If you've ever thought about joining the Hodgepodge, or you've read other people's answers--other than mine--and said, "I could do better than that!", than this is your chance. Great questions, plus if you put it off for another week, you're actually putting it off for two weeks because there won't be a Hodgepodge next week, although there will be one the week after that.

Confused much?

Well you shouldn't be confused about what comes next. Read, comment and then go here and visit Joyce. She always has great answers, and a link up to see what everyone else in the world has to say. Or at least, everyone else in the world who is someone because that's who participates in the Hodgepodge! (Dontcha want to play now?)

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?
We're all about being healthy this year (that sounds so boring, I yawned when I typed it). We're not doing ham since that's bad for Indiana, but I think I'm going to cook a turkey breast. And there will not be dyed eggs, but there will be deviled ones which will disappear much too quickly. My boys tend to eat like, well, like teenage boys.

Here's Luke with his first helping from dinner last night. And, yes, both plates are part of his first helping. (I find it annoying that he stays so slim.)

And here's the rest of the crew. They clean up nicely (new suits for the upcoming wedding), but they can definitely eat their weight in--well in anything.

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

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?
Whether in the bounds of love or not, I've got a little trouble with that whole patience thing.

4. What's a springtime flower you associate with your childhood?
My black thumb is inherited, as no one in my family was ever any good at gardening. In spite of that, we had a lilac bush that bloomed every year. That's how I knew it was spring.

5. Ever sung karaoke? If so, what's your go-to song? If not and you're given the opportunity, would you?
I can't imagine doing that without plenty of alcohol first, and since I don't drink, I don't think it's happening.

6. What is something you keep in a basket?
A tisket and a tasket. You know, from "a tisket, a tasket, a green and yellow basket ..."? Okay, that's dumb, but at least I never picked up pawpaws and put them in my pocket.

7. When was the last time you felt foolish?
Probably when I wrote the answer to that last question.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I love this Easter bonnet!

Well there's really nothing more than needs to be said after that, is there?



  1. Hi there! I thought i'd pay a visit to your blog! I try to make my way through the list. Happy Easter :) I know what you mean, my brother would eat a lot (mostly health food) & he stayed slim. Though he'd have a few butterfinger bars here & there.

  2. What a cute baby and bonnet! Good looking sons you have there too.

  3. Too cute! I need one of those (the grandgirls, not the hat!) My teeny tiny Daughter1 can eat a ridiculous amount of deviled eggs.

    Have a wonderful Easter with your family!

  4. There's a bonnet? I couldn't get past the adorable baby face! :-)

    LOVE the lighter background! I could read your blog without feeling old and decrepit, which really helped my #2 answer. :-)

  5. Awww...such a cutie! Love that Easter bonnet.

    Happy Easter.

  6. I shudder to think how much your monthly grocery bill must be with so many male stomachs to fill :)

    Your little granddaughter is a real "cutie"!

  7. Oh my gosh, here I was all set to type in a comment about all your answers for the week, then come upon the Easter Bonnet image and I can't think of anything I just read. So precious is that photo!!

    Oh, now I recall some...eating like that and staying so slim...he could publish a book and make a fortune just to supplement his income for food!!! Goodness gracious, what's his secret? As for Turkey breast, yum. Too young to grow old, I like that.

  8. I always enjoy your HodgePodge posts. I'm not sure I could be creative enough to answer the questions though.


Well don't just stand there! Say something! : )
