Hello, it is Wednesday. It is time for the Hodgepodge!
Joyce asks the questions.
We answer the questions.
1. Describe love using all five senses.
When the sun begins to crawl over the horizon and when the sun crawls back under the horizon.
I love the sunrise and the sunset.
When rain drops gently fall on my window at night while I fall asleep.
I love a rainy night.
A good coffee with a swirl of cream and chocolate.
I have been known to have coffee and chocolate for breakfast.
The comfort of my own bed.
After a getaway, the feeling of crawling into my own bed....LOVE!
The smell of fresh cut hay in a farm field.
That wonderful smell brings back loving memories of summers growing up on a farm.
2. February is Canned Food Month. What's your favorite food that comes straight from a can?
3. A principal in a UK school recently sent home a letter to parents requesting they (the parents!) dress appropriately when escorting their children to/from school (basically saying please don't wear your pajamas) You can read the letter here. It's gotten a lot of publicity, both positive and negative. Your thoughts? And do/did you ever make the school run (or hit Starbucks, Walmart, etc) in your pjs?
I agree with the principal. I think we can make an effort to dress.
I have always put on town clothing to run errands.
Growing up on a farm, we had "barn clothes". My mom always had us change into town clothes when heading in to do errands.
4. Crew neck, V-neck, turtleneck, scoop neck...which is most prevalent in your wardrobe?
5. I read here recently a list of four things to avoid so you wake up happier. They were late night snacks, hitting the snooze button, social media just before bed/upon waking, checking emails.
Are you guilty of any of these behaviors? Which on that list do you need to work harder at avoiding?
I am guilty of peeking at Instagram before bed.
6. Share something you remember about a house you lived in as a child? Of all the homes you lived in as a child, which did you love best?
I lived in three homes growing up. One I do not remember, it was a trailer home on the family farm. After a terrible storm our family moved into the main farm house and my grandma moved into town.
The main farm house was my home most of my life.
My parents built a new home on the farm and we moved in when I was 15 years old.
I have many memories of the old farm house. I will share the one my boys like best for me to recall.
Bats! The house was full of bats. My sister and I would have to watch for bats as we climbed into bed. We would scream for my dad if we had a bat flying in our room. My dad would come to the rescue.
One night my sister and I were in the kitchen doing dishes, my parents were in the barn. A bat was in the kitchen. We had huge bottom cupboards in the kitchen. I put my sister inside the cupboard and ran to the barn to get dad.
7.Your favorite movie based on a true story?
This is a hard one, because I have so many.
I will go with 42 tonight as I write up this post.
In 1946, Branch Rickey (Harrison Ford), legendary manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers, defies major league baseball's notorious color barrier by signing Jackie Robinson (Chadwick Boseman) to the team. The heroic act puts both Rickey and Robinson in the firing line of the public, the press and other players. Facing open racism from all sides, Robinson demonstrates true courage and admirable restraint by not reacting in kind and lets his undeniable talent silence the critics for him.
I love Harrison Ford in this movie. And I love the story.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
One thing I believe for sure. A big reason we're on this earth is do something for others.
