Wednesday Hodgepodge and other blog hops

1. Sunday was the first day of spring. So they say. Ahem
What is your favorite outdoor springtime activity?
I love getting outside and walking to the parks!

2. Who would you want to come into your kitchen to cook dinner for you?
Well, it would be neat to have Rachael Rae, but my hubby is a great cook to so he treats us often! 

3. When was the last time you flew a kite?
um... I dont know the exact date but it has been a long time.  I think a few years ago I did it with my nephews. 

4. What topic puts you to sleep faster than anything?
Most conversations on politics.

5. What flowers do you associate with specific people, places, or events?
Well, pink roses remind me of my mommy.  I miss her!  

6. What significant historical events took place during your elementary school years?
I was a senior in HS when 9/11 happened.  I remember being in my weight lifting class and we had the radio so we knew before anyone else knew.  It was heart breaking.  
I also remember Hurricane Andrew!  

7. Do you swear? Do you pseudo-swear? (you know- crap, shoot, friggin' ?)
No swear words, but I will say crap and shoot.

I was teaching high school when 9/11 happened. I thought the kids were pulling my leg to get out of taking a quiz that day. Boy, was I wrong!

I was working at a doctor's office and we had our first patients of the day underway when we were told what had happened.

I was the Director of a Preschool when 9/11 happened...we had no idea. We were waiting on the xerox guy to come in from the parking lot and fix our machine and we couldn't figure out why he was sitting in his car. He came in and let us know. After 9/11 the county gave all the schools emergency radios.

I live outside NYC now...its still so sad to walk by the site.

Glad you joined in the Hodgepodge today...didn't mean to be Debby Downer there in my comment!

My children were in elementary school when 9/11 happened. I was stuck in the beauty parlor getting highlights. I could not get out of there quick enough to get to the school and just be with my kids during lunch. It was one of the saddest times I can remember.

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
