Welcome to Life Through Bifocals

Life is not always clear and easy to figure out. So grab a cup of coffee and your bifocals and let's see what we can see.

Thank you Joyce for the last hodgepodge of the winter.  

1.  Thursday marks the first day of spring...to celebrate would you rather plant a garden or go for a walk in the woods? Would either of those activities be possible on Thursday where you live?
Plant a garden!  However we have 2 feet of snow on top of frozen ground so it will have to wait.  I hope that Thursday it's nice enough to go for a walk.

2. When did someone last spring something on you? (or when did you last spring something on someone?)
I have a coworker who surprised me a prayer blanket.  It was a nice thing to do for me and I use it when I'm cold (which is often). It was a nice surprise.

3.  We often think of spring as a time for new beginnings. What's something you'd like to start doing this spring?
I really want to walk every day. I would like to travel more as well.

4. Where do you like to sit in a movie theatre? When did you last sit there, and what were you watching?
I am married to a man who is 6' 3" tall so we always move to the last row right over the steps so that Hubby has leg room. We don't to movies often (too loud!) so the last movie we went to was Iron Man 3.

5. When you meet someone for the very first time, what do you want them to think about you?
I hope they know that I really do want to know about them and I am interested in them.

6. March is frozen food month (yes, really!). Besides ice cream (gotta make you think a little) what's your most often purchased frozen food item?
Frozen veggies.  I like frozen veggies.

7. What's something you avoid?
Getting sick again.  I avoid people who are really sick. I don't want to get an infection of any kind. Cancer will do that to a person. My immune system is compromised, it will be for the rest of my life.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Today is the last day of winter.  BYE  WINTER

Now it's your turn. Come play.


  1. I like that you titled the HP today "Winter's LAst Hodgepodge"! Yea!! ( ;

  2. I am so ready for winter to be done!

  3. Yes, so long winter...don't hurry back!

  4. I too want to see the back end of winter.

  5. I would gladly travel anywhere with you my immortal beloved!

  6. It's great to see your little spring ticker counting down the hours until spring!!! Yay!

    The prayer blanket, from your co-worker, was a perfect gift!

    Stay well :)

  7. I never heard of a prayer blanket before, but how sweet of your co-worker to surprise you with one!

  8. Prayer blankets are just THE BEST!! Covered in the love of our Lord and the person who made the blanket for you! Awesome!

  9. Your sound problems are exactly opposite of ours. ;-)

    Hoping that spring will actually arrive tomorrow! But it looks like we're going to get another teaser. :-(

  10. Good grief, your winter sounds like ours! Hopefully we'll get warmer temps and sun in a couple weeks so these mountains of snow start melting! Enjoyed your Hodgepodge. :-) I'm following via GFC

  11. What a sweet gift you received that was sprung on you! I want to walk too. Hope your snow melts soon......


Thank you for stopping by today and if you left me a comment, thank you twice!
