Hodge Podge again

1. Thursday (September 22) is the first official day of autumn in this part of the will you welcome the season? I know some of you have been celebrating way too early, but it's official now so permission granted. House Beautiful recently listed ten ways to make your home smell like fall (you can read the list here) What's a scent you love this time of year and how will you add it to your home? I have no sense of smell but I like to scent my home so I have pumpkin spice and baked apple scents that I will use.
2. Apple pie or pumpkin pie? Apple cake or pumpkin bread? Warm apple cider or a pumpkin spice latte?Pumpkin Pie...both.....neither
3. Do you suffer from what is sometimes referred to as an afternoon slump? What helps ward it off before it hits and/or tell us what helps you shake it off once it's here? At times I do and I just take a nap
4. Ladies-how have your friendships with women inspired you or made you a better person? For the men here today- how have your friendships with men inspired you or made you a better person? I cannot imagine my life without girl is so uplifting to spend an afternoon laughing and sharing.
5. Are you a people pleaser? If you said yes, do you think that's a good or bad thing? If you said no, do you wish you were more of a people pleaser? I guess I'm a people pleaser because I want everyone to be happy...I don't think it is good for me health wise because I keep my true feelings hidden and that can't be good for my health.
6. The seasons are a-changin'...share a favorite song relating in some way to change (not necessarily seasonal change, it could be change of any kind).
7. What do you wish would never change? I actually wish we could leave our clocks alone....setting them an hour ahead or an hour behind in the Spring and Fall is just wrong. Couldn't we just set them 30 minutes one way and leave it.
8.  Insert your own random thought here.I have seen some color changes in a few trees already and it  is a little cooler at night but I don't think Fall will be here for a few more weeks.
Visit Joyce for more Hodge Podge or to join....thanks Joyce.


  1. I find a short nap helps a lot in the afternoons. I've started setting a timer on my phone for 30 minutes when I feel sleepy then. I'm hoping that offsets waking up in the night and then not being able to go back to sleep for too long.

    It's been a bit cooler in the mornings here, and leaves are starting to change, but I don't think it will feel fully like fall for a couple of weeks yet.

  2. Love the nap idea, perhaps I should start doing that.

    God bless.

  3. I am with you on the clock changing thing. I don't care if it's Standard time or Daylight Savings Time. Let's just pick one and stick with it always. Changing twice a year is such a pain.

    I am noticing leaves falling off the trees already. And it's very windy today. Fall is definitely in the air.

  4. Naps can be really awesome! I know that being a people pleasure hasn't helped my health. It is stressful to think of everyone's needs. I would love to see some color changes.....

  5. I always look forward to my afternoon naps :)
    Good answer for #7! I wish they'd leave the time alone, too.
