Wednesday Hodgepodge

Has spring sprung in your little corner of the world? Other than the calendar how would I know? What's your favorite thing about spring?

The first way you would know is by the moaning and groaning I am doing from all of my arthritis acting up. The slow-brewing stormy weather of spring and pressure changes makes me miserable! Otherwise around here it is the usual: more green, more birds, warmer temps.

More green, more birds, warmer temps.

How does Easter impact you?

I saw this somewhere on Facebook and thought it would make a fun Hodgepodge question. Which of the following would you find most disappointing ... a just-stuffed taco shell breaking open and spilling out before you take the first bite? dropping a just-purchased Starbucks/Dunkin Donuts coffee? opening the peanut butter jar and finding it empty? upending a just-purchased ice cream cone? a burnt bagel popping up in your toaster when you're rushing breakfast? or cutting into an avocado and finding out it's rotten?

It might surprise you that I am not picking a just-purchased cup of coffee, because coffee can be replaced. But my burnt carby bagel of goodness cannot. And that would completely bum me out, especially first thing in the morning!

What's something held together with tape at your house? Or a paper clip? Or a wing and a prayer?

The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is the back of a picture frame. However, there's pretty much nothing that can't be fixed around here by this Macgyverette. I can use household items to fix just about anything.

Do you feel underappreciated? In what way?

I do not feel underappreciated by my husband or children. They are all very good about thanking me for things that I do for them and I know that they appreciate me. Now, misunderstood by anyone other than them that, in turn, makes me feel underappreciated? Yes.

What's something you'd build if you knew how?

I'd tear down our back deck and garage and build an all-new setup. And I would sneak in a chicken coop even though we aren't supposed to have them within city limits.

Insert your own random thought here.

This would be a yummy Easter dinner!!

  1. Say yes to the chicken coop! Dropping by from HodgePodge. Nice to meet you.

  2. Yum! I love flank steak, so might have to try that. Not on Easter though. Gotta have ham with a side of pineapple stuffing on Easter : )
