Birthday Hodgepodge

We've got a birthday today! I put the slideshow in the random thoughts! I have a ton of truly random thoughts, but Birdie gets the spotlight. It's her day! 

Happy Hodgepodge, y'all! 


1. What's something that has recently 'tried your patience'? Well, I teach in an elementary school so, take your pick. 

2. Do you think patience comes to us naturally or is it something you have to learn as you grow? On a scale of 1-10 generally how patient are you? (1=I blow up at the drop of a hat and 10=I've got all the time in the world). Patience seems to come naturally to some people, but I do believe that it can be learned as we grow. For example, I used to be a 1 on this scale and now, I'm a 2. LOL No, I'm about a 7 now. 

3. Share about a time when you felt like you could fly. Or a time you wished you could fly. Or a time you felt like you were flying. I made a request recently that made me feel so free that I probably could have taken flight. 

4. Your favorite song with the word fly in the title or lyrics, or your favorite song that relates to flying in some way? I don't have a favorite 'flight' song. Steve Miller's FLY LIKE AN EAGLE reminds me of a fun time in college and my silly brother. MIDNIGHT FLYER  by, the Eagles is a winner, but I love nearly everything they did. I also love anything sung by Frank Sinatra including, FLY ME TO THE MOON and COME FLY WITH ME. But, for today, I'm leaning towards this one:




5. What's in your fall picnic basket and where are we picnicking in your neck of the woods this time of year? I like wine and cheese and various snacks in my picnic basket. I won't be picnicking in these parts in the fall, however. It's too hot and there is no fall beauty. I'd have to head north.

6.  Carpentry, electrical, plumbing, landscaping...which skill would you most like to possess and how would you put that skill to use today? All of the above. And I would use them to gut the bathrooms...No, I would remodel/update the entire house. Because it is in DIRE need. 

7. What's something you think is too expensive to justify buying lately? A new car. Though I desperately need one. 

8. Insert your own random thought here. Hey! It's this kid's birthday today!

  4. Great "fly" song choices! I love them all! And just a friendly reminder that you (and I) live in a wonderful place - with amazing beauty and people actually come here to vacation. Hot? Yes at times... but come February I will be anxiously waiting for heat. I love living in SC! Happy b-day to your Birdie!

    1. I am reminded about tourists every time I leave my house. LOL I've lived in the low-country for 30 years but it has never become a part of my heart. I still prefer the upstate. It's nice enough, but I much prefer the beauty of autumn and the more frequent snow of winter that I had growing up. Heat and I are NOT BFFs. :) Thanks!

  5. "Fly Like an Eagle" was my choice, too, Pam! Happy Birthday to Birdie!

    1. Thanks! Yes they are! We had to get a new fridge, but I found one on Craigslist that some really rich person was getting rid of. It is brand new, they simply changed their minds. It's a $1500 fridge that we got for $500. Not too bad. :)
