WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE


Click on the button to join in on Joyce's Hodgepodge!


1. St. Patrick's Day will be celebrated this coming Saturday...what's a favorite article of clothing you own that contains a touch o' the green?
I can't think of anything with green except for a new forest green sweater that I bought before my trip which matches my forest green Birkenstock!

2. What's a favorite 'green space' in the town, state, or province where you live?
I love the wooded mountains. I guess I would have to say Mammoth Lakes, CA.

3. Do you wish you were taller, shorter, or think you're just about right in the height department?
I would have liked being a little taller but it never bothered me to be short! I am 5'2" and my sister is 5'8".

4. What's the surest way for someone to pick a fight with you?
Disagree with me when I know I'm 100% right! Sometimes Mark does it just to get a reaction!

5. Broccoli-Spinach-String Beans-Peas...of the four, your favorite green veg? (Or the one you dislike the least if that first option's too hard. I just know there's some veggie haters out there.)
Spinach is my favorite. Don't care for peas but I like the others also.

6. March is National Women's History Month...besides friends, neighbors and the women you're related to, who's a woman in history you admire and why?
I have always admired Princess Diana. It wasn't easy becoming a Princess and living with a man who never really loved her. I love how she broke the rules and gave her all to showing her sons how real people live, along with showing them the suffering that goes on in our world.

7. Keep Calm and __Blog__on.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Still in Florida having a great time with my father and family. I will be by next week to visit with you. Mark flies home from Europe tomorrow, I fly home on Saturday, Adam & Tristen are in Greece and fly home on the 23rd. Please keep us in your prayers for safe travel. ((HUGS))

My husband and I both like spinach however the Renegades think it is gross!

Love the pic. Looks like a nice day at the beach.

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

Awww, love the picture of you and your dad at the beach! Lucky you to be able to take your shoes off and dig your toes into the sand.

In 10 days, I'll be able to take my shoes off and walk along a beach, too!

LynnMarie said...

Love the photo of you and your dad on the beach with bare feet! Looks so nice and warm. Love all veggies if they are fresh, hate the canned stuffed.

Nani said...

Definitely a prayer for safe travels! I love the beach photo!

Kathy said...

Great photo of you and your dad! That beach looks so inviting...Wishing safe travels for all :)

nancygrayce said...

That is such a great picture of you and your dad!!!

How did your sister get so much taller?? My older sister is the same height as I am, but is smaller boned and has longer legs....and a waist. I'm 5'3ish" .....

I had to go look to see if I have a green anything and I do have several! I love green.

Have safe travels (all of you)!

Furry Bottoms said...

Oh I would love to sink my toes into warm sand and freezing cold ocean water!

April said...

What a wonderful photo of you and your dad! Glad you've been enjoying yourself! I sure could use a trip to the beach! Praying for safe travels for you all!

Simone said...

I'm so glad that you all are spending time together. It's so precious! Safe travels to all of you!

Chatty Crone said...

Well, I am way to short for my weight! lol sandie

Debbie said...

Oh, Deb...I'm so jealous! That beach is exactly where I want to be! Where are you? I'm coming there! :) Safe travels to all of you.

Garden of Egan said...

And I love the pictures that you've posted of Mammoth Lakes.

Love that photo of you at the ocean. I'm totally in love with Florida.

Laura said...

Wishing you safe travels and a lovely visit with your dad! How nice to see sun and water! It was 75 in Michigan today and in March that is unheard of!!! Reading your post reminded me that I used to do a "women's history" month thing with my students where I would dress up as a different woman from history each day and teach them about that woman. It stemmed from a little boy once saying that girls were nurses and boys were doctors... grrrr... I wish our curriculum wasn't so crazy so that I could still fit it in! Happy St. Patty's day! (almost) I can't wait for the leprechauns to come!

Joyce said...

Cute picture of you and your dad : ) Safe travels!

Secret Agent Woman said...

Nice shot of you and your Dad.

The height question is a little random in that set of green questions. I'm a little under 5'4" and love my height (and being with significantly taller men).

Just painted my nails green for tomorrow!

Polly said...

Oh you are a shorty like me, Im a whole 5ft tall!
