WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE

 
Volume 171
Why don't you join in?
Thank you Joyce :)


1. April 22nd is Earth Day. Are you inspired by nature? In what way?

Yes nature does inspire me with all its beauty.  The mountains, the trees, the sky, the flowers are all awe inspiring.

2. Down to earth, four corners of the earth, move heaven and earth, not have an earthly chance, or salt of the earth...which earthly idiom have you most recently encountered?

I haven't got a clue.......

3. Share one piece of advice you might give a newly engaged couple.

Enjoy your wedding day and don't stress about it. It is one day that is over quickly so focus on the fun and enjoy yourselves. Nothing else really matters.

4. When did you last engage someone to perform a job, task, service, home repair, or improvement? On a scale of 1-10 (ten being the best) how would you rate their work and/or your satisfaction with the job or service provided?

We haven't had any one out to perform any of those services in many years.

5. When did you last find yourself engaged in small talk? Are you awkward or an expert or somewhere in between?

I haven't talked to anyone lately who wasn't family or friends but I think I am very good at small talk. I like the challenge of talking to new people. 

6.  What was the last historic place you visited?

I haven't visited a historic place in a long time. 

7. The world would be a better place if we just_____.

All got along! 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I feel like every day I am engaged in small talk….

There's so much beauty in the natural world, it would be hard NOT to be inspired by it.

Little Penpen said...

This obviously wasn't a good week for hodepodge for you. (not many answers) LOL I'm with you on the pinterest. I deactivated my facebook again last night, so I can concentrate on 'doing' some pinterest projects.

Sandra said...

that cartoon at the end is ME ME ME...

Debbie said...

Enjoyed this, but your cartoon at the end was hilarious. I did that just yesterday, lol. Loaded up a cart, and then turned the computer off. Enjoy your day!

Loved the cartoon at the end, Debby. I struggle with small talk, I often think maybe my small talk ends up like an inquisition since I seem to ask lots of the questions like "do you work?" "where" then on to "do you have children?" "how many". Maybe I need to develop this a bit more.

So true about the advice to give to newly engaged people, and also to concentrate on the marriage a bit, not just the wedding preparations.

I had seen that eCard recently too! Too funny!! :-)

Montanagirl said...

Fun post! I put stuff in my cart all the time, and then change my mind....good thing I'm not in a real store; doubt they'd be real happy with me if I loaded it up, then walked out. LOL

Everything about nature inspires me, because God created it all to bring us joy!

Last summer I visited historic Cannery Row in Monterey. It was AWESOME!

TexWisGirl said...

i'm good at small talk. and i'm down to earth. :)

I love your random thought today! I don't do pintrest, but I'm notorious for filling shopping carts and not purchasing :)

Cranberry Morning said...

Haha! Funny cartoon for the random thought. :-) Isn't that so true.

April said...

That cartoon is me to a T! Yes, one's wedding day goes by so very quickly...relish in each and every moment!

Nikki Scatchard said...

Wow I had the exact same answer to #7 ! :) I hope you had a great Easter and i bet the weather is gorgeous down south as it is up here. We had a beautiful day Sunday, we had brunch at my house then played softball at the park to sharpen my sisters skills. She'd just joined a league.

Joyce said...

Course computers are 'smart' now : ) When you abandon a shopping cart they send you a message reminding you that you were shopping. Hope you have a good day today Debby!

Rebecca Jo said...

I will spend HOURS putting things in a cart online shopping & then thinking, "I have no money" & click off :) Fun while it lasted :)

Love love love your random...it's so me! Happy Wednesday!

Cathy said...

Love your random!!

Lea said...

I love #8, how hysterical, especially about filling up your cart and not buying any of it.

Stacy said...

Haha! I love that quote. I think I might even have it pinned. It's so true, though. Of the hundreds of pins I have, I've only tried a handful...and all of those have been recipes.

bp said...

Good answer for #3.

I'm late in visiting today. Happy Thursday"

Cyndy @ Back in the Bush said...

The best advice I've ever heard of for newlyweds is: "Keep the fights clean and the sex dirty." LOL!
If you want to visit an historic place, go to St Augustine next time you're in FLorida!! =)
Totally agree with #7.

Chatty Crone said...

I agree - enjoy the wedding day and forget the small stuff - in fact do that each and every day.
