April Showers brings May Flowers {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?
After such a long, long, harsh winter… I am ready for spring.  I have opened up the windows on the warmer days.  The house feels more alive with all the fresh air.  Now if it would only stop raining…. 

2. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being no big deal, and 10 being full scale panic, rank your fear of spiders.
Spiders? 10++++++++++
Stink bugs are no problem.  

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

4. I mentioned on my blog last week that my 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)
All sound lovely but Vancouver is speaking to me.

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?
Literally, last night at the gym running on the tread mill. 

6. What is something little you love?
Hugs from the little kids in my daycare. I'm lucky to get those frequently.

7. Would you say you are more of a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learner? Elaborate.
I asked my husband which he thought I would be.  He chuckled and said definitely not auditory because you are already partially deaf.  (He's right. My right ear can only hear at 25%).
I think I am more visual.  I read and use pictures more so than hands-on.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
The weather has been such a tease. We will get one day of sunshine and warmth before Mother Nature changes her mind and it begins raining and becomes chilly again.  Yes, April showers bring May flowers… but it has to STOP raining to enjoy the flowers!

Thank you Joyce for hosting Wednesday Hodgepodge.

  1. We had a long enough dry spell that the dirt road was DRY. This rarely happens (when I see dust behind the truck I get all excited.) BUT, it stormed yesterday and I think is supposed to rain all week. My flowers are blooming though! Yay!

  2. Yes I do love Caesar and Parmesan on a salad too! Those sounds like awesome hugs.

  3. Lets not talk about stink bugs... we get groves of them. So frustrating

  4. "only stop raining" wait a minute that's the part you need for the May flowers.
    #3 - a big bowl
    If it is raining tell your little clients you need more hugs.

  5. I was thinking the same thing about needing rain for flowers. There comes a point though, when enough is enough. ;-)

  6. My 16 year old son is petrified of Stink Bugs. It's fun to chase him around the house, as he squeals like a little girl. LOL

  7. I heard Florida is getting hit by major flooding. I take it's not where you live?

  8. I'll take as many of those hugs as I can get. =)

  9. Oh, I bet the Moms of the kiddos you keep feel very blessed to have someone like you watching over their little ones while they work. What a blessing!

    You would love Vancouver!

    I love the name of your blog, so unique!!!

  10. No, it hasn't hit us yet. I'm in North Central Florida. It's hitting my brother's town hard though, he lives in Pensacola up in the panhandle. Is it flooding where your son lives?

  11. Rain, rain, rain - that's what we've been getting too. And chilly. Snowflakes on Monday. Need sunshine and flowers. :-) Vancouver sounds intriguing to me too. I've had my windows open a couple days too. Feels good to get some fresh air in the house.

  12. Snowflakes?! ugh! We've been able to leave the windows cracked a bit even when its been raining. Love the fresh air! Have a great day Dawn!

  13. Thanks for stopping by and it's very nice to meet you! I take it you are from Vancouver? ;-)

  14. Mother Nature just won't give the East a break! I'm so sick of the weather and long to not wear shorts but feel the warm sun on my face! And some pretty flowers in the yard would be nice! Have a great day!

  15. Oh, no, I live in NE Louisiana, I've just visited Vancouver twice and it's lovely.
