Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. What are your plans for Easter? Are you cooking a big lunch or dinner?  Dyeing eggs? Attending a sun rise service?  Eating too much chocolate?

We will have our family Easter on Saturday afternoon.  I'm hoping the weather will be such that we can sit outside and hide eggs for our Princess.  I am cooking a big dinner and my Dad will also join us.  I'm planning to grill a beef tender, and have potato casserole, green bean casserole, strawberry salad, rolls and lemon cake. I will not be dying eggs or attending a sun rise service, but I will eat just a little bit of chocolate.  I like peanut butter and chocolate and I have some candy eggs with that combination, but likely I'll only indulge in one or two.  Hubby and I will be by ourselves on Sunday and will probably go out to eat following church and then "chill."  Sounds exciting doesn't it? ~smile~

  2.  What is something you feel too young to do?
 Park in the "Reserved for those 60 and over" parking lot at our church.  Just no need at this time in my life and as long as I can park in the regular parking lot, I certainly will.  But, it is certainly nice for those who need it!  And, the day may come that I'm pulling right up in it and happy to be able to do so. ~grin~

  3.  "Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs..." 
Of the characteristics mentioned in the biblical definition of love which do you find most difficult to live out and why?
Oh, I think it would be being patient.  I have a tendency to be impatient but in recent years I've really worked on it and think I've mellowed out a lot. ~hope, hope~ Of course, I still have a ways to go, but I'm making progress.~smile~

  4. What's a springtime flower you associate with your childhood?
I likely did not know that there was any other flower except a daffodil until I was 25 years old. No joke!  They seemed to always be in every yard we had in my childhood and then the first couple of little homes Hubby and I lived in had them too. They are such a happy flower and represent "spring is around the corner" to me.

5.  Ever sung karaoke? If so, what's your go-to song? If not and you're given the opportunity, would you? 

Yes, two friends and myself sang karaoke when we were on our Alaskan Cruise 5 1/2 years ago.  I could not remember the song so I called both of them a little while ago to ask them and they cannot remember either. ~sad~  But, it was something like "Going to the Chapel."  We did a decent job might I add. ~brag, brag~
6. What is something you keep in a basket?
Oh, I do love baskets!  I keep all my "nighttime ritual" stuff in a basket on the bathroom counter.  By nighttime ritual stuff, I mean, things like, face cleaner, facial creams, hand scrub, floss and cotton balls.  It is a neat little divided basket and everything has a place and for someone organized like me, that's a good thing!

  7.  When was the last time you felt foolish?
Hummmmm......I've drawn a blank.  But, let me assure you, I am so gullible and making a fool of myself has happened often and I'm sure it was just yesterday that I felt foolish over something. But,I'm having a "senior moment" and cannot recall the last time. ~sigh~

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I saw this sign at the Spring Market I went to this past weekend and I stopped in my tracks and laughed out loud.  I thought of the truth of this statement and I guess it's just as well that "as far as everyone knows."  And, as we always ask, what is normal anyway?

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. My mom is a young 82 : ) She gets huffy if I suggest dropping her off at the door when we're out somewhere. "I'm capable of walking" is what she'll say. I think fighting against aging has kept her youthful. I'm sure I'll be just like her.

    Happy Easter! Your meal sounds delicious!

  2. Your Easter celebration sounds similar to ours in that we will do it the before and "chill" after church on Sun. I forgot about Daffodils! Love them! Happy Easter!

  3. Your Easter dinner sounds delicious. I love baskets to keep everything organized too. I have too many to list in my post ;)
    Happy Easter!

  4. That sounds like an absolutely wonderful way to spend your Easter weekend.

  5. Ha ha! I've seen that sign on Pinterest. I need that.

    Happy Easter! :)

  6. Enjoyed your answers. Happy Easter!

  7. I always enjoy your Wednesday Hodgepodge, your Easter plans sound wonderful, work and play on Saturday, and rest on Sunday!
    I too enjoy using baskets to organize things.
    Wishing you and your dear family a most blessed Resurrection Sunday.

  8. Sounds like a lovely Easter to me!

    I think the Superhero would say I need to work on keeps no record of wrongs! Yikes!

    I love baskets, but I'm NOT organized and they quickly just become another place to put anything I don't know where else to put! :(

    I don't think anyone would mistake us for a normal family, but I did laugh when I saw that!

  9. That sign is hysterical. I hope you get warm weather for an egg hunt!

  10. I use baskets as well to keep everything organized especially in the bathroom. We have his and hers.

  11. I love the normal family sign! I think I'd like one for my kids since I'm sometimes reminding them to be normal. : )

  12. i also do not know names of most flowers. I hope you have a great Easter!

  13. That would definitely be a fun song to sing! I love using baskets around the house. Now that was a cute sign you saw. Have a wonderful time Saturday. Sounds yummy!

  14. Morning, Lea! Just wanted to stop by real quick to wish you and yours a BLESSED Easter! My oldest daughter is coming home from college today...I'm just giddy with excitement! :)


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!
