Wednesday Hodgepodge

It's Wednesday, you know the drill, Joyce makes up the questions and we answer them.  She made me think way harder than I wanted to on the very 1st one.  But, I gave it a stab!

1. Describe love using all five senses.
Sight - evokes our feelings of love
Hearing - hearing the words I love you 
Smelling - we can smell the warmth of love in a hug or a bouquet of flowers or our favorite perfume or cologne that our love is wearing
Taste -through a kiss, or a shared meal
Touch - a hand held tight, a warm embrace

We would most likely think of these descriptions of love when thinking of our spouse but some could also be descriptions of others that we love, family and friends. 
NOTE - I cannot wait to read the varying answers to this question.

2. February is Canned Food Month. What's your favorite food that comes straight from a can?
 Pretty much any and all of the Progresso Soups.  They are the best unless you can have homemade. The Chicken Noodle is my favorite.

3. A principal in a UK school recently sent home a letter to parents requesting they (the parents!) dress appropriately when escorting their children to/from school (basically saying please don't wear your pajamas) You can read the letter here. It's gotten a lot of publicity, both positive and negative. Your thoughts? And do/did you ever make the school run (or hit Starbucks, Walmart, etc) in your pjs? 
Well, I am really astounded that this would be necessary but I have to remember we have become a very sloppy and casual society.  I do not think it necessary to be dressed to the "9" but surely they could put on a pair of jeans and tee shirt.  And, NO, I have never worn my PJ's out in public and you can know that I have lost my mind if I ever do.  But, I am seldom in our local Wal-Mart that I don't see men and women in their PJ's and the women often have on the fuzzy slippers.  I mean, really???

4. Crew neck, V-neck, turtleneck, scoop neck...which is most prevalent in your wardrobe?
 You would find mainly V-necks and turtlenecks and of course, the turtlenecks are for colder weather only.  I do have come crew and scoop but very few.  They are just not my favorite style.

5. I read here recently a list of four things to avoid so you wake up happier. They were late night snacks, hitting the snooze button, social media just before bed/upon waking, checking emails.
Are you guilty of any of these behaviors? Which on that list do you need to work harder at avoiding?
        I do no late night snacking nor do I ever hit the snooze button.  But, I will often take one last quick look at my email and FB before turning out the light.  Likely a habit that I need to break.  I do not do any of that until I've been up a good while in the morning.  I have too many other things that I need/want to be doing when I first get up.

6. Share something you remember about a house you lived in as a child? Of all the homes you lived in as a child, which did you love best?
 We always lived in very, very modest homes (and lots of them) and I use to dream of living in a two story house.  Well, my Dad became the pastor of a church in Virginia when I was 13 years old that had a lovely two story brick house as the parsonage.  I was beside myself with excitement when we moved in.  It had the high, high ceilings, lots and lots of windows, beautiful wooden floors and I felt like a Princess.

7.Your favorite movie based on a true story?
Remember the Titans - a great football movie and I'm not a football fan but this was a great movie.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
Goodness gracious, this little boy "finally" lost a tooth this past Sunday.  He has been waiting very impatiently for this event. Many of Clancy's friends have lost a tooth or teeth some time ago so this was of utmost importance to this little fella.  He doesn't have to wait any longer.  The rest will probably start falling out now and he'll be singing "all I want for Christmas is my two front teeth" this next Christmas.

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Clancy's pic just gave me the biggest smile. You can see the joy in his eyes!! I haven't had Progresso soup in years, but now I will pick some up. Have a wonderful week, Lea.

  2. Another great movie title. So many have been mentioned I didn't think of when I answered mine. I love the toothless grin at that age!

  3. I LOVE those soups too, and they have gluten free ones! I TOO loved that movie...but I love a sports movie, lol. Yay for Clancy...hes' such a cutie!

  4. I enjoyed reading your answers, today. Clancy is precious, and his grin tells me how pleased he is with losing that first tooth :)

  5. Alise was always later than her friends, too, when it came to losing teeth. She was wishing for her two front teeth one Christmas and it was so funny! Now it's time to start talkinga bout braces! Ugh!

  6. Clancy's toothless grin is just the cutest! Hope the Tooth Fairy was generous! Remember the Titans is one of my faves, too! I'm with you...Progresso Soups are hard to beat!

  7. I thought that is how you'd answer the pjs question :) My son still gets excited when he loses a tooth (well actually when one gets loose and then he has to work on it until it comes out) and he is 10. I usually tell him to go show his father ;)

  9. No doubt how we feel about the pj's, is there. And we both lived in parsonages, but it sounds like you might have had at least one nice one. I'm so grateful precious memories weren't dependent on the condition of the houses in which they took place. My dad was so handy that he kept the outside looking as neat as possible and mom did the best she could with the inside. I treasure those memories.

  10. I don't like how lax our society has gotten in dressing. I've seen people get on airplanes with pajama pants. I love how excited you were about the house you lived in with the high ceilings. How cute that you felt like a Princess. Great movie choice. What a sweet picture of Clancy and hooray for the tooth coming out!

  11. Like you, we keep Progresso soups on hand, especially the ones that are labeled, "Light."

    I don't understand why people wear their fuzzy slippers outside of the house! They get dirty!

    As for the house you enjoyed in Virginia, we spent 4 years in Virginia, just outside of the DC area with one of my husband's job assignments. All the houses were so interesting and pretty.

    Congrats to Clancy on his first lost tooth!!


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!
