St. Patricks Random Dozen

1. On a scale of 1-10, how superstitious are you, honestly?
4 I think. Certain things I do by tradition and I like my traditions

2. Julius Caesar is quoted as saying, "I came, I saw, I conquered." Which circumstance or experience of yours does this saying best describe?

Not sure, this isn't how I look at challenges.

3. If I peeked in on your day like a mischievous little leprechaun, at what time would I most likely find you blogging?

Normally mornings, but today it is mid afternoon.

4. Re springing forward for Daylight Saving Time, is there anything you've ever been really early or really late for?

I showed up at the Women's expo an hour early on Sunday. We headed down for coffee and a muffin, so it all worked out.

5. What are you most looking forward to concerning Spring?

The budding of the trees. The world gets this light green tinge to it sudden;y one morning and you know spring is here.

6. Shamrocks are the national flower of Ireland and are picked on St. Patrick's Day and worn on the lapel or shoulder. Do you wear green on St. Patty's Day?

No, I wear Orange.

7. One of Caesar's assassins, Casca, said, "But, for my own part, it was Greek to me," which of course means he didn't understand something. Probably his own lines in the play. Anyway, what is something that is "Greek to you," something incomprehensible or indecipherable?

Jealousy, True jealousy. Be happy with what you have and if you are not then strive to better yourself or your situation so that you can have what you want. Being jealous of someone or something is silly. I can say you have something nice and mean it, I do not covet it.

8. Is March behaving more like a lion or a lamb where you live?

A lamb right now, beautiful weather. This weekend we are supposed to have the lion back. Ugh! More snow.

9. "An extra yawn one morning in the springtime, an extra snooze one night in the autumn is all that we ask in return for dazzling gifts. We borrow an hour one night in April; we pay it back with golden interest five months later." -Winston Churchill. If you had one extra hour per day every day, what would you do with it?

Relax. It seems I am kept busier these days than normal. I am ready to just put my feet up and knit.

10. Legend says that every Leprechaun has a pot of gold hidden deep in the Irish countryside. Aside from real gold or money, what material item would be in your dream pot of gold?

Well, that is an easy question for me...Yarn, pots and pots of yummy, woolly, silky, or any other fiber yarn.

11. "The best things are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of God just before you." Robert Louis Stevenson. Look around you right now and tell us about something essential or beautiful very near you that you take for granted every day.

My family. They know I love them but I do take for granted that they are here each day.
