12 Questions

1. On a scale of 1-10, how superstitious are you, honestly?
Zero. I walk under ladders. Open umbrellas inside. Cross paths of black cats. And have even broken a mirror once.

2. Julius Caesar is quoted as saying, "I came, I saw, I conquered." Which circumstance or experience of yours does this saying best describe?
Probably college. I graduated with a decent GPA and all the convo credits I needed.

3. If I peeked in on your day like a mischievous little leprechaun, at what time would I most likely find you blogging?
Whenever I find time. Mostly at night...and often time once a week or less.

4. Re: springing forward for Daylight Saving Time, is there anything you've ever been really early or really late for?
Not that I can remember.

5. What are you most looking forward to concerning Spring?
Planting my garden. My seeds are started and I can't wait to get them in the ground. I also can't wait to do some serious camping this spring.

6. Shamrocks are the national flower of Ireland and are picked on St. Patrick's Day and worn on the lapel or shoulder. Do you wear green on St. Patty's Day?
If I remember.

7. One of Caesar's assassins, Casca, said, "But, for my own part, it was Greek to me," which of course means he didn't understand something. Probably his own lines in the play. Anyway, what is something that is "Greek to you," something incomprehensible or indecipherable?
Computer stuff....especially when our IT folks at work start talking about things I don't understand.

8. Is March behaving more like a lion or a lamb where you live?'s been raining a lot. And the weather has been crazy - warm this weekend and it may flurry next week. So I guess that would be lamb-ish.

9. "An extra yawn one morning in the springtime, an extra snooze one night in the autumn is all that we ask in return for dazzling gifts. We borrow an hour one night in April; we pay it back with golden interest five months later." -Winston Churchill. If you had one extra hour per day every day, what would you do with it?

10. Legend says that every Leprechaun has a pot of gold hidden deep in the Irish countryside. Aside from real gold or money, what material item would be in your dream pot of gold?
Nothing. There's really nothing I desire now. For real.

11. "The best things are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of God just before you." Robert Louis Stevenson. Look around you right now and tell us about something essential or beautiful very near you that you take for granted every day.
My backyard which backs up to beautiful trees. Some people don't have a yard and don't have trees to enjoy and provide shade. The trees are at the edge of the yard, but they provide shade in the late afternoon...and homes for lots of birds and other animals.
