Wednesday Hodgepodge

 From this Side of the Pond

1. Four words that tell us something about your July?

I made the trip!!!

2. Four of your favorite summer foods?

Fresh vegetables, home-grown tomatoes, watermelon, and shrimp boil. I could live off of fresh vegetables -skip the meat- in the summer.

3. What were you doing at a quarter past four yesterday? 

Yesterday, was hot and humid.  After I completed some work around the house, I sat on my porch and read.

4. fore!, four letter word, four sheets to the wind, ten-four, 24/7, four eyes, these four walls....pick a 'four' phrase and tell us how you relate currently

Four letter word.  Today so many people are very laxed with their language.  Almost everywhere I go, I hear way too many four letter words and I cringe.  But what really upsets me is when a young child says these words and the parent's reaction/response is, "I have no idea where he/she picked that word up."  Yeah, right??? my thoughts exactly!

5. Something you own that is four years old? 

Luggage.   In 2019, I purchased a new set of luggage for my upcoming trip to Hawaii.  Everything else is way over four years old!

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

I am so glad I went and made the trip.  My late hub always drove on long trips and I just wasn't sure I could drive 8 hrs by myself.  Even though there were some hiccups (rainy days, a friend hit a concrete barrier in a parking garage, a friend hit the heat button instead of the AC button in the room, a friend got the scare of her life when a neighbor called saying her smoke alarm was going off at home (thankfully the breaker just needed adjusting) it was so good seeing/talking with friends.

Have a great rest of the week!


  1. We both agree that four letter words make us uncomfortable and prefer to not be exposed. I'm so glad you took the trip and now you know you can do it and hopefully will do that sort thing more often.

  2. I enjoy all those foods too. Glad you made the trip. Have a great day!

  3. Love how you illustrated your answers. Yippee for you in taking that trip. There are ups and downs an glitches no matter where we are, home or on a roadtrip! Happy last week of July!

  4. I'm so happy you made the trip! It looked like a wonderful time with sweet friends and I'm sure it was a great time of relaxing and refreshing.

  5. I agree...I do not like the four letter word. I feel like it is used to just fill space and that people couldn't think of a better word to use.
