I always look forward to Wednesdays … because that means it’s time for Wednesday Hodgepodge! Wednesday Hodgepodge is a fun meme … 7 totally unrelated questions … and a random thought of our own. If you’d like to join in, please do … just click the button above.
1. What reveals more about a woman-her refrigerator or her purse?
Her purse – other family members may add or remove things from the refrigerator, but nobody messes with her purse.
2. When was the last time you went to the zoo? Where? What's your favorite zoo animal?
I’m trying to remember if I made it to the zoo last summer … I usually get invited to go along with DD & the Ts, but I don’t know that we were able to get there last summer. Definitely going to need to make sure that it happens this summer! I have always enjoyed the penguins, and all the more so now since T#4’s favorite animal is the penguin.
3. What social issue fires you up?
Fiscal irresponsibility by our governments.
4. Are you a coupon clipper? If so, are you extreme?
No. DH does the shopping, and I used to be faithful in clipping coupons … but he’d always forget to take them along and we’d end up with a drawer full of expired coupons.
5. What is one of your favorite souvenirs brought back from your travels?
That’s a toughie. I always bring some kind of souvenir from our travels … pieces of granite from the Low Country beaches, a lot of Tshirts, a jigsaw puzzle, seashells … I’m not sure that I could identify one as a favorite.
6. Lemon meringue or key lime?
Key lime, of course. We were in the heart of key lime country when we visited southern Florida a couple of months ago (and of course, had some key lime pie!).
Interesting factoid: key lime pie is normally not green, but yellow. So many people expect it to be green because regular limes are green … but key limes have a yellowish rind and yellow juice. Because so many expect key lime pie to be green, some bakers have taken to adding green food coloring to the filling.
7. What is the most beautiful word you know in any language?
Nana … and it’s at its most beautiful when spoken by the Ts.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
It looks like spring is returning. We’ve had some winter weather the last several days (got down into the 30’s at night), but we’re heading back to more normal temperatures today.
