Wednesday Hodgepodge – April Fools Edition
Once again Joyce has come up with some timely and interesting questions for this week’s Wednesday Hodgepodge. I always look forward to Wednesday’s Hodgepodge questions, and since I missed last week, I’m really looking forward to this week!
1. April rolls in at the end of this week and in celebration of that infamous date (April 1st) answer this question-What is something foolish you've done?
I’m not much of a fool player for April Fools Day, mostly because I can’t keep a straight face in order to pull off the prank.
2. With April comes Easter and that classic edible treat known as Peeps...so tell me...what's your favorite way to fix/eat chicken? That wasn't what you were expecting, was it? I 'fooled' you. teehee.
I love Ina Garten’s Chicken Picata … it’s DH’s favorite way for me to fix chicken. I think I’m going to have to set out some chicken to thaw so I can fix this tomorrow night!
3. What's the best museum you've ever visited? Or your favorite? Or the one you'd most like to visit?
Probably my most favorite is the Quilt Museum in Paducah, KY.
4. You know what they say about April showers...what's your preference-a shower or a bath?
Definitely a shower. The master bath in our house has only a shower, but that is definitely NOT a drawback for us. If I need/want to take a bath, I can always use the tub in the guest bathroom.
5. "Absence makes the heart grow fonder"...fact or fiction? Why?
Fact. When we’re apart/away from someone/something we love, we tend to focus with longing on the wonderful memories that often are forgotten when together, facing the reality of everyday life.
6. What's your favorite product made/grown in your home state/province?
My favorite product from Illinois is corn … I do love me some homegrown corn on the cob in the summer!
7. What is going on in the world today that affects you the most?
What affects me most, I suppose, is the rising cost of gasoline. Being retired and on a very fixed income, these dramatic cost increases have to come at the expense of something else in the budget.
But what moves me the most is the continuing story from Japan.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
It’s snowing again today … SNOWING!!!! Ugh! Ok, to be honest, it’s great big flakes falling, covering all the trees, bushes, etc. … it’s actually very pretty. And it’s above freezing so I’m sure it won’t be hanging around too long. But still … winter, you’ve outworn your welcome! We want spring!
