A Peachy Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. The first week of August is National Simplify Your Life Week...what's one thing you could do this week to qualify as a participant?

Ha! I'm getting my daughter ready to go to college! Ain't nothing simplifying about that! But food is pretty streamlined at my house this week.

2. It's also National Peach Month...peach pie, peach cobbler, or please pour me a Bellini? What's your peach pleasure?

It's funny to me that August has this designation because the peaches are essentially gone by the end of July around here. My favorite way to eat them is just to cut them up on my cereal, although I do like the Southern Living peach cobbler that I make.

3. Eleanor Roosevelt once wrote, "Do one thing every day that scares you." Agree or disagree...explain.

I think that's actually a stupid mantra, but anyone who is a parent (especially of teens!) knows that sending your child out the door every day is pretty scary! It's a happy sound when that garage door goes up!

4. What's your favorite household chore? Yes-you have to name one.


5. Fodors recently listed (what they've dubbed) the ten most beautiful sunset spots in America. Click here to read more and see the pretty pictures, but this is their list:

Butterfly Beach in Santa Monica CA, Mount Haleakala in Maui HI, Old Fort Marcy Park in Santa Fe NM, Laguna Beach CA, Hopi Point in Grand Canyon AZ, Four Seasons in Miami FL, Santa Monica Pier in Santa Monica CA, Gay Head in Martha's Vineyard MA, Ensign Peak in Salt Lake City UT, and Mallory Square in Key West Florida.

Have you seen the sun set from any of these spots? If you could choose to watch the sun set this weekend from one spot on the Fodors List, which would you choose? Where was the prettiest sunset you've ever seen?

I've been to the Grand Canyon and seen the sunset there, although I don't know if it was specifically at Hopi Point. Of those pictures, Laguna Beach looks the prettiest.

But it's awfully hard to beat the sunsets here in Texas!

6. What's your favorite or most used app? If you don't use apps how about your favorite or most visited website?

That would be a game app! Although I use our church app a good bit, too, to look up emails and phone numbers.

7. We've recently passed the halfway mark for 2013...write a seven word sentence that sums up your year thus far.

Full of emotion; glad God is steady!

8. Insert your own random thought here.

It's a lot easier to get a boy ready for college than a girl! And my girl isn't even a high-maintenance, foo-foo girl!

I agree: cooking is a chore! (It's one I rarely do anymore... guess it's part of simplifying my life! ha) And, getting a daughter ready for college is fun, but expensive! Hello Target!!! Where is she going to school?

I agree, it is a lot easier to get a boy ready for college. Or anything else for that matter! : )
