My Corner of the Hodgepodge...

If you would like to join in, just click on the button above and hop over to Joyce's and grab the questions to answer on your corner of the Hodgepodge!

1. What's the first image that comes to mind when you hear the word 'spring'? Which phrase best describes the season of spring where you live right now (today)-sprung! almost there, or still waiting?
I always think of a flowerbed of crocus or daffodils. And I would say it is almost here.  Flowers are beginning to appear, no blooms yet.  And the trees are beginning to show life.  Did I mention I love Springtime!

2. Bed, couch, stapler, garage door, computer mouse, recliner, flashlight, door knob...which household item containing springs most needs replacing in your home? Speaking of springs...did you ever own a Slinky?
The garage door...what a pain!  Oh what fun I had with a Slinky! We had a basement and I could make mine walk down the stairs all the way to the bottom!  I wish I had an one laying around, I would make me a bird feeder out of it.

3. March is Women's History Month. Share a favorite quote by a woman.
'Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.'  Maya Angelou  Love that one!

4. What's a question that looms large in your mind right now?

I usually do not look to far into the future, you can make your self crazy doing that.  I guess my question would be - How will my Tupperware Party turn out. lol  deep huh?   haha

5. Are you a sugar freak? By that I mean how much do you love sugar? With all the bad press sugar gets these days, have you made any efforts to reduce the amount of sugar you consume?
I don't consider myself a sugar freak, more of a salt freak.

6. Would you rather have less work to do or more work you enjoy doing?

That is kinda hard to answer, I kind of like how it is right now.

7. Ever been to Texas? Of the top ten Texas tourist attractions which would you most like to see-The Alamo, The San Antonio River Walk, The State Capital, Dallas World Aquarium, Padre Island National Seashore, Houston Space Center, Schlitterbahn Waterpark in New Braunfels, Six Flags Fiesta Texas,  Moody Gardens, or Galveston Island?
I have been to Texas but I would love to see The Alamo, and The San Antonio River Walk.  Yep on my bucket list!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I am getting excited. We are headed to Arkansas in two weeks.  Nothing like spending time with those grand kids and making memories!  I am also hoping to see a few friends and family members I have not seen in forever at the Tupperware Party.  If any of you need anything you can order online here:  Nel's Totally Awesome Tupperware Party.
Have a great week!

until next time...nel


  1. Some people are so clever! I love the bird feeder! Safe travels and enjoy time with your family : )

  2. What a cute bird feeder! People are so clever in their creating!


  3. Im not much on salt, sugar yes.. But not too much. I used to be really bad with that. Now I only eat mostly chocolates for dessert, a lot of other things have a surprising amount of sugar like yogurt!

  4. Daffodils make me think of spring (and my MIL), too!
    I hope your party goes well. I took a trip over and looked at the site. My how Tupperware has changed over the years!

  5. Both sugar and salt are considered unhealthy, so reducing them is a must.
    Enjoy your trip to Arkansas!
