Welcome to another Wednesday Hodgepodge!


Happy Hump Day!  We're on our third nor'easter this month ~ UGH!  Not only that, there's another one on the horizon for next week as well!  That's why I'm especially happy to link-up with Joyce From This Side of the Pond for:

1. Best place you've been lately?

I really loved visiting New York City:  visiting Times Square, going to a Broadway show,  walking on the High Line...!  There are endless activities to do in the Big Apple.  I even knew right away where I had seen this restaurant:

 Of course, my husband insisted that there was NO WAY that I could be right ~ that was until he looked it up.  Ha!  Sometimes I can be right after all!  You can read more about my trip here

 
2. What's something you should say yes to today? Or this week? Or even this year?

I need to declutter and organize and put away "my stuff" ASAP every day and week so I'm not left with a HUGE job after a year.  Of course, yesterday I reorganized and decluttered my linen closet.  I'm embarrassed to say this, but I don't think I've done this job since we moved into this house 20 years ago.  I just keep piling "stuff" in.  Yesterday I threw out three big trash bags of clutter and emptied countless cleaning containers with just a tad left in them.  What an accomplishment!

3. Do you celebrate St. Patrick's Day in any way, shape, or form? If so tell us how. In Western cultures the color green is typically associated with jealousy, nature, good luck, and growth. What's the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word 'green'?

I do like to wear green the week before St. Patrick's Day.  The weekend after St. Patrick's Day I enjoy going to an Irish restaurant for dinner.  I really LOVE Irish soda bread!

When I think of green, I think of spring and new leaves!

4. What's a product or service you love so much you'd happily be their spokesperson? Tell us what makes you such a fan.

There's a local charity called PAWS of Wakefield that fosters and tends to homeless animals. In addition, they raise money to pay for veterinarian services and to buy pet food for its animals.   I actually got my dog from PAWS.  Consequently, I am a HUGE fan of this organization!

5. March 14th is Pi Day. How are your math skills? What's the last thing you did that required math of any kind? And most importantly do you like pie? What's your favorite kind? With ice cream, whipped cream, or please hold the cream?

Well, I do LOVE math.  I teach third grade so I get to teach about math every day!  My favorite subjects in math are geometry and algebra.

Of course, I LOVE pie!  I'll take some warmed up apple pie with coffee ice cream any day!



6.  Insert your own random thought here.

snowmanI cannot believe how much snow we are getting in eastern Massachusetts this month!  We've had six snow days!  In Wakefield (where I live; not where I teach), the kids can access their work on snow days so they don't have to make up any snow days.  What do you think of this idea?  I'd love to hear what you think!

  1. I've never considered having coffee ice cream with apple pie! That sounds GOOD. We adopted all of our cats from a shelter, and we appreciate their hard work. They're amazing there. We just need to have NO MORE SNOW in the Northeast, right? I wonder how many of my students would access work from home if they could.
