An Appy with the Hodgepodge.

1. Are you a force to be reckoned with? In what way?

Well, someone called me tenacious the other day, does that count?! I think all of us are to some extent in regards to our kids. But overall, while I can talk a good talk, I'm relatively meek when push comes to shove.

2. What are two things you love about the wintertime? Or, if love feels like too strong a word, what are two things you 'like' about winter?

a) Spring comes next! and b) burrowing under a blanket with a cup of hot tea.

3. Pomegranate, kumquat, persimmon, kiwi, and guava are all fruits said to have health benefits, particularly during the winter months. Do you have a favorite on the list? Are there any on the list you haven't tried?

Kiwi would be my favorite of those. Pomegranates are just strange and I'm not a eg fan. I don't recall ever having tried a kumquat, persimmon, or guava.

4. I passed a local church yesterday and noticed they had this on their outdoor sign- 'When all else fails, do the right thing.' Your thoughts?

Why wait until "all else fails"? Saves a lot of time and grief do to the right thing first off!

5. Do you ski? According to one list I've seen, the top 5 ski destinations for 2014 are-St. Anton Austria, Whistler Canada, Cortina Italy, Tahoe USA, and Zermatt Switzerland. Of the five listed, which would you most like to visit? We can make skiing optional if that helps the non-skiers with their answer.

I've been skiing once. It was not the most stellar experience. LOL So none of those places particularly draw me. I've always wanted to go to Canada, though, so I'll vote for that one.

6. What's the last thing you looked for online? (Besides my blog!)

Info on a medication.

7. What saying, slogan, quote, or motto have you seen lately that inspires you for the new year?

Totally a blank on this one.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

This week started out unexpectedly when I had my appendix out Sunday morning. I was home by that afternoon and am slowly recovering. It is definitely more fun to be the nurse than to be the patient!

Hope you're feeling better soon! I noticed your unexpected surgery didn't interfere with WWF! : )

Glad you're feeling well enough to Hodgepodge with us.

Take care of yourself.

You seem to love winter as much as me! LOL

Eeek, what a rough start to the week! Gad you’re on the mend. Here’s a quote for you: When it starts in the hospital, it can only get better! (I used that one for 2013!)
