Hodgepodge Wednesday

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? Well, since I can't make a donation with it, I might as well go and by myself an IPad since I've been wanting one for some time.  But, I feel guilty saying such with all the dear folks in Japan in such sad shape.  

2. Do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day in any way, shape, or form? My youngest brother was born on St. Patty's day and we use to always have a fun birthday party for him.  But, once I married and moved 1000 miles away, that ended and we've never really had any kind of celebration.  I do like the green, the shamrocks and the leprechauns though.

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? 
Yes, I've definitely been bitten by the cleaning and facelift bug.  If I haven't cleaned it, I've probably given it a facelift.  The baseboards need a "going over" and of course, the ceiling fans need more than a "going over." And, the most dreaded job is all the "stuff" on the top of my kitchen cabinets need to be taken down, washed and dusted. It is such a huge task that I usually hire someone to help me and it goes a lot quicker and is a whole lot more fun.  Guess you could say, "misery loves company."~smile~
4. lime-shamrock-sage-forest...your favorite shade of green? Sage green would be my favorite and I use that color in our Master Bath. 

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? Oh, I think it's probably a little of both.

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).Goodness, I'm glad this question is about the edible kind, otherwise, I'd be "lost as a goose." ~smile~  It would be a Coconut Cream Pie. Yum,yum, yummy!

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? Well, I think it's great if you can be blessed with both, but I have met so many intelligent folks without a lick of common sense and if I only had one or the other (which I do) I would prefer common sense.

8. Insert your own random thought here. I think we can say that Spring has arrived in Northeast Louisiana.  We are having some of the most gorgeous weather, the daffodils are beginning to bloom and we should be seeing some buds on the azalea's shortly. That means lots of picture taking of the sweet Grans!  Stay tuned.......

Once again, Joyce has outdone herself with these Hodgepodge questions.  I can't help but wonder where she gets some of these "dozzie" questions. ~chuckle~ But, for sure, it's never dull and always a lot of fun.  Thanks Joyce!

Hi there! My name is Lea. I've been wife to the best Hubby for 44 years....Mom to a son and daughter....CiCi to 4 precious Grans....lover of family and friends....enjoy laughter and a good time....shopper....picture taking maniac....maker of delicious fudge....organizational enthusiast....memory maker....Southern Belle...and most importantly.....a Child of the King! Welcome to my little corner!


  1. My Daddy just bought the iPad 2 and has loved favorite part it all the "Facetime" talking we've been able to do.

    As for pie, Chris STILL talks about the coconut cream from Slayden's...he just has to be happy with the apple that I OCCASIONALLY make for him. Poor guy, I am more of a chocolate person so that is what I usually make for dessert. I need to do better!

    I'm with you on the common sense. I taught a boy a few years ago that was genius level...he was so smart but had not one lick of common sense or social ability...I'll take the common sense any day!

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Would love to have an iPad! Maybe one day...

  3. I asked the same thing of Joyce in my random thoughts-where do you get these questions?

    I love sage green also. I have it in my kitchen.

  4. I forgot about the baseboards. grrr. Hubby always cleans the ceiling fans. I wonder if I could convince him to do all the blinds also. I hate thinking about taking them all down and cleaning them.

  5. I'm with you on the coconut cream pie. Mind if I borrow your photo for my blog post today? And you know, even after buying the iPad, you will quite a bit of dough left. How would you spend it?

    I saw the good news over at Rachel's blog that your church is having her come speak! Wonderful. Oh, you'll love her. Did you know I got to meet her for about 42 minutes during a layover at the DFW airport baggage claim! Women can sure pack a lot of "visiting" into a short time period , can't we?

  6. That coconut pie looks so good...wish I had time we come see you, we will have to go to Slayden' know that is one of my all-time favorite spots...

    I love the different greens too...I have used some lime green in the sunroom for this Spring and really like it...

    After I got up this morning, I thought..."today is Lea's Hodgepodge Wednesday...wonder what she is going to write about... " I always enjoy sharing in your days...have a great one...

  7. Coconut cream pie was one of the first pies I met that I actually liked =) It was homemade of course - your picture looks delicious! I had very strange (er, picky) tastebuds as a child! ;-)

  8. I think Spring is trying to come here in GA.
    One day we have our windows open taking in the fresh air. Then it rains and turns cold again. Now it's warming up again. The weather man said it's suppose to be 80 by the weekend. So I'm wondering what Summer will be like. I hope its not too hot. Oh My!

  9. Can't wait for all your pics! So glad Spring has arrived in your corner of the world! Feel free to push it along our way!

  10. Would love an Ipad as well, and I love sage green!


  11. You do some SERIOUS spring cleaning! My baseboards and trim (along with most of the walls!) need to be painted. It's been 6 1/2 years, so I think it's time!

  12. I DO love coconut cream pie, and the one in your picture looks fabulous!

    I can't wait to see your pictures!

  13. We don't do anything for St.Patrick's day but I use to go out and have a green beer in my younger days. I don't care for cleaning anymore, I'd rather pay someone to do it. I like Sage Green too. So glad to hear that you Spring has arrived.


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
