Wednesday's Hodgepodge

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

1. It is officially fall here in North America...I realize not everyone who participates in the Hodgepodge lives in North America but if you do, what's your favorite memory of Summer 2011? If you're not in North America, what's your favorite memory of the season just ending on your side of the world?

My favorite summer memory is celebrating my birthday with my husband and kids. We ordered take out and ate it at the beach overlooking The Long Island Sound. After we went down to the beach and the kids played while I relaxed in my chair on the sand. We went home, showered, put on our PJs and had cake :)

2. Your favorite nut? You know I mean the edible kind, right?

Walnuts. I love them on ice cream, in maple syrup, plain and cracking them out of the shell. Growing up we always had them on our living room table during the holidays. I loved cracking them and digging out the pieces.

3. What activity puts your sense of balance to the test?

Well, probably all activities since I came down with dizziness about four years ago. It is better but still I have to be careful and avoid certain triggers. If I had to pick one activity I would say the Wii game where you walk along a tightrobe.

4. How would you describe your sense of humor?

I would say I have a good sense of humor although I can be sarcastic. I love to laugh.

5. September 28th is National Ask a Stupid Question Day...what's your stupid question?

Why has a day been set apart for asking stupid questions? Don't people don't that everyday?!

6. Roller skates~hula hoop~jump rope...which activity would you most enjoy? Yes, you have to choose.

Roller Skates! I haven't roller skated in years but used to love roller skating at the rink and on my parents' basement floor!

7. What's your most sentimental possession?

My engagement ring. I love having it as a reminder of the dreams we shared before we were married.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Yesterday I went to Rite-Aid and had the kids with me. There were gross Halloween decorations everywhere. I had to tell them to look straight ahead to avoid the goblins and such. I don't celebrate Halloween anymore and hate having to see those decorations everywhere. I used to have to avoid the stores the week before but now it seems like the decorations start more than a month before. Really...can't we just enjoy the beginning of autumn?!


  1. I agree with your answer to question 5 bout stupid question day.. people do ask stupid questions every day, even me i suppose sometimes.

    I also agree with the Halloween decorations. I want just fall decorations hard to come by and I have even seen Christmas decorations out... What happened to Thanksgiving???

  2. It sounds like you had a wonderful birthday :)

    I agree with you on the Halloween decorations. We don't "do" Halloween at our house either, and it bothers me that every time I go out, I am bombarded with all of those gory decorations.

  3. Your birthday activities sound like a perfect way to celebrate.

  4. So with you on the halloween decorations. And I wanted to tell you, love your new profile picture.
    You are so beautiful and I love your hair!

  5. No matter how people feel about Halloween I do not get why they have any of it out so early??? Do people actually buy Halloween candy in August? It's crazy! A friend sent me a picture a couple of weeks ago from Walmart....decorated Christmas trees in the September. We can never just enjoy the season we're in it seems.

    Okay, done ranting : ) Enjoy your day!
