Wednesday hodgepodge

1. My daughter earned her Master's Degree this past weekend...what's something you've 'mastered' in recent weeks or months?

Since beginning our 'business adventure,' I have most definitely mastered the skills in building. Truly admire contractors because most do know what they are doing and it is extremely hard work.

2. What song most reminds you of your childhood?

"Twinkle, twinkle little star" the first song that popped into my head.  I remember just gazing at all the stars while walking with my dad down the road to my grandparents' house.  

3. What do you think about single gender groups and/or events? Should everygroup/event be open to both genders?  If not, what sort of exceptions do you think are appropriate? 

It should depend on the event.  Sometimes I think it is great to just have a single gender group/event-I love my hub dearly, but sometimes just want to be with 'the girls'---book club comes to my mind.

4. What's your favorite spice? Your favorite dish containing your favorite spice?

Very seldom use any spice-maybe only pepper.  However, now having a doctor in the family (YEAH) daughter has told me many benefits in using spices. A few examples-oregano kills bacteria, cayenne increases metabolism, bay leaf is a anesthetic and the one for me to begin  using is sage-this one helps with memory.  My questions now-what foods do I use these in! and the foods have to be very simple-my skill is not in cooking.

5.  I saw this question on Marla's facebook page and asked if I could 
steal borrow it for the Hodgepodge...thanks Marla!  

Chevron patterns are everywhere!  Do you like it or think its just a little too much? Do you own anything 'chevron'? 

I like the Chevron but it is a little too much sometimes.  I have a few tops and dresses that are chevron.

6.  What's something you disliked as a child, but can fully appreciate now?


 and having disciplined parents!!

7. What can irritate you very quickly?

Anyone making fun of people with special needs-or hearing someone say "you are retarded"-I will speak up when I hear or see these believe me and what I say isn't always pretty.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
I am glad to be back participating-have missed this.  


  1. Do you make spaghetti sauce? Oregano is good in that, and I throw a bay leaf in mine too. Sage is good with pork, but I only like it in very small amounts-it's strong. We love spice so I throw that on a lot of foods-how about a little hot sauce on your scrambled eggs? Start small : )

    Glad you're back!

  2. oops-left the word cayenne out of that sentence...that's what I use a lot, not the sage!

  3. Great song choice! Also like your answer on spanking. Yes I agree, I can't stand when people make fun of others that way. Glad you back!

  4. I'm happy that you're back also!! Twinkle twinkle, little star...I love it. Always have. I'll be humming it the rest of the day now. #7 our family has faced before with a grandson with Down Syndrome. It's irritating, yes, but I figure if only the world was a loving and understanding to live life to the fullest as those with Down's do, the world would be a better place.

  5. I LOATHE that word when people use it for stupid reasons... i'll say something too... goes right through me...

    Yep - good example... I wouldn't want my husband rolling his eyes next to me in a book club either.... just as I don't want to be part of a Xbox party :)

  6. "Twinkle, twinkle little star" awww, that's a good one!


Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Does anybody really know what day it is? Last week we skipped the Hodgepodge and I just assumed this week would find us in December, but ...
