Wednesday Hodgepodge

Joining Joyce at From this side of the Pond




1.  This week marks the beginning of Lent...will you be giving something up or adding anything to your life during this season of the year? 
I usually add to my life during this time and try to give up something. Basically try to be a better version of me during this time. 
2. The day before Lent is Shrove Tuesday... tradition states you eat pancakes on this day. In some parts of the world Shrove Tuesday is actually known as 'pancake day'. How do you like your pancakes? Or don't you? 
I always thought it was Fat Tuesday! I certainly indulged a little yesterday. I like pancakes but would rather have french toast. 

3.  I'm sure there are many, but what's one love song you really love?
Hard to pick one...I'm really loving Bruno Mars lately....It will rain 
Also Michael Buble....Haven't met you yet

4.  What are some things you do to let others know you love them?
Tell them, show them by doing little things for them....cooking for them, respecting them...it's all so easy.

5.  Roses...red, pink, or do you prefer another color? Can you recall the last time someone gave you flowers? Given your choice would you like to open the door and see a dozen red roses, a dozen purple tulips, or a dozen pink peonies?

Love red....but tulips in any color are nice too and peonies.....all time favorite! Any thing but a carnation!

6.  President's Day will be celebrated in America next Monday. Does US Presidential history and trivia interest you?  Many Presidential homes are open to the public and offer guided tours...Monticello (Jefferson's home), Mount Vernon (Washington's home), Montpelier (James Madison's home), Hyde Park (FD Roosevelt's home) andThe White House (home to the sitting President) to name just a few. Of those listed which would you be most interested in touring?  Why?

The White House for sure......why? Why not...it's the White House...plus Michelle Obama has amazing style I'd love to see how she mixed new with old. 

7.  Are you good at keeping secrets?
Depends on the secret.....

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
Opinions......why is it only some people can have them and if you don't agree with them people hold it against you.....deep thoughts I know! Taking deep breaths these days.....

I'm so disappointed in America right now. It seems we cannot disagree anymore without getting nasty and personal. Not just about politics either...makes me so sad.

I think that's something I miss about the ex-pat community. There was no expectation that everyone would think alike so we seemed to approach each other with more courtesy.

I like your comments!

I always thought it was Fat Tuesday too! Who knew? I love Bruno Mars too. He was on Ellen yesterday and my gosh, he's so NICE! Super down-to-earth.

great answer for #7
I've been on the White House tour many years ago. But to be a guest at the White House would be cool no matter who was President.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I agree, French Toast is a favorite of mine too! Bruno Mars is fun and I do love Michael Buble a lot! I agree 100% with you, anything but a carnation. I don't like them at all. (You got my blood boiling over that one - LOL)

I am a French toast girl too!

Kwana said...

I like your idea of adding something good. I too would like to try and be a better version of me during this season. oh and get this next book DONE. LOL.

Have a very happy Valentine's Day!

I'm not a big fan of carnations. Poor carnations.

lisaroyhandbags said...

I agree with your thought about opinions - I've had that happen so many times! (mostly with my mother). I don't care for carnations either. White tulips or pale pink peonies are my fave. Hope your Valentine's Day was a romantic one xo

I enjoyed reading your comments.
We call it Pancake Day in England (Shrove Tuesday) I made pancakes for breakfast this year & we had them with lemon. I felt quite fat afterwards as we had 3 each!!!!!!!

I am so with you on carnations. I don't know what it is about them, but I just don't like them. They look too much like tissue paper flowers to me.

Peggy said...

Nice to meet you! I've had fun reading others' posts to Wednesday Hodge Podge. I think we are definitely sisters...I'm definitely the older one! :-)
