Wednesday Hogepodge

From this Side of the Pond

Good to be back with the Hodgepodgers this week.  We were on our way home from seeing our Oklahoma family last Wednesday. But, I'm back with it today.

1. Ever played the game Farkle? Are you a risk taker? In games only or also in life? 

I have played Farkle and think it's a fun game.  I don't mind taking a risk in a game, I mean, it's just a  game.  In life, not so much.  I mean, it's my life. ~smile~

2. What's your favorite thing about your yard or whatever outdoor space you may have?

This picture (taken yesterday afternoon) is of a large portion of our backyard and I love everything about it.  My husband LOVES a beautiful yard and sees to it that ours is kept in pristine condition with beautiful presentation.  The landscape along with the pond makes for such a relaxing haven. I enjoy looking out our windows all across the back of our house to see this beautiful view.  

3. Tell us about the most interesting building you've seen or been in.

The On-Line Buzzletter: Quebec City Trip #30:Massive Cathedral in ...

Oh, my!  I've seen many interesting buildings in my lifetime but St. Anne's Cathedral in Quebec City would be one of the most beautiful and interesting.  The architecture inside and out is unbelievable!

4. In this current season of social distancing, what's something you've come to realize you take for granted in more ordinary times? Do you think you'll make a conscious effort to appreciate whatever that 'it' is once normal life resumes?

I definitely took for granted going anywhere I wanted to go when I wanted to go without any restrictions.  Indeed, I will never view going and doing the same once I get my freedom back. ~It cannot happen soon enough~

5. Share a favorite song with a springtime flower in the lyrics somewhere.

I Never Promised You A Rose Garden by Lynn Anderson.  I have not thought about that song in a long, long time, but, it was definitely a favorite of mine "back in the day."

6. Insert your own random thought here.

I felt like this gal looks yesterday.  I met up with friends for a little shopping and lunch.  YES!  Tuesday Morning is open and a couple of small gift and home decor shops.  Can I just tell you that I was beside myself with excitement.  We don't even enter Phase 1 of reopening our state until this Friday, so not sure how these places were able to open.  But, hey, I didn't ask any questions, I just went.  Yes, this Friday, our fair state enters Phase 1 of reopening, we are lagging a bit behind but "it is what it is" and I have to accept it.  But, I DO have a hair appointment next Tuesday, the 19th. ~not a day too soon, I assure you~  Now, to schedule a pedicure and I'll be doing much better.  Our senior facilities will be a part of Phase 3, so that means mid to late June at least.  I am getting to visit with my Daddy on the front porch of his assisted living facility,  but I want to be able to go to his room.  Thankfully he has handled all of these very well.

Abundant blessings!

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Your back yard is truly a haven and Tommy does a masterful job of keeping it that way. When I heard Tuesday Morning was opening last week, I was there bright and early on opening day to replenish our Skinny Syrup supply. Other than Kroger and Lowes I haven't been anywhere else. I will see my hairdresser on the 21st and hoping to go to Dallas the next day. Hope you like my new blog look.

  2. You have a lovely calming view and I know its good for the soul. We have opened up a good bit this week, but I'm still not going anywhere other than the grocery. And next week the hair salon which I am looking forward to probably a little too much : ) Enjoy your day!

  3. Beautiful outside view Lea. I use to listen to Lynn Anderson on records with my mom. Still love to hear her some of old songs. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  4. What a beautiful backyard! It would be so relaxing to sit and look at that view. Have a good week.

  5. Wow, your yard is stunning! It looks like a park. Glad you were able to get out a little bit. Our opening was supposed to be Friday but has been extended.

  6. What a beautiful yard and view, Lea. Our state is way behind. We probably won't go through Stage 1 for a couple of weeks. Have a great time enjoying your freedom.

  7. Your back acres are amazing. I could sit and enjoy that all day long for sure. Hats off to your husband for keeping things pristine. I'd need a staff of 10 to get my yard in shape. Woohoo for being able to walk about in nice shops!! I'm wondering just how I could get over the 375 miles to my favorite hairdresser in Seattle to get my mop in shape! Have a great Wednesday!

  8. You have such a pretty back yard. I like that it is overlooking the pond.
    I'm glad your Dad is doing alright with the situation. Have a nice day!

  9. Your back yard and the lake beyond it -- stunning! I would love seeing that every day.

    I'm glad you could do some shopping this week. I have, too, as Florida is definitely embracing Phase 1 right now.

  10. Beauty all around you! I got out a bit yesterday and loved it. Things will be back to somewhat normal I pray and I promise to never take it for granted. Enjoy your 1st day of phase 1!!!! HUGS!

  11. Omg I Finally Got Helped  !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman  and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out..  I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact  Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email or Call/WhatsApp +2347012841542


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!
