Wednesday Hodge Podge

It's Wednesday so  join Joyce over at  From This Side of the Pond.  Grab the questions, answer them and link up with the rest of us. 

1. Using what's in your frig right now what sort of meal would you be able to make for guests who are knocking at the front door this very minute?
Not much in there, cleaned it out Monday.  Just some leftover dirty rice from last night, and plenty of eggs and milk.

2. What is something about yourself that you hope will change but that probably never will?
Being so impatient.  I am a now person.  Maybe it comes from my Mom when we were younger and told to do something we did it right then.  We never said just a minute, or argued that we didn't want to do it.

3. What's something about yourself that you hope will never change?
I would say my faith and love for Jesus, but I hope it grows each and every day.  Other than that I'm drawing a blank.

4. Do you usually send serious or funny greeting cards? Why?
Most of the time I try to find one with a Bible verse or some other nice verse on it.  So I guess that would be serious.

5. Bird watching, shell gathering, or star gazing- your choice for whiling away the hours?
Shell gathering, love to walk down the beach and look for shells.
6. Do you double or triple check things? If so, what?
Most of the time I do.  I always double check that I have my keys, purse, and cell phone before I close the front door when going off.   I always double check that Scott has everything he needs for work, and that Makayla has what she needs for school before they walk out the door. 

7. What's your favorite place for people watching?
The mall, or Wal-Mart.  Some of them makes you wonder did they look in the mirror before they left their house.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
If you haven't entered by giveaway you can do so by this Friday.  It's for a 25.00 Wal-Mart gift Card.


  1. Shell collecting is one of my favorite things to do. I need a beach trip!

  2. I love your answer for #3- I agree.
    I think the same thing when I people watch- LOL.

  3. I enjoy collecting shells but haven't been to the beach in ages. We have a jar full of shells that we have collected.

  4. I agree, you can see just about anything at Wal-mart!!! What are some people thinking?!!

    About the Peanut Festival... No, I don't have any plans to go. I'm giving Ed the weekend at home because I'm dragging him to the beach again next weekend! LOL I'd love to go and experience the Peanut Festival sometime, though. I've never been--and we love peanuts!

  5. I'm horribly impatient. I wish I could be better about it but I'm very much a NOW person. You know your bad when fast food isn't even fast enough!!

  6. I wish I could be more patient, too. :-(

    I'll meet you at the beach ... we can walk along and look for shells. Imagine how much fun we'd have. ;-)

  7. You could whip up a batch of fried rice with what you have in the fridge!

  8. Great answers - can you make rice pudding? Then I'm on my way. A lot of beach goers this week.

  9. stopping in to say hi! i haven't been around much but wanted you to know that I think of you often!

  10. I am not very patient either. NOW is so much better than WAIT. LOL ;)

    I just entered your Wal-Mart gift card giveaway. I hope I win :)

  11. People watching at Walmart is a hoot...especially if you go in the wee hours of the morning when people go shopping in their pj's and curlers!!

  12. Love your answer to #2. When did it become okay to negotiate with one's children?

  13. Enjoyed reading your answers to Joyce's questions. Have a wonderful weekend.
