The two guys in this photo above celebrate birthdays this week.
Thank you Joyce From This Side of the Pond for Wednesday Hodgepodge! Click over to join in the fun.
1. April 13th is National Scrabble Day…are you a fan?
Yes, I enjoy Scrabble. Haven’t played in ages!
Do you enjoy word games in general?
What’s an eight letter word that tells us something about your life currently?
Peculiar; unusual, or particular or special. We are heading into a period of hospitality at our Country Bungalow that does not involve biological family. We are confident that it will be a blessing as we adjust in the month of May and into part of June.
2. Do you have a junk drawer? Is it full? Do you know what’s in it? What’s in it?
Yes, yes, and yes. It’s full of things like keys, tape measures, charging wires, and junk! Thank you so much for this question as it caused me to clean out that junk drawer and make it more useable!
3. When does time pass quickly for you? When does it pass slowly?
When our family is all together, time passes quickly.
Time passes slowly when I’m awake in the night at 2am and not able to get back to sleep.
4. These eight vegetables are in season during spring-asparagus, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, celery, collard greens, garlic, herbs. What’s your favorite? Any on the list you refuse to eat? Last one on the list you ate?
Favorite would probably be carrots. I wouldn’t refuse any of these but I’m not a fan of collard greens. On Monday we had some asparagus, carrots and new potatoes roasted.
5. What’s the oldest thing you own? Tell us about it.
Dear has a French Violin from the 1700’s. That is old and probably the oldest thing in our home. Dear’s dad got it from someone when Dear was 10 or 11 and decided he wanted to take violin lessons. Dear’s dad Rex has always acquired interesting things. Our baby grand piano which we got from Dear’s folks is over a hundred years old.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
This little guy turns 4 this weekend and we will celebrate him with Dinosaurs. Time flies when you have Grands!!
All of our kids will be together this weekend and on Friday evening we’ll start things off celebrating our Son-in-law’s birthday which happens to be today. Happy Birthday Andrew. Can’t wait to celebrate you on Friday!
Thankful that you stopped by to read this post and leave a comment.

I don’t think I knew about that violin. That is pretty cool
4 yr olds are my favourite. You can call anything an “adventure “ and they’re all in. My once 4yr old grandson, on whom the sun rises and sets, is graduating this year. They grow up way too fast.
How lovely! Thoroughly enjoy each photo, thank you Ellen.
Lovely picture. And I am enjoying everyone’s Junk draw answers.
What a treasure, your having that violin! About the time I turned 12, my father gifted me the one he played as a boy. Unfortunately, despite lessons, it never took — in large part due to my disinterest. Happy birthday blessings to both your special fellas!
That’s cool you have a violin that old.
Wow on the musical instruments – that is amazing to have a violin that old. I hope you have that insured! I enjoyed your Hodgepodge and happy birthday to your little guy.
Indeed, how amazing to own a violin that old! The piano is lovely also.
Your “peculiar” season of hospitality sounds interesting. Enjoy every moment!
We like scrabble and played it just the other week with David and Liz.
A beautiful very old violin. Amazing that it is that old!!
I am so glad most have in their junk drawer what I do. Wow!! that amazing violin.
Oh what gorgeous instruments!! Wonderful treasures! I also find that time crawls when I’m having trouble sleeping. Happy Hodgepodge!
Hope you have a wonderful family celebration. Can’t believe your grandchildren are so big! Love the violin and grand piano. B x
That violin is beautiful! You are so right…time speeds up with grandchildren. I feel like in general time is moving at mach speed. I’m looking forward to a (slightly) less busy May.
Happy Birthday to the boys! Good luck with your bungalow. Like your answers for #3 on time. I agree on the collard greens. The violin is beautiful and how nice to have the baby grand piano is too. Enjoy the parties.
Musical instruments and family celebrations – I don’t believe it gets any better!
Wow. that is amazing about the violin. We visited a music shop in Hoboken, NJ with a bunch of really old instruments. It was so neat to see. Loved all your answers. and I hope the bungalow situation goes wel.
