Good morning! It's Wednesday and the last day of March! Here are my answers to the Wednesday Hodgepodge questions shared by Joyce at From This Side Of The Pond. Follow the link!
1. The Hodgepodge lands on the last day of March...in ten words or less bid, the month adieu.
March was shamrocks, birthdays, daffodils.
Bye, 'til we meet again.
2. March 31st is National Tater Day...your favorite way to have a potato? Given a choice would you opt for sweet, white, or red? How often are potatoes on your menu in one form or another? Ever been to Idaho? If not, is that a state you'd like to visit someday?
I love my white potatoes mashed. I do love sweet potatoes; they must be savory not sweet. I would say that potatoes are most likely to be added to soups at our house, about once a month.
Idaho is the state just east of my home state where I was born and raised, Oregon. So yes, I've been to Idaho more times than I can count. My memory is that the first time I crossed the Snake River into Idaho was when our high school choir met in Boise for a musicale with other Christian high school choirs from the Pacific Northwest.
Recently, several friends have moved to Idaho from California, so I would always like to visit them.
3. Last time someone or something 'rained on your parade'? Explain.
Currently, I am on a short road trip with The Professor, Older Daughter and Grandson. Grandson, The New Boy, has been in charge of finding restaurants. He chose the perfect one we all wanted to try and it was just a few blocks from our Air BnB. What disappointment! The restaurant is closed until Friday for renovations/construction work. We were sad, especially New Boy. But we found another wonderful place to have dinner.
4. Put all your eggs in one basket, get cracking, nest egg, bad egg, good egg, egg on, have egg on your face, or walk on eggshells...choose a phrase from the list that applies to something in your life currently and tell us how or why.
It's time for me to 'get cracking' on starting seeds for my garden!
5. If I visited your home would I find a lot of baskets there? Something you like to keep in a basket?
I think I have maybe four baskets in my whole house. Two are in my studio room, filled with yarn and knitted items (mostly hats). In the family room, there is a basket filled with some of my handknitted blankets, folded and waiting for someone to grab and cuddle in if they are cold. The fourth basket is empty and sitting on the landing at the top of the stairs. When we moved in the house in October, I plopped it there, and it hasn't moved (but it is kinda cute).
6. Inset your own random thought here.
Have you ever heard of Longaberger Baskets? The company built their headquarters to look like a huge basket. It's in the county where I live now.
