Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Do you like chili? Red or white? Beans or no beans? Spice or no spice? Toppings?

Red. With some beans, not too many. Flavorful but not hot. With Fritos (actually, I put them in the bowl first) and sprinkled with grated cheddar cheese.

2. Red~Orange~Gold...your favorite fall color?

Combination of red (the burgundy shade) combined with orange.

3. Who did you idolize when you were growing up?

There are some things that it's just wiser not to post on the world wide web. :-)

4. When was the last time you did something 'arts and craftsy'? Share please.

I made some bookmarks for my group at our Ladies Retreat a few years ago. I cheated because I did them on the computer, printed and laminated them, and then added a ribbon with some pretty beads. Arts and Crafts are so not my thing, as I indicated in my post about homecoming mums. Shudder.

5. What's a place that makes you really nervous?

I am not fond of parking facilities after dark.

6. Horse back riding...yay or nay (neigh?)

I'll pass.

7. What is your favorite cliche?

It drives my girl crazy if she complains about something and I say "It's a hard knock life." Sometimes I'll just hum the song (from the movie Annie.) I think it's a little gentler than saying, "Too bad, life's not fair," but I guess to a teen, it doesn't matter what words you use if that's the intended meaning!

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I loved Randy Alcorn's comments about speaking up, and if you haven't heard the inspiring story of Robertson McQuilkin’s care for his wife Muriel, you won't want to miss Randy's post here.

You're MY kind of arts & crafts kind of gal! ha!

Now I'm singing It's a Hard Knock Life : ) Your bookmarks sound crafty to me! Parking lots-that's a good answer.

Kathy - the link is fixed. Thanks for telling me!

Cathy said...

I think your book marks sound really cool. And yes, life's not fair and my teens hate to hear it too.

I serve chili with fritos and cheese also. No beans, though, which I have always said was the Texas way of making chili. Now you have me wondering...

I also like a dollop of sour cream on mine!

BTW, we call chili with fritos "Frito Pie." Yum!!!
