WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE

Volume 230
Thank you Joyce.

1.  I recently read here about four secrets to happiness from around the world. They were-

Overcome your fears by facing them head on, allow yourself to relax and reset, work to live versus living to work, and find the good in life. Not sure if these are the actual secret to happiness, but which of the four do you struggle with most? Which one comes most easily to you?

I struggle with overcoming my fears and facing them head on. Find the good in life comes most easily for me but it is more about being thankful for what I have. 

2. How would you spend a found $20 bill today?

Go to the show, have some popcorn (no butter) and a large bottled water. 

3. Ego trip, power trip, guilt trip, round trip, trip the light fantastic, or trip over your own two feet...which 'trip' have you experienced or dealt with most recently? Explain.

I'm going to go with round trip because I recently drove 75 miles to Escondido to meet up with Alexis my blog friend who was visiting the San Diego area and drove back home a few hours later. 

4. If you could master any physical skill in the world what would it be, and how would you use that skill?

I'm not sure.....

5. As July draws to a close, let's take inventory of our summer fun. Since the official first day of (North American) summer (June 20th) have you...been swimming? enjoyed an ice cream cone? seen a summer blockbuster? camped? eaten corn on the cob? gardened? deliberately unplugged? watched a ballgame? picked fruit off the vine? taken a road trip? read a book?  Are any of these activities on your must-do-before-summer-ends list?

I have been swimming, I enjoyed some ice cream, I've seen a summer blockbuster, ate corn on the cob, deliberately unplugged, picked some tomatoes and I'm just finishing a book! 

Road (beach) trip is still on our list for Cambria, CA and Carmel, CA which we are in the stage of finding a week that works for both of us. 

6. The Republican Presidential candidates will debate on August 6th. What's your question?

I have too many and it would be a waste of time because I wouldn't believe them! What candidate has ever delivered what they promised?

7. What's your most listened to song so far this summer?

I'm still in love with the soundtrack from "Begin Again" and listen to the CD all the time. 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Actually my random has to do with part of my answer for #5. As much as I like to buy books I don't read often so I started something new last week. I've been going to bed around 10:30 and reading for awhile which I am enjoying immensely. 

I had seen the movie "If I Stay" last September and a blog friend mentioned that there was a book which continues the story called "Where She Went" which is what I am reading right now!
