Hello March....Wednesday Hodgepodge

Hello March!!  So far, I am enjoying this month with the extra daylight hours and the warmer temps.

 1. Is March coming in like a lion where you live? Aslan, Simba, Elsa, The Cowardly Lion...your favorite 'famous' lion? 

March coming in pretty nice. Monday mild temps with some drizzle, yesterday sunny skies in the high 40s and today it is supposed to be sunny and in the 50s.  Can't complain here.                                                                                                     My favorite would be the Cowardly Lion...I just love his big heart.

2. In what way do you 'march to the beat of your own drum'? 

I have stopped watching a lot of the news...I know people say I need to be informed but just can't handle much of it anymore.  My gracious...think of changing Mr. Potato Head's name and Dr. Seuss books wanting to ban these....for Heaven's Sake give me a break!  Also, have quit looking at FB.  There is too much bragging going on...look at me attitude.  I do look at some of the pictures of friends and listen to my Bible Study but I have cut a lot of screen time out.  

3. What item that you don't have already, would you most like to own? Any chance of that happening soon? 

Drawing a total blank on this....maybe I am just too content with what I have.

4. March is National Flour Month...are you a baker? Cookies-cakes-or pies...your favorite sweet treat to bake? What's the last non-sweet thing you made that called for flour? 

I am not a baker, but I do like to bake cookies when I get the urge for that something sweet that isn't store bought. The last thing I made that called for flour was cornbread.

5. There are 31 days in the month of March...where were you and what were you doing when you were 31? If you haven't hit that milestone yet, then tell us where you were and what you were doing 31 months ago? (if math is not your thing, that would be August 3, 2018)

When I was 31, I was juggling a career with a 2yr old and a 6 month old.  I was teaching at an intermediate school and living in the same town I was living in then.  Wish I could go back to those days!

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

I am meeting a friend today for lunch.  She and I use to teach together and then life happened.  So excited for this get together. She has 3 children...a son who runs track at UT, another son in high school, and her daughter is in middle school...time flies by. 


  1. Tammy,

    I hear you on Facebook. I have nearly stopped going over there. I used to pop over at least once a day to check in to see what's new but not anymore. I'm so over all the political/social spouting nonsense. I don't have to be informed. It's evil at work. Wouldn't it be grand if we could turn back the hands of time to relive the days when we were 31? There's so much I would tell my children and how to better protect them from what we're living with now. It's sad that we raised our kids as conservatives but they let their guard down and turned their minds away from their teachings. Perhaps, one day they'll see the lies for that what they really are instead of the fluff. I had to see where Chilhowie is. I have family just up the road from you in Rural Retreat and my parents live just outside of Bluefield in Rocky Gap, VA. The Internet makes the world so much smaller, doesn't it? Have a wonderful day & thanks for dropping by!

  2. I hear ya on #2. I cannot believe that some people want to erase every single thing. And for what? A gold star? A pat on the back? You're so woke you win by ruining the entire world? So pathetic! I have been focusing on the good things and staying off the internet.

  3. I'm missing social outings like lunch out. I hope you have a wonderful time. My first vaccination is scheduled for next week and we will hopefully be able to resume social gatherings!

  4. We have serious boundaries and limits on news in our house too. Even if you don't watch it, it's hard to avoid.This country gets a little bit nuttier by the day. I hope you had a great lunch out with your friend!

  5. Sounds like a fun meet up! Enjoy. The news is so yucky these days I understand you staying away. We've really scaled way back. Hope the rest of your week goes well.

  6. I hope you enjoyed your time with your friend. "Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver, the other gold."
    I'm not much for keeping up with news, either. That way, I stay happier.
