Wednesday Hodgepodge






1. Have you ever been fishing? Did you catch a fish? If so did you keep it or throw it back? If you haven't been fishing is that something you'd like to try?

Yes, when I was in my early years, I went fishing with my cousins.  I think I caught a fish, but honestly can't remember.  I do remember being on a boat and thinking how awful the stuff fish ate smelled.
I did take my daughters fishing when they were younger.  They both caught fish and I do remember the squeal in their voices as they were reeling the fish in.

Fish out of water, big fish in a small pond, living in a fishbowl, packed in like sardines, this is a fine kettle of fish, plenty of fish in the sea, fish or cut bait...which fishy phrase most recently applies to some area of your life?

None of the above.....I even asked hub and he had the same answer.

2. What's something you're always fishing for in your purse, wallet, desk, or kitchen junk drawer?

In my purse, it is always my reading glasses and hand sanitizer.  

3. Your favorite fish tale or movie?

A Fish Tale

4. Are you sunrise, daylight, twilight or night? Explain why you chose your answer.

Sunrise.....I am awake and ready to begin my day.  I enjoy the day before the day begins.

5. What's the oldest piece of clothing you own and still wear?

A shirt and skirt set that is at least 10 yrs. old....It is stretchy and that is why it still fits.  


6. We've got one more month of (officially) winter here in the Northern hemisphere. Are you feeling the need for a getaway? What's been the best and worst part of your winter so far?

Winter has stayed at bay.  I think we have  only had a couple of days that the temps were cold maybe in the 30s and only one snow.  Most days our temps have been in the 50s -70s  a very unusual winter.  Best part is I have not had to do any shoveling....

Worst part is I have missed the snow and the cooler temps...it just hasn't felt like winter when wearing flip flops outside in February. 

7.  The Wednesday Hodgepodge lands on National Margarita Day...will you be celebrating? Frozen or on the rocks? Are you a Jimmy Buffet fan? If so, what's your favorite JB tune?

No, not celebrating.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Hub ...has been experiencing some pain in his lower abdomen.  He is having a scan tomorrow...Prayers for nothing serious...but once diagnosed with cancer any pain is a concern.
Also hub has his three year colonoscopy on Monday...prayers for a good report.
Have a Blessed Week.

Wednesday Hodgepodge





1. What do/did you call your grandparents? If it's something unusual tell us the story behind the name. If you're a grandparent what do your grands call you? Who chose your moniker?

I called them Mamaw and Papaw.  I have two  step-grandsons and they call me Mamaw.  No one really chose these...just started using.

2. Ever taken a road trip along the California Coast? If so what was the highlight of your trek? If not, any desire to do so? If you were to take a trip along the California Coast what's one attraction you'd have on your must-see list?

Never taken a road trip along the California Coast, and I have no desire.  I imagine I would ride with the top down as I drive seeing Santa Barbara down to San Diego.

3. What are three things you don't know how to do?

Use a sewing maching, knit, and swim (swim I will save for another topic), and computers-technology is faster than me!

4. Tom Peters is quoted as saying, 'Celebrate what you want to see more of.' If that's true what will you celebrate and more importantly, how will you celebrate?

Life is hard, and life throws curveballs at us.  But I try to tell myself to think positive and quit looking for something to go wrong.
Like my title....Enjoy Life.....Enjoy each day....heck with my age, each day is a blessing in itself.  Take the time to enjoy the sunset, the sunrise, the laughter of a child, etc.

5. Thursday (February 16) is National Almond Day. Do you like almonds? Which would you prefer-an Almond Joy or a macaron? What's something you make that calls for almonds?

I love almonds......

The last time I used almonds was at Christmas.....I made a Mamaw Pie a co-worker had given me this recipe....Man so delicious and full of calories!

6. What does Saturday morning look like at your house?

That depends.....if I have worked that week, I usually try to do some cleaning and picking up.  If I had not worked then it is just a lazy day till hub gets home.  Hub and I usually try to go out for dinner or take in a movie.


7. Share with us a favorite book you've read this winter.

My college room mate and sorority sister has written....Watching the Water

A great read.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Not much going on in 'my neck of the woods' except for this C-R-A-Z-Y weather.  Snowing some today and weekend temps in the 70s.
Wishing all a Blessed Week!
