May Day! Hodgepodge

1. This week's Hodgepodge is Volume 123. What's something you've done recently that was as easy as 1-2-3?

Took my girl to early college registration and then we met her roommate! It was a great trip without any hassles and so much fun!

2. The Wednesday Hodgepodge also happens to fall on the first day of May ...what is something you may do this month?

I may get a little bit teary, either on Senior Sunday at church or when my girl graduates!

3. The Englishman Horace Walpole is credited as saying, "The world is a tragedy to those who feel, but a comedy to those who think" How do you see it?

I'm not a "woe is me" type, but I was saying just last night that I feel like we're living in Jeremiah's days all over again:
"Are they ashamed of their detestable conduct?
No, they have no shame at all;
they do not even know how to blush."
Jeremiah 6:14

4. May is National Hamburger often do you eat a burger? What are your must-haves when it comes to burgers? I assume you vegetarians won't be celebrating so tell us what you'd like instead?

I love hamburgers - real ones, not fast food burgers. I don't eat them as often as I'd like because they aren't that healthy and my girl's not crazy about them. I love a good Angus beef burger at a restaurant or to grill one at home; I usually get the 96% lean meat. My fave way to have it is with some type of white cheese such as provolone, jack, pepper jack, or swiss (NOT bleu cheese!), crispy bacon, tomatoes, lettuce and a tad of purple onion. Oh and mayo. And a toasted bun. Nothing ruins a hamburger more than a cold bun straight from the package. Except maybe mustard.

5. Pansies, petunias, geraniums, impatiens...of the four mentioned, which is your favorite in a patio pot? Will there be pots on your patio this spring? (Or whenever spring comes to your part of the globe?) Who does the gardening at your house?

I have a black thumb and am woefully challenged in the gardening department. We don't really have a garden at our house.

6. When did you last (literally or figuratively) shout "Mayday, Mayday!"

When I typed the title of this post.

7. Say farewell to your April in ten words or less.

See you next year.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I know a lot of people dread May because it's such a busy month with all the end-of-school activities, but I am going to savor each one! We're starting off with a bang with Senior Awards tonight, NHS senior stoling ceremony tomorrow morning, and the Top Ten luncheon Friday. This month is going to fly by!

Glad your trip turned out to be so perfect. I just like cheese on my burgers unless I'm at Red Robin. Good answer on the Mayday questions :)

Great answer for the Mayday one. lol. Treasure this month, and have plenty of Kleenex in your pocket. I actually did pretty good with my daughter's graduation but only because I was upset with her dad. I was going thru a divorce at that time. Enjoy every minute cause too quickly it becomes a memory...
until next time...nel

The end of senior year is very special! Yes, enjoy it all! I remember it well with my girls. One adventure ends, but another one is getting ready to start!
