I'm linking up today with Joyce and all the bloggers who participate in Wednesday’s Hodgepodge.
Today's questions have to do with spring, sweet things, tourist spots, and notable quotes by women.
|1. What's the first image that comes to mind when you hear the word 'spring'? Which phrase best describes the season of spring where you live right now (today)-sprung! almost there, or still waiting?
“More snow” probably best describes Colorado when describing spring. Today the weather is gloriously beautiful with a current temperature of 54 degrees in my town and we may reach 70 by week’s end, but March is notoriously known as our “snowiest month” so I keep the boots and sweaters handy. As for what image comes to mind when I think of spring, that would be Easter.
Sister and I had a Slinky that we enjoyed as little girls. We played with on a wooden staircase in our house. As for what spring-thing might need replacing in my home, we’re okay in that department (as far as I know!).
“The only good thing about January is that it comes to an end.” That, from my friend Denise. Thankfully this year January was kind to both my friend and me, but some years ago she said this and it helped me have a sense of humor when that was needed.
How to reply to this question! While I don't have all the answers, I don't have any big questions right now.
I enjoy sweet things just as much as the next person, but since I began eating gluten- and dairy-free and mostly raw vegan over a year ago, my sweet tooth has learned to appreciate “savory” a little more.
I guess I’d like more work I enjoy doing. I don’t like to be at loose ends between tasks.
Yes, I’ve been to Texas and about 11 years ago I spent many weeks there assisting some of my family during a health crisis. I love going to the San Antonio River Walk and would love to try out several of their restaurants as well as to ride the boats in the canal.
My husband's employer sent us a letter regarding our health and life benefits and confirmation of coverage. As if turning 65 isn't painful enough, they informed us that my life insurance coverage is increasing nearly $12 every month as a result of this milestone birthday. I guess they figure my time is short so they'd better milk all the money out of us while they can!
