It's Wednesday Hodgepodge over at Joyce's place From This Side of the Pond. Head on over and join us. So here we go..................

1. What is the most amazing weather you've ever seen?
I am not sure other then some really big snow storms but I do remember the sky on 9-11-09 and it was amazing.

2. What is a sound or noise you love?
When a young child giggles, I can listen for hours.

3. Do you like seafood? What's your favorite seafood dish?
I usually eat Salmon but I do love lobster.

4. What part of your day requires the most patience?
You really want me to pick one part of my day. I want to say all of it. I think it's a menopause thing!

5. What's your favorite shade of blue?
Baby blue is my favorite but I do like Robin Egg blue too.

6. Do people underestimate you?
I don't know, you will have to ask them! Well actually I believe that people did when I got divorced, worked full time and had two little ones. I didn't want help, did it all myself. (except for the checks from the "x")

7. When was the last time you had butterflies in your stomach?
I don't remember, wait maybe I had some when we were in Chicago a few weeks ago, especially flying.

8. Insert your own random thought here, and remember...I have a wooden spoon and I'm not afraid to use it.
Go ahead and hit me with the wooden spoon because my random thought is that I would like another question.

I love smoked mackrel and will try and get an occasional smoked mackrel roll. Mmmmmmmm

People always underestimate me: a woman steering a big bus. Even my own colleagues have been known to do it!

Joyce said...

I love lobster too but crabs are my favorite. Have you ever been to Maine? We ate a whole lotta lobster when we were there...I could live on the lobster rolls I think!

I only pull out the spoon if someone puts in something naughty : )

Those sky pictures are gorgeous. And yum for lobster!

Nichol said...

The photos of the sky is amazing! I've seen lots of crazy weather, from hurricanes, to blizzards, and tornadoes. Mother nature is sure crazy.

Lea said...

Great pics of the sky! And, love your answer to #4. How funny, but also how real! :o) This is such fun and I so enjoyed stopping by. Blessings to you!

Nanato4 said...

Beautiful pictures of the sky!

I agree on #7 ... I do NOT like to fly and always have butterflies (that feel like they're the size of 747's ha!) when I have to fly.


LynnMarie said...

Loved #8! You may get hit with the dredded wooden spoon! Love the sky photos as well.

i love this little meme. if i hadn't already posted, i'd play along!
seafood? salmon induces the gag reflex for me. the hubs has tried to sneak it into my diet via dip… with capers and onions on toast points… grilled… fricassied (sp). whatever. i can spot it a mile away. no matter how he tries to hide and disguise… in my best george h.w. bush/dana carvey impression… not gonna happen!
my favorite would have to be shrimp. i like fish… but no bones and it can't be "fishy."
ha! talk about picky!!

I love the kiddos giggles too! Always brings a smile to my face :-)

Flying Giggles and Lollipops said...

Those pictures look amazing!

I too love the sounds of those deep down belly giggles...hence, "flying giggles"

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

That is a beautiful sky! I don't touch salmon or lobster, can I still count!?

Colleen - the AmAzINg Mrs. B said...

These are great fun! LOVE the sky photos!!

Amy said...

I love dark blue.. Or how the sky can change colors of blue.. I also love Lobster.. Yes, a child's laughter is the best.. My Mom use to get me with a wooden spoon.. Have a great day..

Katherine said...

What a beautiful sky! And, I love hearing a child giggle. It automatically brings a smile to my face.

Your wooden spoon comment made me chuckle.

Nezzy said...

Girl, those magnificent sky shots blew me right outta my manure stompin' boots! They are just breathtakingly beautiful sweetie!

I loved readin' your answers. I too love the giggles. Heck, I still love to giggle and this ripe old age!

God bless and have a marvelously blessed day!!!

Together We Save said...

I enjoy lots of kinds of seafood but I never eat it!!

nancygrayce said...

I love some friend shrimp or grouper and fresh scallops! Scallops are best when you go get them (as in dive them up), go home and shuck them (YUCK) and fry them up in the pan and eat those suckers!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Wow that sky pictures are just gorgeous!

I love the kid giggles :)

ModernMom said...

Oh and my girls are avoiding bedtime right now b/c they are giggling up a storm:)

Mary said...

You want another question - haha, that's funny.

Robins egg blue is a great color, I'd have to agree with that one.

That sky truly was amazing.
