Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. 'In like a lion, out like a lamb'...does the first part of this saying describing March weather ring true  where you live?

March came in like a lion, but quickly turned to a lamb, so it will be interesting to see how the rest of the month will be.

Our waterfall had been frozen solid, but right now it's seventy degrees warmer than it was a week ago. Going from -22º to 50º in such a short time is quite a change, and it's feeling too warm!

With all the melting snow and ice the creek is flooding. It's fun to watch as long as it doesn't get too close to the house.
2. March 4th is National Grammar Day. What common grammatical error bothers you the most? 

Confusing there, their, and they're bugs me a lot.
3. William Arthur Ward says- 'The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.' Which one are you?

A combination of the three. I tend to adjust the sails, while complaining about the wind, and expecting it to change.
4. What's something you need to 'march forth and conquer' this month?

Spring cleaning the house.

5. An ongoing debate around you dust first, then vacuum or vacuum first, then dust? Of the two routine household chores, which do you dislike the least? How's that for wording? 

Vacuum first, then dust. That way any dust kicked up by vacuuming gets to be taken care of. As a rule things don't get that dusty that I would be creating something that needs to be vacuumed after I dust.
6. According to, the ten most photographed sites in the U.S.A. are- Cinderella's Castle in Orlando, Southernmost House in Key West Florida, The Space Needle in Seattle, The Site of the Boston Massacre in Boston, The Bellagio Lake/fountains in Las Vegas, The Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC, Coit Tower in San Fransisco, The Art Institute of Chicago, Niagara Falls, and snagging the number one spot-The Guggenheim Museum in New York City

How many on this list have you photographed? Which on the list would you most like to visit and photograph?

None of them. We have visited Niagara Falls a number of times, but before we had a camera.

7. Fifty years ago Monday (March 2, 1965) The Sound of Music premiered at the Rivoli Theatre in NYC. Have you seen the film? Do you own a copy? On a scale of 1-10 how much do you love it (or not)? Ten=best movie ever. If you're a fan, what's your favorite scene or song from the movie? 

I have not seen The Sound of Music.
8. Insert your own random thought here.

March is always a fun month for us, with birthdays and a few special anniversaries of important events. Trying to make plans on how to celebrate each one properly.


  1. Enjoy your month of March celebrations. I am with you on the Spring Cleaning. Stopping in from Hodge Podge.

  2. It's fun to have something to look forward to in the month of March. I find I'm ready for spring, but we're still in winter so something on the calendar helps. We are going to a wedding this month, so am excited for that. The frozen waterfall is so pretty!

  3. I'm sure your frozen waterfall is gorgeous but you are probably ready to see it flowing again. Hopefully, spring will be here soon for all of us. Enjoy your March events.

  4. The frozen waterfall is so pretty. Enjoy your celebrations this month :)

  5. I don't own a copy of The Sound of Music, but I saw the movie and loved it. I think it would be a good movie for your family, Mary Ann.

    The grammatical errors that grate on me most are "where's it at" and people saying "I'm good" instead of "I'm well".

  6. I always think your version of vacuuming first then dusting was the correct way. Everywhere I have ever lived, the dust was always back the next day.
