Wednesday Hodgepodge





1. It's that most wonderful time of the year...tax season! Do you complete your own returns or farm that job out to the professionals?

We farm out the job only because of our house in Utah and NY taxes are so new to us. In  the past we always did them ourselves. 

2. This next question comes from Kansas Bob...he posed it in his response to something I asked in an earlier Wednesday post and I asked him if I could add it to the Hodgepodge some day. Today's the day....

Which do you think has changed you more-love or pain?

Pain for sure....it comes at you in all different directions when you least expect it. 

3. Tangerine Tango has been named color of the year for 2012. Your thoughts? Would I find this color anywhere in your house? How about in your closet? If not, will you be adding this color to your life in some way in 2012? If you're not sure what tangerine tango looks like clickhere.

I love the color...you won't find it in my house but I have several articles of clothing that color...but I just call it orange! 

4. Are you a collector? What do you collect and does it get admired, used, and/or dusted regularly?

I collect blue and white dishes and such....I also have several Nesting Dolls all displayed, dusted recently...and a whole bunch of rooster stuff. 



5. February is National Heart Month...besides a green salad what is one tasty heart healthy dish you like to prepare?

Do Cheerios count? Okay I like roasting veggies on the grill with a little olive oil and salsa Salmon...I think that is heart healthy. 

6. When was the last time you had car trouble?

It's been several months my heater went out in my car, before that dead battery and before that my tires kept leaking air! 

7. Have you been more demanding on yourself lately or less? Is that a good trend?

Less demanding...my attitude is there is always tomorrow! Probably not a good trend...but it all gets done! 

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Happy February!! Here is my day one photo a day for this month....
My view today...
My office, my space, my little getaway....we have a bonus room above our garage and on one end is an office area....perfect spot with french doors that close off from TV room....it's where Sophie and I spend our mornings! 


Have a wonderful Wednesday! Stop by Joyce's From this side of the Pond for more Hodgepodge!

I like your Wednesday hodgepodge! Yours and Sophie's corner is a nice place to be every morning. I have my little office off the familoy room a place in our basement, yet I choose to balance the laptop on my lap in the family room. LOL... xo

Your meal is heart healthy - and yummy, too!
I also collect rooster/chicken stuff.
"Your space" is so organized ! -- especially for someone who takes it easy.

Your office is so sweet. You and Sophie are lucky you have a place to go. But your DESK is TOO clean. LOL. Also crazy about your nesting dolls. I used to collect them. But then gave them all away, except for two sets. SALMON is yummy however you fix it and heart healthy too. Great choice. Enjoy your day. Take care.

Your get away room is lovely.

Cheerios - yes one of my favorites - just plain ones but I'll add fruit.
random thought - relaxed is good but not so in jean sizes. What's up with that?

Kimberly said...

Love your pup!!!

Brenda said...

Your office space is wonderful!

Cathy said...

I love the photo of your work area. I could so love a space like that.

My mom has a lot of antique blue and white dishes.

You must be busy because I think this is the first time your header hasn't changed the first day of the month. How is work going? Have you tried roasted green beans? They are my new favorite. Happy Febrary!

You talk about healthy eating, and I'm scarfing up Triscuits (at 11:23pm). Oh well...

Dropping the taxes off tomorrow...
