Wednesday's Hodgepodge

I am linking up today for Wednesday Hodgepodge hosted by Joyce.

1. Using what's in your frig right now what sort of meal would you be able to make for guests who are knocking at the front door this very minute?

Pancakes and sausage- flour, baking powder, sugar, eggs, milk, butter, maple syrup, frozen Jones breakfast sausage- check! It is an easy go-to quick recipe. Kids especially love it no matter what time of day.

2. What is something about yourself that you hope will change but that probably never will?

Why is it that I think of my weight right away? I am sure this question is looking for some internal quality but honestly that is what came to mind. I have never been one who can eat whatever I want and not gain weight. I don't think that will change, although it would be real nice :)

3. What's something about yourself that you hope will never change?

My love for people. I am a loyal friend. I like to think I am dependable.

4. Do you usually send serious or funny greeting cards? Why?

Usually serious cards. I am somewhat of a mush and I cry at Hallmark commercials...need I say more?!

5. Bird watching, shell gathering, or star gazing- your choice for whiling away the hours?

Star gazing. I love sitting out on a cool night (as long as the mosquitoes have gone for the season). I look at each star and know that God has placed it exactly where it is in the sky.

6. Do you double or triple check things? If so, what?

Who, me? LOL! The door to make sure it is locked, the stove to make sure it is off, the hair dryer to make sure it is unplugged. I am sure there is more but those were the ones that immediately came to mind.

7. What's your favorite place for people watching?

The park. I love watching people interact with children. It is so sweet to hear parents and grandparents talking sweetly to their children and grandchildren. I realize that isn't always the case....but that is what I like to see.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Today my husband and I went to pick up that armoire that I wanted. On the way back we took the parkway next to the ocean. I opened the window to smell the salt in the air. I couldn't help but put my feet up and let the wind toss my hair all over. It felt like we were on vacation in some exotic place. Isn't it funny how many places all around us are so amazing yet we don't often go there? At least I know I don't. I definitely want to make a point of getting to the beach more often and bringing my kids to the ocean.


  1. I'm with you on number 2... I've been jogging to drop some pounds (after the infamous button incident) but recently I feel like I'm stuck. Could be all the junk food I've been eating. I just love food doo much so I skipped to the SECOND thing I'd change about me LOL.

    I know... I love those hallmark commercials too... especially the mother's day commercials oh those get me right here.

    I wish I had a beach near me. The only thing I smell when driving is exhaust from the car in front of me or trash or someones cut grass that's itching my nose. Ok see, those are all negative things ugh!!

  2. I'm glad you got to pick up your armoire! It sounds like you made a nice trip of it. I've had your pancakes and they are yummy!

  3. Wish I lived near a parkway that ran beside the ocean. Sigh. Sounds so nice.

    I love pancakes and sausage!

  4. Your drive by the ocean sounds lovely. Lucky you to live close by! Enjoy your Wednesday.

  5. Oooo....pancakes! It's breakfast time, can I come over? :)

  6. I thought of the same thing for #2, but didn't put it. I keep thinking that one day something will kick in and I will loose weight, but it doesn't happen.

  7. I want pancakes... I love breakfast for dinner!

  8. I love seeing people interact with kids too. So sweet :)

  9. I love to people watch too, my favorite place is the Mall of America. So interesting. =) Also, it sounds like you thoroughly enjoyed life on your car ride. love it

  10. I'm so with you on many of your answers! I love star gazing and hallmark commericials require tissues for me, too!
