Wednesday Hodgepodge


From this Side of the Pond

1. Where do you get your news these days? 

Mostly from close friends, who research it all.  These friends keep me updated and let me know what to prepare for. 

Watching the news makes me nervous and I don' t know who is telling the truth or not.  I will watch my local news, but the world news, I don't. 

2. It's National Crab you like crab meat? What makes you crabby? 

I love crab meat and steamed crabs with all the seasoning, oh yeah how I love these.  When I lived in Baltimore, my uncles would take me on the Chesapeake Bay crabbing!

What makes me crabby is seeing and hearing parents being so ill to their children.  You know, parents have bad days, but as a parent we don't expect children to have bad days.

3. Does freedom mean more choices? Have you ever felt there were too many choices? Elaborate. 

I think freedom means more choices AND more choices mean more freedom.  Making choices for ourselves is an important part of who we are. People want to have greater control over their lives, my opinion.  I am grateful, I live where I do, to exercise my freedom and not in some undeveloped country.

Definitely too many choices!!  Just walk down a toothpaste aisle...Whitening, Mint flavor, Regular, Gum toothpaste, organic toothpaste or order from a menu at a restaurant (with or without cream, milk...white or condensed, with or without sugar (cane sugar or white sugar)  water (with or without lemon or do you want mineral water) AND this is just choices your have before even ordering your entree!  Sometimes this causes me to have anxiety!

4. Barbara Millicent Roberts was introduced to the world on March 9, 1959...that's Barbie to most of us. Did you have Barbies as a kid, or did you let your own children play with Barbies? What well known Barbara (living or not) would you most like to meet? 

I had Barbies as a kid and my girls had Barbies.  I have about 6 totes of Barbies my girls collected, especially the Holiday Barbies.

I would like  to meet two Barbara(s).  The first would be Barbara Bush just to sit and talk about her literacy organizations.

The second Barbara would be Barbara Eden.  I would like to ask her how I could fit into that bottle and just escape some of the noises of this world!

5. What are three things you value most in another person? 




6. Insert your own random thought here.

Today is the twins birthday.  TWO years old today and TWO years on that Friday when being discharged from the hospital, the world stopped!  

We celebrated their birthday Sunday because it was such a nice day (high 70s with blue skies) and this Sunday it is suppose to snow.

With all the 'craziness' going on, these boys bring me joy and my heart smiles.

Have a Great rest of the week and Enjoy Life!


  1. Happy Birthday to the twins!!

  2. I chuckled when I read your answer about Barbara Eden. Good answer! Happy birthday to the twins!

  3. I am so with you on the too many choices. That's exactly how I feel in the toothpaste aisle! And you and I value two of the same qualities in others. I almost picked loyalty too!

  4. I said loyalty as well; I pride myself on being loyal to people and I won't stand for people to betray me either.

  5. What a fun cake! Happy birthday to your special twosome!

  6. Oh boy! Happy Birthday to your twins. I can imagine how busy your world is with twins! My youngest brother and sister are twins. They were born when I was 12!

  7. I enjoyed your answers. Happy birthday(late) to the twins) cute!

  8. That's true about who is telling the truth on the news. I agree, parents have bad days but the kids don't need to! You're right about the anxiety when shopping because of all the choices. I like your choices on Barbara's. The boys are adorable! Happy 2nd Birthday....


Thankful for the Wednesday Hodgepodge
