Fall for the Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. It is officially fall here in North America...I realize not everyone who participates in the Hodgepodge lives in North America but if you do, what's your favorite memory of Summer 2011? If you're not in North America, what's your favorite memory of the season just ending on your side of the world?

The record-setting, 87 days of 100-plus degree temperatures! (Besides, two of those have happened since fall started!)

Without question, it was my trip to Atlanta when I got to hang out with my friend Kim from Window to my World, attend the Christy Awards, and talk to so many incredible authors!

2. Your favorite nut? You know I mean the edible kind, right?

Pecan. And it's pronounced puh-KAHN here in Texas, thankyouverymuch!

3. What activity puts your sense of balance to the test?

Stepping on an escalator when my hands are full and I can't grab the rail or see my feet.

4. How would you describe your sense of humor?

A bit dry, heavy on word play, sometimes self-deprecating and a bit sarcastic.

5. September 28th is National Ask a Stupid Question Day...what's your stupid question?

Who comes up with these "National. . . .Days"?

6. Roller skates~hula hoop~jump rope...which activity would you most enjoy? Yes, you have to choose.

Jump rope. Especially if I got to hold one end of a long one for other people! Jump rope was always one of my favorite things to do as a child.

7. What's your most sentimental possession?

Ooh, that's tough. I guess it would probably be my engagement/wedding rings, our wedding pictures, and pictures of the kids when they were little.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I'm looking forward to my MIL coming to help us celebrate my man's birthday tomorrow. It will be strange, though, for my boy not to be here. College is an adjustment for all of us!

Happy Birthday to your hubby Linda!

Oh and I forgot to let you know I received the book. Thank you. I can't wait to read it.

I answered escalator to #3 as well.
However, I don't have to have my hands full to be off balance.
Although, hands full sure doesn't help.

Happy Birthday to your man!
Enjoy the day!

Pecans are my favorite. Happy Birthday to your husband.

Happy Birthday to your hubby!

I am not a fan of escalators, but I ride them anyway. I am always afraid that I will somehow not get on or off the "right" way, and get injured :/
