Hodgepodge Wednesday

1. Would you rather talk to everyone at a crowded party for a short time or have a significant conversation with two people? I do like to have significant conversation, so I guess I would say two people, but I certainly seem to have conversation with a whole lot more folks than that at a gathering.  Perhaps I'd just as soon talk with a lot of folks for a shorter time. Duh!  Well, hopefully I'll do better with question #2. ~smile~

2. What objects do you remember from your parent's living room? Oh, my goodness, we always had this crystal candy dish sitting on a coffee table.  I mean, the same one FOREVER and it always had hard candy in it and that hard candy was always stuck together.  But, that didn't stop me from digging in, breaking it apart and enjoying it.  Oh, what memories! I'm now wondering what happened to that candy dish. 

3. Do you hog the bed? Steal the covers? Snore?
Well, Hubby and I share a KING size bed and there is no reason to hog the bed or to steal the covers.  I mean, there's plenty of room and then some for both of us. We each have an extra pillow in the bed with us, and that can make things interesting at times. ~smile~  As to snoring.........Hubby will snore on a rare occasion, but it has never been a bother. Thank goodness!! ~wink~

  4. Speaking of Easter dinner....what is your favorite way to cook/eat lamb? Or does just the thought of that make you squeamish? If you're not cooking lamb what will be your entree du jour on Easter Sunday? I have never eaten or cooked Lamb and can't imagine that I ever will.  I really have not started thinking about our Easter meal, but guess it's time I did so.  We're a big fan of grilled Pork Tenders, so that may be our meat and then I'll figure out what else to go with it between now and then. 

5. Let's throw some politics into this week's mix-oooohhh...Do you know the whereabouts of your birth certificate and when was the last time you had to produce it to prove you're you? I can place my hand on my birth certificate in two seconds.  I keep our birth certificates, passports and such in a file in our home office.  The last time we needed them was when we had to renew our passports 2 1/2 years ago.  

6. As a child, how did people describe you? Happy and talkative.  I so well remember that my first grade teacher wrote on my report card that after the Lord made me He threw away the mold and that I was a pleasure to teach.  I certainly didn't know that when I was in her class, but many years later I saw it as I was looking through my old report cards.  I do well remember loving my first grade teacher and I kept in touch with her for many, many years. 

7. What do you complain about the most?The lack of professionalism in our society.  Call me old fashioned or whatever, but I see no place for jeans in an office, I see one dressing in dressy casual attire.  I firmly believe that dressing professionally aids in one acting professionally.  I am appalled almost on a daily basis at the dress, the attitude and lack of professionalism in what is thought of as professional offices or businesses. 'Nuff said!

8. Insert your own random thought here. 
 I will be flying out very early in the morning headed to Virginia.  I may or may not blog while I am away, but never fear, I'll have lots to share when I return.  I'll be back on Monday afternoon.  I plan to have a wonderful time being with relatives from my Mom's side of the family.  I'm so thankful for family!

Thanks Joyce for these great questions this week!

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. Great answers. Have a fun and safe trip.

  2. I loved my first grade teacher too. Teachers of little ones can really influence our earliest attitudes towards school. Regarding #7-I feel that way sometimes about church. Not that we need to be dressed to the nines but I like to see a little bit of effort for those who are able. I don't like the 'just rolled out of bed' look in church.

    Enjoy your trip!

  3. Have a wonderful, safe trip!

  4. Oh, Lea, my mom had a candy dish too and I so remember the hard candy and how it would stick together...made it taste
    When I was small,my family called me "Little Orphan Annie"...not that I looked like her at all but was always running around playing and probably looked like a little rag-muffin...and playing mud pies...
    I totally agree with you about the a former teacher, the student's dress could set the tone..not expensive dress...but neat and appropriate..made for a better disciplined atmosphere...
    I hope you have a wonderful trip to see family and enjoy the Spring with them...look forward to pictures upon your return...hugs

  5. The grilled pork tenders look yummy!
    I have never had pork from the grill.

    Have fun on your trip!

  6. Have a great time on your trip CiCi, and be safe.

  7. Agreed: dress professionally and act professional if you're in an office. Super casual dress makes me think "sloppy work" even if it's not true.

  8. The hard candy story surely brought back many memories. Have a great time with your family.

  9. As a teacher, I do wear blue jeans two or three days a week; however, I do wear nice shirts and heels with them. I think it's possible, in certain professions, to dress casually but have a professional "look" by taking the extra time to add special touches.

  10. Have a safe trip!

    I agree about the lack of professional dress. I've noticed this at schools. I know the teachers of younger grades need to get down on the floor with the kids and dresses are not always appropriate but there is a way to look professional besides dresses!

  11. I haven't thought about candy dishes in a long time but I do remember them well. Snoring use to be an issue but not so much anymore and he says the same about me. You are so right about professionalism. Have a great trip!

  12. I remember my first grade teacher. Mrs. Skinner. I remember thinking, when I learned that my teacher was named Mrs. Skinner, that she was going to skin me! ha!

    Have a safe trip!

  13. This was fun!! I was definitely a happy, talkative child also! My hubby and I have a king sized bed, too. And somehow he still manages to take up almost the whole thing! Crazy!

  14. I always love Q&A's. Have fun in Virginia:)

  15. i like to talk to one person the whole time... i'm introverted like that. i think you're a social butterfly! you're sweet like that. hope you're enjoying the trip and family!


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
