Wednesday Hodgepodge!

Today I'm linking up with From This Side of the Pond for a Wednesday Hodgepodge.  Some fun and interesting questions this week!   Here we go!

1. February ended with an extra 24 hours in 2016. What did you do with your bonus day?

I’ve been sick so I caught up on my sleep and rest that day.  It was nice!

2. What's something in your life that's grown by leaps and bounds in recent days, weeks, months, or years? I'm giving you lots of room to come up with an answer here, so no fair passing on this one.

My dissertation work has grown by leaps and bounds in the past 2 years.  I started with a topic that wasn’t viable to one that makes so much more sense and is very workable.  It will yield lots of good research and outcomes!

3. Do you read reviews about a film before deciding if you'll see it? Did you watch The Oscars this year, and if so your thoughts on the program? How many of the Best Picture nominees had you seen prior to the broadcast? (Spotlight, The Martian, The Big Short, The Revenant, Mad Max: Fury Road, Room, and Brooklyn) If you watched The Oscars who gets your award for 'best dressed'?

I didn’t watch the Oscars this year.  Typically I don’t.  We did see The Martian and really liked it.  It was a good movie and should have done better than it did.  Since I didn’t watch the Oscars, I have no one in particular who I thought was best dressed. I haven’t really even been paying attention to the aftermath of the awards to see who wore what, etc.

4. When did you last have overnight houseguests? Give us your top three tips on being a good houseguest.

It’s been a LONG time since we’ve had overnight guests.  Gosh, I can’t even remember, outside of my sister staying with us, the last time we had guests.  My top 3 tips would be:

1. Keep the room nice and tidy.
2. A Thank you goes a long way!
3. Bring a gift card or nice bottle of wine, etc to gift upon leaving.

5. March 2nd is Peanut Butter Lover's Day. Will you be celebrating? If so, would you prefer a home made peanut butter cookie, a Reese's peanut butter cup, an old fashioned peanut butter and jelly sandwich, or shall I just hand you a jar and a tablespoon?

I will be celebrating because I love peanut butter!  I have a peanut butter cup in the cupboard with my name on it!  I also have some Girl Scout Peanut Butter Patties cookies that I will enjoy to celebrate the day! :)

6. Why is failure important? Or isn't it?

Failure is important because that’s how we learn to succeed and do better.  Our greatest glory consists not in never failing, but rising every time we fall.

7. Share with us one fun thing on your March calendar.

This weekend my sister is having her baby so my new niece is being born!  Also, my hubby and I are going out on a date! It’s been awhile since we had a date just the two of us.  I am looking forward to it!  A fun weekend ahead!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Happy March!  Spring is almost here!!  It’s in the air! :)

Thanks for stopping by and enjoying the view.

Until Next Time....
