Wednesday Hodgepodge

Thank you to Joyce at From This Side Of The Pond for hosting Wednesday Hodgepodge.

1. William Shakespeare's birthday is celebrated on April 23rd...when did you last read Shakespeare? What's your favorite Shakespeare play?
Oh boy! It was a very long time ago. I believe high school.  My favorite is Romeo & Juliet.

2. What food(s) would you recommend a foreign visitor try when they visit your home country?
We had an exchange student from Germany stay with us for three weeks.  He was surprised that we ate dinner at home as much as we did.  He said the teachers warned them that American's are always on the go and don't eat as a family.  I asked him if he wanted to try something specific and he said, no. He was there to experience an every day American life.

3. What's a lie you often tell yourself?

4. What's something you're good at that might surprise us? Remember this is a family friendly blog!
I can crochet.  My Nanny taught me when I was about 12 years old. I have made countless blankets over the years.

5. Who is your favorite animal character from a book?
Biscuit. Who wouldn't love this cute adorable puppy?

6. April showers bring May you have a green thumb?
Yes indeed! This is one thing I am proud of.  I love my flower gardens and vegetable garden.

7. Speaking of rainy days...which one of the following activities would you most want to spend time doing on a rainy day-
When the mood strikes...

sort photos and create albums
bake cookies
read a good book
hold an all-day movie marathon
organize closets, cupboards, or bookshelves
try a new recipe
fix something that needs fixing

8. Insert your own random thought here.

"I'm Better Than I Used To Be" by Tim McGraw. 



7 pretty purplexing comments:

  1. The afghan you made is so pretty!!! I love the little red balls on it.

  2. I love that song and the clever wording of a thought. Can't wait to see him this summer!

  3. Love Tim McGraw's and his backside....oh my!
    Blanket is beautiful....I used to knit maybe start that up again! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  4. I didn't think of Biscuit! My granddaughters love that book!

    Sure wish the NHL would announce the conference semi-finals schedules! I know, I know ... they're waiting for the quarter-finals to end, but I am antsy for some Blues hockey! I'd LOVE to get some tickets for this series (if there are any available), but with no schedule announced, I'm reluctant to try to buy some tickets since we'll be going out of town ... I don't want to buy tickets for game 1 or game 2 (in St. Louis) only to find out that we'll be out of town that night. Go Blues! Go Flyers!

  5. Great answers! I remember Biscuit!!

  6. I, too, would be most likely to read a book or organize something!

  7. the blank #3 says it all. Your lie is that you don't tell lies. Maybe "lie" is too strong of a word.
