Cool Hodgepodge!

Yay! It is Wednesday and that means….HODGEPODGE! A huge thank you to Joyce @ From This Side of the Pond for all your hard work to put this on for us! I invite everyone to participate. It is a great way to make new friends and get to know people! Funny how we all have the same things in common, huh?


1. Is your home air conditioned? If it's not air conditioned, is that by choice? Did you grow up with air conditioning? If not how did you cope with the heat? Share about a time or place you remember as being too hot-the temperature kind of hot, lest anyone be confused.


Of course my house is air conditioned. I live in Texas where the summers are triple digits.! I would love to live where it is cool (not cold) and can have the house opened up for fresh air. I grew up in Kansas so we needed A/C there too. I move from hot to hottest it seems! 

Sunday! I went to see Steely Dan at Gexa Energy Pavallian in Dallas. It is an outside venue…in Texas…in the summer. We sat on the hill and caught a breeze and waited for the sun to go down on our seats under the awning. When we went to our seats we were packed in like sardines in a can and There was no breeze AT ALL! I honestly felt I was going to pass out. Enjoyed the music though!!

2. What's something in your life right now that falls under the heading 'up in the air'?

Another easy question! My wedding! We do not have a date yet. I may have found a place but haven't really looked into because without a date, what can you do?! 

3. Your favorite light and airy dessert?

4 layer cream cheese chocolate pudding dessert. It goes by many names. I chose one that had the ingredients in it! Here is a recipe I found on Food.com. It is yummilicious and reminds me of home!

There is another recipe with pictures linked under "source" of this picture. I guess you could use any pudding, but why ruin a good thing! Chocolate is the best!

4. When did you last feel like you were 'floating on air'?

When LT and I went hiking in the Redwood Forest and saw all those ginormous trees! I was in awe of what God had created.

5. Airport, airmail, airtight, airhead...which have you most recently encountered? Explain.

Sad to say "airport" but it has been a year since I have been. I guess that isn't too recent but that's all I got! LOL

6.  Have you ever been to the Alps? If so where did you go? If not, is this a destination on your must-see list? If you were headed that direction this summer, which of the following would be your preferred activity...a gentle walk, a serious walk, a bike ride, a boat ride around one of the lakes, or summer snow skiing?

Unfortunately I have never been to the Alps. I would like to, but just not sure if I will make it. If I did go to the Alps I would want a gentle to moderate walk. I want to enjoy the scenery but not damage myself getting to a destination. Oh and I want a trail! No compasses or tents for me. I'll do nature, but not full on nature! Too old!

7. What is one saying or phrase that was considered 'cool' when you were growing up?

Wow. I grew up in the 80s. I think most of the sayings I use now come from the 80s!  "Awesome" , "Bite me", "The Bomb", "Burn!", "Fugly", "spazzing, spaz, or spaz out", "veggin' or vegging out" and the most popular "where's the beef?"

8. Insert your own random thought here.


Not that I'm complaining! LOL
