A Hodgepodge of Love



It's always fun when Wednesday comes around and it's time to join Joyce for the Wednesday Hodgepodge! I love seeing what questions she comes up with each week. With Valentine's Day next week, love is definitely in the air!

1. What is something you are loving right now?

Playing Hanging with Friends and Words with Friends. It's fun to play a game with friends even when we can't be together!

2. Paris, Venice, New York, and Rome are considered four of the most romantic cities in the world. Which one would you most like to visit?

I guess New York. None of the others particularly appeal. And I've always wanted to do the whole NY thing -- stay in Manhattan, visit Macy's and FAO Schwarz, see a show or two on Broadway, etc.

3. Are you a romantic?

Definitely.

4. What's your favorite love story made for the Big Screen?

I've always loved The Sound of Music.

5. Everyone loves Pooh bear and friends...which character are you most like and why? Click here for help in answering this question.

6. What's the best chocolate something you've ever eaten?

I never can remember things like that. I don't order dessert a lot, but I know I've had some good chocolate desserts on special occasions. But honestly, these are pretty hard to beat!


7. Share a favorite quote about love.

I considered Elizabeth Barrett Browning and others, but you can't top this!


8. Insert your own random thought here.

Today is composer John Williams' 80th birthday. What a gift he has given to the world with so many incredible pieces of music. Of course, there are plenty of exuberant pieces that come to mind -- Star Wars, Raiders of the Lost Ark, the Olympic themes, and so many more. But he's also composed some quieter, reflective pieces. This is absolutely one of my favorites of those.

I love WWF and Hangin WF and the new one, Scramble. I'm playing with my daughters who live away from home, my niece who has been in the hospital since August and my daughter's boyfriend who I don't know but who apparently is super smart : )

I love the musical piece too...so haunting. Enjoy your day!

When my daughter graduated...we did a week in NYC...visited Macy's, FAO Schwartz, did two Broadway shows, at at Carnigie Deli, were seen on the Today show outside, took a Big Red Bus tour, saw everything you can see.... it was magical. You should do it and soon. You will love it.

Beautiful music.

Yep, your love quote is love in a nutshell!
My daughter loves Sound of Music and would watch it over and over if I let her! It is a great movie.
