Wednesday Hodgepodge




Yay another Wednesday, another Hodgepodge! I love to answer questions and Joyce From This Side of the Pond is dishing them out! So let's get started.

1. When is your next big deadline? What's it for? 

Ummmm….something for school, I am sure. We have a field trip to Group Dynamix May 26 and then May 28 we are holding a banquet for my group of kiddos so I guess those two things. You know, getting everything ready, reminding students, getting field trip forms, finding something to wear, etc

Then we have the end of school on June 5 so I have all those lovely grades to post and credit slips to fill out. Paperwork really. But I don't want to stay late, so got to get all my ducks in a row and end the year early!

2. May is National Barbecue Month  Do you prefer cooking indoors or out? What's the best thing about a barbecue? What was the last thing you cooked on an outdoor grill?

Lt is my BBQ-er. He does a mean grill. 
We mostly cook chicken or hamburgers. For those quick meals he will use the propane grill. But for those awesome BBQ nights, he loves (as do I) the taste of charcoal briquets.  I think it is because he is a firefighter and can play with fire, because let me tell you I can feel the flames shooting in the air!



3. What is one thing on your 'never again' list?

Scary things: roller coasters, haunted houses, scary movies….Nope, nada, never again! 

4. What's something that annoys you about people your age? Something you love about your generation?

Good and bad of my generation. Wow that is a hard one! I say good (because it is easier) is the music that came out… 80s baby! The way that we grew up: outside because we didn't really have the technology to be plugged into a computer, the low threats of pedophiles, terrorists, kidnapping, etc (I grew up in a really small town), being home when the church bells ring. We remember these times and how good they were and how good we had it. 

Now the annoyance of my generation. I guess maybe the helicopter moms or those parents who want better for their children (nothing wrong with that!) but end up enabling them and giving them a sense of entitlement. They help their children get out of consequences which really doesn't help them to grown

I do have a pet peeve that annoys me about anyone not age specific. This really needs to be a public service announcement: People, close your gas flap after pumping. Don't drive around with your flap open!

You just don't know how hard it is to resist closing your flap at a stop light!

5. Lilac, iris, hyacinth, pansy...your favorite purple flower?

Lilacs or Irises. They both remind me of home and mama. Lilacs for the smell and Irises for the look. My sister K and I have batted around the idea of getting an iris tattoo in honor of mama. It is in the thinking stages, but I am ready for #2! LT isn't down with it, but….

6. Whats a song that always calms you down?

Tough one because I love the songs that boost me up. The fast beat and up tempo gets me going in the  morning or anytime really. So calms me down…hmmm… Maybe "We Lift You High" from LifeChurch.



7. What's the last thing you donated?

Funny you should mention this. LT has been going through storage boxes so we are getting a nice little pile of odds and ends to donate. Mostly it will be clothes and household things, decor, accessories, etc. Hopefully we can do another round and purge even more. More purging more room in our little house!

8. Insert your own random thought 


I think I am still in the "purple" phase!
