Wednesday Hodgepodge #40


Wow - this is the 40th edition of Joyce's Wednesday Hodgepodge. Forty weeks of coming up with questions for us to answer. Way to go, Joyce!!

You'd think after this many weeks I wouldn't still occasionally start typing "Random" in the title like I did pre-Hodgepodge when Lid of 2nd Cup of Coffee hosted the Random Dozen!

Note to self: Random is for question #8, not the title!

So let's see what Joyce has for us today!

1. Using what's in your fridge right now what sort of meal would you be able to make for guests who are knocking at the front door this very minute?

Chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and gravy. My boy loves that and it's one of the meals I'm fixing this last week before we move him to college.

2. What is something about yourself that you hope will change but that probably never will?

I hope I will wake up one morning and just love cleaning house like a few weird women I know.

Yeah, right.

3. What's something about yourself that you hope will never change?

My brilliant wit. (har har!)

Seriously, my caring spirit for others.

4. Do you usually send serious or funny greeting cards? Why?

A mix. I like sending serious ones, but that gets a little overdone. Most of the time I like the ones somewhere in the middle - not too sappy but not too casual. It also depends on the recipient.

5. Bird watching, shell gathering, or star gazing- your choice for whiling away the hours?

Of those three, star gazing. And music-listening.

6. Do you double or triple check things? If so, what?

Double-check, sometimes. Things like turning off the oven, lights, locking the door. Proofing an email or blog post. Triple-check, rarely if ever.

7. What's your favorite place for people watching?

Wherever there are people. Restaurants, grocery stores, airports, hospitals - I'm not picky. People are fascinating.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I think my girl is finally over her concussion. She felt really good yesterday. Woohoo!!

I occasionally catch myself writing 'randon dozen' too.

I'd love to be standing on your porch right now : ) Glad your girl is feeling better!

Susan said...

Haha. Love number 2. Are there really women like that?

I could make chicken marsala...my boy has requested that before he leaves this weekend.

You are a GOOD mama...my girl requested chicken fried steak this week and I said "NO.....it is way too hot!!"

Michelle said...

I am finding lots of great meal ideas for #1

My sister has always loved cleaning.
I didn't get that gene :)

#8 is a great answer to prayer

Cathy said...

So glad your girl is feeling better. Dinner sounds great!

You are lucky your son only asked for one meal... My daughter has planned the menu for the next week and half until she leaves...

Kathy ... better known as Nana said...

You DO have a brilliant wit -- hence your answer to #2! ha!ha!

Glad your daughter is doing better!

Mary said...

Had to laugh at your #2!

Susan said...

Ya, I would love to wake up one morning and say "hey I'm going to wash the windows, scrub the floors and even get on my knees to clean that tub" it's likely never going to happen but like you, I wish it would.

Well those were fun to read! It's been awhile since I have been to your blog.....so sorry. I am just so busy. But it was nice to look around a bit. I enjoyed reading about your Atlanta trip. Can't believe we just missed seeing each other!!! And your daughter had a concussion????? What happened?? Ha Ha oh I wish I would wake up and enjoy cleaning also! And yes you do have a caring spirit....don't ever change that. :)

I'm coming to your house for dinner!

Glad your daughter is beginning to feel better :)

I am so with you on #2!! I do enjoy cleaning...sometimes. But, I don't like it to the point where I look forward to it as soon as I wake up. That's just a little too much for me.
