Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. In honor of the date...when were you last sent on a 'fool's errand'?

We wanted to go pick up some meat at a butcher shop and for some reason they were out of everything we wanted.

2. Peter Rabbit, Bugs Bunny, The Energizer Bunny, The Easter Bunny, Rabbit (Pooh's friend), White Rabbit (of Wonderland fame), or the Trix Rabbit...which of these 'famous' rabbits can you best relate to right now?

The Energizer Bunny because it seems like I keep going and going. So much to do, so little time to do it.

3. When did you last find yourself scrambling to get something done? Explain.

Last Thursday I was scrambling to get everything done before I had to go meet LV at his workplace so we could go to an appointment we had.

4. Last time you were up at the literal crack of dawn? Why? Last time you stayed up all night? Why?

I am up every morning at the crack of dawn. Actually I'm up before then since I need to get breakfast for LV at 4:30 so he can eat before he leaves for work.

The last time I was up all night was last summer when LV and Sailor were on their way home from Missouri and I had wanted to stay up till they got here.

5. Crack a book, crack a bottle, crack a joke, crack an egg...which have you done most recently?

Crack an egg. Three of them, for breakfast about an hour ago.
6. What's your favorite part of a typical weekend? Tell us why that's so.

My favorite part is Sunday afternoons when we're all gathered in the living room, reading, playing games, or what ever else strikes our fancy.

7. What's something I'd find on a bookshelf in your home? Other than a book I mean!

Nothing. The only things on our bookshelves are books. Hundreds and hundreds of books.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Woodpeckers have always fascinated me, and when LV stumbled across this tree I couldn't help but be amazed at the determination this woodpecker had to have to create all these holes.

The pile of shavings at the base of the tree was impressive as well.


  1. Oh wow, that woodpecker was serious about that tree : ) We have a beautiful woodpecker in our back woods. I can actually hear him right now. Enjoy your day! Which starts early!

  2. Wow, that's one serious woodpecker. We have one on the tree right next to our home. He comes down and eats our bird feed each morning, so we get to watch him as we eat breakfast, which I love.

    Our answers are very similar. I, too, am the energizer bunny. I am not sure I really have all that energy, but it just seems to keep being made out of need.

  3. Good on you for doing the A-Z and the hodgepodge! And woodpeckers are amazing animals, although a bit destructive :)

  4. Your day does begin early! That is some job the woodpecker did. Sundays are my favorite too.

  5. A little woodpecker did that ?! Where is this? Sometimes you see odd things like that in Yosemite. :) Have a great week and Happy Easter.

  6. That is never fun when your going to buy something and they are out of it! How awesome to get up so early to make breakfast. Your a sweetheart! Wow I am very impressed with those woodpecker holes.

  9. Enjoyed reading! We don't have any bookshelves in our home. Our books are on a small stand and in our homeschool closet. For us to find books on a shelf, we have to visit our local library. ~smile~

  10. Thanks for the photo of the woodpeckers work. Living in Australia I have never seen the damage they do

  11. I love Sunday afternoons, too. Reading, napping (or both!), and being with family.

  12. Do your kids get up that early too? When LV leaves for work do you stay up or go lay back down? My husband is not very talkative when he gets up and barely has his eyes open by the time he leaves for work so he doesn't wake me up.


Thank you so much for taking time to comment. I love hearing your thoughts.
