A Tropical Wednesday Hodgepodge

The Wednesday Hodgepodge has a punch to it this week. . . Hawaiian, that is! (Sorry, couldn't resist!) Read my answers to Joyce's questions and then head over her blog and join the fun!

1. Aloha! On August 21, 1959 Hawaii officially became a US state. Have you ever been? Upon arrival would you prefer an orchid or a hibiscus to tuck behind your ear?

I've never been to Hawaii. It would be fun to go, but it's actually not at the top of my list. As for the preferred flower, it's a toss-up. Probably a hibiscus. I like the fuschia/purplish colors.

2. Since we're talking tropical...what's your favorite food or beverage made with pineapple?

I love fresh pineapple just by itself and on pizza!

3. Do you believe in soul mates? Explain.

Well, with regards to shoes, yes, but I guess that would be sole mates! :-)

That's such a New Age-y term, but I do think that we do connect on a deeper level with some people more than others. And the Holy Spirit in us recognizes and responds to the Holy Spirit in others and that forges a bond that is absent in relationships with non-believers.

4. Share a memory about the house you grew up in.

It was tiny, but I never realized how tiny until I was an adult. My parents raised four kids in a house that was about 1100 s.f. It was our normal, so we didn't think anything about it. And back in the 60's people didn't have all the "stuff" we have today.

5. Are you comfortable with silence?

I was tempted just to leave a blank space for this one! Yes, silence is perfectly fine me. Sometimes I prefer it!

6. You spot a giant spider on your bedroom wall...what's your next move? (all spiders are giant, right?)

Grab a shoe or yell for my man!

7. My idea of fun does NOT include ______________.

. . .anything requiring athletic ability.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Today is my girl's 17th birthday! She starts her senior year in high school on Monday. I miss my precious baby, but a sweet young lady with a heart for God and others has taken her place!

I kind of wish I'd used 'How about a nice Hawaiian HP' for my title : ) I bet some people wouldn't get it. Do they still make Hawaiian Punch?

Happy Birthday to your daughter!

PIZZA!!I forgot about pineapple on pizza, now I'm hungry - thanks! Your baby is growing up. Good job!

1100 sq foot sound about right to me too. And we didn't have all the gadgets, computers, big screen TVs and other nonsense that fills our huge homes now.
Happy Bday to your baby girl!

I almost just left my answer about silence as a blank space too :) But then I didnt know if people would just think I accidently forgot to answer :) Happy Wednesday!
