Wednesday Hodge Podge

1. 'In like a lion, out like a lamb'...does the first part of this saying describing March weather ring true where you live?
It sure does!  We woke up to sleet and freezing rain this morning.

2. March 4th is National Grammar Day. What common grammatical error bothers you the most? 
Your and you're.  Drives me crazy.

3. William Arthur Ward says- 'The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.' Which one are you?
I think I'm a realistic optimist, but definitely not a pessimist.
 
4. What's something you need to 'march forth and conquer' this month?
My weight.  It's an ongoing process, but I have a vacation at the end of the month that I would like to look my best for.

5. An ongoing debate around here...do you dust first, then vacuum or vacuum first, then dust? Of the two routine household chores, which do you dislike the least? How's that for wording? 
I think I would have to say vacuuming.  At least with that, I'm getting steps on my Fitbit.

6. According to thrilllist.com, the ten most photographed sites in the U.S.A. are- Cinderella's Castle in Orlando, Southernmost House in Key West Florida, The Space Needle in Seattle, The Site of the Boston Massacre in Boston, The Bellagio Lake/fountains in Las Vegas, The Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC, Coit Tower in San Fransisco, The Art Institute of Chicago, Niagara Falls, and snagging the number one spot-The Guggenheim Museum in New York City.
How many on this list have you photographed? Which on the list would you most like to visit and photograph?
I have photographed three.  Some day, I would love to take pictures of Niagara Falls.  I can't believe that the Grand Canyon didn't make the list.

7. Fifty years ago Monday (March 2, 1965) The Sound of Music premiered at the Rivoli Theatre in NYC. Have you seen the film? Do you own a copy? On a scale of 1-10 how much do you love it (or not)? Ten=best movie ever. If you're a fan, what's your favorite scene or song from the movie? 
I think I have seen the Sound of Music at least 100 times.  I had a copy that magically disappeared as the kids started moving out of the house.  I would give the movie an eight.  My favorite scene in the movie is when the kids come out in play clothes that Maria made them from the old curtains.

8. Insert your own random thought here:
We found out that our 5th grandchild is on the way.  The baby is due in October.  We are so excited!!!

  1. Welcome to the Hodgepodge! So glad you joined in today, and congrats on welcoming a new grandbaby to your family : ) I'm surprised the Grand Canyon didn't make the list too. I was mostly surprised the Guggenheim took the top spot. It's beautiful, but I feel like not as well known as some of the other sites. Enjoy your day!

    1. Not me, Brooke. I vacuum first. I feel like the vacuum stirs up dust and then would put it right back on the furniture.
