Wednesday Hodgepodge



1. 'In like a lion, out like a lamb'...does the first part of this saying describing March weather ring true  where you live? 
Well, I would have to say yes.  It was 72 degrees yesterday and humidity was probably 110% and today is predicted to be in the 70's as well and then drop tonight to the low 20's with wintery mix and then tomorrow's high is supposed to be only 34.  My youngest brother is suppose to fly in tomorrow from Des Moines and it remains to be seen if he will actually make it.  Between our weather and their weather it could be tricky. ~yuck~

2. March 4th is National Grammar Day. What common grammatical error bothers you the most? 
It grates against my last nerve to hear someone say I seen or I done rather than I have seen or I have done.  

3. William Arthur Ward says- 'The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.' Which one are you?
I have been all of them at times in my life but as I've gotten older I think I have become more of an optimist and a realist.  But, I think some folks often think a realist is a pessimist. ~just sayin'~
  
4. What's something you need to 'march forth and conquer' this month? In our current home I have about 3 closets with clothes in them.  None of the closets are huge so I have my clothes divided out between them.  In our new home I have had a professional closet designer design our master closets and I refuse to use any other closets in the house for my clothes. Our master closets in our new home are what I would call moderate size, but they are plenty big enough to hold all the clothes, shoes, etc. that I could possibly ever need.   In the coming month I am going to have a huge closet cleaning, anything that I do not love is not making the cut for my new closet.  So, I am definitely going to "march forth and conquer."  It could be a rather difficult job but I am looking forward to it. Look out thrift store and consignment shop, here I come!!!
 
5. An ongoing debate around here...do you dust first, then vacuum or vacuum first, then dust? Of the two routine household chores, which do you dislike the least? How's that for wording? 
I dust first but I do not think it matters a bit, I do it first to get it over with, I detest dusting!!! ~no joke~

6. According to thrilllist.com, the ten most photographed sites in the U.S.A. are- Cinderella's Castle in Orlando, Southernmost House in Key West Florida, The Space Needle in Seattle, The Site of the Boston Massacre in Boston, The Bellagio Lake/fountains in Las Vegas, The Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC, Coit Tower in San Fransisco, The Art Institute of Chicago, Niagara Falls, and snagging the number one spot-The Guggenheim Museum in New York City. 
How many on this list have you photographed? Which on the list would you most like to visit and photograph?

I have photographed 5 of the above but have never been to Niagara Falls, thus have never photographed them.  But, hopefully I will have that opportunity in the future. 

7. Fifty years ago Monday (March 2, 1965) The Sound of Music premiered at the Rivoli Theatre in NYC. Have you seen the film? Do you own a copy? On a scale of 1-10 how much do you love it (or not)? Ten=best movie ever. If you're a fan, what's your favorite scene or song from the movie? 
Believe it or not, The Sound of Music was the first movie I saw in a movie theater.  I had only been to a drive-in before then.  I have probably seen it 5-6 times and have enjoyed it immensely  each time but I do not own it.  I would give it a 10 and it's really hard to name a favorite song or scene, I love them all but "Climb Every Mountain" gave me chills.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Andi Kate and I are having our first "one on one" visit today.  Her Mommy is going out for a little while and I will have the privilege of  keeping my little Sweetheart.  She is 3 weeks old today and we can't imagine our lives without her.  She is growing and changing daily and wrapping us tighter around her little finger. 
~that's what little girls do~

  1. Enjoy your custom closet! I just cleaned out my dresser drawers yesterday, a task I truly dislike. Now they're nice and neat. I don't know why I can't keep them that way. Have fun with your little miss today : )

  2. I have never had closet problems until I moved here. And it's because the closet is the size of a small room and EVERYTHING it seems gets stuffed into it. I used to go through regularly and get ride of clothes to make room for new ones. Now I just add them in. I have gotten rid of clothes just once in the 4 and half years we have lived here, lol. Good luck on your purging. Oh, and have fun with that little sweetie today. How fun!! I can't wait to hold me new grand daughter!

  3. Hoping your brother's travel plans to you are unaffected by the weather. You might be interested in thredup as you clean out your closets. I mentioned it in my hodgepodge post today. Enjoy your day with your precious little girl.

  4. I agree, I dislike when it is me who makes the error. I always dust and then vacuum.

    I am so thrilled for you, enjoy your day with Andi Kate!

  5. I knew when we moved to MO from 25 years in CA...It would be important to purge...This house has a lot of storage but my closet is not sufficient and I have to switch out winter with spring/summer. an move them to our upstairs loft area closet.

  6. The comment that a realist is a pessimist -- I've not heard that but yes, many think that. I think we need to face the truth, so that's a realist, I guess.

    Enjoy your time with Andi Kate!! We will be visiting our new little granddaughter for the first time next week.

  7. I need to purge. I purged when we moved into this house, but that was 6 1/2 years ago ... I've added stuff, so something needs to go as we're running out of room.

  8. OH, a custom closet--yay! The man who lived here before us was an engineer and clearly put his mark on our master bedroom closet. The built-in shelves and rods provide wonderful and pretty storage. I'm not a clothes horse, so I don't even use a dresser because the closet is sufficient. That said, I must march forth and conquer cleaning it out soon, as the upper shelves need attention. Enjoy the whiteness of the snow. Gotta admit , it's pretty if nothing else!

  10. I'm with you, Lea, I detest dusting too. And I'm not so fond of vacuuming either. I am sure you are cherishing every precious moment with Andi Kate. Have a great weekend!

  11. Oh my goodness, has it been three weeks already since you little Sweetheart was born. I hope you enjoy your time with here. Closets seem to be an ongoing issue with me, I need to go through mine, be realistic and get rid of anything that doesn't fit, or that I don't love. Sometimes I think having less is so much easier. Maybe I'll do some purging when I change my closet from winter to spring
