I have missed two weeks of the Hodgepodge and I have sure missed it. It doesn't seem like Wednesday when I don't participate. I'm not really sure when Joyce finds the time to "dream up" the questions but perhaps she does it while she's doing a hundred other things. Whatever, we appreciate her faithfulness.
1. July is National Anti-Boredom Month. When was the last time you were bored? What's your go-to cure for boredom?
Hum......I cannot even remember the last time I was bored. I find that there is always something to do, someone to see or a good deed to be done. I mean when you have a house, there are always closets that need to be cleaned, drawers that need to be organized and on and on the list goes. It's not that I necessarily enjoy such jobs, but it has to be done and if I can't think of anything else to do then I'll tackle one of them and it certainly takes any and all boredom out of life. ~smile~
2. What's the last thing you made a reservation for?
Hubby and I eat with friends most every Sunday at the country club we are members of and they require reservations. So, we made reservations this past Sunday.
3. What's one thing on your summer 'bucket list'? Any plans to make it happen?
Since we are building a house we will not be going on any long trips for sure. We will make a couple of short trips but guess you could say that I don't have a "bucket list" this summer. But, on the other hand, I ponder a lot just exactly how our move from this house (we lived in it 33 years) to our new house is going to transpire. It makes me dizzy just thinking about all the packing that is going to have to happen. So, guess I could say that coming up with the easiest possible plan of moving is on my summer bucket list. We will not be moving until next Spring but I intend to begin the "going through and getting rid of" process this fall. I can't wait!!!
4. What's your favorite summertime sip?
Ah,a medium unsweet tea with a tad of cranberry flavoring from Sonic. It's doesn't get much better in my humble opinion.
5. What do you find is the best way to handle another person's hostility and hopefully ease the tension?
Just do not "go there" with them - not sure that always works but it sounds good anyway. I don't have a lot of experience in this.
6. Your favorite film set in summer?
Hands down, GREASE!!! John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John rocked it out in that movie and the music was the BEST! I might have to watch it again one day soon (perhaps if I get bored).
7. What word are you using too much lately?
I'm not too sure if I say it all that much, but when I am writing I tend to overuse the word "just" if I am not careful. I'm not sure why, but guess I must really like the word.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Well, where is the rain when we need it? Our contractor had hoped that he would be pouring the regular foundation for our house by week's end, but that's not going to happen now. The dirt that they filled inside the blocks has not settled and it must settle and that generally takes a good rain. So, since we haven't had rain, Hubby took them hoses and a sprinkler and it ran around the clock Monday and Tuesday. Hubby was faithful to go and move it every few hours so that all of it is covered in water. And, rain is predicted for today, so it may get another dose. But, Hubby says the more it settles the better the foundation. So, sounds good to me. But, I'm just ready to see sticks going up in the air!
