Hoppin’ Into Another Hodgepodge…

Once again, I find myself hoppin’ into another edition of the Wednesday Hodgepodge, brought to us courtesy of Joyce @ From This Side Of The Pond.  Thanks, Joyce!  With both of us now having retired hubbys at home, I appreciate all that you do even more 🙂   Here are today’s questions:

1. This coming weekend is Palm Sunday, which marks the beginning of Holy Week. Do you celebrate Easter in your home? What was your favorite Easter tradition as a child?

We’ve always celebrated Easter in our home, and still do. We’ve done it all– colored eggs, attended Easter services, experienced annual visits from the Easter Bunny, cooked the noon meal, and hosted the afternoon egg hunt.  It makes me tired just thinking about all of the activities!

As a  child, my favorite Easter tradition was probably coloring Easter eggs, although I enjoyed getting a new Easter outfit, too.

2. George Weinberg is quoted as saying, ‘Hope never abandons you, you abandon it.‘ Agree or disagree? Share your own thoughts on the word hope.

I agree with Mr. Weinberg.  I believe there is always Hope, but, sometimes, when the going gets extremely tough, people tend to forget this and give up.  My thoughts on hope?  “God can.”

3. Weigh in with a yay or nay on the traditional Easter candies. A solid milk chocolate bunny? Cadbury Creme Eggs? Peeps? Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs? Jellybeans? Coconut Cream Eggs? Of the candies listed, which one would you most like to find in your Easter basket?

Solid milk chocolate bunny – Yay (especially if it’s Dove chocolate)  

Cadbury Creme Eggs – Nay

Peeps – Yay

Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs – Yay

Jellybeans – Yay (especially black or orange ones!)

Coconut Cream Eggs – Never tried them

Just put a Dove chocolate bunny and a few jellybeans in my basket, and I’ll be happy, but, actually, Brach’s ( marshmallow) chicks and bunnies are my favorite Easter candy.

4. When did you last feel ‘like a kid in a candy store’?

The last time I felt like a ‘kid in a candy store’ was the last time I visited Hobby Lobby.  I love that store, and I always enjoy bringing home something from there, too!  It’s been about six or seven weeks since I was last there, and I bought a Valentine’s Day decoration for the front porch.

 5. What’s something you know you do differently than most people? Does that bother you? Does it bother other people?

I write with my left hand, but I crochet and use the scissors with my right hand.  It doesn’t bother me or anyone else, to my knowledge.  I’m just thankful I don’t have to use left-handed scissors.

6. Palm Springs CA, Palm Beach FL, or the PALMetto State…of the three mentioned, which sunny spot would you most like to visit right now? Which have you visited at one time or another?

I’d like to visit Palm Beach FL. because I love Florida, I love the beach, and Florida isn’t far away from Georgia, where I live.  Actually, to tell the truth, I’d be thrilled to visit any beach right about now!!!

I’ve visited parts of the PALMetto State, a few times, Hilton Head and Charleston, to be exact, and I loved both places.

7. If you could change the length of a day would you lengthen it or shorten it? Tell us why.

If I could change the length of a day, I’d lengthen it because I’m getting  slower as I age, and there never seems to be enough hours in a day to accomplish all of the things I want to do.  Perhaps a few more hours would help!


Spring is here!

  1. I love Hobby Lobby too. We don’t have one anywhere nearby which is sad. Or maybe a good thing : ) It looks so springlike at your house. I’m jealous!! It was 18 when I went to the gym this morning. I do think we’re supposed to warm up a bit next week. Here’s hoping!

  2. Oh, my goodness…I always find something to purchase at Hobby Lobby, whether I truly need it or not! Love your cute Easter decor!

  3. I love your decorations!

  4. I, too, LOVE your decorations!! I also enjoyed your Hodgepodge! It was a fun bunch of questions (well, always).

  5. Yes, you are ready for Easter! Lovely inside and out. I also agree Hobby Lobby is a very fun place to lose ones self for sure.

  6. I always enjoy how you go all out for Easter and I know you have those huge hunts at your home too! Your right about the Dove chocolate, it’s my favorite chocolate next to Reese’s PB cups. Hobby Lobby is a fun store. So much to see.

  7. Thanks for visiting my blog. Today was much better, thank you…I stayed home all day! I hope the adjustment to retired life is going well.

  8. It’s certainly springtime at your house! So delightful!

    I’m with you … I’m so needing some beach time. I’ve got to wait until May … I’m hoping that you won’t have to wait so long.

  9. I enjoyed your answers….time is swiftly passing for me too…
    You need some Hobby Lobby therapy….I ran by there last week with my granddaughter, didn’t really browse though….
    My Hodge Podge will be up on Saturday…I post dated it because I’ve done a post today already.
