Hodgepodge Power!

Yay! It is Wednesday again! Are you joining us today? Come on, jump in and answer Joyce's questions From This Side of the Pond. They are fast and fun. So what is on tap for today?


1. It's October so let's get this out there first thing...have you jumped on the all-things-pumpkin bandwagon? How so?


I love pumpkins so I will have decorations inside and out with that theme! Maybe some smell goods in my Sensey with a pumpkin spice smell. I really don't go into that coffee and food and all things pumpkin. I like my decorations I can look at for a couple of months before Christmas rolls around.

And the picture at the end is going too far with the pumpkins!

2.  "We have more power than will; and it is often by way of excuse to ourselves that we fancy things are impossible." Francois Duc De la Rochefoucauld  
What's something you once thought impossible, but in hindsight see as more a matter of lack of will?


Right now it is exercise! LOL! 

3. The rose is America's National Flower, but every state also has its own (click here to see the list). Are you happy with yours? If you were in charge what would you declare your state's flower? If you're outside the U.S. what bloom would you like to see labeled as your country's national flower?



I am  from two states and I love both flowers! I would not change a thing. Both flowers bloom rampantly and it is what I think of when I think of those states.

Kansas: Sunflower

Texas: Bluebonnets

Around Ennis, Tx are bluebonnet fields you can go in and take pictures.
 
4. What have you lost interest in recently?



Going to the movies. I would rather rent and be at home, comfy in my jammies. Actually I have become one who really doesn't watch movies. It is weird!

5. In your opinion, who's the best living musician?


Funny you should ask because this year is the year of concerts! I would have to say as of right now and who I saw,  it's  Eddie Van Halen.

6. S'mores-love 'em or no? Ever make them indoors? Last time you sat around an outdoor fire? Are making s'mores and sitting round a fire pit on your autumn bucket list? Do you have an autumn bucket list?



Not a big s'mores fan. So it would not be on my bucket list. However I do love to sit around a fire and wouldn't mind sitting around it while y'all are eating your s'mores!

As for an autumn bucket list, I always want to go to the northeast to enjoy the changing of the leaves. Living in Texas, we have green leaves, brown leaves or no leaves. LT has taken me to New Hampshire, Boston, Rhode Island for one of my vacays. The hard part is taking off a week of work to get my leaf fix! Not sure what I will do this year.

7. Your favorite small town? Why?



WOW...hard! Ummmm well I guess it would be Buerne, Tx. It is small with the quaintest little shops! It is down in the Hill Country of Texas so it is beautiful with the green grass, lots of trees and rolling hills.

There are small towns oin my travels that I fell in love with like Sorento, Italy and Montecatini Terme, Italy. 

8. Insert your own random thought here. 


Off to another concert!
