see all of them, but since we can choose only one I'll go with Crater Lake.

5. This coming weekend marks the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby...when did you last race (literally or figuratively) to cross a finish line?

Right now it feels as if we were racing towards a finish line. Trying to wrap up another year of school.

6. What is something little you love?

I love the little notes that appear on my pillow and other places where the children are sure I will find them.  I have a big box full of them, because I can never bear to think of throwing them away.

7. Would you say you are more of a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learner? Elaborate.

I think I'm more visual, if someone shows me how something needs to be done I can comprehend, if I can read instructions I have no problems either, but if I have to simply listen to someone give instructions I feel my eyes start glazing over and I have a hard time following.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.


Caught Buddy trying to find himself a little bedtime snack.

  1. That last picture made me laugh! Was he successful? I have a box full of notes, cards, letters my girls have written to me over the years. I wouldn't trade them for anything.

    1. No, he wasn't successful, at least not on his own. He was happy with the milk I gave him.

  2. The letters sound so sweet! My youngest wrote a message for me on my bathroom mirror recently. So cute. =)
    Love the little bedtime snacker picture!

    1. My first response to seeing him there was quickly grabbing the camera.

  4. The little notes from the children... they are precious.

    And the salad with avocados and sour cream sounds delicious.

    1. I really like it, adding bacon and pineapple tidbits makes it even better.

  6. My grandson turned one and loves to climb into any cupboard he can get into. Don't think he would fit in the fridge.

    1. Such a fun age, though sometimes their climbing can get too interesting. :)

  8. That last little picture reminds me of my Sophie...who always...no matter what time of day it is....needs a snack. =) Too cute! I have a little journal that my oldest daughter and I kept throughout her growing up years. I would write a note to her and leave it on her pillow...and then she would write a note back to me and leave it on mine! Such a treasure this little book is to both of us now that she is grown and getting married.
    Loved this post. It made me smile.
    Hugs,
    Valerie

  10. LOL that photo!! ;D Something my nephew would totally do. Although he'll most likely be hunting for candy. I also love avocado's in my salad, forgot to mention that. :)

    1. Candy seems like a good motivator to try climbing into a refrigerator.

  11. Glad you are blooming where you are planted. Love the little notes....my son use to do that when he was young. Cute picture of Buddy!

  12. I don't blame you not wanting to part with those sweet little notes! And that little guy reminds me of the time our (then young) son climbed up the front of the dresser and it came over on him! Scary!

    1. Oh yikes! I hope he didn't get hurt with that dresser falling on him! That is scary.

  13. Love, love, love the picture!

  14. Love the picture of Buddy, you must keep the good stuff on the top shelf!

  15. You and I are in agreement with Question #4. On the salad question I don't know about sour cream and avacado. Buddy seems like a handful. Good luck!

  16. My eyes glaze over too when someone tries to explain something to me. I gotta just get in there and do it myself. I'd die if I ever saw a big HAIRY spider running free! Ohhh, how sweet they leave you notes. I would definitely save them too. Cute picture. :-)

    1. Don't you just hate that glazed over feeling?! Hairy spiders give me the creeps!

  17. I still have many of the notes my children wrote when they were younger. My two youngest, ages 10 (a son) and 17 (a daughter), still make me homemade cards for my birthday and Mother's Day. I cherish them.

  18. We have a little boy just a few months younger than Buddy, and he likes to check out the fridge, too. One morning he helped himself to a baggie of carrot sticks for a pre-breakfast snack!

    1. At least he had a healthy snack. Not sure I would enjoy carrot sticks first thing in the morning. :)
