In case you missed it yesterday, I'm declaring next week Spring Break in the Hodgepodge, so no Wednesday Hodgepodge on March 15th. Technically that's not spring, but it's close enough, and since Daughter1 will be visiting from the west coast the time is right. The Hodgepodge will be back in action the following week, March 22nd.
If you've answered this week's questions add your link at the end of my post. Be sure you leave a comment for the blogger linking before you because we didn't hit Edition 300 without the friendly encouragement of our neighbors here on From This Side of the Pond.
I kind of 'obsess' and want all the details to be perfect when I'm hosting an event. I think it's good to aim high, have a plan B and sometimes a C, and in the end to enjoy what I've planned, perfect or not.
2. What's something you find perfectly ridiculous?
Denying we have a new President, the endless outrage and protesting over every single solitary thing, and this season of The Bachelor to name just a few.
3. What's a skill you've developed by way of that old fashioned saying, 'practice makes perfect?
Quite a few things I guess, but cooking would be one where this phrase certainly applies. I find if I don't cook regularly my skills in the kitchen get rusty. The more I cook the better I manage timing and technique.
4. What's your idea of a perfect breakfast?
This is a tough one (the food questions always are) because my answer depends on my mood. A Saturday morning omelette cooked (and cleaned up) by the hubs is usually pretty close to perfect.
5. What's a trip, holiday, vacation, or day outing you've taken that you'd rate a perfect 10? Tell us why.
This question is even harder for me to answer than the food question, because we've experienced a lot of 10s in our travels. One that popped into my head immediately was a ski vacation we took in 2005 to the fairy tale village of Seefeld Austria.
Stunning scenery, wonderful food, lots of time spent out of doors, and my favorite-family togetherness.
It was as close to perfect as a vacation can be.
6. What quote or saying perfectly sums up your life right now? If you can't do perfect, how about one that comes close?
'Collect moments, not things'
7. How would you spend $300 today?
I'd likely spend it on something for the house or quite possibly my grandbaby coming this summer.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
My mom arrived today to spend a few days here at the lake with me, and also to attend a baby shower honoring her very first great grandchild. I've had so much fun planning the shower and look forward to sharing some of the fun details soon.
