Wednesday Hodgepodge

It's Wednesday and time to party over at Joyce's From This Side of the Pond. She always has such delightful questions. I hate that I haven't been able to visit and read too many blogs lately and hope that will change soon!

1. Your favorite chocolate treat?

Any really good dark chocolate, especially with almonds in it.

2. What more than anything else makes you feel loved?

Finding this on my breakfast table yesterday morning:

You don't recognize it? Why, it's a Valentine's Day Flour Arrangement!

My man knows I love puns, he knew this was not the year to spend money on flowers (see #8), and he knew I needed something to laugh about!

3. Cherries or blueberries?

Cherries, I guess, especially if they are in a cobbler or pie.

4. What is the one trait you most want the leader of your country to possess?

Wisdom. Seems like that covers a lot of things. Wisdom should result in proper leadership, integrity, honoring God, etc., etc.

5. Are you a saver or a spender?

A little of both. I don't just spend indiscriminately but I'm not miserly.

6. If you gave a party for all of your friends would they already know each other?

No. I have friends from too many "hats" that I've worn.

7. Are you interested in antiques?

Not particularly. They are somewhat interesting to see, but I get enough of them relatively soon and I have no interest in collecting them.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

The aftermath of last week's car accident has been an interesting journey. The physical aches and soreness have subsided for the most part. The emotional impact, however, has caught me off guard and been harder to deal with. You name it, I've felt it: gratitude, grief, anger, frustration, judgment, discouragement, sadness, peace, fear, anxiety, pain,. . . etc., etc. God is using this to refine some areas of my heart that I would have preferred to keep hidden in their dark corners! And to top it all, shopping for a vehicle is a pain. We both hate the whole negotiating/deal-making "game"!

Your husband's sense of humor is priceless! LOVE it!!!

I totally agree with you about wisdom. I am not sure that we always see this trait in world leaders. That is very sad indeed.


I LOVE the "flour" arrangement. That is priceless! I laughed out loud when I read it and had to share it with my coffee group this morning....they all got a huge kick out of it.

Oh my word-that is better than any 'flower' arrangement I've ever seen. I love it!

I love that flour arrangement. He spent a lot of time on that one. Hope you get some good use out of it.

That photo would have made a good Punny Monday!

I hate car shopping, too. My husband is a master negotiator, but I hate it.

I love your #2. Too funny

So sorry you had an accident and I hope you feel better soon and find the car you want too.

Kathy said...

I just love a man with a sense of humor! What a unique "flour" arrangement.

Best wishes with the car shopping--I hope you find the perfect vehicle at the perfect price :)

Michelle said...

You have a wonderful husband with a great sense of humor.

I pray you'll be able to find that `perfect` vehicle soon. Without too much hassle.

Beth said...

Loved the flour arrangement. I somehow missed the post about your accident! So glad that you both walked away---God was good in that situation. Praying for a quick fix with a different vehicle.

I know my Jeep probably is not destined to make it through another inspection, so this summer we will have to shop for a new 4X4 vehicle. Not looking forward to that at all.

#2 -- Amoeba is wishing he had thought of that!

#8 -- sounds like you are suffering a bit from shock. It took me a couple of months to work through all the emotional effects of my car accident. It is good that you have your hubby to help you car shop. My response was to buy a big, heavily armored tank, which was expensive to purchase and maintain.
