Summer's Over Hodgepodge

1.  What's something you wanted to do this summer that you never got around to actually doing?
I can't think of a thing. Everything I wanted to do, I did.

2. Share a favorite memory of your own back -to-school days as a child.
I remember how excited I was to wear a new outfit on the first day of school. I don't have a specific memory of a first day.

3.  What's one chore or daily task you prefer doing 'old-school' ?
Washing the pots & pans.  I don't put those in the dishwashwer.

4.  Share something you've learned in life through the 'school of hard knocks'.
I'm having a hard time thinking of anything on this one. 

5.  As a child, did you mostly bring or buy your lunch for school? What was your favorite thing to find in your lunchbox?
Hmmm...let's see if you can guess from these 2 words:  9 siblings. Yep, I took my lunch almost every single day! I loved the peanut butter & jelly sandwiches Mama used to make! 

6. Football season is upon us which has me wondering... how big of a sports fan are you (not just football) ? On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being 'I scream at the players through my television screen' and 1 being 'is knitting a sport?' where do you fall in fandom? 
Oh, a 10!  Definitely a 10! The dogs run & hide when I start yelling at the tv!

Yep, that would be me!
7. Share a favorite quote you think might inspire students of all ages at the start of a new school year. 
8.  Random thought:
Well, my favorite meteorologist is leaving Knoxville. He's from Denver, and is going home to start a job with Weather Nation.  Here's the clip from his goodbye the other day.  I think you'll see why he's my favorite after looking at this:


  1. Lots of people said they still wash dishes by hand, to answer #3. Interesting. A great Hodgepodge, again!!

  2. I love the sports cartoon! Great Hodgepodge!

  3. Always hard when a favorite newscaster leaves; wishing him luck in his new endeavor! Yep, I'm thinking with 10 kids in the familybuying the school lunch would not be an ooption. I know I was always glad when the kids wanted to buy school lunch, but there were only two of them :)


  4. Will you be yelling at the tv when we beat you next week? Boomer Sooner!

  5. I thought of you when I saw he was leaving : ) I'm picturing a pb & j assembly line at your house on school days!

  6. I wash my pots and pans too! That is awesome that you are a #10 fan, I just can't get into it. Great quote!

  7. Loved your comments this week. Hope your school year is going well.
