Another week of Hodge or is it Podge??

I'm participating once again in Joyce's mid-week Hodgepodge. 

Hodgepodge kind of fits my life this week...a little of this...a little of that...and a whole lot of not much accomplished.  Do you ever have days, weeks, months like that?  Those times when you feel like you're busier than busy but aren't seeing much in the results category.  [sigh]

Anyway on with the Podge...

1. What is the most amazing weather you've ever seen?
My favorite-ist most amazing weather is a crystal clear Autumn day when the sky is bluer than blue and the leaves are crunching on the ground, sort of like we had on our bike trip this fall.  The weather couldn't have been much more perfect. 

2. What is a sound or noise you love? 
oooh, there are so many, the sounds of a crackling fire, the rustle of the cornstalks in the fall, the hum of my sewing machine, the sound of a diesel truck... but I think what I like most of all, is the sound of the truck door when I'm waiting on DH to come home.

3. Do you like seafood? What's your favorite seafood dish?
Nope, not in any way, shape or form.  Gross, yuk, ewww!  End of that discussion!

4. What part of your day requires the most patience?
Driving home from work at the end of the day definitely can show a little bit of an impatient side of me.  It's not like I have to fight tons of traffic as some do who live in the city.  I only have to drive 10 miles on a state highway through the rural countryside but invariably I get behind someone going the speed limit (or less)!  How dare they do that!?!  when I just want to be home!  I don't speed much but I do tend to go a hair over the limit on occasion.  I keep telling my husband it's where my foot is comfortable on the accelerator but so far he's not buying it. I just don't understand.

5. What's your favorite shade of blue?
If we're talking decorating, navy blue.  In fact, I have a fair amount of it in our home.  If it's clothing, I like navy on that front too but am really diggin' that turquoise I'm seeing alot of lately.

6. Do people underestimate you?
I don't think underestimate necessarily but I think people tend to put me in a box and when I wander outside that box they're shocked.    I think we all do that to others at times, don't you?

7. When was the last time you had butterflies in your stomach?
Any time conflict arises, especially if it's within the family.  My stomach can twitter with the best of them.

8. Insert your own random thought here, and remember...I have a wooden spoon and I'm not afraid to use it.
Only 10 more days until our family Christmas!


  1. I've been thinking about you and your upcomming Christmas! (I'm just starting to try and figure out what to make ;O)

  2. I'm glad you answered today...I'm with you on the blue sky but I could live on seafood : )

    I discovered today I've been driving around without my license. It was in a dress purse and I never put it back in my wallet. I went all the way to my mom's last week and back without it. Oops. Good thing I wasn't stopped for speeding!

  3. I love the sound of a crackling fire too!

    My driving on the highway pet peeve is people who drive slow in the left lane when there's a car in the right lane doing the same speed and you can't get around them!

  4. Or when someone rides the left lane and you have to pass them on the right.
    I like your answer to what you tell your husband about speeding.

  5. I like your answers...but I LOVE seafood!
    Remind me, and I'll join this next week. I'm trying REAL hard to get back into writing.
