An Ideal Optimist Hodgepodge


Visit Joyce and join the fun!

1. Realist, idealist, optimist, pessimist...which one are you? Elaborate. 

I am a realist.  At least I think I am.  I call idealists dreamers.  I try to be an optimist but it doesn't come naturally for me.  

2. What's something currently on your wish list? 

An air fryer basket and pan to use in my new range which has a built in air fryer.  I used the air fryer feature to cook chicken tenders but they weren't crispy.  I think they need the basket to let the air circulate properly.  

3. Three things on this week's shopping list? 

Apples, oatmeal and tissues.  

4. According to Trip Advisor here's a list of the top ten things to do in the US this summer-

Chicago Architecture River CruiseSkip the Line Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Tour, New York In A Day  guided sightseeing tour, Charleston's Old South Historic Horse and Carriage tourGrand Canyon helicopter tourFull day iconic sights of LA, Beverly Hills, Beaches and more, D.C. at Dusk guided night tour, Beneath the Streets Underground History tour (Seattle)New Orleans Swamp and Bayou Boat tour, Gangsters and Ghosts tour in more about each excursion in the link here. 

Of the ten attractions listed which do you find most appealing? Have you already experienced anything on this list? 

I would choose Charleston's Old South Historic Horse and Carriage tour but the heat might do me in.  I would prefer to visit SC in the fall.  I haven't experienced anything on this list.  

5. Besides home and work where do you spend the most time? 

I am home most of the time.  Besides running quick errands I go to church each Sunday so that would be where I spend the most time. 

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

I have missed a few weeks at the Hodgepodge and glad to be back.  Thanks Joyce!  


  1. It's nice to see you back! Yes, Charleston in the fall : ) It's definitely humid but is such a charming city.

  2. Hi Theresa, I would prefer the Charleston tour in the fall and not when the humidity is a killer. Happy Hodgepodge!

  3. We've been looking at ovens and one I saw had an air fryer feature. I'd love to go to SC too but chose the Louisiana swamp tour

  4. Hi!! I missed the past few weeks of the HP too. Spring has sprung here and I have been in the garden.
    I would choose the Louisiana swamp tour, I am fascinated with alligators.


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