It is Wednesday and it is time for the Hodgepodge.
Joyce asks the questions.
We answer the questions.
1. "The cure for anything is salt water-tears, sweat, or the sea." (Isak Dinesan) Would you agree? Of the three, which has 'cured' you most recently?
I would agree. All three have worked for me.
Of the three, sweat has worked for me recently. I had two closets that were driving me crazy. Saturday I grabbed Jeremy and we got to work. Call me crazy, I just love going in and peeking at the organized closets.
2. What's something you can't eat without salt? Do you normally salt your food a lot, a little, or not at all?
I can not eat popcorn without salt or my homemade french fries.
I also like salt on my hard boiled eggs.
I will add a little salt to a meal.
3. Sands of time, bury your head in the sand, built on sand, or draw a line in the sand...which sandy phrase could best be applied to something in your life right now?
|Our boys playing with kelp ... a fun thing to play with when your from Wisconsin and this is your first visit to the ocean.|
draw a line in the sand...
I am going to be more firm with myself regarding, it is alright to say "No". I am going to be more careful about what I volunteer to do in 2017 and how much I add to my calendar. Slowing down and enjoying life is becoming more and more important to me. Taking time for relationships. It was interesting, my oldest son asked me this question " Mom, do you think in our culture today we have more shallow relationships?"
4. A favorite book, movie, or song with an island setting or theme?
Pirates of the Caribbean
5. Yesterday-did you run your day or did it run you? How so?
I ran the day. Yippee ... now if you would have asked me this last week!
6. You're on an island holiday. Will I most likely find you parked in a beach chair, shopping in town, on the back of a jet ski, or snorkeling off the back of a catamaran?
I will walk the beach for awhile, I love to walk along the shores when I have an opportunity.
Then I will park myself in a beach chair.
7. What do you think we humans most take for granted?
Thinking back on the discussion I shared with my oldest son, I am going to say relationships. I think we take them for granted, we forget they need love and care.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
A friend shared a quote with me that her father would share with her after each visit.
Always look forward, never backwards
what is gone is gone.
Keep an open mind. You can learn so much from others, however old you are.
Let it be. Only worry about things you can change, leave everything else alone.
