May Be the Wednesday Hodgepodge

Here are the questions to this week's Wednesday Hodgepodge. Answer on your own blog, then hop back here tomorrow to share answers with the universe. See you there-

From this Side of the Pond

1. May Day! May Day!...last time you shouted for help? Or maybe just asked? 

Mr. Fixit! My Overdrive account has gone kerflooey! All my virtual library book holds have disappeared and it seems to think it's four years ago! What's going on?

(My account somehow got shifted over to a seldom-used card for another library. I still don't know how.)

2. What's something you may do this month? 

Take a drive to Lake Huron, just for fun and because the weather's getting better.

3.  'April showers bring May flowers' this true where you live? What's blooming? What's your favorite springtime blossom?

Spring comes slowly here (we were still getting dustings of snow until recently), but the buds are out on our lilac bush, and I've seen some tulips and violets.

4. What's something you learned at your mother's knee?

To share.

5. Share a thought about motherhood. 

     "The Babe,
Nursed in his Mother's arms, who sinks to sleep
Rocked on his Mother's breast; who with his soul
Drinks in the feelings of his Mother's eye!
For him, in one dear Presence, there exists
A virtue which irradiates and exalts
Objects through widest intercourse of sense.
No outcast he, bewildered and depressed:
Along his infant veins are interfused
The gravitation and the filial bond
Of nature that connects him with the world." (William Wordsworth, The Prelude)

It was 87 here today so I think we've finally left the cool weather behind. Now if only the pollen would follow suit. Hope you get that drive to the lake. I've never been to any of the great lakes.

oh bummer on losing your books. My MIL uses overdrive. I used to use it however, I live out of city limits and it costs $115 a year for a library card. I enjoyed your answers.
