Wednesday Hodgepodge

It's Wednesday and Joyce has given us her usual through provoking questions. She
stretches our brains and our memory, both of which are good for us!

1. Describe a typical Sunday from your childhood.
Well, since my Dad was always the pastor of the church, Sundays were very "sacred days."  In those days members of the church usually always had the pastor and his family over for lunch. I loved it as it was usually families with children my age and we would eat and then go play.  AND, Sundays were truly a "day of rest."  We  did nothing outside of church and it's activities. 
~my, how times have changed!~

2. How comfortable are you with uncertainty? Explain.

I guess it would depend on what it concerned.  If it is something that involves me directly, then I am not comfortable with it at all. Sometimes there is something I can do about it, sometimes there is nothing I can do but "cool my jets" and just wait it out.  But, one thing for sure, much of life is filled with uncertainty.
3. What have you accomplished recently that might be described as crafty, as in 'arts and crafts' crafty?  If crafty doesn't work for you, how about handy? Or both?
I know it was just the other day that I did something that was really handy and I was quite proud of myself.  But, for the life of me, I cannot remember what it was.  I referred to it as "yankee ingenuity" when I did it.  Oh, well, if I think of it, I'll sure let you know.

4. Have you ever worked in a 'food place'? What did you take away from the experience?No, not a "food place" but my very first job as a 16 year old was as cashier at a Kroger's grocery store.  Not really a food place but I sure did check out a whole lot of food.  And, I did it all by punching in the numbers with my hot little fingers.  There was certainly nothing called "scanners" back then. ~big laugh~

5. Cold turkey, talk turkey, what a recent days, which turkey phrase or idiom best applies to you and why? Click on the word turkey if you need to read more about the meaning behind each phrase. Humm.....have scratched my head, pondered and thought and cannot think of one that applies to me.  I'm quite sure I've been a turkey many times, I just cannot recall the last time right now.

6. If you could have any one guest join your Thanksgiving dinner table, who would it be?Now, this will likely be the most random answer of the day, but I'd love to have George Strait join our family.  And, perhaps he would bring his guitar and sing some for us afterwards.~be still my heart~  He seems like such a great guy and someone that would enjoy sitting around the table and being thankful to the Lord and His many blessings upon his life.  And, my family would be beside themselves if they thought he might show up.  We are big George fans and we were delighted that he won CMA's artist of the year.

7. What is one thing you must accomplish today? My Dad is having a test done at our local hospital this morning and I MUST get him there and then get him back to the assisted living facility where he resides.  Did I say that a care givers job never ends? 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

The Formidible Women (our birthday group) went over to one of our group's lake house this past Sunday afternoon.  We spent the night and I guess you might say we had a "pallet party."  This was the sight we had awaiting us on Monday morning. It was a fun little getaway and there will be more about it in another blog post. ~stay tuned~

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. Ha! Did you mean "scared" or "sacred" Sundays?! (I'm a pastor's kid too.) And, yes, I was happy to see George Strait win the top award. Although he isn't the type to run around on stage and doesn't have lots of glitz, the guy is a true country troubadour... and he's ageless. I think the award was a tip of the hat from the country community.

  2. What a beautiful sight! I'm sure it was even more beautiful to share it with friends. If George Strait ever comes to your Thanksgiving, can my hubby and I come too?! ;) That would be a fun dinner!!

  3. Yes, being PK's gives us a lot in common in that respect. We couldn't play sports on Sunday, but we could run around like crazy kids. I never quite understood the difference. Your weekend trip with the girls sounds like a great time to get-away and refresh. Ava Grace used to FT me every Sunday afternoon when her mother went to the grocery store. I was her play partner and loved it. Have a great rest of the week.

  4. Oh yet another thing in common....George Straight is an all time favorite over him! We saw him in concert twice, and he was just a stun. So if he is coming to your house for dinner, I might have to pop on over too, lol

    Enjoy your day!

  5. I love #1! Although I'm not a pastor's kid, our routine was the same. After church we were always going over to someone's house for lunch or having someone over and we could play all day until the evening service. :) Good memories.

  6. We would have our pastor over. The answers today are all about church on Sunday which is wonderful! So sweet of you to help your dad out.
    He is always in my prayers. Looks like a beautiful Lake House......

  7. Hope things went well for your dad. He is lucky to have you. What a gorgeous view! I need a lake house : ) I'm a huge George fan too!

  8. What a beautiful picture!! I kept looking at it and feeling I was right there. So glad you got some girl time away. I had to chuckle about you forgetting what handy thing you did.

  9. I'm not much of a country music fan, but I do like George Strait. I can't wait to hear about your getaway.

  10. Beautiful photo, a get away with the girls, sounds like fun. Yes a caregivers job is never done, your dad is blessed to have you help care for him

  11. The lake picture is just beautiful ~ how fun for you and your friends!


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!
