WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE

Volume 297
Thank you Joyce :)

1. What do/did you call your grandparents? If it's something unusual tell us the story behind the name. If you're a grandparent what do your grands call you? Who chose your moniker?

My grandparent's on both sides were called grandma and grandpa. My great grandparents would have been called Babi and Dede which was Bohemian which I guess is Czech Republic now. (babička a dědeček)

2. Ever taken a road trip along the California Coast? If so what was the highlight of your trek? If not, any desire to do so? If you were to take a trip along the California Coast what's one attraction you'd have on your must-see list?

Actually we haven't taken trips along the coast but we have been to portions of the California Coast. I would recommend San Diego, Lo Jolla, Carlsbad, Santa Monica, Santa Barbara and Santa Cruz. 

3. What are three things you don't know how to do?

I can't change the oil on the car, I can't install a ceiling fan and I can't repair our appliances. These just came to mind. I can't line dance or square dance! This list could go on and on.....

4. Tom Peters is quoted as saying, 'Celebrate what you want to see more of.' If that's true what will you celebrate and more importantly, how will you celebrate?

Sounds like a road trip celebration to me! I want to see dozens of places around the United States! 

5. Thursday (February 16) is National Almond Day. Do you like almonds? Which would you prefer-an Almond Joy or a macaron? What's something you make that calls for almonds?

Yes I like almonds, I always make a bowl of mixed raw nuts that sits on our counter. ( Almonds, Pecans and Walnuts. I sometimes use Hazelnuts, Cashews and Macadamia nuts too) 

I would prefer a macaroon.

6. What does Saturday morning look like at your house?


Mark reads the paper and has his coffee. Then he takes Skye for a walk. For me it is similar to other days however I usually do projects around the house on Saturday. 

7. Share with us a favorite book you've read this winter.

I haven't read any, I know it is terrible but most of my readings are on blogs each day and yes that has to change!!! 

However I have bought way too many books for my Kindle application that is on my phone/computer. I often buy them from Goodreads for 99 cents or from my friend on Facebook who has free Christian books each day! 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
