Chillin' in the Wednesday HodgePodge

1. When did someone last suggest you 'chill out'? Or, when did you last tell someone (or want to tell someone) to 'chill out'? Or, when did you last tell yourself to 'chill out'?
You know, I try not to let things stress me out but I know they do when I can't go to sleep because I can't turn off my brain. I suppose the last time was just getting everything ready for the different events centered around the Christmas season.

2. What most recently caused your heart to melt? 
There was a program on Animal Planet recently that showed these adorable puppies tumbling around and climbing on top of things and each other. It was one of those sights that make you go ahh...

3.  "An adventure is only an inconvenience rightly considered. An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered." G.K. Chesterton  

Your thoughts? When did you last experience either an adventure or an inconvenience? How did you see it at first, as an adventure or an inconvenience?  Does it feel the same in hindsight?
I guess this could apply to our recent remodeling job. I had to take everything out of the bottom cabinets so the new counter top could be attached, the sink and faucet installed and next comes the wall tile. It is slightly inconvenient but also an adventure having some things in the dining room, others in the laundry room. I put the coffee pot on the breakfast table. Just had to remember where it all was. But the kitchen really is looking better with each new addition.
4.  A Wendy's Frosty, root beer in a frosty mug, or a frosted chocolate cupcake...of these three, which one is your favorite 'frosty' treat?
I have to pass on all three. I am not a fan of frosted cup cakes, hate root beer, and I had much rather have a milkshake than a frosty.
5. Would you say your life so far this year has been more like a circus or a symphony? Explain why.
This is just January 28, so of the last 4 weeks, I'd have to say a circus. See #3.
6. Since it's a 'snow day' here, what's your favorite song containing the word 'white'?
"I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas" is the only song that comes to mind
7. If you had to leave the city you currently live in, what would you find the hardest to leave behind?
My Daughter and grandchildren. I've already moved away from my daughter two times and the grandchildren once so I know how hard it is.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I really do plan to blog more often than I have this past week. I have been having problems with the computer screen going dark so it isn't all laziness. I worked with it for hours yesterday so hopefully the problem is solved. Keep you fingers crossed.
We had sunshine today and temperatures in the upper 50s. so wonderful!


  1. Being as far away from our sons as we are is the hardest thing so I can relate.

    God bless.
