100th Hodgepodge

Happy Cenntenial Anniversary
Thanks Joyce for 100 weeks of fun! Sure do hope you'll stick with us for a 100 more.

1. What creeps you out?Well, guess there's plenty of things that creep me out but I'll go with the first thing that came to my mind,  greasy, dirty hair.  That may not be your definition of creepy, but it gives me the "bejeebers."  I feel like water and shampoo are both readily accessible and rather inexpensive, so there's no excuse for it.
The other creepy thing that is more in tune with today is those folks that enjoy dressing up in  very realistic scary ways for Halloween.  I cannot stand it and it definitely "creeps me out."  Halloween is all about fun for kids  and scary is generally not fun for kids.

  2. What's your least favorite candy?

No doubt about it, Candy Corn!  I have never, ever liked it and am so amazed at how popular it is, especially at this time of year.  I think it is an attractive candy, but it is so, so sweet that it just makes me sick even thinking about it. And, licorice rates right there with Candy Corn. Ugh!

3. Are you a fan of scary movies?  What's the scariest movie you've ever seen?
No, do not like and do not go to or watch scary movies.  Give me a suspenseful movie and I'm a happy gal, but not scary.  I did watch Alfred Hitchcock's move, The Birds, when I was a teenager and my Daddy watched it with me.  Speaking of "creepy" those birds were very creepy.

  4. What part of life confuses you the most?
What part doesn't?  You know I'm sitting here laboring over this question way too long so think I'll just leave it at is confusing but thankfully I serve a God that can make sense out of that confusion.

5. Pumpkin, sunflower, sesame, poppy...what's your favorite seed?
I'm not a seed person, I don't even eat tomatoes because they have seeds.  Yep! I know that's hard to believe but it's the truth.  I don't mind sesame seeds on a roll or bun and I don't mind poppy seeds in something like Lemon Poppyseed Bread, but that's it for me and seeds. 

6. Imagine your life ten years from today...what's changed? Hummm........I'll be a sassy 70 year old (I hope), my sweet Grans will be 14 and 13 and surely I'll have a house all on one level. ~wink~  I guess all we can do is imagine because none of us know what tomorrow holds and I've seen so much in recent years where lives have ended and changed without warning in less than 24 hours.  

7.  What do you a) love the
most and b) like the least about the Hodgepodge?
I like to blog on a regular basis, and it's not always easy for me to come up with  topics. Hodgepodge takes care of that for me and give folks insight into my life by the answers that I give.
Sometimes the questions cause me to have to really think harder than I like to think.  But, hey, it gives my brain a good workout!
8.  Insert your own random thought here. 

Our Princess will be coming over with her Dad and Mom this evening to help us give out candy to all the Trick or Treaters.  Hubby loves giving out candy to the kiddos and always buys the best candy to give out.  We have a circle drive and we sit outside in our lawn chairs and enjoy the evening.  Sometimes Roscoe and Rhett even join us.  It will be a redneck sort of evening.

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. I didn't include candy corn, but I don't really care for it all that much. If I see some, I always try some ... I mean, it looks like it ought to be good. But I'm always disappointed.

    We are both creeped out by The Birds! ;-)

    And we agree on #7.

  2. Oh eww, I can't stand greasy hair either.

    I happen to really like candy corn but despise licorice.

  3. Good morning! Well I do like candy corn but it must be eaten in very small quantities as it is soo sweet, does get to ya. You do Halloween like we used to before we moved...enjoy your night!

  4. Greasy hair. Never thought of that, but yeah--it's a creepy gross sight! I hope you enjoy your night of candy-giving. Doubt we'll see much action up our way because of the roads and driveways being messy from Sandy.

  5. I will also be 70 in ten years. I hope to be reading more blogs as well.

  6. Your blog is always such a pretty place! I used to like candy corn 'til I ate a whole bag in college. It still makes me sick to think of it!

  7. Cover the candy corn with chocolate. Anything covered in chocolate is good. All candy is good; it's just that some is better than others.

  8. I can't stand candy corn...never have! To me, it's just colored sugar. BLECH! Greasy hair grosses me out to no end! I have to make sure I wash my hair daily...I like it to be nice and clean. Have fun with your grandkids tonight!

  9. It's such fun to read your posts! I like candy corn but rarely do eat it. It does look pretty though. Black licorice is something I dislike. I love poppy seed anything; muffins, bagels, etc. I agree with you on scary movies. I never liked them but... there was one I vividly remember and wish I had never seen it: The Night of the Living Dead! It was in black and white and I saw it at the drive in many many years ago. And ten years from now I'll be in a similar age as you. I hope to be able to continue to be used by God in whatever way He chooses for me.

    Blessings and love,

  10. I like candy corn in small doses, once per year. I tried the candy corn M&Ms this year and was not a fan.

    Greasy hair, huh? Well I guess it's safe to say that you're not a middle school teacher.haha

  11. Some of Wednesday's Hodgepodge didn't show up in my reader on Wednesday. You were one of them!
    Greasy dirty hair...good answer.
    First candy corn I have read. I do enjoy it but didn't buy any this year. Poppy Seeds are great in sweet breads and muffins. You know what, I think that sitting out side is a great idea. I love handing out the candy too!

  12. Your answers made me smile today, especially that greasy hair : )

    I don't love candy's better mixed with peanuts because then it tastes a bit like a payday, which I do love.

    Trying to catch up after all the weather excitement in our area. We had four inches of snow last night and it took hubs 2 hours to get home from work. We are ready for a quieter, precipitation-free weekend!


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!
