Wednesday Hodgepodge

This week's questions from  Joyce



 1. When was the last time you chatted with a neighbor? About what? (sharing that last bit is optional) 

Honestly, I can't remember the last time I spoke with any of my neighbors.  People in my neighborhood tend to keep to themselves.

 2. River, lake, ocean, or waterfall...which one are you most like and why? 

I think I"m like a lake.  Cool and placid on the outside, but a lot happening beneath the surface.

 3. July 13 is National Delaware Day. Ever been to Delaware? Delaware is called 'the first state' because it was the first to declare independence from the British. What's your state's nickname and does that moniker make sense to you? If you were in charge, what nickname would you give your home state? 

I've driven through Delaware many times, on my way to somewhere else.  But I never stopped, except maybe to buy gas for the car.


 4. What dish did you contribute to the last pot luck meal you attended? Do you have a go-to recipe for pot luck suppers? 

I don't really do pot lucks.  But my favorite dish to prepare for a crowd  is a caprese salad.  Cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, basil and a balsamic vinaigrette.

 5. What is your number one tip for a brand new parent? 

Don't be afraid to ask for help if you're feeling overwhelmed.


 6. Insert your own random thought here.

Crazy busy at work these days.  Whoever said that things slow down in the summer is totally clueless.

It probably depends on your line of work. Now, schools... They definitely get slower in the summer ;) But amusement parks, now, those would pick up in the summer months.

Do you get a slow season?

I think that people do slow down in summer - and when you have to get things done (we are working on eldercare issues) it is frustrating to call - this person is out, that person is on vacation, oops, we close early on Fridays....Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
