Spring Hodgepodge

The Cherry Blossom Quad at the University of Washington. Katie, Laura and I enjoyed a couple hours at the University with lunch on the “Ave” on Monday.

1. On this first official day of spring tell us something (besides the weather) you’re looking forward to in this season of the year.

Well that’s a great question. This Saturday we are celebrating Addy’s first birthday with family and friends. She was born on the first day of Spring last year and she turned 1 on the first day of Spring this year. She’s our very special Spring gift. We are also looking forward to finding our new home somewhere close to our kids in Colville.

2. When it comes to spring cleaning would you rather wash windows or wash baseboards? Clean out closets or clean out the garage? Dust ceiling fans or dust bookcases? Wipe down the patio furniture outside or wipe down the light fixtures inside? Any of these tasks recently completed?

I’d rather wash baseboards.

I’d rather clean out the garage because Dear will do that and not me.

Dust ceiling fans since I only have one but I have a ton of bookcases.

Wipe down the patio furniture outside because that means the sun is shining.

I’m trying to pack a box a day so my closets are getting cleaned in a manner of speaking.

3. Your favorite thing to make/eat that calls for cream cheese? Sour cream? Whipped cream?

Cream Cheese = Cheesecake

Sour cream = Beef Stroganoff

Whipped Cream = Parfaits

4. I read here a list of commonly mispronounced words. What is a word that gives you trouble when it comes to pronunciation?


5. What’s a song you love with the word ‘rain’ in the title or lyrics?

Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head

6.  Insert your own random thought here.

We are headed east again for a very special birthday celebration and to look at some more houses that are for sale. Tuesday I clocked more than 20,000 steps…a first for me this year. We did some major yard work. Hello Spring and so it begins, weeds and the grass growing before our eyes. That’s a spring cleaning job that I don’t mind, mowing the lawn. Crazy but true. Happy Spring dear bloggy friends. Hope you find renewed energy and new things every day to thank God for.

Hop over to From This Side of the Pond for Wednesday Hodgepodge. Thank you Joyce!

  1. Woo Hoo! Every Tuesday afternoon I’ve been taking my son to the University of Washington campus so he can attend a music rehearsal. I used to live in Seattle and drove all through the U District so many times, but I’d never actually walked through the middle of the campus until the end of last year. How beautiful the architecture, which I love. Next Tuesday, or the one after I hope to finally go there again and see those blooming cherry trees for myself!

  2. I LOVED your answer about what you’d rather clean…the garage or closets! That was such a cute answer. Have a safe trip to see Addy and also I’ll be praying about houses as you view some more.

  3. I’m answering along with you. 🙂 I think I would rather than clean windows than baseboards (at least from the outside)…that means it is nice weather and I can be outdoors. And I would pick patio furniture over light fixtures as well.

    Happy 1st birthday to your sweet munchkin!

  4. Addy is certainly a wonderful spring gift! What a darling invitation!

    Praying that you and your husband find the house that the Lord has chosen for you at just the right time! That is really something to look forward to!

  5. Addy is such a blessing and I’m excited for you to live closer to her. I haven’t made cheesecake in years but it is my favorite dessert to get when we are out.

  6. Ok – let’s be honest – Addy cannot be a RANDOM thought since you are thinking about her all the time … LOL! Added your house in Colville to my prayer list!
