Wednesday Hodgepodge

Hey Guys!

Thanks to Joyce for her efforts to get us all on the same page every week!

1. Americans will celebrate Labor Day this coming weekend. Do you know what we’re actually celebrating? (without consulting your friends Google or wikipedia, ahem) What’s a project you’re currently ‘laboring‘ over?

We have finally finished the backyard project we were working on for two years, so HALELUJAH for that!

I have a project to start. We are going to redo Abby’s bedroom and bathroom. There is painting to do and new things to put up, a new counter in the bath, curtains and blinds. It should probably take me another two years!

2. Labor Day also signals the unofficial end of summer for most of us…what summer food will you miss the most? If you’re in the southern hemisphere feel free to substitute winter for summer.

Probably cherries.

3. A well known proverb states, ‘It’s easier to seek forgiveness than ask permission.’ Your thoughts?

I have heard this saying before but I have to say it seems wrong to me. When you go in with that attitude, it suggests that you probably know you are doing something you should not, and therefore should refrain. Just my thought.

4. Food critic, film critic, book critic, art critic….which hat would you most like to wear?

The book critic hat sounds most appealing.

5. When you were a kid, who (besides your parents) was your favorite adult?

Probably my Grandma Georgia, she was a fun, loving, wise gal.

6. The astronaut, Neil Armstrong, passed away last week. He was regarded as a hero by many generations of people all around the world. Do we still have modern day heroes? What makes someone a hero?

I think we have heroes, but they may not be the ones our culture considers a hero. I think heroes are always someone who does something with honor, integrity and a moral backbone, something for the good of mankind. Just because you are successful, famous or wealthy doesn’t mean you are a hero. How you conduct your life is important. A hero makes someone look up to them for the right reasons. Otherwise they are just notorious.

7. I never get tired of __________________.

A kiss from Honey, a hug from our kids, a snuggle from the kitties, God’s forgiveness and grace.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Oh.My.Word. How did I get so old?


Thanks for stopping by!

    Getting older isn’t all bad : ) The body rebels though, just sayin.

    We hardly had any cherries this summer…the price seemed to stay high, normally it comes down mid-summer. I will definitely miss the summer fruit. There isn’t nearly the variety in winter.

    Good luck with your next project 🙂 We have learned that house projects always take about twice as long as we think they will! Cherries, yumM!

    I REFUSE to get an AARP card! they keep sending me mail to sign up – and I keep putting it in the circular file. I am NOT old enough to get one of their cards (at least that’s what I’m telling everyone one…. ha!)

    Keep getting the AARP cards in the mail and keep throwing them away!
