Wednesday Hodge Podge

Hodgepodge Questions-Volume 223

1. What's something you're looking forward to in the month of June?
Well, nothing really, yet. I was just thinking this morning that we need to plan something...I think we need to have things to look forward to even if it is an outing for an hour or a day....My choir group is singing for the Senior Luncheon at church on the fourth Thursday, patriotic songs and we're to dress in red, white and that is one thing on the calendar....but now that the chickens are gone, I think Honey Bear and I should take a weekend trip...we used to do that spontaneously or just decide on an impromptu picnic...not so much anymore.

2. In what way have you come full circle?
In the fact that its just the two of us again but really that has been so for 12 years now...
3. Lonely Planet lists 10 spots in America you should see in 2015 and the reasons why. How many on the list have you seen? Which one on the list would you most like to see? 

Queens NY, Western South Dakota, New Orleans, Colorado River Region, North Conway NH, Indianapolis IN, Greenville SC, Oakland CA, Duluth MN, and the Mount Shasta Region CA
New Orleans
4. A song that describes your mood right now?

5. Strawberry ice cream, strawberry short cake, strawberry pie, or strawberries right off the vine...your favorite?
Strawberry ice cream but choosing the weight conscious way, I eat my Strawberries straight from the vine
6. Aesop's birthday is celebrated on June 4th, although there is some disagreement as to whether or not that's accurate, or if he was even a real person. Regardless, the name Aesop is associated to this day with many well known fables. Which of the following best applies to something in your life right now? The Tortoise and the Hare(Slow and Steady wins the race), The Ant and the Grasshopper (Be prepared), The Fox and the Goat (Look before you leap) or The Crow and the Pitcher (Necessity is the mother of invention)?
The Tortoise and the Hare
7. The answer is yes...what's the question?
Do you feel younger than your age suggests?
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Took a break in writing my post to watch some videos with Honey Bear....I've finally let him convince me to do our tile shower won't be his first since he worked with tiling baths during college and he recently did the kitchen back splash.You can watch how-to videos about most any project online now.


  1. I'm pleased that Greenville, SC is on that list - I lived there for 26 years! Would love to go back.

    Strawberry shortcake would be my favorite strawberry dish.

  2. If I had to pick I would say Strawberry Shortcake. Strawberries are not may favorite summer fruit. Give me raspberries or blueberries.

    God bless.

  3. I agree, even an hour outing is something to look forward to! It is nice to have plans. Good luck with your shower tile!

  4. Hi,
    I'm stopping by to catch up with you. No chickens? What in the world?
    Well, lucky you, at least you can take that weekend getaway now.
    You are so right about YouTube! There are videos about virtually everything! Hope the project turns out well :)

  5. Hello girl......... I have finally made the move away from FB I am really tired of it and it is so very impersonal.... I do miss the blogging days. I hope to post something new on my blog tonight and start to reacquaint myself with most of the ladies. It will be hard but I did it once before so I can do it again..We are in the middle of remodeling and it is NO fun but just too expensive to hire others to do it. Dennis is good at it but with him working 5 days a week at the college it is slow going here at home....... but...... I am learning not to get in a hurry anymore.. Life is too short to rush! Have a blessed Sunday and I will be back often.....
