Here are the questions to this week's Wednesday Hodgepodge. You can copy and paste the questions into your blog and link up with Joyce at From This Side of the Pond.
1. The Hodgepodge lands on the last day of March...in ten words or lest bid the month adieu. Farewell! Take your tornadoes and get on out of the door!!
2. March 31st is National Tater Day...your favorite way to have a potato? Given a choice would you opt for sweet, white, or red? How often are potatoes on your menu in one form or another? Ever been to Idaho? If not, is that a state you'd like to visit someday? I love French fries the best. In reality, I love potatoes but we try not to eat them very often. I love a good baked potato with butter and sour cream. I love a good stuffed potato from the local BBQ restaurant. My husband ALWAYS prefers sweet potato over white potato. I love mashed potatoes. I've never been to Idaho and as of right now, I don't have any desire to go to Idaho BUT after a year of no travel, I would go just about anywhere including Idaho.
3. Last time someone or something 'rained on your parade'? Explain. I can't think of any examples where someone has rained on my parade recently.
4. Put all your eggs in one basket, get cracking, nest egg, bad egg, good egg, egg on, have egg on your face, or walk on eggshells...choose a phrase from the list that applies to something in your life currently and tell us how or why. There are a couple of people in my life that I feel like I always have to walk on eggshells around. I have to edit every word before it comes out of my mouth.
5. If I visited your home would I find a lot of baskets there? Something you like to keep in a basket? I don't have a lot of baskets because they are dust catchers!! I love the way they look in other people's homes. I have one basket that I really love that a former pastor brought from Africa. I have children's books in that basket. I have a wire "basket" in one of our upstairs rooms where I keep all of our Christmas cards. I put them on a ring each year and save them to look back at how children have grown and families have changed. I thought I only had two baskets and went to take a picture! Joke is on me...egg on my face!

basket -- my fisherman's basket.
My sister bought it for me as a gift.
Sometimes I put flowers in it and
sometimes I fill it with Christmas
6. Insert your own random thought here. I'm so excited about this weekend. We are going to our church Easter egg hunt on Saturday morning with both of our granddaughters. We signed up for a 45 minute time slots with a few other families. We will be wearing masks. The children's ministry team will disinfect everything before the next group comes in. I'm just so happy to do something normal. My sister-in-law and brother-in-law are coming into town and we will have Easter lunch at my mother-in-law's. Last Easter was just so sad - we couldn't see our family. Mark and I will both be working on Easter morning. I'm working the welcome desk at the stadium where we are having worship and Mark will be working in the parking lot. I may be putting all of my eggs in one basket regarding this weekend :-).
