I find there is beauty all around us, if we simply take the time to see it.
Yesterday Steven brought me a tiny bouquet of Coltsfoot flowers. There's something about those springtime bouquets presented by your little son that makes them one of the most beautiful things.
2. Our culture and beauty...your thoughts?
Personally, I think today's culture has a skewed view of beauty.
3. Age before beauty, beauty queen, beauty mark, beauty sleep...which beauty-ful phrase resonates with you today? Why?
None of them really resonate with me, though I could go for a good beauty sleep. I did a number of late, late nights last week, and I don't feel caught up with my sleep yet. One good night of sleep no longer catches me up like it used to when I was a teenager.
alligators, coyotes, black bears, birds (but pigeons in particular), sharks, bats, bed bugs, rats, rattlesnakes, and the black widow spider.
Which 'beast' on the list scares you the most? What is the liklihood of you having an actual encounter with that particular beast? Did a movie contribute to your fear of this creature? Have you ever had a real life encounter with any of the animals listed?
Birds don't scare me at all.
We have coyotes and black bears in our area, and see them occasionally. I wouldn't want to meet either one face to face, but I'm not terrified of them.
I am afraid of rattlesnakes. Unfortunately they are in our area as well, with a few of them seen much too close for comfort last summer.
Bats will have me shrieking and seeking cover. I utterly and completely despise them. I had more than one get into my bedroom when I was growing up. They've traumatized me for life.
5. Where were you when you last heard a bell ring? Was it alarming or musical?
A few days ago. It was neither alarming or musical. We have an old Amish school bell, and Steven likes ringing it occasionally.
6. What's your favorite carb? How's that for random?
Pasta, pasta, pasta with a side of plenty of bread. I haven't had either for a month and I miss them both dearly.
7. Let's wrap up another month of Hodgepodging and life with an acrostic. Recap your month using the word MARCH.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Our kitchen sees a lot of dessert made.
Yesterday this was created and served after supper. It looked delicious. It was declared delicious, but I can't vouch for it because somehow I restrained myself from having even the tiniest of tastes.
I'm trying to decide if it's worth living life dessert free?
