Wednesday Hodgepodge

Joining Joyce at From this side of Pond

1. Do you play games of luck/chance for money? Have you ever played bingo for money? Visited a casino?  Placed a bet on a horse? Bought a lottery ticket?

It's been years since I've visited a casino, never bet on a horse or bought a lottery ticket...I've talked and thought about it but never. 
2.  Will you be preparing and/or dining on the traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage meal this St. Patrick's Day? Mashed-baked-hash browned-french fried...your favorite way to have potatoes?

No I grew up having Corn Beef and cabbage but not really a fan and either is hubby....probably have some green beer and a Guinness cup cake from the cupcake shop Katelyn worked at. favorite way for potatoes...Mashed! 

3. What's the last thing you felt 'green with envy' over? 

I'm typically not an envious person, but there are days I envy the girl I work with hair...mine is so thin and lifeless...I'd kill for long thick locks! 

4.  What's at the end of your rainbow?

My daughter's smiling face!

5. March 12th marks the anniversary of the death of Anne Frank (June 12, 1929-March, 1945).  Anne's diary detailing her time spent hiding from the Nazi's during the war ranks as one of the best selling books of all time.  Besides your blog, do you keep any sort of diary or journal?  Was this a habit you developed as a child or is journaling something new for you?

Just this blog....tried journaling many times and never really took. 
6. What's an item in your home or closet that contains every color of the rainbow?

I have a pretty floral scarf that pretty much covers every color out there! 

7.  Write a limerick with you as the subject.  You can do it!!  Just remember this is a family friendly blog...don't make me get out my wooden spoon. 

My name is Kathy
I can sometimes be sappy 
but most the time I'm pretty happy!
 8.  Insert your own random thought here.

This time change killing anyone else....omg...the mornings especially! Even with a second cup of  joe...I do love it being lighter later. It almost feels like Spring is near...except for the snow flakes I see coming down and the bitter temps. 

Katelyn is coming home in 9 days !! I can't wait!!

Happy Wednesday!

I'll have both girls here for Easter, but daughter1 just for the weekend. My youngest will be home almost a week and I can't wait to enjoy some down time with her. Have fun with your girl!

I'm struggling in the mornings too, but the longer days give me hope spring is just around the corner.

I love this and you Limerick is fantastic!

Love the limerick! I'm not a huge fan of corned beef and cabbage either - unfortunately all those years in Dublin didn't turn me onto Guinness either! Oh to have nice thick hair - Dubai's water has killed my hair {it's a huge issue here with hair loss}. Our clocks don't change here so no adjustment needed which is great - I'm not a morning person. xo

I don't buy lottery tickets either. Love Guinness cupcakes. May have some lamb stew. I kept a journey as a child, but my blog serves that purpose now.

April said...

My oldest girl will be coming home from college for my whole family will be together, again...I can't wait! I can get adjusted to the time change, either...I'm having a tough time waking up!

Debbie said...

Much as love it being lighter longer I am struggling a little bit in the morning. 6 is coming much faster, haha. Enjoy your day!

Mark said...

Love your limerick, and as an Irishman, I have no defense for what they call food. Corn beef and cabbage, nasty.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

That cupcake sounds pretty good!
Love the end of your rainbow.
Enjoyed your limerick and have a wonderful time with Katelyn.

I found the dog races more fun than the horses but I have not been to either in many years.
At the end of the rainbow is Ireland - they have lots of rainbow over there.

Jill said...

I enjoy the longer days too. It's just hard to get up when it's still dark outside!


I do not like corned beef and cabbage either. Terrible for an Irish girl to say, ey?

Glad all is well in your corner of the planet. Spring is in the air for sure! We have been enjoying long sunny days and the snow is melting, although I have to admit we got off easy this winter. Not too much snow to complain about like last year!

I too love scarves. They accessorize wonderfully!

Tami said...

I love with spring starts because the sun is shinning more. It's hard to get up when it's still dark outside. I get the winter blues. Hope all is well with you and the family. xoxo
