Wednesday Hodgepodge


From this Side of the Pond

1. Do you like the beach? How far do you have to drive to get to the nearest beach? Your least favorite thing about the beach? Last beach trip you took? 

I like going to the beach; there is something with the ocean that makes me calm and at peace.  The closest beach is about 8 hrs away.  My least favorite is when the wind is blowing hard and the sand stings you.  Last year I went to the beach.

2. Are you known for making waves or are you more of a 'go along to get along' kind of person? Explain.

I am more of a 'go along to get along'.  When it comes to certain conversation topics, I usually keep quiet or just nod my head in agreement.  Same goes when with a group and trying to decide what to do or where to eat.

3. A favorite song that in some way references the beach? A favorite book and/or movie with a beach-y setting? 

Favorite song..."Under the Boardwalk" this song always reminds me of the beach. Book ..The Beach House  favorite movie...."Blue Lagoon".

4.Tuesday is National Simplicity Day...what's a simple pleasure you've enjoyed this week? What's something you could eliminate from your life to make things simpler? 

Getting harvest from my small garden!  Chasing and getting rid of groundhogs would make my life simpler.

5. What's something you love to do? Do you do it often? Why or why not? 

Love to read and travel.  I read often just about every day.  I don't get to travel as much as I would like because I don't like traveling solo.

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

Here lately, I feel like I am living in a rainforest.  It has rained for the past 7 days and trying to take care of my garden and lawn has been playing dodgeball with the rain/storms.

Have a great rest of the week!


  1. I agree with you, being at the beach brings peace and calm and wonder of God making all this for us to enjoy. I need to get my reading mojo back. I read a lot of the beginning of the year, but have slowed down drastically.

  2. Been raining a lot where I am too and today, it is finally sunny!

  3. We've had a lot of rain here too. I think our part of the state is in a drought so I guess the rain is needed. If only it would take down the humidity with it. The minute the rain quits the humidity is right back up. Hope there is a fun trip in your future!

  4. You've got me singing Under the Boardwalk...funny how the words come back to me. We got rid of the first groundhog we've ever seen here and it sounds like that was a good choice. Haven't seen any more yet. Hope you can get the garden free of it! Happy Hodgepodge.

  5. I enjoyed your answers....Yes, getting a harvest would be a wonderful simple thing!!!
