Time for Wednesday Hodgepodge. Click on the above button if you would like to join in.
1. National Read a Road Map Day falls on April 5th. Would people say you have a good sense of direction? Do you rely on a GPS when you drive somewhere new? When was the last time you used a map?
I have to say I have a very good sense of direction. I think I inherited that from my Dad. It takes a lot to get me turned around unless you count trying to find your car in the parking lot, then I am lost. Lol. We do have a GPS, we have used it quite a bit. We need to update it, we have gotten lost a time or two because of road changes, but it was well worth its money when we went west. I would say the last time we used a map was on our anniversary last year, finding the parks and attractions around Boxley Valley, Arkansas.
2. What's your favorite cookbook?
I am a cookbook and recipe nut. I love trying new recipes. I think my favorite is one that our church in Arkansas put together. I love those kinds of cookbooks, interesting recipes of down home cooking. I love searching blogs and the internet for new recipes also.
3. What painting would you like to "walk into" and experience? Why?
Wow, I have a picture in my Arkansas home that is definitely speaks to me. The sun is setting on a farm scene, the big farmhouse has a light or two on, and the barn is off to the side and there is a pond in the lower front with a split rail fence on the edge of the field and two kids walking toward the barn with their fishing poles and a dog tagging along behind. It is a simpler time, you can almost feel the peace and serenity, and you can almost hear the kids talking about the one that got away. I love simple things!
4. What annoys you more- misspellings or mispronunciations?
Misspellings! I really get upset when it is my own. I am usually a very good speller.
5. What is something your mother or father considered important?
Dad – Believing in what you do and doing it to the best of your ability. Always being proud of the job you have done.
Mom – Family, everyone getting along.
6. Do you like or dislike schedules?
This is a hard one for me to answer I think sometimes you need schedules; you need to know where you have to be at certain times. But the fun part of me likes to wing it, I like to live one day at a time and take life as it happens.
7. Let's have some fun with National Poetry Month (that would be April)...write your own ending to this poem-
"Roses are Red
Violets are blue..."
My brain is getting tired
How bout you?
8. Insert your own random thought in this space.
I would like to apologize for my lack of blogging lately. Life has been crazy with ups and downs. On top of last week being crazy, I guess I had a 24-hour bug, I was sick all day Sunday. Not a fun day, but Monday morning I was feeling a little better, which was good since I had a doctor’s appointment in the afternoon. I had a mole on my shoulder removed. The doctor did not think it was anything but did not like the fact that it kept getting bigger. Next week I get to meet my new cardiologist here in Springfield. How is that for random?
That’s all folks!
until next time... nel
