WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE #419

Thank you Joyce.
To play along click HERE

1. It's like my mama always said, "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get."  

Sorry, I have nothing that my mom said. 

2. May 11th is National Eat What You Want Day. What will you be having by way of celebration? 

Since we were on our second day of driving home from Great Falls Montana that means that we were going to have Aurelio's Pizza from Chicago because there is one on the North side of Las Vegas. 

This is a small one that we eat in the car.
We also bring another one home with us!

3. Describe your idea of a perfect spring day.

You wake up to the birds singing. The sun is out, the weather is perfect so you sit outside and have a cup of coffee admiring all the Spring flowers in bloom. 

Of course I never do that! 

4. Success, fulfillment, growth, achievement...pick one and tell us how it relates to your life in some way, either currently or in days gone by. 

I'm just going to say that fulfillment is my family and nothing matters more to me. The days I spend with my children and our grandson mean everything to me. 

5. I saw this going around on various social media sites and thought it would be fun to answer here. The last thing you bought on Amazon is your weapon in battle. How will you wield it?  (if you're not an Amazon shopper, then the last thing you bought online anywhere)

Actually the last thing I bought on Amazon was a set of fine point pens for Amber so watch out!! 

6. Insert your own random thought here. 


We just got home from Montana last night. It's a long two day drive. Also because I wasn't home for the last 9 days I may not get around to visiting everyone. I did read some blog posts while I was gone but visiting with Amber and Dylan was the focus of our trip.

I love how you love being with your family - I do too. Be careful coming home.

Mama always said to me If wishes were horses all beggars would ride, which meant stop wishing it isn't gonna work. I am out of luck, the last thing I bought was a sheer valance. I guess I could use it as a garrote. ha ha

There are several favorite things about making the long trip to visit our son and family. The first and main one is just being with them. Second is the fun things we do while there; third is eating different foods; and fourth is coming home. Sounds like you did just about all those things. So glad you were able to go and enjoy your trip with your family.

I really don't have any Mama words of wisdom to share...she was wise but I don't have any sayings.
I guess family is on the top of my list too.
HaHa..the last thing I bought was a transfer shower bench for Dave..I guess it's my weapon against falling in the shower since he can only use his one leg at this time.
Welcome home

Tom sits outside with his coffee almost every morning ... while I'm content to stay in my jammies where non-one can see me. LOL.
That's one of the best memes I've seen!

The only thing I can think of that my mom used to say is "If you don't stop crying I'll give you something to cry about"
That pizza looks so good.

Anne in the kitchen said...

Mom would look you squarely in the eye (especially if you were being a little less than truthful) and say "This above all, to thine own self be true"

Glad you guys made it back safely Debby! That pizza looks so delicious! I bet it is yummy! I like your contentment to be with family, no matter where you may be! Family is so important! Will you be seeing James this weekend?

'Take your coat off indoors, otherwise it's no use outside'. That's one my mum used to say a lot and I must admit: now I do too!

Nice to see you back and glad you had a good time at Amber's.

Last thing bought on Amazon: nose spray and a monthly planner. Watch out! 🤣🤣🤣

Kirstin said...

That pizza looks amazing. YUM! I've always wanted to visit Montana. I love that quote you shared too.

Carla from The River said...
