Wednesday Hodgepodge 30/3/16

Wednesday's Hodgepodge is brought to us courtesy of Joyce at 

Pop over there to see other posts and if you want to join in add the link to your Hodgepodge blog post to the Linky List at the end of Joyce's post and don’t forget to visit at least your neighbours on the list.
Have fun!

1. What are two or three expectations you have of yourself?
To be as good a wife and mother as I can be.
To be a good friend
To follow my faith
 2. In what way does your outdoor space need sprucing up this spring?
The patio area needs a good clean up and the front garden needs some work.  I’d like to add some bird feeders this year as we no longer have our own cat.
3. According to this site (Roadtrippers), six of North America's most wondrous waterfalls are-Webster's Falls in Ontario, Upper Whitewater Falls in North Carolina, Havasu Falls in the Grand Canyon, Multnomah Falls in Oregon, The Lower Yellowstone Falls, and Niagara. Have you seen any on the list? Which one on the list would you most like to visit? Prettiest waterfall not on the list that you've seen in person?
Haven’t seen any of these.  We nearly included a visit to Niagara when we in the US but didn’t quite have enough time.  Can’t think of a specific waterfall but we did see some impressive ones when we did a Norwegian Fjord cruise.
4. Looking back, what's something you wish you'd done as a teenager?
Been more adventurous.
5. Ham...yes please or no thank you? If you said yes please which of the following do you like best-baked ham with all the trimmings, a ham and cheese sandwich, prosciutto with melon, a ham biscuit, a bowl of split pea and ham soup, or a slice of pizza topped with ham and pineapple?
I’d say yes please to a toasted ham and cheese sandwich.
6. Are you typical of your generation? How so?
Not so much, especially now I’m out of the rat race.  I don’t aspire to “have it all” and I certainly don’t care if my home looks like a magazine shoot or if I’m keeping up with the latest fashion trends.
7. April rolls in at the end of the week, and in keeping with that theme...'act the fool', 'nobody's fool', 'a fool's errand', 'could have fooled me'...which foolish idiom most recently applies to you? Explain.
Well I hope I’m “nobody’s fool” but I often make “a fool’s errand”  usually by going up in the house for something and then going down again with a totally different thing! lol
8.  Insert your own random thought here.
Our clocks changed last weekend so now we have more daylight and I’m loving that.  Spring keeps coming and going but the longer days suggest it will soon be here to stay and then we can look forward to summer.


  1. I'm finally adjusting to the time change...loving the longer days now. Bring on summer!

  2. The longer days are my favorite thing about spring. It has taken me a full two weeks to get used to the time moving forward, but I think I'm caught up now : ) Enjoy your day!

  3. Hi,
    I love reading your answers. It is fun to learn about people that live in a different country. :-)
    We just changed our clocks in March. It takes me awhile to adjust. I really wish we could leave them to Standard Time. Some of the states do not participate in the change of clocks. I know Arizona does not.

    Have a blessed week,

  5. I love it when we have more daylight! I don't care about keeping up with fashion at all anymore! It is such a relief

  6. I could have been more adventurous as a teenager. I was a good girl! I agree with you, I think at my age now I don't "need it all" and would like a "less is more" environment. I do love daylight savings time but it took me about a week this year to get use to it.

  7. I don't need it all either. Not loving the time change but it is what it is. Have to deal. Joyce always gives us good questions for the Hodgepodge!!

  8. The longer daylight hours are awesome! I tend to stay up later; however, the problem is I have a difficult time getting up for school the next morning. Have an awesome week!

  9. Oooo...a Norwegian Fjord sounds awesome!!! Happy belated hodgepodge!
