Wednesday Hodge Podge

If your looking for a meme to do on Wednesdays, then hop on over and join Joyce and the rest of the gang for Wednesday Hodge Podge.

1. What would you do if you found a pot of gold? Let's pretend this pot of gold is worth exactly $1500 (which would actually be more like a cup of gold at current values). Anyway, let's also pretend you have to spend it as opposed to making a donation someplace. Now tell me what you would do with that cup pot of gold?
Go shopping of course, that's a no brainer.

2. Do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day in any way, shape, or form?
Nope, I lived in the Savannah area for 46 years and can remember going to the parade once maybe twice.  Went there after the parade a couple of times but it's gotten way out of control, and too crowded.

3. Have you been bitten by the Spring Cleaning bug? What spring cleaning job most needs doing at your house? What spring cleaning job are you most dreading?
Unfortunately I haven't been bitten yet.  My windows and blinds need cleaning so badly. 
Dreading I guess the blinds, only way I remember my Mom cleaning them was to take them down one by one and putting them in the tub to get them clean.  There's got to be an easier way, right?

4. lime-shamrock-sage-forest...your favorite shade of green?
I would say sage green.

5. Thomas Jefferson once said, "I'm a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it." you believe in luck or do you believe we make our own luck?
I don't believe in luck.  I believe that I am blessed. 

6. Monday (3/14) was Pi Day. Get it? Pi =3.14. Those math types are so clever aren't they? Since I'm not one of them tell me what's your favorite piE (the edible kind).
Pecan, definetly.

7. That same date (3/14) happens to be the birthdate of the late physicist Albert Einstein. I bet he knew the value of Pi. So...what do you think is more important and or valuable in life... intelligence or common sense?
I would say intelligence, it's a shame we can't have both.  But I have heard that the smarter a person is the less common sense they have.  And I have definetly seen that in some people.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I enjoy crocheting but last week I finally tried something I had never tried before.  I've made basic afghans, but never changed colors mid-stream and make a design in it.  If it all works out it should look like this, but at the rate it's taking me it might be Christmas before it's finished.


  1. I would love to attend the St Paddy's day celebration in Savannah Ga. at least once. I hear its one of the biggest around!!!

  2. Amen to #5. We are definitely blessed! You'll have to make sure to show us your completed afghan!

  3. prayer request at arise 2 write.

  4. I can't deal with all of the "celebration" in Savannah on St.Patrick's Day either!
    I love the afghan design--go dawgs :)

  5. Don't blame you for avoiding crowds!!!

    Be sure and shows us that afghan when it's done!

  6. Loved your answer to #5 and agree! I'm impressed with your crocheting and like someone else said, you will definitely have to post pictures when you are finished. I really enjoy crocheting and have an afghan half finished and this jolt may get me back with it. Blessings for this day!

  7. The afghan your making sounds wonderful.
    I wish you much success.

  8. I totally forgot about mini blinds. Ug, add them to my list.

  9. You know I'm glad you said you'd go shopping - I don't know why except that you are sucha giver and I think it would be great to do something for you!


  10. I didn't realize you lived in Savannah for 46 years! We're thinking of going there for Abby's Spring Break in 2 weeks. Anything we just shouldn't miss?

  11. Like #5! Amen! Hope you show us the afghan when you are working on it and whens it finished. I have the mini blinds and the tub thing works for me. I suppose if you had a drying line outside, you could drape them over it and use the garden hose on them! Still to cold up here to do that.

  12. I love Savannah! I would have stayed far away from the parade as well though, I'm not fond of crowds that big!

    Good luck with the afghan, it should be amazing when it's done.

  13. I'm thinking that afghan would probably look much better if it was orange & white with a big "Power T" on it! :D
    I would've loved to have gone to Savannah for St. Patrick's Day when I was younger. Now, not so much. I bet it gets CRAZY down there!

  14. Your background is so pretty here...I like this color green too : ) I'm sure your afghan will be lovely. Good luck with the project!

  15. I agree with you on #5. I can't wait to see your finished afghan. I wish I could crochet ... a friend tried to teach me, but the hands and the brain never seemed to be in synch.

  16. How fun! I enjoyed reading those little somethings about you. If it's ready before Christmas, it could be a great gift for someone special!

  17. I am late to this party. Loved you answers and I feel like they could be mine. I like Sage green too. Our son is very intelligent but never had common sense. Our daughter struggled in school but had lots of common sense. We could use some of each. Hope you have a nice weekend.

  18. Finally, someone else that doesn't believe in luck!!!! So refreshing!
    I have yet to start spring cleaning either...Someday!
    Happy first day of spring week!

  19. I love #5. I don't believe in luck. I think you make your own fortune happen. Mine needs kicking lol.

  20. If I would be given 1500 bucks, I'll spend it too right away!
