Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. What does retirement mean to you? Are you planning for it, not thinking about it, looking forward to it, or dreading it?

I retired last year from 33 years of teaching.  At first when seeing the school buses, I cried...yep a little tear.  I have been subbing a few times.  I don't mind; I get to teach (which I love doing), but I don't have to worry about all the 'extra stuff' that is required of teachers.

2. It's International Guitar you play? Does anyone in your family play? What's a song you especially like to hear played on the guitar or a favorite song featuring the guitar?

I do not play the guitar.
"Tears in Heaven"

3. What's your comfort food?

4. What's one activity or area of your life where you absolutely never procrastinate?

Going to Zumba class!

5. Who does the grocery shopping in your house? Does your local store bag the groceries for you or is it a do-it-yourself kind of place? Do you like someone packing your groceries?

I usually do the grocery shopping.  Sometimes hub does tag along, and I end up with more than I need.  Our local grocery store bags the groceries.  Since I live in a small town, I don't mind someone bagging.  I usually carry on a conversation with one of the baggers because I have taught him/her.

6. What's the coolest thing you've seen in nature?

When hub and I traveled to watch daughter play basketball, we traveled to some places the GPS had taken us the fastest time.  I remember one place over the scariest mountain I had ever traveled.  It was like a place back in time....the small waterfalls coming out of the mountain were beautiful.  I wanted to stop and take a picture, but hub doesn't stop when traveling.  

7. Share a favorite quote about home.

Mother all confused!  We are expecting some snow this weekend!  I am ready for warmer weather.


  1. Oooh!! A melt-y grilled cheese sandwich is one of my favorite things too! Yum!

  2. A grilled cheese sandwich is a great answer. Definitely a comfort food for me too. Hoping spring returns in your area. It's cool here, but warms up into the 60's by mid day. No snow though! I hope it gives you a miss.

  3. Expecting snow? Bless your heart...hoping warmer weather heads your way soon!

  4. I love the "Tears In Heaven' song! Awww...grilled cheese sandwiches! I'm surprised I didn't think of that for my answer. It's great along with a hot, steamy bowl of tomato soup! I hope your Spring comes back soon. It's a beautiful 70ish day here in SE Oklahoma today!

  5. Tears from Heaven is an amazing song. Grilled cheese is a great comfort food. Way to go on the Zumba! That is a sweet saying. Sorry about your weather......

  6. Great song choice and I could go for a grilled cheese sandwich if there was no chocolate in the house. Hope you don't get too much snow! I think Spring has finally got here.


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 ...
