Wednesday Hodgepodge #215, 2 days late

1. In honor of the date...when were you last sent on a 'fool's errand'?
I'm going to copy Joyce on this and say: Christmas time when I was putting my lights up on the porch and bushes, I have a lot of timers but can never find them when I start decorating because I've put them with the decorations and I don't know which box they're in. (this last year I put them with my electrical stuff in the garage). Anyway, so I went off to Wally World to buy 3 timers that operate by time and not the dawn/dusk type. I took one off the display and it looked okay so I took two more from the same display.....When I got home and opened the first package I realized that the timers I bought were for vacations and  wouldn't work. I never took these back to the store and eventually they found their way into stuff going to the thrift store. I did manage to put timers on all of the lights, though.

2. Peter Rabbit, Bugs Bunny, The Energizer Bunny, The Easter Bunny, Rabbit (Pooh's friend), White Rabbit (of Wonderland fame), or the Trix Rabbit...which of these 'famous' rabbits can you best relate to right now?
I looked up all the definitions for these Rabbits and I don't believe I can relate to any of them..

3. When did you last find yourself scrambling to get something done? Explain.
This one is easy: I borrow books from my library via my kindle and had recently borrowed a Craig Parshall book but didn't start it because I needed to finish up a couple of others the first 2 weeks went by and I had to renew the book before I even began to read it....well it was kind of slow catching my interest and before I knew it I was reminded the book was expiring in 3 days, I couldn't renew again so I am frantically trying to finish because by that time, I'd gotten very interested and wanted to see how it ended....I made it with about 12 hours to spare.
4. Last time you were up at the literal crack of dawn? Why? Last time you stayed up all night? Why?
I don't remember the date exactly but sometime in the past year, I got up at about 4:00 because I couldn't sleep.....I also got up before dawn the morning we left on our recent trip so I'd have plenty of time before we needed to meet the bus.
5. Crack a book, crack a bottle, crack a joke, crack an egg...which have you done most recently?
Crack an egg

6. What's your favorite part of a typical weekend? Tell us why that's so.
I'd love to say it is Sunday because that is when I attend church but it really is Friday....for many years when Honey Bear was still working for big companies Friday night was date was a night when he was home from business trips, didn't have to be up and at 'em the next morning and all day long I looked forward to that time when he was home and we could have what we call 'happy hour' together......we try to sit outside if the weather is not too drastic and just talk to each other, have quality time away from distractions...we use the fire pit in the cooler months and sometimes have fans going on the porch in the warmer one house we had a screened porch which we both loved......we never plan to be away from each other on Friday evenings if we can help it.
7. What's something I'd find on a bookshelf in your home? Other than a book I mean!
8. Insert your own random thought here

Mr Raccoon made a visit last night.....we found the lid off the metal can where we keep our birdseed and chicken feed (guess he won't be hungry for awhile). And there was evidence he had gone fishing, not sure he caught anything yet.....we're looking for solutions to his night time visits....

Stop by From this side of the Pond  and check out this weekly Meme and also Joyce's posts for the A to Z challenge, they are very interesting.


  1. Ahhh, your Friday Date nights sound so special. I hope you get to enjoy them for a long time.

    God bless.

  2. I don't think I identify with any rabbits, but of those listed, Peter Rabbit would be my favorite.

    I cracked both an egg and a book today.

    Your date nights sound lovely. I've always enjoyed Friday nights, too - that end-of-the-week feeling plus not having to worry about getting up at any certain time the next morning.

  3. I had to look up the bunnies definitions too! Love your answer on your weekends and your Friday nights. Sounds perfect!

  4. I hope you find a solution to your pesky raccoon visitor! He'll eat your fish, and your hen, too :(
    Sending warm Easter wishes your way!
