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 very minute... a cup of hot chocolate, a strawberry dipped in chocolate, a bowl of plain chocolate ice cream, or a slice of chocolate pie...what's your pleasure?

A strawberry dipped in chocolate.  I am not a huge fan of plain chocolate.

3. How do you feel about blue jeans? Favorite thing in the world to wear or nope, don't own a single pair? How often do you wear blue jeans in a typical week? Do you own a blue jean jacket?

Jeans aren't necessarily my favorite but I do enjoy wearing jeans.  I am able to wear jeans every Friday to school. I have found that you can really dress up a pair of jeans to look so neat/tidy  -pairing jeans with accessories (jewelry/scarfs) can make a pair of jeans come to life!  In a typical week, I wear jeans probably 2-3 times.  I do own a blue jean jacket donated to me by daughter.

4. Are you superstitious? If so, in what way?

Yes and I shouldn't be.  I know that going in one door and out another door does not cause me any harm, but I won't do it.  

5. If you had to come up with a costume using only things you have on hand right now, what could you come up with? 

A tacky tourist--straw hat, big wide sunglasses, an outfit that is completely outdated and lots of fake jewelry!

6. What scares you a little? What do you do when you feel scared?

I do not like to be caught in the middle of a dispute.  I do not like confrontations at all.  Usually walk/run from the situation.

7. Perhaps today will be the day I ______________________________. am able to cook and eat with hub!  For the past few days, I have had something going on and hub has had the same schedule.  So we both have just grabbed something to eat later that evening-unhealthy of course-chips, cookies, crackers-too tired and too late to fix dinner.  Today may be the day---I shall see!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Rainy here for the past couple of days.  I  am in the mood for fall and some cooler temps.  Have a safe Halloween and enjoy all the Trick or Treaters!

  1. Never heard of that door superstition, but I think you just explained the whole people using the wrong doors at Wal-Mart for me.

  2. I've never heard of that door superstition either. Hope your schedules slow down a bit and that you have a wonderful Wednesday.

  3. I haven't heard of the door superstition before. You learn something new with every Hodgepodge. Hope your schedule slows down, but retirement is right around the corner so there is that : )

  4. The tacky tourist is a cute idea! I've seen it on Pinterest a lot. I've not heard of the door superstition. I'm interested to know more about it now! haha

  5. Oh, I'm definitely a morning routine person! I get up at 5am. I make my husband's lunch and coffee, take care of the dogs (and sometimes chickens), get laundry going. I see my husband off to work at 5:30, do devotionals until 6:20, and then get my son off to school. Such an early start! LOL

  6. That's a great costume idea! Hope you got to have dinner with your husband. I love having Trick or Treaters, I can't wait! Happy Halloween......


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 ...
