Wednesday Hodgepodge


From this Side of the Pond

1. August 24th is National Waffle Day...what's something you've 'waffled' on recently? 

Here lately, it has been yard work.  Just can't decide what to do!

2. Do you like waffles? Make your own or 'leggo my Eggo? Any favorite toppings or add-ins? Waffles or pancakes-which do you prefer? 

I do not like waffles, Eggo or pancakes.  Just never have liked them.

3. Do you have any momentos from this summer (or past summers)? What do you do with them? 

Yes, a beach bag (with my name and the place I was staying) and a container that will hold a beverage and my cell phone.  These are definitely items I will use again.  But the best momentos from this summer, are my memories.

4. One thing you'd like to do before summer ends? 

Before the summer ends, I would like to take one more boat ride on the lake as the sun is setting.

5. Life is too short to___________________________________. 

Life is to short to obsesses about the future or past.  Enjoy the matters. 

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

Monday was daughter and hub's anniversary.  Her husband had planned a little get-a-way over the weekend.  He had rented a cabin, made reservations for dinner, and made reservations for a massage. Daughter had no idea about the plans.

I kept all three grandsons!!  I enjoyed every minute of this precious time, BUT I was exhausted on Sunday.  Keeping up with a 4 year old and two year old twins is not for the faint or weak!

Have a great rest of the week and Enjoy Life!


  1. I really agree with your answer to #5, and we are all probably guilty of that to some extent. I can only imagine the energy it toke to keep up with and entertain your grands, but what a joy it must have been. Such a thoughtful thing for your SIL to do for your daughter.

  2. What an awesome surprise anniversary gift, and it must have made things so much easier for them knowing their kiddos were with grandma!

  3. You really had your hands full this weekend! I'm sure your daughter really appreciated it. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

  4. I'm glad you had a fun weekend with your grands! Hope you got a nap when the fun ended : )

  5. So glad got to be with your grandkids last weekend! Those are some good memories you will have I'm sure.

  6. Oh my! Just reading you had a 4-year and two -year-olds exhausts me! The boat ride sounds wonderful! I hope you squeeze it in!

  7. Oh man...hats off to you for watching those littles over the weekend. I can imagine your exhaustion!! How nice that you could treat your kids in this way. Your momentos sound nice and practical. Hope that boat ride becomes a reality.
