Hodgepodge - Hoppy Easter!

Joining with Joyce for this week's Hodgepodge questions. She will be taking next week off so everyone needs to join in this week.

1. What are your plans for Easter? Are you cooking a big lunch or dinner? Dyeing eggs? Attending a sun rise service? Eating too much chocolate?

I will be ushering at two services at church (one Saturday night and one Sunday morning) then enjoying a service with Whitney. Who has decided to come home for the whole weekend even after being home last week for spring break. She must like us still.

2. What is something you feel too young to do?

Retire. Although I have started the countdown clock (6 years!) for my current job. One of the best perks of working at the same place my entire adult life.

3. "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs..."
Of the characteristics mentioned in the biblical definition of love which do you find most difficult to live out and why?

Keeps no record of wrong - I seem to keep tallies in my mind of many things even though I'm trying not too.

4. What's a springtime flower you associate with your childhood?

Tulips. I remember planting the bulbs in the fall and then hoping they would bloom in the spring.

5. Ever sung karaoke? If so, what's your go-to song? If not and you're given the opportunity, would you?

Years ago we bought Whitney a karaoke machine for Christmas and got 15 CD's worth of songs. I would try and do Kryptonite and These Boots are Made for Walking. I was horrible and was told to never do it again. I've never tried to do it in public.

6. What is something you keep in a basket?

Wii games are in a basket near the tv in the living room.

7. When was the last time you felt foolish?

I don't know if I've felt foolish, certainly nothing that I remember.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Whitney is participating in Relay for Life next week. She actually is running the social media for the race at her school. She has increased her fundraising goal twice and hopes to raise more. She has been super creative with her fundraising including selling things she owned and didn't need anymore. If anyone would like to help her out, I'm sure she would appreciate it. You can go directly to her page here.

  1. Hello, Nice to visit you today. That's a good idea to put the Wii games in a basket. Ours our stacked and then spread on the floor! lol

    Happy Easter!

  2. Good for Whitney! I had the same answer for #3...I'm such a grudge-holder!

  3. Keeps no record of wrongs is a hard one for me too! I have such a good memory for that sort of thing.....not a good trait for sure.

    I often feel foolish, but couldn't think of one example when I read the question.

    I love baskets and have lots of them, but find that I always seem to fill them up with junk and there goes any effort at organization!

  4. I love playing wii! Though i keep the games in a box ;) Happy Easter to you!

  5. Good luck to your daughter! I'm sure you'll enjoy having her home again this weekend. Having kids this age is nice : )

  6. Ask me what I DON'T keep in a basket. ::grinning::

    I have a gross of Longerberger baskets - willed to me by my Mom, the collector - and I have yet to find one that I can't put something in and they look nice too.

    I am just happy I didn't incur the expense of buying them myself.

    Best wishes to Whitney! And enjoy your services this weekend. Squirrel will be home too, after break, and we will go to services everyday beginning tomorrow night, through Sunday, then we will take her back after brunch. Busy, busy.

    Happy Easter to y'all.

  7. Hi, Tracy!
    Just wanted to stop by real quick and wish you and yours a BLESSED Easter!
