Wednesday Hodgepodge - 27 April 2016

1. This is the last Hodgepodge in April. Share something you learned this month.

I learned that there needs to be a few more hours in the day to do an A to Z Challenge without getting overwhelmed.

2. It's National Poetry Month, and we all know you can't escape an April Hodgepodge without a little poetry. Keeping the first line as is, change the rest of the wording in this familiar rhyme to make it your own - 'Hickory Dickory Dock...

Hickory, dickory, dock,
I cannot find my sock;
The house is a mess.
Oh, it's stuck to my dress.
I got a static electric shock!
Thanks to David for that little ditty!

3. What were one or two rules in the home you grew up in? Growing up, did you feel your parents were strict? Looking back do you still see it that way?

"Don't run in and out" and "don't slam the door" are two that stand out to me. No, my parents weren't particularly strict. My mama lacked consistency in her expectations, but I never saw her as strict, just confusing. I still see it the same way today as I did then.

4. Tell us about a kitchen or cooking disaster or mishap you've experienced. Do you have many from which to choose?

I can't tell it anywhere near as good as David can. Please see his post: That's the Good Stuff

5. Plant a kiss, plant doubt, plant a tree, plant yourself somewhere...which on the list have you most recently planted?

I would have to say a kiss, but we also recently planted tomatoes and a bean.

6. What's your most worn item of clothing this time of year? Are you tired of it?

I would have to say my sandals. I wear them all the time and, no, I'm not tired of them. I'm dreading having to get new ones!

7. I'm wrapping up the A-Z Blog Challenge this month and our Hodgepodge lands on letter W. What's one word beginning with W that describes you in some way? How about a word to describe your home, also beginning with W?

The same word works for both right now - WRECKED! :)

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Last week was rather exciting with all of the rain and flooding, but things were starting to dry out at a pretty good rate. We got more rain for two days in a row, so things are a bit squishy again. I just hope this May doesn't end up as wet as last May. One flood a year is enough, thank you!

My post about the flood last week: S is for Say a Prayer

    1. David says thanks, Denise. I thank you, too. :)

      Have a blessed day!

  2. Don't run in and out and don't slam the door were rules in our house too. And yet...LOL I didn't think about shoes for an answer to #6. I could have put my flip flops on that one. I didn't try the A-Z Challenge this year. I think it just got away from me this time around. It's a good exercise to keep us writing though! Have a great weekend!

    1. We still managed to mess up on those rules, too, eh? haha

      I think that you probably have a lot more on your mind than a blog challenge, with a first grand-baby coming and all! I wouldn't be able to settle my mind enough for a challenge, either. :) I look forward to reading the announcement about the baby's arrival, that is, if you'll be able to steady your hands enough to write it. :)

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a blessed day!
