Wait... its ONLY Wednesday?????  This has been the slowest week so far... ugh!  Maybe doing a little Hodgepodge will speed it along.

1. St. Patrick's Day will be celebrated this coming Saturday. What's a favorite article of clothing you own that contains a touch o' the green?

I love green... I think it goes well with my red hair, so I actually own a lot of green.  Shirts, sweaters, scarves... even have a mint green skirt that I love.  But for this year's St. Patrick's Day, it falls on the same day as a 10K that I'm running - so I'm trying to find what kinda green tech-wear I have.  I do have some light green running shorts... but it is a possibility of rain.  Light green & rain?  Might as well be running in my underwear... I just need to make sure those are green too.

2. What's a favorite 'green space' in the town, state or province where you live?

I get a pass on this question because hello!?!?!  I live in GREENVILLE, Indiana!  My whole town is my favorite place :)

3.  Do you wish you were taller, shorter, or think you're just about right in the height department?

I was always one of the taller girls in my class during elementary school & middle school & I always enjoyed it.  Being in the back line of picture day?  Good times of being able to goof off because no one can see what you're doing back there.  Now, as an adult, I'm 5'8 - is that average?  I have no problems with my height... now if we're talking width, that's another topic :)

4. What's the surest way for someone to pick a fight with you?

Just find me on any PMS day & any topic will suffice for a fight

... or have the name of "Ricky" & leave your socks on the counter top

... one or the other. 

5.  Broccoli-spinach-string beans-peas...of the four your favorite green veg? (Or the one you dislike the least if that first option is too hard for you. I know there are some veggie haters out there).

Broccoli... with tons of cheese on it
Spinach ... covered with hot dressing
String beans... covered with salt
Peas .... never

So in the end, I only like veggies if you douse them with anything unhealthy.

6.  March is National Women's History Month...besides friends, neighbors, and the women you're related to, who's a woman in history you admire and why?

Mother Teresa... the things she sacrificed to help others.  She was truly the hands & feet of God on this earth.  And some of the things she would say?  I love to google "Mother Teresa quotes" & every one of them is something powerful & insightful.  To leave the world with a legacy like that... to leave the world changed for the better because of what you've done.  That's amazing....

"We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair & hopelessness is love.  There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread, but there are many more dying for a little love"

7. Keep calm and ___________on.

You fill in the blank.

I have two actually

Keep calm and RUN on
Keep calm & KNIT on

Both calm me.

... maybe I can run and knit at the same time... find a new level of zen.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

82 degrees today... trees & flowers starting to bud ....welcome allergy season!!!!


  1. It had DEFINITELY been one of the slowest weeks... I'm in Friday mode! Can't stand peas, either! And people have it for dinner often. and LOL - poor Ricky and his socks hahaha. Running and knitting at the same time?? WHOA. I DARE you to try it! hahaha. Have an awesome Fridayish-Wednesday. :)

  2. It's going to get to 81 here today. Everything's starting to bud out. I would say welcome to allergy season, but we've been under a pollen alert here for at least the past month. I blame the lack of winter (we had the 3rd warmest winter on record here). While I'm not enjoying the pollens, I AM enjoying the signs of spring!

  3. I had NO idea you were 5'8!! How did I not know this? (Maybe because we have never met in person? =)


    I have GROWN an inch somehow..... I went to the doc the other day and I am 5'6. I have been 5'5 for ever so long. Maybe hanging on the inversion table is making me taller. That's a plus right? =) Oh yeah, and it's helping my back =)

    Are you feeling well enough to run on Saturday friend?

    I love you so ~~ Have a Super Blessed Day ~~ dawn

  4. I am so with you on your answer to #4...except his name would be Chris!;) would definitely tower over me with you being 5'8" and me being 4'11"! Would you believe I had a kid one time ask me if I was a midget? Little smarty pants!

  5. Poor Ricky. Did he even know what he was getting into or was it an arranged marriage?

  6. Have fun finding Green to wear to your run, I totally laughed at the mental image of light green shorts dissappearing in the rain to reveal dark green underwear.

    Socks on the counter?? Oh no. That would steam me too.

  7. I was just telling someone today that it was the slowest week ever. I'm convinced it's the time change. Springing forward messed EVERYTHING up. Just sayin'.

    I have gotten to where I can eat steamed broccoli with just salt. So yay! But peas...never. I'm so with you on that.

    I've got green nails for St. Patty's day!

    I would have to go with Helen Keller for the most admirable woman, although Mother Theresa is amazing too. Helen Keller though, wow. The lady was blind and deaf yet look what an impact she made. She could see and hear more than most non-handicapped people. Such an inspiration.

  8. Oh the allergies are terrible this year. I said Mother Teresa also.

    Enjoy the rest of your week.

  9. Knitting and running at the same time? Girl, have you lost your mind? Why don't you go ahead and throw in eating some ranch-dipped green beans while you're at it. You're funny. :D

  10. I am very jealous of your 82 degree weather! It's been raining for what seems like non stop for two days already. Not my cup of tea. Knitting and running at the same time. I think it can be done. :) You should try it!

    Greenville, huh. Sounds like Something out of Dr. Seuss, like Who-ville, and Thneedville..ya, a little wacky there.sorry
