Patiently Hodgepodging!

Hey, welcome back! Glad y'all stopped by today. I hope you like today's Hodgepodge. Joyce @ From This Side of the Pond is also doing a word of the day for the month. Her focus word was "patience" Cool how things all go together!

So let's get this party started. I hope you join us!



1. What's something that has recently 'tried your patience'?
 
Ummm...setting a wedding date? Still no news on that front. Sorry people! 

2. Do you think patience comes to us naturally or is it something you have to learn as you grow? On a scale of 1-10 generally how patient are you? (1=I blow up at the drop of a hat and 10=I've got all the time in the world).

I think it is both. Sometimes you are just innately patient; it is in your nature. But I believe in certain situations you patience is tried and tried again. Things like standing in line when you are in a hurry (or have someone incompetent working), or maybe with your own children/spouse you lose patience quicker. 

I know for me I have more patience at work than I do at home or on the road. I will admit to road rage, but just do what you are supposed to do on the road and we will both be happy! LOL!

If I had to scale myself I would put it about a 5-7 depending. I don't blow up easy (yeah, talk to Lt and see what he says!LOL) but I don't lay down and take it either.

3. Share about a time when you felt like you could fly. Or a time you wished you could fly. Or a time you felt like you were flying.
 
I wish I could fly right now to the northeast for some fall leaves and cool weather! Texas is back in the mid 90s again! Ummm, when are we going to get autumn started down here?

4. Your favorite song with the word fly in the title or lyrics, or your favorite song that relates to flying in some way?

Fly From the Inside by Shinedown is the first thing to pop into my head. I love the bass in the song and when LT slaps his bass to it...oooooweeeee is it sexy! Sorry for the TMI, but there it is!

But that might be a little too hard rock for you so my next choice is "Fly Like an Eagle" from the Steve Miller Band. Great song from across the ages! 



5. What's in your fall picnic basket and where are we picnicking in your neck of the woods this time of year?
 
Picnicking in Texas will deal with shorts and sitting inside or in the shade! But in my basket would be some BBQ and Shiner Bock. Both are 100% TEXAS!

6.  Carpentry, electrical, plumbing, landscaping...which skill would you most like to possess and how would you put that skill to use today?
 
Carpentry because we have things around the house that needs to be taken care of like some foundation issues that are starting to show. Texas is infamous of their shifting dirt and settling houses. Ugh!!

If I was a carpenter then I would make cool things for the house like a headboard, coffee table, and cute shelves and things.


7. What's something you think is too expensive to justify buying lately?
 
Tieks shoes. I am out of control for these black Tiek shoes. It is hard to justify spending $175 on a pair of ballet slippers even if Oprah says they are the best thing she has ever owned! I will confess to already owning a pair and love them. I am needing a new pair of black flats, but dang this is hard to swallow! Honestly....I will eventually buy them. I want them that bad!

 8. Insert your own random thought here. 
Next weekend is my friend Holli from Holli's Hoots and Hollers Holli-ween party and I can not wait to go!...Hence the reason needing the black ballet shoes from Tieks! Dang you Holli forcing me to buy shoes! LOL I love ya girl!

Oh and I have to give a presentation at work in front of my colleagues. It is part of a book study. At least one other person in our 4 person group helped out! I hate these kind of days!
