And now, the lovely Hodgepodge!
1. Besides left over Easter goodies, what's something currently kept in a basket at your house? My kitchen towels. I roll them up and put them in a rectangular shaped basket.
2. 'The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.' ~Michelangelo Buonarroti
So which one are you...the one who aims too high, or the one who aims too low? Have you ever seen The Sistine Chapel? Did you know Michelangelo's surname prior to answering this question? It depends. sometimes I do aim high because I'm interested and I like/need a challenge. Other times, I aim low but that's due to low interest and lack of motivation because of it. And no, I have not and I did not.
3. April 7th is National Beer Day. Hmmm...wonder how that's celebrated? Do you like beer? Have a favorite? If you're not a beer drinker do you have any recipes you enjoy cooking that call for beer? I don't like beer one tiny bit. It's just gross to me.
5. The value of _________________________is greatly overrated. Money. Money has no value in and of itself. It's the things that can be bought the opportunities that money affords that, seemingly, have value. But, even when considering those things, what kind of value do they truly hold other than shelter and some necessary things for living. And yet so many people spend their whole lives working for the almighty dollar. Not for me. I'm good in a basic home with basic amenities. And my sweet Tucker, of course. Now a dog? THAT'S something of value!
6. What's a pet peeve of yours when it comes to restaurant dining? When there are other people in the restaurant. Ha! When it's too loud and when people let their kids run amok are tied for first.
7. It's Poetry Month...share a favorite poem, either the title, a few lines you find meaningful, or the whole kit and caboodle. How about this?
My favorite line is: "Rage, rage against the dying of the light." This has been a favorite poem of mine since college.
8. Insert your own random thought here. I was covering a bit of internet safety with the CD classes this week. We talk about asking ourselves questions when we go to a website: Does anything on this site make you feel bad? Does anything make you feel sad? Does anything make you feel uncomfortable? That sort of thing. We searched for animals and went to the National Geographic for Kids site. I asked the questions and everyone is yelling out, "NO!" And then I asked, "Does anything make you feel scared?" One of the little fellows said, "YES! That lion!"
Have a great rest of the week, y'all!
