Wednesday Hodgepodge

It's Wednesday, so it's time for the Hodgepodge...because I can't think of anything to blog about on my own!

1. William Shakespeare's birthday is celebrated on April 23rd...when did you last read Shakespeare? What's your favorite Shakespeare play? 
The only play that I think I've actually seen is Romeo & Juliet.  Sad, but true.  I did see this in October when CH & I went to London:
 Sadly, there were no plays going on when we were there.
2. What food(s) would you recommend a foreign visitor try when they visit your home country?
Oh my.  Barbecue, maybe?  Moon pies for sure!
3. What's a lie you often tell yourself?
My boys are perfect. 
4. What's something you're good at that might surprise us? Remember this is a family friendly blog!
Oh, gosh.  I have no idea!  I'm pretty much an open book...y'all already know all of my secrets!
5. Who is your favorite animal character from a book?
Geez, Joyce...could you have made the questions any harder this week?  Maybe I should've thought of something to blog about on my own!
I'll have to say Tigger from Winnie the Pooh, because I just can't think of anything else right now!
6. April showers bring May you have a green thumb?
7. Speaking of rainy days...which one of the following activities would you most want to spend time doing on a rainy day-

sort photos and create albums
bake cookies
read a good book
hold an all-day movie marathon
organize closets, cupboards, or bookshelves
try a new recipe
fix something that needs fixing
Hold an all-day movie marathon.  Yep, I'm real exciting like that!
8. Insert your own random thought here. 
TCAPS are this week, which means that speech therapy is hit or miss.  I have to administer the test to small groups and/or read-aloud, as well as help with make-ups.  It's a nice break from the routine, and it signals that the end of the school year is almost here!  (3 more Mondays!)  At one of my schools, every student was given a cap with a big "T" on it.  (T-CAP...get it???) Since the students' scores factor into the teachers' evaluations, a lot of the teachers have been a lot more stressed this year.  This has been circulating around:



  1. Oh, BBQ is one food I definitely have a weakness for! Love it with corn on the cob and baked beans. Best of luck with the testing this week. I remember how nice it was to get breaks from performing speech therapy all the time. Enjoy it while you can!

  2. Ha-I love the cartoon : ) Love your photo from The Globe!

  3. Your answer to #6 made me smile (due to it bluntness!)

  4. I am with you on #4 - couldn't think of a thing! I never thought about any of the Winnie the Pooh animals ... I've read several Pooh story books to the grands. 3 more Mondays? Yay!

  5. I agree, this weeks questions were hard! You had great answers though. Good luck with the tcaps.

  6. HAHA! the Hunger games shout out is funny!

    Moon pies... UGH!!!! haha! Anything marshmellow makes me gag, but it does make me think of the south

  7. Moon pies are a great choice. I think that they are really American. I'm sure we all lie to ourselves about our perfect children. But in my eyes, mine are. Have a wonderful day.

  8. I forgot about moon pies. Enjoyed your answers! I thought the questions made us think this week too. And I am glad to see that I am not the only one that has not read Shakespeare, there were quite a few of us.
    until next time... nel

  9. Enjoyed stopping by today. I'm finally back to blogging regularly!! I'll be having barbecue tonight before we go to the OKC Thunder game! - I think I'm also with you on the rainy day. But knowing me, I'd feel guilty about it if I hadn't already taken care of the "have to's."

  10. BBQ indeed!

    I had a green thumb up north when I lived there. I am slowly learning what I won't kill down here.

  11. I love your #3 and I agree - my boys are perfect too.

  12. That picture is too funny!!!!

    And I'm a tad jealous. Three more weeks? Really???

  13. I thought they were a little hard too. I had to ask family members what they would say on a few of them! I will always choose a movie marathon. Summers coming!
