Taping Up the Hodgepodge

It's almost spring break! People at school are so dang tired. Including the kiddos. When we return, there will be just one more quarter and we're out! WooHoo! I'm ready! We've been in the 80s around here until a couple days ago when we went back into the 50s during the day and 40s at night. Please, Mother Nature, make up your mind. 

What else is exciting? The Hodgepodge, of course! 


1. Has spring sprung in your little corner of the world? Yes. Other than the calendar how would I know? Pine. Pollen. What's your favorite thing about spring? Not pine pollen. Ha! I like that my grandmother's birthday was in the spring and Deanie's birthday is in spring. 

2. Besides the weather, what's put a spring in your step recently? The fact that Spring Break is almost here! 

3. How does Easter impact you? I cook for the family. 

4. I saw this somewhere on Facebook and thought it would make a fun Hodgepodge question. Which of the following would you find most disappointing...

a just stuffed taco shell breaking open and spilling out before you take the first bite? I don't eat tacos but I imagine this would not be fundropping a just-purchased Starbucks/Dunkin Donuts coffee? I don't drink any coffee other than the stuff I make at home and I don't take a to-go cup. opening the peanut butter jar and finding it empty? How would I not know the jar is empty before opening it? upending onto the sidewalk a just-purchased ice cream cone? Now, this would hurt. IF I was still eating ice cream. a burnt bagel popping up in your toaster when you're rushing breakfast? I don't eat breakfast but I wouldn't like it if I still ate bagels and this happened and it was the last one.  or cutting into an avocado and finding out it's rotten? How would I not know it was rotten before I cut into it? All that being considered- I'm going with the bagel if it was the last one.

5. What's something held together with tape at your house? Oh, Lawdy. You do NOT want to know. But it has to do with the outside of the house and a piece of rotting wood. Sigh. At least the paint is gray. Or a paper clip? Nothing. Or a wing and a prayer? My bathroom floor. Seriously.


6. Do you feel underappreciated? Not really. In what way? Or maybe. Not at work, that's for sure. The folks I work with are so good about appreciated each other. At home, I don't think I do anymore. Feeling underappreciated is too related to playing the victim and I try not to do that. 

7. What's something you'd build if you knew how? An awesome birdhouse that was squirrel proof. I'd still put food out for the squirrels, but not in the bird feeder. Or maybe a really awesome robot that could search for survivors following a natural disaster. Good grief. I've been teaching these kids too long. LOL

8. Insert your own random thought here. OMGah! I have so many things planned for spring break! Sadly, the chances of any of them actually happening are slim to none. I will, in all likelihood, sit down and not move until school starts back. There's only one 9 week quarter left and I have no idea how in the world I'm going to make it through. Let's hear it for rest and relaxation!



Have a great rest of the week, y'all!

  1. We used to buy bird seed that was called pepper seed. It had some kind of pepper in it and the squirrels didn't like it but the birds did. I hope you have a restful spring break, filled with wonderful weather!

    1. Really? I'll have to check that out! Tucker really does enjoy chasing the squirrels though so I don't want to stop them completely. We must make everyone happy. LOL I hope so too. I need it. :)

  2. I know what you mean about pine pollen! YUK! I hope you have an enjoyable and restful spring break. I know this time of year gets hard at school. Nobody wants to be there, including the teachers :) Have a happy and blessed Easter.

    1. Too bad we don't live closer. We could share the cooking! :)

  4. The spring break for our schools is this week, and driving into work and driving home has been lovely without all the teacher and kid traffic (and buses!). Hooray for Spring Break! Glad yours is coming!

    1. I know what you mean. It's like that here too during long breaks from school. I'm so glad it finally arrived!

  5. Good idea for robot. There was a competition with this goal in mind. So far the robots didn't do so great. There's a NOVA show about it.
    Hope you get good R&R.

    1. Oh, yeah. The DARVA project? Or something like that. I watched it on Curiosity Stream. All I had was the idea. They have the know-how and the money. Ha! My students LOVE watching those things. Thanks!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
