A Bloomin' Hodgepodge!

Welcome to Wednesday and another Hodgepodge! How can April be ending already? Joyce has another fun round of questions for us today!

1. April showers bring May flowers or so the saying goes. Are you blooming where you're planted as we begin the month of May?

I think so. And I certainly hope I'm not a bloomin' idiot! :-)

2. On a scale of 1-10, with 1 being no big deal, and 10 being full scale panic, rank your fear of spiders.

Probably a 1-2, as long as they're tiny. Fortunately, I've never had to deal with a scorpion or a brown recluse. I'd be pushing on toward 10 if that were the case!

3. May is National Salad Month (who knew???)...besides lettuce, what are two must-have ingredients in your favorite salad?

Sliced cucumbers. Boiled eggs.

Only two? That's not even fair! LOL And I'm not even a salad lover! But if I'm gonna have one, I want one with the aforementioned ingredients plus some crispy bacon, cheese, tomatoes, spinach, nuts, and Craisins. Just don't be putting any of those disgusting mushrooms on it, thankyouverymuch!

4. I (Joyce) mentioned on my blog last week that my Daughter1 will be moving to Washington State after she is married. Of the following sites in the Northwest, which would you most like to see in person-Crater Lake (Oregon), Seattle (Washington), Vancouver (British Columbia), San Juan Islands (Washington), Mt. Rainer (Washington) Oregon Coast (Oregon), Mt. St. Helens (Washington), or Olympic National Park (Washington)

Ooh, I'd love to go to Vancouver. I've always wanted to go to Canada. I have been to Seattle once.

5. This coming weekend marks the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby...when did you last race (literally or figuratively) to cross a finish line?

Most days at work when we have admissions, I race to get the paperwork done so I can leave on time!

6. What is something little you love?

Dove Dark Chocolate

7. Would you say you are more of a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learner? Elaborate.

I am definitely a visual and somewhat of a kinesthetic learner. Learning about a disease in theory was always a bit challenging, but I could have one patient with that diagnosis and it would "click." On the other hand, sometimes just knowing how things are used helps. I had a reputation for asking my high school Pre-Cal teacher daily "what is this used for?" in order to grasp a practical sense for what we were learning. In college, if I could have connected how microbiology related to nursing, I wouldn't have struggled with it as much.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

May 1st always brings this classic to mind! I'm not endorsing what it suggests, by any means, but I do love listening to Julie Andrews!

I'm not bothered much by spiders either. I guess larger ones bother me more.
