Springing into Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. The first day of spring is here...do you enjoy working in the yard? Weeding, raking, mowing, planting-your favorite springtime garden chore? How about your least favorite?
Nope.  Never have enjoyed in and I don't think I ever will.
2. What puts a spring in your step?
A good song, my boys doing well, a student making the /r/ sound.  I'm pretty easy to please!
3. Describe a time when you had to spring into action?
Gosh, with kids there are so many times you have to do that!  There was the time when OS had a seizure due to a spiked fever, or the time he pretended to be a vacuum cleaner and sucked up a grape into his windpipe.  We're still having to spring into action from time to time with MS.  YS has been our "easy child" so far:  I don't remember a time when I had to spring into action with him.  There was a time when he poked a pencil in his eye, but I was playing church volleyball when it happened, so CH was the one who had to spring into action.
4. We're having carrots for dinner...would you prefer yours raw or cooked?
Raw.  I'd much rather eat my veggies raw...except for potatoes.
5. Do you take the shampoos and other sundries from your hotel room when its time to check out?
Not usually.  It is nice to have  a couple of things, "just in case".
6. What's the most enjoyable team or club you've belonged to and what was it that made it so?
When we lived in SC, I had a great group of ladies that I played tennis with.  It was all for the love of the game.  I don't remember a whole lot of bickering...it was just ladies getting together and playing in the hot SC sun!
In my school days, I would say being a little sister to a fraternity is right up there with being in the band.  Oh my!  What good times we had!
7. Is cloning a sign of progress?
Cloning is a very scary thing.  I think we're messing with God.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
My "Birthday Bandit" has really made this birthday a special one!  I can't wait to see who it is.  Whoever she is, I hope she knows just how special she has made this birthday for me!


  1. I agree with you on #7.

    Did we miss your birthday? HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

  2. Nope, you haven't missed my birthday! It's not until next week!

  3. Ohhh... a birthday bandit. How fun! :)

    You sound like me with the gardening...

    Yep - kids have you springing to action DAILY, right?

  4. Both your blog and the one I read just before yours used this meme today. Definitely agree about cloning--it's a scary thing to me too. I also dislike yard work and digging in the dirt--for any reason. I'm all too likely to meet a bug! Have to confess that I take the toiletries from the hotel room but send most of what I take to St. Francis Inn where some of our sisters serve meals to the homeless or one of our sisters who works with women in prison.

  5. OK. My b-day is on the 30th. Are we twins? I agree with you on cloning and yard work! (Though right now I need to clean up my mess of a yard!)

  6. I've missed reading your answers each week. Thanks for making me smile today!

  7. Yes, I take the toiletries from hotel rooms when we leave. I keep them in a basket for our overnight guests to use. The Granddolls love picking items from this basket when they visit.

  8. Good answer with a "song", didn't think of that one. With raw carrots I like Ranch dressing.
    Tennis, how awesome. I have never played. I want a Birthday Bandit!!

  9. Had to laugh about the potato comment. Who would eat them raw, eh? LOL
