Wednesday Hodgepodge - Vol 62

Here are my answers for this week's Wednesday Hodgepodge. Everyone is welcome to play along. Just go to this site for the questions and to link your blog post to the list.

1. A new Miss America was crowned on Saturday night-did you watch? If you were a contestant what would your talent be?

No. I didn't watch. I don't even think it is televised here. Even if it were, I probably wouldn't see it. I don't watch much television.

A talent? Well, let's see. I don't play an instrument and for lack of any other performance talent, I'd have to go with singing. However, I am not sure if that would increase or decrease my chance ;-)

2. Do you have houseplants? Real or fake?

Sure, I have houseplants. Real ones. I have a lot of cacti, bamboo, spider plant, a few I don't even know the name, and what I really love are the orchids by my window sill. I never bought them before because I heard they were tricky. Then I got one as a gift and realized they aren't so hard to care for after all.I love all the different varieties and colors available.

3. When you were in school did you speak up or were you more of the hide your face, avoid eye contact, and pray the teacher didn't call on you type of student?

I got lucky. School was relatively easy for me. In most subject, I only had to put in minimal effort to get optimum results. So most of the time I wasn't shy. My biggest downfall was math and math-related sciences like chemistry which had so many equations. In those classes, I had to work my butt off. And I was a bit more shy.

4. Next Monday marks the Chinese New Year...what do you order when someone suggests Chinese food?

We tend to go for Japanese instead of Chinese, and each time I order something different. Hmmm...chinese? I like duck. I like strong flavored sauces. Spicy. With veggies. 

5. How would you define a miracle? What would it take for you to consider something a miracle?

A miracle would be my teenage daugher keeping her room clean for more than a week.

6. What's your favorite Disney song? If you're stuck you'll find a list here.

I honestly have no idea. I'm not always good at picking favorites. 

7. I should have _____________ yesterday.

done the ironing

Didn't do it today either. (sigh) Maybe tomorrow? Eventually I'll run out of things to wear and will be forced to do it.  

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I am wondering how Joyce decides which questions to post each Wednesday. How do you do that, Joyce? Huh? Huh?

Also, the other day the weather was unseasonably warm. Flowers started pushing their heads out of the soil. Insects were out. As I went outside to hang wash, there was a bee sitting on the wall outside the cellar door, sitting there were the sun shone on it. That night the temperature dropped. Frost covered the grass, brushes, tree bark. I am wondering what happened to that little honey bee. The poor thing!

I think like you when it comes to the ironing : ) My hubs is a pro at it though and thru the years this has become 'his job'. Works for me!

I have a head full of random and almost always have a food question and something current, either news worthy or pop culture. I bug my family for help too.

Keep her room clean for A WEEK?? I'm lucky if the boys keep it clean for 1 HOUR!
Maybe the honey bee went to hibernate with Winnie the Pooh.

I love to hear about your weather and the changes. Do you always hang your wash to dry?
