Wednesday Hodgepodge

1.  Speaking of 180...when was the last time you 'did a 180' on something?

Last night in Zumba class! I liked to have never gotten this move down!

2. It's Independence Week in the US of A! What's your favorite thing about America right this very minute? Favorites only! Let's hear what you love about America.

If you're playing along today, and you're not an American but have been to America, what do/did you like best about this country? If you've never been to America, do you have any desire to visit? What's the number one thing you'd like to see?

Freedom of speech-even though I dislike (that is a nice word) what is going on in Washington, I am still able to voice my opinion without being killed.

3. Stars or stripes? Red, white, or blue? Watermelon, homemade vanilla ice cream, or blueberry pie?

I must chose two--stars/stipes and watermelon.

4. When did you last see stars, figuratively speaking?

Sunday evening after returning home, I ran into my armoire.  A huge bruise appeared and scratch appeared shorty afterwards.

5.  'Clear as a bell', 'with bells on',  'lots of bells and whistles', 'saved by the bell'...which phrase 'rings' truest for you lately?  Have you ever seen The Liberty Bell?

'Clear as a bell' finally happened.
I have never seen The Liberty Bell.

6. Are you caught up in World Cup fever? Have you watched a lot or a little or none at all?

Not really but I have been keeping up with the USA.

7. Bid farewell to June in 10 words or less.

Schools out, fun-filled week of Bible School, happy 33rd anniversary!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Had a doctor's appointment yesterday, and found out my blood pressure was high.  Couldn't be?  I have never had high blood pressure (even though my mom does) before.  As I was driving home (took the country roads not interstate), I began talking to myself.  I have got to learn to let things go and let God take control.
"I will behave wisely in a perfect way.  Oh, when will You come to me?  I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.  I will set nothing wicked before my eyes; I hate the work of those who fall away; It shall not cling to me."  Psalm: 101 2-3


  1. I think I'm going to skip over everyone's #4. Your's is the second one that's made me cringe. OUCH! I haven't had the nerve to venture into a Zumba class BUT I saw an instructor on a local news show this week who is older than I and so were most of her students! I'm thinking I might try that one out. I'm way more comfortable in classes like that with 'my people.' LOL

  2. I think it could be stress, but it could also be age and genetics too. Whatever the reason, keep an eye on it! Hope you enjoy your July 4th weekend!

  3. My doctor says having your blood pressure taken in their office can lead to high blood pressure. My husband has been told to keep an eye on his.

  4. Even taking country roads rather than the interstate might help your blood pressure IMHO. :-)


Playing Catch-up...Round Two

  I just returned from a glorious Women's Retreat in Tennessee. Last year, I was invited to attend this retreat.  I had no idea what to ...
