Hodgepodge Wednesday

1. Will you watch the Super Bowl? If so who will you root for? If you are outside the USA what is the 'big deal sporting event' in your own country?  Sometimes we gather with friends and some watch the Super Bowl and some of "us" just enjoy the fun and fellowship. I'm NOT into football at all and barely even know who is playing and I certainly don't care who wins,but guess I'll pull for whoever my Hubby is pulling for.  However, he's not all that excited about this year's Super Bowl.  Now, last year, when our Saints were in it, even I managed to get pretty excited about that.  We have no plans at this time, so it may just be the two of us, chillin' in our recliners and Hubby keeping me current on the score.

2. Is ignorance bliss?  On a whole lot of issues it is and saves a whole lot of worry and concern.  In other issues, not so much.  So, guess it depends on what we're ignorant of at the time. 

3. Which of the seven dwarfs are you? (and just in case your Disney is a little bit rusty, here they are-Bashful, Doc, Dopey, Grumpy, Happy, Sleepy, and Sneezy)
 I would have to say HAPPY.  Now, not that I am like some super happy person all the time, but it is my general nature to be happy.  I smile a lot and I love, love to laugh and might I add, I have a very loud laugh. ~chuckle~  I just feel better all over when I'm happy.

4. When you are riding in the car with another couple how do you organize the seating? (Men up front? Women up front? Couples sit together?)  Yes, men in front, women in back and when we have more than 2 couples, we have the "women's table and the men's table" at the restaurant. Does that say something about our age?  I'm not sure, but it just makes for better conversation as far as we're concerned.  I mean, let's face it, men and women do enjoy talking about totally different subjects. 

5. What is beauty? One of the many definitions I found on the internet stated: Beauty is that which is attractive, pleasing, fine or good looking.  And, as we all know, beauty is definitely in the "eye of the beholder." This is a "loaded" question for sure! ~smile~I'll leave it at that.

6. If someone asks you to bring an appetizer or a dessert to a party in their home, which would you choose?Hands down, a dessert!  I'm a lot more confident in my dessert making ability than my appetizer making ability.

7. What is your crowd pleasing go-to appetizer?If  you are talking about one that I make, I guess it would be "Cocktail Weiners."  You can't really mess them up and folks around here love them. Just put a jar of apple jelly, a small jar of mustard and a couple of packages of Little Smokies in a crock pot and  a couple of hours later, they're ready to enjoy.

8. Insert your own random thought here.This is my 207th blog entry.  I started my blog on March 21, 2009 and never did I realize the enjoyment that it would bring to me. I had heard the word "blog" for several years before I ever became a blogger, but I really didn't have an understanding of what a blog was until about a year before I started my own.  It's so interesting the different formats folks take with their blogs. I sometimes feel so intimidated with the depth and wisdom of some folks entries but depth and wisdom is really not words one would use to describe mine for sure.~smile~  But, that's okay , think mine would be described as merely heartfelt, warm and friendly.(now, understand, I do not mean to insinuate that blogs that are full of wisdom and depth are not heartfelt, warm and friendly, they certainly are)  I've been blessed by so many of the blogs I follow and look forward to the times I sit down to read them.  I often have to remind myself that the world will really not come to an end if I miss reading some entries a few times. ~smile~ Thanks to all of you who have become a follower and encourager of mine. You bring a smile to my heart and face.  "Blogging Buddies" are just the BEST! (hey, that would make a cute bumper sticker, except that my Hubby doesn't allow bumper stickers on our vehicles.) Shucks!

A big thank you to Joyce for coming up with our questions each Wed.  It's just another great way to get to know the folks in Blogsphere!  For more enjoyable Hodgepodge reading, just click the link above.

Hi there! My name is Lea. I've been wife to the best Hubby for 44 years....Mom to a son and daughter....CiCi to 4 precious Grans....lover of family and friends....enjoy laughter and a good time....shopper....picture taking maniac....maker of delicious fudge....organizational enthusiast....memory maker....Southern Belle...and most importantly.....a Child of the King! Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Thanks for your very sweet comment : ). I love to do the little smokies in my crock pot with a jar of grape jelly and a jar of hot ketchup. If you can't find hot ketchup you can use chili sauce but the ketchup is good.

  2. Lea, I enjoyed reading your answers, but especially enjoyed your comments about blogging. You said it perfectly. We've both been blogging about the same amount of time and I'm guessing we're in the same age category and both seemed a bit clueless before we took a stab at it. Judging by your blog, you're a lot more savvy than I am, but like you I really love meeting new people and getting to know them. Thanks for your efforts.

  3. I love stopping by and reading your blog ~ we are huge football fans! Now don't get me wrong ~ we are not huge Seahawks fans (at all) For the Superbowl we can't wait to watch the Steelers!!! Hugs to You, EMichelle

  4. Wow! 209 posts? In November, I celebrated my third blogiversary. I share many of your same sentiments. Blogging has beome a very important way of expressing myself. My husband even reads my blog because it helps him understand me better.

    This year, as a first-year English teacher, I have assigned my 11th and 12th graders the task of blogging twice a week. I love how I've been able to get to know them better through their blogs. I know of one persson who just might keep up with it after May.

  5. Those little smokies sure do look good. I'll have to remember those and maybe make them for the football game. This was my first visit to your blog and I so enjoyed it, I will be back.

  6. I would definitely say you are happy.
    You have a sweet smile.

  7. Good grief! I could have written some of your answers myself. Seems we have a lot in common. Would like to bestow an award on you if you'll accept. Details on my blog. I'm your newest follower!

  8. Great answers. I love those cocktail wieners. So glad you took up blogging and we are buddies. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD
