Wednesday's Hodgepodge

Visit Joyce and join the fun!

1.  Did you make someone laugh yesterday? Was it intentional?

Yes, and yes.  I try to make my children laugh every day. 

2. What's a simple question with a complicated answer?

What is the sky blue? 

3. Rhododendrons or
 have to choose. Are either currently blooming in your yard?

Azaleas!  There is a beautiful bright pink azalea bush that has bloomed outside my bedroom window.  For some reason the one in my backyard hasn’t bloomed yet.  On that note, I have two of the same bushes in my front yard, one on each side of the front door.  One side has bloomed and the other hasn’t.  Isn’t that strange?

4. May 21st is National Waitstaff Day. Have you ever worked as a waiter/waitress? How would you rate the experience? What was the best/worst part of the job?

No, I haven’t.  I would think the best part would be the tips and the worst would be rude customers. 

5. What fashion trend for women should be outlawed? How about one for men?

It should be outlawed for a woman’s bra straps to be shown on purpose.  I don’t care if they are skinny, brightly colored, or whatever, it is still an undergarment and not meant to be shown.  It looks absolutely ridiculous.   For men I would have to say the pants on the ground look.  You know the one where their pants are hanging down and their boxers are showing.  That too is absolutely ridiculous. 

6. Name a writer who inspires tell us why.

The apostle Paul inspires me.  He calls himself the chief of sinners yet was used so mightily by God. 

7. What well known quote or saying sums up your plans for today or this week?

“Do the next thing”.  I have lots to do and if I think too much about it all I can get overwhelmed so instead I need to just keep doing the next thing and it will get done. 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.


  1. Paul! That's a great answer! His writing inspires me too : ) I think shrubs in the Northeast are still in recovery mode, and things might not bloom as they normally do here. Enjoy your day!

  2. I love your quote and plan to write it down. I am struggling with the same thing right now. I need to get the garden planted, but it has been cold here in Wisconsin. I need to get the landscaping and driveway done from the basement work, school, cleaning, Birthday's coming up.....the list goes on and on. :-)

    I also like your random thought. Amen!

  3. Theresa, thank you for visiting my blog this morning. I think you are the only one I've read this morning who answered with a Bible contributor. Shame on us! Have a very blessed day.

  4. Yes to the bra straps showing. I haven't understood that trend. But then I am old! A great answer with Paul!

  5. You know if you watch those guys with those low pants they can't even walk right! Crazy fashion statement. "Do the next thing" is a great quote. I agree, I spend most days being overwhelmed and accomplishing nothing at all. Make a list and take things one day at a time. Easier said than done! Amen on your random......

  6. Wonderful reminder for #7. Sometimes I just feel sick. I need to remind myself of this! I agree with you on St. Paul! And of course the fashion thing.

  7. Paul has inspired me over and over as well. Good answer. And I am 100% with you on the bra straps. The worst is a spaghetti-strap tank top with a bra under it. I just absolutely do not get why anyone WANTS their bra to show, let alone a LOT of it. Super tacky, super immodest. I just want to throw a hoodie over girl or woman who makes their underwear outerwear!

  8. I like your #7 too. I don't get how young men can wear their trousers that way. It must be so uncomfortable.


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