Wednesday Hodgepodge #51

1. Who taught you how to cook?

For the most part, my mom. Some of it intentionally, some of it just by my watching her as I talked to her about other things.

2. Have you been told you think too much? Are too much of a perfectionist? Are too sensitive? Were they right?

Yes, yes, yes, and yes. And I didn't even have to think about this answer!

3. As a child did you have a favorite blanket or toy? Tell about it.

I had a sock doll that my mom made that I slept with quite a long time into elementary school. I remember liking to have the nose button in my mouth. Of course, now that horrifies me, but it was sewed on securely and I obviously survived to adulthood without choking.

4. What 'institution' do you have the most faith in?

Well, the only institution than I can even really think of (well, besides the mental one!) is the institution of marriage, and I don't exactly have faith in the institution itself. My faith is in God who designed and created it and provides the strength and ability to persevere and honor the vows that were made.

5. Chrysanthemums-pansies-burning bush-ornamental cabbage...your favorite in an autumn garden?

Pansies, I guess.

6. What superpower do the kids in your neighborhood seem to posses?

Not too many kids in our neighborhood any more, so I guess I'd say the ability to disappear.

7. Are you a fan of the cranberry?

Yes. Love it with oranges, especially.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Lots of free goodies abounding. Check out my giveaway of Nancy Rue's latest book. Unexpected Dismounts, the second in her Reluctant Prophet series, Also if you have a Kindle or a Kindle app for your PC, iPhone or IPad, Allison Pittman's wonderful book For Time and Eternity (I told you about it here) is available FREE on Amazon, as are these books (just click the title to go to the free Kindle page): A Measure of Mercy by Lauraine Snelling, Love Finds You in Victory Heights, Washington by Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss, and Songbird Under a German Moon by Tricia Goyer.

I have to admit that I didn't even think of the institution of marriage. I guess I was thinking more along the line of organizations.

I laughed at your answer to #6.

Joyce said...

The button story made me laugh : ) I'm going to go get the free e-book now-thanks for the suggestion!


The button story was one of those priceless stories. Loved it. Thanks for the free ebook hint.

Zoanna said...

The button nose in your mouth. Funny! And yes, horrifying, but glad you survived:)

Bobbi said...

Thank you...I'm glad someone else took the "institution" question sort of like I did...I put none...cuz that's not where my FAITH is...I feel better now. Phew...thought I was weird for a bit there.

How does orange get with cranberry? In what form? Curious.

Mocha with Linda said...

Bobbi, I have a great cranberry recipe that has orange juice and a little bit of orange rind in it. I also love cranberry sauces/relishes that have orange in them.

Cathy said...

Thanks for the heads-up on the free Kindle books. I already had all of them except the Tricia Goyer book and now I have that.

I am hoping that the "Birthday Fairy" gets me a kindle ;) It's the only thing on my list!
