Who loves Wednesdays? I do! I do! (wildly waving my arms in the air). Time to join Joyce From This Side of the Pond for Wednesday Hodgepodge. She asks the questions. We supply the answers. Then we share the love. Let's go......
1. Share one thing that really makes your day.
What really makes my day is a hug. I love it when the kids put their arms around me and stay long enough for me to hug them back. Makes my day every single time. Especially now that they are teens and it is hard to get them to stand still long enough for the hug!
2. Lots of these kinds of lists out there, but one found here says the fifteen most colorful places on earth are:
Vernazza, Cinque Terre, Italy~Burano, Italy~Havana, Cuba~Rio de Janiero, Brazil~Chefchaouen, Morocco~Balat, Istanbul, Turkey~Menton, France~Jodhpur, India~La Baca, Buenos Aires, Argentina~Guanajuato, Mexico~Capetown, South Africa~Valparaiso, Chile~Wroclaw, Poland~San Francisco, California~and Pelourhino, Salvador, Brazil.
Of those listed which would you most like to see up close and in person? Of all the places you've seen or traveled in your own life, what would you say was one of the most colorful?
3."Everything you want is on the other side of fear." Jack Canfield In general, would you agree or disagree with that statement? Why?
In general, I would agree with this. What it means to me is: you have to get out of your comfort area to experience what life is really all about. I am guilty of not challenging myself enough to get out of my comfort area.
4. Imagine you're stranded on a desert island and dessert appears...what do you hope it is? Do you ever struggle to remember which spelling is desert and which is dessert?
5. What song almost always makes you cry?
I'm crying right now as I listen to this. Celine was Richard's favorite singer (right there next to Barbara Streisand). This song was his ringtone on my phone. We played it at his memorial service. I know that my heart will go on......and so will his!!
6. January is National Soup Month. Everything from soup to nuts, in the soup, thick as pea soup, souped up...which saying most recently applies to your life in some way? Explain.
We have had some foggy mornings recently where it is 'thick as pea soup.' I did not know that January is National Soup Month. I am making chili for dinner tonight! I will tell Harley (who isn't that fond of soup of any kind) that we are celebrating National Soup Month!!
7. Write a two word note to your younger self. What does it say?
Dear Younger Paula:
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I have finished my 30 day menu plan. Now I just need to plan a 'freezer cooking day.' All of January goals will then be achieved. Yay me!!
