Wednesday Hodgepodge

I have seen various other bloggers participate in Wednesday Hodgepodge, but have yet to participate.  Today is the big day, if you want to play along click the link above and answer away!
1. Have you ever played golf? Any interest in playing? Do you have a significant other who loves to play? Did you watch The Masters this weekend? 

No, I have not played real golf.  My husband has been a couple of times and liked it, but not loved it enough to go back regularly.  I absolutely have no interest what-so-ever in watching golf on TV!  We do enjoy playing Wii golf and I am pretty good at that.  And mini golf is fun too, but I haven't been in years.

2. Hats are back in fashion this do you feel about wearing a hat? (fyi-I'm not talking baseball caps) When was the last time you wore one?
I don't know that I have ever worn a hat that wasn't a sun protection type of hat.  I guess as a kid I probably had Easter bonnets.  When I was in high school I enjoyed wearing western wear to go country dancing and occasionally would wear a cowboy hat, but wasn't crazy about them as I don't think women look good in them.
3. On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being 'proficient' and 1 being "I'd starve" how adept are you at using chopsticks? 

I'd have to say a 5.  I can do it, barely, as in I wouldn't starve, but I don't ever choose to use them if a fork is available.
4. Has technology taken over?
Of course technology has taken over, unless you live in a cave, or under a rock.  Heck my Mom even has a Kindle Fire.   Not that she uses it, it was a birthday gift from us kids, but she has one LOL! 
5. In the course of a day, how often do you look in a mirror?
I probably use the restroom 4-5 times a day seeing how this baby is pressing on my bladder and I of course look in the mirror because every bathroom has one.   Occasionally I will check the small mirrror in my purse if I need to check something on my face or mouth, but generally I am not a vain person. 
6. Tulip or Daffodil?

They are both nice, currently I have daffodils blooming in my flower beds and the tulips are just starting to open up.  I love how easy the are, that they take very little maintenance work and just come up and are beautiful every spring.  If they bloomed for a longer period of time they would be the most perfect flower.
7. I am proud of myself for_________________________.

This could be a really deep question, but I am going to keep it simple and say that I am proud of having all my A-Z Challege posts done so far. 
8. Insert your own random thought here.

It was fun that today I saw the Wednesday Hodgepodge link on Tracy's blog: so I decided to participate too and when I went to Joyce's blog: I saw that she is also participating in the A-Z Challenge.  It's a small blogging world!

I am enjoying the A-Z Challenge, and it is really racking up my blog posts.  Some of the letters come easily and some are more challenging.  I have also been enjoying visiting other bloggers and leaving comments, especially now when you visit and have several (10 if they are up-to-date) posts to read during the visit.  One thing I wish was different though is that there would be some way to identify what type of blog they all are.  There are over a thousand people participating and it's hard to tell what kind of blog you are visiting.  Some are really out there and I have no interest in their theme, and I'm sure there are several out there that I would love and become a dedicated follower for, but just can't find them. 


  1. I love that she has a Kindle Fire not that she uses it. Sort of like both my mother and my MIL HAVE digital picture frames but neither knows how to use it eventhough I loaded pictures on them.

  2. I agree with you on the a-z challenge. Although forcsome reason ky kindle wont let me write posts so I am behind.

  3. I would TOTALLY starve if I had to eat with chop sticks. This is a fun set of questions!

  4. I have never done the A to Z challenge but I know Joyce does. Maybe I will play along next time.

    Hope your having a good week.

  5. You are super woman to do this and do the challenge too, it takes all my brains just to think of my daily A-Z posts! This Wed Hodgepodge is a really cute idea though!

    I might try my hand at it after April. My dad spent some time in China back in the 40's so we were brought up using chop sticks now and then.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
