Wednesday's Hodgepodge

Visit Joyce and join the fun!

1. What does retirement mean to you? Are you planning for it, not thinking about it, looking forward to it, or dreading it?

Retirement doesn't mean much to me.  I'm not thinking about it. 

2. It's International Guitar you play? Does anyone in your family play? What's a song you especially like to hear played on the guitar or a favorite song featuring the guitar?

No, I do not play guitar, or any other instrument for that matter.  No one in my immediate family plays.  A favorite song is "Who'll Stop The Rain" by Creedence Clearwater Revival. 

3. What's your comfort food?

My comfort food is ice cream.  Since going dairy free I switched to "ice cream" made from coconut milk.   I am starting another much needed round of Whole 30 so that is out for the next 30 days.  My diet will consist of meat, veggies, fruits, nuts and healthy oils.  I've done it before so am hoping to do it again. 

4. What's one activity or area of your life where you absolutely never procrastinate?

I asked my husband since I couldn't think of anything and he said "helping out a friend in trouble".  Aww, isn't that sweet. 

5. Who does the grocery shopping in your house? Does your local store bag the groceries for you or is it a do-it-yourself kind of place? Do you like someone packing your groceries?

My husband does most of the grocery shopping.  He started going for me when I had really bad dizziness and has continued since.  Sometimes I'll go along with him but usually I make the list and he goes to get it.  I haven't seen a bagger in a long time.  The cashier will pack if you wait but usually I am packing while they are ringing.  I don't like someone packing my groceries because I pack them in a way that makes putting them away easier. 

6. What's the coolest thing you've seen in nature?

I'd say dolphins jumping in and out of the ocean as we were driving to the Florida Keys. 

7. Share a favorite quote about home.

"There is no place like home." 

8. Insert your own random thought here.

We woke up to snow on the ground on Monday.  The past few days have been cold.  It just doesn't seem right to have flowers blooming, beautiful blue skies with puffy white clouds and a winter coat on ;)  At least the sun is shining and the birds are still chirping :) 


  1. Snow in April isn't right : ) It's actually been chilly here in the mornings too. I turn the heat on in the a.m. and the air conditioning in the afternoon. Crazy! But no snow for which I'm grateful!

  2. Gee, snow. And I was hoping for a few more cold days. I have a friend who does Whole 30. It has changed their whole family's eating habits. Stay warm. I hope you are over the dizzies.

  3. Sure hope your snow isn't long-lived. We're supposed to get up to the high 60's or low 70's today. I'm planning on working in my flower beds.

  4. Hi,
    I like your home quote. :-)
    I would love to see dolphins, I bet that was amazing.
    Cold and snow here too. Boo Hoo
    We still have our winter jackets on as well.

  5. Oh, I love your song choice. Good music!
    Snow in April just doesn't seem right, but at least the sun is shinning :)

  6. We had snow too. I can't take it anymore!!! You have a awful sweet hubby! Have a great week!

  7. My nephew writes music, plays a guitar, and performs in many places. Like the song.

  8. You don't need to think about it but definitely plan for it! Helping a friend in trouble is so awesome. Great quote. Snow....oh my!
