Waking Up With The Hodgepodge

It's only Wednesday and it seems like this week has lasted a year. That's what happens when you have to go back to school and put your room together for another year. Especially when you're like me and decide to change every dang thing. Sheesh.

I had to take time for the Hodgepodge though. Because I love it so much! I'll get around to everyone ASAP! 

1. The best part of waking up is Foldgers in your cup! LOL That was the first thing that came to mind and I just couldn't resist. The best part of waking up is a little doggy giving me morning kisses! And the fact that I get another day to be alive, of course. 

2.  Given a choice, which animal interaction would you most like to experience (or for those non-adventurers...which would you dislike the least?)Swim with the dolphins at one of several locations in the Florida Keys, a lion encounter ten minutes from Victoria Falls (Africa), or a day at a remote base camp high in the Big Sur wilderness via the Ventana Wildlife Society helping track California condors? I'm going to go with tracking the condors. 

3. What is something you fear about 'old age'? What is something you look forward to? I fear getting closer and closer to the end. I'm not looking forward to any part of it yet.

4. Hot sauce...are you a fan? If you answered yes, what's something you make/eat that must have hot sauce? On a scale of 1-10 how hot is too hot? Nope. Only Birdie and Deanie really appreciate hot sauce. On the scale, 1 is too hot for me. I prefer my tongue to NOT be set ablaze.  

5. It's been said that children learn what they live. What do you think children learn at your house? Nothing. Because there are no children living here at the moment. When the nephew's kids come over I hope they learn the importance of laughter.   

6. What's your favorite movie with a number in it's title? I'm going to go with Four Weddings and a Funeral. I did enjoy that movie. 

7. Saturday (August 16th) is National Tell a Joke Day...share one here. I think I'll just share something from Robin Williams. I can't even begin to tell y'all how much I loved him and how heavy my heart is right now. Every time I heard/saw him I laughed until I cried and my stomach hurt but I just couldn't stop. Depression sucks. And I'm so sorry it took him down. 

8.  Insert your own random thought here. If y'all go to THIS LINK you can read about my BFF from high school publishing her first murder mystery novel and enter to win a free copy just by leaving a comment!

Teachers are back at school this week and it has been BRUTAL so far! I'm almost looking forward to the kids coming back so things will slow down a bit. Almost. 

Have a great rest of the week, y'all!  


  1. Awesome movie choice! I agree...Robin Williams will be sadly missed. Loved him!

  2. I also love your movie choice in #6. Good one!! I, too, am very sad about Robin Williams suicide. Such a tragic loss. It is another good Hodgepodge! Hump Day....good luck with the rest of your week. Teachers are a special blessing to our lives. Hang in there!

  3. I agree with your answers concerning 'old age'.
    I agree, it's very sad about Robin Williams. He was one of a kind.
    Wishing you the best school year--ever!

  4. Good answer to #7, Pam. You said it well. And I too hope kids leave my house having learned that we laugh a lot, and that humor is a wonderful thing. Good luck in the school days ahead.

  5. Oh I forgot all about Four Weddings and a of my all time favorites. Hope you have a good year. I'm at my daughter's and she's been busy in her classroom all week (all summer really)...she meets her students tomorrow afternoon at a back to school event and she's pretty excited. Hard to top her class from last year. They were one of the best in the history of the school : ) So heartbreaking to hear about Robin Williams. So much sadness in the world right now. Take care!

  6. That was my first thought too on waking up! That is one of my favorite movies for #6. I loved Robin Williams, have seen every movie of his. He will be missed :(


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! It makes me feel connected to everyone even though we may live far apart! Have a wonderful day!
