Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Have you ever been to and/or lived near the desert? What did you think? Travel and Leisure lists the 'coolest' American desert towns as-

Palm Springs CA, Virgina City NE, Bend OR, Winslow AZ, Marfa TX, Grand Junction CO, Silver City NM, Moab UT, Taos NM, Yakima WA, Borrego Springs CA, Terlingua TX, and St. George UT, and Tubac AZ

Have you been to any of these? Would you like to visit a desert town? Which on the list would you most like to see?

No, I have never been to any of these.  I wouldn't mind visiting a desert town....Grand Junction, CO. 

2. What's a plan or project you've deserted in the past year?

Deep, thorough cleaning the house.  In August (my plan to begin with), I was going to give my house a thorough cleaning.  I did not do the usual cleaning (blinds, windows, etc) last year (2015) because I was in a wedding mode with daughter. I told myself I would do all of this cleaning this year in August-school would be in session and I would have not interruptions.  As most of you know, #1 daughter and hub and I changed houses...moving in August...We are officially in our new home, but there are still boxes to be unpacked and little things to be done.  The deep, spring cleaning will be put off till next year.  I am in the mood for decorating for fall...spring cleaning just doesn't happen in the fall.

3. Desert-dessert? Share two or three words you find yourself having to think twice about when it comes to spelling.

Dessert---Something sweet---with two S

4. High and dry, like watching paint dry, dry run, dry as dust, not a dry eye in the house...which phrase can you relate to currently? Explain.

Dry as Dust until Monday.  We have been really dry for the past couple of one walked you could literally hear the grass crunch beneath your feet. The rain .  Monday!

Most of the time.....not a dry eye in the house.  Just thinking about #1 daughter's health situation moves me to tears everyday

5. How often do you frequent the dry cleaners? Starch or no starch?

Actually told hub on Monday that I needed to go to the dry cleaners.  Honestly can't remember the last time I have been to the dry cleaners.  Hold the starch

6. What's a food or beverage you enjoy that's named for a place?

Coffee or Java....named after the island Java in Indonesia

7. Do you need solitude?

Yes....just to collect my thoughts.   With the day to day list of do's, I need to just be by myself.  When I take the time to recharge, I am a much better person mentally.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

This past weekend was my community's celebration....Apple Festival.  It was HOT!  Someone said it was the hottest Apple Festival weekends in 60 years.  The vendors and crafters were thrilled with the weather...A great crowd.

September is going by way too fast for me.


  1. I have been in deserts but not in the States;
    I think most of us women need some solitude from time to time ! I enjoy company very much, but also my own one !

  2. I agree that time to recharge is needed and if I don't I get very grumpy. This weekend I will be a vendor (jewelry) at our local fall festival, I hope the weather is good and we have a great crowd too.

  3. I sometimes get into a cleaning mode in the fall when the weather cools down, and I see the dust on the furniture I want to put Christmas decorations on : ) I am praying for your girl and hope she is well. Take care.
