Wednesday's Hodgepodge

Visit Joyce and join the fun!  

1. What question do you often ask yourself?

"What is wrong with me?!"  I often say that to myself when I make a mistake or do something stupid.  

2. Do you grow roses? What's your favorite color of rose?  Ever been given a dozen roses?  Where was the prettiest rose or rose garden you remember seeing?

No, I am not a gardener but I love roses, especially pale pink ones.  The prettiest roses I remember seeing were the ones in my wedding bouquet.  See:

3. Do you read the freshness dates on grocery store products?  Will you use eggs past their 'use by' date?  Take medication that's expired? Buy a dented can?

Yes, I read labels for freshness dates, almost obsessively ;)  I won't use food that is past it's use by date or medication either.  I will not buy a dented can and get upset if one gets dented in my pantry.  

4. Should athletes be role models?

If they are honest and hard working, why not?

5. Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay of Nepal became the first explorers to reach the top of Mt. Everest on this date (May 29) back in 1953. What's something you hope to achieve in your lifetime?

I hope to be a godly wife and mother and one who loves others and is kind.  To me, that is a great achievement.  

6. What would you do if you had twenty acres of land and the money to develop it any way you choose?

I would give a chunk of it to our church so we could build our own building and not have to rent.  Then I would build a house for my family and offer to do the same for any extended family that would like it.  I would build some kind of housing for those in need and some great outdoor space to enjoy God's beautiful creation.

7. If I invite you to a party with a 7 PM start time, what time will I actually see you there?

7:03, if it's up to me.  

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
Is anyone else feeling patriotic following Memorial Day?  We went to our town's parade and I teared up a few times.   ~Theresa


  1. I like your answer to # 5. I think that is most definitely a worthwhile achievment! In answer to #8-yes! I love the patriotic holidays. Enjoy your day!

  2. Hi, Theresa,

    What a good picture! Your bouquet is beautiful. I had light pink flowers in mine too. :-)

    We have a rose bush that's about the same color. Just the other day, my husband and I were talking about how pretty it is. He made a trellis for it because it's spreading out in all directions!

    I'm pretty meticulous about dates too. I live by the old adage, "When in doubt, throw it out!" However, I will use eggs if they pass the 'sink or float' test.

    I like the plans for your twenty acres.

    Hope you're having a good week!

  3. Oh, I love your wedding photo an what a beautiful bouquet. Love your time,7:03, now that is a good one. Great Random Thought.
    Have a wonderful Wednesday.

  4. Love your answer to number 5. The legacy that lasts is the legacy of love we leave behind. It seems to me there is a story to tell in that "if it's up to me" comment about being on time. Or maybe I'm just reading into it because I often have to wait, tapping my foot, for the other members of my family (hubs, I'm looking at you) to get going so we're not TOO late.

  5. I enjoyed your responses. I feel patriotic around Memorial Day and the 4th of July! It's a great bonding time for Americans, and a time when we realize just how darn lucky we are to live in this country despite our political differences.

  6. I do feel patriotic since Memorial Day and am glad that it's lasting longer than just the day of. I enjoyed your answers very much and your wedding bouquet was very pretty!

  7. Cute picture and the flowers are so pretty! I am pretty obsessive with the dates too. Like your answer on the athletes. It's how I feel but couldn't put it into those simple words. So nice to give your church a place to build.

  8. Great answer on #5 and yes I'm feeling patriotic. I now have my flag flying outside and that always makes me happy.

  9. Great wedding photo!! I love all things patriotic!!

  10. I've missed stopping by but have been busy with travels and life. I do not think we can have any greater accomplishment that the one you stated. Happy new week my dear!


Thank you for visiting. Please let me know you stopped by so I can be sure to come visit you. ~Theresa
