Wednesday Hodgepodge

Joyce, from This Side of the Pond hosts this weekly meme. Simply copy/paste the questions, answer them, link up, and visit some fellow hodgepodgers! Thanks, Joyce! Here are this week's questions;

1. Since these questions are posting on the first day of April it seems only right to ask-when was the last time you did something foolish? If you can't answer that one, try this one-when was the last time someone fooled you?

The last time I did something foolish was when I left yoga tonight thinking, "Hm; why do I feel like I'm forgetting something?" but didn't take stock to answer the question. I got home and realized I'd left my brand new yoga mat there! (I hope it's there tomorrow.)

2. What's the last biography or non-fiction book you've read? Was it any good?

I recently listened to the audiobook, I Am Malala: The Girl Who Stood Up for Education and Was Shot By the Taliban. It was very good; she's incredible.

3. Garlic-friend or foe? What's your favorite dish made with garlic?

I like garlic. My favorite dish made with garlic Baked Mostaciolli, which is always a hit at my house.

4. Several Spring flower festivals happen in the US during the month of April. Of those listed, which would you most like to see in person... The Skagit Tulip Festival in Skagit, Washington; The Dogwood Arts Festival in Knoxville, Tennessee; The North Carolina Azalea Festival in Wilmington, North Carolina or the Daffodil Festival Weekend on Nantucket Island, Massachussets?

I would be up for the Tulip Festival in Washington, for sure--Tulips and Washington (State) are two of my favorite things.

5. How do you choose which blogs to read?  What is something that will make you stop and read every time? Something that makes you say, 'eh, think I'll skip this one and move on to the next'?

I usually start with the blogs of people who visit my own blog; I'm always happy to catch up with friends. However, if the post is too long (lacking paragraph breaks, especially) I admit to skimming.

6. April is National Mathematics Education Month so tell us, when did you last use math? 

I use math every day in my job as a middle school teacher, but I also use it when I cook, since I'm a recipe follower. I also use proportions to resize photos for Half-Past Kissin'Time sometimes.

7. In honor of the A-Z challenge kicking off on April 1...choose one word beginning with the letter A to describe your yesterday.

My day yesterday (the first Monday after Spring Break) was arduous; (I'd like to thank the website Adjectives That Start for helping me with this answer!)

8. Insert your own random thought here.

One day this week, on my way to work, I saw a middle school girl walking to school in a sleeveless dress (and no coat). Many kids were wearing shorts. It was 37 degrees. Only in Wisconsin...
