WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE

 
Volume 167
Thank you Joyce!

1.  Thursday marks the first day of spring...to celebrate would you rather plant a garden or go for a walk in the woods? Would either of those activities be possible on Thursday where you live?

I use to love to work outside in the garden but not so much anymore and yes we can do it where we live. So I will go for a walk and yes I could walk in the woods if I wanted to. 

2. When did someone last spring something on you? (or when did you last spring something on someone?)

It was on Friday the 7th of March, unfortunately I can't share it here. 

3.  We often think of spring as a time for new beginnings. What's something you'd like to start doing this spring?

Definitely start going for walks with Skye!

4. Where do you like to sit in a movie theatre? When did you last sit there, and what were you watching?

Well it's been a few weeks but I hope to see something later this week. It was Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit on February 28th.  

I actually don't care where we sit however we can only be a few seats in from the isle. I can't have anyone next to me on the end of the row (unless it's family) because for sure I will have to go potty if I'm boxed in. It is all in my head but that's how I roll......

5. When you meet someone for the very first time, what do you want them to think about you?

That I am friendly and kind hearted. 

6. March is frozen food month (yes, really!). Besides ice cream (gotta make you think a little) what's your most often purchased frozen?

Probably Lou Malnati's deep dish frozen pizza from Chicago or frozen mixed berries from Costco. We do buy a frozen garden burger too but otherwise we don't buy many things frozen but we do buy meat and freeze it! 

7. What's something you avoid?

The many telemarketers who call the house. If your talking about food items I avoid caffeine and sugar. Also I stopped drinking soda close to 20 years ago!

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Fun to read your answers. I hope to start walking again this Spring. Wishing you and Skye a good day.

Little Penpen said...

I enjoy these posts from you. Your answers are always so clever. I agree with you on the seating arrangements in the movie theater... same way at church. I don't want to crawl over anyone to get out. ;))

Miss Debbie said...

Funny about the gym! I sure need to get back there!!

Cathy said...

I'm like you. I want to be able to get out during a movie, if I need too. I don't like to be boxed in anywhere.

Cathy said...

Oh and I forgot to say: I love your random. Made me laugh. I may have to borrow that.

Chatty Crone said...

You are friendly and kind hearted!! You know when you go into a theater and if you turn left there are front row seats and if you turn right there is a little railing and the seats up? I like to sit on the first row - behind that railing so I can put my feet on the first rung and in the middle!!! My favorite seat.
I understand some of the other things too.

TexWisGirl said...

the last one always makes me laugh when i see it. :)

i hope you and skye can start walking soon.

Debbie said...

Enjoyed this as always...loved your little random thought, lol Enjoy your day!

RockinMom said...

Mmmm. YUM. Lou Malnati's. My favorite. I love that place.

Too cure with your random thought, Debby. I do think it is a good idea if you start taking Skye for walks; build up your endurance a little bit each week and before long you'll be surprised how far you'll be able to walk (of course we are going to be fighting the warm weather in a few months where you'll have to walk first thing in the morning or late at night). Hope things are going as well as they can be going consideirng.

Sandra said...

telemarketers is a dirty word to me.that is one of my hot buttons... whats a garden???LOL LOL...

Nikki Scatchard said...

oh telemarketers drive me CRAZY! Especially the rude ones who call at quarter to nine when i'm lazed on the couch watching a game. Even my dog knows I don't want to get up. He's a hearing dog so that is one of his sounds he's supposed to alert me with. I hope you have a great week!

Mara said...

Spring? Is that a new food group??

Love the cartoon at the end. Although in my case it's more like 10 years probably!

April said...

If I see that a telemarketer is calling I just don't pick up. I don't want to give them any hope of "selling" me. They drive me BONKERS!

STILLMAGNOLIA said...

I am so with you on the telemarketers. I hate them. I loved your random post. That is so me!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Frozen meals huh? I do buy frozen broccoli a lot.

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Oh man now I'm wanting to know about the spring upon you! :)

LOL love the ecard :)

xinex said...

Geez! I can't remember the last time I went to the movies. I only watch Netflix at home now....Christine

holli said...

I love love love the gym cartoon at the end. Thats me for sure.
Telemarketers was a great answer and they bug the crap out of me. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I'm returning the favor. :)

Joyce said...

Ha-five years in a row : ) That's cute! Telemarketers is a great answer. Love my caller id. Hope you're doing well...I haven't had a chance to respond to your last email, but I will! Have a good day!

A Joyful Chaos said...

Telemarketers annoy me, a lot! I try to avoid them too. Thankfully caller ID helps out a lot, and being on the do not call list has helped reduce the amount of calls we receive.

Secret Agent Woman said...

I want to garden AND go for a walk, but it will have to wait for the weekend, since I'm busy right up until night-time tomorrow.

NanaNor's said...

Hi there, Loved reading your answers-some were very similar to how I'd answer. I don't like gardening as much as I used to and am thankful that we will have a smaller yard. I do love to go on walks, hikes, bike rides.
Hope you have a blessed first day of Spring.
Hugs,
Noreen

Nancy Face said...

I too avoid caffeine, sugar and drinking soda!

I LOVE sitting on the front row of the stadium seating in a theater, so I can prop my feet up on the bar! Last film we saw was "Non-Stop" starring Liam Neeson - it's exciting!

Hilary said...

i feel like everyday I have something sprung on me...

Trish said...

I didn't make it to the gym either. LOL. Spring is here, but it will still be a couple of months before we plant anything! Big hugs Debby.

tammy doane said...

I love going for walks-clears my mind. Going to the gym is so hard, but once you start it becomes routine!

edshunnybunny said...

Loved your answer about the movie seats :) I always have to take a potty break, too...

What a cute random thought!

I think you and I would make great walking buddies, too :) It's too bad we like on opposite sides of the US!

KC Bob said...

I resonate with #3 Debby. I gotta get walking again.

Theresa said...

I don't like to be boxed in either ;) Costco's frozen berries are good. Love your random thought :)
