It's that time again. Go see Joyce and link up for the Wednesday hodgepodge!
I don't have a great sense of direction, but I can usually figure out which way I came from and get back to where I started. We have a GPS, but it has proven to be unreliable in some instances and has sent us in totally the wrong direction...go figure. So we use the GPS as a general guide, but I do use the one on my i-phone with good success. The last time I used a map was probably when we were driving through Georgia and wanted to get off of a congested interstate to go the back roads.
2. What's your favorite cookbook?
My favorite cookbook is one that I compiled for our extended family for Christmas gifts several years ago. It has all of our old favorite family recipes in it. I use it the most.
3. What painting would you like to "walk into" and experience? Why?
I have two that I really like.
Another one of my favorite artists is Greg Olsen. I had a difficult time choosing just one of his paintings but this is the one I chose.
4. What annoys you more- misspellings or mispronunciations?
Misspellings annoy me more. You can kind of give people the benefit of the doubt on mispronunciations due to where they are from and accents, but misspellings...it's called a dictionary. Look it up! You don't even have to own a hard copy. http://www.dictionary.com/ is a great friend of mine.
5. What is something your mother or father considered important?
Education. There was never a question of if I would go to college. It was always, when you go to college...
I was extremely blessed. My parents always said that my number one job was to go to school. Therefore, aside from babysitting I did not have a job. Once I got into college I would have a part-time job here or there, but the emphasis was always on school.
6. Do you like or dislike schedules?
I love schedules. I thrive on schedules. I need a schedule. That said, every once in a while it is nice to have a break from the schedule. Spring Break was just enough and now it's back to the daily routine.
7. Let's have some fun with National Poetry Month (that would be April)...write your own ending to this poem-
"Roses are Red
8. Insert your own random thought in this space.
I had to take Princess back to the doctor on Monday. She has an ear infection. Will my household ever get well and stay well?! Hubby and Princess are on antibiotics and Prince finished his a week or so ago. Perhaps we'll get a bit of a reprieve soon. At least I haven't gotten any calls from school in the last two days saying that I have a sick child. That's a great start.
