Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. It's National Waffle Day (August 24th)...what decision are you currently 'waffling over'? (or share one you've recently 'waffled over')

We moved last week!!!  So I am still in the process of 'waffling over' where to put all my furniture....when down sizing one must get rid of furniture, right?  Not happened here....

2. It's the middle of August, but I'm already seeing lots of autumn-related posts. Do you think we rush the seasons? If so, does that bother you? I saw (here) an end of summer bucket list that included-

make s'mores, read a new (or favorite) book in the park, eat something delicious and bad for you at a state fair, be a tourist for the day, have a pot luck picnic, book a last minute summer getaway, relax by or in the pool, take a hike to watch the sunset, have a day on the lake, try a new summer recipe

I think we rush the season.  I am ready for cooler temps and by cooler I mean 70's, but I am not ready for fall.  I still want to enjoy sitting outside to the wee hours of the morning and grilling out.  Heck the other day I saw halloween 'stuff' out in the department stores!!

Which activities on the list might you squeeze in before summer officially comes to a close?
Will try to squeeze in a last minute summer getaway is on my list.

3. Your favorite summertime 'art' found in nature?

Beautiful sunsets.

4. Stephen R. Covey is quoted as saying 'We judge ourselves by our intentions, and others by their actions.' Agree or no? Do you define yourself based on your intentions, your actions, or something else?

I guess I sometimes define myself on my intentions but then it I evaluate myself (critically) by not getting doing what I intended to do.
I judge others by their actions and I am working hard to try to not do this so harshly anymore.  All of us have a story and not one of us really knows the other person's story entirely.

5. Are you useful in a crisis? Elaborate.

Nope....I panic.

6. What's been your go-to dish this summer? Is it something you'll continue making as the seasons change?

I haven't really had a go-t0-dish-mainly just fruit and junk food.

7. Adult coloring books are a thing now. Have you jumped on the bandwagon? If not is this something you think you might enjoy?

I attended a coloring book party a few months ago.  Did I find this relaxing????  I kept thinking about all the other 'stuff' I needed to get done and here I sat coloring!
The big thing going on now is having a Pearl Party and opening up oysters and seeing the pearl you have gotten.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Like I mentioned earlier, finally moved.  However, still have a lot of the little things to move and unpack.  Shew!  It is the little things that take sooo much time.


  1. Wow I'm impressed you're blogging with a move. I'm gearing up for mine in another month or so. Wishing you much happiness in the new home! Also, your link wasn't working but I was able to correct it. Happy unpacking!

  2. Sunsets are a lovely example of nature's art!

  3. Great choice with the sunsets....I love the sky! I don't think I find coloring relaxing but it is fun for a short period of time. Best of luck with getting unpacked and all settled in.
