Wednesday hodgepodge

1. Last thing you did on the spur of the moment?

The only thing I can think of is..grilling out but then I had to run to the store for the food items.  I am not a spur of the moment kind of gal.  I like to know what is going to happen-when it is going to happen-this way I can have a schedule in my mind.  Hub on the other hand is a spur of the moment kind of guy, and yes we definitely clash on this.

2. How well informed do you feel about the current Syrian refugee crisis?

Not very informed at all especially more than half of the refugees are children.  I would like to know more about this situation.

3. What have you changed your mind about? first I was so excited,,,then thinking to myself did I make a mistake because what on earth will I do with my I am thinking I made the right decision to retire.

4. A medium sized non-poisonous snake found it's way into the pool trap this weekend. If you'd been sitting poolside would you have fished it out? Gone running? Called for help? Pretended not to know? Continued swimming?

Gone running!!!

5. September 10th is National TV Dinner Day...what's your idea of a great TV dinner? (Or at least a pretty good one!)

TV dinner?  Order out and watch in front of the television!

6. Samuel Johnson is quoted as saying, "Courage is reckoned the greatest of all virtues; because, unless a man has that virtue, he has no security for preserving any other." Would you agree? Where have you seen that played out recently? What's the second greatest virtue?

I don't totally agree that courage is the greatest virtue.  Courage is a great virtue and not many people today have the courage to stand against what one believes is wrong.  It is easier to just turn the other cheek and not say anything or not 'ruffle anyone's feathers'.  To me being kind and serving others are great virtues.

7. What are three words you have trouble remembering how to spell?

Oh my!!  I don't have a clue.  I guess with having spell check at your fingers spelling mistakes are becoming a thing of the past.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

School was dismissed early yesterday due to the temperature in some classrooms.  I must admit, I am ready for some cooler temps when one can wear a hoodie and sit by a fire outside.


  1. My hubs is also great at spur of the moment, and I think I've become better at it so as not to miss the fun : )

  2. It's been brutally hot here the past few days, but I welcome the onset of cooler weather soon.

  3. I'm glad you are happy with your decision of retirement. I am ready for some cooler temperatures too. California has been unusually hot and humid this summer.

  4. Yes please to cooler weather!!!!
    Sitting by a campfire in a hoodie sounds delicious!

  5. I never thought I would say it but I'm looking forward to cooler temps as well. Enjoy your weekend!

  6. I love your idea of a 'tv dinner' :)
    Cooler temperatures and outside fires does sound good, especially after this summer!
