Wednesday hodgepodge

1.  When were you last facing an ocean? Using just ONE word, describe how you felt as you faced that ocean. 

Last facing the ocean-in June 2012.  Finally, we were  able to go as a family this past summer.  Having daughters in college makes it a juggling act with schedules.

As I faced the ocean, I felt very tranquil.  

2. What are three sounds you hate to hear?
Blaring sirens-fearful sound to my ears especially if I know family has headed in the direction the sirens are going

Car brakes-who almost hit me????

A squealing scream-I know something good has not  happened.

3. This question comes to you courtesy of some real life friends. Hi real life friends! When you shop for yourself, do you try everything on in the store before buying or do you buy, try on at home, and then return what you don't like or what doesn't fit?

Usually, I try everything on before buying.  Most of the time, I carry my items around then decide not to try on or purchase.  My family always says this irritates them.  How?  I don't know.

4. February 26th is National Pistachio Day...are you a fan of the little green nut? Do you use them in cooking and baking or prefer to eat them right out of the shell?

Huge fan of Pistachio-eat them right out of the shell.

Bought a bag last summer-a small bag and was $16.00-haven't had any since then.  

I have made a pistachio salad-very tasty. Also, very simple and easy to make-which is right up my alley!

5. When did you last have to compromise with someone?  Were you happy to reach the compromise or slightly irritated it was necessary? 

I can't remember-a good thing for me.  I am sure since I can't remember the last time, it will happen shortly-isn't this always true.

6.  Have you ever written a letter to an elected official? Did you get a response?


7. We 'March' into a new month at the end of this week...what's something on your March calendar guaranteed to make you smile?


8.  Insert your own random thought here.

The weekend is getting closer!  Yay!


  1. That salad looks good. I've made something I'm sure is similar-does it have crushed pineapple in it? Pistachios go on sale around here periodically and I stock up then.

    Have a nice week!

  2. Tranquil also describes my feelings while looking out at the ocean.

    I agree with your three sounds, all make my heart begin to race a bit faster!

  3. I love pistachio salad (aka watergate salad). I make it every Christmas. I know what you mean about kids in college and having to juggle everyone's schedules to make vacations happen. Just isn't as easy as it used to be.

  4. I could just lay on a beach and be happy. All I want is the sound of the surf. :o)

  5. My daughter and son in law live with us. They went out for a bite to eat and several hours later when we left to go to the show they were not home. Passed a street that they use to go to a friends house, very hilly with cliffs and the polich had it closed off. Imagine my worry. I texted and she didn't answer. Had to have the phone off during the movie. They are fine!

    I am looking forward to Easter too. Tranquil is a great word to describe the beach.
