An “Egg-stra” Special Hodgepodge…


As usual, another week has flown by.  Can you believe it’s almost time to celebrate Easter?  Actually, we’ve already been doing some early celebrating, but I’m getting ahead of myself!

As always, thanks to Joyce, for another great Hodgepodge.  Here are this week’s questions:

1. What’s a word that describes your life?  In a nutshell, I’m retired!

A word you wish described your life?  Younger, but I guess you can’t be retired and young at the same time, or can you?

2. Back in my day we had a lot less, but we appreciated whatever we had a whole lot more!

3. When it comes to takeout are you more likely to opt for Italian, Mexican, or Chinese food?  I’ll say Italian because sometimes we order pizza.

Does a typical week at your house include takeout?  Sometimes, but not always.

4. Think about the people you most respect. What is it about them that earned your respect?  Their dependability.

5. What’s something your friends might see and say is ‘so you’?  That’s a tough one, but I’ll say “a black PT Cruiser” because I’ve had mine for seventeen years, and I still love it!  I think I’m the only one in town who [still] owns one.


Ed and I will be leaving on our trip [to visit the replica of Noah’s Ark] bright and early, the day after Easter.  Because of this, our family got together to do a little early celebrating, last weekend.  The weather was ‘picture perfect’ and we were able to spend the entire afternoon outside!  The grandchildren played, dyed eggs, then made an attempt to find 350 plastic eggs.  As usual, they didn’t find them all! (Would you believe, a few days ago, Ed just found an egg from last year?)

Ed and I followed Saturday’s festivities with two wonderful [Palm Sunday] services at church, on Sunday.  I almost feel like Easter is already over, but, thankfully, it’s not!  I’m looking forward to Sunday’s Easter services, followed by a fantastic meal at our oldest son’s house, followed by a four-day church trip!

Here are a few pictures from last Saturday:

  3. I have not seen a PT Cruiser in a long time. Your family weekend celebration sounds like a lot of fun. Enjoy your trip and I’ll look forward to hearing all about it when you’re back. Happy Easter!

  4. It looks like you all had a great time. Looking forward to what you think about the Ark exhibit. Happy Easter!

  5. Enjoy that trip to Noah’s Ark Encounter! I hope you have a wonderful Easter.

  6. I mentioned you and your MEGA-egg hunt just the other day. I still can’t believe you hid 350 eggs!! That is dedication! I’m excited about your trip and can’t wait to hear about it when you return! Happy Easter to you and yours!

  7. You, your daughter, and her daughter certainly look alike.

    I can’t believe how old your youngest grandson is. I remember when he was born. Time certainly flies when I’m reading your blog.

  8. I love your answer to question #2. Several of our fellow bloggers went with the state of television during our youth, no remote controls, only thee networks, etc.
    Your family Easter photo is wonderful. Thank you for your visit to my blog and for your kind comments.
    I wish you and Ed a Happy Easter and a terrific, safe trip to Noah’s Ark. I look forward to your report afterward and perhaps some photos.

  9. I think we all want to be younger at times but with the knowledge that we have when we retire! It just doesn’t happen that way, does it? We live and learn…..
    This is kind of funny, when Joyce said Italian I was thinking who gets Italian to go!! Never gave a thought to pizza being Italian, pizza is from Chicago….LOL
    Enjoy your trip and I’m so happy that your celebration of Easter went well.
