Wednesday Hodgepodge

Joining Joyce @From This Side Of The Pond TODAY!

1. April showers bring May flowers or so the saying goes. Are you blooming where you're planted as we begin the month of May?

Spring is slowly among it's way here.....trees are bare but close to popping! We have had rain followed by more rain...the hopes for the sun shining is days away. 
2. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being no big deal, and 10 being full scale panic, rank your fear of spiders.

I'm a 5 ! I can kill them but afterwards usually get the willies! Also depends how big they are! 

3. May is National Salad Month (who knew???)...besides lettuce, what are two must-have ingredients in your favorite salad?

Tomatoes and peppers....or black olives. 
4. I mentioned on my blog last week that my Daughter1 will be moving to Washington State after she is married. Of the following sites in the Northwest, which would you most like to see in person-Crater Lake (Oregon), Seattle (Washington), Vancouver (British Columbia), San Juan Islands (Washington),  Mt. Rainer (Washington) Oregon Coast (Oregon), Mt. St. Helens (Washington), or Olympic National Park (Washington)

Of all those I haven't been to Vancouver and Crater Lake so either would be nice. My favorite is the San Juan Islands.....she will love visiting those, even for just the day! 

5. This coming weekend marks the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby...when did you last race (literally or figuratively) to cross a finish line?

It's been so long I can even think....unemployment gives you a lot of time to get things done.
6. What is something little you love?

I love red hots.

7. Would you say you are more of a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learner? Elaborate.

Kinesthetic for me I can watch and listen but actually doing physically is the way I learn. 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

18 days until Katelyn is home for the summer.....I can't wait! It's going to be a quick and busy summer for her. It's the last one she can work until after she graduates. From spring semester on she will start her grad program and go year round with little breaks. She really  needs to work day and night cause the girl can spend! If she is reading this she surely is rolling her eyes at me! 

Happy Wednesday!

Let the count down begin until Miss Katelyn comes home! Yahoo! I don't like spiders either and once I see one it is hard for me to sleep in fear that they might be crawling on me!

I hope Katelyn has a great summer. Well earned time off I'm sure. Enjoy your Wednesday.

spring…(even if it rains all the time) is such a wonderful time of renewal…hope your summer is wonderful! (always good to have your lovely daughter home)

We're having a lot of rain here this spring as well. The grass turned really green over the weekend.

I don't like spiders either.

It seems like the last couple of weeks I have had to kill a few in the house which is really rare. I have seen two tarantulas in our area on the road and I would die if we had one in the house. Those are good additions to a salad. Only 18 days, that is awesome cause she was just there for Easter. Let the countdown begin.....


I'm not crazy about spiders either. Know you are looking forward to your daughter being home.

I love red hots too : ) I don't think I realized how far behind we are with sprintime weather. I was in SC for a few days, and everything is so green there. Our trees are also still bare. I'm ready for the weather to change!!

It is raining again in Illinois ... I wait for warmer temperatures.
Enjoy your time!
