If it's Wednesday it must be Hodgepodge
1. Sunday was the first day of spring. So they say. Ahem.
What is your favorite outdoor springtime activity?
Picnics. I have not been on a real one in ages, but I love picnics on grassy fields with spring flowers all around.
2. Who would you want to come into your kitchen to cook dinner for you?
No one. I love to cook and my kitchen is not something I like to share.
3. When did you last fly a kite?
When my kids were little. I love to go to the kite flying day down at the beach though, should check the dates as it is coming up soon.
4. What topic puts you to sleep faster than anything?
Hard question. I love to learn new things, so I am most attentive when it comes to having discussions. That being said, entertainment news bores me. I could care less about who is dating whom and who is doing interviews with whom. They are people doing a job, no better than you or I, just getting paid more...Yawn!
5. Which flowers do you associate with specific people, places, or events?
Yellow roses make me think of my mother. White flowers are all about me. Purple little flowers are what my daughter was named after
6. What significant historical events took place during your elementary school days?
Oh man. I was born in 1969. During my elementary years many things took place. I guess the main thing that sticks out for me was the release of the hostages when Reagan took office.
7. Do you swear? Do you pseudo-swear? (You know crap, shoot, friggin'?)
Do I swear (LOL, hee hee , HA!) Ummmm yes! Mom always said that if she taught us kids one thing, it was how to swear and when to use it and when not to. I can cuss someone out without ever using a swear word if I need to as well. It depends on who I am around and what is going on at that point in time. Pseudo-swear..bah, if it needs to be said, say it correctly.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
My random thought for this week is coffee. I know when it comes to me this is not all that random, however I have a new toy.
A coffee grinder
I used it for the first time this morning and ground up Michigan Cherry Coffee beans.
And, as I skipped the random question last week, here is my second one.
I held a wine tasting party a couple of weeks ago. It is like a Tupperware Party, but where you get to try wine and then make purchases.
For hosting I was able to purchase a wine basket 1/2 price.
It came with:
Sommersville Cellars: Meritage Red Wine
Beth's: Chocolate chip cookies
Mille Lacs M.P. Company: Havarti with Pesto Cheese
Napa Valley Mustard Co.: Hot Sweet Mustard
Vineyard Collection: Focaccia Crisps
California Crispies: Herb almonds
and a lovely basket
Add a little meat, two glasses, and a cork screw... it will make a perfect picnic when the weather gets warmer.
