Hodge Podge V 64

1. It's that most wonderful time of the season! Do you complete your own returns or farm that job out to the professionals?

I farm that job out to my husband who is in charge of a tax center here.  I think I have completed my own taxes only once.  Math is not my thing in any form and I avoid it if it can be helped.  

2. This next question comes from Kansas Bob...he posed it in his response to something I asked in an earlier Wednesday post and I asked him if I could add it to the Hodgepodge some day. Today's the day....

Which do you think has changed you more-love or pain?

Love.  I think love makes us grow and while you learn from pain I don't know that you grown as a person.  I am a better person all around because of the love of  my family.  

3. Tangerine Tango has been named color of the year for 2012. Your thoughts? Would I find this color anywhere in your house? How about in your closet? If not, will you be adding this color to your life in some way in 2012? If you're not sure what tangerine tango looks like click here.

I LOVE  Tangerine Tango.  Ihave some kitchen tongs in that color but I would love to add more and add it to my bedroom.  It is such a bright cheery color and it seems warm to me.  Especially appealing when it is really cold out :)

4. Are you a collector? What do you collect and does it get admired, used, and/or dusted regularly?

My husband will tell you I collect scrapbooking supplies that I never   I disagree.  I don't collect them I am just to busy to use all my supplies currently.  I collect pitchers and serving dishes.  I LOVE dishes.  Not wise when you move every 4 years.

5. February is National Heart Month...besides a green salad what is one tasty heart healthy dish you like to prepare?

Aren't cheerios heart healthy?  If  pouring cereal into a bowl does not count than I would say fruit salad?

6. When was the last time you had car trouble?

When we moved here about 8 months ago.  

7. Have you been more demanding on yourself lately or less? Is that a good trend?

I think I have expected more from myself lately which is good but I have felt a lot less pressure and guilt if I don't accomplish everything on my list for that day or week.  So I think it is a good trend.  I am expecting myself to work out more and eat better, get more sleep and take better care of myself.  When I am doing a better job of taking care of me I do a better job with everything else.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Random thought.  Well here is a really random thought :)  Today I went to a little village with a friend to check out a kitchen store and I found a fabulous honey spoon that has a bent handle so it will rest on the rim of the jar and drip off.   My wonderful husband of course thought it was dumb which I just don't get.  Men are so different in what they think is cool compared to us women folk at times that it just cracks me up.  I think we will never completely understand one another and that is okay :)  Have an amazing rest of the week!


  1. I can delete the link if you want to change your post but I think it's really fine : ) I have to delete it thru the linky website where I log in. It can be done but don't feel like you have me back if you want to re link. I won't delete it unless I hear back from you.

    I sort of collect scrapbooking if I would just use them that wouldn't be a bad thing!

  2. Maybe he'll get it when he's not touching sticky honey that's dripped off the jar or on the counter...or does he ever touch the honey jar?!!


Thank you for stopping by & leaving a comment! I love it!
