Wednesday Hodgepodge

I love Wednesdays because that means it's time to join Joyce for the Wednesday Hodgepodge. I'm always amazed at the unending fount of questions she seems to have!

1. Have you ever been 'asked' to report for jury duty? Were you chosen to serve? If not, were you happy or disappointed?

Once, within the past year. I have always wanted to serve, but I had some scheduling issues that made it really bad timing, and I was able to be excused.

2. On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being very), how mechanically inclined are you? Give an example to back up your answer.

I would say an 8. I was always able to figure out how to work the VCR ( mine NEVER blinked 12:00; that drives me nuts!), I've put a few things together, and I was the tech person for our ladies retreats and Bible Studies several years - running the computer, sound, lights, etc.

3. Beets-cabbage-cauliflower-butternut squash....of the four, which is your favorite fall vegetable?

Butternut squash. I've only had that variety of squash once that I know of, but I generally like squash. The other three choices Joyce gave? Blech!

4. What do you recommend to overcome self-pity?

Thankfulness - in other words, thanking God for my blessings, not focusing on what I don't have.

5. Do you enjoy classical music?

In moderation. I really like it if it's my girl playing her viola! I'm not real fond of the interminably long pieces.

6. October is National Book Month...what's on your reading list this month?

Oh, I've been reading some great books and have some more in my stack! I just finished Deeanne Gist's Love on the Line (review coming next week), and I'm eagerly anticipating Richard Mabry's Lethal Remedy and Tamera Alexander's A Lasting Impression! There are a few more as well, but you'll just have to keep an eye on my blog to find out what those are!

7. What is your idea of 'cute'?


8. Insert your own random thought here.

Took my girl and a couple of her friends the other night to see Courageous on their school holiday earlier this week. Absolutely loved it! (Javier was hilarious!) And I don't think I've showed you that I got to meet Alex Kendrick and Kevin Downes (who played Shane, the partner of Kendrick's character Adam Mitchell) when I was in Atlanta this summer!

Thankfulness, what an antidote to self pity. Thanks for this one.

I love all the book ideas I get by reading your blog. My oldest played the violin...lovely classical music now but when they first start out on those stringed instruments-yikes! Lots of squeaky Ode to Joys : )


I have gotten great book reading ideas from your blog and I am so glad. I have also joined blogging for books thanks to you. Great selfpity reducer. Thanks for the offering.

You always have the best book recommendations and get to meet the best people.
I'm excited for you!

I definitely want to see Courageous. We hate paying the price of admission to the movie theater, and with DH's poor hearing, we always wait for movies to come out on DVD. I can't wait until it comes out on DVD.

ok, wouldn't your answer to #2 actually mean you are "technically" inclined not "mechanically"? just sayin! :)

I have learned to love classical music with my son playing in the symphony....kind of like I learned to love Baseball since I married a man who played and watched it all the time!
