Random Dozen - 3/17

Head over to 2nd Cup of Coffee to join in in the fun.

1. On a scale of 1-10, how superstitious are you, honestly? Probably a 1 maybe. I'm really not superstitious much at all. 

2. Julius Caesar is quoted as saying, "I came, I saw, I conquered." Which circumstance or experience of yours does this saying best describe? Laundry. On a daily basis just about.

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 should be doing laundry. Usually in the afternoon but sometimes after the kids are in bed.

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 recall. I'm typically either early or only a tad bit late - unless hubby is with me - then we're usually late.

5. What are you most looking forward to concerning Spring? Warm weather! I hate wearing bulky jackets. I love it when it's warm enough to wear just a sweatshirt or no jacket.

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? Not usually. Sometimes I make the effort but typically I don't. I don't have any on today.

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? Math.

8. Is March behaving more like a lion or a lamb where you live? Definitely a lamb. It's been in the 60's and almost all the snow is gone. I'll be posting photos next week that show how much snow we had on the ground last year compared to this year. It feels like it's April instead of March. Of course, I am not complaining!

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? Sleep - although probably blog.

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? A digital SLR camera. Right now I have a point and shoot Kodak. Some day....

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. Something essential: my computer with DSL. I live in the boonies of Maine. I can't even get cell phone service at my house. But I can log in daily and connect via the internet whenever I want. Beautiful: my kids.

12. Just for a bit o' fun, click here ( and then report your Irish name. Eva O'Neill


  1. I want a SLR camera too, one day :)

  2. Math is a big puzzle for me, also! Love your Irish name!

  3. Woah woah woah!! Let me set the record straight! Lisa is usually way early. Way way early! When she's with the hubby, we're usually only a little early, or on time. Lord help us if we're not there 20 minutes before so we can sit around and wait.


Oh thank goodness! I'm not here all alone. Thanks for leaving me a comment. It helps that I'm not always talking to myself. Right? Hello?
