Friendly Fill-Ins: Week #49



I am joining our friends, Annie (McGuffy’s Reader) and Ellen (15 And Meowing) for their weekly blog hop. None of the fill-ins this week was conducive to being answered by any of Kitties Blue. My completions are in teal italics. To join the blog hop, click on the badge above and be magically transported to Annie’s blog.

1. An Easter (or Passover) tradition I have is calling it Spring Holiday. Dad Tom and I adopted that to encompass both holidays, as he is Jewish and I am Christian. 

2. My favorite flavor of ice cream is too many to list. It depends on my mood. Some of them are butter pecan, black walnut, peppermint, mint chocolate chip and Oreo mint. 

3. One of my favourite Easter/Passover memories is not really a favorite, just unforgettable. The day before Easter in 2011, I broke my leg. The following morning I got a phone call at about 9 a.m. from a man in front of the house who wanted to buy my car. We had put a For Sale sign on it the day before. Obviously I could not go to the door. I had a cast from my crotch to my ankle. Tom went and sold the car. I always look for the silver lining in every crappy event. As I wasn’t going to be able to drive for several months, choosing to sell the car at that time had been fortuitous!

4. My favourite Spring flower is more than one. I am a flower junkie, and I get excited each time something blooms: daffodils, tulips, irises. I have all of those in my yard and the tulips are blooming now. My least favorite flower is the dandelion. Nothing dandy about them!
