Wednesday Hodgepodge


. It's National Popcorn Day-my favorite! Are you a fan? Sweet or salty? A good or great movie you've seen recently (at home or in a theater, either one)? 

A huge fan of popcorn--not sweet or salty-just plain popcorn with a dab of butter.  When youngest daughter played basketball, I jokingly told people we were on a popcorn diet because by the time we arrived home from the game it would be 10 0'clock and there was no way I was cooking at this hour. So hub and I ate tons of popcorn for dinner!

I haven't been to the movies since 2019 (not mentioning why...ya'll know) and I can't think of a good movie I have watched at home.  But, yesterday I watched the series 13 Reasons Why on Netflix and had some popcorn.

2. What's something you didn't realize was going to take so much of your time as an adult?

Even though I live by myself now, I still try to figure this out.  It was much harder when all the family was here.

3. Your favorite yellow something? 

The sunflower was my daughter's favorite flower and the ones she used for her wedding. She use to tell me that a sunflower represents positivity (I have no clue if this is true).  

4. Why do you write? 

To improve my brain function (ha!)  Writing has been an outlet for me to be able to express my feelings.  After writing I am somewhat happier.

5. Share a favorite memory associated with snow.

Sledding at night with a big fire.  A group of kids from my neighborhood, would go sledding at night.  We always built a fire on the other side of the hill (adults would supervise).  Such fun times.

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

This little cutie turned FOUR on Saturday.  His birthday plans had to be cancelled due to the weather.  He came to my house on Friday (and was supposed to spend the night...ugh) but his secret surprise that Mom and Dad had planned was moved up a day (due to weather).  I was able to give him his birthday present early (Monster Remote Truck) and we had a 'little' party with these delicious cookies.

He was a little sad when he had to leave...and I didn't want to ruin his surprise, so I told a little white lie (that is okay when you don't want to ruin a surprise for grandson).  His parents had bought tickets to take him to a Monster Truck Event in Greensboro.  And yes, by the pics daughter sent me later, his eyes were smiling.

Plans changed but Grandson was so happy!

Have a great day! and stay warm!


  1. Precious times with grandchildren! Nothing quite like them, is there. Such cute cookies and what a great surprise from Mom and Dad. I also think our grands delight in having the whole of a grandparent's attention as well. Until they turn 14 that is. LOL!

  2. I enjoyed your answers chuckling along and nodding my head. Glad things came together for sweet grandson! Happy Hodgepodge!

  3. The night sledding sounds like so much fun!
    Sounds like your grandson had a super fun birthday, even if his surprise cut in on your time with him!
