Lucky Lucky Hodgepodge…

If you’re in the mood for a little bit of Wednesday Hodgepodge, then it’s your lucky day!  Our hostess, Joyce, has, once again, provided the questions, and I’ve provided my version of the answers.  Here we go:

1. Do you play games of luck/chance for money? Have you ever played bingo for money? Visited a casino? Placed a bet on a horse? Bought a lottery ticket?

No to all of the above questions. ( I guess you could say I’ve led a sheltered life.)  Hubby, Ed, will buy an occasional lottery ticket, when the jackpot gets ridiculously large, but I won’t.  I can’t stand the thought of throwing  money away.

2. Will you be preparing and/or dining on the traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage meal this St. Patrick’s Day? Mashed-baked-hash browned-french fried…your favorite way to have potatoes?

No, I won’t be preparing the traditional meal for St. Patrick’s Day.  Since Christmas, I’ve eaten more than enough cabbage to last me a lifetime!  (Cabbage is one of the few “acceptable” foods on my new diet)  As for potatoes, it’s a tie between baked and fried–depending on what I’m eating them with.  Nothing compliments a hamburger like french fries, but I’d rather have a baked potato with my steak.  Potatoes are not “acceptable”, but I’ll eat them occasionally.

3. What’s the last thing you felt ‘green with envy’ over?

Several years ago, before I became a grandmother, I used to be quite envious of  friends and family who had grandchildren.  With three new additions to our family, plus another on the way, I don’t have to be envious anymore 🙂

4. What’s at the end of your rainbow?

A long, comfortable, happy retirement with Ed would be better than a pot of gold!

5. March 12th marks the anniversary of the death of Anne Frank (June 12, 1929-March, 1945). Anne’s diary detailing her time spent hiding from the Nazi’s during the war ranks as one of the best-selling books of all time. Besides your blog, do you keep any sort of diary or journal? Was this a habit you developed as a child or is journaling something new for you?

Yes, I began keeping a diary as a young teenager, and I’ve periodically kept a journal, of some kind, throughout my life.  Once I began my blog, three years ago, I stopped keeping a written journal.  I’ve always enjoyed writing my thoughts and what’s going on with me.

6. What’s an item in your home or closet that contains every color of the rainbow?

I don’t believe I have a garment that contains every color of the rainbow, but I do have several very colorful lounging dresses that I’ve been forced into wearing around the house, while dealing with my old “friend”,  candida.  One day, I’d love to be able to burn the ugly dresses  I’ve been forced to spend so much time wearing!!!   Eight months and counting, but  improving each week 🙂

7. Write a limerick with you as the subject. You can do it!! Just remember this is a family friendly blog…don’t make me get out my wooden spoon.

Once upon a time

I was asked to write a rhyme

I sat here half the night

‘Cause I couldn’t think what to write!


Look what I found in the chicken coop on Monday–the tiniest chicken egg I’ve ever seen!  Somebody laid two eggs on Monday because we have six hens and I found seven eggs!
