The Theme Is Spring


1. What is your favorite sign of Spring?
The wild California poppies along the freeways.

2. Did you remember to spring forward on March 14? If not, how did it impact your day?
Yes I remembered.

3. If soil, time, talent and climate were no problem, what vegetable would you plant in a garden this year?
Tomatoes

4. If soil, time, talent and climate were no problem, what fruit would you plant?
Pomegranate

5. What is your least favorite insect?
Spiders

6. March 22 was World Water Day. To celebrate, here are some water questions. Do you drink bottled water? If so, what brand?
Yes, we drink Arrowhead.

7. Have you ever been somewhere that it was not safe to drink the local water? If so, how did you handle that?
Not that I can remember.

8. How many glasses of water do you drink per day?
At least 5 or more. I don't drink soda.

9. March 24 is the birthday of Harry Houdini. Have you ever watched a professional magic show? Share.
Yes I have but I don't remember much about it, its been years.

No but I have seen some really great card tricks.

11. March 24 is also the birthday of Steve McQueen and Clyde Barrow. Do you like Westerns or gangster movies? If so, what is your favorite?
Not really but I do watch westerns with my husband. I liked Clint Eastwood's movie
Unforgiven. It had some wonderful life lessons for the young in it.

12. (Really random) What U.S. state that you've never visited would you like to visit someday?
Washington DC is high on my list and also New York. I want to see all the monuments and I want to see the Statue of Liberty.

Have you tried a Brita filter?? We used to drink bottled water, but we were going through SO MUCH and we felt guilty about the number of bottles we produced. We bought our own individual water bottles (made by Rubbermaid) and we fill them out of the Brita pitcher as many times as we need to during the day, and we keep it in the refrigerator so it's always cold. We don't drink soda either! It's too sugary and unhealthy!

You can't grow tomatoes there? That's no fun! Do you grow other vegetables?

Together We Save said...

We are planning to plant tomatoes this year for the first time in awhile... thinking about on of those topsy things? I wonder if they work.

We drink alot of bottled water... I have tried other ways but my kids just won't drink as much. I really try and recycle as much as I can because of it.

I live about 45 minutes outside of NYC and I'm really enjoying exploring this time around. We lived in this area when my kids were small so getting into the city was much different then. My hubs and I go in often on the weekends and my girls love it too when they are home.

I love Poppies...we had gorgeous gigantic poppies in our garden in England.

Sh@KiR@ CK said...

Excellent answers. Love the poppies and New York! Must go ....

Happy Wednesday!

Hi, Friend! Rick and I are going to DC for Glenn Beck's meeting in August. Should be interesting. We're also hoping to tour some great places while we're there. Wanna go?

Deborah Ann said...

Been to NY...love pomegranates too.

I don't care for Clint E., but I saw Grand Torino, and I LOVED it!

Have a blessed Easter, my dear sister in Christ!

Randi Troxell said...

great answers.. i always love reading these!

My favourite western: 'Support your local sherriff'. Loved that film and even own it.

No magic for me, I only get very annoyed and stressed because I know it's fake and can't find it.

And any state in the US would do for me, never having been outside of Europe!

SouthLakesMom said...

Thanks for participating in RD!

My daughter would be THRILLED if I could plant pomegranate. She discovered them this past Christmas and is now begging me to pay the 'off season' prices for them! HA!

christy rose said...

I hardly ever drink water! I need to drink more, I know! But I just can't seem to make myself and I can't get the habit started. I would love to go to Washington DC too!!

Trish said...

Washington DC and the Statue of Liberty are awesome. We have been to DC twice because there is just so much to see.
We have a water filter so we don't drink bottled water and we recycle everything that we can.
Have a great day Debby!

skoots1mom said...

love your poochies...so CUTE!!
DC is awesome...love that there are NO power or phone lines anywhere (everything is underground)...it makes for GREAT pics :)

have a great remainder of your week

blueviolet said...

I'm not sure whether I hate spiders or mosquitoes more. They're both evil in their own wasy.

Interesting with the pomegranates!

Technodoll said...

You know card tricks! Awesome :-D

I've never had a pomegranate, they look so complicated for not much... like an artichoke. But they sure are pretty and i love the juice.

Of the pomegranate, i mean.

(*grin*)

COUNTRY MOM said...

I love the california poppies, too - I used to plant them when I had a wildflower garden in Michigan.

You would really enjoy DC. The monuments are truly incredible as well as the museums. Plan a trip and just do it :)

Robin @ Be Still and Know said...

I bet the poppies are amazing.

Love "Unforgiven" just watched it again the other day.

Blessings
