It is the Luck of the Irish ~ It is the Hodgepodge

It is Wednesday! It is time for the Hodgepodge.
Joyce asks the questions.
We answer the questions.

1. What do you think about luck?

I will say, "that was lucky" or be silly and do a silly thing with my dice in a game for "luck"
Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not.


2. Not counting your own backyard, what's a favorite green space in your town, city, or state?

My parents farm.

3. How do you make your life more complex than it needs to be?
  Worry about things that I have no control over.

4. I read here the three places you should visit with friends. They are-New York City, Hawaii, and Amsterdam (rent a bike, walk along the canal, visit one of their world class museums). I felt the need to expound on that one. Moving on...Of the three places listed which would you most like to visit with friends? What's one place not on the list you think should be visited with friends?

I would pick New York City.

Lake Superior...a picnic on the South Shores of Lake Superior.

5. What's the last live performance you saw? On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being best) how would you rate it?

For my birthday we went to The Nutcracker. I would give it a 9! It was well done.

 6. March 14th is National Potato Chip Day. Are you a fan? Your favorite flavor? Besides potato, what's your favorite chip type of snack?

I like the Kettle Baked Potato Chips. I am a big fan of baked potato chips. 
We do not have chips in our house everyday. They are a treat for us. If they have a sale at the market for if we are planning a fun picnic.
I like the Sea Salt flavor.
I like Cool Ranch Doritos. I like to make a taco salad with Cool Ranch Doritos.

7.What rule is most important in your home?

If we accidentally make a mess we clean it up.

 8.  Insert your own random thought here. 

Our new little kitten, Catsby, had a seizure on Saturday night.
We rescued Catsby from a sad situation in October of 2015.
Our boys have fallen in love with him. The seizure was scary to witness. After he seemed to forget who, where and everything about our loving home. 
Monday he was still not doing very well.
Tuesday he began to be himself again.



  1. I hope your sweet kitty is on the mend Carla! They really do become such an important part of our family don't they? I'm sure it was very hard to see, glad he's OK! I bet that kitty is getting a lot of attention and love ❤️

  2. Carla and family, I continue to pray that Catsby will be fine. Sending our love.

  3. So glad that Catsby is getting back to his old self. Love these hodgepodges! I'll meet you in NYC! :)

  4. Oh poor cat. Hope he's doing ok. I try to worry less about what I can't control but it's a hard habit to break! A picnic by the lake sounds lovely. Have a good week.

  5. Your parents' farm looks so beautiful and peaceful, although I'm sure it is a lot of work. I'm glad your cat is on the mend. Have a great rest of the week :)

  6. The Nutcracker ... fabulous.
    I do hope Catsby continues ok.

    All the best Jan

  7. Cute cookie. Your parents farm looks lovely. Yes the Kettle chips are yummy. I like a salt and vinegar too at times. So sorry to hear about Catsby. Hope it was just a random thing.

  8. Cute kitty! I hope it's health continues to improve!

  9. I hope your precious kitty feels lots better soon. And about the chips...my hubby put a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos with my anniversary gift a couple of weeks ago! haha! I hadn't had any in a LONG time! Hugs, Diane

  10. I love my folks' farm as well...but it's an 8 hour trip 3 states away. :-( Hope your kitty cat recovers and has no repeats!

  11. The Nutcracker is one of my favorites too. I'm sorry about your kitty and hope that seizure was just a one time thing. Enjoy your day!

  12. Animal seizures are very scary. One of my previous dogs had one, and it was very hard on her.
    Suddenly craving potato chips ;)

  13. Oh no, I am sorry to hear about your sweet kitty. I hope the the is on the mend and he never has a reoccurrence of that scary situation. Favorite green patch...hmmm....I think I would choose a sandy patch. there are a lot more of those than green areas where I live!

  14. I want a bite of that cookie!!!

    Happy St. Patrick's Day, Carla.


  15. Poor kitty... I hope he stays well. I've good childhood memories of Lake Huron, so I would agree that Lake Superior should be visited. Happy St. Patrick's Day.

  16. Sorry to hear about your cat. Love that shot of your parents' farm.

  17. I hope Catsby is feeling better!!!

  18. I don't think I'd want to go to Hawaii with friends. New York, Chicago, but not Hawaii. Your answer sounds good. So sorry about Catsby (what a clever name). I love the photo of the farm. xo ~ Nancy
