Hodgepodge Wednesday



1. Have you ever been served breakfast in bed? Do you enjoy that? If someone were serving you breakfast in bed this coming weekend what would you hope to see on the tray? Do you know that I "think" my kids brought me breakfast in bed many, many years ago, but I'm not for sure.  I'm really not a "breakfast in bed" kinda gal.  I get up early and if someone was going to serve me breakfast in bed they would have to get up really, really early and that's not likely going to happen.  ~smile~  But, if someone were, I would want to see coffee, fruit, toast and maybe some scrambled eggs and bacon. I will say that Hubby has brought me coffee in bed a few times over the past 39 years on a Saturday morning.  I sleep in a bit later on Saturdays and if he can figure out to work the coffee pot, he'll surprise me occasionally. He's not a coffee drinker, so he and a coffee pot are strangers. ~grin~



2. What is one piece of advice you would give a new mother? Crying, dirty diapers, sleepless nights,and cuts and bruises are really nothing.  Peer pressure, choosing a life vocation, choosing a life partner, etc.  These are the things that weigh heavy on a Mom's heart and are the things that really matter.  Enjoy those babies because they grow up to be adults before you can turn around twice and those baby issues become adult issues. ~smile~

3. When was the last time you wanted to scream? Explain. Oh, there are just some things that do not need to be "aired" on one's blog and this is one of those times.  Now, that ought to get your curiosity aroused. ~giggle~

4. Can you hula hoop? Oh, yes, I can, but I no longer do.  I can't afford to get my back out of whack, so I gave it up a few years back. ~wink~

5. What is something people do in traffic that really bothers you? Lingering at the red light, usually because they are texting or just not paying attention and driving a slow speed in the left hand lane.  I'm not a speed demon at all, but I do not like to be trying to get around someone and can't because there's a "slow poke" in the left hand lane. I truly try to be a very tolerant driver because it's does no good to be "short fused" when you are driving. 

6. What do you do when people don't admit they're wrong?  Remind myself not to be the same way and be willing to admit I was wrong gracefully.

7. What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word 'fun'? Oh, Disney World, Branson, Gatlinburg, New York. All these come to mind because I have had such fun at all of these places, more than once and hopefully will again.

8. Insert your own random thought here. I'm not sure where the weather is coming from that we are currently enjoying. NOT!!  It has been in the mid-40's the past two mornings and rather cool throughout the day. It seems that Spring just up and left! I'm begging it to return because I was a mighty happy gal while it was here.  Spring, oh, Spring, where are Thou?

  2. I have never had breakfast in bed. I would worry about crumbs! The coffee pot and I are strangers too - never had coffee in my life! Hope spring comes back to you!

  3. I enjoyed your answers today, especially the new mother advice, which was spoken like someone whose been there, done that.

    I also read your previous post about your dad's wooden creations. They are all so beautiful. I'm sure that you treasure each one of them, I know I would.

  4. I am soo glad you popped by my blog as I soo enjoyed yours as well. I really appreciate your answer to new moms as truer words have never been spoken. When my kids were young I agonized over the silliest of things as I dwell back on it now. But as they grew and matured and made decisions for themselves, well that was REALLY a much different story. They are babies and little ones for such a short time. I read your previous post and how neat to have those things your dad made. Soo pretty. I especially loved the hope chest. I can see why you treasure these things so. Looking forward to visiting again!

    Blessings, Debbie

  6. You are so right about the things that weigh heavy on a momma's heart.

    And your little hula comment sounds like a fun little poem , what with the back and the whack!

  7. I'm with your hubby ... I'm NOT a coffee drinker, so I don't have a clue how to make coffee for my hubby.

    I'm with you on #5 - !

    Spring's not here in Illinois ... we had frost this morning! Frost! On May 4th! Ugh!

  9. Yes, the nights have been cooler here and I've had to pull out my long sleeved pajamas again! The days have warmed up later in the week.



    Have a happy mother's day weekend!

  10. Great answers...love the not sharing on what made you scream..such wisdom in not "airing" everything.
    Oh advice for new moms..yes, yes, yes, the younger years will take your energy and the older years your emotional energy and prayers

    We had the same kind of week of weather...today is 75! Yea, it is back, now I can turn the heater back off.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  11. Just popped over to visit you to look at the handprint/footprint artwork that the kids and I are about to do for the grandmas for Mother's Day ;)

    I always love reading your Wednesday Hodgepodge posts - and all of your posts for that matter - to learn a little bit more about you! Your new mom advice is so true. Puts it in perspective!

    I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day and pray you're at peace all day, knowing half of your heart is miles away ;) Lots of love!
