Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Are you comfortable with silence? If you're home alone, do you like silence or do you need regular background noise? Do you seek out times and places to be silent? What's your favorite place to find silence/be silent?

I am comfortable with silence.  At times, I need silence just to collect my wits end.  Usually when I am home alone, there is some music playing in the background-usually Contemporary Christian music or the 70's or 80's blaring.  
I do seek out times to be silent.  In the morning before the day begins, I say a prayer and read my devotions. I am not a morning person but if I wait  until later that evening, I find myself not having any time to read my devotions.  My morning routines help me get in a good frame of mind for the day.

My favorite place to find silence--Bathroom! 

2. October 28th is National Chocolate Day. Can't let that go by without a mention now, can we? Will you celebrate? How? Let's say you can have one of the following right this ve…

1. October 21, 2015 is Back to the Future Day. Did you see the movie? The sequels? In the second film, Doc takes Marty into the future to prevent Marty's future son from making a mistake. They leave 1985 and land on a 'skyway' on October 21st, 2015. So tell us, what were you doing in the fall of 1985?

I was teaching 4th and 6th grade in 1985.  Hub and I were renting an apartment and not a care in the world!

2.  If time travel were possible, would you want to go to the future? The past?

May I go to both, please?
I would like to go to the future to see how my children are doing-if they are succeeding in all they set out to do.  I would like to see if grandchildren have accomplished their goals/dreams.  I wonder if heaven will allow me to see this....
I would like to go to the past--just a little bit of the simplified life style-but then again, I need my microwave, cell phone, and computer.  Going back to the past would allow me to talk to my ancestors which would be great.

Weekend Rewind...

Weekend Rewind...

The weekend started off dreary and rainy but ended on a high note-bright sunshine.

 The school I currently teach at was celebrating homecoming activities.  I kinda like some of the dress-up days we had--Squad Day, Character/Super Hero, Jock/Nerd/ Throwback Thursday-it was neat seeing the kiddos dress and of course the faculty dressed up as well.  It was a beautiful week-sunshine and warm temps one would have thought we were in the month of May, not October.  Friday, the rain/storms blew in--ugh!  Our football game was cancelled and will be played tomorrow night-Yep on a school night-need I say more.

Before the storms came, the sun was shining.  It had been raining so the football field was muddy and since it was Homecoming I am glad no one (especially the girls) had to trudge across that muddy field.  I had grandson (he wanted to spend the night even though the football was cancelled and his dad would be home) and we headed out to a nearby town to pick up a few item…

Weekend Rewind....

Weekend Rewind...

It was a rainy, windy weekend.  So thankful we did not get all the rain that was earlier predicted.  Prayers for safety for all caught up in the rain.

Finally, got around to putting my spring and summer pictures on a DVD.  I have not been too lucky with photo albums.  Either my pictures fall out or I forget to put them in an album so a few years ago I began putting all my pictures on a DVD and labeling them season/year.   For some reason, I was a little behind ( I blamed it on the wedding planning) but got all pictures finished this week. Instead of going to the football game Friday evening, Grandson and I watched DVD's and sat and watched/ reminiscing about all the fun adventures we had earlier in the year.

I woke up early Saturday morning and cleaned the house.  Shew! it about took me all day.  The wind was howling outside and Grandson was telling me to stop cleaning and watch the trees.  The trees were really bending to the ground.  Our lights did flicker a f…
