The Wednesday Hodgepodge




This is Joyce's 441st Hodgepodge entry.  Folks that's a whole lot of Hodgepodges.  She started this fun link back in 2010.  Thanks Joyce, you are "all that and a bag of chips."

1. How did you name your blog and do you now wish you had thought about it maybe another five minutes before hitting publish? Would you change your blog title if it were not a huge pain in the derriere? 

When our first grandchild (a boy)  was born in 2008,  I decided I would start journaling and perhaps one day give the journal to him.  I told my daughter my thoughts and she told me I should start a blog instead.  Well, I hardly even knew what a blog was, much less how to begin one.  But, 13 years later and here I am.  I named my blog after my grandmother name, CiCi and thought it sounded neat with Corner.  I love the name of my blog and it has never entered my mind to change it.  

2. What bill do you least like to pay? 


I don't really mind paying any of them that I can think of at this time.  I do often think of the amount of money we spend to have cable, internet and cell phones, but I don't want to be without any of them, so I continue to pay for their services.  ~big smile~

3. What is your favorite word? Okay okay, calm down. How about one of your favorite words? 


This caused me to chuckle.  My daughter would likely say my favorite word is "just."  I didn't realize "just" how much I used it when I first started blogging until one day she gave me some helpful criticism.  Once she made me aware of it, I have been real conscious to not overuse it.  But, I have lots of favorite words that's "just" one of them. ~chuckle~

4. Is the glass half full or half empty? Elaborate. 


I guess it depends on what day it is.  But, I would be quick to say that the older I have gotten the more the glass stays half full.  It's harder on some days for sure.


5. Were you here for that very first Hodgepodge post? If so, were your answers then similar to what they are today? Tell us what was happening in your life in November of 2010? 


I do believe I was here for the VERY first one but, for the life of me, I could not pull it up and finally just gave up. ~frustration~ 

I'm sure I was giving thought to the upcoming holidays and Hubby was hunting (pictured above), something that he rarely does now.

6. Insert your own random thought here. 


Yesterday was my Dad's 92nd birthday.  My brother and his wife drove over for the day to join us in celebrating him.  We served cake and ice cream to all the residents at the assisted living and he felt very celebrated.  All in all, to be 92 he is doing well.  Somedays he says he wants to make it to 100, other days he says he's ready to go to his heavenly home.  I pray that when his time comes that the good Lord will take him very quietly and quickly.  Until then, I pray his days will be filled with as much happiness as possible at this point in his life.

  1. Well I checked after you mentioned it and you commented on the first post but had just discovered the hop so didn't link until post number 2. Still you were an early adopter : ) I've feel like I've known you for years and we've never met in person. That is something I love about blogging. I also like the word just and probably overuse too. It just works-ha!

  6. This was an interesting throwback for Joyce to do. I'm sorry I wasn't part of the beginning, but heaven knows I had enough on my plate in 2010. I gave you credit for getting me into blogging as well as joining the Hodgepodge, so thank you again.

  7. Hi Lea... I get helpful criticism from my girls all the time. The latest was that I talk too much about the weather. By the way, it's cloudy today. Happy birthday to your handsome Dad. Have a wonderful weekend.
