Reminiscing Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Describe love using all five senses.
Looks: happy
Smells: divine
Sounds like: music
Feels: magical
Tastes: sweet

2. February is Canned Food Month. What's your favorite food that comes straight from a can?

3. A principal in a UK school recently sent home a letter to parents requesting they(the parents!) dress appropriately when escorting their children to/from school (basically saying please don't wear your pajamas) You can read the letter here. It's gotten a lot of publicity, both positive and negative. Your thoughts? And do/did you ever make the school run (or hit Starbucks, Walmart, etc) in your pjs?

NEVER. I figured it would be just my luck to have an accident on the way to or from. How embarrassing would that be to be on the side of the road, in your pj's, talking to a policeman?
Working at a school; however, I see parents come in all.the.time in their pjs. 

4. Crew neck, V-neck, turtleneck, scoop neck...which is most prevalent in your wardrobe?

Crew neck. I don't think I look good in scoop necks, so I have zero.

5. I read here recently a list of four things to avoid so you wake up happier. They were late night snacks, hitting the snooze button, social media just before bed/upon waking, checking emails. 

Are you guilty of any of these behaviors? Which on that list do you need to work harder at avoiding?

I don't do late night snacks or hit the snooze button. I'm guilty of the others, although I'm trying not to do the social media thing. Guess I need to add check emails!

6. Share something you remember about a house you lived in as a child? Of all the homes you lived in as a child, which did you love best? 

I have so many memories of the house I grew up in. We moved in the house where my daddy still lives when I was 9 months old. The screen door slamming in the summer (no air conditioning), being cold in the winter (because daddy set the thermostat on slightly above freezing to save money), being scared of going to the basement at night...I could go on & on.

7.Your favorite movie based on a true story? 

Brian's Song. Hands down. I didn't even have to think about it!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Can you believe Ash Wednesday is next Wednesday? Since I'm a bit Mardi Gras obsessed right now, I have to wonder if it's a bummer for the La. tourism for the short season between Epiphany & Ash Wednesday. 
On one side, the Iowa Caucus restored my hope in the American people...for now. For the other side, I'm not so sure "flipping a coin" is the best way to choose a candidate. How humiliating...that should tell both candidates something.


  1. I enjoyed your answers. Funny--we were just discussing the flipping the coin--and how uncivilized it was. It was like, reallyyyyyyyyyy people. ANYWAYS---keep the election process in prayer---too many people---especially young folks love "The Bern".

    Have a beautiful Wednesday-pouring rain here in upstate NY.

  2. Personally, I'm more than ready for the election to be over. It already seems as though it's been dragging on forever. Unfortunately, I see things getting pretty nasty before all is said and done. Brian's Song..loved that movie and talk about a tear-jerker!

  3. So many great movies! I didn't think of Brian's Song, but definitely one of my faves too. I'm praying for America. Our problems run so deep and are so numerous.

  4. I really love the original "Brian's Song" and sob my way through to the end, but we didn't enjoy the remake AT ALL!! Ditto to your thoughts on the Iowa Caucus. NH will be interesting. Another fun Hodgepodge!!

  5. I didn't think about "Brian's Song", but that's a good one! I loved your childhood house memories, too.
    Have a great day!

  6. I have to agree with you about flipping a coin; all that work both candidates did and then a coin toss?

    I do agree about Brian's Song; I remember crying copiously after watching it years ago :)


  7. Flipping a coin...yes very sad indeed!!
    I love your number #6 - I have many of the same memories in our old farm house.

  8. Never thought of pineapple, great answer!

  9. Sorry I hit publish when I had more to say......
    I enjoyed our basement but I do remember times when I would have to get something alone and I would be so scared. Brian's Song was a great movie. The year is already going by too quickly.

  10. Mmm, pineapples! I put that down as my answer too!! There is just something about pineapples in a can, I am convinced it's because they are kept in their juice.
    Hope you have a blessed day!

  11. Love Pineapples! Thinking Rock/Paper/Scissors is better than flipping a coin: I will be glad when election season is over. Forgot all about "Brian's Song"- such a huge movie back when I was a teen/young adult. Have a frog-tastic week!

  12. I always forget that Mardi Gras coincides with Ash Wednesday. My parents live in Pensacola where they have what they claim to be the oldest Mardi Gras celebration and one day, I'll go to it.
