Summer Hodgepodge

Every Tuesday, Joyce comes up with 7 questions to answer, then link up and see how everyone else answered.  Here are this week's questions:

1. Summer's here-whoohoo! What's your favorite sight, sound, AND smell associated with summer?
Favorite sight:  lightening bugs.  Sound:  Cicadas.  (I know they can be annoying, but you've gotta admit, it does say "SUMMER"!)  Smell:  coppertone suntan lotion.

2. Fireflies or lightning bugs...what are they called in your neck of the woods?
Lightening bugs.  (See #1)
3. What is something from the past week that reminded you of your childhood?
Walking by the "King & Queen's chair" in the park.  There is a cluster of rocks tucked on a hill; there are a couple of rocks that appear to be a couple of chairs, plus a smaller chair.  We would pretend that the rocks were the castle and the chairs belonged to the king, queen, and princess.  The castle was complete with a dungeon, but I was never brave enough to go down there; the thought of snakes being in there was enough for me to stay away!
4. Define 'the good life'.
Being able to spend time with family and friends, not having to work, having someone to cook for me, sitting on the beach and having someone bring me drinks, etc...
5. Tell us what we'd see if you took a snapshot of your desk/work space?
I don't have a "work space" this summer.  I have my laptop while I'm sitting on the couch.  I have done some online Professional Development the comfort of my couch!
6. Peaches or watermelon...yes, you have to choose.
That's soooo easy:  watermelon.  I don't like peaches.

7. Ever been skinny dippin'? Is that too much for the Wednesday Hodgepodge? Rest assured we won't need details...unless of course you feel you must but remember, this is a family friendly blog so keep it G rated.
Uh.  No.  Never.  I have no desire to go, either.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I saw this clip on youtube, and it had me laughing so hard I was crying!


  1. Nothing brings a smile to my face like a baby's giggles.

    And I forgot the smell of Coppertone suntan lotion (back before we knew the dangers of overexposure to the sun, nothing smelled more like summer than Coppertone).

  2. I almost said cicadas too-in small numbers. They definitely signal summer to me!

    I'll show hubs that video link you sent me...he was at a dinner last night so haven't had a chance yet : )

  3. I love the sound of cicadas too. They are like a summer symphony! Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

  4. That video is too funny. Don't like peaches? I don't know what to say--peaches are so yummy! We didn't get too many cicadas around here this year, thank goodness! They were bad enough in Nashville.

  5. Cute clip. I picked watermelon too...although peaches are good in a cobbler. Lol

  6. I love your #4...especially the not working part!!!

  7. Too, too precious!!!! It's funny how you can watch a baby laugh forever and never get tired of it!!

    I love the smell of Noxema. My mom would put it on my shoulders whenever I got sunburned.

  8. That baby's laughter is just too sweet.

    Your description of the good life, sounds pretty good to me too.

    Have a great day.

  9. Loved your answers! That clip is too funny. Thanks for the heads up on the donut place we will check that out!
    until next time... nel

  10. You don't like PEACHES??!!
    "That's WRONG, GF! LOL
    Actually my Dad was not a fan of peaches either. But me, I love them, especially if someone else will peel them for me!

    BTW, I think you'll want to jump over to my Blog and take part in the Slacker Cook give-away; perfect for Summer cooking!!

  11. Like your idea of the good life. Others cooking...bringing me a drink, yup good stuff. Laughing baby is so cute.

  12. Oh, no, not cicadas. They do say SUMMER.

    The baby video was cute!
