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.

Random:

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:
