WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE

Volume 278
Join in the fun.....
Thank you Joyce! 

1. It's National Waffle Day (August 24th)...what decision are you currently 'waffling over'? (or share one you've recently 'waffled over')

Nothing specific. Have been giving some thoughts to getting a puppy. It's been a hard year and I need a boost. Of course after being in the hospital this week the thought of a puppy is way in the future because of my strength and energy right now. Mark doesn't have the same waffling feelings I do! 

2. It's the middle of August, but I'm already seeing lots of autumn-related posts. Do you think we rush the seasons? If so, does that bother you? I saw (here) an end of summer bucket list that included-

make s'mores, read a new (or favorite) book in the park, eat something delicious and bad for you at a state fair, be a tourist for the day, have a pot luck picnic, book a last minute summer getaway, relax by or in the pool, take a hike to watch the sunset, have a day on the lake, try a new summer recipe

Which activities on the list might you squeeze in before summer officially comes to a close? 

Yes I do think we rush the season's although it is not necessarily us but merchandiser's but after working at Hallmark for 7 years it is just the process of time and filling the shelves with the next holiday. I will probably read a new book and maybe sit by our pool in our community.

3. Your favorite summertime 'art' found in nature?

I am going to go with watching the butterflies in our yard and the amazing amount of hummingbirds we have this year coming to our flowers. 

Speaking of that I watched a movie on TV in the hospital that was so amazing. Wings of Life narrated by Meryl Streep. (IMDb) (Disneynature) So many things would not be here without the flower!!

4. Stephen R. Covey is quoted as saying 'We judge ourselves by our intentions, and others by their actions.' Agree or no? Do you define yourself based on your intentions, your actions, or something else? 

I am going to disagree but mainly because I just read this quote: "You think you're a good guy because of you base yourself of your intentions; while the whole world is reacting to your actions. The results in your life today are based on your actions yesterday." Actually I tend to base myself on my actions. 

5. Are you useful in a crisis? Elaborate. 

I believe I can be. My mind works pretty hard at working out a solution to a problem and finding the right words to say to those in need of comfort. 

6. What's been your go-to dish this summer? Is it something you'll continue making as the seasons change?

I don't think we have had one this summer other than our usual tradition of Friday night pizza. We started with Home Run Inn Pizza from Chicago over a year ago which we can buy at Sprout's. 

They are the most amazing frozen pizza on the market. Saves us a ton of money compared to ordering and having something delivered. Yes of course that will continue......

7. Adult coloring books are a thing now. Have you jumped on the bandwagon? If not is this something you think you might enjoy?

I have but I haven't colored a lot yet. I bought the books right away. I have two tiny travel ones that I started to color in. Just worked on one in the hospital.

8.  Insert your own random thought here. 

If you follow me on Facebook you will know that I went to the hospital on Sunday. I hadn't felt well since returning home from our exhausting trip to New York. Heck I still haven't posted about Florida in June so it may be awhile before I get NYC blogged. I will be writing a post about the hospital because I like to keep a journal here! 


I have new issues which I will explain. Blessings for the timing which I believe in strongly. So besides my COPD/Asthma I now have Atrial Fibrillation of the heart. Anyway I am home and will be working on breathing treatments, resting and getting accustomed to the new medications this week. 

As bad as it may sound there is hope for a better way of life for me. Heart vs Lungs.....they both can give you shortness of breath and figuring out which it is at the time!!! Seeing the new doctor next Tuesday because we have work to do.......

I do have to miss opening day of bowling this week but have high hopes of being there next week.
