Rollin' with the Hodgepodge

1. Thursday is National Pi Day...are you good at math? What was the last thing you had to calculate? Did you use your head or technology? Last slice of pie you ate? 

I am horrible at math. Numbers don't mean a thing to me, but I jokingly say that I can conjugate the heck out of some verbs in a couple of different languages! (I used to be able to, anyway!) I have to use technology...rarely can I use my head. The last slice of pie I ate had to have been pie from Buttermilk Sky Pie. It was probably the buttermilk pie, which sounds kind of gross but is actually quite good.

2. What makes a house a home? 

Laughter. And being comfortable. One of the boys' ex-girlfriends mentioned that our house was comfortable. That's exactly what I go for. My house is lived in!

3. Your current favorite green thing? 


4. How do you define achievement? How does your personal definition look similar to, or different than, society's definition? What's something you think is worth achieving in life? 

Being happy. Society says achievement is having that big house with the manicured lawn and having "things". That is definitely not my definition. If you can be happy and have joy, you have achieved great things.

5. What song is a good soundtrack for your life right now? 

I had to look through some playlists on Spotify to pick just there right one. Here is it:

6. Insert your own random thought here.

An old friend of mine from back in the colorguard instructing days and his wife bought a flat in Scotland that they will live in part-time. The wife has started a blog describing what that new life is like. She's an excellent writer and makes you feel like you are right there with them. Check it out here.  


  1. I almost picked that Steve Winwood song! I love his music. I'm pretty sure his wife is from Knoxville and he lived there at one time. I think he's in Nashville now. We were in town very briefly, long enough to take Sally to dinner, then went to Chattagnooga Sunday for the day so she could meet the baby, then home Monday morning. Next time though, I meet you for buttermilk pie! I love it and have made it but not in a long long time. Enjoy your day!

  2. I enjoyed the video, thanks for sharing!

  3. I enjoyed reading your answers and I agree with your answer for #4. Hope your week is going well.

  4. I'm going to check out that blog since we are planning a trip to Scotland, Lord willing. That is a nice compliment from your son's ex-girlfriend that you have a comfortable home. Happy day to you!

  5. I enjoyed your answers. I agree with comfortable!!!
